Torchlight 2: Ravage Raze Berserker Build Guide

Updated on September 19, 2014


It’s all about unleashing tons of damage using Berserker. Ravage for taking down multiple opponents and Raze to eliminate single target bosses.

This build is all about spamming skills using Raze or Ravage while letting Battle Standard charge your mana.

What I like about this build is you are free to equip any melee weapon and not lock to dual claws only.

Since this build is mana dependent, you’re going to spend a lot of mana pots early game. But once you have Battle Standard, you will rarely use mana potions.

Stats


Strength (295 Stat Points)

This is your primary stat for dealing massive damage and critical strike using skills or basic attack.


Dexterity (150 Stat Points)

You also need a suitable amount of dexterity. What’s the use of high critical damage if you have low critical hit chance.


Vitality (50 Stat Points)

Vitality for survivability! You cannot deal massive damage if you’re dead.

To maximize this skill, make sure your melee weapon also deals ice damage.

Rage Retaliation (6 Skill Points)

Invest your remaining skill points here.

Your summon companion helps you deal more damage. The wolf can also steal health for you.

At max level, you can always make Wolf Shade available.

Savage Rush (1 Skill Point)

Main purpose of this skill is for travelling faster. Savage Rush is also useful for escaping danger.

It can also reduce enemies’ armor when struck by this skill.

Resource wise (mana and skill points) it is highly recommended that you only invest a single point for this skill.

Battle Standard (15 Skill Points)

Berserker has one of the best buffs for the whole party.

It increases dodge chance, knockback resistance, charge rate and mana recovery at higher levels.

Once the bonus mana recovery of this skill is unlocked, you will have an overflowing source of mana. So you can endlessly spam Ravage and Raze.

Shred Armor (15 Skill Points)

This passive skill makes your enemies more vulnerable the more you attack them. You also steal their physical armor with this skill.

Red Wolf (1 Skill Point)

The skill lets you damage additional enemies whenever you land a critical hit.

Don’t worry if you only put single point for this skill since its damage scales with player level.
