How things are shared when playing LAN?



  • I've just started playing Torchlight 2, and I'm playing over a LAN with a friend (we are about level 10 now). We are doing the same quests together and I'm wondering how the experience, gold and loot are split between the players.

    Does each player earn the same amount of experience, apart of the number of mobs that each one kills? Do the monsters get stronger when there is more than one player in the world? Do we need to be close to each other to share experience? How the loot system work?



  • Experience is shared, if you're close enough to each other.

    Mobs are scaled up the more players are in an area.

    For these effects to happen you need to be roughly on the same screen as the other player(s)1.

    Loot is instanced for each player (i.e. you see separate loot), though of course you can trade.
