Lost Ark: Find, activate and upgrade Engravings - Game Guide

Collect and find engravings

You can obtain the Engravings in Lost Ark using Ability Stones - the first ones can be obtained from a tutorial quest in Luterra. From level 50 you reach countless stones that are dropped by opponents you defeat in Guardian Raids, Abyssal Dungeons, Tower, Cube, and Chaos Dungeon. You also get stones by defeating bosses or various quest rewards.

Also in the auction house, it is possible that you can acquire the stones through a trade. When you get Engravings from these Skill Stones, you will randomly get two Engravings with good stats and one with a bad stat.

Improve and activate engravings

If you have already received two engravings, you can immediately combine them with your character. In addition, it is also possible that you get skill stones over different levels and only have to grind them. You can even get extra bonuses to your engravings with the help of some trinkets implemented in your gear.
