Guide to the Lost Ark Engravings as well as information on how to use Ability Stones from Blake Gosse's blog

If you go to the Roster menu in Lost Ark, you'll notice a tab labeled 'Engraving Effects. ' Click on Lost Ark Gold store to learn more.  A total of 45 combat bonuses (available to the entire Roster) are distributed among the two class bonuses (which are only available to your current class).

You can see the effects of the engravings on this page by hovering your mouse over them.  Each Engraving has three levels, and you must unlock five 'nodes' in order to progress through each level.  The effect will not be active until you reach the fifth node of an Engraving if you have upgraded lost ark gold but have not yet reached the fifth node.  It takes a lot of Engraving upgrades to get to this point, so cheap lost ark gold's completely normal for you to have a lot of inactive Engravings before you reach level 50.

What is the best way to facet Ability Stones in Lost Ark?
While unsuccessful faceting attempts increase the chance of success on the next attempt by 10%, successful faceting attempts decrease the chance of success on the next attempt by 10%.  If your chances of success are slim (as shown in the illustration), you should focus your efforts on the negative effect.  Listed below is a sound strategy to keep in mind.

If your chances of success are 65% or 75%, use  on the best Engraving effect you have available.
Keep in mind that you will still need to be fortunate in order to obtain a good Ability Stone.  An even 75% chance of failure may occur several times.  If this occurs, simply dismantle the Ability Stone at the Ability Stone Cutter's station in exchange for crafting materials, and you'll be on your way.
