Peacemaker Gunslinger Gearing Guide for Lost Ark

Last updated on Feb 19, 2023 at 12:00 by Spin 1 comment

Gunslinger blazes through enemies with three types of weapons; the Pistol, Shotgun, and Sniper. Gunslinger offers a unique playstyle with weapon-swapping and multi-range capability, as well as one of the highest APM rotations in the game. Gunslinger comes with two different playstyles, Peacemaker and Time to Hunt.


Peacemaker: Accessories, Card Sets, Engravings and Gearsets

Peacemaker Icon Peacemaker has a pretty standardized build with one or two options for engravings and gearsets that are based on preference. Compared to Time to Hunt Icon Time to Hunt, you'll shave some cost with Crit being your main stat instead of Specialization. Although, due to the popularity of the class, don't expect everything to be dirt cheap!


Card Sets

Card sets are shared across both engravings for Gunslinger. In the early game you can use cards that help with survivability such as Field Boss II Icon Field Boss II, We'll Meet Again Icon We'll Meet Again and Forest of Giants Icon Forest of Giants. For optimal damage you'll want Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation at 18 or 30 awakening, though is quite a late game goal. Lostwind Cliff Icon Lostwind Cliff provides additional Critical Rate and is a solid stand-in as you gradually work towards Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation.



There aren't plenty of options to choose from, Peacemaker Icon Peacemaker's engravings are straightforward.

Engraving Priority Description
Peacemaker Icon Peacemaker Necessity Only use this at either Level 1 or Level 3 depending on what build you go for.
Grudge Icon Grudge Very High This is a staple damage engraving. As a DPS you should be using this as an immediate slot-in for your setup.
Hit Master Icon Hit Master High None of your attacks have postitionals and is generally cheaper than Cursed Doll Icon Cursed Doll. The favored option between the two that rounds out your fourth level 3 engraving.
Keen Blunt Weapon Icon Keen Blunt Weapon High At an easily obtainable 60% chance, you'll get around 16% damage from this. Your main source of Critical Rate stemming from stat and party synergy.
Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline High Can be taken at any level, the additional Critial Rate is highly valued. Generally taken most at Lv.2 in a 4x3+2+1 build.
Cursed Doll Icon Cursed Doll Optional Highlights your squishiness while providing Attack Power. An alternative to Hit Master Icon Hit Master in 5x3 if you already have books for it.
Ether Enhancement Icon Ether Predator Optional Mainly taken for those fortunate enough to have a 5x3+1 build assuming you are running Peacemaker Icon Peacemaker at Level 3.


Starting in Legendary gear, you'll want the Preordained Diligence Icon Preordained Diligence set from Argos to give you additional Critical Rate. You can use the 2-piece gear from Valtan Normal but it's only recommended if you intend on parking your character at 1415. Once you obtain Relic gear, you have some options depending on what build you want.

  1. Nightmare Icon Nightmare Flower: Provides the most damage overall, requiring an Awakening use at the start of an encounter.
  2. Salvation Icon Poem of Salvation: Grants desired ATK. Speed with similar damage to Nightmare depending on your weapon's quality. Building stacks from 0 doesn't take long but losing them by proccing "Take a Break" will be a huge damage loss.
