Here’s how to complete Guardian Raids in Lost Ark:

  • Before starting any of the raids, you will be given a choice to harvest their souls or not. Choose to harvest the souls to wield greater loot.
  • You will have to coordinate and strategize with your team to defeat the Guardian.
  • The daily limit to grind on Guardian raids is two. But failing to complete a raid won’t be accounted for in your daily limit. You will be able to reset and retry to complete the raids.
  • As you start the raid, your team will receive three respawns with a tickling twenty-minute timer. If your team doesn’t survive after three respawns, the raid will fail.
  • After completing your first raid Ur ‘nil, the next raid becomes available to you, and so on.
  • If you want to unlock the next level of Guardian raids, you will have to complete all four raids in that certain level of difficulty.
  • The first levels of these raids are pretty straightforward, to begin with. As you go further, you will encounter the Guardians that are more buffed and smarter. Smart because these high-tier Guardians will run around to waste your time. You can equip flares to track down these Guardians. We suggest you pick the right team with the right strategy to deal with these Guardians.

Rewards for Completing Guardian Raids

After you have successfully slain the Guardian, you can harvest their souls to receive the loot. Guardian raids are the best way to receive jewelry, upgrade materials to craft, and ability stones for engravings. Look for the expected rewards before you begin with the raid. As you go for subsequent higher levels of difficulties, you will receive higher and better loot.
