An integral part of any MMORPG is the economy. Well, in order to be able to make purchases in the game and develop your character, you will need a special currency. There are many of them in LOST ARK, but one of the main ones is gold. In this article we will tell you about the current ways to earn it.
Ways to earn gold
At the beginning of your journey through the world of Akrasia, you will need to go through the storyline, as a reward for which you will receive some gold. Also, it will not be superfluous to perform side tasks, for most of them they also give gold.
Until the 50th combat level, you have no way of earning gold, except by completing the storyline and side missions.
Gold in quest rewards
You can get gold in exchange for the Tokens of the Ephonian Union from the merchant “Exchange of gold coins”, which is located in any major city.
He has three types of goods, which differ in value and content. In each you will receive gold in different quantities, but there is a chance to get plates or an ingot. A light gold plate yields 100 gold when used, a heavy gold plate gives 1000 gold, and a gold bar gives 10,000 gold.
Assortment of NPC “Exchange of gold coins”
As a reward for completing the daily and weekly quests of the Ephonian Confederation, you will receive points. For a daily task – 2 points (maximum 3 tasks per day), for a weekly task – 12 points (maximum 3 tasks per week).
After reaching 70 points in a week, you can collect all the Tokens of the Ephonian Union. Depending on your maximum level of equipment, the number of Signs of the Ephonian Union changes. Having taken a reward from one character, you will not be able to receive it on other characters on your account.

Islands of Adventure
Adventure islands float to the sea every day, from 11:00 to 23:00 every 2 hours. With some probability, gold may be included in the rewards.
The islands available during the day by Proceus’ compass and the rewards for them do not change. You can pick up a reward only once a day.
The amount of gold received depends on your maximum equipment level.

In yellow, you can find a chest or scent, and in red, you can find a boss. After killing any of them, you will receive gold, but only if there is the energy of Order.
