The Berserker is a surprising powerhouse of a character. While traditional warrior types are the standard tank characters, Berserker is more of a barbarian, dealing out phenomenally powerful attacks based on rage alone. It’s also one of the fastest damage dealers, capable of blindingly fast speed due to claw synergies.

The subject of our third Torchlight II class guide is the Embermage — an absolute powerhouse. While traditionally one of the weaker character classes, its ability to bring out masses of sustained damage over large swathes of enemies is practically unparalleled. Outlander might be able to do an amazing hit every now and then, but you can do almost as good numbers every time you hit.

From the most flexible character in Torchlight II — the Engineer — we switch to the least, the Outlander. The Outlander has a problem in that the requirement for its weapons is dexterity, but damage is based off of strength, and as such there is only one viable core build that works in elite difficulties.
Having said this, Outlander can be an incredible blast to play, so we will throw in a super-serious build for those elite players, as well as a fun build that you can essentially make your own for as long as it continues to work.

Today marks the first instalment of our Torchlight II build guides, beginning with the editor-in-chief’s personal favourite — the Engineer. In this guide we’ll explore two different possible builds, describe the sort of gear you’ll need, where to put your points, and how to play. Let’s kick it off.

My eyes are gritty and I’m not regulating my body temperature too well. It’s a sure sign that I haven’t slept enough in a while. As an insomniac I’m used to the sore eyes and fatigue sweats, but today there are some lovely extra symptoms nagging me. My lower back is killing me, and depending on which way I hold my neck I get a stabbing pain in the back of my head. I haven’t felt this way in over a decade, since days passed unnoticed outside as I was first playing Diablo II. I have all the warning signs of loot fatigue and it doesn’t look as though it will be getting better any time soon.
