Lost Ark’s Arkesia may finally be open to the West, but some of its most sought-after treasures, the Hidden Stories, are shrouded in mystery. In our Lost Ark travel guide, we explain how to find some of the game’s most important requirements for the Adventurer’s Tome.
Amid the spectacular Arkesia shores of Lost Ark lurk a whole plethora of secrets just waiting to be uncovered. When you’re done tearing through the hordes, you might be looking to tick all the boxes in your Adventurer’s Tome; your faithful journal that accompanies you against all odds.
