Torchlight 2 Outlander Builds

To aid in that benevolent cause, we have devised 4 builds for the class. These builds are on level 100, with 145 points distributed in the skills and 495 in the stats. 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 Outlander Build #1

Stats:

Skills:

Warfare:

  • Venomous Hail (10/15)

Lore:

  • Glaive Sweep (15/15)
  • Bramble Wall (15/15)
  • Flaming Glaives (15/15)
  • Share the Wealth (15/15)

Sigil:

  • Blade Pact (15/15)
  • Bane Breath (15/15)
  • Stone Pact (15/15) (Optional if you can replace with any other)
  • Shadowling Brute (15/15)
  • Shadowling Ammo (15/15)
  • Death Ritual (15/15)

The main reason why nothing has been left in the Stats slot is because this build is extremely flexible, and you’ll see why.

The build primarily utilizes poison damage and summoning capability, hence it’s important to invest mainly in Lore and Sigil. In fact, it’s better to say that it ALSO does poison damage, and primarily revolves around the powerful skills in the Sigil tree.

Your two main summons are Bane Breath and Shadowling Brute. Though they are fantastic by themselves, the powerful and effective passive Share the Wealth gives you and them extra bonus for the Charge benefits. This is mainly a co-op based passive, but works well with summons, and thus is a great choice.

For some nice AoE damage, you have Glaive Sweep and Flaming Glaive. Also, the Bramble Wall is a viable defensive ability that comes in extremely handy against tougher enemies.

Coming back to the stats, if you want to deal lots of damage, consider investing majorly in Dexterity and Strength. If you are looking for a stable crit-based player with a bit of tankiness, consider Dexterity and Vitality. If you want to take the best from your poison damage, consider investing majorly in Focus and Dexterity.

You may have noticed that Dexterity has been mentioned in all of them. This is because this stat is the Outlander’s bread-and-butter attribute – crits and lots of dodging.

Torchlight 2 Outlander Build #2

Stats:

  • Strength 101
  • Dexterity 374
  • Focus 10
  • Vitality 50

Skills:

Warfare:

  • Rapid Fire (15/15)
  • Cursed Daggers (15/15)
  • Venomous Hail (15/15)
  • Long Range Mastery (15/15)

Lore:

  • Dodge Mastery (10/15)
  • Poison Burst (15/15)
  • Share the Wrath (15/15)

Sigil:

  • Stone Pact (15/15)
  • Master of the Elements (15/15)

Though the point distribution of this build may be relatively even, it is primarily a warfare focused one. This means that you will be relying on ranged projectile weapons to do most of the damage, and hence skills like Rapid Fire and Long Range Mastery come into play.
