Last updated on Mar 06, 2024 at 00:00 by GhazzyTV and Lavender

Welcome to our Last Epoch Marksman build guide for the Rogue class. Here you will learn everything about the Marksman playstyle, passives, skills and strengths or weaknesses to conquer the world of Eterra.


Marksman Overview

One arrow pierces through a heart and shatters a skull behind it. The next arrow jolts from her bow, sparks crackling in its path. The arrows break one body, then another, and another, a dozen dead; still, more come. She has enough arrows for them all.

Marksman Class Icon Last Epoch

The Marksman is one of three Mastery classes that can be chosen from the base class of Rogue. Marksman are masters of the bow, adept at both ranged and melee-ranged combat. The Marksman is quick to attack, dealing a high amount damage through a rapid barrage of arrows. This Mastery can opt to use subterfuge, allowing the player to snipe their foes from the shadows, or augment their arrows with a multitude of ailment effects ranging from poison-tipped arrowheads to detonating elemental bow attacks.

Marksman Skills

Upon unlocking the Marksman Mastery, you'll gain access to your Mastery-specific skill, Detonating Arrow Icon Detonating Arrow. While not specific to the Void Knight, the Mastery Tree comes with three skills that are unlocked by placing a certain amount of points into the Tree itself. All three Sentinel Masteries can use these as long as they hit the requirements to do so, however Hail of Arrows Icon Hail of Arrows is out of reach due to its location in the Passive Tree for both Bladedancer and Falconer.
