  1. This may be a little late but I was wondering how much specialization do you need with scouter and how do the various amounts of specialization translate into a faster transformation? A friend of mine was asking how much specialization does he need with scouter to transform with just 2 abilities (considering he already has the wealth runes). How much specialization would you need to transform with 3 abilities? If you cannot transform with just 2 or 3 abilities, how many would you need? Thank You!

    1. Hi,
      Don’t overthink, just get only the amount you can get (considering the needed amount of critical chance).

      Also, it all depends on the gameplay, equipment, and chosen build.

      The only one that can tell the right amount is the player himself because each one will see the right amount differently.

      Overall, most Lost Ark classes benefit from specialization ascendingly, their skills get more power up. So, sometimes the right amount is as much as possible.

      So hover the mouse over the specialization and check if it’s worth more amount or not.

  2. Ah, thank you so much for the details explanation, um…. so if only for a farming, non-serious boss fight then I guess Adrenaina is a good choice when not reaching 1000 crits, I also see people using Adrenaina with Ambush Master for the paladin, not sure if because cheaper or because after the patch holy knight those skill change to back attack XD

    1. It depends on the player’s gameplay and what class and gear effect he/she chooses. Some may like the attack stack percentage or some classes such as the Blade class engraving that have stacks can stack all effects together including the stack gear effect.

      For me, I like keeping peace of mind and getting to the fun part fast by using the All Of One Build (no meta) which is an easy build (no annoying stack or side effect), lowers in cost, is fast to master, is easy to get MVP, and can be used for PVP.

      Some P2W whales use something like 3 or 4 engraving meta build sets in only one class for every content or maybe for every boss, which is ridiculously costly not to mention every “Alts” and game update that wipes progression too quickly.

  3. Very nice guide again, I’m thinking to make 1 alt for easy farming, just one question about Sharp blunt and Adrenaline, you said ” if enough crit ” so how many crits is enough to be effective to use sharp blunt, and Adrenaline? can’t get my head around these two choices lol

    Thank you

    1. Enough Crit differs from class to class and depends on the type of build you choose, as some classes and builds whose skills depend on one big hit that needs more critical stats. Such as the Destroyer class that may use a one-hit charge skill build where it must be Crit otherwise he will lose his DPS.

      While some classes such as Paladin have skills that hit 8 consecutive hits, critical hits will occur among them for sure, so Paladin may need fewer Critical stats than the Destroyer.

      1000 to 1500 Crit is enough for some classes others may need more than 1500.

      Using Adrenaline will reduce the required Crit stats but you must be minting the max stack by not stopping doing DPS. However, it will not be fun and sometimes be hard or annoying if the boss moves or hides a lot.
