So you’ve just started playing Last Epoch and aren’t sure which mastery classes are good? Well, you’re in luck, as that’s exactly what our Last Epoch tier list is here to help with. In this very guide, we rank all of the masteries from S tier to D tier, with S being best and D being worst. That way, you can focus on filling out your party with S and A tiers to ensure that you perform well, skipping the B-D tiers. We’ll also include a description of the tiers so you know what they actually mean.

Last Epoch is a hack and slash action RPG. It gives you the chance to dive into a fantasy world, with magic, time travel and all sorts of monsters that you’ll have to deal with. Build your character with a massive range of skills and choose a mastery class to find your niche.

You can learn more about it on the official site. We also recommend checking out our Fortnite Reality Augments tier list, Yggdrasil 2: Awakening tier list, and Pokemon Violet/Scarlet tier list.

Last Epoch Tier List

Before we move onto the tier list proper, here’s a description of how our tiering system works so that you can make sense of it.

What Do Our Tiers Mean?

Here’s a brief explanation of each of our tiers:

  • S Tier: Masteries in this tier are the absolute best that the game has to offer. You should prioritise unlocking these and increasing their power. One of these can carry you through the entire game.
  • A Tier: These are still great in their own right, but they just lack a little something when you compare them to an S tier. Use them when you need to, but drop them when you can.
  • B Tier: These are solid, if unremarkable. Definitely swap them out for A tiers and S tiers if it suits, but don’t be ashamed to use them if you need to.
  • C Tier: This is when we get into ‘bad class’ territory. C tiers are, much like D tiers, some of the worst in the game, but they often have niche uses. They might be really strong in a particular game mode, or during a certain phase of the game. Take a close look at their skills and judge accordingly.
  • D Tier: Classes in this tier are simply never worth using. They’re the worst in the game, suffering from severe balance issues, and will underperform at all points in any modes. Don’t use them if you can avoid it.

S Tier

God tier masteries. Try one at the beginning as they will power you through the game.

  • Bladedancer
  • Druid
  • Lich
  • Sorcerer

A Tier

Solid classes that will get you far. 

  • Marksman
  • Necromancer
  • Paladin
  • Spellblade 

B Tier

These start strong but fade later on. Don’t be ashamed to use them, but do keep this in mind.

  • Beastmaster
  • Forgeguard
  • Void Knight

C Tier

In certain game modes, or at the beginning, classes in this tier can excel. Mostly, they’re useless though.

  •  Shaman

D Tier

Never use D tiers unless you can’t avoid it. They’re awful at all game modes, and at all phases of the game.

  •  There are no D-tier classes right now!

Last Epoch Tier List FAQ

Still unsure about our tier list? Got questions about Last Epoch in general? Hopefully our tier list can help!

What’s A Tier List?

We should probably have answered this question at the beginning, eh? A tier list is, quite simply, a list of all of the characters in a specific game ranked from best to worst. In our case, S is the best characters with D being the worst, and A, B, and C filling the gaps.

The purpose of a tier list is to help you determine which characters to use at all stages of the game. We try and make our tier list as useful as possible by explaining our tier system.

For example, there are instances where certain characters are excellent during the beginning of a game, but fade later on. Or, they could be good at a certain game mode. We’ll always try and make this clear.

How Did We Select Our Last Epoch Tier List?

We used a number of different sources when selecting our Last Epoch tier list, but, primarily, we judge based on our personal experience with the game. As a result, it is bound to be quite a subjective list, but there’s no getting around that.

To determine the rankings, we both experiment with the classes in the game (if unlocked), as well as theory-craft based on skill descriptions and raw statistics. That’s why you’ll see our tier list change so much when a game first launches, as we’re in the testing phase.

It’s also worth noting that we do scour communities, like Reddit, for community feedback. If the general consensus is that a specific mastery is strong or weak, we will reflect that in our tier list. That way, it’s got a certain degree of objectivity.

We’ll wrap this section up by reminding you that tier lists are subjective by nature. Your experience may vary completely to ours, so take it with a pinch of salt.

When Do We Update Our Last Epoch Tier List?

You can expect to see an update to our Last Epoch tier list whenever a new class is introduced. It might take us a while to test the mastery for ourselves though, so expect a brief delay.

We also update the list whenever a big balance patch hits, as this will throw the meta out the window. Again, there may be a brief delay as we experiment with the changes and update our rankings.
