Restart your game

Sometimes it’s simply a matter of turning it off and turning it back on. If you find your loot filter isn’t filtering loot like it’s supposed to, exit out of your game and wait a few minutes. Then, reopen your game back up. This allows the game to do a reset and can fix the issue.

Update your loot filter

The most likely issue with your loot filter is that it’s not the most updated version of the loot filter. Regardless of what loot filter you have, since they’re external builds imported into the game, they don’t always update along with the game. Head to the loot filter’s page and import the most recent version of the loot filter.

With the release of 1.0, tons of loot filters got an upgrade.

Reimport the loot filter

There’s a chance that your loot filter could be broken and need to be reimported into the game. To do this, simply remove the loot filter and reimport it in your game. If there were any missing data, this would solve the problem and should get the loot filter back up and running.

Remove the loot filter from Last Epoch

If you’ve exhausted all other options, and the loot filter is still causing issues with your gameplay (such as causing loot to disappear), you may need to remove it entirely from the game. Simply remove the loot filter from the game, and any errors or bugs it’s causing should be fixed.

Chat with the creator

Loot filter creators for Last Epoch often post the latest updates for their filters through the official forums and on the subreddit for Last Epoch. You can leave comments if the loot filter isn’t working, and the creator will likely see it to try and can help you troubleshoot.

There are quite a few loot filters you can choose from when it comes to Last Epoch. If you find that one isn’t working for you, you can try others to still be able to filter loot.

What is a loot filter?

A loot filter allows you to remove loot from your view that isn’t important for you to see or pick up. While in the early game, the loot is manageable, in the endgame there is often simply too much loot to deal with. A loot filter filters out the loot that you don’t need by hiding their nameplates.

You can set the filters on your loot filter, so you can choose what you do see and what you don’t. All loot will still drop, but it will not have its nameplate pop up, so it won’t clog your screen.
