Last Updated: July 6th 2024

Share on Social

The Last Epoch Team has revealed updates coming in the 1.1 patch notes! There is an absolute massive amount of updates and changes to the game as it heads into Cycle 2 next Tuesday, July 9th.

Key Takeaways

  • Cycle 1.1 - The new Cycle starts on July 9th at 11:00 am CT - all 1.0 Cycle characters and their shared stashes are moved to Legacy as remove-only stashes.
  • Evade - A new special "dodge-roll" ability available to all classes from level 1, with two charges and a short cooldown. Abilities, Affixes, Blessings, and Uniques can modify it. It doesn't grant immunity and can't be unequipped or swapped. 
  • Pinnacle Boss - A tough new boss is being added to the game, Abberoth. Access to the Pinnacle Boss is initially limited to Online Cycle characters, becoming available to all modes the next business day after the first defeat or a week after release, and requires slaying all 10 Harbingers and spending 1 Eye to challenge.
  • Harbingers - Each of the 10 Monolith Timelines has a Harbinger that spawns upon defeating the Timeline Boss. The Harbinger absorbs abilities from the Timeline Boss and drops Harbinger Eyes, which are keys to the Pinnacle Boss. The first is available upon finishing the final Level 90 Timeline, with subsequent Harbingers found in Empowered Timelines at higher Corruption levels.
  • Forgotten Knights Faction - A new Endgame Faction, unlocked after killing your first Harbinger. Helps track Harbinger progress, and also offers various bonuses and rewards. 
  • Boss Ward and Defenses - Dynamic Damage Reduction has been removed, and replaced by Boss Ward. Bosses now have Ward breakpoints instead of dynamic damage reduction, gaining Ward based on maximum health at each breakpoint, with Ward decaying over time. 
  • Player Ward Decay Changes - The Ward Decay formula is being reworked to give a harsher penalty to builds reaching 10,000+ Ward while helping out the lower end for builds below 4,000 Ward. This overall helps to reduce outliers in builds that favor Ward, and gives some support to hybrid builds.
  • Glyph of Envy - A new crafting material that functions as a catch-up mechanic for alt characters - modifies an item unpredictably, and siphons stability to the Timeline where the player last completed an Echo. 
  • Item Factions - Item Factions now go to Rank 12. Merchant's Guild and Circle of Fortune have both been rebalanced to have smoother progression.
  • Merchant's Guild and the Bazaar -  Improvements are planned to come to the Bazaar search functionality later in Patch 1.1.
  • Circle of Fortune - Circle of Fortune now has ways to help farm Boss-specific loot, and Experimental Items. The prophecy duplication Rank Reward has been reworked to act as if the prophecy triggers twice, instead of creating an exact duplicate of the reward.
  • Experience Changes - Experience requirements for levels 98-100 have increased by 20, 40, and 60% respectively.  XP tome scaling begins decreasing at level 60 and above. Tomes from farther echoes now offer up to 7 tomes, and XP tome reward rates have decreased by 29-42%
  • Loot Filter Improvements - New options for adding multiple affix conditions per rule, filtering for Unique items by Legendary Potential or Weaver's Will. Rules are now numbered top to bottom, the lower the number, the higher the priority of the rule. 
  • Gaze of Orobyss Rework and Corruption Pushing - Gaze of Orobyss now grants 12 Corruption per Gaze, instead of variable amounts. Only 4 Gaze can be consumed at once, the rest carry over to the next Echo Web. Only 1 Gaze is lost upon death to a Shade or Orobyss, instead of All. Guests in Multiplayer Parties now gain Gaze of Orobyss when offered a Blessing upon Timeline Boss Defeat. 
  • Blessing Stash and Swapping - All Blessings discovered upon the defeat of a Timeline Boss are now saved and stashed. You can swap between these for a small Gold fee. Alts can also access all saved Blessings at their Minimum roll.
  • Competitive Ladders - A new Level Ladder has been added to keep track of the Race to Level 100 at the start of a new Cycle. Timestamps have been added to the Arena Ladder to show when a push was completed.
  • Channeling Skills Changes - Channeling Skills no longer block Mana Regeneration, Channeling Skills have had their Mana costs adjusted to compensate for this.
  • General Skill Changes - Many Skills have had balance adjustments, Disintegrate, Shield Bash, and Avalanche have had substantial changes. 
  • Acolyte Skills Changes - Many of the overperforming Skills have been tuned down a bit to bring certain Warlock builds more in line with others. Ghostflame now offers less damage reduction, Dodge rating, and has a higher mana cost. The interaction where Profane Veil consumes the Bone Prison from Bone Curse is removed. Minions have received a base HP buff per Intelligence (+8 per, from +5 per). Ghostflame and Profane Veil are seeing the most significant adjustments, though other skills have received tuning and bug fixes. 
  • Mage Skill Changes - Mage is seeing many Skill adjustments to mana costs, mechanics, and effectiveness. Disintegrate is receiving new nodes and adjustments to help compensate for a fix to the unintended use of Ignivar's Head + Gambler's Fallacy. The Frost Claw node "Gift of Winter" now only gains mana on direct casts, and the "Macuahuitl" node now consumes 80% of Frost Claw's mana when cast this way. Firebrand, Frost Claw, and Shatter Strike are receiving the most changes, but many Mage skills have been adjusted to include more Quality of Life and tuning. 
  • Primalist Skill Changes - Avalanche is receiving many changes to how it functions, with new paths in the Skill Passive Tree, and substantial tuning on numbers. Maelstrom's "Sleet Footed" node now grants 3% increased Dodge rating per point, from 12 added Dodge per point. Serpent Strike's "Slither" node now gives a buff that grants more Dodge rating, with a cap based on points allocated.  Maelstrom, Serpent Strike, Summon Storm Totem, Summon Thorn Totem, Swarmblade Form, and Warcry received the most changes, though other skills have also received tuning and bug fixes. 
  • Rogue Skill Changes - There are many quality of life, tuning, and bug fixes to Rogue Skills. Aerial Assault, Cinder Strike, Dancing Strikes, Detonating Arrow, Explosive Trap, Flurry, and Multishot have received the most changes, though many other Skills have been changed in impactful ways. 
  • Sentinel Skill Changes - Sentinel is seeing many bug fixes to skills such as Anomally, Erasing Strike, Healing Hands, and Shield Rush. Shield Bash is receiving a decent-sized overhaul to help focus a bit more on its Offensive options. Forged Weapons are receiving some base stat changes to lower their early-game strength but add more end-game scaling. Rive's "Flame Drinker's Blade" node now caps at 20, instead of unlimited. Forge Strike, Healing Hands, and Judgement are also receiving a lot of changes, but many other skills are also receiving adjustments. 
  • Warlock Passives - Several Warlock Passives have seen adjustments to reduce the effectiveness of their damage output, Ward generation, Damage mitigation, and Ailment scaling. 
  • Spellblade Passives - Spellblade is receiving many substantial changes to its passive tree - including, but not limited to many Passives receiving threshold bonuses, instances of increased damage being changed to multiplicative, and some reductions in Ward generation
  • Runemaster Passives - Runemaster sees several adjustments to Ward gain, critical strike bonuses, and cooldown recovery - most receiving reductions in effectiveness or having their thresholds and cooldowns modified.
  • Sorcerer Passives - Sorcerer is receiving substantial changes to its Passive tree, focusing on aspects relating to the mana cost of abilities, Ward gain, damage bonuses, and mana efficiency. Some threshold bonuses have been introduced, and some skill effects have been replaced. 
  • Beastmaster Passives - Porcine Constituion has been moved beyond the Mastery Lock, removing the "Beast Master Tax" option from other Primalist Masteries. Minor changes relating to Aspect of the Boar. 
  • Shaman Passives - The Shaman Passive Tree received several major changes. Many passives now also grant their benefits to minions. Some passives have new threshold bonuses that affect Endurance, Health and Mana Regeneration, and Damage Penetration. Some nodes have been moved or renamed, and altered to have more synergies within the class. 
  • Blade Dancer Passives - Death's Door now grants Critical Strike Multiplier instead of Added Critical Strike Chance. Skiasynthesis now has a threshold bonus giving 50% More Damage to Shadow Daggers against Rares and Bosses. 
  • Falconer Passives - Finesse Them’s threshold bonus grants 1% minion critical strike multiplier per 3% critical strike avoidance (from 2% per 3%)
  • Marksman Passives - Marksman is receiving many changes to damage and buffs, with some sources of increased damage being changed to multiplicative. Many passives now have new threshold bonuses. Many effects have been adjusted, including those relating to Elemental Arrows. 
  • Sentinel Passive Changes - Time and Faith now grants 2% of missing health restored per point (from 5 health per point) when you directly use Rive, Vengeance, Smite, or Multistrike.
  • Forge Guard Passive Changes - Forge Guard received a substantial amount of Passive changes. Several passives now have threshold bonuses offering stats such as increased Critical Strike Multiplier and Health Regeneration. Many rebalances to Damage and Armor mechanics in the Forge Guard tree. Some passives have had their effects extended to Minions. Some Passives such as Hammer and Anvil, Champion of the Forge, and Master of Arms have been reworked to give new benefits. 
  • Void Knight Passives - The Mastery bonus now scales, granting 1% more melee void damage per 3 vitality, replacing the previous flat 75% increased melee void damage. Eternal Form now includes a threshold bonus that grants 2 health per vitality.
  • Itemization Changes - Some changes to what gear slot certain Affixes can appear on, some new Affixes. Boots, Wands, and Staves have had changes to their implicits, with Boots seeing some adjustments to implicit movespeed, and Wands and Staves receiving a roll range on their Reduced Mana Cost stats. Many defense-related Affixes and Added Damage Affixes have had their roll ranges buffed, particularly at T6+.
  • Unique Items - 30 new Uniques have been introduced, most are random drops, but some are also specific to certain Boss Loot Tables. Some old Uniques have also been rebalanced to reflect balance and mechanical changes in Patch 1.1. 
  • And Much More - There have been many bug fixes, improvements to VFX, SFX, and performance, enemy rebalancing, new music, and polished animations.

Patch 1.1: Harbingers of Ruin launches  July 9, 2024 11:00 AM (CDT)!

Last Epoch Patch 1.1 Overview by Game Director, Judd Cobler

Greetings Travelers, it’s Patch Notes Day!

The team here is incredibly excited to bring this patch to the community, and we have a ton of awesome features to share. Over the last few weeks, you have seen the “What’s New” and “Quality of Life” posts, as well as a smattering of announcements including our Lore Hunt Event, and Twitch Drops 27.

Heading into the weekend, we are excited to share the official patch notes for Patch 1.1 - Harbingers of Ruin. These Patch Notes are massive, so we suggest taking a look at the Developer Overview Video from Game Director Judd.

To prepare the servers for Harbingers of Ruin on July 9th, we will be shutting down our servers 24 hours before the patch, starting:  July 8, 2024 11:00 AM (CDT).

With that, let’s get to the Patch Notes!


The Harbingers of Ruin Cycle begins July 9th at 11:00am CT! 1.0 represented our first new Cycle of play, and now 1.1 is a brand new one.

  • All new characters can be created in Cycle or Legacy realms
  • All 1.0 Cycle characters are now moved to Legacy
  • Those characters stashes are also now moved to Legacy, and shared among similar game modes as usual
    • Shared stash data includes items, resonances, gold, crafting materials, and faction progress
  • Each stash from the previous cycle is now available as a remove-only stash in the appropriate Legacy stash. You may remove any of these items on any Legacy character with the same optional challenge settings and use them as normal.
    • Solo Character Found characters who abandon the challenge will get their SCF stash as a remove-only stash


Evade is an additional special ability available to all classes, and not on the action bar. Check out our What’s New blog post for more details on our design goals for Evade.

  • Evade works similar to movement abilities but:
    • Is not a traversal skill.
    • Is available from level 1, and cannot be unequipped or swapped with other player skills.
    • While evading, players can still take damage (no immunity frames).
  • Comes with 2 charges, and a short cooldown.
  • Evade gains cooldown recovery speed per character level
  • Can be modified by abilities, affixes, and blessings.
  • Can be modified drastically by Uniques.
  • Added evade animations for all classes and transformations

Harbingers of Ruin

Harbingers are a new endgame system, leading to the Pinnacle Boss. Please see our What’s New blog post for an overview on this new system and faction.

Pinnacle Boss

  • Access to the Pinnacle Boss is initially disabled.
    • Only Online Cycle characters will have access to the Pinnacle Boss upon release.
    • It will become available to all modes (Offline and Legacy) the next business day after someone defeats the Pinnacle Boss, or a week after release. Whichever comes first.
  • You must slay all 10 Harbingers to gain the ability to challenge the Pinnacle Boss.
  • After completing the Harbingers questline, you may spend 1 Eye to challenge the Pinnacle Boss.


  • Each of the 10 Monolith Timelines has an associated Harbinger, spawned on defeat of the Timeline Boss.
    • Harbingers absorb abilities from the Timeline Boss that spawns them.
  • The first Harbinger is unlocked after you kill the Timeline Boss in the final level 90 Normal Monolith Timeline.
    • Harbinger fights can then be toggled on/off from the Boss Echo rewards panel
  • Subsequent Harbingers are encountered by killing bosses in Empowered Monolith Timelines, at increasingly higher Corruption levels.
    • Once a Harbinger has been defeated, it will continue to spawn in that same Empowered Timeline (if toggled on)
  • Defeated Harbingers drop Harbinger Eyes. These items act as keys to access the Pinnacle Boss.
    • Harbingers are guaranteed to drop an eye on first kill, with a chance to drop after that.
    • Killing your first Harbinger now also unlocks Empowered Timelines
      • Because of this, Alt characters can now get Empowered Timelines unlocked a bit earlier (after conquering the first level 90 Timeline instead of the third). Example:
        • 1st Character - Conquers the three required Level 90 Timelines, unlocks Empowered Monoliths. Can now go conquer Empowered Timelines for Harbingers.
        • Alt Character - Conquers 1 Level 90 Normal Timeline, Empowered Monoliths unlock, can now go conquer Empowered Timelines for Harbingers.

Forgotten Knights Faction

  • The Forgotten Knights Faction tracks your Harbinger progress. There’s also a Harbinger quest line.
    • This faction is separate from the existing Item Factions.
    • The Forgotten Knights is an Endgame Faction unlocked after you kill your first Harbinger.
    • Like other factions, Forgotten Knights progress is shared among characters sharing a stash
    • Faction progress is only advanced by the requirements of killing new Harbingers, in new Timelines, at the set level of Corruption
  • Ranks in the Forgotten Knights Faction are unlocked with each additional Harbinger kill:
    1. +40% chance for Nemesis items to include an Egg of the Forgotten
    2. +10% chance for doubled Stability gain
    3. Double Harbinger Needle drop chance
    4. +6 Maximum Forging Potential gained by Empowering a Nemesis
    5. +20% additional Glyph of Envy drop chance from Harbingers
    6. The tiers of sealed affixes added by Empowering a Nemesis are 15% higher on average
    7. +1 Corruption gain per Gaze of Orobyss
    8. Blessings roll their value twice and pick the highest roll
    9. Double chance for Harbingers to drop their specific Uniques
    10. Slaying a Harbinger grants 1 additional Gaze of Orobyss
  • Shattered Road zone added, home of the Forgotten Knights Faction.

Party Play

  • Players must have unlocked the level 90 Timelines in order to be able to join the Forgotten Knights Faction. This means that a player must be able to start an Echo by themselves in one of the level 90 Timelines.
  • As a guest, defeated Harbingers will only progress the Forgotten Knights Faction and drop guaranteed Eyes as long as the difficulty and Timeline requirements are met. These can be viewed in the Factions panel.


The Nemesis system introduces new random encounters that can spawn throughout the Campaign, Monolith, and Dungeons. Check out our What’s New blog post for a detailed write up on the Nemesis system.

  • They first appear as a floating pile of armor around the body of a powerful warrior that’s been slain by a Harbinger
    • Clicking on the Nemesis brings up a menu where you can see four items from the slain warrior
    • These items are always Rare, Exalted, or Unique, with bonus chances of being the latter two. They can’t be idols.
      • For characters above level 50, at least one item will always be a Unique
      • Nemesis type and stats are determined by zone spawned in
      • Nemesis loot rolled is determined by character level
    • You have three options in that menu
      • Banishing the Nemesis, losing access to the items.
      • Challenging it, causing you to fight it and gain the items at the end of the fight.
      • Empowering it, causing you to fight it, but allowing it to escape through a time rift at the end of the fight.
  • If you Empower a Nemesis, your next Nemesis encounter will feature a time rift instead of the warrior’s body and the items offered will be the same ones as before, but upgraded.
    • Rare and Exalted items can have their affixes upgraded up to Tier 7 and also increase their Forging Potential to beyond the normal limit.
      • They can also gain sealed affixes, up to T7. Exalted sealed affixes were previously unattainable (aside from Exalted experimental affixes when using a Rune of Research on an existing Exalted experimental affix).
    • Unique items have a chance of gaining Legendary Potential, or becoming a Legendary item, with random affixes added to them.
  • You can Empower a Nemesis up to two times, before you must challenge it.
  • After Banishing or Challenging a Nemesis your next encounter will have a fresh set of items.
    • These items will not change once they’ve been Empowered once.
  • Whenever you defeat a Nemesis, regardless of whether you Challenged or Empowered it, it will also drop a pile of crafting materials. It will not drop regular loot to avoid confusion with the four items offered.
  • At high levels, Nemeses may carry a special item as one of their rewards, The Egg of the Forgotten. This item can be replaced with one of your Uniques that lacks Legendary Potential or Weaver’s Will, allowing you to upgrade that Unique by the Empowering the Nemesis.
    • The chance of this item appearing scales from 0% below level 60, then 20% at level 60, up to 60% at level 100.
      • Rank 1 of the new Forgotten Knights Faction provides an additional +40% chance for the Egg of the Forgotten to spawn.
    • If you do not replace the Egg, it will randomly transform into a different Unique.

Party Play

  • Players can individually interact with a Nemesis. The Nemesis remains after defeat, allowing each player to interact with it one at a time. Each player maintains their own current Nemesis Empower progression, but will still fight each Nemesis as a group.

Upgradable Nemesis Weapons

  • Nemeses can also drop Vengeful weapons that seek out the destruction of the Harbingers that killed them
  • Killing a Harbinger while having one of these weapons equipped upgrades it to an “Avenged” version with improved stats
  • There are Nemesis weapons for every weapon and off-hand type

Gameplay and Mechanics

Note: On first launch after updating to 1.1, all keybinds will be reset to default. This only happens once, further launches should keep any custom keybind changes.

Boss Defenses

Boss Ward

  • Bosses no longer have a variable amount of damage reduction based on how quickly they have been taking damage. Instead bosses have a number of ward breakpoints.
    • When their health is reduced to a breakpoint, they gain ward based on their maximum health. Any extra damage beyond the breakpoint passes through to the ward they gain.
    • Their ward decays over time, but with a different formula to player ward. Instead of the decay scaling with the amount of ward, it scales with how much time has passed since the boss gained it.
    • More significant bosses, such as Chapter Bosses, Timeline Bosses, and Dungeon Bosses, have more breakpoints. Most other bosses have two breakpoints.

Other Boss Changes

  • Bosses have 50% more effective health against stun and freeze
    • Added modifiers for effective boss health against stun and freeze and changed freeze chance to take ward into account.

Ward Decay

Changed the player ward decay formula:


0.4 x current ward / (1 + 0.5 x ward retention)


(0.2 x current ward + 0.00005 x (current ward^2)) / (1 + 0.5 x ward retention)

More details on the ward balancing process in our Quality of Life & More post

Glyph of Envy

  • Added a new crafting item, Glyph of Envy.
    • Glyph of Envy destabilizes an item, unpredictably changing all properties other than the affix being upgraded. This stability is siphoned to the most recent Monolith Timeline you entered, greatly increasing its stability.
    • The Forging Potential of the item is not changed beyond the normal reduction, and the changes cannot result in affixes above tier 5. Existing sealed affixes cannot be changed. Grants far more stability if you have never completed the Timeline before.
    • As it adds much more stability to Timelines that you have not yet completed, it’s particularly useful for going through Non-Empowered Timelines quickly on alt characters.
    • Which Timeline will gain stability is indicated on the Forge button before you use the glyph.
    • The glyph cannot be used by characters that have never started a Monolith Echo.
    • Glyphs of Envy drop in Empowered Timelines and have a similar drop chance to Dungeon keys.

Mechanical Changes

Experience Changes

  • Experience requirement and XP tome changes
    • Increased XP requirements of levels 98, 99, and 100 by around 20%, 40%, and 60% respectively.
    • The XP from XP tomes now scales up less drastically above level 60. This effect is most noticeable above level 85.
    • XP tome rewards from echoes further from the center of the web now contain more XP tomes, up to a maximum of 7 tomes (from all XP tome rewards granting 3 tomes).
    • Reduced XP tome Echo reward occurrence rate by 29%-42% (larger values for lower Corruption and lower distance from the center of the echo web).
    • Minimum skill level changes (character level thresholds for minimum skill levels)
      • 2 at level 8 (from 10)
      • 3 at level 12 (from 15)
      • 4 at level 17 (from 20)
      • 5 at level 24 (from 30)
      • 6 at level 32 (from 40)
      • 7 at level 40 (from 50)
      • 8 at level 50 (from 60)
      • 9 at level 60 (from 70)
      • 10 at level 70 (from 80)
  • Reduced experience scaling from Corruption at high Corruption values.
    • Effective Corruption for calculating experience bonus increases at 25% speed after 300 Corruption (i.e. every 100 Corruption above 300 now is like 25 Corruption above 300 before).
    • Effective Corruption for calculating experience bonus increases at 5% speed after 1000 Corruption (i.e. every 100 Corruption above 1000 now is like 5 Corruption above 1000 before).
    • This is primarily intended to avoid reaching very high Corruption feeling necessary for effectively farming favor.


  • Changed the town scene characters load into. Now, characters will not always load into End Of Time after reaching it, but instead will load the last visited town scene.
  • Reduced item sell costs, especially early on.
  • Added option to only display enemy health bars once damaged
  • Improved ability responsiveness in Online
  • Added the ability to equip a 2 Handed weapon while dual wielding and place those items into your inventory
  • Added a waypoint to Sanctum of the Architect so that if you die, quit, or disconnect during the Liath or Lagon fights you don’t have to rerun the whole Temple of Lagon and Temple Depths zones.

Loot Filter Improvements

  • You can now add multiple affix conditions under the same rule
  • You can now filter for Unique items with specific Legendary Potential or Weaver’s Will values
    • All rules are now numbered top to bottom, the lower the number the higher the rule’s priority
  • You can now toggle a checkbox to highlight which rule in your loot filter caused an item to show up on the ground
  • Added an information to show if an affix cannot drop based off your other conditions under that rule.
  • Added an option in Gameplay settings which allows you to toggle your current loot filter by clicking the button instead of holding it.

    • Ability bar 2 moved to Y (Xbox) and Triangle (Playstation)
    • Dodge moved to B (Xbox) and Circle (Playstation)
  • Pressing Ctrl + Alt + LMB on game guide pages and internal links now creates a shortcut in the chat.

  • Translated unlocalized strings
  • Fixed string overlap issues
  • Updated a number of translations for common terms to be more accurate based off player feedback.

  • MTX Pets now match the player’s speed
  • Potion drop changes
    • Adjusted the shape and size of the area in which a potion is considered close to a potential drop location and reduces the chance of another potion dropping there. It’s now a 16 radius circle, rather than a 30x30 square. The total area is similar, 804 compared to 900.
    • Reduced the chance of a potion dropping if it’s considered close to enough existing ground potions to bring you to full potions. This chance is now 15% (from 20%)
    • Added a chance for a potion not to drop if it’s considered close to just one existing ground potion. This chance is 12%.


Monolith of Fate

  • The Forged Soldier Monolith ambush now includes only 1 Forged Soldier (from 2), and additionally has 1-2 Armored Phoenixes.
  • Increased gold Echo reward occurrence rate by 2-8% (larger values for lower Corruption and lower distance from the centre of the echo web).

  • Changed Necropolis Streets to be less linear, contain more of The Upper Necropolis’s areas, and have more different spawn points for players and random encounters.
  • Enforced more swarming and rare enemies in each Monolith Echo to help ensure a feeling of minimum monster density and avoid echoes that feel too unrewarding due to a lack of rare enemies.
  • Added a search box to the Timeline map with buttons for common reward searches. This creates a quick way to filter and search for desired Echo types and rewards, with matching modes highlighted on the map.

Gaze of Orobyss

  • Each Gaze of Orobyss grants 12 Corruption (from a varying amount, up to 10).
  • Only 4 Gaze of Orobyss can be consumed at once, the rest carries over to the next echo web (from all being consumed).
  • Only 1 Gaze of Orobyss is lost when you die fighting a Shade of Orobyss (from losing all Gaze of Orobyss).
  • Guests also gain Gaze of Orobyss when they are offered a Blessing in an Empowered Timeline, if they have an equivalent Empowered run in the same Timeline.

Blessing Stash and Swapping

  • Blessings are now stored on your character and can be swapped around via a respec vendor NPC in the End of Time for a small gold fee.
  • Defeating a Timeline Boss and unlocking a new Blessing now adds ALL the current rolled values to your list of available Blessings (if higher than previously earned versions), including the Blessings you do not select upon unlock.
  • For alts, Blessings earned on other characters that share a stash will be usable at their minimum roll values until a better roll is unlocked on the alt character.
    • Alt characters must still defeat the Timeline Boss and earn a Blessing from that Timeline in order to use the minimum roll ones from other characters. This will also unlock access to Grand Blessings if they have been previously discovered by a different character.

General Changes

  • Each Rank in Item Factions also now provides +5% increased Favor gain. At maximum Rank of 12, you will have +60% increased Favor gain.
  • Experience now scales less with Corruption, as Favor gain is tied to this, you will now earn more Favor at lower Corruption and less Favor at extremely high Corruption.
  • Adjusted Ranks 1-10 and added 2 new Ranks to the Merchant’s Guild and Circle of Fortune.
