Become a powerful Rogue in the latest update to the action-RPG Last Epoch

By - | Views: 16,768

This might actually be my favourite class so far in Last Epoch, the impressive time-travelling action RPG.

Last Epoch 0.8 is out now and adds in the 5th playable character class with the Rogue, giving you the chance to dance around your enemies with some blades. This new class comes with 2 mastery classes with the Bladedancer and Marksman, 17 skills and specialization trees, 46 class-specific affixes for body armour and helmets along with it having a unique character model, animations and some wonderful voice acting. Easily now my go-to character because seeing blades spinning around and throwing shurikens is ridiculously satisfying.

Not all though, they also improved the multiplayer with this update. While you can play it entirely solo, having multiplayer features is a nice touch to expand upon. The social features are more stable, you can now whisper to other players, you can adjust more chat settings and manage your friends list easier.

Lots more than that! It's a huge update. Love daggers? Good news, they're in with 11 subtypes available. There's also now Bows with 11 subtypes and they're currently Rogue-specific and Quivers as well that you use off-hand with bows and they also have 8 subtypes. So much experimenting now possible with all the different classes and equipment. Additionally there's 8 new unique items, a new 3-piece set, visual and sound updates, performance improvements and quite a lot more.

Even though it's in Early Access and so it's not finished, Last Epoch might now be my go-to action RPG when I want to run around questing, looting and cutting up horrible creatures with blades. Eleventh Hour Games are doing well with it and I'm seriously keen to see how much they expand it. Definitely one to take a look at if you're in need of a new RPG.

You can buy Last Epoch on Steam.

Y'know, I dismissed Last Epoch when I first heard about it. "Time travel? Phhhtt, please," I thought, "Dr. Who in a dungeon." But now that I go and look at it again, and look at it more closely, I can see I was so, so wrong to dismiss it like I did. The "time travel" looks like it could be called "dimensional shift" or "alternate reality" for all that it matters --- and that's great! It looks awesome, so it's goin' on the wishlist at last! Thanks Liam.

Rogue class (currently level 20) is something that I was looking forward to.
Feels more like a barbarian (with one skill at least), but I really enjoy the leveling so far with this class.
Dual wielding is such a beauty!

Sadly, I was more interested early on when the inventory and pace of action didn't look so much like Diablo. I might be a minority, but I don't really like getting hundreds of loot items and figuring out which might be an upgrade versus junk. I'd rather have less loot but sweeter. I also am not as interested in feeling like I'm rushing through every scene constantly. Feels so much like rinse and repeat. "Ok, you do your spinny thing forever, and I'll try to kite." Probably just me though.
