Early in the game, move effectively to survive and proceed in the game. Torchlight: Infinite has been good in polishing the movement ability although it is an ARPG. Dodge enemy attacks, use your basic attack and skills effectively to deal damage and quickly clear the maps.

Mastering your Character

  • Commander Moto – summoner class fighter who summons minions to fight alongside with him

Note: The player will have the option of pre-hero trade from achievements and paid boon system which will offer them the ability to unlock more hero cheats.

Understanding your Skills

The best thing about this ARPG is the skill system, where there are 24 skill trees with 180 skills available to customize your character build to your preferred playstyle, no matter the class of Hero you have picked. Skill slots are unlocked by acquiring energy, which is earned by leveling up characters and equipping/improving gear. To do so, always get the drops after defeating enemy hoards.

Skills are further categorized into four types: support skills, active skills, passive skills, and trigger skills. These skills can be linked to each other like active and passive skills can be linked to support or trigger can be linked to active and support skills. To identify a skill and tap on the skill icon to know the details about the skill. Skills can be unlocked as you go on exploring and completing quests. Else you can also choose skills by visiting the skill shop at the Hideout.

Utilizing your Gears

Gears are items dropped randomly by defeating enemies. Equipping these gears will help in boosting your character build, hence always look for equipping gear that helps in complimenting your character build. There are a total of Nine gear slots available for trying out. At the start, there won’t be much better item drops, but once the enemies level up, the drops would be better.

ARPG has the essence of looting items, by defeating enemies repeatedly to help build your character. Make sure to collect all the items and check that you are equipped with all the items. The equipment dropped has different tires and hence the stat increasing ability. The further you level up, the better equipment drops would be there.

Introducing Talents

Torchlight: Infinite offers Six talent panels further strengthen your build of the character. As a player, you choose up to three talent panels to boost the stats of your build. The six talent panels are as:

  • God of Might
  • Goddess of Hunting
  • Goddess of Knowledge
  • God of War
  • Goddess of Darkness
  • God of Machines

Each talent panel further has three advanced panels which can be later selected. Advanced talent panels are more specialized buffs and also offer some bonuses too.

These advanced talent panels will be available when enough talent points are provided to the basic talent panel. The talent panel is to be selected carefully so as to have a synergy effect with your existing build. To know more about a talent panel, just tap and check the overview of the talent panel.

Knowing the Pets and Pactspirits

Pets and Pactspirits are there to boost your stats, give bonus experience, and drops. These pets can only be obtained through the Boon system of the game (Gacha system) using Primocryst currency. These Prymocryst are obtained through completing weekly quests, battle pass rewards, or real money. Pets and Pactspirits are not essential for the game, but they definitely make things easier during the battle.

Final Thoughts

Torchlight: Infinite has brought a lot of content to the table, with a lot of exploration to be done. The flexibility to almost create your own character with your preferred playstyle is something not very easily available in most ARPG games. But this simultaneously makes things difficult for many, to carefully understand the skills, talents, and gears to use them in synergy and build a strong character.

It is also important to balance between offense and defense stats, so as to effectively clear the maps. Torchlight: Infinite certainly has made things interesting with a lot of offerings, and gameplay content., making it one of the anticipated games of the year. Don’t hesitate to give it a try and never forget to refer to this Torchlight: Infinite beginners guide for advice if you run into problems.
