    A question for those who've played the beta: Did anyone try any unorthodox class/skill/gear combinations? The only one I got around to was making a melee Outlander weilding a 2-hander, which wasn't very interesting until she got to level 21 and could sink some of her saved-up points into the fiery glaive skills and the area healing/buff skill. As a mobile class with buffs and debuffs and the almost constant attack speed and crit bonus I could see it working quite well at higher levels, but you only just get access to the more interesting skills that don't require a ranged weapon before the beta content ends.

    Also, any good ideas for setups in 2-player co-op? We haven't seen the full skill trees yet of course, and any combination of classes could work quite well, but Engineer and Outlander seem like they could form a powerhouse setup with both having strong buffs, one being very tough and the other being able to kite and debuff enemies.

    It seems that you can pre-load the game from Steam now. Additionally, you can link your Steam account to your Runic account if you have any intention to play online.
    Not sure about those who pre-ordered it from Second World but the pre-load is only ~1,4 GB at this moment and shouldn't take too long to download even on slower connections.

    And on Googling that, you can link your accounts through here.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Do you need the Runic account for all online gaming or is it just for if you want to be able to play with everyone (rather than just people on your Steam friends list)?
    Give me steam and how you feel to make it real.

    As I remember, to play online non LAN in beta, that's what you needed the runic account. So probably, yes, you should be bound to that account.

    One thing that worries me a little is that classes don't seem very flexible, so there may not be many incentives for odd builds. For example while Embermage has skills that could work well in melee, Outlander doesn't. Outlander seems a 100% ranged class and it would be difficult to make something weird with it.

    4 melee, 4 ranged, 4 summoner, 4 support, etc? The more classes the bigger chance of specialization anyways.

    Wait for class mods. TL1 has hundreds of them.

    It seems cruel to allow pre-loading this early. It's only 1.4GB after all, it would've made much more sense if it were Max Payne 3 or something similarly huge.

    From what I recall in the beta, that just didn't turn out to be true. I can't speak for a melee outlander (didn't try to make one) but it was generally accepted that a wand-wielding berserker was strong enough to break the game, and the berserker was about as melee/physical oriented as it gets. At any rate, it definitely seemed to be their intent to give people balanced alternative choices than just their class archetype, so I wouldn't worry about it too much!

    (with the usual disclaimer that beta isn't final and shit changes, obviously.)

    The animation of Embermage thwacking something with a staff looks very satisfying !

    Preloaded. Waiting. :(

    edit: Watching that video now. Dynamic hitboxes, sorting of the inventory, queuing skills. It all sounds polished and great.

    This is extremely unlikely to happen.

    TL1 was entertaining for a while, the mod support gave it some replay value too.

    Not exactly much gameplay to be had in these games but they are nice to kill some time.

    Finland should be at most 1-2 hours later than Spain, and Spain gets releases/dailies/sales at 7PM.

    So Finland get's at 9pm, almost friday, and that's if the release is on usual time. I would be more in liking getting it at 6AM GMT, but won't really care, if I won't.
