Curious about what the Lost Ark's Abyss Dungeons are? We've got you covered.

Having been released a few years earlier in South Korea, Lost Ark has had plenty of time to add different aspects of gameplay into the MMO's scope. However, this specific part of the game shouldn't surprise most MMO fans. After all, dungeons have been an integral part of multiplayer spaces since their inception as an avenue of connection and gear progression in any game.

Abyss Dungeons are no exception.

Lost Ark Abyss Dungeons Explained

Players can get into Abyss Dungeons by visiting Northern Vern around level 50. At the conclusion of the Blue World quests, culminating in "Waiting and Leaving," players will be greeted with the notification that they can now tackle Abyss Dungeons.

This content is meant to be run in teams of four players and cannot be solo'd. Additionally, each dungeon can only be run three times on every single character per week with some being role/class locked. Running these dungeons is an important part of the process of crafting greater, more powerful gear. Typically, players can find the materials they need for this gear inside each dungeon.

Abyss Dungeons can be found on the mini-map by locating the blue dungeon icon. By visiting the location marked by this icon, players will be able to learn everything they need to know about that specific Abyss Dungeon. At the time of writing, there are nine Abyss Dungeons, with several sharing specific zones. Below, we've listed all nine Abyss Dungeons with their required item level and greater zone:
