Last Epoch, Rive Paladin 0.7.10

October 13, 2020

For the last few years I’ve been secretly harboring a video game hobby playing third-person isometric aRPGs. This is my first post about that.

This is about Last Epoch, a game currently in open beta by Eleventh Hour Games and is my first original build that I felt I could stick my neck out and share without completely embarrassing myself. It was done with the help of many folks on the Last Epoch forum, unbeknownst to them, as I read and research a lot to try, tweak and tap different elements of the game in the quest.

I am a tried and true, die-hard, melee sword and shield fanatic, though this build uses an axe (when cosmetics start to arrive this will immediately get changed to look like a sword.)

Here goes nothing. Below you will find the skills and the passives. I’ve taken the build all the way through MoF except the three lvl 100 areas. I’m tackling that soon.

Things missing: a few remaining passives as I am still leveling the character. Will most likely be going toward more damage as the build is already quite tanky. Damage currently is averaging about 12k-16k from Rive and the third strike always criting. And with our attack speed we’re hitting that about 3 times every 2 1/2 seconds.

And just fyi, right now my gear is WAY overturned for defense. I’ve got like 140% resistance on everything.

The new skill Shield Bash is really fun and we use it as a supplemental buff mostly when we’re tackling elites or bosses.

For what it is worth, here is the gear I am currently wearing though I did not add in all the specific prefixes and suffixes I’ve taken. Gear Planner
