What are Epochs for in Order and Chaos (With Epoch Dust)
In OAC, everyone wants to know what Epochs are for. Its pretty simple, Epochs are a special material used to create epics. Maybe you've noticed, but the most powerful players are wearing epics (the gear with purple names). Unless, you PVP like a boss, you won't get epics without Epochs.
I think you might find that it's difficult to PVP like a boss without epics. Since only some epics drop from dungeons, you will rely on crafting blue tier sets into the epic pieces. One of the ingredients in the recipe for your epics is Essence of Epoch. You will also need special materials reinforced with red, green and yellow runes (which depends on class).
There are three types of Epochs in the game
- Essence of Epoch
- Fragments of Epoch
- Epoch Dust
You won't be able to make use of them until you are level 70. You want to hang on to these things, treat them like gold, save them in your bag and make sure to keep them because you're going to need every single one you can get your hands on.
Let's talk more about what Epochs are, then how to get them.
Essence of Epoch, Fragment of Epoch, Dust of Epoch
The newest edition to the epoch club is called dust of epoch. It drops from the end bosses of legs. The dust is not an item you need to roll on.
You pick it up when you pick up your hero emblems, mechnical gears and soul signents.
- Three dust of epoch make one fragment of epoch
- Three fragments of epoch make one essence of epoch
For now, there is no book to transform epoch dust in to fragments of epochs. Instead there is a new vendor to trade with.
The vendor is located under a tree near the main foundtian in Greenmont. She is just around the corner from the pet vendor.
You buy one fragment for three dust.
To craft an essence of epoc from three fragment of epochs, you will need to have Legendary level 70 crafting.
Once you get your crafting up, you can purchase the Epoch pattern from dark elf adherents found in, and just outside, of Coldring. You can also find then outside of the Metal Ziggurat in Tandland, the Under Realm.
You need 20 mechanical gears to purchase the pattern for essence of epoch.

Where To Get Epochs
Essence of Epoch can be obtained in for ways, where Fragment of Epoch can be obtained in three ways. Getting Epochs without paying runes is easier than ever before.
Essence of Epoch and Fragments of Epoch Drop from the end bosses of MZL and AGL, dungeons found in the Under Realm. They do not drop every time, but there is a fair drop rate. Now, some jerk tanks like to intentionally get there healer and other teammates killed on purpouse, so the they don't have to share. If you find these jerks don't ever run with them. There are other tanks or there who do play by the rules.
Fragments of Epochs and Essence of Epochs can also be obtained by completing certain achievements. Some crafting achievements award with them, and some of the tier 1&2 rewards are Epochs or fragments. You can look under your characters achievements to find the rewards to know which ones will give you an Epoch or a fragment.
You can also soon Epochs and Fragments in events. The green icon in the upper right hand corner will take you to the current events. You can click on each event to find out what its rewards are. Sometimes you will need to be in the top 10 and sometimes you just need to be in a top 50 to win an Epoch our Fragment.
If all else fails, then you can buy Essence of Epoch in the Nick Shop under Extras. I know there had been a rumor that Epochs were going to be removed from the Nick Shop. There was even at time after update when the Epochs vanished from the Nickn Shop.
However, there are Epochs in the Nick Shop right now. I'm not sure what that was about or why they vanished from the Nick Shop. But they're back. Either it was a mistake, or people were too upset about them removing them, and they put them back.
There are a lot of people who don't mind supplementing Epochs by spending runes at the Nick Shop. So, I don't think we will see Epochs going anywhere soon. However, gameloft has given us many great ways to get them ourselves.

A Note and an Appology
I just want to remind my readers that I do not work for Gameloft. I am not affiliated with them. I am just a player who provides commentary on the game. I know some of you were very upset when another popular OAC site had readers under the impression that it was an official page. It's not, I even believed this lie and referred some of you there, and for that I am sorry. I will be removing a links to the page, as I don't support liers and cheaters.
