How to fix Lost Ark long server queues issue?

Lost Ark Character Creation Limits on Servers

Lost Ark has limited the creation of characters by new players on servers that have reached large queue times. This will aid in preventing queues from increasing further as our player base continues to grow.

This character creation limit will remain in place for the foreseeable future, and we will provide an update when it is eventually removed.
