Who is Blackfang?
Blackfang is the Black Fox ship’s captain and a well-known pirate whom you will encounter in a main story quest in Lost Ark.
Blackfang is also one of many NPCs you can build a Rapport with in Lost Ark, but before you can start building rapport with her, you must complete the Catch the Rats quest and meet a minimum Virtue Stat first. Blackfang will give you the Catch the Rats quest when you talk to her in Blackfang’s Den.
Blackfang is also known for selling valuable items such as the Taunt and Roar Emote, the 8th Giant’s Heart, and Sail Glyph: Honor for Gienah’s Coin at Blackfang’s Den in Freedom Isle.
Where is Blackfang in Lost Ark
You can find Blackfang in Blackfang’s Den in Freedom Isle in Lost Ark. She is a merchant NPC and a Rapport NPC you can interact with in-game.
You can find Freedom Isle in the western part of the Sea of Gienah toward the south of the tempest seas. Head to Blackfang’s Den to find Blackfang, where you can talk to her to purchase items in exchange for Gienah’s Tokens or build a Rapport with her.
How much charisma is needed to talk to Blackfang?
You need at least 260 Charisma to talk to Blackfang, but that’s not the only requirement – you also need 180 Wisdom, 260 Courage, and 220 Kindness Virtues to start a Rapport with Blackfang.

Do I need to be trusted with Blackfang to get Astray?
Yes. You must have Trusted-level Rapport with Blackfang to get Astray, as the Pirate Star: Astray quest requires 77700 Rapport XP to complete.
You can get the Pirate Star: Astray quest by purchasing the Pirate Star: Astray item from Mariner Rosa for 300,000 Pirate Coins. Right-click on the item to start the quest, but you must have Blackfang at Trusted Rapport Stage to complete the quest first.
You can find Blackfang in Blackfang’s Den in Freedom Isle in Lost Ark. If you’re unsure where Freedom Isle is, just look toward the western part of the Sea of Gienah and toward the south of the tempest seas.
Blackfang is quite the famous pirate in Lost Ark, and many players know her to be the biggest obstacle in getting one of the most sought-after ships in the game in Astray. Find her in Freedom Isle and start your long Rapport grind with her to get Astray.
