Hunting + Dream

This is a spear build using physical as it’s main source of damage and pierce as it’s secondary source. Using the recommended armor pieces, the build has a lot of extra skills that allows having many skills and not all of them need to be allocated max points in order to have the maximum effectiveness.

While leveling, max out Wood Lore, Take Down, Art of the Hunt, Study Prey and Psionic Touch, Distoration Wave, Lucid Dream, Trance of Wrath. The skills shown below account for increased skill points from the selected armor. If you need extra skill points, remove points from Call of the Hunt, Monster Lure, Summon Nightmare and Dream Image.

Use the best items you can find in your playthrough that compliment the skills being used. You most likely won’t find all the items listed in this guide, and that’s ok, it will perform regardless. The items are just a nice bonus.

This will be your starting class, start with getting Take Down, and making your way to Art of the Hunt. Wood Lore should not be overlooked, but focus more on the mastery bar. Most of the offensive skills will come from the dream mastery. Hunting is still the main mastery of this build since it’s skill are crucial to dealing with enemies. Study Prey is very very strong since it reduces enemies resistance to your attacks so they can be dealt with much faster. Monster Lure can be ignored, only take it if you need some more survivability by distracting enemies.

This will be your secondary class. Both classes in this build at equally important, but Hunting retains a higher importance thanks to it’s synergy with using spears. Unlock the second rank of the mastery skills, and focus on putting points in the 4 unlocked skills beings used. When they are near max, put more points into the mastery bar instead. Summon Nightmare will be helpful while leveling to deal extra damage, and distract enemies from you. The synergy between the 2 masteries will really start to show when you get to the 4th rank in each.


Attribute points cannot be reset in Titan Quest. Keep your attribute points until you have equipment you cannot equip and allocate them as needed. Always retain your points until you need to spend them and ensure you have the stats to equip your endgame gear.

Required stats to wear the below gear;
STR – 596
DEX – 432
INT – 0


Given the difficulty at acquiring specific armor in the game without any third-party software, take the following items as recommendations. At the end of the day, use what you find that helps improve your total damage and survivability. This build uses Physical as it’s main damage source. Keep your resistances as high as possible.

Poseidon's Helm

This build uses the Poseidon set. The helm offers very strong resistance increases and some minor increases to other stats.

Poseidon's Cuirass

This build uses the Poseidon set. The chest piece offers great survivability increases, and a very important Hunting skill increase

Stonebinder's Cuffs

Arguably the best pair of gloves that can be found in the game, solely for its increase to all skills. This armor piece will have other stats on it, but these are the guaranteed stats available.

Poseidon's Greaves

Part of the Poseidon set, while not offering any resistance increases, it does offer many other beneficial stats that are well received. Skill increase, stat and movement speed increase, health regen, all things that benefit the build.


Torc of the Ancestors

Chosen for it’s wide range of resistances it provides, some minor flat damage increase, and an increase to all skills.

Apollo's Will

The best ring that can be found for this build. Increase pierce damage, some skill increases, and resistances. If you can find this ring, definitely hang onto it.

Persephone's Ring

Another strong ring, but you can use 2 Apollo’s Wills if you prefer. The small reduction in energy cost on your skills, and some resistance/damage increases make it a nice ring to have.

Crosier of Osiris

A great relic to have for this build, being able to leech energy, and reduce the amount of energy loss when enemies leach from you is nice. If you want to play around with your options, Talisman of the Jade Emperor is great for reducing skill recharge rate, or Apples of Idun for survivability.


The Earth-Shaker

Part of the Poseidon set, a great weapon, not many offensive stats on it, but the increase to all hunting skills is great. In addition, with all 4 pieces equipped, you’ll receive a wide range of resistance increases and survivability stats.


Mainly chosen for it’s offensive potential, and it’s all skills increase. This build has a lot of extra skills from many different sources. This shield also provides decent resistance increases.
