Lost Ark is a fantasy MMO, and it has it’s own unique quirks. Being a major timesink similar to other Korean MMOs, there are a ton of interwoven systems to deal with. There are obviously both PvE and PvP options to fool around with. But before you jump into the deep end, it can’t hurt to learn some basics. This guide will answer one common question, how do you leave a dungeon in Lost Ark. Let’s get started.
There are plenty of other things to learn about Lost Ark beyond this simple stuff. Strongholds that act as bases for crafting, seem to have some folks confused. There’s also that premium sub that some players are curious about. Doing things like dismantling gear is pretty important too. Learning how to do that can help your crafting efforts a bit. Get out there and start exploring, adventurer.
How to leave a dungeon in Lost Ark
Much like other elements of the game, the Songs system comes into play here as well. To leave a dungeon in Lost Ark, you will need to use the Song of Escape from the Sheet Music menu. It’s kind of strange to use music so heavily in a modern MMO. but here we are. Maybe the devs are major Zelda fans. Anyway, back to the guide. Like the other Songs in the game, you will assign one at a time to the F2 key. Pressing that key will play the assigned song. Play the Song of Escape and you will exit the dungeon.
Each Song is attached to a main scenario quest. The Song of Escape is part of the rewards for the Legends and Fairytales quest.
A better way to manage your music beyond just assigning them to the right key and hotswapping them is to use the remap and hotbar functions. You can drag an icon from the Sheet Music menu to any slot on the hotbar to have it easily clickable at all times. Those of use with gaming mice might be able to map the action to a mouse button, if we want. Although the hotbar solution is definitely easier. If you do go for a hardware-based option, be sure not to go overboard with automation and macros, as that can get you banned.
Having familiarity with the way Lost Ark controls is key to doing well in the various dungeons and game modes. Make sure to learn about the cards system before you take on endgame PvE and PvP. There’s a ton of power locked away in those pieces of digital cardboard for your builds.
