Publisher Amazon Games and developer Smilegate RPG announced Lost Ark adds new Glaivier and Destroyer classes in a new update.
The free-to-play MMO presented a roadmap for content coming in April and May that includes 2 new character classes – the Glaivier and the Destroyer.
Here’s a rundown on both new classes:
Lost Ark adds new Glaivier and Destroyer classes
The Glaivier – April 2022
Practicing an artistic and deadly form of martial arts, the Glaivier slices and dices her way through the battlefield, weaving together attacks with her spear and glaive. The Glaivier has two distinct skill sets which can be swapped between— Focus and Flurry— with each stance and skill set represented by one of her two weapons. The shorter spear is used to unleash a furious barrage in the Flurry stance, while the longer glaive harnesses Focus stance for gracefully lethal strikes and sweeping attacks. While certain builds may focus your attention onto one of these weapons, an effective Glaivier can maximize their potential by creating balance between the two stances, building up energy in one stance which grants an impactful stat-boost when swapping to the other. The Glaivier will join the Wardancer, Soulfist, Striker, and Scrapper as the fifth Martial Artist Advanced Class.
Destroyer – May 2022
We’ve talked about the cataclysmic impact that Warriors have on the battlefield, but nothing embodies this better than the hammer-wielding Destroyer. Armed with a variety of skills centered around charging into the heart of the fray, their hammer attacks are so catastrophically crushing that Destroyers can bend gravity to their will— slowing, launching, pushing and pulling enemies— whatever it takes to utterly, beyond a shadow of a doubt, destroy them. The Destroyer will join the Berserker, Paladin, and Gunlancer as the fourth Warrior Advanced Class.
While Lost Ark adds new Glaivier and Destroyer classes in the coming two months, Smilegate RPG has been consistently trying to squash bots amidst their ongoing updates.
In addition to the new classes, Lost Ark plans to release a new continent, South Vern, new raids, quality of life updates, and more.
