Endless Beginner's Guide — Starting the Ember Technology Era

Post a Comment

The past few years have been a rollercoaster ride for Torchlight fans, from project cancellations to other projects with nowhere to go. That’s not to say that the block’s new kid, Torchlight: Infinite, isn’t worth your attention, though. So far this game looks pretty delicious as a new entry in the Torchlight series and a worthy addition to your Android library without needing access to the best Android phones.

Expect tons of customization, tons of systems to get your hands dirty, and plenty of content to test your understanding of the game’s unique ARPG mechanics. This is why we created a guide to explain all the underlying mechanics to ensure everyone is on an equal footing after Torchlight: Infinite launches worldwide this October. is.

getting started

Choosing your first build is important in Torchlight: Infinite. Your initial class/character will determine your strengths and weaknesses, but unlocking customizations will tailor your class/character to a modifiable playstyle.

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 playstyle and is anchored behind a hero trait. However, outside of class and hero traits, you can play around with talents to fine-tune your class to suit your gameplay preferences. A typical Summoner class that fights by your side, Divineshot relies on ranged attacks to deal damage and force enemies to dodge barrage projectiles on the map. The Spacetime Witness is a technical class that specializes in space-time magic and seeks 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 fire and ice mage who can launch powerful attacks against enemies.

Eventually, 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.

Hero characteristics

Your first class comes with free hero traits (unique appearances and abilities). Unlock more hero traits through paid boon systems and in-game achievements. To change the hero’s characteristics, you need to create a new character. Traits are fixed behind the character and cannot be changed during the game. If you want to play with new hero traits, it’s a good idea to mix and match characters each playthrough.

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. Every zone spawns 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 your character build, 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 and deal extra cold damage when you hit an enemy.

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-1

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 Forget 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.

Torchlight: Loot an enemy in Infinite

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

Ever since Diablo Immortal arrived on Android, people have been starving for sophisticated ARPG alternatives, which could rule out the known greedy monetization practices that valuable Blizzard mobile titles have kept. Although it’s early days, Torchlight: Infinite’s gameplay is polished enough to be worthy of Diablo Immortal. Currently accepting pre-registration; that’s why we’ve provided a link to the Google Play Store. This will allow you to sign up and be ready when the game finally launches in October.
