Rapport is defined as “a close and harmonious relationship in which the people or groups concerned understand each other’s feelings or ideas and communicate well.” In Lost Ark, this is a system that the game uses to track how much NPCs like you. Since having higher Rapport with other characters will open up things such as new quests, you definitely want to build this up as high as you can. Our Lost Ark Rapport Guide, Best Rapport Gifts & NPCs article will explain the ins and outs of this complicated system. This includes clarifying how does Rapport work, how to increase it, what are the best Rapport NPCs, best Rapport gifts, and where to get these Rapport gifts.

How Does Rapport Work in Lost Ark

The Rapport system is a measurement of how much the NPC likes you. It has several tiers, starting at Neutral, followed by Amicable, Friendly, and Trusted. A few NPCs can also take this to another level beyond Trusted called Affection. When you reach these higher levels, you will get rewards and new Quests will open up. Each of these NPCs also have Virtue stat requirements that you will need to meet. These are: Wisdom, Charisma, Courage, and Kindness. If you don’t have these high enough, you won’t be able to raise Rapport until you have these Virtues. As you can see, this is a very involved system, one which takes a lot of time and grinding to get to the highest levels. You can find more information in our detailed guide about Virtues and how to increase Charisma, Kindness, Wisdom and Courage.

Each NPC has gifts, instruments, and emotes that they respond to favorably. Doing these will cause their Rapport to go up. Note that you are limited to 99 gifts, 5 instruments, and 5 emotes to them a day.

Where to Get Rapport Gifts in Lost Ark

As we mentioned, each NPC has gifts that they prefer. You can see these in the Adventure tab, or by pressing Alt + N. To get gifts, you will need to earn heart-shaped currency from doing daily tasks and events. You can then trade this currency for gifts from merchants and other vendors.

    OK so I have an issue – I cant complte the next rapport quest until I have 50 kindness, (it says 6/50 kindness), but i cant give a gift until i complete the quest, and i cant complete the quest bc I cant get kindness, so how do i increase kindness without interacting with her? am in a loop that I just cant get out of now?

      You can get those virtue status (Courage, Wisdom, Charisma and Kindness) by doing side quests (Not all of them) around the world that will reward you with some points.
      You can also go into the Titles in your character panel and try to farm some of them.
      Skins also grant alot of stats buying them at the market.

      No idea if you still need help on this or if you’ll get notified of this reply, but to increase kindness you’ll have to do sides quests or main quests, progressing through stuff you’ll gain 1 here and there from quick easy ones and they’ll add up. You can also get permanent stat boost potions from completing adventurers tomes in some areas, or as rewards from increasing rapport from other NPCs that you have emotes/songs for or can give gifts. 🙂

    ya this article doesn’t say how to actually
    obtain gifts. I have yet to encounter a ‘daily task’ which gives ‘heart-shaped currency’

      I think he’s referring to the Providence stone that’s shaped like a heart you get from side quests or progression, I haven’t gotten any dailies yet but still have some from the first island rewards along the way. If that’s not it then I got no idea either.
