Lost Ark is one of the best free multiplayer games with a top-down perspective. It embarks you on a vast and incredible adventure in their vibrant world. One of the more important aspects of the game is the Lost Ark Chaos Dungeon end-game activity.
After you reach level 50, it’s when the fun begins. You can now go and discover the location of the Chaos Dungeon and join tons of players completing Chaos Dungeons. It’s a great opportunity to obtain materials and upgrade your skills.
Here you’ll be using your Awakening skill more than any other – You need the stat boost it offers – so make sure you map your main skills on your keyboard.
Now, even though it seems that it’s not a big deal, Lost Ark Chaos Dungeons have a system. You need to understand how it works if you want to discover all that the activity offers. For example, the rest bonus, rewards, the catch-up mechanic, daily caps, etc.
Our Chaos Dungeon guide explores all you need to know to learn how to unlock, clear, and take advantage of this end-game activity. Keep reading to discover the benefits of unlocked Chaos Dungeons.
Chaos Dungeons are part of the endgame activities you can do in Lost Ark once you reach level 50. This is a multiple-floor space with monsters that you need to defeat. You can enter a Chaos Dungeon alone or with up to four players.
For your first Chaos Dungeon – and all of the rest – you are tasked with slaying all the enemies to fill a progress gauge within a five-minute interval. Once you do that, a portal opens and you can go to the next Chaos Dungeon run. If you can’t make it on time, you’re out of the event.
Have in mind that you can only run Chaos Dungeons twice a day – this is your daily cap – and in case you miss the Chaos Dungeon clear activity, you can opt for the catch-up mechanic. This feature lets you get twice as much loot obtained in dungeons when you miss a day.
Lost Ark’s Chaos Dungeons are one of the best accessible and rewarding ways for players to get upgrade materials to upgrade the item level from weapons, armor, gems, and more. You can also earn engravings, important jewelry, and gems and get the Dimensional Cube ticket that allows you to enter this endgame activity.
Both casual players and hardcore players will enjoy this and other endgame activities once they reach level 50.
When playing Lost Ark Chaos Dungeon, Aura of Resonance determines how many events you can do a day.
You have a top of 100 Aura of Resonance (AOR) to spend, and 50 Aura of Resonance are required for each time you participate in a dungeon.
If you don’t use the AOR during the day, the unused Aura doesn’t disappear. Instead, a rest bonus appears. It gives you 20 points of resting bonus for each day you don’t play this end-game activity.
Now, when you do, you’ll get twice the loot because you’ll spend both the Aura of Resonance and Rest Bonus.
It’s crucial to know where you can find the Chaos Dungeon location. The first thing to know is that you shouldn’t confuse them with Abyss Dungeons. Now that it’s clear, this is what you need to do to reach the Chaos Dungeon Statue.
• Go to any major city and find the Dungeon icon on your map. Visit the symbol once you find it.
• Click on the statue to show the Chaos Dungeon window where you can select the tier level you want to play. We will explain the difference between them later.
• In case you want to play with a party, select “matchmaking” to play with other players – like you are Guardian Raids – if you want to find a party, select “find a party.” To play alone, select “Enter.”

Chaos Dungeons in Lost Ark are unlocked when you reach level 50. You also need to complete the quest “Ealyn’s Request” in North Vern. This main story quest chain opens up when you reach the level 50 cap. Before that, you won’t be able to start it.
Once you have all the requirements, you can go to the Dungeon symbol in a major city to queue for this event. It’s also important to remember that Dungeons have a certain item level requirement. If you don’t match it, you can’t access the daily activity and run the dungeon.
Make sure you complete quests like “Shushire'' if you want to get better gear with enough item levels before your first two Chaos Dungeon encounters.
You may not know the best ways to complete the zones in your first Chaos Dungeon clears, but the truth is they are more than simple. You will have to use uncommon methods and every ability at your disposal to kill monsters in each zone. Make sure you know your cooldowns, top skills, and movements if you want to survive mobs.
The Chaos Dungeons host a large number of – generally – weak enemies and some mini-bosses you have to defeat. This is why crowd control skills will be useful in the arena.
As you Tier up until Tier 3 or 4, you should expect harder monsters.
Now, the best thing you can do to clear and escape the Chaos Dungeon is to follow this pattern according to zones:
Zone 1: Destroy as many enemies as you can until they stop spawning. When you finish, this unlocks a portal that you can pass through.
Zone 2: Destroy a mini-boss – sometimes more than one – and kill the world boss to open another portal.
Zone 3: Break the Rift Core Crystals. This will make enemies spawn so you can fight them. Repeat occasionally until you clear the event.
When a portal opens, if it’s a gold portal instead of blue, you’ll reach a bonus zone where a phantasmal enemy will spawn. Hurt it or kill it; it will drop different currencies that you can exchange for items when you’re back in town.
Defeat minibosses and break Rift Cores to drop Fighting Spirit Ether. Grab it to increase stats like attack speed, movement speed, or cooldowns.
The blue orbs near the area give you a temporary movement speed buff that you can use.
AOE attacks are the best for crowd control, especially when you don’t have multiple characters helping you out.
