Not had a huge amount of time to play this, but I really like it. I am not normally one for games like this, but I do enjoy the combat :D

Glad to hear you're enjoying it, at some point we should probably all try and play together, I think enough of us might own it now. Time is precious atm though.

Glad to hear it, it's a great introduction to the genre and IMO arguably much much much better than Diablo 3.

Question, Ion, why do you not have Onslaught set as your 'tabbed' rmb skill? You have Flame Hammer set twice?

Because I used to use flamehammer as my primary before emberquake and I just never changed it :P I don't use onslaught as much of a damage dealer, more for mobility and slowing down the really really nasty hard hitting mobs.

My Shootylander. Went a bit OTT on the Vit and Focus before I realised that I needed Str & Dex :/

NG+ IMO, do it via lan mode, then you can reroll the world and if you want, change the difficulty setting.

If you just continue into NG+ using singleplayer all the maps will be the same as the first time around, so ya rly. There are actually rare dungeons which only spawn sometimes, like "The Thing" dungeon.

Recently started playing this again, holy crap my engineer looks cool! If anyone wants to do some multiplayer, either starting over or if you have a similar level character, continuing on, just let me know :)

New photobucket sucks, so I'll be looking for a new image hoster it seems :(

Nice Engi. Why is your Outlander not loaded with Focus + Dex? Why are you not using Glaive as your main ability (lft mouse)??

I am currently having real problems with TLII and can barely get the bloody game to load. Something about an incorrectly formatted local_settings file that every time I change, it re-formats incorrectly >:(

My Outlander is a dual wield pistols build, so strength is important for boosting the wep dmg of the pistols, and my primary damage skill is %wep dmg based. I was also wearing a piece of STR gear to enable me to use better gear. I don't use glaive, I'm focusing on poison damage, which is what venomous hail is based on, also the passive that effects +% elemental damage is 2x for poison. I also have so much crit that dexterity doesn't really give much of a bonus, with full charge I'm sitting on 50% crit. You're right about the FOC though, it was an oversight, I'm investing heavily in it now.

Have you tried verifying the game cache? failing that, uninstall and reinstall, steam will keep your saves anyway.

Engi is now level 88, NG++ :)

I'm hooked on this game again, and the additional new content that the patch introduced has helped immensely.

I know some people might not like the look of this game visually though, it's not very dark/grim - well that's what mods are for :) Not my character FYI.

Posted Image

And here is the current state of my engineer, DPS number is simply auto attack damage with no crits, a normal hit is 10k, a crit is 45-55k and a supercharged crit is 75k-105k. Skill damage can be upwards of 300k, depending on the skill and number of crits.

My pride and joy :)

lol @ D2 font mod. It seems that every RPG game in existence has a mod for that font.

I bought TL2 at release, but haven't played it for quite some time. It was great fun in LAN games, although there is one thing that really bugs me: This game has almost no multi-core support at all. So even though it's graphics are rather bad, it lags like hell in large battles. This also kinda ruins all my hopes for a graphic overhaul mod.
If they manage to improve that (Or have they already? Like I said, I haven't played it for a while), It could be an awesome LAN game and a good modding platform.

Hmm, I can't say I've experienced any of the slowdowns you've described, occasionally in battle if things get particularily mental with spells it slows down a bit, but its for a short period and doesn't harm the gameplay for me.

Secondly that font is only like the D2 one, the T's are different, the mod isn't related to the font change, it's what is creating the more grim/dark look of the visuals instead.

Here's a rather large thread about this: http://forums.runicg...9dd7aa1587e495d
But it's from september - october, and the devs promised, they were "working on it". So I have no idea if anything has changed.

What CPU do you have? I have a rather old 2.4GHz CPU quadcore, which works fine in optimised games (BF3, Skyrim, Diablo 3, etc) in high settings but isn't really enough for TL2. And I refuse to turn down the graphics in a game that already looks like it was a decade old.

Edit: And I found a newer thread here http://forums.runicg...hp?f=54&t=54849, so I guess nothing has been fixed at all.

I have a rather old 3.2Ghz dual core. It's the particles that do it, when it goes a bit crazy I get an FPS drop, but thats always been the way when loads of stuff is going on at once.

I'm running the runic respect potion mod, something which increases the draw distance of the monsters and most recently a mod which adds stat potions as rare drops - though not as rare as I would like, it won't effect the balance of my engineer much, as I'm already at endgame, however I wonder how it will balance new classes.

Update on my engineer, I now have 5 parts of the new level 105 set, it kicks arse!
