Best Astray Crew
The one and true ruler of the seas

The Astray ship and its crew are the focus of this article. I'll paint a clear picture of the ideal crew composition for the Astray Ship in Lost Ark. In The Lost Ark's huge universe, you'll find numerous islands. If you plan on doing a lot of exploring, it's crucial that you have a good ship in your fleet. The Astray ship and its top crew are available for your use in Lost Ark for this very purpose.

When it comes to speed, the best pirate ship in the game is the Astray. Whoever possesses it has absolute control over the seas. It is fast, and it can withstand any kind of dangerous water. Astray has a basic speed of 22 knots and a durability of 3,100. To gain resistance and the fabled speed, a top-tier crew is essential. The crew can be as hard to find as the ship itself, if not harder.

A wide variety of sailors are available to recruit in Lost Ark. Your ship's resistance to damage is increased or decreased for each sailor, and every sailor grants a certain amount of speed. The best results can be achieved with your Astray Ship if you recruit the right crew for it.
