Battles and cases in MMOs can be hectic affairs at the best of times, with communication a key factor in eliminating some of the trickier, more complex bosses. That’s why many of these games have implemented the Ping function to allow players to announce their location to the rest of their party. Lost Ark has also made this possible for their players, allowing them to send that information via group chat instead of typing it out or trying to describe it in voice chat.
There are three options for communicating your location to your party in Lost Ark, each with slightly different purposes. These instructions will cover the default controls for the game, so if you’ve changed them you’ll need to refer to them again.
Three Ways to Ping in Lost Ark
Each of these methods has a slightly different purpose, so it would be helpful to know them all.
- If you want your team to get to a specific point that you can see on your screen, you can hold CONTROL and then click Left mouse button where you want to signal people to go. This is the fastest way to ping your allies and will help collect them on your exact location.
- You can also ping from the minimap by pressing Navigation and click the map that pops up. This is useful for signaling your group to gather somewhere near you but out of your sight.
- Finally, you can send a marker for a group chat to a more distant location by opening the main map. Click USA to open the map and then hold down Change and click Right mouse button to mark a location too far away to show on the minimap. This is perfect for letting the whole team know where to gather for the next mission.
