Specter Form

Animated GIF

Ark has two forms, Lef Form and Specter Form which he can freely transform between. However, in 1st Job, you will have no control over when you transform. As you progress the story and reach 2nd Job, you unlock the skill Skill Master Corruption Master Corruption that allows you to switch between forms

Specter Form is only a temporary boost and the time is limited. Ark has a special gauge that indicates how long you can stay in Specter Form. This gauge slowly regenerates while in Lef Form. While in Specter Form, certain skills are swapped. These skills will share Skill Points (SP) and the same Key Slot. Below is a list of all Lef and Specter skill counterparts:

  • Skill Mystic Leap / Skill Instinctual Leap Mystic Leap & Instinctual Leap (1st Job)
  • Skill Scarlet Charge Drive / Skill Grievous Wound Scarlet Charge Drive & Grievous Wound (2nd Job)
  • Skill Unstoppable Impulse Unstoppable Impulse & Tenacious Instinct (2nd Job)
