What is the Torchlight Infinite Season 2 theme?

The seasonal theme for Torchlight Infinite Season 2 is Blacksail. We're fighting Void space pirates. The mechanic in this season only activates after the campaign finishes up and you're getting into maps. There's a few components to this mechanic.

First, while you're in a map, you'll see specially marked enemies around the map. Killing these will enable Void Sea Flames. The boss will also be one of the enemies marked. Each of these flames will have an effect attached to it.

After the boss is defeated, a spire called the Void Sea Seal will spawn. Upon activating the spire, you'll be asked to choose one of the flames to put into the Seal. Then a few waves of monsters will spawn. Kill them off to get some loot.

The second aspect to this is sealing Whispers in the Void Sea Terminal. There will be an indicator at the top of your screen. Clicking this will give you three options of Whispers to seal. After sealing six whispers, you'll be able to portal to a short encounter. Clearing this encounter will grant you a chest of loot with the effects of each Whisper you sealed.

This is the main encounter but there is also a pinnacle boss around the theme, but at the time of writing very few if any have beaten the boss yet.

Hero Traits

There are two new hero traits that were introduced to the game as well. They are for Rehan and Moto. Rehans is called Berserker - Seething Spirit. This hero trait periodically summons a spirit that uses an a main melee skill. Moto's new hero trait is called Charge Calling. This gives a buff to his minions, and when the minions lose that buff, they self-destruct on enemies. Both of these hero traits are available for direct purchase, each costing around $9.99.
