Improving Last Epoch

Hey Folks! I am having a blast with Last Epoch but as always the case as I spend hundreds of hours playing a game, I start to create a mental list of things that I would change or do differently. Inevitably I end up making one of these posts where I talk through that list. At this point, I have clocked just over 350 hours of Last Epoch through various phases of its lifecycle and as such I have quite a bit to talk about. I feel like the game is a solid “A-Tier” experience that will very likely be an “S-Tier” game as it continues to evolve. For reference, the only S-Tier ARPG right now on the m ..read more

Ignite Warpath in Monoliths

Morning Folks! I am sure you are all probably sick of me talking about this build, but I think more than anything I am shocked it is still functional. I thought for certain that the wheels would begin to fall off as soon as I got deeper into Monolith Echoes. At this point, I am working on the level 75 Monolith and things still seem to be strong. In fact, as of this morning, I equipped a few new pieces of gear and the damage output seems to be even stronger. The only negative is that I feel like at some point I am going to have some survival problems. I have pretty bad resistance and not a ton ..read more

Almost Righteous Fire

Hey Folks! I’ve been down a rabbit trail for the last few days in Last Epoch where I started a brand new character. Initially, it started out as a “I lapped my friends, so I should start something new so I can play with them” which led me to start a Forge Guard character. Forge Guard is in the same Sentinel class that Void Knight is but in theory, its tree is all about minions and catching things on fire instead of purple damage. I thought it might be fun to play around with some of the minion options there as something a bit different from the Necromancers and Beastmasters that I have played ..read more

Last Epoch Crafting Primer

Good Morning Folks! Yesterday I had a request from one of my friends over on Mastodon to at some point do an explanation of the crafting system for Last Epoch. Apparently at one point I did one of these for Path of Exile… and here is proof that I do not remember half the things that I write here because my mind blanks on what I even said. That said I am going to do my best to fulfill this request but I feel like I need to start off with a few caveats. I am by no means a master crafter nor am I some god of Last Epoch information. This is going to be a rough explanation of the crafting system a ..read more

Nearing Ninety

Good Morning Folks! This weekend was a weekend where I pretty much played nothing but Last Epoch. Given how much I focus in on a single game and then just beat the crap out of it… this should shock no one. What might shock some players however is that I was able to play Last Epoch without a ton of issues in spite of all of the server issues. Unfortunately, this is a side effect of me being in the “endgame” and essentially once you are in Monoliths the game is perfectly fine. The problem that seems to plague players is zoning in and out of shared social hub towns, and the beginning of the game ..read more

AggroChat #468 – Accessible Design Is Important

Featuring: Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Tamrielo, and Thalen Hey Folks! We are back after taking a break last week due to the limited number of folks available.  This week we start off with a topic that has bounced around a bit on our docket.  Namely, we marvel at just how balanced City of Heroes/City of Villians is and what a pinnacle of system design it really is.  Bel spent a bit of time playing Nightingale now that is available in early access, and talks about the mess of a game that it is.  Finally, we dive into our primary topic this week and talk about the Last Epoch 1 ..read more

Good Morning Folks! Yesterday was the 1.0 launch for Last Epoch and it was a bit of a wild ride. The servers came online at 11 am CST, and the 7.32 GB Steam patch showed up a bit later. Most folks had to exit out of Steam entirely to get it to show up correctly. After loading in I got a weird blank character creator screen and had to crash out to the desktop, but after coming back things seemed normal. That was until we tried to exit the first town. Last Epoch experienced its very own Raubahn Savage moment as folks were stuck trying to load into The Fortress Gardens. Essentially everyone was ..read more

Nightingale Initial Thoughts

Good Morning Folks! Since the Last Epoch servers were down last night in preparations for the 1.0 launch today, and Nightingale opened up for early access I decided to give the game a spin. Right now the game is on an introductory price of $26.99 and I figured since I knew I was going to pick it up eventually, I might as well get in at the cheapest price. I feel like I need to set the stage for this discussion. I’ve played a lot of survival games over the years and most recently have been playing a heck of a lot of Enshrouded. This is going to greatly color my opinion of this game. After spen ..read more

Good Morning Folks! It is feeling like it is time to start putting things to bed in the Path of Exile Affliction league. I’ve been spending most of my time over the last few weeks playing either Enshrouded or Last Epoch, and with that has come less desire to log in and grind. I feel like it was a successful league considering this was the league that broke my favorite build. Throughout the league I wound up creating five viable characters and honestly enjoyed each of them: Boneshatter Juggernaut Lighting Arrow Champion Righteous Fire Chieftain Penance Brand of Dissipation Inquisitor Cold Bla ..read more

Last Epoch 1.0 Primer

Good Morning Folks! I took a bit of a break last week but I am hitting the ground running with a bit of a long topic. On Wednesday Last Epoch is dropping its 1.0 release marking the game officially coming out of early access. There has been an exceptional amount of buzz and hype surrounding the game, and I thought I would take a bit this morning and talk about some of the relevant features of the game. If you are coming from Diablo, this is going to be a bit more detailed than you are used to. If you are coming from Path of Exile, it will be considerably easier for you to build your own build ..read more
