When Update 6: Adept’s Path releases for Torchlight Frontiers next week, it will be bringing with it a new progression system for the game’s Skills, as well as a leveling rebalance.
The approach for the skill changes is three-pronged. Echtra Games is looking to improve the pacing, planning, and scalability of the various skills and their acquisition. They want skills progression to feel consistent with significant rewards. They want players to be able to plan strategically. And they want to the system to be scalable, so they don’t have to rebalance the entire thing in the future.
The leveling rebalancing ties directly into pacing. That way, you can level up and earn those skills in a fashion that feels the best.
