Lost Ark Weapons Tier List [May. 2022]

Picking the right class is a core step towards Lost Ark triumph, which is exactly why we curated a complete Lost Ark classes tier list for you. Similarly, a Lost Ark weapons tier list isn’t insignificant either, especially when you know that weapons go hand in hand with the classes. There are 13 distinct Lost Ark weapon categories, each specialized to sync with a different character class. Nevertheless, weapons of each category can be accessed in multiple ways: by Crafting, found as bonuses from special quests, as drops of Lost Ark enemies, or randomly in Dungeons and raids. 

What helped us rank these weapons into multiple tiers were their varying characteristics and attacking strength. Some are fit enough to be employed in confined dungeons, while others manifest power better in a field or when used at range. In fact, some can even manifest magical abilities! 

However, what we focused more on were each Weapon’s Rarity and Grade. Higher rarity weapons are usually stronger in general and have elevated attack potential on board. The legendary rarity tier is the best, followed by Epic, Rare, Uncommon, and finally Common. 

But the criteria aren’t always such. We have placed higher rarity weapons at the bottom ranks and lower rarity ones in our top tier depending on whether any weapon manifests a broader potential in-game. Let’s dive deep into our Lost Ark weapons Tier List and see for yourself!

Lost Ark Weapons Tier List Explained

Though we have given you a sneak peek of how the Lost Ark weapons Tier List goes on, you need to understand a bit more. There are a couple of dozen weapons of unique stats in Lost Ark. Each of them comes in thirteen different forms to serve all the diverse classes of the game. 

Meaning a weapon that you’d be finding in the form of a Gunlance will usually also exist as a Greatsword or any other from the 13 different weapon types. With that said, the 13 Lost Ark weapon categories and their respective classes are: 

Greatswords are gigantic sharp blades employed to destroy foes in a melee encounter. Though the huge size gives users some space to duel at a safer distance, it also results in the Greatsword being a little slower than usual melee weapons. Nevertheless, it is one heck of a destructive weapon, especially when wielded by a skilled Berserker class player. 

  • Harp for the Bard Class 

As to facilitate the Bard class’s specialty, their weapon Harp performs magical melodies that not only heal allies but can also destroy Lost Ark’s monster bosses in seconds. Nevertheless, the player needs to be a proficient Bard to pull up the real destructive properties of the Harp weapon.  

  • Gunlance for the Gunlancer Class

The Gunlance puts forth a splendid combination of firearm and melee weapon. It not just pierces enemies but completely eradicates them with the follow-up shelling. Gunlance options are often coupled with a robust tower shield, strengthening the player’s defenses. This weapon best serves a Gunlancer

  • One-hand Swords for the Paladin Class

Yet another melee-grade weapon that will offer incredible speed without sacrificing the damage rendering potency. Paladins will especially love how the weapon can swiftly cut past the monster bosses of Lost Ark. 

The Deathblade Assassin class can avail Dual Blades. The weapon is basically a pair of small swords dedicatedly crafted to aid a severely speedy attack moveset. This pair is also coupled with a potent longsword, enabling players to relish an excellent triple sword-wielding attack style. The longsword and dual blade together can help render lethal damage, stun or finish off enemies. 

  • Light Gauntlets for the Wardancer and Striker Class

Light Gauntlets make a great add-on to a Wardancer and Striker’s hitting power, allowing them to give off crushing blows and lightning-fast strikes. These melee weapons can be worn on fists by martial artists. 

  • Guns for the Deadeye and Gunslinger Class

Guns are one of the most versatile weapons in Lost Ark, which offer users a dynamic playstyle. It enables switching between three distinct weaponry stances: Rifles, Shotguns, and Handguns. This consequently allows the Deadeye and Gunslinger Classes to pour considerable damage to foes at immediate, medium, distant ranges. 

Launchers in Lost Ark serve multiple destructive purposes. The high-tech mechanical item can launch massive ordnance from a safe distance and make explosive attacks at close range via the flamethrower.  

Used as a tonfa, Shadowblades are sharp, scythe-like blade pairs that help the agile Shadowhunters manifest their frenzied technique of slashing the foes. 

  • Staves for the Sorceress Class 

Wielded to channel in as much elemental power as possible, the Staff is a Sorceress’s right hand. 

The magical weapon not only calls forth destructive powers but is also used to summon magical allies to induce an even better attack and defensive stance. 

  • Bows for Sharpshooters 

Being a necessary part of a Sharpshooter’s arsenal, Bows deliver instantaneous death from a range. Using bows, wielders can send attacks imbued with elemental damage, rendering effects or effects that create a smokescreen causing solid hindrance to the enemy’s advancement.

  • Foci for the Soulfist Class 

Soulfists can wield this weapon to direct their Adamance energy and induce more destruction to their in-built potential. With that said, a Focus will help reinforce the user’s attacks and also give off decent energy beams and projectiles. 

  • Heavy Gauntlets for the Scrapper Class

Unlike their lighter version, the Heavy Gauntlets are far massive in size, allowing especially the Scrappers to conduct large, brutal damage attacks. If in the right hands, this weapon can cause absolute havoc in the opposition’s ranks, followed by mass destruction.
