Secret Maps can be used to reveal the approximate location of a Secret Dungeon in Lost Ark. The maps show a small area only, which means you will need to have both the Secret Map scroll and your mini-map to get a good idea about the exact location of the Secret Dungeon.
As soon as you’re in the exact spot marked in the Secret Map scroll, press the interaction button (G) to enter the dungeon. Once inside, beat the boss to get random rewards such as gear and XP.
What is the value of the Legendary Map in Lost Ark?
The rarest and most valuable maps in the game are Legendary Maps. Legendary Maps have a value of at least 6x that of the Blue Map (Rare Secret Maps) and are guaranteed to drop Porch, Starbreaths, and most importantly, Engraving Books.
Unlike Rare or Epic Maps, Legendary Map locations can sometimes show up as an upside-down image, which makes Legendary Secret Dungeons much harder to find than Rare or Epic Secret Dungeons.
Secret Maps unlock Secret Dungeons that you can complete to get Harmony, Life, or Honor Shard Pouches of varying sizes. Aside from Shards, a slew of Honing materials are also up for grabs, which makes Secret Maps an essential part of your endgame grind.
