Lost Ark Abyssal Dungeons and How to Unlock Them

Learn about Lost Ark Abyssal Dungeons and How to Unlock them.

What are Lost Ark Abyssal Dungeons

Abyssal Dungeons are weekly content that is a hybrid between Chaos Dungeons and Guardian Raids. In this guide we’ll go over Lost Ark Abyssal Dungeons and how to unlock them. You are required to party up with other players for these dungeons. The goal is progressing through the dungeon and defeating a specific set of bosses. Coming prepared for the Abyssal dungeon is important because in order to avoid group wipes the bosses require knowledge of their unique mechanics.

In Abyssal Dungeons, if your group fails, you can regroup and retry the bosses until you succeed. However, if you die during a boss fight you will not be able to respawn until the group either defeats the boss or the group wipes. Players are limited in the amount of potions they can use, and each character can clear a dungeon one time a week. Clearing a dungeon gives you a gold reward. Players can only receive gold rewards from Abyssal Dungeons 6 times a week across your entire roster.

After talking with the Equipment Crafter you will be able to select a piece of gear and craft it as long as you have the required materials. Any of this gear can be dismantled in order to get back the cost it takes to craft it. This allows you to easily obtain a full Abyss gear set after you are able to clear a full set of Abyssal Dungeons.

This mechanic can also be used to reroll the quality on your gear by continuously dismantling and recrafting the gear to get the quality you need. For more information on gear progress see our Lost Ark Gear Progression Guide.
