Like in almost every ARPG on the market, Last Epoch will drop a lot of common loot you don’t want. So, to sift through the junk, here is how to use loot filters in Last Epoch.
How to Activate the Loot Filter in Last Epoch
To active the loot filter in Last Epoch, hit ‘Shift+F‘ on your keyboard, or navigate through the menu to ‘Interface’ and then select ‘Shift+F | Manage Loot Filters‘ if you feel like taking the more complex route to the same destination. Once you open the loot filter, you’ll receive a new interface where you may add various rules using the ‘+ Add Rule‘ button on the top of the menu. Here, you can add up to 75 unique rules that determine the type of loot that appears on your HUD.
Alternatively, you can import or export a filter made by another player. It’s simple, you must:
- Select the ‘+‘ symbol in the Loot Filter Interface.
- Select ‘Open Filter Folder.’
- Copy and paste the downloaded Filter here.
- Access and activate the Filter using the in-game Loot Filter Interface.
You can find Loot Filters from other players on the forum, various websites dedicated to the game, and Nexus Mods!
How the Loot Filter Works in Last Epoch
The rules you place will be entirely up to you and your build. You may wish to remove common drops from the HUD; you can recolor items to suit your eyesight and preferences and ensure the loot filters show every Unique and Exalted item when they drop from enemies.
The goal of a loot filter is to sift out the unwanted, only to show those items that directly benefit your class, build, and playstyle. That is, so long as you set your loot filter rules correctly.
A few of my favorite rules include class requirements, level requirements, rarity, and item type. When I start playing any ARPG, not just Last Epoch, I have a playstyle in mind before creating a character. I want my loot drops to suit that style and complement it throughout the entire playthrough so as not to waste any time.
