I installed this game as well, VERRRY good, I can't believe this company couldn't keep going. I spose I can understand not marketing enough or whatever. Great game nonetheless, I'm a lvl 15ish dual weild/bow, I'm thinking of changing my ranged to something different.

Suggestions would be cool, I've got some very cool weapons, 2 blue blunt weaps, and a blue shield recently. Way good game!!! Love it!!

What combinations are those classes?


I think pretty much all classes in titan's quest are very good. If it fits your play style, then you will do good.

I am a War/Spirit. I've gone through the game pretty well with this combo. However, I know some people that have had severe problems. My play style fits War/Spirit perfectly though, so it worked out.



Just FYI to everyone. If you want to go melee, it might be a good idea to use defender as one of your classes or you will have a harder time. Obviously I did not do this and I was fine, but there were times where it would have been easier if I did use defender.

Assassin is War/Rogue
Oracle is Spirit and Storm

I had a Battlemage before my save crapped out on me.

I have an Oracle and it's great. However, this is a pure mage character using staffs and spells. Lower armor, lower defensive ability but good pets, buffs and DPS.

Edit: Lich king is probably the best pet in the whole game. Good DPS, high resistances, leeching, etc. Wisp from storm tree, periodically buffs elemental damage up to 100%!(even more if you have + points on skills)

Sum up= pets as tanks and player to kill. However, this draws them to you most of the times but they should have taken enough damage already.

When I played the game i used a Hunter/Rouge, with most focus on the hunter part for bow use.

It turned out to be a nice build i think. You have the poison skill from rouge (slow, confuse etc)
on multi arrow and peirce (33% chance on both i think) making for good enemy controll. I also used a ring with ice/slow for even better enemy controll

DPS wize it dont look all that much when you look at the stats, but critical hits and multi shots are not taken in to account, so you often do x3 as much damages and when a multi shot makes a critical thats instant kill on most mobs as you deal even more damage.

Hunters also have a skill that lowers resistance quite a bit and it's very good together with bows for harder mobs and bosses.

Gear with projectile speed is very important, you get some from your primary attack skill but the more you have, the furthur your arrows travel (seems like arrows exists in the world for a set amount of time so..)

I think the character was lvl 58 or so when I stoped playing (i was at the begining of Legendary). Farming Typhon with this character was very easy, even after they changed him to be much harder in the expansion.

My brother plays and still do, a Nature/Dream master and that character is also very powerfull. Melee with summons

I think im gonna give it a second go with that fan patch

I'm to Knossos Palace in Crete. Haven't made it inside the laybrinth yet.

I've put a few more points into volcanic orb, 2 points into conflagration and one into fragmentation. Absolutely havoc wreaking on mobs. It usually can wipe out the majority of most mobs I encounter and then gives me enough time to put arrows into the survivors with earth enchantment and depending on which bow, poison or elemental damage.

I'm contemplating now to start putting most of my skill points into summon liche king as I've heard he can wipe out mobs.

Everytime I play this game, after a few minutes, my screen freezes and my pc restarts... I don't know if its the driver or the videocard is just failing. The rig is not overclocked anymore. I don't have problems with Crysis, but when I play TQ or The Witcher, the pc restarts!

RPG fail!

Just purchased it yesterday and I did a 8 hour binge playing the game, wow amazing game, wish i had bought it earlier. But the demo was a bit boring compared to the full game.
