Crafting is an essential part of Last Epoch, allowing players to improve and customize their gear. While it may appear difficult at first, understanding the fundamentals and following a few essential tips may make the creative process simple and enjoyable. In this guide, we will go over everything you need to know to get started with crafting in Last Epoch.

Key Concepts of Crafting in Last Epoch

Before diving into crafting, it's essential to understand some key concepts:

  1. Affixes: Affixes are modifiers that can be added to a gear to enhance its stats. Items can have up to four affixes, with two prefixes and two suffixes.

  2. Forging Potential: Forging Potential represents the number of crafting modifications an item can undergo. Once an item's Forging Potential reaches zero, it can no longer be crafted.

  3. Shards: Shards are used to upgrade existing affixes on an item or add new affixes. Each shard corresponds to a specific affix type.

  4. Glyphs: Glyphs are consumable items that can modify the outcome of a craft. They can provide benefits such as reducing Forging Potential costs or changing affixes.

  5. Runes: Runes are advanced crafting materials that can perform unique crafting procedures, such as rerolling affix values or transforming items into unique rarities.

How to Craft in Last Epoch

Crafting in Last Epoch is done through the Forge, which can be accessed by pressing 'F'. To craft an item, follow these steps:

  1. Open the forging menu by pressing 'F'.

  2. Put the item in the center of the Forge.

  3. Choose the affix you wish to enhance and select the 'up' arrow above it.

  4. Click on 'Upgrade Affix' to increase the affix level by one tier.

Affixes and Shards

Affixes are modifiers that can be applied to things to improve their qualities. There are two kinds of affixes: prefixes and suffixes. Prefixes increase damaging and utility stats, whereas suffixes boost defense numbers. Affixes can be improved with affix shards that match specific stats. 

Glyphs and Runes

Glyphs and runes are unique crafting items that can be utilized to modify stats. Glyphs are used to improve crafts, such as lowering the Forging Potential cost or swapping an affix to another. Runes, on the other hand, are utilized for more complicated crafting techniques like rerolling affix values or transforming an item into a Unique with the same basic type.

Advanced Crafting Strategies

  • Critical Success: Some crafts may result in a critical success, which upgrades all affixes by one tier and refunds crafting materials.

  • Legendary Potential: Unique items with Legendary Potential can be upgraded into legendaries by combining them with exalted items in the Temporal Sanctum dungeon.
