Torchlight 2 Engineer Builds Guide – Blitz, Construction and Aegis

By   /   4 years ago


Torchlight 2’s Engineer build goes away from the conventional dogma that surrounds the profession in most games, and instead gives the class some neat twists and a bit of flavor to make him effective in just about every situation.

With a powerful set of tanking, damage, and crowd control abilities at hand, the Engineer has the luxury to take up the role of just about any kind of character in co-op, and also has enough in him to combine these attributes and venture forth all alone.

Torchlight 2 Engineer Builds

This guide will provide you with 4 Engineer builds. Note that the Stats of the builds are not hard-and-fast, and are meant only to give you an idea of the point distribution.

Torchlight 2 Engineer Build #1

Stats:

  • Strength 260
  • Dexterity 85
  • Focus 30
  • Vitality 160

Skills:

Blitz:

  • Flamer Hammer (15/15)
  • Onslaught (15/15)
  • Storm Burst (5/15)
  • Heavy Lifting (15/15)
  • Supercharge (10/15)
  • Coup de Grace (15/15)

Construction:

  • Healing Bot (15/15)
  • Gun Bot (15/15)
  • Bulwark (15/15)
  • Fire and Spark (15/15)

Aegis:

  • Charge Reconstruction (15/15)

With focus primarily on the Blitz and Construction trees, this build attempts to make most out of the Engineer’s damage capabilities, with primary focus on the Hammer-related skills.

You might be surprised at the 5 passive skills used, but a good Hammer build is one which utilizes the strong damage-increasing passives of the Engineer, which are overall extremely reliable.

When you combine the effects of Flame Hammer, Onslaught, Heavy Lifting, Supercharge, and Coup de Grace and destroy your target, provided the on-hit effects of Heavy Lifting triggers.

The 5 points in Storm Burst are mainly for added mobility, and unless you feel you can afford to sacrifice something from other regions to invest in it, there is really no need to.

The Construction tree is more utility based in this build, with focus on getting some healing with the Healing Bot, and a bit of added fire support from the passives and the Gun Bot.

Aegis has the lone Charge Reconstruction maxed out for obvious purposes. This is a great little passive that scales with player level, and remains overall very useful throughout.
