First, sorry about not posting since a long time now. It’s summer here and hot and this makes me really lazy. I have not forgotten about this page, I still love it and will never abandon ❤
And now to the topic, Torchlight 2, another hack&slay game and as mentioned in the title, I play it modded..!
So here we have the mod list in the order I play them. In Torchlight 2 the mod order seems quite important.
Ok. Let’s see what we’ve got:
#1 Enhanced Retex Part I + II
To say it short, it’s a rework of the ingame textures. I’ve seen a few screenshots and liked it instantly, so I got this one.
#2 Synergies All Addons
This mod combines addons for the popular Synergies mod. I don’t really know exactly what it all covers but as example some beautiful beams from items on the ground.
#3 LAO 2.0 Chaos Edition
So this one is funny. Original affixes have been removed and items spawn with random ones. I always love random stuff, so a must-take for me :D! Further it seems to balance out 1handed and 2handed weapons.
#4 Arkham’s & Ripper’s Armory
Some additional equipment with great skins!
#5 SynergiesMOD Compatible Torchlight 2 Essentials
A collection of smaller mods which can be used along with the big synergies mod. I couldn’t yet find a list but saw ingame stuff I wanted to have before, like the gold chest (a locked gold chest spawning in a map, the key is being dropped by monsters of the same map), or better (larger) inventory, more pets, classes, etc.
#6 Synergies MOD
Now here we are, the Synergies Mod! Said to be an overhaul and balance making to Torchlight 2. For more infos you maybe want to browse on their site: http://www.synergiesmod.com/
#7 Far East Pack 1+2
My favourite and my bread and butter! This one brings some awesome classes into the game, with awesome styles, awesome weapons, awesome equip and overall alot of awesomeness ;D
I personally love to play the Kensai class! So yea, another MUST-HAVE!
And here is, what I’ve been talking about, my beloved Kensai! + DAT Samurai Sword ❤
On this picture low level. I had her higher yet, on veteran difficulty tho. After a while I decided to leave her and remake her in elite difficulty.
Btw, it is not always necessary to remake a char to change difficulty. You can do it through a console comment. However, I'd feel like cheating + I wanted the experience from the begin, so I just remade her.
And finally I’ve got here a nice example of one of the modded weapons ingame. The legendary drop is still rare tho. And those of you who know german language, can even see the random affixes, the weapon has now. I will try to think of changing the language into english next time, sorry about that!!
So.. back to gaming :3
Btw, I highly recommend this mod combination, it’s alot of fun!
So me and my army went today to (finally) farm the new (season-exclusive I think?) Legendary Gems..
After reading about the early ending of season 2 (and me not at all prepared, my witch doctor still like zero damage .-.)
So… I will be honest. I don’t like this.
Either if there weren’t season exclusive items, then okay. For competition, that’s great.
But now… if you actually only got a few weeks to get those + are a casual player.. well then you will need to play all time on your seasonal hero unless you’re exceptionally lucky.
And what for you get those shiny new items after all?
There will be like 5 “free” days until the new season begins.. Just to begin to grind again on seasonal exclusive stuff, while the hard-earned legendaries from before are gathering dust in the normal storage which won’t be used anyway for another few weeks.
Well, but learning from it.. For the next season I will consider well, which items I really want. Then trying to get them asap but not waste more time as absolutely necessary on the seasonal hero.
So, there is another pixel dungeon game I really love to play! It has very similar graphics to Quest of Dungeons tho, as they are using the same sprite pack.
Overture covers 24(!) character classes btw! That’s sure alot, so from time to time I will just introduce one of them.
What else offers this game?
- Tons of Loot! And I mean TONS OF LOOT. That’s all shiny and glittering, makes awesome bling! sounds when picking up and you might feel like christmas, birthday and eastern just together!
- Bosses. There are Mini Bosses, there are Elite Monsters. There are Guardians and last but not least the Final Boss of each stage. Some are easier, others are quite hard and also require abit of luck, to be able to beat them!
- Dungeons are generated randomly.
- 16bit sounds and graphics!
- Random enchantments on weapons and items!
Now let’s begin today with a basic class: The Ranger.
Every class got 2 skills. One with the left mouse buttom, the other skill, which usually consumes mana, is on the right buttom.
The Ranger’s basic skill with the left mouse buttom:
- “Shoot a single arrow. Gain mana on hit.”
And on his right mouse buttom:
- “Fire a volley of sharpened arrows.
So I think this is pretty self explained. From own experience I can say, the Ranger has an awesome Attack Range and great damage with his skill on the right. However, he has no escape and is quite squishy. So better get them before they get to you!
I’ve played abit with him today, so I could show you some ingame screens:
interested in more infos? Here’s the official trailer :3
The game is available on Steam btw!
