How to play Lost Ark RU

The dates for Lost Ark RU OBT have been announced.

Character Precreation: October 21, 2019 13:00 MSK

Early Access: October 24, 2019 15:00 MSK

Precreation will only be available for founder packs tier 2 and 3 purchases. Early Access (3-day head start) will be for all founder pack purchases. And finally OBT will be open for everyone to play.

The registration for Mail.RU is free. But most importantly, there will be no reverification waves as confirmed by the RU CM. All you will need is a Russia VPN to play.

Some people may not be able to skip phone number confirmation. You can use any number, but I was able to skip it using an RU VPN to register.
