Lost Ark has a lot of explorable islands for the players to farm for a ton of different rewards like mounts or stat potions. One such island is Monte Island which allows the players to farm for many additional rewards that will help them further in their main quest. However, to access Monte island, the players will have to find a Monte island token and complete the adventure island quest. Among the 95 island tokens, the Monte island token is the hardest to collect in Lost Ark.
How To Access The Monte Island
Monte island is not available all the time for the players to access. There are only certain spawn times when the island will be open for all players to access. This is because it is an adventure Island, and the players will have to keep an eye out on the in-game calendar to see when Monte island is available for exploration.
There is no particular time for the island’s availability. It appears randomly; therefore, it is essential always to check the events through the Procyon Compass. As soon as it is available, the players will be able to access the island and complete the adventure island quest to get the island token.
Monte Island Location
Monte island is not available at all times, and finding it is a bit of a tricky task in itself. Before you can go out in search of Monte island, we recommend that you have obtained an item level of 250. Furthermore, it is also essential to reach the combat level of 50 before you can access Monte island. Monte island itself is located to the northeast of Bern.
You will find the island in the Sea Of Heavens across the sea from Faten. The area where the island will spawn will turn into a giant whirlpool for some time. Therefore, you will be able to spot it quite easily. But first, you will have to unlock a ship in the game.
There are a lot of ships in Lost Ark available for the players to use. You will be able to craft some of these ships or get them as a reward by completing in-game tasks and activities. After unlocking the ship, you also have to unlock the ability to sail.
The ability to sail will be unlocked when you progress through the main story. You will have to complete a quest called Set Sail first, where you will learn some basics and get to use your very first Boat. The set sail quest is the final quest in East Luttera Storyline. Therefore you won’t have to go out of your way to access Monte island as it does not have special requirements.
Spawn Time Of The Island
Now it is important to know when the island will spawn in order to access it. Unfortunately, Monte island will spawn at completely random times, and there is no set schedule for the island. However, the players will be able to keep track of Monte island by accessing their Procyon Compass.
The Procyon compass will show you all the upcoming scheduled events as well as different dungeons that are available for the players to explore. You can check the availability status of Monte island as well as set the alarm for it by following the steps below.
- The first step is to click on the Procyon Compass Icon that will be located right beneath the mini-map. It is on the top left corner of the HUD. After clicking on it, you will be able to see all the events as well as the availability of Monte island.
- Next, you have to click on the Appearance Info option in the Adventure Island tab. You can access it via the Activity Tab menu.
- Lastly, you have to set the alarm for the availability of Monte island in Lost Ark so that you will know whenever it is available for exploration.
After setting the alarm, you will get a notification of the availability of Monte island 15 minutes before it spawns. You can also change the time of the alarm in the settings.
Earning The Island Token
Island tokens are one of the many collectibles in Lost Ark that the players can turn in to gain a lot of different rewards. These island tokens can be exchanged for prizes by going to The Lonely Island in Opher and speaking to an NPC.
Due to the nature of rewards that can be gained by exchanging island tokens, many players are always on the hunt for them. The island token for Monte island can be obtained by competing against other players in a treasure hunt.
However, before you can get the island token, it is important to ensure that the island is available to explore. Luckily the adventure quest for Monte island will not require you to fight against a boss or any other player. Instead, you will have to participate in a simple treasure hunt and look out for treasure chests.
As soon as Monte island is available, make your way to it, and you will be able to start the treasure hunt.
The quest will require you to search for hidden chests spread out across Monte island. Fortunately for the players, all of these chests will be marked on the mini-map for your convenience. However, there are some hidden chests as well that would require quite a bit of searching. Some of these chests might be hidden inside tree trunks.
These can be accessed by using relevant entrances in the game. The hidden chests will reward you with more points needed to win the quest. Since the quest will start after three minutes when you reach the island, you can utilize the time to get a good idea of the chest locations.
Every chest you open will reward you with points. In order to complete and win the quest, you will need to gather 5000 points. The larger chests will have more than 10 points, while the smaller and more common chests will grant you 10 points.
Another thing to note is that the players will also get some time to collect the Mokoko seeds of the island before the actual quest begins.
Tips For Adventure Quest
When you find the chests, you will be able to interact with them and open them using G. You can also use a spatula to open them by pressing the F5 button. Doing so will allow you to kick the chests and gain some bonus points.
You will want to obtain as many points as possible if you want a higher chance of getting the Monte island token. However, even with the least amount of points, you will still get a chest as a reward, along with 20 elemental tokens.
If you want to increase the chances of you getting the Monte island token and ranking better, then you can use some items to help you out in the quest. There are some items available in Lost Ark that will allow you to get a speed boost, like the Swiftness Robe. Using them will allow you to find and interact with more treasure chests.
Keep in mind that these treasure chests will rotate in a very common pattern, so you can prepare yourself and hunt in the areas where they usually pop up.
When you open the map, you will see some pink symbols. They will represent other players on the island. Most of the time, the players will pick a certain area to open the chests.
This is a more convenient way than exploring the whole island and competing with other players for some chests. Furthermore, you can also try to access Monte island during the early hours, as there will be low activity and less amount of players in the competition.
After completing the quest, you will receive the Monte island participation reward in Lost Ark. It is a kind of currency that you can use for the island and can be exchanged with the island’s vendor for exclusive rewards. The island’s vendor is called Traveler Herodot.
You will be able to exchange the participation reward for items like engravings and even get a chance to unlock some crew mates for your ship. However, there will be a limit to these rewards.
You won’t be able to exchange the rewards for crew mates more than once; however, you will be able to obtain the engraving chest twice a week for rare and five times a week for uncommon engravings.
Even if you don’t win the quest, you will be able to get silver just by participating in it. However, the top four players will get the most amount of silver in the game.
