Rosa - High Court Chariot

Rosa is the newest addition to Torchlight Infinite's roster of heroes. She's been extremely popular so far with support for a variety of playstyles including Attacks and Spells. If you got your start on Groundshaker and want to transition to a bloody good time, this might be the build for you.

With the addition of Star Stalker DoT builds saw significant buffs this season. Bleed Rosa leverages this, in combination with Blizzard and other effects to rapidly Reap Trauma for massive damage. Rosa's defenses ensure you survive until the enemies pop in satisfying screen wipes.

Gemma Builds

Frostbitten Heart

Gemma's Frostbitten Heart trait got a huge rework in the Twinightmare Season and she's one of the best choices for high damage builds. Being able to permanently Freeze Elites provides a massive advantage while clearing the Netherrealm.

The new Lightning Beam generates Orbs which act similarly to minions, aggressively seeking out and destroying your foes. Because your orbs are capped this allows Precise: Triggered on Critical Strike to be used for massive damage! Grab some defenses and you're ready to take on any challenge Leptis has to offer.

MilkyBK_ also spent some time playing a beam-based Frostbitten Heart. Icebound Beam generates projectiles which can easily shotgun enemies at the focal point leading to massive damage. He adapted a budget setup from bunnassin/Thor and min-maxed it, taking out many of Torchlight's toughest bosses like tier 3 Paloma in the process.

For a wicked cool Frost Terra build check out the Trigger setup Crouching_Tuna recently cooked up. You can use Reap Purification with DoT skills for massive damage while leveraging Frostbitten Heart's defenses and damage via Freeze scaling.

Ice-Fire Fusion

Gemma's base trait remains one of the most versatile in Torchlight Infinite. As a result there's a wide variety of builds to be played on her. After combing through this season's meta however, one has consistently outperformed the rest.

With channeling skills getting official support for snapshotting Ring of Blades offers massive damage, great AoE and easy gameplay. Cold Snapshotting is popular on several hero traits including Gemma's Ice-Fire Fusion and Frostbitten Heart or Thea's Wisdom and Incarnation of the Gods.

Youga - Spacetime Elapse

Torchlight's master of time has been given a shiny new makeover this season including significant buffs to his interactions with Reaping. This has enabled powerful new builds and the return of old favorites, but one skill has been dominating the Elapse meta.

The Mind Control skill is a channeled DoT which scales into screen wide clear with persistent damage. This helps to counteract the natural ramp-up time inherent to Elapse's hero abilities.

Rehan - Anger

Everyone's still on the Rehan hype train with top Burst builds remaining some of the best starters in the Twimightmare Season. Savage Charge offers buttery smooth gameplay and the build continues scaling all the way to 8-4 Deep Space farming viability.

One interesting example of this is the Chaos Train build recently showcased by DonTheCrown. The longer a fight goes on the higher your Chaos stacks leading to massive damage after a short delay.

Iris - Growing Breeze

Iris was easily the best Hero in the City of Aeterna Season. She got a few nerfs going into Twinightmare, but her best builds are still highly competitive. All 3 Magi builds are viable, but Summon Frost Spirit stands out as the strongest.

Once you get your gear together, the damage offered by Summon Frost Spirit is frankly absurd. This build is great for blasting 8-4 Deep Space or taking on challenging boss encounters.

Thea - Wisdom of the Gods

The classic Thea/Gemma Thundercloud farming build has survived yet another season, with official snapshotting support this is looking to be a Torchlight Infinite staple.

Channel up your Thundercloud, then blast enemies with Shocking amounts of damage. In addition to high clear speed, the build mixes Energy Shield and Deflection for a well-rounded defensive package.
