    Rock, Paper, Shotgonne - Let's play Torchlight 2 together!

    So, this is where we come from. If you know nothing of co-op Torchlight 2, this brief wiki page will introduce the basics.

    In short:

    • You will need to sign up on Runic's site to go online
    • Gameplay is only affected when players are close to each other
    • Difficulty selection is set by the first person to go online
    • Hardcore characters can only play with other hardcore characters
    • You can play any existing non-HC character as long as it fits in the level window
    • Loot is instanced


    The game is called "Rock, Paper, Shotgonne", 6 players, Veteran. Friends only, so no password is needed, but people must be on each other's friends list, so Runic usernames are necessary (Steam profiles optional but make everything so much easier)

    Also, I'm new at this so suggestions are welcome!

    Starring:

    challenger2uk - challenger2uk / challenger2uk
    Dominicus - DominicusOfSarth / ?
    hellraiserzlo - hellraiserzlo / hellraiserzlo
    khaz - khaz / khaz_
    mrchinchin25 - crustycuffs / crustycuffs
    MKing - Arkhis / Arkhis
    Sekraan - Sekraan / Sekraan
    Skeletor68 - Skeletor68 / Skeleto68
    Skyturnedred - Skyturnedred / Skyturnedred
    The JG Man - The JG Man / The_JG_Man
    TomxJ - TomxJ / TomxJ
    yours truly - weirdfish / fishisweird

    (format is: RPS username - Steam / Runic)

    to add a friend manually, go here.

    Next scheduled event: none at this time.

    Be sure to check out the threads in Steam discussions.

    Current Status:

    Vanilla:
    Level 35:
    challenger2uk, Eight Rooks, and me.

    I think I may be interested in this. Steam name is The JG Man (same profile pic as on here). Fairly certain the Runic one is the same but with underscores where appropriate.

    In terms of suggestions, I recommend making new characters. You'd still have access to your account bank if you really wanted to use items you'd previously found, but it puts everyone on an even step to start. Additionally, if there are too many people initially, I believe there's an (un)official mod for 8 player MP (one of the devs made it).

    I went to favorite that one and found out I had already <facepalm> Anyway, is it correct that enemies won't scale past 4 players?

    BTW, you're not coming up as a friend on Runic, I have no idea why, the guys I've just added on Steam are already showing up after importing.

    Me too, it's a good idea.

    I've started a skeleton group and invited everyone, let me know if I missed you somehow.

    Cool, I'll be up for a game or 5... but maybe next week this week is looking chaotic and I'm away this weekend.

    I checked my Runic name and it's The_JG_Man so that seems a bit peculiar. I've logged into the Runic Games site and it's come up with a load of Steam friends who have the game, so maybe logging on there will do it.

    Given that there are four classes and three specs within each (that are not contained, so you can freely pick any ability from any spec so long as you meet the level requirements) and at the moment 6 people, we shouldn't have too much problem with overlap given that there are tons of builds out there. I'd recommend that people have a look at skill calculators if you want to go in with a bit of knowledge of what all your abilities do. Most builds work, although there are some that contain absolute synergy (see: Embermage > Prismatic Bolt for one of the most boring and powerful builds out there) but for Veteran difficulty you absolutely don't need to go to the crazy stuff. Each run of the game on Veteran, assuming you do all of the side stuff should take you to the mid 40s for the end-game which should help to give you some indication of how much you'll be able to spec for.

    EDIT: I would say that for those of us who've played before, or those who are looking for something a bit more challenging, to try and come up with a role-playing character, eg. a battlemage (melee spells only with melee weapons, not a stave), robot-army Engineer, etc.

    I'll bite. T2's not my favourite ARPG or anything, but I certainly enjoy it enough I'd like to give it a shot with RPS people, if there's any spaces at some point. My Steam account's in my sig. EDIT: Apparently I do have a Runic account: I'm EightRooks there.

    Eventually I just added you manually, as that was quicker than waiting the 5-10 minutes Runic's site claims may be necessary, and I already imported my Steam friends list twice or thrice today.

    Bookmarked. Guess I'll be fooling around a little in SP first and make up my mind what class to pick. Most likely it'll be a ranged Outlander or Engineer since that's what I'm more familiar with, the engineer has some nice defensive skills that extend to allies IIRC.

    So ...what kind of schedule are we going for?

    khaz - khaz / khaz_

    I'll add one of you lot to get on the steam group. In fact, sending out Runic requests as well.

    Not super knowledgeable about TL2 builds. If there is a particular class missing I'll happily jump in. I remember the Engineer being a lot of fun but will happily go with an Outlander or a tanky sword and board if required.

    I'll go install that 8 player mod later this evening so. Are we ok with vanilla after that.

    Also, are you able to jump in and out of friend's games independent of level? I'd hate to hold anyone up.

    I'm on GMT as well. Very few commitments at the moment, so I'm open to suggestions about times and such.

    GMT here too. Perhaps one of those schedule thingy documents you can find online would be of use?
