Lost Ark Aurion: Location & spawn rate

Aurion spawns on the tiny island paradise of Wildwater Island, located at the heart of the Whispering Sea. The quickest way to get there is to set sail from Crescent Moon Marina on Rethramis northwestern coast.

As Aurion is a Field Boss, its spawn rate is relatively low. In order to double check when it spawns next, use your Calendar on the top left of the screen to check when this fearsome elemental will rear its head once more.

After 15 minutes the boss enters Berserk mode, where he will gain movement speed and attack damage. In order to ensure this happens, you’ll need all of the DPS you can get to take it down quickly.

Below are all of its attacks, what they do, and how to counter them:

Attack What it does Counter
AoE Blast Aurion charges up and unleashes a circular AoE blast around it Dodge out of the red AoE marker
Charge Aurion charges in a straight line No marker appears, so you’ll need to keep an eye to see if he gets ready to charge
Wave Roll Aurion summons waves that consume the battlefield Dodge away from the waves, or cling to the shore to avoid them. You can also block them with shielding abilities from your Bard or Paladin
Water Geyser Random plumes of water will burst out of the ground There are no markers for these, so unfortunately you’ll just need to try and dodge them
Waterball Boomerang Aurion shoots out a ball of water directly at a player, which then returns to him and continues to deal damage The first hit is pretty much impossible to dodge, but ensure that you don’t stay in the same place so that it doesn’t hit you on the way back.
Crashing Water Ring Aurion pushes out an AoE energy attack, whose energy is delayed. The attack then pulses for a few seconds. This engulfs almost the entire island if he’s in the center of it, so try and keep to the shoreline


Aurion’s most important reward is the Wildwater Island Soul, one of the many Island Souls that are up for grabs.

Aside from this, there’s a slew of other rewards available, but remember these drop at random, so you’ll need to defeat Aurion multiple times if you’re looking to claim them all:
