The Fundamental Criterion Body Armor can be acquired as a reward for completing Echoes and Quests in the Blood, Frost, and Death Timeline.
If you are a Mage player, incorporating this Armor into your build will provide you immense protection from hits along with a massive buff to your Ward Decasy Threshold.

Last Epoch encompasses a colossal collection of weapons and armor to assist you in your battles against formidable bosses and other elite enemies. Although taking down these deadly foes can be quite challenging, you will be rewarded with elusive items for your efforts, each possessing unique stats and modifiers to further empower your build. One such item is the Fundamental Criterion Body Armor which significantly increases your Ward Decay Threshold along with protection from enemy hits. Without further ado, here’s how you can obtain it.

Here’s How You Can Get the Fundamental Criterion Body Armor in Last Epoch

To acquire the Fundamental Criterion Body Armor, you need to reach the End of Time region and unlock the Blood, Frost, and Death Timeline. Once you get there, you will have to complete various Echoes in the Timeline for a chance to acquire this Unique Mage Body Armor. 

Additionally, you can also complete quests within the Blood, Frost, and Death Timeline to further increase your chances. There are three different quests in this region:

  • Wengari Battleground

  • Occupied Heoborea

  • The Lair of Formosus

Completing the third and final quest requires you to take down Formosus the Undying Timeline Boss, who is a master of Cold and Necrotic Damage. However, you need to keep in mind that reaching this quest requires you to have 300 Stability in normal and 800 Stability in Empowered. Taking down this boss also guarantees your chances to obtain four boss-specific Uniques and 1 Set Item.
