    Torchlight Infinite – Spacetime Illusion Youga

    If Spacetime Illusion Youga is your first character to play, the best tip we can give you is to take a look at our guide as a reference point for the copying the build as you level up. This will save you time for the re-spec later on.

    Spacetime Illusion is an odd choice for beginners, but if you wanted to play “time wizard” and “illusionist,” then Spacetime Illusion Youga is for you. Think of his gameplay to be the mix of Ice-Fire Gemma, Commander Moto and Divineshot Carino rolled into one. His spacetime field will be your best friend as you cast spells and allow an illusion of yours to fight within.

    How to Build the Spacetime Illusion Character in Torchlight Infinite

    Spacetime Illusion Youga can be built in many ways, but we will be making a Shadow Shot build to fully maximize the Twisted Spacetime ability. His gear will revolve around taking wands, Twisted Spacetime and Wilt tags off the equipment, which is highly valued.

    Recommended Skills for Building Spacetime Illusion Youga

    Shadow Shot + Efficient Cast + Improved Corrosion + Greater Multiple Projectiles + Reaping Agony will stack with Twisted Spacetime to creak a lot of shadow bolts.

    You have to first activate Secret Origin Unleash, coupled with Shadow Shot and Shadow Swap, for both projectile and AOE damage. Remember that Twisted Time Space on autocast is a decent source of move speed, attack, and casting speed while you are in the warped area.

    Best Hero Traits for Spacetime Youga

    The mechanic for Spacetime Illusion class is to create the twisted spacetime which is an AOE field that compliments your spells, buffs your spell damage and help your illusion within the warp.

    For our hero traits, here’s the recommended list:

Tap the Trait Slot again while a Spacetime Illusion is active to summon a new Spacetime Illusion. The Spacetime Illusion uses your Main Skill once every 1.5s. Spacetime Illusion’s castings also trigger affixes that are effective on you.
    • Level 32: Field Effect : +20% Cast Speed and +20% Spacetime Illusion Damage when you’re in the Twisted Spacetime.
    • Level 50: Spacetime Resonance : 25% of the increase/decrease on Cast Speed is also applied to Spacetime Illusion’s Cast Frequency. +4% Skill Cooldown Speed each time you and Spacetime Illusion cast, up to 40%.
