The Best Berserker Lost Ark Build

Lost Ark is out now in the west, and by far, one of the most interesting classes in the game is theBerserker. Lost Ark's Berserker may be the best class that is all about jumping into the fray, swinging menacingly, and doing big DPS. Here is a rundown with this Best Berserker Lost Ark Build and Class guide if you're a beginner to the game and want a grasp of what to anticipate.

Lost Ark Berserker Guide

This Lost Ark Berserker Guide aims to provide you with a run-down of the associated class. The gist is to get you up to speed in terms of the basics of Berserker gameplay. Including his skills, engravings, as well as other tidbits which are of good use and can help you find out if this class is right for you.

To achieve this, we have to examine the Korean and Russian builds aimed at the end-game content. To give you a better idea of what you can expect at the most important phase of the game. Furthermore, we are going to also provide you with a quick look at what you could expect within the early game. If you do intend on giving the Lost Ark's Berserker class a spin.

We at Borderpolar, have a series of Lost Ark Class Guides aimed at novices, such as PaladinGunlancer, or Sorceress guides. Bundled with some other useful guides for the game's content. If you are interested, you can check them out in our Lost Ark section.

Lost Ark Berseker Identity Skill And Class Engravings

Okay, so the most important and basic thing that you need to know about the Berserker is his Identity skill. Every class typically has 1 or 2 skills that only they can use. Hence they are called “identity skills” since they are closely related to the unique “identity” of that class. For Berserker, this is the Berserk gauge.

When said gauge is filled, the Bersekerer can… well, go Berserk. Which increases your movement and attack speeds. In this “Berserker state”, you are also granted access to additional abilities that will shred your enemies up in a fit of rage for big damage. Those abilities come in handy during end-game content and fights with some of the more dangerous bosses in the game.

To fill the identity gauge of Berserker, you simply have to hit enemies with basic attacks and skills. Some tripods and abilities even enable you to harbor more rage from hitting your targets.

The current meta in the Korean region of the game focuses on the Mayhem class engraving, which allows you to stay enraged for longer and squeeze out even more damage. This comes at the downside of a reduced HP pool. Mayhem is way more popular than the other Warrior engraving thanks to its amazing potential damage numbers. But those inexperienced with the game may find themselves unable to beat some of the harder content with the reduced health. The choice, however, is yours to make when you reach unlock engravings and reach that crossroad. While you are leveling up and through most of the story, you do not have to deal with this dilemma.

Lost Ark Berserker Best PVE and PVP Skills and Tripods

Best Berserker PVE Skills And Tripods

Berserker is certainly one of the best classes in Lost Ark when it comes to the quickly demolishing groups of monsters. That makes leveling a comfortable and laid-back process since lots of the story sections task you with dispatching trash mobs. With this in mind, you should invest almost all of the ability points powering up your best AoE skills.

Typically you want to max out your most important skills, as they require an increasing number of skills points to be devoted to them. Invest leftover into less important skills with the goal of hitting Tripod breakthroughs, as they always greatly empower your skills. Tripods are unlocked at skill levels 4, 7, and 10.

Best Lost Ark Berserker Engravings

When you've reached rank 50, you can start benefitting from engravings. These endgame gear bonuses give juicy buffs to your character. Each class has two class Engravings, which impact your playstyle in a significant way. For Berserker, they are Berserker's Technique and Mayhem. Each augments your Class Identity.

Berserker's Technique eliminates the fatigue debuff after Berserk ends. Allowing you to immediately start gathering Fury. It also grants even more movement and attack speed while in Burst Mode. And to top it all off it enchances your crit rate.

Mayhem completely removes the Berserker meter, letting you toggle Berserk on and off at will. However, this comes at a high price. While in Mayhem Berserk, your HP is capped at 25% of its maximum value. And you gain only 25% of any incoming shields from support classes.

While we definitely recommend Mayhem, as it is the meta perk. You should take into consideration that Mayhem is not very beginner-friendly. So as a new player you should consider Berserker's Technique instead.

When it comes to the best Lost Ark generic Berserker Engravings, this is what we recommend you spec into:

Master of Ambush: +25% Damage for successful back attacks. You want to be hitting bosses in the back most of the time anyway to avoid frontal attacks. Especially when using Mayhem!

Cursed Doll: Atk. Power +16%. Healing -25%, natural recovery excluded. boosts your damage in return for a recovery penalty. This one is quite obvious. You can't heal much, to begin with, while using the Mayhem engraving. Besides, if you kill the Boss quickly, you won't even need healing.

Grudge: +20% DMG to Bosses and special enemies but you also take +20% damage. This ties with Mayhem Berserker's playstyle perfectly and will give you a huge power boost. Simply be conscious that combining this with Cursed Doll will turn you into a glass cannon.

And that is everything you need to get started in Lost Ark's endgame with the Berserker! Or if PVP enviorment is where you rather be, then we got you covered too!
