Lost Ark offers players a home like other MMOs but rather than a house, players receive a stronghold. This acts as their base of operation for their characters and has many different uses. But nearly all of these features require the use of Stronghold Action Energy. This may leave players wondering what is Stronghold Action Energy in Lost Ark.
In Lost Ark, Stronghold Action Energy is a resource players use for various tasks. This includes crafting, researching, dispatching units on missions, and more. This can be seen at the bottom of your UI when in your stronghold. Each task requires a certain amount of Stronghold Action Energy.
Stronghold Action Energy recovers over real-time, and this amount is increased by an extra ten percent if you have a Crystalline Aura active. Managing your Stronghold Action Energy is a good idea because you will not be able to use your stronghold features if it runs out.
Players receive their stronghold after helping Thirain take over Luterra Castle, around level 25 or 26. Gaining the stronghold opens up many new opportunities, and players should take advantage of everything it offers.
