What is design mode in Lost Ark?
Design mode in Lost Ark lets you place structures, furniture, NPCs, and more around your stronghold island. These can grant buffs to your stronghold and your characters. It also allows you to customize the appearance of your stronghold.
To place structures, you must first acquire them, typically through crafting. NPCs can be placed once you have obtained a high enough rapport with them. You can even place a version of yourself on your stronghold.
