Torchlight 2 Update v1.14.2.5 (RETAIL USERS)

Posted 18 Oct 2012 in Game Updates

Torchlight II

Torchlight returns! The award-winning Action RPG is back, bigger and better, with Torchlight II. Runic Games, located in Seattle, is a veteran team composed of the designers and leads of projects including Diablo, Diablo II, Mythos, Fate, and Torchlight, which won the Game Developer’s Choice Award for Best Debut of 2009.

Torchlight II captures the quirky charm and furious action of the original, while expanding the world and including the features players wanted most. Torchlight II is fast, fun, and filled to the brim with action and loot. Adventure solo, or online with your friends!

The most exciting new feature of Torchlight II is the multiplayer component. Play with friends old and new, using the free matchmaking service. Together you’ll discover expansive outdoor areas and ominous caverns; random dungeons teem with a huge variety of all new monsters and villains, powerful magical loot, and quests to complete. Journey through vastly differing locales, enjoying all new weather features, time of day events, and a new and more deeply developed story.

Years ago, the Heroes of Torchlight saved the world from the ancient evil, Ordrak. Now someone has stolen the essence of his power, and is using it to upset the balance of the six elements. After witnessing the destruction wrought by this terrible artifact, you’ll begin a quest to uncover the villain’s identity and avert disaster. The trail leads from the beleaguered Estherian Steppes, through the war-torn Mana Wastes and the haunted ruins of an ancient dwarven city, before descending to a realm where no mortal has set foot for thousands of years—and where an even more terrible evil struggles to unleash itself into the world.

Install notes



To all friends of the family and honorable rival groups


This patch addresses a number of issues:

Intel HD graphics cards should not show ghosting/smearing effects if shadows are enabled
LARGE performance optimization to buff/debuff bar displays when there are a large number of overlapping, nonexclusive effects (damage over time, and duration based effects or knockback )
Shield Bash bonus damage now deals the stated amount(charged and uncharged)
Wolfpack will properly strike turrets
Bonuses due to proximity now always expire properly
Damage bonuses/reductions for Battle Rage properly expire
Fixed Critical Hit bonuses on some effects not properly incorporating bonuses to crit
Pet damage bonuses are applied to effects
Three Sisters zone now has an appropriate level range for proper NG+ reward scaling
Various issues resolved in Luminous Arena in multiplayer
Level determinism fixed (Was broken with precaching in previous patch - could result in triggerable elements and some structural elements re-randomizing on load, or in multiplayer)
Set reward for Inquisitor set altered to a functional bonus
Fixes to the summon skull proc on equipment (prevents it from spawning exactly on a target)
Effects based on proximate monsters now work properly with socketables
DOTs were not properly attributing experience if the effect was applied from an item instead of a skill
Target Dummy is Charm resistant
Fixed issue where rebinding Close All Menus could lock you in pause mode
Fix for shift-click casting a left-click spell and then selecting an item (would previously auto-attack)
Pet enhancing bonuses work more consistently for pets attached to OTHER pets

    Nevermind I just reïnstalled the game until Update 3 again and will now use the correct update to get it up to date, was afraid it had deleted my save files but that was luckily not the case. Again thanks for the help!

    Really hope installing that version over this one will get me my save file back. I will let you know if it works. Thanks for the link, didn’t know there were two versions.
