Is there any way to skip the regional lock to play Lost Ark Online on the Russia server? Yes, there is! Those who want to play Lost Ark in a country other than Russia are warned, "Unfortunately, Mail.RU version of LOST ARK is unavailable in your region." In this guide, I will explain how to bypass the Region Lock. If you're wondering "Is it possible to play the Steam version of Lost Ark in my country?", click this.
Step 1 - Ok.ru or Mail.ru Account
- Go to the https://ok.ru/
If this website is blocked in your country, you can use the Opera browser. Opera has its own VPN.
- Click on the Registration button
- Create a new account.
By the way, you can also use your mail.ru or vk.com account instead of ok.ru to log into the game.
Step 2 - Download and Install the Lost Ark
- Go to the http://static.dl.mail.ru/LostArcLoader.exe and download the loader.
- Run the LostArcLoader
- After selecting where to install the game, click on the "Продолжить" button.
- The size of the game is about 32 gb. Wait for the download and installation to complete.
- After downloading the game is complete, make sure you exit the mail.ru Game Center client. You can find the client on Windows taskbar.
Step 3 - ExitLag
- Go to the ExitLag page
- Click on the "FREE 3 DAYS TRIAL" button. You can register without credit card required.
- Create an account.
- Verify the Email
- Download and install the ExitLag.
- Restart your computer.
- Launch the ExitLag.
- In the ExitLag app, type Lost Ark RU in the search box.
- Select the Lost Ark RU
- Select a game region (e.g. RU Moscow01 is default)
- Click on the APPLY ROUTES button.
- Likewise add the GameCenter My.Com, as well. (Search&Select the GameCenter My.Com in ExitLag and click APPLY ROUTES)
- After adjusting the settings, minimize the ExitLag app.
By the way, you should add ExitLag as an exception to your active firewall or antivirus software.
Step 4 - English Patch
- Go to the http://www.mediafire.com/file/spr0z5szn9jhknq/LaoTranslation.zip/file and download the LaoTranslation.zip.
- Unzip/Extract the LaoTranslation.zip file
- Run the LaoTranslation.exe application.
- Click on the Translate Game Center
- After that, launch the game center (Игровой центр)
- Go back to the LaoTranslation app
- Click on the English button.
- After applying patch...success, minimize it.
- Launch the game center
- Log into your account.
- Click on the Play button. Enjoy!
After three days, you need to buy the ExitLag ( 20% OFF WITH COUPON: GHOSTARROW ), or you can try another VPN application, but VPN apps cause lag. ExitLag is the best choice. I didn't try, but maybe NoPing Game Tunnel could work too.
How to Change the Voice Language in Lost Ark?
To change the voice language, firstly exit the game, navigate to D:\GamesMailRu\LOSTARK\EFGame\ReleasePC\WwiseAudio , then switch folder name Russian to Korean and Korean to Russian
Is it possible to play the Steam version of Lost Ark in my country?
If Lost Ark is not available for sale in your country on Steam and you really want to play it, you can probably buy and play Lost Ark using ExitLag. But I cannot guarantee that you won't be banned. You can create a new Steam account by logging in from a country where Lost Ark is available for sale via Exitlag. E.g., The United States (US New York in ExitLag).
Before creating a new Steam account in Chrome, make sure ExitLag is enabled, so switch the top left button to red. You can select the Steam and Chrome regions as US New York. Again, make sure that the button below them is also in red.
And again, it is at your own risk.
