Echo Warpath Void Knight Guide

Last Updated: September 30th 2023

Welcome to the Echo Warpath Void Knight Guide. If you enjoy the 'Spin 2 Win' playstyle then look no further. This build provides high damage and excellent move speed, making it a great farming/clear build. It is new player friendly with an entry level skill requirement, while also being disability friendly with very low button usage. It's also SSF friendly with no gear required to run the build, and the best uniques for the build are almost completely target farmable through bosses. This build is also capable in Arena, skilled players can take it into the high hundreds of waves.

Clear speed and efficiency for this build is incredible, with more than 100% movement speed and Echo Knight allowing the player to quickly run to an objective while Echoes kill everything along the way, making this one of the best clearing and farm builds. Bossing is also very good thanks to Maw of the Deep and a legendary Apathy's Maw with Melee Critical Strike Chance letting us Crit Cap and take full advantage of Void Corruption. The build's biggest weakness is tankiness, with half of it's EHP cut in 0.9. However, All Resistances While Channelling, World Eater, Wings of Argentus, and Grand Patience of Herkir allow it to stay viable.

Warpath is the centerpiece that the build revolves around. We channel it nearly 100% of the time, creating echoes that copy our damage through Echo Knight and applying Time Rot that will maximize the damage from our hits through Maw of the Deep.

Alternative Skills & Tips


Passives provide powerful effects that dictate the playstyle of a Class and its Masteries. Remember that you can allocate Passives on the first half of all Masteries regardless of the one you chose.

  1. Armour Clad grants Damage Reduction and is crucial for any Sentinel's survivability.
  2. Juggernaut, Abyssal Endurance, Defiance and Holy Symbol provide tons of Resistances. Use these to shore up any deficiencies you might have. If you have your resistances covered and want to spend elsewhere, Doom Knight is a good all around option.
  3. Echoing Strikes, Time Legion and Avatar of Regret are necessary for maximum Echo uptime.
  4. World Eater has enough leech to single handedly provide us with enough sustain.
  5. Singular Purpose is a huge damage buff for only 4 points with no downside to this build.
  6. Eternal Form is a massive increase to our health and therefore our survivability.
  7. Void Corruption is an easy source of Critical Strike Multiplier for almost no investment.

This may be the easiest build to play in the game, with a 2 button rotation creating nearly optimal gameplay, and a slightly more complex rotation reaching 100% optimal.

Skill Usage/Rotation


  • Rush to the objective channeling Warpath the entire way. Only stop channeling to pick up loot, and don't do so unless you're sure there are no enemies around. It is also possible to pick up loot while channeling but may take some getting used to.
  • Use Anomaly on rares and objective mini bosses to kill them quicker.
  • Tankier enemies should also be 'orbited' by circling around the fringe of their hitbox, just enough so that Warpath is connecting but not so much that they can easily hit you.


  • Before engaging the boss cap your Sigils Of Hope stacks and Volatile Reversal to get mana back
  • Orbit the boss to get as many echoes hitting it as possible
  • Use Anomaly when you have several echoes on the boss at the same time.
  • Avoid telegraphs by changing direction when necessary, or moving out and quickly moving back in as soon as possible.
  • Don't stop channeling Warpath until the boss is dead. If your Sigils Of Hope stacks fall off and you can find a safe spot where you won't get hit then you can recast them, but don't prioritize them over staying safe. Remember: you're much squishier when you aren't channeling Warpath!

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 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 - 4000+ Health
  • 50% - 65% Armour Mitigation
  • 30+ Strength
  • 150%+ Chance to Shred Armour
  • 300%+ Critical Strike Multiplier
  • 400% - 600%+ Increased Damage
  • 70-100%+ Movement Speed (Not Including Haste)

Gear Progression

Starting Gear
Advanced Gear
End Game Gear
BIS Gear

Milestone 1
Aim for good Item Bases with two valuable T5 Affixes. The defensive rolls on T5 Suffixes are very important at this stage as they can easily cap all your Resistances when combined with Item Implicits, Idols, Blessings or Passives. Get a good Hollow Blade as soon as possible.

Milestone 2
Make sure your Critical Strike Avoidance is capped. Remember that Woven Flesh is always an option early on. It can be farmed by killing the Abomination in the Fall of the Outcast Monolith Timeline.

Milestone 3
Try to get a T5 All Resistances While Channelling on your Relic to make capping resistances easier and open up some Suffixes. Shift points into Passives for resistances or use Idols as needed.

Starting Gear Planner

Milestone 4
Fit as much Health into your gear as possible. Hybrid Health and Health are extremely valuable, but can be hard to find early on. Use regular flat Health until you find them. Get some Armor Shred chance to significantly boost your damage. Weapon, Gloves, Amulet and Idols can provide this. Siphon of Anguish is easily farmable from Shade of Orobyss and provides benefits to defense, sustain, movement speed and damage. If you find a Quicksilver Coil it will significantly increase your mapping speed through the haste buff.

Milestone 5
While you look for this basic set of gear, start farming your Empowered Blessings and look for any Idols that can help you cap all your Resistances momentarily or increase your Damage output. Also be on the lookout for Grand Solar Idols with Increased Warpath Area and either Chance To Shred Armor on Hit, Melee Void Damage, or Armor.

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.

Empowered Blessings are a fundamental part of all builds, so getting the correct ones for each is key.

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:

  • Depths of Infinity
  • Memory of Light
  • Whisper of Orobyss
  • Bastion of Divinity
  • Survival of Might
  • Hunger of Dragons
  • Persistance of Will
  • Protection of Heorot
  • Heart of Ice
  • Bulwark of the Tundra
  • Embers of Immortality
  • Patience of Herkir

Note: Don't target farm Normal Blessings. Get to Empowered Monolith as fast as you can.

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:

  • We want at least 3 Grand Solar Idols with Increased Warpath Area to maintain consistent damage on enemies while avoiding telegraphed attacks. The Suffix can be Chance To Shred Armor on Hit, Melee Void Damage or Armor depending on your needs.
  • Stout Lagonian Idols with well rolled Health and Health will make a big difference on your health pool.
  • Any additional space can be filled with Resistances, Health, Armour and Increased Stun Chance. Consider having at least one Chance To Slow With Void Skills for Arena to account for speed scaling at high waves.

Build Scaling

This build is hit based and scales 100% Void damage, making stat choices easy. It also has good survivability thanks to the multiple defensive layers it can take advantage of.

  • Melee Void Damage: While taking this stat would be good for any Void based Hit build, it's doubly valuable for this one. Thanks to Darkstride, every point of Added Melee Void Damage also increases our Movement Speed.
  • Critical Strike Chance: This stat is only a priority after we get Melee Critical Strike Chance on our Apathy's Maw. With capped Crit Chance we can triple our damage.
  • Critical Multiplier: We get most of this from Void Corruption which only costs one passive point. Adding Critical Strike Multiplier to our Relic and Amulet is also a nice damage boost.
  • Melee Attack Speed: Unfortunately we don't have any room room for this on our gear, but the passives Blademaster and Time Legion make up for it. Echoes also benefit from Attack Speed so these passives really ramp up our damage.
  • Strength: Warpath gains 4% Damage per point of Strength. Additionally it grants 4% Armour per point, which adds a nice defensive layer for the build.
  • Sigils Of Hope: They grant Increased Damage and Ignite Chance with this setup; which is converted to Time Rot Chance for Warpath.
  • % Increased Damage: Anything that increases Void Damage is welcomed.
  • Chance To Shred Armour on Hit: Each stack of this Ailment reduces enemy Armour by 100 for 4 seconds and stacks infinitely. Enemies have 0 Armour by default and it can go into the negatives. At -1000 Armour a target takes 16.6% increased Void Damage, while at -4000 Armour it takes 40.1%. With the amount of hits the build has, the stacks ramp up quickly.
  • Level of Anomaly: Get this Prefix on your Helmet to get additional buffs from its Skill Tree and Increased Void Damage.
  • Grand Depths of Infinity: Since the build attacks so fast and has so many hits, it is extremely easy to apply 10 stacks of Void Resistance Shred to your targets. 10 stacks increases the Damage enemies take by 50% (20% on Bosses). This Blessing plays a big part on your Damage output, so make sure you roll it nicely (45%+).

Last Epoch has multiple end game activities with completely different roles and rewards. All the builds in 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 Void Knight is an incredible Monolith of Fate farmer. It's has great AoE and single target DPS to go along with very high Movement Speed, making it an amazing setup for farming content in high Corruption.

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. Finish up the rest of your Drop Rate Empowered Blessings.
  4. Farm for key Uniques.
  5. 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

  • Enemies heal if they have not been damaged recently.
  • Enemy Critical Strike Chance (Once you have 100% Critical Strike Avoidance).
  • Rare enemies have high speed and crit chance until approached.
  • Rare enemies regenerate health.
  • Increased enemy Movement Speed.

Avoid these Modifiers

  • Enemy Critical Strike Avoidance.
  • High health enemies take less damage.
  • High health enemies deal increased damage.
  • Enemy chance to Dodge.
  • While bossing: enemies Enrage at half health and enemies gain Frenzy and Haste when hit.
  • Enemy chance to receive a Glancing Blow.

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:

This Void Knight embodies the "Spin 2 Win" fantasy that so many ARPG fans love. It is one of the easiest builds to play while also being very powerful and competitive. The build is good at all content but really shines in the Monolith of Fate and Arena due to its high Movement Speed, great AoE, survivability and single target DPS.

  • Spinning = Winning.
  • One of the easiest builds to play thanks to a light rotation which also makes it disability friendly.
  • High Movement Speed that scales with Added Melee Void Damage thanks to Darkstride makes this a great endgame Mapper.
  • Echoes let you clear packs while staying mobile, making this build great for both Mapping and Arena.
  • Take advantage of Warpath's Channel and Movement tags to keep 100% uptime on Wings of Argentus, All Resistances While Channelling and Grand Patience of Herkir
  • A Legendary Apathy's Maw with Melee Critical Strike Chance takes this build to the next level.
