Hero Overview – Torchlight Infinite Guide for Beginners
There are over 5 different classes you can play in Torchlight Infinite. These are familiar classes from similar ARPGs mixed in with their unique fighting capabilities. If you have played previous titles within the Torchlight franchise, you will easily fit into them. For new players to the game, however, knowing which class to choose for your first playthrough will reflect the gameplay that you want to experience.
Here is our guide to the classes you can choose from, as well as a brief description of what they do and where they are best suited; it should help you decide which one to take you on your adventures.
The Berserker’s gameplay is all about big and brutish numbers, with a straight leap towards his enemies to tank mobs and deal violence per weapon swing and rage to boost those numbers. It’s a simple class for new players that want to see the numbers get higher per hit. There is little to no difficulty in stat point allocation, as what is important is strength for damage and intelligence for skill use. Rage will definitely be your core skill, as each hit per enemy increases your attack speed. At higher levels, all you need to know is that it equates to one word. Damage!

The Commander class is a summoner whose units deal damage. It is overall a good unit for beginners, as its gameplay revolves around summoning and buffing your robotic minions as they fight for you. You don’t deal as much damage on your own, but a Commander’s strength lies in the ease of their gameplay, which leaves room for beginners to start experimenting with skill builds.

Ice-Fire Gemma is a damage based class that uses the elements of fire and frost to burn and freeze mobs simultaneously. She can control the battlefield while dealing damage and using other spells to suit each situation for satisfactory results. Her special trait activates when she gains the elemental energy, which at its maximum can emit a pulse of those elements to devastate everything around her.

Spacetime Witness Youga
The Spacetime Witness class is definitely a unique entry, as it has 2 unique classes to focus on: Spacetime Illusion and Spacetime Elapse. Spacetime Illusion is an advanced class that makes for fun gameplay if you can manage through its initial difficulty. It is also a class that has the support capabilities needed to buff allies in a group setting. This may be useful when co-op mode is available.

Divineshot Carino is a ranged combat hero with an emphasis on damage and mobility. Carino’s projection hero trait depletes ammo after a certain number of shots and requires reloading. It is based on the type of ammunition used plus movement speed. This results in several powerful combos for you to try out and use to destroy mobs. It can get flashy or be as simple as you want it to be.

In Season 1, we met Thea, a champion with a lot of power who uses elements and blessings with an area-of-effect game and has a hybrid gameplay of a wizard and a cleric. She has by far a champion that could be at the top of your list. Check out our Oracle Thea build guide soon and see how even our staff chose her over all other champions.
Cateye Erika is a hero who is as deadly as she looks. She thrives on mobility and attack speed gear with explosion skills to clear out enemies rapidly. They say she can be better suited for advanced players due to having the game knowledge to make a successful combo run, but don’t let that fool you and pick her.
We note that each class has its own strengths and weaknesses. We’ll put up a guide later on for exact comparisons, but in summary, every class is viable for completing the main story, and their endgame routes will differ based on the builds that you have created.
We hope that this article helps you make better decisions in regards to the first class you should pick for your game. Torchlight Infinite is currently free to play, so join in now as we cover more content in future releases.
