Lost Ark is about to become one of the biggest games on Steam. As it is an MMOARPG, you can expect different currencies in play. Gold is one of the rarer currencies required to trade or sell within the auction houses in Lost Ark. They can be converted into other currencies like royal crystals and blue crystals in exchange. In addition to that, it is also used to upgrade your gear and can be traded with players. So, here’s our guide on how to get gold in Lost Ark.
Spend time with NPC Rapport
Players can interact with NPCs in the form of Rapport. They can give gifts, complete side quests, and further dialogue with certain characters in the game, and if they do this enough, some NPCs will give players gifts. These gifts can sometimes net the players a nice amount of gold, so it's worth going out of the way to do this.
Complete collection tasksWhat’s the point? In Lost Ark, there are countless different collectibles that you can take with you. However, many of them cost more money than they bring you in the end.
The objects that you should also focus on are the so-called masterpieces. Unfortunately, you will only find these relatively rare, but you can also find some here relatively early in the game.
The more masterpieces you find, the more Los Ark rewards you for it. By the way, you don’t even have to hand in the masterpieces, you just have to own them to bag the rewards.
How does this work? Masterpieces are collectible items in Lost Ark. You get them by completing various tasks, quests, or by filling adventure tomes.
If you have collected some of them, you can get a reward from the NPC Alfonso on the sunflower island west of Pleccia. The painter just wants to see the masterpieces, so you don’t lose them.
In total, you can find 38 different masterpieces in Lost Ark. Alfonso always rewards you for this in ascending sections. You get gold for the first time when you have collected 20 masterpieces. Then Alfonso will reward you with 3,000 gold.
At 30 masterpieces, he again jumps 5,000 Gold . If you then manage to collect 34, there is another 8,000 gold on the high edge and if you have found all 38, the sunflower painter will give you another 13,000 gold.
In total, you can earn 29,000 gold by collecting the masterpieces. However, this is a one-off, which is why it is not a long-term source of gold income.
What masterpieces can you easily get? If you consistently focus on the collection tasks in the game, you will get many of the masterpieces thrown after you. Exploration in the game is most likely to get you further if that’s what you want to focus on.
You will receive a masterpiece for each of the following tasks, which are relatively easy to earn:
