Over the next three months, looking towards the end of 2022, we are going to tell two main stories.
In these months we will advance towards the incursion of the Brelshaza horde, one of the most complex, unique and dangerously beautiful in Lost Ark. In October, as we get closer to the big clash against the commander of the Phantom Legion, we will be adding new strikes for the heroes of Arkesia to prepare your teamwork and skills to master never-before-seen mechanics, as well as progression events to advance and get development materials. Brelshaza will arrive in December along with other content to close the year with a bang.

You will need item level 1302 or higher to take on him. Whoever is up to the task will get many weekly rewards.
HORDE RAID: VYKAS (HELL)
Hell difficulty is the hardest version of the horde raids. It is for all of you who want to prove that you are among the best in Arkesia and gain prestige. Instead of getting the normal rewards like gear, materials, and everything else you would get in a normal horde raid, the rewards on this difficulty are for bragging about your victory with titles, achievements, fortress structures, and other prizes. The scale of balance is applied and the Book of Coordination is used, so the equipment of all players is normalized according to the level of the legion commander you are facing. To participate in the Inferno difficulty of the Vykas Horde raid, you will need to be at item level 1460.
TRIAL GUARDIAN: ACHATES
The Trial of Achates Guardian Strike is a Horde Raid Inferno difficulty experience that you can only participate in after preparing your build in the Coordination Book.
