Last Epoch: AFK Detection Improved in Latest Update

Hotfix 0.9.1c Eleventh Hour Games

Do you find yourself constantly being booted from Last Epoch even though you've just been away for several minutes? Well, Hotfix 0.9.1c has improved the AFK detection system so you no longer get disconnected unexpectedly.

So, what are the changes? Interacting with the UI, pressing buttons, moving the mouse, and other things involving input will now prevent you from being flagged as AFK by the system. The developers also increased the threshold to 20 minutes, giving you more than enough time to provide input before you get kicked out for not interacting with the game.

Hotfix 0.9.1 contains some needed bug fixes as well. The developers noted in a previous patch that the Item Linking feature was not working as intended. They cited that there was a configuration issue between their testing environment and the live environment that needed to be resolved.

The good news is that item linking now works normally in Hotfix 0.9.1c. Item linking in Last Epoch is done by pressing and holding the CTRL key and then right-clicking on the items that you want to link to the chat. Up to three items can be linked at a time.

Patch Notes


  • Because the Increase Chance to Find Potions affix was having no effect before, we're being cautious with the total amount that it can give. The maximum value at T5 has been reduced to 60% (from 70%) and the maximum amount at T7 has been reduced to 120% (from 140%). Additionally it can no longer roll on rings and any existing potion drop rate affixes on rings have been changed to armor affixes (the armor affix can still not roll on rings naturally).
  • Reduced Bolroth Stomp hitbox size especially at the sides of the Bolroth.
  • Bolroths now stop turning (finalize target) 0.35 seconds into their Stomp attack. Previously they could turn right until the end.
  • Regular enemies in Monolith Ambushes gain 15% more health (from 10% more damage and 5% less health).
  • Bosses in Monolith Ambushes gain 5% more damage and 5% less health (from 10% more damage and 5% less health)
  • Minibosses in Monolith Ambushes gain 20% more damage and 150% more health (from 40% more damage and 150% more health)
  • The Osprix Monolith Ambush contains 1 fewer lightmage.
  • Added final 2d art for Pillager's Gold, Ambitions of an Erased Acolyte, and Gambit of an Erased Rogue.
  • Improved the quality of the preview images for the Soul Eater cosmetic armor set.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where Weaver's Will items upgrading caused a performance stutter.
  • Fixed a bug where parties would sometimes incorrectly use US East for their server region rather than the desired region.
  • Fixed a bug where the Burning Daggers created by Cinder Strike's Firebreathing were not affected by the Pillager's Gold unique.
  • Fixed a bug where the Increased Chance to Find Potions affix had no effect. This stat only worked when provided by the unique affixes of The Scavenger and Melvern's Writ or by passive tree nodes. This bug also impacted the Pillager's Gold unique.
  • Fixed Wraith and Volatile Zombie minions from party members having minimap icons.

Last Epoch Hotfix 0.9.1c is available on PC.
