Looking for a Lost Ark servers list? With the release of the Korean ARPG-style MMO you might be wondering how many servers are available for each region. Some are going to be busier than others, so it’s certainly worth spending a few minutes deciding where to make your home.
It makes sense to coordinate with your friends before starting out in Arkesia. That’s not to say you can’t party up for certain group activities if you’re on different servers in the same region, but MMO staples like guilds and world bosses are locked to individual worlds. There’s no real difference when it comes to choosing the server you’ll play on—Lost Ark doesn’t have dedicated PvE or PvP dedicated servers like WoW Classic, for example—but with character creation restrictions being turned on and off to help ease server queues, it’s worthwhile checking out this guide before getting started.
Amazon Games recently added eight new servers in a new region, Europe West, in an attempt to “reduce, not eliminate, queue times for Europe Central”. Given that Lost Ark doesn’t allow players to transfer characters and progress between servers, it remains to be seen how effective that will be.
That said, here are all the Lost Ark servers, their reset times, and how to check if they’re down. Daily and weekly server resets happen at 1 am server time (or 2 am, depending on Daylight Savings), though the developers have stated that this might change, depending how it works out. To help meet the demand, new servers have been added to various regions since launch. Additionally, more servers are coming in Europe, though in a separate region rather than the existing Central Europe region. Previously, some servers were essentially locked down so new players couldn’t create characters on the busiest realms, and though that restriction has since been experimentally lifted, it could well return.
Here’s the updated server list:
North America: East
North America: West
South America If you’re having trouble connecting to Lost Ark, it could be down to busy servers or even maintenance. Luckily, you can check the server status on the official site, so you won’t have to waste time wondering if your connection is the problem.

Sarah’s earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend’s house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she’s quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
