Cross Server Guide in Lost Ark

How to play with friends from different servers in Lost Ark?

You can play with friends from different servers in Lost Ark through the Group Finder/Find Party Function in-game. There are multiple game options to choose from, giving you and your friends plenty of content to explore and enjoy.

You can find the Community button in the bottom right corner of your UI in Lost Ark. Click the Community button and you’ll find the Find Party option within.

Inside the Find Party window, you’ll find a list full of cross-server activities that you and your friends can partake in. These include:

  • Raids (Guardian, Challenge Guardian, Abyss, Legion)
  • Midnight Circus: Rehearsal
  • Phantom Astalgia Deja Vu
  • Dungeons (Chaos, Abyssal, Challenge Abyssal)
  • The Cube
  • Boss Rush
  • Platinum Field

You first need to create a Group and select the type of activity you want to play from the options above so your friends can search for your lobby name easily through the Find Party window.

Add a Lobby Title then configure the lobby by filling in the Objectives drop-down options.

After you’ve created the Lobby, ask your friends to search for your Lobby Title through the Find Party option in their copy of Lost Ark.

Make sure you and your party members meet the minimum item level or Raid Level if you want to play the various cross-server options through Find Party. You can check the minimum item level by cycling through the various options under the objectives section in the Create Lobby options.
