By the way, you are not missing anything mind-breaking by skipping Lost Ark story but you are still skipping part of the game. The story is not bad, but it's simple. If you played an MMORPG hero you kind of played all of them.

Personally, I like to know why I am fighting something, but that's just me.

On the good side, I am not committing genocide burning someone's capital city so there is that.
