Endless Beginner's Guide — Starting the Ember Technology Era

Post a Comment

The Torchlight series has had a bumpy road over the past few years, from the cancellation of the first mobile project to the fate of Torchlight 3 being locked in development hell. After an early look at Torchlight: Infinite, the new action-RPG coming to Android, it’s safe to say that things are finally looking good. We’re getting closer and closer to playing quality Torchlight games on our phones.

Expect tons of customization, tons of systems to get your hands dirty, and content that tests your thorough understanding of the game’s unique ARPG mechanics. This is why we at Techvair are here to lay the groundwork. To ensure that everyone is on an equal footing when Torchlight: Infinite launches worldwide, we’re providing a practical beginner’s guide.

getting started

When you start a new playthrough, you will be asked to select one of your first characters/classes. As you start unlocking more customization tools, you’ll be able to tailor your character/class’s playstyle to your liking.

There are currently five character classes to choose from.

  • Berserker Rehan Torchlight: Berserker of Infinite
  • moto commander
  • Divine Shot Carino TI Commander TI-Divineshot
  • frost fire gemma
  • Oracle Thea
  • Like a space-time witness TI-Frost Fire TI-Time Witness

Each character class excels at a particular play style, so you should choose and craft your class carefully to match your gameplay preferences. Berserkers, for example, are the primary melee combat specialists, while Commanders are your typical Summoner class, utilizing mecha minions to fight by your side. Forces you to dodge a barrage of projectiles. A Spacetime Witness is a technical class that specializes in space-time magic, seeking to exploit gaps to perform deadly attacks. Another hero, Oracle Sia, is depicted as a goddess skilled in magic. Then there’s Frostfire, a dual-wielding mage of fire and ice who can launch powerful attacks against enemies.

Ultimately, you’ll try every character through new playthroughs to complete the achievements associated with each class. So don’t be too embarrassed about which character to start with. Expect to juggle multiple.

Gameplay expectations

Torchlight: Infinite is optimized for touchscreen controls, allowing you to freely move your character model using an on-screen joystick while navigating the map. A desired marker appears in the map zone to aid navigation. All zones spawn enemy hoards that drop randomized loot that is important to your preparation. Warp points allow you to move from one zone to another during quests and explorations. Eventually, we’ll unlock more areas on the world map to make it easier to fast travel between locations.

Tips: Always return to Ember’s Rest to visit the shop and store extra items.

A good portion of the playthrough at the start follows the main storyline.


With 24 unique skill trees that provide over 180 skills for character builds, Torchlight: Infinite is sure to impress ARPG fans with a wealth of customization options. To further customize your skills, you can unlock different playstyles for each character class.

skill slot

As you gain energy, you gain skill slots. Energy can be obtained by leveling up characters and equipping/enhancing gear. Beat all the bad guys on the map to earn enough experience points and earn loot to unlock more slots!

Skill type

Skills can be further classified by type. Support Skills, Active Skills, Passive Skills, and Trigger Skills. Skills can also be linked together. Active and passive skills are linked to support skills, and trigger skills can be linked to active and support skills. To identify a support skill, tap the skill icon and see the tags. Support skills are tagged with “Support”.

TI Skill Tag

As a new player, always keep an eye out for linked support skills. You can add utility to potentially active skills and increase their damage potency. An example is the addition of “freeze chances” that provide utility and damage. Adding “Freeze Chance” to your Cold Damage skill gives you a small chance to add a slow effect when hitting an enemy and deal additional cold damage.

Skills can be acquired by completing quests that offer a choice of skills as a reward, or by visiting the skill shop in Hideout.

Tips: Don’t forget to visit the skills menu to upgrade as you kill more enemies.




You can select up to 3 talent panels for your character. Talent panels are unlocked by leveling up. There are 6 basic talent panels to choose from at the start.

  • god of power
  • goddess of hunting
  • goddess of knowledge
  • god of war
  • goddess of darkness
  • machine god

Torchlight: Infinite Talents Overview

Each of the 6 Basic Talent Panels contains 3 Advanced Talent Panels that can be selected after unlocking the second Talent Panel. Advanced talent panels contain more specialized stat buffs and substantial bonuses when you invest enough talent points into that panel.

TI-Advanced Talent-2

The third talent panel doesn’t limit your talent panel selection, but we recommend sticking with the advanced talent panel to focus on your intended build. You should choose your basic talent panel carefully, noting the tags mentioned in Talent Panel Overview. For example, if you want your Frostfire character to be a pure spellcaster, check Goddess of Knowledge to increase INT stats and spell her potency/mana.

talent node

Under the Talent Panel of your choice, you can delegate Talent Points (obtained by leveling up) to unlock Talent Nodes. A talent node holds her micro talents and enhances her stats. Multiple talent points committed to a talent node can unlock adjacent nodes. You can also unlock major talent nodes if you have invested enough talent points.

Torchlight: Infinite Talent Node

Activated talent nodes can be reset using Oblivion Points (obtained through Water of Oblivion). You can reset up to level 70 for free.

New players should stick to a few nodes at a time to enhance their intended character build. Feel free to experiment with the early builds to your heart’s content.

get ready

You can open your bag to equip your gear. Nine gear slots are available for tinkering. Enemies drop gear randomly on the map, so always grab all the loot. As you progress through the story and level up, your enemies will level up and so will the loot they drop.

As a new player you don’t have to worry about finding the best gear right away. Be prepared to trade your old lower item level equipment (such as white or blue) for new higher level items (such as purple) with better stats.



Tips: Look for character builds and synergistic affixes (stats), prioritizing survivability stats and energy shield increases to increase survivability.

How to playtest Torchlight: Infinite

Torchlight: Infinite has a lot of potential. It could very well be one of the best ARPGs to land on Android this year, and it’s already coming close to delivering a level of polish to Diablo Immortal in its gameplay (and its greedy monetization practices. may be left at the door). So far, the developers seem focused on reviving the magic behind the Torchlight brand, offering an alternative to monetizing Diablo Immortal to feed their hacking and slashing addiction. It’s helpful. Currently accepting pre-registrationplayers who want to get into the action early should mark their calendars for Torchlight: Infinite’s planned open beta date in October 2022.
