Lost Ark Best Engravings for Each Class PVE & PVP Build (3)

Lost Ark Best Engravings for Every Class PVE & PVP Build

With suitable engravings on ability stones, necklaces, earrings and rings, we strengthen our character in Lost Ark. There are two unique class engraves for each class, as well as numerous combat engraves available to all classes. Engravings are available on all trinkets, the skill stone, and two Engraving Effects windows.

There are two different class engravings to choose from for each class. In most cases, however, it makes little sense to use both class engravings. These engravings differ so much that the way you play is influenced by this choice. So here we sort out the best engravings for each build in Lost Ark, also share you with the tier list of the best engravings for almost all classes.

Lost Ark Best Engravings For Sorceress Build

With the sorceress, we decide on Reflux. In addition to the class engraving, we distribute points into additional engravings that are available to all classes. We first bring our class engraving Reflux to level 1-2. After that we invest 15 points in Grudge and Hit Master, so we bring them to level 3. If we get more engraving points, we invest them in more engravings. The engraving points are distributed in the following order:

  • Reflux - This engraving locks our Mystical Resonance identity. To compensate, the damage of all abilities is permanently increased and the cooldown is reduced at the same time.

  • Grudge - We take more damage from bosses, but we also deal more damage.

  • Hit Master - This engraving grants 16% more damage to any ability that does not deal directional damage (front or back attack).

  • Keen Blunt Weapon - Crit damage is increased by 10-50%, but all attacks deal less damage with some 20% chance.

  • Cursed Doll - Attack power is increased while healing is reduced. However, natural regeneration is excluded from this.

  • Spirit Absorption - Increases attack and movement speed by 3-15%.

Lost Ark Best Engravings For Bard Build

For bards, these are Catana of Valor and Desperate Salvation. Those who choose Catana of Valor play the bard as a DPS class. With Desperate Salvation, you play the bard as a support class. In addition to the class engraving, we distribute points into additional engravings that are available to all classes. Theengravingpoints are distributed in the following order:

  • Desperate Salvation - After completing Ara of Healing (healing from our identity ability), all players are healed for 24% of their maximum health, which significantly improves the healing from the bard.

  • Expert - Party-wide shield and health regeneration effects are greatly increased, especially when the target is below 50% health.

  • Awakening - Reduces the cooldown of the Awaken ability by 10-50%, allowing us to use it more often.

  • Spirit Absorption - Increases attack and movement speed by 3-15%.

  • Heavy Armor - Hugely increases defense so we take significantly less damage.

  • Drops of Ether - When we deal damage, we have a chance to activate an aura that increases movement speed, crit probability, attack power, defense, and resistances.

Lost Ark Best Engravings For Berserker Build

For the berserker, we opt for the technique of the berserker. In addition to the class engraving, we distribute points into additional engravings that are available to all classes. We're going to first level up our Berserker's Technique class engraving. We don't need more for this engraving. After that, we bring the two engravings Grudge and Cursed Doll to level 3. If we get more engraving points later we invest them in Raid Captain, Keen Blunt Weapon, Awakening and Spirit Absorption. Theengravingpoints are distributed in the following order:

Berserker's Technique - With this engraving, we increase the crit probability in berserk mode. In addition, the fatigue of Berserk Mode is removed. This means that upon exiting berserk mode, we immediately spawn anger again.

  • Awakening - Reduces the cooldown of the Awaken ability by 10-50%, allowing us to use it more often.

  • Expert - Expert increases the shield strength and health regeneration of all paladin abilities.

  • Heavy Armor - Hugely increases defense so we take significantly less damage.
