Lost Ark Twitch drops: what they are and how to get them
Lost Ark Twitch drops are in-game rewards that you can earn by watching participating streamers via Twitch. (Or having their streams open in another tab while you should be working.) If you’ve seen players zooming around Arkesia on the top of golden electric hoverboards while accompanied by pets that look like mystical foxes, those rewards came from earlier Twitch drops given away to celebrate Lost Ark’s launch.
With this guide, you’ll be able to score sweet free loot just just like those high-flying fancypants. You’re welcome.
What Lost Ark Twitch drops are available?
The current Twitch drop promotion runs until June 15 at 12am PT/7am UTC. It gives away a chest and shard set that includes four battle item chests and 1,000 amethyst shards.
Each of the chests contains different items you’ll need in Guardian Raids, Abyss Dungeons, and other endgame activities. You get one buff battle item chest, one healing battle item chest, one utility battle item chest, and one offensive battle item chest.
As for the amethyst shards, they’re a currency normally earned via achievements like winning a PvP match or accruing 50 friends, although they’re also available as an Amazon Prime reward. They can be exchanged at a dedicated vendor in each main city hub.
The most popular item they sell is a ship skin called the Notos orca, which turns your ship into a killer whale and makes sea travel fly by. It costs 6,600 amethyst shards. There’s a sweet gold wolf mount as well, though that one will set you back 22,000 amethyst shards.
How to get Lost Ark Twitch drops
To activate Twitch drops, go to the Lost Ark website, sign into Twitch, link your Steam account, and finally click on the activate button. To get a Twitch drop you have to watch two hours of a participating stream.
As always, go to the Lost Ark category on Twitch and filter it by Drops Enabled to find them fastest. I like to scroll down and find a lesser-known streamer who could do with an extra view, but there are plenty of other tags to help you navigate.
Make sure to rack up your two hours before the promotion ends on Wednesday, June 15.
When you’ve earned a drop, you’ll get a notification in Twitch. (Notifications are up top, between whispers and Prime Gaming Loot.) That’ll guide you to your Twitch inventory page, where you need to claim the drop. After that, it should show up in-game within 24 hours. Access it from the product inventory next to your mail.
