The Lost Ark Selfie Mode acts like the photo mode feature that is becoming increasingly more common in major titles in gaming, especially thanks to the many PlayStation games which have it. Lost Ark may not be as graphically beautiful as many AAA games, but its aesthetics allow for some great photography potential. So if you want to access the Lost Ark Selfie mode to snap some pictures, we'll show you how. 

Lost Ark Selfie Mode: How To Unlock Selfie Mode

The Selfie Mode isn't automatically unlocked once you create your character and get into the Lost Ark servers, as you will need to progress through the story first. Luckily this won't take long, as it's quite early into the main story, and previously the beginning of the game was longer as players didn't begin at level ten. 

The quest you will need to finish before unlocking Selfie Mode is called Saviour, which can be accessed soon into the game, after you've finished Armen Besieged. Once you've saved Armen from the bridge, he will hand you the quest and task you with meeting him at the Prideholme Cathedral. The path is straightforward and your minimap will guide you toward the location. 


Once you get there you will see a crowd of spectators who are watching Armen perform healing miracles on injured and sick villager. Wait for a path to open through the crowd and go speak to Armen and Varut at the front of the cathedral. Once this conversation is over, talking to Varut once more will end the quest and Selfie Mode will be freely available to use. 

Lost Ark Selfie Mode: Using Selfie Mode

After Selfie Mode has been unlocked, you can access it by clicking the small camera icon below the minimap in the top right of the UI. Once it has been activated, you'll be able to pose your character, change their expressions, and toggle whether NPCs, monsters, players, or party members or visible. To manipulate your character, hold down the left mouse button and move it. You can also use the right mouse button to rotate the camera, use the WASD keys to move it around the environment, and use the scroll wheel to zoom in or out. 

Once you're happy with the setup, press the print screen button to remove the UI on the screen and take the photo. You can also use your Steam screenshot key to take photos, but this won't remove the UI element. To find your photos afterwards, assuming you are using Windows, navigate toward the following folder on your computer:
