How to use Lost Ark Preset Converters

Get the nice Korean presets into your game.

Lost Ark has some of the best character customization players can find in an MMO. Developers Tripod Studio and Smilegate also know that and have allowed the players to import other gamers’ characters in your game as presets. However, there is a large market for Lost Ark, and the game files for NA/EU, Korea, and Russia are different from each other. You can’t just take someone’s preset file from Korea and use it in your game in the United States without changing the file’s region. This is why you will need to either edit the file yourself or use a Preset Converter to get it done in seconds. Since this is the easier method, here is how you can use a Preset Convert to import presets from other regions in Lost Ark.

How to use a Preset Converter to get new presets in Lost Ark

When you download a preset file from a forum or a specific site for Lost Ark, you will have to make sure that it is a .cus file. Otherwise, it means that you haven’t downloaded a preset file. If it is a .zip file, make sure to extract the .cus file before accessing a Preset Converter website.

Now, you will have to make sure that the .cus file is for your region; otherwise, it won’t work. You could open the file using Notepad and change the region, but you can make errors and ruin the file. So, the best option is a Preset Converter.

Here are the steps you need to follow to use a Preset Converter for Lost Ark successfully:

  1. Upload the preset .cus file you want to convert.
  2. You will now see the original region of the file. Click on the region you want to convert to (NA/EU/SA, Korea, or Russia) and download the new .cus file.
  3. Make sure that the file has a name that looks like this: “Customizing_(class)_slot0.cus”
  4. Open your Lost Ark installation folder in SteamLibrary\steamapps\common.
  5. Place the .cus file you downloaded in the Lost Ark\EFGame\Customizing folder.

Now, you should be able to find the preset in Lost Ark after opening the game. If you want to add more presets for a single class, just change the number at the end of the .cus file. For example, you can have the following files in the Customizing folder:

  • Customizing_Fighter_slot0.cus
  • Customizing_Fighter_slot1.cus
  • Customizing_Fighter_slot7.cus

As long as the class name is valid and the numbers don’t overlap, everything should work well. Now you can finally use all those pretty Korean presets in your Lost Ark playthrough.
