      This week's Last Epoch patch includes some minor changes to multiplayer, bug fixes, skill updates, and more. Here is everything you need to know about it!
      If you have been waiting for the weekly Last Epoch patch, rest assured that it is officially live today. 
      Here is what you can expect from this patch:
      When teleporting to a team member that's inside an echo, you will now be placed in Echo of a World with the green portal to join at the time of your choosing. Additionally, when health is a fraction of 1, it will now always round up to 1 instead of rounding off, resulting in health sometimes displaying as 0.
      A number of general bug fixes have been deployed
      Several item tooltip fixes, including:
      Fixed a bug where opening / closing an item tooltip would have a drastic performance cost Fixed a bug where tooltip text could continue off the edge of the tooltip instead of wrapping Fixed a bug where some languages with a larger text height could be missing information on tooltips Fixed a bug where prefixes and suffixes had different line spacing on item tooltips Fixed a bug where some enemies were not displaying their top of screen health bars Fixed a bug where Shade of Orobyss’ “Starburst” ability would explode upon his death Fixed a bug where the falling rocks during the boss fight in Lightless Arbor could sometimes fail to display a telegraphing indicator before falling Fixed the invisible walls during the Elder Gaspar fight in The Chambers of Ruin, which could block projectiles Fixed a bug where Death’s Embrace’s Grim Harvest could trigger while at negative mana Fixed a bug where Enemy VFX could stop playing / freeze Fixed a bug where enemies would fail to play their death animation Fixed a bug where the B_Circle button would focus the action bar panel (skill bar) if it was previously selected Each class also received a certain number of fixes on different skills that were having issues:
      Fixed a bug where some skills, primarily traversal skills, would not work after a zone transition until using a different skill first. Fixed a bug where some scorpion enemies were unable to be targeted by Spirit Plague Fixed a bug where channeled movement skills could break if continued to be channeled after running into a wall Fixed a bug where every other use of Void Cleave with the Gravity’s Edge node (traversal) would have its hitbox at the start of the movement Fixed a bug where skills could stop working after closing a panel until the panel was closed a second time Fixed a bug where the player’s character was visible under the surface on certain locations during using of Synchronized Strike and Lethal Mirage Fixed a bug where Puncture’s Stay of Execution, and Detonating Arrow’s Aimed Shot nodes would play the VFX before the character animation when charged to max And lastly, a few bugs in multiplayer were fixed as well:
      Fixed an instance of a bug which could break all party interactions until re-logging Fixed a bug where players were unable to portal to other party members when both players were inside of an echo These bug fixes and changes were much needed and awaited by players, and they are improving the game in a very good way! The EHG team is continuing to work hard each week to provide more and more changes, and we are excited to see what the future holds!

      A new patch has been deployed for Last Epoch this week. The update adds more camera settings and controller keybinds, as well as some improved performances and bug fixes.
      Let's go over everything you need to know about Last Epoch's latest patch!
      Patch 1.0.6 was released yesterday, April 10th, 2024, and included the following system changes:
      Added Camera Smoothing options to settings: Normal (default/current), Low, and Off. Added functionality to Character Delete screen: The screen will now display the character class/mastery/level. When deleting a character, you are now required to enter the character name to confirm the deletion. The “B” button on controller can now be used to close keybind prompts. After binding a controller button, the cursor now re-focuses on the corresponding binding. Reduced gold turn-in reward for Desert Treasure from 20k to 2k. Added Buff Icon for Bone Armor (Acolyte). Improved performance when picking up Shards. Additionally, a number of bugs have been fixed:
      Fixed an issue where the Mage would T-pose during some animations. Fixed several cases of back-slot clipping and floating capes. Fixed a bug where the Sentinel idle animation with a 2H weapon would behave as if a shield was equipped. Regarding some of the issues with controller:
      Fixed a bug where if a panel was opened with keyboard and mouse, further button presses via controller would activate the assigned skills through the panel. Fixed a bug where when opening the bindings menu, or interacting with it, with a mouse, would result in the bindings disappearing. Fixed a number of bugs with rebinding controller configuration. Fixed a bug where players would continue to run in the direction of their last input if the game became unfocused while moving. A certain number of UI bugs have also been addressed:
      Fixed a bug where player health bars were not appearing in offline. Fixed a bug where Forged Weapons’ health bars could be displayed at top-of-screen instead of the boss’ health bar. Fixed missing Localization in the Gifting panel for resonances. Fixed a bug where Item Tooltips would get stuck when adding a new tab to the stash. Chat channels are now specific to cycle/non-cycle. Fixed a bug where Husk enemies would not have health bars. System bugs that got fixed:
      Fixed a bug in offline where players would not have full health, mana, and potions after logging in or reviving. Fixed a bug where invalid offhand items could be equipped from the forge (eg. catalyst with a bow). Fixed an issue where monolith quest progress would reset if you left the zone/server after starting, but before completing the quest chain. Finally, a good amount of skill bugs have been corrected:
      Fixed a bug where Bone Curse “Signet of Agony” node’s resulting aura would persist after de-speccing out of the skill. Fixed a bug where Erasing Strike’s “Ravenous Void” node’s void beams wouldn’t move in online play. Fixed a bug where Volcanic Orb could be cast in incorrect directions, such as flying up when the cursor was over top of a ridge line. Fixed a bug where if you teleported back to the monolith hub or rest area while a companion was downed, the revive UI would continue to persist even after being revived. Fixed a bug where Manifest Armor was not benefiting from Increased Area for Area Skills stats on items the player is wearing that are applied to Manifest Armor, such as on gloves. Fixed a bug where the Gathering Fury unique bow’s chance to repeat bow abilities was applying to non-bow abilities, and could kill the player if it repeated a Falcon ability. Fixed a bug where Boardman’s Plan’s chance to summon a Storm Totem on hit with Tempest Strike was not working. Fixed a bug where triggered instances of Tempest Strike were not benefiting from the Tempest Strike skill tree. Fixed a bug where Bone Curse’s Marrow Thief node would not grant 10% less damage taken. Fixed a bug where Death Seal’s Skeletal Sheath always granted Bone Armor for a fixed. duration, ignoring the duration Death Seal was active. Fixed a bug where Firebrand’s Galvanize node would disable Brand of Arcanus. Fixed a bug where Flame Rush could cause the player to become invisible. The team at Eleventh Hour Games also planned to include a fix for Death's Embrace, but they were unable to do it in time, therefore it has been delayed until next week's patch.

      Eleventh Hour Games has shared how they are addressing gold exploits and real-money trading in Last Epoch, including the recent actions taken to safeguard the game's economy and maintain fair play.
      The Last Epoch team has raised concerns over a recent gold exploit and other general exploits within the game's online environment. Below, we will cover everything you need to know about the situation and the measures they are implementing to prevent it.
      Eleventh Hour Games has detected several recent exploits, particularly concerning gold, as well as real-money trading (RMT) within Last Epoch's online realm. The team is concerned about the use of these systems and plans to take immediate action if such activities are detected.
      Since the launch of Last Epoch 1.0, two significant exploits have emerged: item duplication through the bazaar (for which a fix has already been deployed) and a gold exploit, which has now also been addressed. 
      In response to the gold exploit, EHG is looking into gold transactions on accounts to identify and permanently ban everyone involved in illegal gold transfers, including buyers and sellers. 
      "We take exploits within Last Epoch very seriously and ensure that any time an exploit comes up, we give it our full and immediate attention." - Eleventh Hour Games
      While the methods of tracking these activities remain secret—to prevent exploiters from countering it—the Last Epoch team is actively banning accounts engaged in RMT services. The aim of this plan is to regulate the in-game economy and reduce inflation within the Merchant's Guild.
      Moving forward, Eleventh Hour Games is committed to not only responding quickly to emerging problems, but also actively preventing them. For more details on the steps taken, you can check the official forum post here: RMT and Exploit Statement
