Last Epoch Version 1.0 Patch Notes

Last Epoch Version 1.0 Patch Notes – Release Date and Countdown

Table of Contents

Last Epoch, the hack and slash action role-playing game developed by Eleventh Hour Games, has been on Steam Early Access since April 30, 2019. It's been almost 5 years, but the game is finally being officially launched with version 1.0 - with a huge patch that has mountains of improvements! Full class reworks, visual improvements, and bug fixes hopes to reinvigorate the game completely.

Maintenance starts Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 9:00 AM PST and is expected to last 24 hours:





Server opens Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at 9:00 AM PST:





The action RPG community is highly anticipating Last Epoch's release after the mixed reception of Diablo 4 and as they await the new Path of Exile 2 sometime next year. The game has had its share of controversies throughout its Early Access phase, namely releasing a microtransaction cosmetic shop prior to this release. Another key thing to note about this version is that the campaign is not complete at 9 acts.

As has been the theme for new game releases so far in 2024, the expectation is that there will be a ton of new players and the servers are unlikely to be stable at least for a few days. What's good is that 1.0 will come with a full offline mode, and while the characters won't be able to be transferred to the online servers, you can enjoy that should the game be unplayable during the first few days of the patch release.

Without further ado, enjoy the full patch notes - it's big!

Patch Overview

Last Epoch 1.0 Overview by Game Director, Judd Cobler

Last Epoch is Releasing Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at 9:00 AM PST!

Welcome everyone to the Patch Notes for Last Epoch 1.0! It’s been an amazing road to this point, and it’s unreal to be writing patch notes without using the term “Beta Patch”. With this patch Last Epoch will officially be leaving Early Access. We couldn’t have made it to this point without all of you, our amazing community driving the world of Eterra alongside us. We can not say it enough, Thank you.

We also want to mention again here that to prepare the servers for our release on February 21st, we will be shutting down our servers 24 hours before the patch, starting: Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 9:00 AM PST.

While the servers are down, authentication will not be possible. If you are already playing in offline mode before we take down the servers, you should be able to continue your play session, however offline will not be able to authenticate to log in once the servers are down. This is also a good point to note that one of the features being added with 1.0 is a true offline mode, which will prevent this kind of interference with offline mode in the future.

With that aside, lets get to the patch notes! In just two days, patch 1.0 will be marking the release of Last Epoch, introducing Item Factions, the Warlock Mastery, Falconer Mastery, Gathering Storm, a reworked Tempest Strike, Healing Hands’ Skill tree, balance changes, bug fixes, new music, sounds, animations, models, and more. Once again we’ve provided a Table of Contents below to help you navigate the Patch Notes.

Item Factions


Key Details

You can find an in depth overview of Item Factions here alongside a detailed video 228 with an explanation of the system.

Your first opportunity to join either The Merchant’s Guild or Circle of Fortune comes with your arrival to the Upper District of the great mercantile city, Maj’Elka. Each faction will allow players to make a meaningful and rewarding choice in how they want to empower their loot hunt in Eterra. You will rise through the Ranks of your selected faction and gain Reputation by defeating enemies and completing quests while aligned with that faction. This means that just by going about your adventure, you will passively build Reputation with your current faction.

You can join and leave factions at any time, AND your reputation with a faction is never lost or spent and is also shared across your account in that game mode. This means if you rank up one character to Circle of Fortune Rank 7 on Hardcore Cycle, any of your Hardcore Cycle characters upon joining Circle of Fortune will both share and contribute to that same Rank progression. Characters in a different game mode, such as Solo Challenge, or Normal Cycle, do have their reputation separated in the same way the player Item Stash is. Once one of your characters within a given game mode has joined an Item Faction, subsequent characters in that game mode are able to join a faction at Keeper’s Camp in Chapter 1.

Items you gain through the bonuses of your chosen faction will not be tradable, but can be gifted. Joining a faction will NOT prevent you from playing with ANY other player and you will still be able to gift items to other players regardless of their selected faction.

Overall we have reduced the base item drop rate, especially in end-game because the item factions will significantly boost your ability to not only find more items overall, but also to find higher quality items. Within the first few ranks in CoF this is balanced out, even without Prophecies.

Below you will find a high level overview of each faction, but you can still find all the details in the post here. We can’t wait to see what faction you align with and watch you climb to the top of the ranks!

Circle of Fortune


Joining the Circle of Fortune will grant you boosts to items you find yourself through Prophecies, and passive bonuses. These bonuses will not only improve the rarity of the items you find, but will also increase the quantity and the quality of your loot.

Remember, items you acquire with these bonuses will be tagged as a Circle of Fortune Faction Item which will not be tradable. Additionally, items found in level 60+ zones by characters who have left the Circle of Fortune and are not aligned with any factions will not be tradable. Players who want to find tradable items after leaving Circle of Fortune need to align with Merchant’s Guild.

By choosing to align with the Circle of Fortune you will be directed to visit the Observatory, located in northern Maj’Elka in the Divine Era. The Observatory serves as the Circle of Fortune’s primary hub.

Prophecies and Lenses

Prophecies are pseudo-items which can be purchased in the Observatory that cause certain item drops, or increase the odds of higher tier affixes being generated on an item when you complete the requirements listed on the Prophecy. The Prophecy Event will outline what particular event needs to occur in order for the Prophecy to trigger. Some example events are “Death of Chronomancer Julra”, “Death of an Arena Champion”, “Death of X number of rare enemies”, or “Death of X number of siege golems”.

In the Observatory you can acquire Prophecies by spending Favor through one of the four Telescopes. Each telescope offers Prophecies for specific item types: Armor, Weapons, Idols and Crafting materials, and Accessories.

You will also be able to modify your Telescopes using Lenses to change the type or value of rewards from Prophecies or to change the requirements of the Prophecy Events. Lenses offer a lot of power to customize the ‘randomness’ of prophecies and focus them on the types of items you want, as well as the activities you want to do. There’s also room for more types of Lenses to add in the future, though these will be the four types available with 1.0.

You can find a full breakdown of the Circle of Fortune here.

Merchants Guild


Joining the Merchant’s Guild gives you the ability to trade items with other players through the Bazaar and directly player to player. The Bazaar will be a new town you can find just north of Maj’Elka in the Divine Era. Your Rank with the Merchant’s Guild will determine what kind of trades you’ll be entrusted with. Meaning with more Reputation comes the opportunity to both obtain more powerful and sought-after items.

Buying Items

In the Bazaar you will find numerous stalls with an icon representing what type of item you can find at that stall. At the stall you will be able to purchase the specific item type from Players all across the world who are participating in the same game mode, such as “Hardcore Cycle.”

With the Bazaar, we wanted to make sure players have all the power they need to find what they’re looking for, so in the Bazaar UI you’ll find options here you won’t find in the Loot Filter and the ability to refine your searches to find whatever you need.

If you want to purchase an item directly from another player, you will both need to be in the Merchant’s Guild AND in the same Town. You will be able to initiate player to player trade by simply right clicking on the player when you are nearby.

Regardless of how you buy an item from another player, you’ll first need to make sure you have what you need to purchase the item, including Faction Rank, Favor Cost, and the amount of Gold the seller is asking for. You will not be able to buy or sell Faction Tagged items.

Selling Items

To sell items through the Merchant’s Guild, you’ll want to start by visiting your personal stall. This can be accessed through any vendor in the Bazaar or by speaking to Kubra, a Merchant’s Guild NPC.

In the “My Stall” UI you will be able to easily list an item and the Merchant’s Guild will automatically assign a Favor cost to list the item based on the item quality, list the required rank, and provide you an input box to enter your asking price for the item. Trading directly with a player will work the same, but still requires you to be in the same Town and both be in the Merchant’s Guild.

You will be able to sell any item regardless of rank in the Merchant’s Guild as long as it is not a Factions Tagged Item or an item otherwise marked as “Cannot be Traded.” However, selling an item will still cost 1/4th the Favor required to purchase the item.

You can find a full breakdown of the Merchant’s Guild here.

Blog Post: Healing Hands Skill Tree | Coming to Last Epoch February 21st 321



Normally, players can Gift an item to another player only if they were present when the item was found.

Resonances are special items that expand Item Gifting, allowing players to Gift specific items to players they have played with frequently, when the players weren’t together when it was found. Resonances are specific to an individual player and in order to be found, players must play together for extended periods of time.

Progress towards a Resonance drop only happens when defeating enemies that grant experience and is saved between sessions. This means that sometimes a Resonance might drop very shortly after playing together again with the same player.

Once found, the Resonance’s tooltip displays the username it resonates with and after being stored by pressing the “Transfer Materials” button in the inventory, it can be used to allow Gifting of an otherwise ineligible item to that player.

There are two types of Resonances. Golden Resonance is the more common one and allows the gifting of Normal, Magic, Rare, Set, Unique items with no Legendary Potential, and Idols. Obsidian Resonance, which is much rarer, needs to be used when attempting to Gift Exalted, Uniques with Legendary Potential and Legendary items.

Resonances do not change any item use requirements such as Faction Rank requirements.


We recommend players to create Cycle characters.

Cycles are Last Epoch’s “Seasons” which will start with each major game update, such as 1.0 or 1.1. With the start of each Cycle, all Players will have the option to create new characters in an environment where nobody has prior progression, making it a fresh start for everyone. Only Cycle characters are able to compete in the current Cycle’s leaderboards.

Once a Cycle ends, Leaderboard placements are locked in and stored, making it impossible to submit new placements for that Cycle. Those placements will be viewable from the Leaderboards page (opened by pressing L by default). All characters and items will transfer over to Legacy, where also all pre-1.0 characters and items are.

Legacy characters cannot submit new placements to the Leaderboards, or trade or party with Cycle characters.

Full Offline Mode

  • Added the ability to launch Last Epoch in a fully offline mode
  • This can be accessed through the Steam UI by following these instructions:
    • Right clicking on the game in your library
    • Select Properties
    • Under general there will be a section titled Launch Options
    • Under the dropdown menu you can select to launch Last Epoch in Full Offline Mode or have it ask you every time you launch the game
  • You will likely get prompted to choose this preference when you first launch the game after downloading the 1.0 version
  • In order to play the game online after launching in Full Offline Mode, you will need to fully exit and re-launch the game in non-Full Offline mode
  • Using Escape in Offline Mode now pauses the game
  • Feature differences in Full Offline mode:
    • Bug Report and Support Ticket buttons are removed
    • Chat item linking is disabled, though chat window can still be viewed
    • Region Selection dropdown shows as unavailable
    • Online character tab is hidden
    • Cannot return to the Landing Zone page after selecting Play Offline
    • A full restart of application is required to change between Full Offline and Online modes

Visual Upgrades

Scene Variant System

LE_Scene_Variants (1)

The scene variant system is another major system we are introducing for 1.0. It is basically a set of tools and shaders which allow us to improve the visual quality of our scenes and add more variety to the game. It allows us to create dramatically different-looking scenes by using scene variant templates.

With shader changes, we now can change the vegetation, wetness of our surfaces, and add puddles to the scene using just shader functions. In other words, we can now have richer looking scenes, while improving performance in the process.

This system allows us to bring much more variety into the game. For example monolith scene can look very different each time you will enter it.

  • Added a new system that changes the environment and appearance of Monolith zones.

Lighting System


In addition to ambient occlusion improvements, we are also adding a modern screen-space Soft Shadow system. In scenes that previously had no shadows, the player character is now the source of physical light. This increases the dramatic lighting in our scenes where objects around the player properly cast shadow while still keeping performance in check. Since this is a screen space solution, it has a fixed performance cost no matter how many objects or monsters are on the screen.

  • Overhauled shadows in many scenes to enhance their impact and depth
  • Light will follow the player as they progress through the scene and add directionality and dynamic feel to the shadows
    • This system has fixed performance cost which means it won’t scale with additional enemies or objects on screen
    • You can adjust these shadows using the Shadow quality settings
    • Very low shadow quality completely disables this system
  • Improved lighting and postprocessing across the game so scenes will look less washed out, have higher contrast, and a more dramatic look overall.
  • Increased quality of volumetric settings and High and Ultra settings should have increased resolution for volumetric lights
  • New Ambient Occlusion tech which will have an overall more refined and better appearance at higher settings

2.5D Cinematics

  • Added a new intro cinematic to the game that introduces the player to the Divine Era in Chapter 1. This replaces the old class-specific intros.
  • 8 other cinematics added throughout the campaign chapters


  • Updated all character classes with model improvements, better proportions, new rigs, and new animations
  • We’ve continued to improve the performance of our visuals by optimizing textures, drawcalls, model cleanups, shaders, and lighting
  • Terrain shader improvements to make environments more lifelike and visually cleaner

System Changes

Endgame Rebalance

  • You will find more details in the sections for each end game system, but we wanted to give you a quick overview of our changes
  • We have made enemy power come less from endgame modifiers and more from the inherent strength of high level enemies and the base effect of corruption, primarily to achieve a more predictable experience in high corruption Monolith. Specific corruption values should feel like they mean something in terms of difficulty, instead of difficulty varying so wildly based on your current mods.
  • To achieve this enemies have been buffed globally at high levels, corruption scaling has been increased, monolith mods have shorter duration and no longer scale with corruption, and high level dungeon and arena mods have been reduced in power.
  • Overall we have Increased enemy health and damage globally above level 60, by around 5% at level 80 and around 25% at level 100.


  • Disabled bonus xp from Arena for characters below level 50
  • Certain arena mods, especially those specific to T3 and T4 have been adjusted to lessen the impact of the global enemy buffs. However these changes are smaller than the ones to dungeon mods, so T3 and T4 arena will now be noticeably harder than before.
  • Because we have buffed enemies globally overall, we expect that it will be more difficult at a baseline.
  • We have also changed the scaling for enemies in Endless Arena past wave 100 to be much faster. For example, wave 140 is equivalent to the old wave 200, and wave 320 is equivalent to the old wave 500. Consequently achieving high tiers of endless arena is now much harder.


  • Many campaign scenes have been tuned to look and perform better
  • New visual elements have been added to the End of Time
  • Encounters in chapter 4, 5, and 6 have been overhauled
    • Nearly all 4, 5, and 6 scenes contain semi randomized or fully randomized enemy placement.
  • Many enemies with old models have been removed (no more jewel spiders or old chimeras)
  • Many enemies with new models have been added, such as zombie hounds, undead hydras, and bone mimics.
  • Other enemies have been shifted around and rebalanced.
  • The Wraith Dunes no longer has infinitely spawning wraiths.
  • Various bugs with imperial era enemies have been fixed.
  • All scorpion enemies except for the gem scorpion boss and voidstone scorpion now use the new scorpion model.
  • Larger imperial enemies, such as Immortal Eyes and Desecrated Fleshes are now always rare.
  • Quest encounters in 4 and 5 that previously involved a rare enemy now always feature a unique miniboss (e.g. the Imperial Welryn quest has an inquisitor miniboss and the The Sapphire Quarter quest encounters have soul warden and sand lich minibosses).
  • Chapter 4 also has additional minibosses in various zones.
  • Town waypoints now automatically unlock upon entering the zone
  • Time rift portals now say what era it is taking you to in a transition notification


  • Enemies in T1 dungeons deal 35% less damage and they have 25% less health.
  • Removed the entrances from all Dungeons after the player has entered. You can no longer turn around and go back the way you entered.
  • Lightless Arbor changes
    • The Mountain Beneath grants 150% more experience.
    • Stone Titan’s Heart grants 400% more experience.
    • Titanspawns grant 46% more experience.
    • Amber Elementals grans 108% more experience.
    • Rotting Hollows grant 75% less experience.
  • Soulfire Bastion
    • Fire Lich Cremorus grants 350% more experience.
    • Immortal Incinerators grant 50% less experience.
    • Possessed Golems grant 25% less experience.
  • Temporal Sanctum
    • Chronomancer Julra grants 233% more experience
    • Temporal Hunters grant 38% more experience
    • Nightmares grant 27% more experience
  • T3 and T4 dungeon mods have been adjusted so that bosses at those tiers have a similar power to before. However this means that earlier parts of the dungeon will be more difficult, especially for Soulfire Bastion.

  • Wrath of Rahyeh grants 1.2% - 2% throwing leech (from 1.5%-3%)
  • Grand Wrath of Rahyeh grants 2.2%-3.5% throwing leech (from 3.5-5%)

Corruption scaling

  • These changes are intended to allow for faster progression through the monolith for characters that are capable of it.
  • Changed the modifier from corruption to scale up more quickly. It is now larger and scales up faster, especially at high corruption. At corruption 100 it is 60% more monster damage and health (from 50%), at 200 corruption it is 170% (from 100%), at 300 corruption it is 281% (from 147%) and at 500 corruption it is 505% (from 289%).
  • Reduced stability requirements of 2nd and 3rd quest echoes of non-empowered timelines (e.g. level 90 timelines’ 3rd quest echoes require 400 stability instead of 650, the reduction in other cases is smaller though).
  • Increased the additional corruption granted by Gaze of Orobyss by around 10%
  • Average legendary potential and weaver’s will now also scale up slightly with corruption. For example, Uniques have around a 5% higher chance for 1+ LP at 100 corruption, 10% at 300 corruption, and 14% at 600 corruption.

Monolith Mob Density

  • Normalized mob density. It is now 4% lower than before in Reign of Dragons, 8% lower than it was before in the level 90 timelines, and 10% higher in all other timelines (previously Reign of Dragons was 15% higher than most other timelines and the level 90 timelines were 20% higher).
  • Regular monolith echoes contain 5% more enemies (this does not change the number of enemy types in the echoes)

Monolith mod rewards

  • The increased item rarity and experience from modifiers have mostly retained their existing base values.
  • Enemies are deadly if not damage recently now grants 40% increased item rarity (from 20%) and 40% increased experience (from 15%)
  • Enemies enrage at half health now grants 40% increased item rarity (from 18%) and 40% increased experience (from 5%)

Monolith mod scaling

  • Monolith mods’ values are now static and no longer scale up with corruption or distance from the center of the echo web. Additionally their duration now scales up to a maximum of 3 echoes (from 6). The baseline values of various monolith mods have been changed.
  • Mods that scaled invisibly, but no longer scale:
    • Enemies enrage at half health (the size of the buff scaled up at the same pace as things like the increased damage mod)
    • Enemies gain Frenzy and Haste when hit (the size of the buff scaled up at the same pace as things like the increased damage mod)
    • Enemies have high speed and crit chance until approached (the size of the buff scaled up at the same pace as things like the increased damage mod)
    • Enemies are deadly if not damaged recently (the damage buff from Deadly scaled up at half the pace as things like the increased damage mod)
    • Enemies are heal if not damaged recently (the rate of healing scaled up at half the pace as things like the increased damage mod)
    • Enemies have a chance to dodge (the amount of dodge rating scaled up at the same pace as things like the increased damage mod, but was capped at twice its base value.)
    • Rare enemies regenerate health (the amount of health regen scaled up at the same pace as things like the increased damage mod)

New Monolith Echo Modifier Values

  • All Resistances: 25%

Character Creation

  • Added Solo Character Found challenge mode to Online play (continues to exist in Offline play). This functions the same as the previous Offline Solo challenge, where characters cannot party and their stash is isolated from all other characters on that account.
    • We have temporarily disabled the option to abandon Solo challenges due to a bug that we’re working on fixing. We plan to address this with a hotfix, where abandoning the challenge transitions the character to Solo Account Found and deletes their current stash.
  • Removed Masochist challenge mode and replaced with an item that replicates the functionality. The item can be found in the first area of the game.



  • Added Parry as a new defense type and as a new Affix type
  • Parry is a defensive mechanic that grants a chance to negate all damage taken from hits. However, unlike Dodge, Parrying does still count as being hit and as a result of that ailments can still be applied to you when you parry a hit
  • Parry has no effect against Damage over time effects and is capped at 75%
    • It is not currently possible to reach this cap with available sources

Stun Avoidance Rework

  • Changed how stun avoidance affects chance to be stunned.
  • It now adds to the flat percentage reduction in chance to be stunned that’s applied after the rest of the calculation (i.e. stun threshold), rather than to health
    • 100 Stun Avoidance now adds 1% to your stun threshold
    • By default a hit must deal more than 5% of your health to stun you, if you have 100 stun avoidance, that becomes 6%, and if you have 1000 stun avoidance it becomes 15%.
    • The chance that hits above this threshold will stun you is reduced correspondingly.
    • A hit that deals 20% of your health when you have 1000 stun avoidance has the same stun chance as a hit that deals 10% of your health when you have 0 stun avoidance.
  • This means that stun avoidance is no longer additive with health and is now particularly effective against hits that had a small non-zero stun chance, and raises the percentage of your max health that a hit must deal before it can have a chance to stun you.
  • Subsequent stun avoidance related changes:
    • Players’ inherent stun avoidance has been changed from a static 25 to 250 + 5 per character level. This results in the threshold of damage required to stun a player with no stun avoidance from items going from 5% of health + ward + 25 to 7.5%-12.5% of health + ward.
    • The Stun Avoidance suffix has higher values, especially at lower tiers, and can now only roll on rings (from body armor and catalysts)
    • The Hybrid Stun Avoidance prefix has been replaced by a Health and Stun Avoidance suffix. It rolls amulets and belts (from only amulets) and gives slightly more added stun avoidance than the old hybrid stun avoidance affix did and it gives about 20% less health than a health suffix at higher tiers. It starts dropping from level 46 onward (from 13).

Other Mechanics
