Last Epoch Fast Leveling Guide

last epoch leveling

Players must level up quickly to reach the Monolith of Fate content Last Epoch. Most end-game timelines have minimum requirements to make you eligible to challenge them. To reach the fun stuff and collect the most powerful Uniques, you should level up quickly to get the maximum 100. Here is how you can quickly grind through most of the game's content.

Don’t Speedrun Level if It’s Your First Character

While getting to the end-game content sounds alluring, we highly advise new players or those playing with their first characters to go through the average leveling experience. We recommend following the primary story campaign to get a feel for Last Epoch’s gameplay. In addition, you can learn more about many mechanics while collecting essential perks like Passive Points and Idol slots.

General Strategies of Fast Leveling

There are various methods for fast leveling, and some will work more effectively for specific builds. However, all of them will still adhere to the general strategies for fast EXP farming. If you learn these things first, then you can make your version quickly grind levels.

Speed is Everything

High Movement Speed is arguably the most crucial element in ARPGs regarding speed running. It lets you blitz through opponents, bypass unnecessary obstacles, and reach objectives more quickly. The quicker you go, the faster you can finish quests and campaign chapters. 

During the game's early stages, you can get items that can increase your Movement Speed, like the Silver Ring, which increases it by 3 to 8%. Ideally, it would help if you equipped this accessory until you get a better one. Boots would be the best item to invest in, as many of them offer a significant speed boost, so you should always look for good pieces to help with your level grind. 

You should also pay attention to specific items. For example, The Falcon armor can increase your Movement Speed by 15%. Most body sets that provide MS will have Dodge Ratings, so keep an eye on those you can use. Here is a list of items that you should consider having for movement speed:

  • Silver Ring
  • Advent of the Erased Boots
  • Lessons of the Metropolis Boots
  • Arboreal Circuit
  • Thorn Slinger
  • Quicksilver Coil
  • The Falcon
  • Fighting Chance

Unlock All Passive Points and Idol Slots

Even if you want to speedrun your level, you still need to do specific quests from the campaign to get all Passive Points and Idol Slots. If you reach the Monolith stage with these perks, you will feel significantly more powerful and have no trouble navigating through timelines. 

Both categories can be obtained by playing specific campaign quests and side missions. There are 15 Passive Points and 8 Idol Slot Rewards, and you will need them all to be effective in the end-game content. If you don’t want to play the whole campaign, focus on collecting these perks. Make sure to have all of them before you enter the Monolith stage. 

Farm Arena Nodes in Monolith of Fate

Once you finish Chapter 9, you should focus on the Monolith of Fate. Each timeline will feature different Echoes or nodes you can grind for EXP and items. However, you want to find the Arena Echoes to level up faster because they spawn more mobs. More monsters mean more EXP gain, which can help you gain more levels.

You will want to use skills and builds that can clear out hordes quickly, so focus on using AoE or cleave attacks. Don’t stack on Corruptions since they will make mobs much harder to kill. Only generate this meter when you unlock Empowered Monolith or farming items. 

Look for Combat-Oriented and EXP Bonus Blessings

Every time you complete a Timeline, you can activate a random Blessing to boost your stats. Each branch features different sets of buffs, and each of them will either focus on drop rate bonuses or combat-oriented perks. It’s best to concentrate on timelines that provide the latter since they will help you the most in leveling up. 

You don’t need to do all timelines when leveling up because they rely on the level to unlock. We recommend focusing on the branches on the right side leading to the last three Timelines. Here are all the Monolith of Fate nodes you should get Blessings from first:

  • Fall of the Outcasts
  • The Black Sun
  • Ending the Storm
  • Reign of Dragons
  • The Age of Winter
  • Spirits of Fire

Remember that combat-oriented Blessings will help you level up faster since it boosts your efficiency in clearing out mobs. Don’t bother completing other timelines that increase drop rates since they are not worth it until you get Empowered Monolith of Fate.

Unlock Empowered Monolith

Empowered Monolith of Fate is the accurate end-game content of Last Epoch, and you will get many benefits just by unlocking it. You will face stronger enemies but gain better rewards and EXP. Unlocking this content is a must if you plan on reaching level 100.

You can activate Empowered Monolith by finishing the last three timelines at the end of the branch. The best way to do so is to focus on the right-side branches and skip the ones on the left. Farm EXP until you reach the minimum rank for each Timeline, allowing you to get the last three quickly.

Things to Remember

Some Classes are better suited for fast grinding than others. Jobs like Acolytes and Rogues have higher Movement Speed stats and decent AoE attacks, which allows them to blitz through earlier stages of the game. However, they might have trouble during the latter phases.

  • It’s best to kill any magic or rare monsters you encounter along the way. While they are more durable than regular mobs, they provide an additional 50% EXP, which can help in your fast-leveling grind.
  • When doing Echoes in any Timeline, you can acquire Tomes of Experience, consumables that provide a decent amount of EXP. Make sure to activate them once you obtain them.
