Lostark Helper, a tool to share your daily tasks, optimize honing, and more

Hello there :slight_smile:

A bit more than a week ago, I created a website called Lost Ark Helper, its primary goal is to help with a daily/weekly tasks checklist that you can share with your friends to see what you can do together.

With a bit of time, it grew to include a Mari shop optimizer, a Honing cost optimizer, a weekly gold planner, and eventually a tripod/engraving calculator (this is WIP).

All you need is to fill in your roster characters, set their ilvl, and it’ll show you the tasks based on the ilvl of each character, with the ability to enable it or not per character, ignore some tasks entirely, or even add your own custom tasks. It’s saved inside a realtime database to be easily shared accross devices and with your friends :slight_smile: resets are automated, it even tracks rest bonus for you !

The tool is entirely Open Source and it has a Discord server, all the links being on the website.


@Supamiu Does your website block towards Aisa countries? Me and other friends from singapore cannot load it all all. Many from thailand also suffer this. Could you please check? Thank you. Keep up the good work!

how do i change the gearset level to brel gear?
the iLvl doesnt match anymore with the brel upgrade.

Just use bynnark. It’s the same.


Thank you for the website.
Is there a guide on the honing cost optimizer? It is by far not well written…

What is the purpose of “Chances to succeed after 2 tries”? Why “gold per chances for 2 tries”?
I guess you compared the honing between full materials (aka 6%) vs 2 times at 3%. Right?

What is this conclusion “Trying honing twice is 35% cheaper” ? Does that mean by using no mat at all it is cheaper than using all increase honing chance mats?

How is the honing cost optimizer working ?

That’s exactly what it means :slight_smile:

I don’t think it’s even working right now. I’ve used it couple of weeks ago and it looked different (it had a table, something like Maxroll’s honing calculator)

As it is right now, you can’t even select your current ilevel, so picking the target lvl of gear doesn’t do much.

If by any chance it’s working for you (and not like for me right now), you might have another question: how can it be possible that it’s optimal to pay 33-50% more of all resources (by honing weapon more than armor), including gold, when it’s obviously possible to reach the desired ilevel by honing armor instead of weapon for a lot less?

The answer is: it depends on what you consider being optimal - most of the players consider more dmg is optimal, even at higher cost of honing.

I suggest using maxroll’s calculator, rather than this one, and if you still have questions, post them and someone will answer (can’t guarantee it’s gonna be me unless you tag me, I don’t usually post anywhere else but in general discussion and game feedack)

Thanks for the reply @Altair13 !

I don’t think it is working. But Maxroll as well, when they are calculating the gold cost while honing I don’t find the right amount and by far.

As well I don’t find the interface really good, they don’t explain at all what does what. For instance, in the materials at the top, is what I have or the cost of each of them? (Just found out that yes it is the cost to be filled).
Or what is this “value” column ? What is the currency from it?

Really the tools are not well designed…

I found a tool, which is exactly what I was looking for: oilyark. Basically it tells you if it is worth using honing materials or not and clearly indicate what you have to fill with a small explanation guide.
