Leveling Class Tier List

For leveling in Last Epoch 1.1, you ideally want a class that can quickly clear out mass amounts of enemies while being able to sustain and keep their own life replenished. Classes in the S Tier are able to quickly kill swarms of enemies and bosses while also managing to stay alive.

Those in the A Tier can typically survive while being able to AoE or kill bosses. In the B Tier, classes may have a specific specialty but fall short of those in the S or A Tier, while classes in the C Tier are a bit undertuned for leveling in this patch and alternatives should be considered.

Here is our Last Epoch 1.1 Class Tier List for leveling:

S Tier

  • Bladedancer
  • Paladin
  • Warlock

A Tier

  • Falconer
  • Runemaster
  • Shaman
  • Sorcerer

B Tier

  • Druid
  • Forge Guard
  • Marksman
  • Void Knight

C Tier

  • Beastmaster
  • Lich
  • Necromancer
  • Spellblade

Endgame Class Tier List

In the endgame of Last Epoch, you typically what classes that can easily take down bosses as well as farm Empowered Monoliths with ease. As such, the classes and builds that are better at endgame may vary compared to the previous leveling tier list.

For the endgame, classes in the S Tier are able to quickly clear out Empowered Monoliths and decimate bosses, while those in the A Tier can also do it just not as well. In the B Tier, classes may be good at one or the other, but not necessarily great at them both, while those in the C Tier are a bit underpowered in this patch for endgame.

Here is our Last Epoch 1.1 Endgame Class Tier List including some build recommendations for each class:

S Tier

  • Falconer (Ballista, Bleed, Dive Bomb, Shadow Dagger)
  • Sorcerer (Frostbite Frost Claw, Glacier, Spark Charge)

A Tier

  • Beastmaster (Squirrel, Tempest EQ, Upheaval)
  • Druid (Aftershock Werebear, Earthquake Werebear, Frostbite Swarmblade)
  • Paladin (Bleed Hammerdin, Bleed Javelin, Smite Hammerdin)
  • Spellblade (Flame Reave, Shatter Strike)
  • Warlock (Bleed, Torment)

B Tier

  • Necromancer (Golem, Roid, Wraith)
  • Runemaster (Hydrahedon, Plasma Orb)
  • Void Knight (Echo Warpath, Rive, Smite)
