Eleventh Hour Games on Real-Money Trading and Exploits in Last Epoch

Recommended Posts


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

      In addition to the weekly updates, Eleventh Hour Games is providing details about an upcoming Bazaar sales cleanup, along with other changes and bug fixes. Here is everything you need to know!
      The weekly patch went live on May 15th, including the following changes: 
      The Keeper's Camp spawn point has been moved. You will now directly appear next to the waypoint in Keeper's Camp.
      Additionally, Gathering Storm's "Friends of the Tempest" now needs the minion's tag to match "Gathering Storm" rather than the minion's ability tag matching "Gathering Storm". For instance, if "Summon Wolf" has the minion lightning tag, all attacks from your wolves can trigger "Friends of the Tempest". The change also fixes a bug in which some converted minions, such as cold Storm Crows or cold Warcry Totem, could not activate "Friends of the Tempest" after "Gathering Storm" was converted to cold.
      Along with these small changes, the following bugs have been fixed:
      Fixed a bug where specific circumstances could cause a character to instantly revive after death. This could result in a hardcore character becoming a standard character without the feedback of having hit zero health (death screen). Fixed a crash when a stash tab’s name has a specific mix of emoji’s & line breaks. This was caused by a Stack Overflow in the text/ui layouting. Fixed a bug with Ring of Shields, where having unlocked “Rush Wall” node in “Ring of Shields” skill and then using “Shield Rush” would very often result in shields having incorrect rotation. Fixed a bug with Ring of Shields, where after using “Shield Bash” skill with “Wall of Shields” node unlocked, the shield wall disappears immediately after being spawned Fixed a bug with Ring of Shields, where after using “Shield Bash” skill with “Wall of Shields” node unlocked, the shields would remain attached to the player Fixed a bug where Warpath could cause Ring of Shields to change distance from the player. Fixed a bug where removing channels in chat settings would not remove them from channel selection in the input section. Fixed a bug where if a player had all chat channels disabled, then tried to send a player a direct message, the message would be sent to global if they did not already have an existing conversation with that player Fixed Smite not triggering Healing Hands while you are out of mana if both are free and you do not have the Desperate Measures node in the Smite tree. Fixed floating health bar location for Gaspar Husk, Volatile Zombies, Emperor of Corpses’ Volatile Zombies, and Death Knights Fixed a bug where Enemy Crows, and Black Sun Rahyeh were on the wrong layer resulting in some decals laying on top of them. Fixed a bug where prophecies would not save correctly for some players causing them to consistently re-roll Fixed a bug where the waves would start themselves in The Fall of Ledria quest echo Fixed “armor shred” and other affixes not appearing in the affix search for certain base types Fixed a bug where pressing Alt after picking up an item would open its tooltip Fixed a bug where some Sentinel helmets would not display on the character Fixed a bug where you could load into Echo of a World with no floor
      It's also worth noting that on May 20th, 2024, Last Epoch's Bazaar will undergo a major cleanup, which involves clearing all records of redeemed and cancelled transactions from the Bazaar. As a result, any closed listings from before May 20th will no longer be displayed on your redemption page. In addition, the EHG team plans to include an automated cleanup system in version 1.1, which will remove old redeemed and cancelled auctions after a specific period of time.

      Eleventh Hour Games teased their next major cycle with a promising trailer and some interesting details! Harbingers of Ruin will release on the 9th of July!
      Last Epoch's next big update, patch 1.1, looks to be a very promising cycle. The patch is called Harbingers of Ruin, and the global launch date is set for July 9th, 2024!
      First, let's have a look at the teaser trailer below:
      The teaser is not revealing much for the time being, but with the recent roadmap reveal, we can expect the following:
      New Pinnacle Boss, which will only be accessible on the new Cycle Realm at first. The Last Epoch team at EHG is currently conducting a survey in order to know when to release the boss for the Eternal Realm. You can still participate here: Pinnacle Content - Realm Release Timing Poll Random Encounters: Nemesis. We don't have much information about them, but these are most likely powerful new enemies / enemy types.  Evade (Dodge Roll) Mechanic: If you are a fan of ARPGs in general, chances are you feel like something is missing. Well, fear not, because the long-awaited dodge roll mechanic is making its way into the game! And much more to come.
      The first few Cycles of Last Epoch are less about a specific theme, but rather about adding more permanent content to the game. 
      Keep in mind that certain content, such as the pinnacle boss, will initially be exclusive to Cycle characters. The boss should become available for the Eternal Realm later on. EHG intends to give Cycle characters some time to complete content first without keeping anything from the Eternal Realm, so that even players who do not want to create a new character can eventually enjoy the new content after some time. 
      1.1 Cycle also opens up interesting speculations among players, such as:
      New gameplay mechanics, for example, summoning minions from portals. There are concerns about the release date as it is close to the Elden Ring DLC and Final Fantasy XIV expansion release.  In any case, it's an exciting time for Last Epoch players! With much more information to come in the future, we will, of course, keep you updated as new details become available!

      Eleventh Hour Games has just released a brand-new roadmap, revealing a few details about the following cycles and what will come next in patches 1.1 through 1.4! Here is what you need to know!
      The team at EHG is dedicated to creating an amazing ARPG, which is a process that can take some time. However, they are working hard on improving everything and giving players the best experience possible. Just now, the team has decided to share a roadmap with everyone of things that will be coming in future cycles:

      New monoliths, story chapters, hunt events, zones, ancient era maps, and bosses are on their way! And that is not all: the famous Evade (Dodge Roll) Mechanic will be added to Last Epoch! This list is, of course, not fully complete, and the EHG team has many more plans for the game's future! They will continue to update the roadmap to keep us updated about further plans for the game as well as developments, and any feedback from the community is always welcome.
      In addition to the roadmap, you will be happy to hear that development for version 1.1 of Last Epoch is coming along nicely! The current plan for version 1.X is to eventually make all the content available for Offline, Cycle, and Legacy realms, while also giving cycle characters the time to tackle new pinnacle content before optimized legacy characters get the chance to showcase their strength in it.
      Every cycle will reset the economy and leaderboard, giving all players in the new cycle an even playing field.
      The Last Epoch team would like to hear more feedback from the community on this, so they have set up a poll, which you can access here:  Pinnacle Content - Realm Release Timing Poll
      Don't hesitate to participate in the poll; the more people that respond, the better the EHG team will be able to adapt and adjust things based on community feedback!

      Last Epoch offers multiple options and ways to customize or craft your legendary items. But among all these systems, is there one that players prefer, or are they all equally favored? Let's find out!
      By now, most Last Epoch players have reached the late game stages and explored the multitude of systems and end-game possibilities to get the best-in-slot gear. Among these are Legendary Potential and Weaver’s Will items. While both can yield incredibly strong legendary items, it seems one method has become more popular among the vast majority of players.
      It was on Reddit, that the community first discussed what was best between Weaver's Will and Legendary Potential. To check the discussion and related comments, you can visit the post from user Pleasant-Guava9898 here: What do you like more, Weaver, Unique, or crafted items?
      Weaver's Will is definitely the go-to for most players.
      Crafting with Legendary Potential items relies heavily on RNG (random factors), which can be a significant downside for many. You could farm for over 30 hours and not get the Legendary Potential and Exalted items you desire. While trading can mitigate this to some extent, it is still much more work than acquiring a good Weaver's Will.

      What has been your favorite method of obtaining your BiS (best-in-slot) gear so far?
      Recent updates for Last Epoch have further shaped the crafting systems. The latest patches introduced new skills for some classes, along with fresh gear items, which also improved the crafting experience. Community feedback has been a great help in these developments, with players voicing their concerns about the grind for corruption levels and the pacing of end-game progression. Moreover, the developers, Eleventh Hour Games, have responded with adjustments to high-damage abilities and improvements to the UI, providing a more balanced and enjoyable journey for all players, and they are still working on making the game a place where people want to stay!

      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!
