Lost Ark T1 Mat: Best Islands For Farming

Endgame content in video games is sometimes not only one of the most interesting and fun pieces of content but also the most challenging one as well. Lost Ark is no exception in this regard since you’ll be needing the best gear you can get your hands in order to face the challenges that await you in Lost Ark’s endgame.

To upgrade your gear, you’ll need materials of the highest tiers, and in today’s guide, we’ll be covering all you need to know on how to acquire tier 1 materials or T1 mat in Lost Ark.

Additionally, in your travels, there will be a lot of bosses and enemies you’ll be facing. Having a proper build for those situations is highly recommended, so consider reading our guides on Glaivier Build, Striker Build, Destroyer Build, and Lost Ark Weapons Tier list to prepare you for your adventures.

Furthermore, if you want to roleplay as a badass gunslinger, you can make builds like GunlancerDeadeye, and Gunslinger Build in Lost Ark for that too.

The materials required to make these builds aren’t free, but you can easily earn those materials through rewards gained from completing Una’s TasksTreasure Maps, doing challenge runs in the Training Room, or Farming Gold in Lost Ark.

What is T1 Mat in Lost Ark

Before discussing anything else, let’s address what actually is T1 mat? T1 mat is an abbreviation of Tier 1 materials used by the Lost Ark community. T1 mats are endgame materials used to upgrade your gear to a much higher level in order to take down some of the tougher foes you’ll face in the endgame.

You can get a T1 mat from a lot of islands in Lost Ark. To check which material is from which tier, see the item descriptions of the materials. Some of the most common Tier 1 items in Lost Ark are Stone Fragments and Harmony.

Islands where quests rewards will get you high amounts of T1 mat are listed below. Before reading further, consider reading our guide on the best ways to increase Charisma in Lost Ark.
