Lost Ark: Most Complete Guide To Artist In 2023

The newest artist class is going to be released in March and as this is a brand new supporter class after a year, we guess many players are interested.

Today, we are going to talk about topics players keep asking, such as should Artists use swiftness instead of specialization or what are purple builds you can choose before 1490 or are there changes in build depending on skill points. Before I move on, let's take a look at the identity Artist uses.


Artists are similar to Bard. Meter can be filled up with three. Pressing Z, Artist consumes two bubbles and gives 10% increase of DPS for 10 seconds. Pressing X, Artist consumes one bubble and creates a marble.

Players can recover 25% of HP for eating the marble. This marble can last 60 seconds and maximum 3 marbles can be created.


Now, let's talk about stats. Normally, Artist class takes swiftness as a main. Artists use the swiftness to rotate two buff skills.

Before 1415 the level you can wear relic accessories which you can get by using Lost Ark Gold. Just take many swiftness stats as possible.

Lost Ark stats

After 1415, take at least 1600 swiftness until your cooldown gems are over level 7. If you have at least 1600 swiftness with level 7 cooldown gems, two buff skills rotate and buff can be given to players infinitely.

Then some can ask," Can we use specialization?" You can, but you need to remember two things.

First, 1600 swiftness is better than 1600 specialization. Full specialization can give more powerful buff. However, it's critical that above scales can now rotate infinitely and there's really no difference failing identity. Also, skills that artists users commonly have delays. So, it's a lot more practical and efficient to use swiftness and specialization.

Second, you can decide to give extra 100 to 300 specialization depending on your gem level. When your cooldown gems on these two buff skills are level 7 or lower, 1600 swiftness is a must. You can infinitely rotate two buff skills with the given setting. On the other hand, when you have level 10 gems, you can give extra 100 to 300 stats on specialization. Your character becomes slower, but still two buff skills can rotate infinitely. If you prefer more reduced cooldown with extra attack speed, use full swiftness regardless of your gems. If you're fine with slower attack speed with level 10 gems, give extra 100 to 300 on specialization.

In KR, we just use full swiftness as players normally don't give level 10 gems on supporter classes. Also, players just think that you bought a cheaper setting for your Artists because they don't know well about it. If you just want a cheaper setting, you can consider half and half or 1400 swiftness with 700 specialization.


These are Engravings you should use as a supporter. Full Blossom, Experts, Awakening and Heavy Armor. If you want to add one more, you can use Increased Max MP or Vital Point Strike.

For the end setting, add level 1 Drops of Ether.

Skill Builds

What are the skills Artists class should use? Seven skills are fixed. Brush: Ink Splash, Brush: Ink Hop, Brush: Ink Launcher, Ink: Drawing the Sun, Ink: Sea Conch, Ink: Kol Pond and Ink: Phantasm Gate.

For last one, you can choose between Brush: Ink Strike and Ink: Silk Road. These two skills have "Ink Mark" tripod, which gives extra damage on the foe.

Ink strike has low cooldown with more sagger. And Silk Road can give extra attack speed to party members. However, Silk Road can be canceled when you get hit by the foe, so choose it well.

In my opinion, use Ink Strike until you get used to it. Furthermore, don't use Ink: Dream Butterflies instead. It's a PVP skill. If you don't have enough skill points, use the build below. It's the same build with lower skill points.

Artists is a class focused on protecting party members (shield, purification,heal). Benefit of this class instead of other classes is that you can immediately fill your identity bar quicker. If you want a cute looking supporter class, Artist is the one.
