Mystics and Mayhem will be settling in Arkesia tomorrow, with the latest Lost Ark update. The update, which is scheduled to go live tomorrow, adds the Mystic Abyss Raid event, Inferno difficulty for the Vykas Legion Raid, and Achates Trial Guardian Raid. It also begins the Harvest Festival, adds some Halloween goodies, and opens Competitive Proving Grounds Season 2.

For a late October update, this one is pretty packed with action and competition, but there are also fun events and rewards for those who want some additional options. There are Halloween pets and themed skins, the Pumpkin Carriage mount, and more. The Aldebaran Harvest Festival also opens, and you'll be able to travel to Mokomoko Night Market Island during the event period, where you can participate in the food-themed festival. The event runs until December 7th and you can complete daily quests  and earn tokens that you can combine to create gift sets that you can trade for items.

Some of the big draws in the update are sure to be the new and harder raids. The Mystic Abyss Raid event will be available for three weeks. The Guardian Mystic is casting dangerous mists from the chaos all around and it's your job to stop it. This event has three gates, and you'll be rewarded event tokens when you clear the raid. Mystic Event tokens are tradable for rewards. You can also earn several achievements. 

If you’ve taken on Vykas before, you can now challenge her again in Inferno difficulty. The new, harder Legion raid will require item level 1460 and Rewards include title, achievements, and stronghold structures. 

Finally, you can face the Achates Trial Guardian raid. Since this raid features a first region clear and fastest clear records, the raid will open on Saturday, October 29th  at 7PM UTC/ 3 PM ET, in all regions.

The Competitive Proving Grounds are also opening a new season for those who are looking to be the best of the best in PvP. There are new ranking criteria and some changes.
