The launch of Torchlight
is fast approaching, and so far, we've gotta' say, it looks pretty damn
good. With that in mind, Perfect World Entertainment recently sent us
some pics of the classes, and a little bit of class description.
Whether you choose the dual-wielding Destroyer, the fast ranged action
of the Vanquisher, or the Ember-channeling Alchemist, the game's

An endless wanderer, who is drawn to conflict with his dual-wielding

mines beneath. As an expert marksman, the Vanquisher is able to take
enemies from afar as well as use traps to confuse and deliberate her
foes from all directions.

Drawn to the power of Ember as a cornerstone of his magical art, the
Alchemist came to Torchlight for his own ends. Being the largest cache
of Ember ever found, the temptation may lead the Alchemist never being
able to break free of its influence and ultimately to his downfall. The
power of Ember is beyond imagining, but the price is very
