Lost Ark offers a bunch of exciting islands with some of the best rewards in the game. Today we look at Monte Island, how to get there, what the rewards are and more!
The Adventure Islands are among the coolest and most rewarding places in Lost Ark, and one of the most interesting and most popular of them is Monte Island. This one is just like all the other Adventure Islands in that it has to have an event activated if you want to earn the Island Token. But it's also a special place, since it asks you for a bit of PvP action if you want to earn the precious Island Token. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Read on to see everything you need to know about Monte Island, including the location, the rewards, a guide on how to earn the island token and more!
How To Find Monte Island
Monte Island can be a bit tricky to find, and actually to find at the right time. We'll show you how to get there though:
Monte Island Location
Monte Island is located in the Sea of Heavens, north-east of Bern and across the sea from Faten. To get there, players will (obviously) first unlock a ship and the ability to sail. But even if you know where Monte Island is and find the place, which you can see on the map above (provided by Papunika), that doesn't mean you can just sail ahead. Monte Island isn't always there, it only spawns in at random times.
Monte Island Spawn Time
To see when Monte Island will spawn in Lost Ark, you will need to use Procyon’s Compass, which shows you different scheduled events and dungeons. Follow these steps to use the compass and find out, when Monte Island spawns:
- Select the compass icon under the mini-map in the upper-left corner of the HUD to open Procyon’s Compass.
- Click on ‘Appearance Info’ for ‘Adventure Island’ from the activity tab menu.
- Set an in-game alarm in Lost Ark to track when the Monte Island event begins.
What Are The Rewards on Monte Island?
There are different types of rewards that you can earn on Monte Island. You won't have any fighting to do there, but it is still recommended that you reach level 50 and item level 250 before you go there.
How To Earn The Island Token on Monte Island
In Lost Ark you can earn Island Tokens, which mark your progress in the game and help you earn rewards. To earn Island Tokens you have to play and finish each island's specific quest. Like we said, Monte Island doesn't ask you to fight anyone or anything, instead it makes players compete against each other in a treasure hunt.
As soon as you set foot on the Island, a competitive quest starts in which all players have to search the area for chests. These chests are marked on the mini-map, but there also hidden chests spread out across the island. Make sure you search carefully among the trees and foliage to find these sneaky bad boys. Every chest opened by a player rewards them points, and once a total of 5000 points has been reached, the competition ends and the scores will be counted.
If you complete the quest, you will receive the Monte Island Participation Reward. You can use that reward to buy items from the island's vendor, Traveler Herodot. You will also get silver, one of the main currencies in Lost Ark, for doing the quest. Every player gets a certain amount of silver, but the top 4 players will get even more:
- 20,000 Silver
- 15,000 Silver
- 10,000 Silver
- 1,500 Silver
In order to get the Island Token on Monte Island, you will need to complete the quest enough times until you get the token. It is a random drop, so you will most likely have to do the quest multiple times before you finally get the token. But hey, at least you will earn some coin from all this effort!
Monte Island: Mokoko Seeds Locations
The Island Token and a bunch of very useful currency is not all that you can find on Monte Island. Of course, the island also has four of the highly sought-after Mokoko Seeds. Beware that you need the Song of Resonance to get two of those, though. We will show you how to find the Mokoko Seeds on Monte Island.
Here's a map of Monte Island, courteously of Maxroll, which shows all four Mokoko Seeds Locations:
As you can see, the Mokoko Seeds are spread across three sides of the island. Since it's not a huge place, though, you shouldn't struggle too much with finding them all.
And that's it! You now know everything you need to know to have a good time on Monte Island.
