NOTICE: For the new mastery quest, don’t try to kill anything JUST RUN until you get to the end. Trying to kill any will give time for 100s more to spawn. By running they should have enough time to spawn. Unknown if this is a bug or feature. It has been confirmed to be a bug.
I am not in any way affiliated with Eleven Hour Games and cannot provide answers to question about future mechanics. Use their ask-the-devs section on discord. https://discord.gg/lastepoch
For questions on the future features you can also look here Early Access Development Forecast . This is an official post from the developers. Thank you Sarno for sharing that link in discord.
I see a lot of people asking simple questions in chat in-game and far too many people are being toxic and providing either sarcastic or purposefully giving wrong info. I am very active in game have played all classes and understand most mechanics. I hope to start a guild/clan if they add either to the game. My in-game name is Servire feel free to add me and pm question in-game too. I have notifications enabled for the forum so i will answer questions fairly quickly.
ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS:
How to finish the “Great College quest”: You first need to pick up the quest at the Great College then you have to go to the Ruined College and then back to the Great College. The ruined college is in the Ruined Era attached to The Ruins of Welryn on the right side of the map.
How to fix “bad graphics”, now I realize some people just don’t like the art style but others are actually having problems. I personally haven’t had a problem so I can’t confirm these work. Try changing the graphics then changing them back or try windowed full screen. Windowed full screen seems to also (again I cant prove this as I don’t know enough about tech) increase fps and help the game run smoother on your machine.
“Just to clarify - this works specifically with the resolution (e.g. 1920 x 1080).”-Sarno
There is no way to currently increase inventory and stash size. Between the crafting materials storage (press F) and the stash the devs (imo) gave more than enough room for items in the game currently.
Max character level is 100
Max skill levels are 20
No kind of multiplayer has been released yet. Though the developers have confirmed there will be in the future. When multiplayer is implemented you will not lose your current characters. They will still be stored locally on your pc. They however will not be able to be played online, so you will have to make new online chars. You will be able to choose offline or online when creating a character. This is confirmed by Sarno via their discord.
When you can no longer see loot on the ground press Z, sometimes it turns off on its own for some reason.
When an item fractures you can no longer craft onto it but you can still equip it and gain the stats from said piece of gear. There is no way currently to repair a fracture.
Sometimes chat will crash or something, which stops you from seeing and typing in chat. Press ESC and clikc “leave chat” and then “join chat” it will take a couple minutes for chat to come back but it should fix the problem. It does for me at least.

QUICK TIPS FOR NEW PLAYERS:
Get some void protection on any piece of gear ASAP. Void damage can be devastating in the first era. (It’s one of the reason I haven’t yet attempted a HC character.)
ALWAYS pick up uniques, they show up as an orange or green star on the minimap. Even if you already have it or it is useless they sell for 1k gold at any vendor.
Any time you see a vendor check for shattering runes. They cost 2k gold but are important for crafting.
Unlike when you re-spec your character, when you re-spec an ability you lose a level and have to re-level the ability. You don’t get the point back. When it comes to character passive points you do not lose the point.
Glyph of the Guardian: Some people (including myself at first) miss-interpret that this glyph can fix a fractured item “completely mitigates a minor fracture” does not mean remove it means it can prevent it IF you use before clicking forge it will increase chance for success.
When crafting if an item has more than 90% (or 80% if you’re feeling lucky I guess) chance of success use a Glyph of Stability instead as it makes crafting have a chance to add less instability allowing you to craft more onto an item before it shatters.
There are two types of modifiers when crafting “added” and “increased”. This can be seen when you press F beside each affix rune. “Added” will add a set amount as seen by a (+) so for example a “physical damage - added” will add +X phys damage. While “increased” adds a %multiplier so “physical damage - increased” will add a %X increased damage. So if you have 50 base damage and use an added affix rune and it adds 10 damage to the item you will have 60 base damage. If you use an increased affix rune and it adds 10% increased damage you will have 55 base damage. (50x0.10)+50 would be the equation. (Yes I know you don’t need that last zero and technically it is mathematically incorrect to put it, it will help with visualizations for some people.)
