The Torchlight series is no stranger to very unique, sometimes niche classes in its games. The upcoming free spring update to Torchlight 3 brings with it a new addition to the existing selection of classes in the game. The new class to debut in the game is a canon-wielding pirate captain ghost. Does it sound oddly specific? Sure. Is it going to be fun? Well, if the existing classes of robot, train conductor, emo mage, and séance gun-person are any indication, heck yes.
The new class is called The Cursed Captain. It uses its canon to keep enemies at bay (pun intended) while it summons minions to fight for it. Appropriately, the minions summoned will be all sorts of crewmates from the pirate ship. Additionally, the new class will be able to use cursed magic and explosives on the battlefield. The energy used to power the different abilities is a currency called “Doubloons”, which can be obtained from treasure and fallen enemies.
Time to get the crew back together
The spring update will also bring with it dozens of different changes focusing mainly on the pet system (from new pet species to improved pet UI). You can check out all of the changes in the developer steam post.
