Welcome to the Rosa, High Court Chariot Leveling Guide. Rosa is an irreverent Paladin, who would rather destroy Torchlight's foes than kiss the feet of Keegan's adherents. Rosa's High Court Chariot is highly mobile. Wielding a shield in one hand and whatever else she damn well pleases in the other Rosa dominates the battlefield. Blocking foes builds up Murderous Intent which she unleashes to create a Holy Domain, pulling enemies in for a nice shield bash to the face!

The leveling guide is intended to take your character to Level 80.
This is the last level with unlimited free respec points.
Be sure to check the final section of the guide for recommendations on how to transition into the Endgame!

Treasure Troves

Treasure Troves are a way to super-charge your leveling experience. They give vastly more experience than regular zones and yield exclusive Legendary items. You need to complete each of them once for a Talent Point. For an easier leveling experience, you repeat the Treasure Trove until you're 8-10 levels above the zone, then rush through the next few areas. Follow your side quest to find the Treasure Trove locations.

Keep an eye out for the following Legendary items as you clear Treasure Troves.

  • New Ear Hills (L7): Look out for Glorious Journey and Rock Lizard's Skull.
  • Nectar Valley (L16): Look out for Dragon Scale Shoes, Boor's Iron Crown.
  • Dawn Avenue (L27): Look out for Reverse-Reverse-Reverse Mirror, Boor's Iron Crown and Omniscient Prototype.
  • Sanctuary of Solitude (L35): Look out for Shamed and Omniscient Prototype.
  • Silver Sands' End (L44): Look out for Steel's Lament and Furious Man's Body.
    • NOTE: If you get the chestpiece, remove Quick Return from Groundshaker and replace it with Critical Strike Damage Increase. Remember to swap back if you take the chest off!
  • Hall of Grandiosity (L54): Look out for Boom Gloves and Omniscient Prototype.

Leveling Tips and Tricks

  • Your first active skill slot (top left in the Skills menu) is your "Main Skill," this matters because many items and Hero Traits have effects that only apply to the Main Skill.
  • If you're ever in doubt of where to go, click the campaign quest on the left of your screen and a golden path shows you the way.
  • This guide assumes you get most of your levels through Treasure Troves and rush to the objectives in other zones for maximum efficiency.
  • When allocating Pact Points, prioritize Life first, then select Damage nodes until you fill the section. If you have leftover points, put them into Drop nodes as you begin farming the Netherrealm.
  • Complete all 10 Levels of the Hero Forge to unlock all of your Hero Trait abilities and gain 6 additional Talent Points.
  • All support gems become available from the Skill Shop at level 55. At this stage cross reference with the embeds to make sure you're set up for the Netherrealm.
  • In Chapter 3 gear you find comes with varying amounts of Energy, after changing your gear, be sure to go to the Energy Menu under Skills to reassign missing Energy.

  • Use Compound Source to quickly regenerate Life and Mana whenever needed.
  • Activate Bull's Rage to gain a massive boost to Melee Skill Damage and Radius.
  • Fixate should be used to Mark enemies and also gives you a chance to deal double damage.

Rosa Leveling Talent Tree
Move to slider at the bottom to interact with the Tool

God of War

This tree focuses on Physical Damage by provided large amounts of Flat Physical Damage as well as some Block Chance you allocate later into the leveling process. Brutality prevents you from dealing Elemental damage so avoid weapons with added Fire/Cold/Lightning Damage.


This tree grants large increases to Physical Damage and +1 Level to All Physical Skills. Open Wounds provides a large amount of Critical Strike Damage against Traumatized enemies, a status applied by Acuteness Imbue. This tree also grants strong defensive talents, including Chance to Block Attack Damage and Reduced Physical Damage Taken.


This tree further scales Critical Strike Chance and Damage, as well as providing a very powerful node for scaling this damage further into the endgame which cause the Increases to Knockback Distance to apply to Attack Damage at 150% of the value.

There are tons of different Talent Trees to explore, if you want to learn more about this robust system check out our Talent Tree Guide.

The Netherrealm

Racing through your Netherrealm quests as quickly as possible results in you becoming under leveled for the required zones to progress further, stay within 3 levels of the zones you're completing to avoid a harsh experience penalty. Check out our How to Progress the Netherrealm if you're unsure of anything.

Here's a list of things to do while progressing the early stages of the Netherrealm;

  • Level 60: the Trade House is unlocked. Be sure to read and understand our Trade House for Beginners Guide before making any big purchases.
  • Higher item levels of gear come with higher quantities of Energy. Look to improve your current gear with items that have increased Energy so that you can use more Support Skills.
  • Utilize Prototype Crafting and Enchanting to greatly increase the power of non-legendary gear you come across. It costs very low amounts of Flame Dust and Flame Sand to lock 1 good affix in place and reroll up to 4 new modifiers.

Transitioning to Endgame


Look for the following modifiers on your weapon:

  • Prefixes:
    • Gear Physical Damage
    • Physical Damage added to Attacks
    • Erosion Damage added to Attacks
  • Suffixes:
    • Gear Critical Strike Chance
    • Critical Strike Damage
    • Gear Attack Speed (Note this does not always increase dps, but does add quality of life).
  • If it is item level 70+, craft your weapon using prototype crafting until you hit several useful modifiers.
  • Use Targeted Processing to add more modifiers from the above list until the item has 5 modifiers.
  • Enchant your item with a 6th modifier.

Remaining Gear

Focus on crafting the remainder of your Armor and Jewelry with the following goals in mind;

  • Cap all of your Resistances at the 60% maximum.
  • Have a healthy Life pool.
    • Scale Armor for additional defenses.
  • Demolisher Charge Modifiers
  • Increase your Melee or Physical damage.
  • Critical Strike Rating, or Damage.
  • Attack Speed (Note this does not always increase dps, but does add quality of life).

Legendary Items


  • Omniscient Prototype grants a large amount of Energy but no stats.
  • Dragon Scale Warshield makes you a lot tankier over the duration of a zone.
  • Shield of Judgment a low level shield that helps you take down enemies during the campaign.
  • Lonesome is a great ring for the early game, but you have to replace Brutality with Determined.

Set Items

As you complete the Netherrealm be sure to farm the following Voyager's Commemorative Set items.

  • Voyager's Commemorative Cape
  • Voyager's Commemorative Strap
  • Voyager's Commemorative Goggles
  • Voyager's Commemorative Boots
  • Voyager's Commemorative Cufflinks
  • Voyager's Commemorative Pinky Ring


  • Ralph's Engraving grants easy access to Fervor rating.
  • Hero's Gaze grants a large amount of damage. This damage modifier can be later applied to a crafted ring using Dream Interpretation.
  • Praise for Injury provides explosions for clear speed.
  • Vortex Heart gives a significant boost to damage if you drop your AoE directly on enemies.
