Got it through steam.

Then realized I hate steam.

Cancelled order with steam and got it directly through runic. (why the fuck would I play a game through steam which requires you to run their client all the time, F THAT)

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DIDN'T PLAY THE BETA.

Huge improvement from the beta.

Targeting works great, movement works great, auto-attack no longer ends for no reason.

THEY POLISHED THE GAME VERY NICELY SINCE BETA

bravo runic. GREAT GAME.

as said before

TL2 + GW2 + LoL = i can die in peace

This game is awesome. It's so much fun. There are so many gear upgrades and variations!

My little Engineer is a lot of fun. The healing bot is a must, I'm going to max that talent out.

I also got my first Unique 2 handed weapon...

Ok, I got a huge gripe with this game.

You cannot completely respec your talent points. You're only able to refund your last 3 points you spent.

That has got to be the lamest shit ever. I don't know what the developers were thinking on that.

I really hope they change it later on.

You can use a console command to refund them, though your character will show an exclamation point in multiplayer games signifying that you are a "cheater". There should be a mod out soon that will allow you to drink a potion that refunds your points. Don't worry, moddable game = play how you want.

Engineer is your "tanking" class primary us Vitality with Str/Dex as alternate. Focus is really lacking any scaling for the engineer at least what i've played.

Got through Act 1 with the outlander. The scaling so far was pretty good and I love the loot.

Too tempted to start another character though.... I keep picking up cool melee weapons.

I'm going mainly 2H DPS with my Engineer focusing on Strength, with Vitality as my second focus. I put points into the healing bot and, spider drones, and now the turret bot.

I tried a sword and shield and just didn't care for it much.

Speaking of shields... I love how the outlander can use a shield with a one handed gun. As well as how a melee outlander can be a killing machine.

They did a really good job with the classes so you're not always stuck with the class' favourite weapon if you want to be useful.

I'm playing a Construction/Aegis Engineer right now. 2h Cannon is primary, Mace/Board is swap set to get vitality up for max healing up with the bot/potion, or when kiting is not ideal.

What I do for kiting, is pop the Haste buff spell which increases attack and run speed, and then just keep casting spider bots. And throw a turret bot out if needed.

I'm almost done with Act 2 so far. The hardest boss fight I've come up against, of all things, was on a phase portal. In Act 2, it was a trio of Tar Sludge looking guys. They absolutely wrecked me. I did forget to buff my pet though on that fight also.

Overall, I'm impressed with this game. So much fun. I haven't even played multi player yet, I imagine that makes it that much better.

I am going 2H DPS Engineer, as well, though, I am taking a different route. My focus areas are passives and the gun bot, as when it comes out with the higher tiers, it will increase all of your damage for the entire duration that it is on the field.

Once I hit level 35 with my Engineer, my playstyle definitely became more lively (I purchased the charging ability that rushes you forward at your target and releases bolts, upon collision with the enemy, that give you back 5% of your mana for each enemy hit). Throw a concussion grenade, followed by some spider mines, charge in, and finish with the lightning cleave ability. Rinse and repeat until all enemies are neutralized.

I'm a 2H damage engineer as well. We're all the same kind of nerd, I guess. Focusing on Strength and Vitality, but added a bit of dex here and there for crits. Have health bot and bulwark, as well as more 2h weapon damage focus. Just started.

I love fishing! I caught a lot of different fish, and have tried some of them out. I have one that permenantly changes my pet, plus got a lot of loot from a goldfish. I spent probably 1/8 of my play time so far fishing.

Same focus stats wise, but I have put 0 points in Dex and about 25 or 30 in Focus. Focus increases your magic damage (along with maximum mana and execute (dual-wield double strike chance)), which the Engineer has plenty of Fire/Electric magic damage with his skills.

You found one that changed it permanently? Man, all the ones that I have caught have been five minutes or less changes. Though, I really would not want it to permanently change Professor Chaos the ferret anyways.

Yeah so far, I've found about 5 different fish that change my pet permanently.

You guys catch any gold fish yet? Those sell for a bunch of gold.

My first fish was a gold fish. I was thinking I got a low level crap fish. When I went to check them out, I smiled at my luck.

I think I am going to have to break down and give this game a try tonight. I'm still addicted to GW2 and haven't played anything else since that released but you all's enthusiasm for the game in this thread has me itching to try it. I was thinking of rolling an embermage, has anyone played one? Is it a fun class?

Really digging this game. It's basically what Diablo 3 should have been. The only difference though, is I can't make money off Torchlight, lol. I basically have to trade off having more fun for more chances at $$$.

Bitching, honestly. It's very Diablo 2 - esque. LAN support, internet matching, etc. It's basically Diablo 3 but allows for single & LAN play (ie. no lag).

Sounds more akin to Diablo 1, D2 open bnet... aka rampant hack fest? Is there any way to play with legits only?

It could very well be open hack fest. In fact, Torchlight 2 devs are planning to release kits so that people can make their own mods/environments/etc.

As for playing with legits only, I can't think of a guaranteed method...well, other than playing with friends. When me and friends used to join in on a D2 LAN party, nobody really used hacks. Going through a fun game on pure god mode just isn't fun.

When you modify anything on the game files you will get an exclamation mark (!) next your name.

I find that not true. I see a lot of people asking about there name having ! Next to it. When there isnt one.

Ah, is not next to the name. Is when they join the game. There is an (!) on that sentence.

I would say this game is wayyyyyy faster leveling than any diablo games. I bet you could beat normal 1-50 in a day. And then start 50-100 the next day. Thats if you play normal mode.

This game has lan, solo, internet mode. So, hacks will happen.

One thing i dislike is, you could only respec the last 3 points you put in to your skill tree. I dont think you could respec your char stats at all. Like str, dodge, focus, life.

-----------

What i dont get is.... do you get anything special playing higher diff thsn normal? What would elite mode give me?
