What is Universal Storage in Lost Ark?
Universal Storage is a mechanic that stores items for you until you claim them using a character. Before we learn more about it thanks to user Ethibasi on the Lost Ark forums for the information about it. You can check their discussion thread here.
The items in the Universal storage are shared between your characters in different servers until you claim them. That means they are available for any of your characters to claim. But once you use a character to claim them the item will become character bound or roster bound.
Items that you claim from Universal Storage can’t be put back. So in case, you have a good item but not a good character you might want to hold on to it before claiming.
