I started off with the first Torchlight, playing the ranger/hunter type character (because she was the girl, and I’m like that) and randomly allocated spells and skills and numbers and figures and gear in a totally bizarre and incoherent nature. So, when the second game came out, I thought I should have a go at the co-op game, with someone who knew what they were doing.
Enter @huntarded. I decided steer away from the pistol ranger type class this time, and go with the engineer type class.
So I have!
This is my funky engineer;
currently dual wielding a claw and a massive hammer with which I do HUGE AMOUNTS OF FIERY DOOM damage. @huntarded is playing on a ranger (because he never plays on anything other than a hunter);
however his usefulness at telling me where to put skills points and skills is non existent, which means I am still throwing my points into skills at random (I realised the other day I’d put 7 points in a two-handed specialisation, whilst dual wielding) and increasing my skills at random, few points in strength, few in dexterity and whatnot.
But, despite dying 6 times in about 15 minutes yesterday (didn’t have a great run) and losing about 10,000 gold, I don’t seem to be doing too badly, although I’m not sure whether what seems to be a melee class is right for me. I’m tempted to reroll a mage and go with a ranged class.
