In our How to Dismantle Items Lost Ark, Dismantle or Sell Items guide, we’ll show you how the dismantling system works and if it’s worth it. By that, I mean whether you can profit more by pulling stuff apart or selling them whole. The system is relatively simple and intuitive, but still, a little bit of clarification can go a long way. So, let’s begin.
How to Dismantle Items in Lost Ark
To dismantle items in Lost Ark, you first need to unlock the feature. Play through the game until you reach Nevatia Ruins. Once you get there, find the NPC called Archaeologist Hadim. This person has a quest for you, and when you complete it, you’ll get the option to dismantle items. Open your inventory and click the little hammer icon in the bottom left of the inventory window (as marked in the image above). From there, you can choose to dismantle either item by item, or use the sorting options to dismantle several items that fit specific categories all in one go. And that’s about all there is to it. Play around with the system however you want, see what you can get. That kinda brings me to our next point…
Lost Ark Dismantle or Sell Items
Now that we know how to dismantle items in Lost Ark, we should discuss whether you should dismantle things or sell them outright. The answer to this dilemma is as simple as it can get – always go with dismantle. Always. Why? Because dismantling items rewards you with all sorts of potentially useful stuff – cloth, ability stones, all sorts of things. More importantly, even if you don’t need anything you got from dismantling, you’ve still made the right choice. If you sell the results of dismantling an object, as a rule, you’ll get more money than if you sold the object as a whole. It doesn’t make much sense to me, but that’s how the game’s economy works at the moment.
