Lost Ark Russia has finally launched its Open Beta Open Beta last October 27, 2019 15:00 MSK. I will guide you step by step on how to play it.
1. How/Where can I play Lost Ark?
There are currently two servers right now, Lost Ark Korean Server and Lost Ark Russia Server. I will only cover on how to play in the Russian server since it is less strict there. There are a lot of guides on the internet on how to play in Korea.
3. How about Lost ark NA/SEA/Global etc.?
No news yet for NA/SEA/Global.
4. Why should I play Lost Ark?
It is a promising game and getting access to it via other country is worth the trouble to test until it comes out on NA/SEA/Global.
5. Is Lost Ark Russia region locked?
Yes, that is why we need to use a VPN. Articles online suggest that it is not strict in Russia compared to Korea when it comes to other people playing from different regions. That is why I might personally play in the Russian server.

STEP #1 Get a Mail.ru account.

Step 2 Get a VPN
I’m currently using NordVPN, I used Georgia IP to connect to Lost Ark Russia.
Get NordVPN here 🡺 NordVPN
Alternately, you can use Exitlag as well. They offer a free trial but NordVpn is cheaper when you pay for a year of subscription.
Get Exitlag here 🡺 Exitlag
Use promo code “kiratv” or “gingin” if you are planning to purchase it for a Discount for Exitlag.
Registering and Downloading NordVPN or Exitlag is straight forward, so I won’t go into details about it.
For NordVPN just login with your username and password. Choose Georgia or other CIIS region then connect.
For Exitlag check the pictures below.
