The latest Argos Lost Ark raid requires players to be level 1,370. This is limiting the amount of players in a position to experience the new quest added in an update to the Lost Ark March update.
During this YouTube video, Asmongold speaks about the simplicity Lost Ark players have in upgrading their Tier 3 1,300 gear in the early stages and how quickly the system becomes slower around item level 1,340. Asmongold says that at this point, Lost Ark players will see reduced upgrades to their equipment which will result in a large loss of material.
When you consider how many items are needed between 1,340 and 1,370 , despite appearing to be close in the level of items, Asmongold suggests "access to a credit card" gives players access to for more dungeons and matchmaking and much more for players.
Lost Ark players who notice lower success in upgrading their items around level 1,350 will experience relief when they've reached level 1,370, as it's much easier to upgrade gear using various items that aren't accessible at that level.

While Asmongold acknowledged the few players who manage to attain 1,370 or Lost Ark raids, without having to spend an actual amount to get there cheapest Lost Ark Gold, he also believes it requires an unreasonable length of time in order to achieve a high item level.
