He continued, “This is one of the steps we are taking combat botters, as it will help prevent them from being able to circumvent some of the restrictions we have in place and make it more difficult for them to connect to the game.”

That said, if you are not using any VPNs or Proxy settings and are still getting the Lost Ark Server Authentication Failed 10010 error, firstly, check if the game servers are live and are not overpopulated. 

If everything is fine and you are still getting the said error, here are some troubleshooting steps you can perform to fix it:

  • Soft reset your Router: Plug out the power cable, wait for thirty seconds, and then plug the cord back in.
  • Flush DNS: Open Command Prompt or Windows Power Shell and flush your DNS using “ipconfig /flushdns” command to clear the cache. 
  • Use custom DNS instead of automatic.
