The May update brings new raid, class and more
This can happen to you since the update
on Reddit and in the official Lost-Ark-Foren players report that when moving or clicking on an item, it gets stuck on the mouse pointer. Once an item is stuck, it is often impossible to select other items with the mouse, move around, or otherwise interact with the game using the mouse pointer.
Some comments reported that after that it was only possible to exit the game using the Alt + F4 key combination. A video from Reddit shows us what the bug looks like:

This is how you solve the problem
Although we cannot guarantee that the proposed solutions from the Reddit-Thread help all players, but at least in some cases they seem to make the bug go away.
- Change territory or enter fortress: A loading screen often helps to get rid of the bug, for example when you enter a new area.
- Switch to another window: Some users also report that switching to another window with the Alt + Tab key combination and switching back to the game fixes the bug.
- Enter character creation menu:
- Visit auction house: Also calling up the auction house followed by a click on
to registerseems to have helped in some cases. To do this, however, you must visit an NPC or, if you have a crystalline aura, you can use the companion menu.
If these simple tricks don’t help, the only thing left is you log out of the game or restart it completely. If you want to be on the safe side and don’t want to suddenly find yourself without a mouse pointer in a raid, you should wait for a hotfix or patch that fixes the problem.
