Last Epoch Must Read Beginners Guide

Welcome, brave souls and aspiring time-travelers, to the world of Last Epoch, where killing monsters is as routine as your morning coffee, and time is just a playground. Whether you're an ARPG (Action Role-Playing Game) hotshot from Diablo 4 or Path of Exile, or someone who thought ARPG stood for "Advanced Raccoon-Punching Game," you're in for a treat. So, grab your gear and let's jump into this wacky guide to starting your Last Epoch adventure!

Picking Your Playground

First off, choose your realm and game mode. You've got two choices here:

  • Online: Like a space-age social club. You get to play with friends, trade, and show off your cool loot. But hey, you only get 20 character slots, so choose wisely!
  • Offline: For the lone wolves who don’t need no internet. It's just you, the game, and as many characters as your heart desires. Go wild!

The Realm Dilemma: Cycle or Legacy?

  • Cycle: The cool kid on the block. Fresh start, new economy, and those sweet, sweet leaderboards. Lasts about 3-4 months, just like your motivation to exercise.
  • Legacy: The old faithful. Where your previous characters chill and reminisce about the good ol' days. No leaderboards here, just nostalgia.

Game Mode: Normal or Hardcore?

  • Normal: The chill zone. You die, you respawn. No sweat!
  • Hardcore: For the adrenaline junkies. Die once, and it's game over, pal. But hey, you get bragging rights.

Challenges for the Brave (or Insane)

  • Solo Account Found: For solo artists. Share your stash and crafting materials like a good neighbor.
  • Solo Character Found: Hardcore soloing. Start from scratch every time. Perfect for those who love pain.

Class Selection: Who Do You Wanna Be?

You’ve got five fabulous classes to choose from:

  • Mage: For those who like zapping things.
  • Sentinel: Big armor, big weapons, big fun.
  • Acolyte: Creepy, crawly, and oh-so-spooky.
  • Primalist: For the nature-loving, tree-hugging types.
  • Rogue: Sneaky, stabby, and stylish.

Each class gets a Mastery choice. Think of it as choosing a major in college, but with more monsters and less debt.

The Campaign: A Wild Ride Through Time

You'll trot across different timelines, like a cosmic tourist. There are 9 chapters to conquer, with rewards like passive points, idol slots, and attribute stats. It's like collecting stamps in your passport, but cooler.

Level Up Like a Boss

Both you and your skills level up. It's like having two birthdays at once! Collect passive points, build your skill tree, and become the hero Eterra deserves.

Gear Up, Buttercup!

Gearing is key. You've got all sorts of rarities, from Common to "Whoa, is that even legal?" Collect, craft, and gear up to become a walking armory.

Crafting: Like Cooking, but With More Explosions

Crafting in Last Epoch is predictable and rewarding. It's like following a recipe, but instead of a cake, you get a sword that can decapitate demons. Sweet!

Monolith of Fate: The Endgame Extravaganza

This is where the real fun begins. It's a labyrinth of challenges, rewards, and bosses. Think of it as a theme park, but instead of rides, you get to kill stuff.
