Lost Ark's September Update “Rage with the Machinist” will arrive bringing the Machinist Class, a new Legion Raid, and more. The game will enter maintenance on September 28, 2022, 12:00 AM PT. Expected downtime is 4 hours, and for regions with server merges, it can be up to 16 hours.

Rage with the Machinist brings the new Machinist class, ready to blast, burn, and neutralize any threat with the highest-tech machine guns, laser weapons, and drones found in Arthetine. It will also bring a new Legion Raid in the form of Mayhem Demon Legion Commander Kakul-Saydon along with his Midnight Circus.

New Advanced Class: Machinist

Apart from the machine guns and laser weapons, the Machinist is also armed with a Drone capable of remote, precise, and unique attacks. When these still aren't enough, the Machinist can activate their identity skill Hypersync to suit up in cutting-edge technology. The high-tech Hypersync suit has energy cores that can be charged up by landing attacks. These energy cores will be expended by abilities once Hypersync is activated.

Machinist is the fifth Gunner Advanced Class, after Deadeye, Gunslinger, Artillerist, and Sharpshooter.

Kakul-Saydon Legion Raid

“Kakul-Saydon enters the fray as the third Legion Raid. In this raid, you’ll face the insanity of the Midnight Circus as you battle members of the Mayhem Legion and Legion Commander Kakul-Saydon. No revives are available mid-battle, so be ready to fight for your life. Differing from Valtan & Vykas, Kakul-Saydon is a four-player Legion raid. This Legion Raid has 3 gates, and is complete with a swathe of new unique characteristics, abilities, and mechanics.”


Players will have to be Item Level 1475 to attempt the raid's Normal difficulty. An easier version called Midnight Circus: Rehearsal is available for players at Item Level 1385 so they can practice the complicated raid mechanics.

  • Rehearsal and Normal Modes share a weekly lockout per character. A character that clears Rehearsal Mode first will not be able to do Normal Mode that week.
  • Once a player has completed Normal Mode Kakul-Saydon in a given week they can no longer clear Rehearsal Mode that week on any character.
  • Doing Normal Mode first will grant the rewards that would have been obtained in Rehearsal Mode, in addition to all of the Normal Mode rewards.

A new special training feature can be accessed by speaking to Beatrice in Trixion. This special training has the same minigames in the Kakul-Saydon Legion Raid for players to practice.


There are two new items for reward exchange will be introduced. Mayhem Marks are used at the Legion Raid Exchange NPC for various rewards like card packs, accessories, and more. Like other exchange rewards, some of these will have a weekly limit while other will have a roster limit. The second currency, Mayhem Trumpets, are used to upgrade the bonuses provided by Legion Raid gear sets. The set effects granted when 2/4/6 pieces of the same set are equipped can be improved by using Mayhem Trumpets at a new Set Gear Management NPC available in all major cities. A new Guide Quest will also be added that outlines this new system.

New Progression Events

Free Punika Powerpass

Players will receive a Punika Powerpass after completing Punika's quest “Berver's Friend”. To access this quest, players must first complete all Adventure Quests (marked by purple exclamation marks) on Punika to collect stamps and become a citizen. Once the final quest in this chain, “Honorary Punikan” has been completed, you can talk to Nia in Nia village to start “Berver's Friend.” If you've already finished the quest before the update, you'll get the Powerpass when the event starts! This Event Powerpass will be delivered via in-game mail.

The Punika Powerpass will function like the North Vern Powerpasses available to players in the launch version of Lost Ark— once you’ve completed the storyline through that continent, you can use it to bring an alternate character to that point in the game. With the Punika Powerpass, you'll receive Item Level 1302 gear. This is an event Powerpass, and will expire on October 26.

Special Event Missions

Similar to an Express Event, you can designate a character between item Level 1302 and 1415 on your roster to participate in the Special Event Missions, where they’ll earn honing materials to quickly level up to 1415. Defeat Guardians, Abyssal Dungeons, and reach Item Level thresholds to earn impactful honing material rewards. The Special Event Missions will stay active until November 23.

We’re excited to see the new alternate characters roaming Arkesia as players experience different playstyles or quickly level up a brand new Mechanist. Both of these events are available for a limited-time— so make sure you take advantage and use them while you can!

General Updates

  • There will be server merges during this update. More details can be found here.

  • Updated the Fever-time event system to allow for new types of Fever-time events. The first new event will take place during the final week of Arktoberfest from September 30 to October 3.

You only earn one prize, claimable at the end of the event, based on the number of days you met the requirements.
