Months after players have eked the last drop of content out of the vanilla version of Torchlight II, modders are still going strong, twisting, re-vamping and moulding the game into whatever they please.
But while there many fine mods out there (more than I could hope to keep track of, really), the Synergies Mod by Salan stands apart. Billed as a “complete conversion mod for Torchlight II“, it adds a new class called the Necromancer, new maps and new mobs to the game.
From the ModDB description:
SynergiesMOD is a complete conversion for Torchlight 2! Adding 108 Elite monsters, 6 Rare dragons, 28 Raid dungeons, 11 unique World Bosses, 4 Sets of Legendary armour, 16 new Tier-1 Legendary Weapons, brand new Quest lines, a new World hub for ACT5, and a whole new class: The Necromancer. Future plans include 24 planned Classes, 3 more Raid Dungeon chains, 2 Quest hubs, 2 more ACTS of overworld play, 3 more Legendary armour sets, a second tier of legendary weapons, as well as fleshing out the tier1 weapons with more options! The mod is aggressively developed and the community is being built around inclusion and discussion on our Website, Steam group and Facebook pages.
Woah. The video up top demonstrates the Necromancer’s main skill, called “Skull Barrage”, which sends out, well, a barrage of exploding skulls. You can learn more about the Mod over at ModDB, and check out a lengthier video of it in action here:
