Torchlight 2, one of the best dungeon crawling loot fests on PC, has a lively modding community, adding tons of new content and balancing the game. These mods range from minor, like a slight change to your UI, to enormous changes, like dozens of hours of new content.
To the gamers out there versed in modding their games, like the fans of Fallout and Skyrim used to having over 150 mods working at once, Torchlight is a different change of pace. Torchlight, due to technical limitations, has a limit of 10 mods running at once. That’s why this list includes mod-packs as opposed to specific mods within those packs, that way you can get the most bang for your buck!
Additionally, Twinfinite has tested the compatibility of all 10 of these mods working at the same time, resulting in very few bugs and no game crashes, however every gaming rig is different and results may vary. This list was ordered to show which mods you should download first, but always make sure to check the description of every mod you use to make sure the order in which you load the mods in-game is correct!
Best Torchlight 2 Mods
This is probably the most important mod on this list, because it is enormous. The Synergies mod might as well be considered an expansion pack for the game, considering it adds a ludicrous amount of original content while also reworking vanilla content. In addition to three new classes, the mod adds new towns, new dungeons, and even revamps new game plus, adding new content to the higher tiers of playthroughs, such as unique legendary weapons, new awesome looking armors, and even new bosses.
Of all the mods on this list, this is objectively the most important, because without it you’re missing out on a lot of crazy cool content. However, this mod may be problematic for some, because it makes the game quite a bit harder, being balanced around the harder difficulties. Additionally, this mod may kill a lot of players’ framerate, because you’ll often run into literal hordes of enemies ranging in the dozens, which, unless you have a crazy powerful computer, is going to bring the game to a halt at times. If you don’t have a moderately strong computer, you might have no choice but to skip this one.
Nevertheless, if you don’t have framerate issues, mowing down tons of enemies is incredibly fun and makes the combat a much more satisfying experience.
