Gear, Blessings & Idols

Learn about the Gear, Gear Progression, Empowered Blessings and Idols for the Echo Warpath Voidknight Build.


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

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
<strong>Normal Blessings</strong>

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.

<strong><strong>Empowered Combat Blessings</strong></strong>

Reaching Empowered Monolith unlocks all the level 100 Timelines and the ability to farm Empowered Blessings. Unlike Normal Blessings, these need to be farmed until you get the desired ones for your build. It is extremely important to get this set up as fast as possible to free up affix slots on your gear. Remember, the more value you get from your Blessings, the easier it is to craft efficient gear!

These are the core Combat Empowered Blessings for this build:

  • If you are lacking Crit Avoidance, start with Grand Survival of Might. This plus a well rolled T5 Critical Strike Avoidance on a ring will be enough to reach the cap.
  • Once you're Crit Capped go for Grand Patience of Herkir. It has an incredible amount of Armour and we get 100% uptime on it. Try to get a high roll on this.
  • Grand Bulwark of the Tundra synergizes well with Grand Patience of Herkir, really pushing our Armour to the next level.
  • Grand Depths of Infinity is the only way to get Void Shred. Since we don't have any Penetration on this build, the Shred we get here is especially valuable.
  • Grand Crash of the Waves can more than double our chance to Stun enemies. Once we get our crit capped most enemies that we hit are completely unable to attack.
<strong>Empowered </strong><span><strong style="font-weight: bold;">Drop Rate Blessings</strong></span>

These Empowered Blessings are flexible and depend on your current needs and goals.

These are valuable Empowered Drop Rate Blessings for this build:

  • Grand Pride of Rebellion helps us find the best Idols for our build. If you're targeting Darkstride or Oceareon you can swap this out for Grand Winds of Fortune. All the other Uniques in this build are target farmable and do not benefit from this Blessing.
  • The most important Affix on this entire build is All Resistances While Channelling. It only exists on Relics, making Grand Slumber of Morditas a valuable blessing when trying to upgrade the affix to Exalted.
  • Grand Favor of the Wengari can help you find some Two Handed Axes with Melee Critical Strike Chance. You need these to make a Legendary Apathy's Maw.
  • Grand Hope of the Beginning and Grand Comfort of the End provide only minor benefits. If you feel like you need more Shards pick these up. Otherwise they can be skipped.

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.
