Should You Save or Run Away From Gerka In Lost Ark? 

After grabbing a stone tablet that Gerka should not have touched, he and his companions will all begin to turn to stone. You are immediately forced to choose between saving or running away from Gerka. If you choose to run away, you’ll leave Gerka to his own demise, and the quest will continue.

If you choose to Save Gerka, it’s too late and Gerka still meets an untimely death. The choice doesn’t actually have any real bearing on the story, nor your character’s development. Don’t sweat it too much, we agonized over it for longer than we needed to. 

Just keep playing through the game, and maybe don’t touch any stone tablets you shouldn’t.
