Lost Ark Twitch Drops

The first week of launch for Lost Ark also includes a Twitch Drop campaign, with an exciting race between NA, LA and EU streamers. You can watch our stream live on our Fextralife Twitch channel as we’ll also be taking part in the race as part of EU, come join us!

Each region will need 3000 points in order to unlock Twitch drops, the first being the Arksesia Paper Hat Chest.

Earning Drops

In order to gain a drop you will need to watch four hours of streams between February 8 at 9 a.m. PST (5 p.m. UTC) and February 28 at 12 a.m. PST (8 a.m. UTC). Only Legends of Lost Ark participants will be able to offer one Drop at a time, so you can check the leaderboard to see who has unlocked the Drops.

Rewards

Further rewards will be unlocked by achieving Objectives, with each Objective rewarding Twitch participants with Bronze Founder’s Packs to give away to their community. These objectives include easier ones such as setting sail by boat for the first time to much more challenging ones such as clearing the 50th floor of Tower of Shadows without using battle items. Each objective has a number of points that will go towards the overall Leaderboard.

Bronze Founder’s Packs include a three day head start, Founder’s Exclusive Pet, 30 Day Crystalline Aura, and Founder’s Title.

How to Claim Drops

As per usual you’ve got to be in it, to win it. You will need to activate your Twitch Drops for your Lost Ark account, then watch participating streamers to earn the Drop. You will then see a call-out Twitch chat prompt once you’ve claimed it.
