Last Epoch update 1.0.3 patch notes: Skill changes, stash cost reductions, bird caws nerf

Patrick Dane
The Marksman Mastery for Rogue in Last Epoch

Last Epoch Patch 1.0.3 is here, bringing with it changes to skills, reducing stash tab costs, and, of course, nerfing the sound of bird noises. 

Last Epoch has continued its successes out of early access, giving ARPG players something to rally around. The game has already challenged heavyweights in the genre Diablo 4 and Path of Exile and is blazing its own identity. It’s down to you to choose between the five classes and help rid the world of all manner of nasties while finding the best loot to do it. 

Eleventh Hour Games has promised to continue to support the game for years to come, and we’ve already seen that with multiple patches since the 1.0 launch. It’s time for another one too. 

The latest patch takes aim at some skill changes across classes, as well as reducing stash tab costs, allowing you to hoard a little more. Oh, and falcons will be cawing a lot less, so you can save your ears a little distress. 

Last Epoch 1.0.3 patch notes

last epoch servers buckle



  • Moved Transition to Temporal Sanctum from The Ruined Coast so it’s not as easy to accidentally transition after combat.


  • Changed Cloud Gatherer to only apply to any individual Smoke Bomb one time.
  • Wandering Spirits now has 30% more spirit reveal frequency
  • Wandering Spirits now has a base of damage of 20 (from 16.2) and damage effectiveness of 200% (from 180% actual, 140% listed)
    • These are compensatory buffs that were intended to be included alongside the change in 1.0 that made Wandering Spirits always fade out when the reveal duration ends, but the buff did not make it into release. Since the initial change was a nerf and did make it into 1.0, and this compensatory buff was always planned to be paired with the change, we’re adding the buff in this patch instead of waiting for the next cycle.


  • Added “Localization” type to in-game bug reporting tool
  • Improved player to player trade user experience so that you can no longer request a trade which requires a higher rank than the potential buyer possesses.


  • Reduced the frequency of the Falcon’s CAWWWWs (attack vocal sounds)
  • Updated audio for Healing Hands
  • All chapter 6 scenes have new 2D ambient loop sfx
  • The Barren Aqueduct has new music
  • Soul Cage props in chap 6 have looping sounds again
  • The Barren Aqueduct and Nests of the Fallen now have sounds for the running water on the ground in the aqueduct
  • The large running water props in chapter 8 now have sfx
  • Added looping sfx to the large rusty pipelines that cross the map


  • Reduced cost of Stash Tabs
    • Stash tabs beyond the first 6 previously cost 10000 more than the previous tab. Now stash tabs 7 to 16 cost 2500 more than the previous tab, and stash tabs beyond the first 16 cost 5000 more than the previous tab. This results in the cost of large numbers of stash tabs being reduced by around 50%.
