In this guide for Lost Ark, I am going to be sharing with you all the details you need to know about the Cube Dungeon in the game. Lost Ark is an isometric 2.5D fantasy massively multiplayer online action role-playing game.
It is co-developed by Tripod Studio and Smilegate’s game development subsidiary Smilegate RPG. It was fully released in the South Korean region on December 4, 2019, and very recently on Steam worldwide. Let us have a deeper look at our guide now.
All You Need To Know About The Cube Dungeon In Lost Ark
Cube Dungeon Tickets
Let’s talk about the Cube Dungeon in Lost Ark, a Clear Speed Challenge Mode. The Cube is an optional end game dungeon that requires a ticket to enter. It rewards you with silver, engraving books and most importantly a ton of star materials. This helps to increase the odds on gear enchantments that have a chance to fail.
So as you get into the plus 12 or higher range of gear enchantments, you’ll want these. The ticket to enter the cube is obtained from a few sources like vendor exchanges. But most commonly it is obtained as a random drop from chaos dungeons. Cube tickets are also character bound, so you can’t just funnel them to your best character.
You can access the cube via a golden cube device. It has a similar looking icon on the minimap. In Vern Castle, this is in the top left of the area next to the tower dungeon. Also if you have three tickets you can consume all three at the same time to just triple the rewards.
Cube Dungeon Objective & Rewards
Alright now, once you have a ticket what are you getting into? I would describe the cube as a clear speed challenge. There’s floor after floor of timed clear challenges and the timer is actually quite imposing so that’s the main thing. You’ll routinely finish content with less than 25 seconds on the clock.
After you clear a floor of either trash mobs or a mini boss, you move to the passageway that just opened up to continue to the next floor. As you go through the floors your reward chest level also increases from bronze to silver to gold to platinum and ultimately diamond.
If you die while solo or your entire party wipes on a single floor, you exit the cube with no reward chest. If someone in a party dies but the party then clears the floor, those people that died will be resurrected for free.
And just for reference, it took us 18 floors to get the diamond chests after around 11 minutes total. But it depends on your score for each floor which is determined by how quickly you completed it.
Clearing The Floors
Each floor also has random effects and this could be either positive or negative. For example increased crit chance is great, but reduced movement speed or doing the floor in complete darkness is not so great.
The random effects and tight time limit keep it interesting but also make it more inclined to be done in a group, unless you’re quite familiar with the content already.
I think as long as you can clear the floors quickly enough in terms of AoE and damage, the only problem with potentially failing, is these ‘explody’ boys that quickly pop people down.
The first time I did the cube it was solo and I got insta-popped by these guys and failed. And during this run they took down half our team pretty quickly.
Once you are within proximity to these guys, they quickly explode in a large area and deal tons of damage. So let them get kind and near you and then dash away.
Overall, the cube is pretty fun, I would recommend getting over leveled by 100 or more gear score and then just going for a full diamond run as it will give those 25 star materials. Alright, that’s it, we’ll see you next time.
