Torchlight - The game... The beginning...
Torchlight is a fun and addicting game. In the beginning,
there was the Alchemist, the Destroyer, the Vanquisher and their
faithful pet companions. Players simply chose a class and a pet
and off they went to exploring the mines of Torchlight, in search
of the precious Embers.
In addition to the mines of the main quest, there is also a place
called the Shadow Vault (SV), which opens up after you complete
the main quest (Defeat Ordrak). The floors (levels down) in the
Shadow Vault are infinite, providing endless game play for even
the most seasoned dungeon crawlers. Of course, the further down
you travel, the more difficult the monsters are to defeat.
There are several merchants and other non-playable
characters (NPCs) in the town of Torchlight; All offering their
unique services, such as Transmuting, Enchanting your equipment,
adding sockets to your equipment, removing socketed items from your
equipment, gambling for equipment, buying and selling potions, spells,
special maps, equipment, gems, etc. There is also an NPC who's sole
purpose is to retire characters. This special NPC named Goldenrod
only shows up in game after you have defeated Ordrak and completed
the main quest.
Despite its lack of multiplayer capability, Torchlight
turned out to be one of the best single-player Action Role-Playing
games (ARPGs), since the debut of Diablo II.

game fan site for the newbies!
Torchlight saved games
The first thing you should do as a new player to the
Torchlight game is to locate the folder where your saved games are
stored! Believe me, you'll be glad you did. In Torchlight, the saved
games are located in one of the following locations (depends on
your Operating System):
Apple MAC [your User account name]\Library\Application Support\runic
Windows XP C:\Documents and Settings\[your User account name]\Application
Windows Vista/Windows 7 C:\Users\[your User account name]\AppData\Roaming\runic
Note: If needed, replace C: with the drive letter you installed
Torchlight on (for example, D: or E:, etc.).
If you cannot locate the "save" folder in one of the above
locations, try one of the following methods:
Windows XP Click Start -> Click Run... -> Type %APPDATA%\runic
games\ in the Run dialog box -> Press Enter.
Windows Vista/Windows 7 Click Start -> Type %APPDATA%\runic
games\ in the "Start Search" text box -> Press Enter.
Torchlight's Save folder? Why should I care about
Good question. Now the answer. Torchlight is not a
solitaire card game. Torchlight is a game in which your character
Torchlight is a fun and easy to play game. Sometimes, it gets hectic
and when things get hectic, mistakes happen. Not always, but when
they do, they can cause a lot of frustration. That is, unless you
have a backup of your game!
So, as a rule of thumb, back up and save your "save"
game folder at least once a day (if you play every day). Personally,
I back up and save my characters about every hour of play time.
That way, the most I lose is about an hour of gameplay, if I do
need to restore one of my characters.
Remember, mistakes are like accidents; they are not
planned incidents they just happen.
Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty! The following
tutorial is for novice computer users, so there is no need for you
heavy duty gamers to feel offended :)

Torchlight II - The sequel continues...
Torchlight II is set to debut as a digital download
sometime in 2011.
The most important aspect of Torchlight II is the
addition of multiplayer. Players all over the world asked for it
and Runic Games listened and implemented it. If the game play is
anything like Torchlight, I'm sure this will be a gem well worth
Now, we're all waiting patiently for Torchlight II
Yeah right. I can hardly wait to explore Torchlight II and all its
new features, new characters and the multiplayer aspect with my
family and friends! Runic Games has promised to make Torchlight
II just as budget-worthy as Torchlight is, and that alone makes
me happy. :)
Torchlight MMORPG - A new beginning...
Ohhh boy. The Torchlight MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer
Online Role-Playing Game). We've all heard about it. We're all wondering
how its going to work. We're all curious as to when its going to
happen... What will it cost? Can we re-use our single-player characters
from Torchlight or our multiplayer characters from Torchlight II?
What does the future have in store for us? So many questions; so
