Lost Ark Sol Grande World Boss Guide: Location, Loot & Tactics

Lost Ark has quite a few end game world bosses for you to get stuck into. While they are not mandatory pieces of content, they do offer players a variety of extra loot sources, engraving books, and other valuable pieces of progression. One of these is the Lost Ark Sol Grande boss, which is a perfect option for players looking to grab some extra goodies during their T2 progression.

Lost Ark Sol Grande Guide

The purpose of this Lost Ark Sol Grande guide is to help you progress through T2 content. We will highlight Sol Grande’s location, and you’ll get a look at the Sol Grande loot that can drop, letting you know if the fight is worth your time. We will also offer you a list of Sol Grande mechanics worth noting so you can avoid sinking your silver on repairs.

It is also worth mentioning the fight requires the player to have 1040 item level. If you do not have this item level, then you cannot hit the boss. You need to land your skills against the target; otherwise, you cannot get the kill credit towards the fight. Bookmark us and come back later if you do not have the required item level to participate.

Lost Ark Sol Grande Location

Lost Ark Sol Grande is a T2 world boss that spawns on the island of Alteisen. It is a tiny island in the bottom right of the Arthertine sea. We have proved a picture to help you track the Sol Grande location.

Sol Grande can be found on the island marked with the red circle.

To access the world boss, however, you need to wait for the event for the world boss to spawn. The boss is locked behind event spawns. If you head over to the Lost Ark calendar in the top left of the screen, you can click on it, select the date, click the field boss tab and take a look at the world boss spawn times. Make your way over to Sol Grande at the appropriate time and fight the boss.

Sol Grande Tactics

Sol Grande has a few skills to watch out for.

The Lost Ark Sol Grande tactics don’t really show anything special. It is rather bland for a world boss, meaning if you have fought any world boss in Lost Ark, then you’ll more than likely have an idea of what to expect. However, this boss can hit rather hard, so here are some tactics to pay attention to.

  • Air Strike – This is the most crucial skill to watch for. The boss will repeatedly start spinning around in circles. The boss will send forth waves of missiles down to the ground during this time. You need to stay on your toes to avoid as much damage as possible. The safest spot appears to be under the boss’s blue spinning energy arms.
  • Ground and Pound – The boss will repeatedly hit its big robot hands into the ground. Anyone in melee range directly opposite the boss will get hit several times. Roll when the boss postures forward on its left foot and look like it is about to strike if you’re at its front. This is also an ideal time to get your back attacks in.
  • Charge – The boss has one standard charge mechanic. Dodge the red rectangle skill shot on the floor, and you won’t collide with the boss.
  • Sideways Slam – The boss will raise both hands to its side and then slam down. Avoid the red circles as that highlights the impact areas. These circles also blow up so you take two sets of damage. You can tell the skill is coming when the boss pulls two daggers out and holds one in each hand.
  • Bomb Throw – The boss will select a target and throw a bomb at them. Any stacked players will need to move from where the bomb is heading to by simply rolling away.
  • Whirlwind – The boss ‘T poses’ on you, spinning his arms around in a 360 degrees several times. Dodge it as it is considered a melee range 360 degree attack.

Sol Grande Loot

One of the reasons you’re going to want to do this World Boss is simply because it offers extra ways to get honing resources and gear. You can only get gear so many times a day or week via the Abyss Dungeons, Guardian Raids and Chaos Dungeons grinds. So, if you want more ways of getting items, then talking part with appropriate world bosses like Sol Grande is a great idea. You can expect decent legendary quality items that offer you solid boosts to your gear.

Also, Sol Grande provides the player with decent ways to get their engravings levelled up to different qualities.
