Best 3 Mastery Classes for Leveling in Last Epoch

The best classes for leveling in Last Epoch are the Paladin Sentinel, the Bladedancer Rogue, and the Runemaster Mage. There are five different classes you can choose from in the game and each one has at least two main Mastery options that specialize the build. As you level up, your first Mastery tree will dictate the build for your class early on and they all feel different. Nearly any choice in the early stages of Last Epoch will be viable, but the top three builds share some of the same traits.

Two of the most important traits for the best leveling builds in Last Epoch are gear and damage. Leveling builds that require specific items to be considered good are a nightmare to deal with. You already have a lack of resources for crafting and running into Unique drops is far less common. Class builds that are easy to gear up are fantastic for leveling in the first half of the game. Max-level builds are a different story.

Top 3 Early Game Classes in Last Epoch Ranked:

  1. Paladin Sentinel – High damage and tons of survivability.
  2. Bladedancer Rogue – Nearly limitless mobility and easy damage options.
  3. Runemaster Mage – High defense for a Mage and plenty of DoT damage to wipe groups.

Of course, damage is the second most important. The Paladin Sentinel, Runemaster Mage, and the Bladedancer Rogue can all destroy groups of enemies in the blink of an eye. Their base skills and passives make leveling them early in Last Epoch incredibly easy. It also helps that the Mage and the Rogue have fantastic supporting skills while the Paladin Sentinel will feel impossible to kill.

When you reach the early end game of Last Epoch, the build and classes tier lists will drastically change. You can start using the Forge to Salvage decent Affixes and create more specialized builds outside of easy gear.

Save some of the Legendary Potential gear that you find to make the most of your late-game classes.
