In a recent developer blog by Lead Developer Trasochi, Affixes, Defenses and Minions are going to be changing in 0.8.1. The changes will lead to more effective builds with items that are specific to the players desired focus.
In a short tweet by Last Epoch developer Eleventh Hour Games, the team posts a couple screenshots depicting some of the itemization changes players can expect in patch 0.8.1.
Last Epoch Game Director Judd Cobler took to the forums to post a year in review of how far the game has come, and what players can expect to see in 2021. Cobler also thanks the players for their enthusiasm and support, and wants to let everyone know "We could not have made it through this year without you."
Eleventh Hour Games has released two patches this week that have culminated in quite a big step forward in the development of the early access title Last Epoch. Beta Patch 0.8 and Patch 0.8B provide quite a few delectable patch notes that Last Epoch's hack and slash fans will surely gobble up.
