Best Gear for Carino - Torchlight Infinite Carino build

The only legendaries that you'll want to pick up in the late game are going to be Furious Heart, Renowned General's Warboots, and Endless Spirit.

How to play the Torchlight Infinite Carino build

As for our playstyle, it's a pretty easy one to pick up. Lightning Shot does all of our damage, so we should be spamming that. Blink is our movement skill to get out of enemy abilities. We'll also want to use Life Source to regen some health when needed. Bloodthirst is a self buff, and we'll want to Fixate as many packs as we can.

And that's the guide. This character is a great build that with some min-maxing, you can scale this to the end game with ease.
