So you want to know about Lost Ark servers? They say the most stressful decision in any MMO game is deciding which character class to pick first, but really it’s choosing which server to jump into. This is especially important when you’re planning to play a game with friends – you’ll want to make sure you’re all playing on the same server.
So while you may already know which Lost Ark class you want to try out first, you’ll need to nail your server choice. If you are playing with friends, it might be worth sharing the server list with them so you can have a conversation about it. Note that North America is split into two region groupings, and the east coast possesses more server options than the west coast. Europe has the largest selection of servers, and there are a couple of South American server options as well.
We’ve put together this guide so you can see what the current server list is, how to check your server’s status, as well as other commonly asked questions such as whether you can change a character’s server and which content can be played across servers. Enjoy!

Can you Transfer Characters between servers in Lost Ark?
At the time of writing, you can’t move characters from one server to another in Lost Ark. While each character you create on your account can be tied to its own choice of server, once that choice has been made it cannot be undone.
Lost Ark cross server content
As a general rule of thumb, you can’t play with friends or other players on different servers to you. That being said, the game does have some cross-server functionality, provided the other server is in the same region as the one your character is located on.
According to the official Lost Ark forums, you can do the following with players on other servers:
- The Cube
- Platinum Fields
- Buy/Sell via Auction House
- Boss Rush
- Ranked PvP Arena
There are a bunch of resources that are also tied to an account, and not to a specific character or server. Lost Ark gold is one of them, and Lost Ark Power Pass tokens are also account specific. The other cross-server resources include:
- Bond Stones
- Rift Shards
- Pirate Coins
- Special Voyage Tokens
- Estate Tokens
Meanwhile general open world play, islands, strongholds and things like Life Skills are locked to the server your character is on. Your friends list is also server specific, but there is something called ‘Groupfinder’ you can use to set up pre-made parties so you can do instanced raids and dungeons with friends on other servers.
