Lost Ark Japan is up! I will guide you step by step on how to play Lost Ark in Japan Servers.
====WHAT YOU NEED====
- Pmang account
- VPN (because it is region locked)
- English Patch (if you do not understand Japanese)
- PC and Internet ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
====Step 1: Get a VPN====
You need a VPN to access their main website, download the game, and play the game. I will not go into details on how to use your VPN since it is just straight forward and different people use different VPNs. I would suggest Exitlag since this is what they usually use for Lost Ark Japan or Russia.
Get Exitlag here 🡺 Exitlag
====Step 2: Make a Pmang account and download the game====
Go to https://lostark.pmang.jp/ and click that small white button
(If the website does not load, your VPN does not work in Lost Ark Japan)
Click the orange button to make an account or you can login with your Google/Facebook account. I personally did the orange button way.
Fill up the the necessary details and submit.
You will arrive to this window and just click Send. Edit if you want to edit something else.
They will send you an email to verify your email and account creation.
You will be redirected from your email to here. Click the button.
You will be redirected to their main page, click Game Start
Login with your email and password.
Ok, this is the tricky captcha part. You will need to enter the captcha correctly, this is difficult if you do not know Japanese letters. I personally used https://translate.google.com/ to do this captcha. You can also use https://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/hiragana.htm.
If you are successful, you will see this window. If not, try the captcha again. Proceed by clicking the gray button
You will be redirected again to their main page, but this time you will see two new buttons. Click the Game start again.
Click to download the plugin/launcher. You need to run the game via their website always.
Install what you downloaded.
When you are done installing the plugin go back to https://lostark.pmang.jp/ and click game start.
You should see the launcher pop up after clicking game start. Download the game.
(Some say you can close your vpn for faster download, but I personally used a vpn)
====Step 3: Download the English Patch====
Go to this link and follow their instructions on how to download and apply the English Patch https://lostarkdatabase.com/english-patch/
(This english patch works, I just tried and tested it.)
Congratulations! You are done. Share this guide if it helped you. Thank you!
