For every raid that you complete during the event, you will earn items, which can positively impact on your gameplay.
Lost Ark: Mystic Raid guide
The Mystic Abyss Raid reveals that Guardian Mystic, formerly known as the Herald of Vairgrys and the Ark Carrier, has started casting dangerous msits from the permeated chaos and has to be vanquished in this new, limited-time Abyss Raid.
It is up to you to defeat Mystic, along with other bosses in his lair. In order to defeat the Mystic, you need a character with a minimum level of 1302. Moreover, you have to form a party with other Lost Ark players.
The party has 8 players, but it is recommended that you use 2 ranged damage dealers, 1 high stagger damage dealer, and 1 Pally or Bard support player. You should also use ranged characters, as Mystic is deadly on melee characters.
Once your party is ready, you can enter the Mystic Raid, but keep in mind that there are different phases of the fight. After successfully completing each of these phases, you will have 2 options: receive your reward and complete the raid, or continue the battle to earn more valuable items.
There are different gates in the Mystic Raid, and you have to complete one gate before you can move on to the following gate.
Once you have completed the raid, you will be rewarded with 150 Mystic Tokens, which you can use to exchange for these items:
- Limited Edition Toy
- Legendary Rapport
- Aldebaran Gift Set
It is worth noting that the raid is only active for 3 weeks, which means that you can obtain 450 Mystic Tokens. It is recommended that you carefully consider which items you want to purchase since you cannot purchase them all.
Recommended combat items
Even though you do not need items to complete the Mystic raid, using items will make it easier to complete. The table below lists some of the items that you can use during the Mystic Raid:
|Health point potion||When used, it restores some of your character’s health points|
|Sacred Charm||This item helps your party members to remove a random debuff in an area|
|Dark Grenade||It leaves a 20 percent defence debuff on the target when attacked|
|Whirlwind Grenade||During gate 2, players require this item to stagger the boss to avoid getting wiped|

Can early game players complete the raids?
