Description
Synergies is full Overhaul and balance mod for Torchlight 2. The mod won BEST OVERHAUL OF THE YEAR from ModDB's mod of the year award, as well as was labelled #1 free download of the summer from PCgamer magazine!

This MOD, being a full conversion mod, adds a lot of new content to the game. More specifically it adds :

Towns in Synergies
- Synergies adds 2 Custom made towns ( Table Mountain and Selrock) each one of them has it's own specific vendors.

Changes to the Balance of the Game
- Reworked difficulty settings. Synergies is built around Veteran and Elite, but the MOD itself is much harder than the Vanilla version of the game
- Random affixes on each monster that you encounter, making them unique.
- Reworked Skill unlock Rate, they unlock at a earlier rate, but take longer to progress between points, ending at or above vanilla standards.
- Reworked Fame Levels, a total of 50 to unlock!
- Reworked Enchantment Stats, lower stat enchants allow for end game progression and better balance.
- Vanilla Characters Skills have begun to be reworked to address the balance changes. We plan to continue tweaking them.
- The ability to store gold and to transfer it between your characters through the money changer!
- The ability to summon your Stashes everywhere
- Respec and Stat potions
- Gear is better, monsters are harder, all bosses are harder.
- Green and Blue magical items have better affix rates, Uniques have better base DPS and Armor.
- Two handed and dual wielding have better bonus's to bring them closer to the benefit of wearing a shield.
- Monsters spawn more numerous throughout the game

Crafting in Synergies
- A whole new crafting system (Soulcrafting), only found in Synergies for end game armor!
- Chaos Ember Crafting
- Craftable Damage absorption gems (up to 7% in DR)

Synergies Legendary Items
- Over 300 new Legendary equipment, 30 in general play through, 90 in tier0 content and 240+ in tier1 content!

Endgame Dungeons in Synergies
1) Derinkuyu Raid (Tier0)
Derinkuyu is a custom dungeon only found in Synergies. In here you will find 18 Synergies exclusive Bosses that each drop a Synergies Legendary equipment.
Getting to the bosses is really hard because you have to fight your way through hundreds of unique monsters. Each and every one of the portals is guarded by a Guardian Spirit, can you defeat him ?

2) Or'ak Basin Zone (Tier 0.5)
This is the Troll homeland. This place is filled with Ancient Trolls that try to kill you. In here you will find Synergies Legendary equipment and Legendary Skulls in order to make your character stronger, this zone is also subjected to a minor debuff making it harder to progress through without a end game loadout.

3) Darknessfalls Raid (Tier1)
Darknessfalls is an outdoor raid dungeon that will sport all the newest and hardest boss encounters in the dungeon, and be the place where you collect all the highest end game items within synergies. The zone has a debuff to the player allowing for more growth and longevity in the loot searching.

Alternative leveling dungeons
4)The Realms of Discord are a series of small dungeons all chained to each other. It is currently the best place to level up your characters because every monster scales to your level

5) The Unstable Embers (alternative leveling)
6) Clockwork series of swarm maps


Custom Classes in Synergies
- Synergies offers currently 3 custom Classes, these are :
1) The Necromancer - the spell casting, melee capable minion master is back at it in SynergiesMOD!
2) The Paladin - The close in your face fighting style, being developed by Ghostblade!
3) The Warlock - A duo chargebar using Melee capable spellcaster that is extremely unique in its design. Take on the Nether or Hell itself, play a warlock!
We are currently making plans in order to add more classes to the game.

Other Changes
- The ability to find and Summon Mercenaries in order to help you with your fights, found in end game dungeons.
- New HP / Mana and Fame UI
- New pets associated with the Necromancer, Paladin and Warlock
- New Hero monsters
- New Elite monsters
- New Rare Dragons
- New Ancient Trolls
- New Roaming world bosses in the regular play through!
- New avenging Angels


Future of Synergies
Our goal is to completely convert Torchlight 2's balance into a more unforgiving and exciting experience. Ultimately we want to make an act 5 and likely act 6 for this game. Our Dev team is working on new Textures for models, maps, new classes, new sounds for the characters, and icons for the characters. Expect to be surprised by the quality of our releases and a dev team which is dedicated to being active both in development but community building. On top of that we the creator of this mod, Salan, has worked for over 13 months on this project, sometimes with excessively large updates on a weekly to daily basis.

WARNING ON MOD CONFLICTS and PERMISSION OF USE OF SYNERGIES IN ANY COMPILATION.
SynergiesMOD adds or changes 18000+ files and is updated in an aggressively active manner. This mod is known to conflict with other large conversions, or compilation mods. Combining use of two large mods seems to work generally in Singleplayer but can cause SYNC issues with Multiplayer where the host of the game crashes to desktop. This is purely a mod conflict. Mods known to conflict with synergies and NOT work in the Multiplayer enviroment: TL2 Essentials (which shares close to 1200+ files with synergies).

Be aware that Synergies BINDS your saves, back up your save before playing synergies if you intend to remove it.

And ya Trout, its one of the reasons Synergies has been as successful as it has. Availability is the only reason I have built the artists I needed, wouldn't have befriended them otherwise.

actually if you come to my forums at "www.synergiesmod.com" I am going to be doing some outlander reworks soon.. Some people started listing things they would like to see updated as well. I will do whatever makes it better but doesn't break it as much as possible.

Thanks man ^^

On a similar note, I'd also like to see Chaos Burst building charge like the other spam attacks for Outlander like Rapid Fire and Glaive Throw do. Currently it does not and it forces you to put a point in bramble wall and attack it to build up charge before your fights or to use your auto-attack a ton mid-fight. That or install a completely separate mod (which I've done for the time being) but I think it'd be nice to not have to do that. One of my outlander friends refuses to use Chaos Burst because of the lack of charge generation. If you disagree and want to keep it the way it is that's cool and all 'cause we can just install the other mod but yeah.

Thanks for being so open to the community. New to Synergies and I really appreciate this level of transparency/availability.

Raiden, I sent you a invite on steam, I want to know how you made that happen. I can't replicate it. I just tried to make what you did happen. I was able to make it stack while standing absolutely still 1 time to 150 for a fraction of a second. Most of the time it drops off at 75% as intended. The way the skill works is when you start casting it applies 75%, when you FINISH casting it removes it. Nothing I tried did what you are doing, do you have other mods altering the skill, or did you break the game in some manner? What skill investment were you at? the skill is working 100% as intended with all my tests.

Trout I removed that for the next patch, and I agree it should have the same functionality in that sense

King Coon there is a synergies compatible Tl2 essentials mod out there, read the last paragraph of the mod description up above. Tl2 essentials usually doesn't work with synergies after one of us updates their mods. Its to do with some dungeon layouts conflicting.
