Lost Ark Slayer North America

Lost Ark Slayer Class to Appear in North America and Europe in May

Smilegate and Amazon Games announced that a new class will appear in Lost Ark in May 2023: the Slayer. As part of the MMORPG’s content roadmap, players will have the opportunity to create a Slayer sometime next month. A more concrete date as to when the Slayer will appear will arrive in the future.

Like the Destroyer and Berserker, the Slayer is a two-handed DPS class in Lost Ark. This is more or less Smilegate’s answer to gender-locking both the Destroyer and Berserker, which means the Slayer will be a female-exclusive class. Players will also need to create an entirely new character to create their very own Slayer once it arrives. The Slayer is already available in the Korean version of the game.

Lost Ark has seen several major content updates appear since it’s Western release in February 2023. This has included the addition of several high tier raids, and the inclusion of the Artist and Reaper as new classes. The game has also received some overhauls concerning its gold system. This was done in an attempt to help solidify the in-game economy in both the North American and European servers, due to the high amount of gold sellers in the game itself.

Lost Ark is available on PC through the Steam storefront.
