Welcome to the Disintegrate Runemaster Build Guide. Unleash beams of pure Fire energy to decimate your enemies! The continuous blast of Disintegrate melts away any and all enemies in vicinity.

This Runemaster build takes advantage of Glyph of Dominion to get powerful Damage and ward buffs.

This Movement Skill also grants great defensive buffs on use.

You need Ignivar's Head and Gambler's Fallacy to play this build, as these Uniques allow you to scale Spell Crit for Damage.

The build can also take advantage of many other Uniques. Peak of the Mountain grants massive Crit Chance, scaling up Damage considerably. Foot of the Mountain provides valuable stats and mana cost reduction, while Ravenous Void brings the tankiness to another level.

Overall the Disintegrate Runemaster is a great build suited for all the content in the game, even in Hardcore. If you are looking for a fun caster with a channeled playstyle, this build is perfect for you!

Skill Usage/Rotation

  • Get the Comet Rush Node for Teleport while mapping for the Cooldown it provides.
  • Use Teleport to leave dangerous enemies behind and traverse terrain gaps.

Gearing in Last Epoch revolves around finding Items and then using the powerful Crafting System to enhance them. As long as an Item has Forging Potential left, players can upgrade or modify their Affixes up to Tier 5. However, the powerful Exalted Tier Affixes are drop only and can't be modified by players.

Using the correct Item Bases allows you to make use of their amazing Implicits, this is fundamental for gearing efficiently. Combine Implicits, Passives, Idols and Blessings to cap your Resistances and other defensive layers, while fitting as much Health related Affixes or Endurance Threshold into your gear as possible. Plan ahead for your next upgrades and consider the final Empowered Blessings of your build while gearing. Finish up by farming Uniques with Legendary Potential and Sealing Affixes into Exalted Items to unleash all of your build's power!

Here are the Stat Goals for this build:

  • Capped Resistances
  • Capped Critical Strike Avoidance
  • Capped Endurance
  • 2500 - 3500+ Health
  • 50%+ Armor
  • 300+ Mana
  • 70+ Intelligence
  • 2000 - 4000+ Ward (while in combat)
  • 40% - 70%+ Movement Speed
  • 1500%+ Spell Critical Strike Chance (with Gambler's Fallacy)

Completing a Timeline in the Monolith of Fate lets you choose one of several randomized Blessings from its unique pool. Their benefits are permanent and persist even outside of the Monolith of Fate.

The sooner you reach Empowered Monolith, the faster you can start farming your desired Blessings!

End Game Blessings
Normal Blessings
Empowered Combat Blessings
Empowered Drop Rate Blessings

Normal Blessings are not important as they are eventually replaced by Empowered Blessings. However they can still be a great source of Resistances, Critical Strike Avoidance or Life Leech for your build early on.

Pick up these Normal Blessings on your way to Empowered:

  • Echo of Solarum
  • Hunger of the Void
  • Survival of Might
  • Persistance of Will
  • Protection of Heorot

Idols grant your character bonuses when equipped in the dedicated Idol Container. Unlock all the slots of your Idol Container by completing the Campaign and some of its Side Quests. Remember that some Idols are Class specific and you won't be able to equip them with other non-compatible Classes.

These are the Idols recommended for this build:

  • Find one Huge Arcane Idol with Critical Strike Chance Prefix and Spell Damage Leeched While Channelling Suffix. This Idol is important for you to have enough Leech to sustain.
  • You also want 6 Stout Lagonian Idols with %Health Prefix. Suffixes can be either Health or Resistances, depending on your needs.
  • Finish up the setup with Resistance related Idols. You might also need extra Mana out of your Idols early on, so keep an eye out for anything useful.

Build Scaling

This build uses Disintegrate to deal Fire Damage over Time to enemies, but keep in mind it does not "hit" enemies in a traditional sense. Knowing this, it cannot apply any "on hit" effects or ailments. The build also has great survivability thanks to its multiple defensive layers and the Unique Items it can take advantage of.

  • Adaptive Spell Damage: You want to get as much Flat Damage as possible. The implicit on your Wand and Spell Damage While Channelling on Body Armor provides a lot of it.
  • Intelligence: Disintegrate gains 4% Damage per point or Intelligence. It also provides %Spell Critical Chance thanks to Calculated Destruction. Additionally it grants 4% Ward Retention per point, which adds a nice defensive layer for the build.
  • Spell Critical Strike Chance: Thanks to Ignivar's Head, scaling Crit Chance provides a huge Damage multiplier. Gambler's Fallacy grants a massive amount of flat Crit, allowing you to reach as high as 2000%+ Spell Crit. Try to get as much Spell Critical Strike Chance and Increased Spell Crit (Doubled If You Have Over 300 Max Mana) as possible on your gear.
  • Elemental Damage Over Time: This powerful Prefix has some of the highest numerical values of any offensive Affix in the game. This is the main source of Increased Damage for the build.
  • Fire Penetration:  Causes enemies to take extra Fire Damage. Lavamancer grants a good amount of it.
  • Level of Disintegrate: Get this Prefix on your Relic to invest more Points into its Skill Tree.

Last Epoch has multiple end game activities with completely different roles and rewards. All the builds in Maxroll.gg have been tested and are designed to complete all available content. However, not all builds excel at doing the same activities. Make sure you are familiar with the end game strengths and weaknesses of your character.

Endless Arena

The Monolith of Fate is the main end game system. Most of your character gear upgrades are found here. Once you get all of your desired Empowered Blessings, you can start pushing Corruption to increase your chances at finding incredible Exalted Items. The Monolith of Fate rewards speedy builds that are able to target farm Echo Reward Nodes or stack Timeline Stability as fast as possible.

This Sorcerer is a great Monolith of Fate farmer. It's very safe and has great range. While it's not the fastest build for rushing objectives, it's a balanced setup that can do it all.

Monolith Goals

Monolith Timelines

Your goals in the Monolith of Fate will differ greatly depending on what build you play and what stage your character progression is at. Here are the objectives you should aim at when playing this build:

  1. Reach Empowered Monolith as fast as possible.
  2. Farm your Combat Empowered Blessings. Prioritize gaining Timeline Stability and fight the Timeline Bosses as often as possible. Once you are done with one Timeline, move to the next one. Reach 200 Corruption to farm your desired Blessings faster, as it unlocks a 5th option to choose from after you defeat a Timeline Boss. Defeat the Shade of Orobyss to gain and transfer Corruption between Timelines.
  3. Farm your first Drop Rate Empowered Blessing in The Stolen Lance Empowered Monolith Timeline.
  4. Finish up the rest of your Drop Rate Empowered Blessings.
  5. Farm for key Uniques.
  6. As you farm for Uniques, stack Corruption as high as your gear can handle. The higher Corruption you do, the more Items you find. Get your character ready for the other end game activities.

Monolith Modifiers

Every time you choose an Echo a Modifier comes attached with it, adding difficulty and changing how enemies behave. These Modifiers stay active for a maximum of 6 Echoes and stack with each other. Some Modifiers can handicap your build immensely while others can almost be ignored. Monolith Modifiers scale with Corruption and increase the Item Rarity of Echoes. Ideally you want to do the hardest content possible, without delaying your clear times. Keep up Item Rarity as high as you can without it slowing you down.

Easy Modifiers

  • Enemy Critical Strike Chance (Once you have 100% Critical Strike Avoidance).
  • Enemy Critical Strike Avoidance.
  • Enemy chance to receive a Glancing Blow.
  • Enemy chance to Dodge.
  • Enemies heal if they have not been damaged recently.
  • Rare enemies have high speed and crit chance until approached.
  • Rare enemies regenerate health.

Avoid these Modifiers

  • High health enemies take less damage.
  • High health enemies deal increased damage.
  • Increased enemy Movement Speed.
  • While bossing: enemies Enrage at half health and enemies gain Frenzy and Haste when hit.

Loot Filter

Loot Filters are critical in Last Epoch. Making sure you highlight all the related valuable Item Bases, Affixes, Uniques and Idols is crucial to ensure your character's progression. As your gear gets better, remember to hide the rules that are no longer useful to avoid screen clutter.

Here is the Endgame Loot Filter for this build:
