by | Last updated Jan 31, 2024

Lost Art is heading to western shores in just a few months, giving us plenty of time to brush up on the classes. This time around, we’re taking a look at the kung-fu class of the game with our Lost Ark Martial Artist overview.

The Martial Artist splits into three advanced classes. Let’s take a look at the class as a whole, as well as each option.

Lost Ark Martial Artist Overview

Martial Artists are, well, martial artists. The class is all about the martial arts theme and each advanced class is a pure brawler. However, it’s also not as simple as it may seem. In addition to using their fists, Martial Artists also have access to different weapons and a range of spells, making them versatile and deadly! 

Lost Ark Scrapper Overview

The Scrapper is the ‘heavy’ version of Martial Artists. The class features giant gloves as weapons and is focused around big, slow hits and sacrificing movement for massive damage. 

It also features a unique gameplay element – Chi. Skills effectively cost Chi and to maximize your output, you need to use a good balance of skills to keep your Chi even. Despite this, it’s actually a great beginner class that’s good at both PvE and PvP. 

Lost Ark Soulfist Overview

Soulfist is best described as a ‘jack of all trades’ – a class which can do a bit of everything, but isn’t quite the best at anything. It has a good mix of melee and ranged spells and you’ll often be combining both in your attacks. 

The class can be fairly complicated and has a fairly high skill cap due to its mixture of abilities. It’s not for everyone but definitely appeals to people who want to be able to do a bit of everything. 

Lost Ark Wardancer & Striker Overview

Wardancer (and its male counterpart, Striker) is an agile melee class that utilizes armored gloves as weapons. They’re one of the fastest classes in the game, both in terms of attack speed, as well as mobility. 

As a Wardancer, you’ll enjoy close-ranged and fast-paced gameplay, but it does come at risk. You’ll be very squishy, so you need to stay on top of your reaction time and manage your cooldowns. It’s a great class for anyone who enjoys ducking and diving in and out, and being agile while getting damage in.

Now that our Lost Ark Martial Artist Overview has covered the basics of the class, it’s time to pick your favorite advanced option and get ready to punch out the competition in Lost Ark!
