As you progress through the campaign of Last Epoch, you will encounter a decision to join one of two factions: the Merchants Guild or the Circle of Fortune. In this guide, our focus will be on the faction tailored for players interested in item hunting, namely the Circle of Fortune.

Below, we will delve into all the particulars regarding the Circle of Fortune in Last Epoch, going over the ranks and rewards and providing you with a general overview of the process of joining this faction. So, without any more delay, let's dive straight in.

Last Epoch Circle of Fortune Explained: Unlocking and Prophecies

The Circle of Fortune faction is the preferred choice for players who wish to utilize the loot drops they discover in the world for their builds rather than buying or trading for them. To join this faction, players must reach the Upper District of Maj'Elka in Chapter 9 of the Campaign. This can be achieved naturally over the campaign or by using a Temporal Sanctum Key to defeat Chronomancer Julra, opening a shortcut straight to Chapter 9.

Similar to the Merchants Guild, once unlocked, the Circle of Fortune employs two main mechanics—Faction Rank and Favor—that work together to provide better drops and enable farming for specific drops using Prophecies.

Prophecies are specific side missions that guarantee rewards such as weapons, gear, and other items. Lenses, special items you can buy, when used on a particular Prophecy, tune it to provide specific rewards. For instance, it may adjust the reward of a Prophecy to offer better or more favorable stats for your build.

This is where Faction Rank and Favor come into play. Faction Rank unlocks potent passive bonuses and the ability to purchase different types of Lenses to customize your Prophecies. Favor is used to buy these Prophecies for targeted farming of items of a specific type, as well as the Lenses used to modify them.

You can increase your Faction Rank by gaining experience through defeating enemies, completing quests, and participating in and completing more Prophecies. Favor is earned by slaying monsters, with the amount varying based on the experience the monster rewards. It can also be gained by completing quests and Prophecies. Generally, as you progress further into the game, you acquire more Favor.

Gaining more Faction Rank not only unlocks new Prophecies and tiers but also grants specific Rank Rewards for each tier and rank you achieve. In the Circle of Fortune, there are 10 Faction Ranks, each offering distinct rewards:
