Lost Ark has a honing system that allows players to upgrade their weapons and gear to keep up with higher-level activities.
Gear, which is the equivalent of armor, comes in a handful of different categories. Players can wear the likes of hats, pauldrons, chest pieces, launchers, pants and gloves to protect their character.
One resource that players need to hone their gear is Caldarr Fusion Material. The upper gear score levels require it.
Caldarr Fusion Material can be crafted or purchased from the Market. It can also be obtained by completing Welcome challenges.
