How to Unlock Item Fractions in Last Epoch - Meeting Zerrick

You can only unlock the Item Factions once you reach the city of Maj’Elka. You’ll naturally go there during Chapter 9 of the game’s main story, so you can’t miss it!

Once you reach Maj’Elka, make your way to the Upper Districts at the center of town and meet Zerrick.

He’ll tell you about the Circle of Fortune at the Observatory and the Merchant’s Guild at the Bazaar. This will unlock both locations for you within Maj’Elka!

While in the Upper Districts of Maj’Elka, take the top-left exit to go to the Bazaar or the top-right exit to go to the Observatory.

As soon as you reach the hub for the faction you want to join, find the faction leader near the entrance. They will have a marker above their head, making them easy to spot.

Speak to them and choose to join their faction and you’re all set!

If you’re still wondering what these Item Factions do, though, here’s a basic breakdown:

  • Circle of Fortune – This is the self-found faction. They will improve your loot chances and quality, making it easier to find better items by yourself. You can also complete Prophecies to get specific items.
  • Merchant’s Guild – This is the trading faction. Joining them will allow you to perform trades at the Bazaar. You can use the stalls at the Bazaar to either buy or sell items.

It’s also important to know that your selection isn’t permanent; you can switch factions later on if you want. Your Ranks will be kept even after you switch back and forth!
