Should I skip Torchlight 1 and move on to this?
I'm in the middle of playing the first Torchlight and I'm at the Estherian Ruins. I have a pretty good feel for it but I'm wondering is there much that I would miss if I just skipped on ahead to Torchlight 2?

Not quite sure how much of the "lore" / the story you want to experience in a game like this but in order to get the full story of the first game I recommend playing through it at least once, which would be a good point to switch over in my opinion.

you can skip to TL2, but you'll miss some epic boss battles, like the Ember Colossus, Aldric and ofcourse Ordrak.

don't worry - TL1 is a very short game without the mods. if you are in Estheria, you probably got less than 5 hours to go until the finale.
in comparison, it would probably take you more time to finish act 1 in TL2. especially on Veteran or Elite difficulty where you'll need to fall back and level-up/gear-up a lot.

Torchlight is still a great game. I suggest playing through it at least once. Make sure to use SorrySoldOut's texture mod!

You don't get a whole lot out of TL1, just some cool boss battles I suppose. The overall gameplay and polish is better in TL2, and you don't really miss any story, there's not much of it to begin with.

YES! Torchlight 2 doesn't hold a candle to this game, as good as Torchlight was...

Torchlight II is better, no discussion here.....*WARNING: SPOILER for TL I and II follows!!!"

.....buuut if you don't finish TL I with a certain class you won't get that epic vibe feeling of the villain in II and in a very early on sidequest regarding him.

I played Torchlight 1, and the story is nothing extraordinary. Just skip it, and play Torchlight 2.
