Essential improvements[edit]


Advantage Torchlight II is designed to be extremely friendly and open to modders and has an extensive and strong modding community. Almost everything can be modded in; from translations, graphics and sound to maps and classes.
Advantage Torchlight II has Steam Workshop Integration
More information Torchlight II comes with its own editor called GUTS. It allows map, items and story modding. Mods are usable in multiplayer, as long as everyone in the game has the same mods. It can be downloaded from Steam under Library in the tools section.


The SynergyMOD is a complete conversion mod for Torchlight II. SynergyMOD adds new gear, monsters, quests, pets, dungeons and more. Also adds a whole new class called the Necromancer and two other classes who are still in alpha stage, the Warlock and Paladin. It's in active development.

More information can be found on their website and Steam Workshop page

Disadvantage If you have your primary and secondary mouse buttons swapped in Windows' Mouse settings, the game does not honor this. You can still swap your LMB/RMB actions in the game's options but things like dragging items in your inventory will still be backwards.
