  • Time Warp: Time slows down, reducing attack, casting and movement speed by 70% for 6 sec. Epoch also attacks a party member three times in quick succession during this.
  • Time Stop: Stuns the whole party for 2–3 seconds. Stun duration affected by talents which reduce stun effects. (Heroic Only)


Typical tank and spank encounter but with some things to look out for. Curse of Exertion should be decursed from the healer asap to avoid the healer going oom mid-fight. Healers should watch out for the party member getting attacked during Time Warp.

  • Chrono-Lord Epoch shares his name with the time machine Epoch in the 1995 Square Enix game Chrono trigger for the SNES. (Later re-made on other systems.) His line "There is no future for you" is also a quote from the game.
  • Epoch (εποχη) is also a Greek word that refers to a cessation or fixed point of time, while his title is derived from the Greek word "χρονος" (chronos), meaning "time." He shares this title with Chrono Lord Deja.
