Is the Astray worth it in Lost Ark?

If you have the time to spend collecting and completing all the materials and crafting requirements for the Astray, you should get it. The Astray offers the fastest sailing speed of any ship in the game, making it great for quickly jumping between islands and other locations in the endgame.

The Astray is what many Lost Ark players consider the holy-grail ship in Lost Ark due to its fast sailing speed and even resistance to all types of water conditions. However, it is also the second least-durable ship next to the Eurus and is undoubtedly the most difficult ship to get in Lost Ark.

At Level 10, the Astray features a game-best base sailing speed of 26.6 knots and a fast sailing speed of 15.5 knots that lasts for 7 seconds. It sports a Durability of 5530 and 18 points of resistance to Kelp Beds, Sandstorm Seas, Siren Seas, Cold Snap Seas, Tempest Seas, and Dead Waters.

What is the best ship in Lost Ark?

The Astray is what many players consider the best ship in Lost Ark due to its fast sailing speed which significantly reduces travel time in the endgame.

However, the Astray is only marginally faster than the first ship you get in the game in the Estoque all while having significantly lower Durability and Resistance to sea conditions.

With that said, the Estoque is arguably the best ship in the game with its superior Durability (6560), decent Base Sailing Speed (23.8), and unmatched Resistance to all types of sea conditions (30) in Lost Ark.


The Astray Operation Manual is one of five required materials to build the Astray in Lost Ark. Fortunately, getting the Astray Operation Manual is fairly straightforward, as it only requires you to complete the mission from the Pirate Star: Astray item. You can buy the Pirate Star: Astray from Mariner Rosa for 300,000 Pirate Coins.
