First, the following tests have all been done with a Level 2 Berserker with no skillpoints or stat points invested on the dummy in the Estherian Enclave. Critical hits and fumbled attacks are completely excluded from every calculation aswell as attacks from both claws at the same time. Secondly, this was an interesting thing to test and I'll have to explain ...

There is a way to respec, up to a point. You have the option to respec your 3 most recently spent skill points. This means that you can invest a little into a combo of skills that you want to try, and if you do not like it you can claim up to three points back. To get a respec visit the NPC in Estherian Enclave, the first town you will find, who will ...

Fame is, like your experience, a statistic you acquire as you play. While you only get experience from killing regular enemies, killing champions (purple health bars) bosses (orange health bars) and completing quests will also grant you some fame. When you get enough fame to level it up, you gain 1 additional skill point. There are 32 fame levels.

The level cap is 100 and the fame cap is 33. You get 100 skill points from the levelling process and another 33 from levelling up your fame level so I expect the maximum number of skill points available is 133 assuming there are no quests which grant skill points directly and no other mitigating circumstance. It is worth noting that it takes 100 skill ...

I am going to attempt to catalog the phase beast challenges that I am aware of. At the moment, I have a list of 14 challenges. Let me know if you know of any corrections or additions that need to be made here, and I'll add them. I've finally added the challenges added in 1.17. Act 1 (6 Challenges) Stay Close to Raise the Totems - Stand close to each of ...

On the Arcane Statistics screen (bottom of the left character information screens, press J by default), you can see the Adjusted Range of your currently equipped weapon(s) once you have expanded the Right/Left Hand Weapon section. Here is the display for one of my Embermage's wands (which apparently has a range of 7.2m): Using this information you should ...

Having played Torchlight 1 and now some of 2, I'd say there's little benefit to having finished T1 for T2. The stories are only vaguely connected at the very beginning and there's no T1 spoilers in T2 so far. The T1 story was very small and narrow, T2 has a relatively broader scope, but it's still not very story driven. Neither will finishing T1 help you ...

Disabling Steam Cloud Synchronization It is unfortunate that you have to play two different characters on those computers, however if you are happy with this to be the solution, all you need to do is the following: Right click on Torchlight II in your games list and select Properties On the Updates tab, you will find a setting for disabling Steam Cloud ...

Yes you can! The system works pretty much in an identical manner to Diablo II if you've ever played it. In order to assign abilities to a function key, expand your secondary abilities (abilities used on right click) by clicking on the ability icon on the right hand side of your action bar, hover over the ability you wish to assign, and press the function ...

There are 2 possibilities as far as i know. Use the console: Bring up the console and type RESETSKILLS to reset all your skills. Remember however, this may flag your account as suspicious in Multiplayer! How to enable the console in Torchlight II Overview of all the commands in Torchlight II Use a shared stash savefile: There's a shared stash ...

The rule is very simple, these combinations provide a chance to Execute: Melee + melee Ranged + ranged Magic + magic The last 2 basically means you can use a Pistol + Pistol to Execute, but not a Pistol + Wand. You would need a Wand + Wand combination to have a chance on Execute. So you can use Sword + Axe or Sword + Claw and they will all give you a ...

The Transmuter will take one unsocketed item (even magic or enchanted) + 2 gems of equal or greater level (to the unsocketed item) to consume the gems and place a socket on the item. As Rilgon Arcsinh pointed out, there is a small chance for an enchanter to add a socket to an item when asked to enchant it. Of course, this will use up one of the limited ...

Enchanting is very different from what was found in Torchlight 1. Enchanting adds magical properties that can also be removed (deliberately) by an enchanter. But enchanting can no longer wipe an item; that is, enchanting cannot affect existing stats in any way. The removal mechanic exists so you can spend gold to get an item "just right".

Find an enemy called Bittersprite on the same map as the Locked Golden Chest. Bittersprite looks like a large wasp or hornet. It is not necessarily near the chest, it can be anywhere on the map. You can see it floating in the top-right area of this screenshot: Kill the Bittersprite and it will drop a Golden Key. The key will not appear in your inventory ...

According to this wiki, all pets are equal. However, different fish produce different properties when fed to your pet.

It's the game's subtle way of saying you can't combine gems anymore. You will find more gems as you play and they will become more powerful as you progress. You can't combine gems to make better gems. You can't combine gems that are already socketed. Socketed gems are locked into the gear you put it into. You can either choose to recover the gem or recover ...

There are 4 difficulties: Casual, Normal, Veteran, and Elite, and in addition a hardcore mode. Can be seen on this video at around 2:50. As the official site states: Since there are no real benefits for picking hard difficulties other than fun (you don’t get better loot), you are free to play the game how you most enjoy. If you like being overpowered… ...

There is no way to increase your basic inventory size (note: mods could change that in the future). However, there are two stashes in town: the personal stash and the shared stash. The shared stash is accessible by every character on your account. In the starting town the two stashes are near the top-most exit; each stash looks like a chest but their ...

I really wanted to disprove your statement as it was hard for me to accept that a human could be doing things faster than how it was implemented in the game, however, you're right. To test this, I did something relatively easy. I've gotten myself a level 1 Outlander, dualwielded the pistols you start with (they fire every 0.88 second) and went to the dummy ...

Easy enough to test, or so I thought. My initial approach was to create as many characters as possible, but at a count of 25 I quit: A second approach was to dig in the Runic Games forums and even there, nothing seemed to be found about the maximum amount of characters one can have. Until I found this post: What is the Maximum Number of Characters I ...

While item colors in such games usually follow a similar pattern they can be quite different from game to game. Torchlight 2 uses the following pattern: White (Common): This are standard item, usually without any special properties or bonuses. Green (Enchanted): These items have at least one magical property/bonus. Blue (Rare): These items usually offer ...

That is your character's Charge Bar, which is filled by attacking or damaging enemies (check the hover-text description for your class, it seems to vary). Normal attacks always seem to add charge and so will most skills as well - a skills' description will explicitly state when that skill doesn't add charge to the bar, so watch out for that. Note that for ...

You simply must wait for the circle to turn purple. You'll hear a sound too. Often, the circle will go very close to becoming the right size, only to enlarge later, so don't be fooled by that. The circle will normally remain purple for a second or two, so you have plenty of time to react to the color and the sound without resorting to guesswork. So don't ...

To teach your pet a spell, put the spell into your Pet's spell inventory (press P to open the Pet Panel, and then select spells); Once the spell is in your pet's inventory, simply right click on it in order to teach it to your pet. The tooltip is still worded as though your character will learn it, but as long as the ability is in your pet's spell window, ...

I found it in the area "The Sundered Battlefield". There is a small instance called 'Notch's Mine', which contains a few creepers. It is worth keeping in mind that since Torchlight 2's areas are put together randomly, it could be anywhere.

Okay, so feel free to edit this. Do secret rooms exist in the "main world" or only in instances? I have only found secret rooms in instanced dungeons. Is there a limit of how many secret rooms that can be generated for each area/instance? So far, I think I have have found a max of 3 secret rooms in a single floor inside of a dungeon. Those were real ...

I happened to just start NG+ (after safely backing up all my save files ofcourse), and you start out again in the 1st Act, in the 1st town (I forgot the name). You can still travel to the Mapworks by using (any) Waypoint Portal.

NG+1 starts at level 51. NG+2 starts at level 81. NG+3 starts at level 100. NG+4 starts at level 120. NG+5 starts at level 120 too. So yeah, it appears there's no end to how many times you can NG+ — but there's also no point. These numbers are fixed. If your character has a higher level than 51 at the start of NG+ (my Engineer was level 54 when he ...

When you kill purple monsters (aka champions) you get fame. Fame is like a second experience bar that when full, grants another skill point to assign. The levels have names like unknown, remarkable, etc. I'm guessing that you are just starting the game and currently your fame is low and is labeled bad. This isn't a negative thing, just currently the name ...
