Torchlight 2: Dual Wield Hybrid Engineer Build Guide

Updated on September 14, 2014


Just for fun. I created an unusual hybrid build.

Being hybrid in character build is all about combining two or more different traits. It may not be the best in particular field but it can deal different things.

This build combines strength and focus stat while wielding dual weapons with elemental damage.

Stats


Strength (200 Stat Points)

The main stat for increasing weapon damage of your dual wield weapon. It also increases critical strike damage and Coup de Grace damage.


Dexterity (95 Stat Points)

You deal high weapon and elemental damage so it’s best to multiply them by increasing critical strike chance.


Focus (200 Stat Points)

The main stat for increasing elemental damage and execute chance dual wielding similar weapons. So damage of skills like Seismic Slam, Onslaught, Coup de Grace, and Immobilization Copter is boosted. It also includes elemental damage of melee weapons.

Don’t forget that focus also increases maximum mana.


Skills


Blitz (46 Skill Points)

Seismic Slam (15 Skill Points)

Primary function of this skill is to stun and hit multiple enemies around you.

Stunning an enemy lets you trigger Coup de Grace.

Onslaught (1 Skill Points)

Just use this skill to quickly dash or debuff enemies. It is not your primary damaging skill so don’t waste more points. It’s a 1 point wonder skill

Supercharge (15 Skill Points)

Dual wielding provides you with more attack speed. So having more attack speed lets you proc Supercharge a lot.

While Supercharged you deal more weapon damage and gain bonus charge.

Coup de Grace (15 Skill Points)

High amount of chance to stun is recommended in order for you to maximize Coup de Grace potential.

The damage of this skill is boosted from both strength and focus.

Please take note that Coup de Grace cannot trigger more than one time per second. So it doesn’t benefit from attack speed.


Construction (46 Skill Points)

Healing Bot (15 Skill Points)

This drone lets your party save pots and money. The armor bonus is really good once you unlock it on higher levels.

Bulwark (15 Skill Points)

Passive skill that boosts your defense like Bulwark is really needed for this build since we didn’t invest on vitality stats.

Fire and Spark (15 Skill Points)

This passive skill helps focus in increasing the damage of your fire and electric. So it increases the damage of Seismic Slam, Onslaught, Coup de Grace, Immobilization Copter and fire/electric damage from your weapons.

This skill is your charge spender. Never miss having Forcefield since this skill makes up for your lack of defensive stats.

With this kind of build, it is important to delay enemies so that you won’t get mobbed.

The copter reduces enemies movement, attack, and cast speed. Unlock tier bonus to let the copter damage and interrupt enemies.

Another one point wonder to have some surprising Forcefield like damage absorption.
