Berserker is the intense melee damage dealer in Torchlight 2.

If you are looking for sample builds to make your own berserker variants, this article can help you do that.

Please take note that I will update this article from time to time if there are needed changes or for providing more builds.


Critical Striker Dual Wield Berserker Build


This is a typical Berserker build that relies on fast and powerful basic attacks.

Points are usually distributed on passive skills such as:

Executioner to increase chance of execute and charge rate.

Cold Steel Mastery that increases physical and ice damage of melee attacks.

Rage Retaliation to counter attack foes with your heavy damage.

Shred Armor that makes your enemy more vulnerable each time you hit, and steals their armor. Rampage

A single point on Rampage and Shatter Storm is enough for some extra bonuses.

Whenever you land critical hits, Blood Hunger heals Berserker and Red Wolf may proc extra damage.

Active skills that you can cast are buff, debuff and summon such as:

Howl that decrease enemy’s movement, attack, and cast speed. It also increases damage they take.

Battle Rage increases your all damage and decreases physical damage taken the more enemies nearby.

Wolf Shade summons wolf that deals damage to enemies and steals health for Berserker.

Single point on Savage Rush is used to move faster from one place to another.

Frost Mage Berserker Build


A Mage type Berserker that concentrates on Focus to inflict powerful Ice Damage on enemies. The build provides crowd control by either freezing or immobilizing enemies.

Start the fight by casting Permafrost then Glacial Shatter. When both skills are on cooldown, spam Northern Rage. You can spam all skills without worrying about mana by casting Battle Standard whenever possible.

Since you use Ice element and freeze enemies often, Shatter Storm complements well with this build.

Use low level Shadow Burst for healing or when need to conserve mana.

Battle Rage increases your all damage and decreases physical damage taken the more enemies nearby.

A single point on Rampage is enough for some extra bonuses.

Rage Retaliation to counter attack foes with your heavy damage.
