Lost Ark White Wind vs Estoque: Which Ship to Upgrade

Sailing is an essential aspect of Lost Ark, but you’ll never be able to sail until you’ve finished the majority of the main campaign. After you’ve unlocked the sailing ships, you’ll be overwhelmed by all the new content being thrown at you.

There are a variety of ships available, and players can upgrade all of them to enhance their performance. Estoque and White Wind are among the most sought-after ships in Lost Ark, and many players are uncertain about which one to upgrade. Upgrades to ships in Lost Ark are an investment as the ship can involve several moving parts and it’s also costly. So, it’s best to upgrade just one ship at one time. That’s why you could be wondering whether to modify the Estoque or the White Wind. Let’s dig into both ships in detail and find out which one to pick.

Which Ship should you upgrade White Wind vs Estoque in Lost Ark?

Both ships have their advantages and drawbacks. The Estoque ship has a base speed of 20.0, while the White Wind ship has a base speed of 19.0. Estique has a base ship repair cost of 1,260, while the White Wind has a base repair cost of 1,665. In addition, the Estoque offers well-balanced all-around immunity, whereas the White Wind ship has more immunity focusing on Sandstorms. Estoque is less durable having base durability of 3500. White Wind has higher durability of 3700; however, this isn’t a factor in speed or resistance over the long term.

Immunity is important on ships since numerous hazards can decrease your endurance speed within and around the Sea of Gienah. So, it is suggested to upgrade your Estoque ship due to its well-balanced all-around resistances instead of the White Wind ship.

We recommend staying to the Estoque and upgrading it, even though you’ll begin working towards getting the Astray ship to upgrade and unlock it. In the meantime, it is recommended to stick with the Estoque.
