Circle of Fortune’s Faction Mechanics

The Circle of Fortune caters perfectly to solo adventurers and casual groups seeking a more hands-on approach to acquiring loot and progressing through Last Epoch. Here's how it operates:

For those preferring targeted gameplay challenges over traditional gold-based transactions, the Circle of Fortune offers a tailored experience. Engage in bounties, crafting endeavors, and loot acquisition through Prophecies instead of relying on marketplace purchases.

Earning Favor

Accumulate Favor with the Circle of Fortune by dispatching monsters, completing quests, and taking on challenges presented by the Observatory's telescopes. Utilize Favor to procure Prophecies and Lenses, enhancing your loot acquisition capabilities.

Advancement through Ranks

Progression within the Circle of Fortune involves ascending through various ranks within the organization. By accruing Favor and investing in Reputation, you unlock higher ranks, each offering unique benefits such as increased loot drops, superior item affixes, and enhancements to crafting capabilities.

Unlocking Reputation

Reputation serves as the key to advancing through the ranks of the Circle of Fortune. Acquire Reputation by exchanging Favor, enabling you to climb the organization's hierarchy and access increasingly rewarding opportunities.

Unlocking Prophecies

Unlocking Prophecies

Prophecies serve as a cornerstone of the Circle of Fortune faction, offering a pathway to targeted loot acquisition. Here's how it works: Accrue Faction Favor by defeating monsters, completing quests, and engaging in endgame activities like Monoliths, Dungeons, and Arenas.

Head to the Observatory in Maj'elka to unlock Prophecies using your accumulated Favor. Quick travel to the Observatory through the faction menu by pressing Y and selecting "Travel To The Observatory."

Selecting Loot Categories

At the Observatory, utilize different lenses to choose the type of item you wish to acquire:

- Idols
- Armor (Body, Legs, Helmets, Gloves)
- Weapons (All types)
- Accessories (Relics, Rings, Amulets)

Navigating the Prophecy Screen

Choosing a lens opens the Prophecy Screen, where you can:

- Select specific Prophecies to unlock
- Reroll to access different types of Prophecies

All actions on the Prophecy Screen require Faction Favor.

Factors Influencing Prophecies

Various factors determine the types of Prophecies available:

1. Difficulty: Some Prophecies necessitate defeating challenging enemies like Diamond Matrons multiple times in story zones or Monoliths.

2. Unlock Conditions: Better Prophecies may require achieving milestones such as clearing Tier 4 Dungeons or reaching specific Monolith corruption levels. Others might mandate defeating Bosses or Arena champions.


Rerolling Prophecies is cost-effective, so feel free to do so multiple times until you find the desired type of Prophecy.


As you progress within the Circle of Fortune faction, you unlock various rewards and refine your Prophecy selection process. Here's how it works:

Lens Purchases and Refinement

Visit the vendor at the Observatory entrance to purchase lenses, which refine the types of Prophecies available in the Lens. Acquiring new lenses increases the likelihood of specific items appearing in Prophecies. As you accumulate Favor, higher-ranked lenses unlock, reducing the frequency of Dungeon, Monolith, or Arena Prophecies according to your preferences.

Tailoring Prophecies to Your Preference

Customize your Prophecy selection by investing in lenses tailored to your playstyle. For example, if Dungeon runs aren't your forte, invest in the 100% reduction in Dungeon Prophecies lens to minimize their occurrence.

Strategic Looting in Monoliths

Each Monolith presents unique loot opportunities, aligning with specific themes:

- Blood, Frost, and Death: Unique or Set Body Armor

- The Black Sun: Unique or Set Helmets and Shields

- Ending the Storm: Unique or Set Gloves

- Fall of the Empire: Unique or Set Belts

- Reign of Dragons: Unique or Set Swords, Axes, Maces, Daggers, and Spears

- The Last Ruin: Unique or Set Relics

- The Age of Winter: Unique or Set Rings, Amulets

- Fall of the Outcast: Unique or Set Bows, Quivers

Utilize this information to optimize your looting strategy and complement the types of Prophecies you're unlocking. Since specific mobs spawn in designated locations, prioritizing targets aligns with your desired loot objectives.
