Rune + Nature

This is a Spear build using pierce as it’s main source of damage and Physical 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 Rune Weapon, Thunder Strike, Rune of Life and Call of the Wild, Heart of Oak, Sylvan Nymph. The skills shown below account for increased skill points from the selected armor. If you need extra skill points, remove points from Runic Mines and Plague.
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 Rune Weapon to easily increase your weapon damage very early on. Following that, place at least 1 point in each skill going up to the third tier to get Menhir Wall. Just about every skill in the Rune mastery is useful to this build, so as you level, put a point into each one as you unlock them, don’t worry about maxing any of them early on, it’s more important to get different skills.

This will be your secondary class. It is a great complimenting class to the Rune mastery. Mostly focusing on the pets of the mastery, and survivability skills, this mastery will heavily increase your survivability as you play. Pets to deal extra damage/distract enemies. Heart of Oak and Regrowth to help your own health and survivability. Plague is a helpful damaging and debuff on enemies, but not crucial to the build. If you need extra points, take them from this skill tree first.


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 – 446
DEX – 487
INT – 504


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 Pierce as it’s main damage source. Keep your resistances as high as possible.

Stag Helm of Cernunnos

Part of the Horned God set, the set bonus is ok, but the pieces of gear from it are much stronger than anything else for this build. An amazing +2 to each mastery, decent resistances, and some extra damage, all great things to have.

Harness of Cernunnos

Mirroring the helm in this build, it has the same skill increase, and very nice resistances and damage increases. If only for the skill increase bonus, this is an amazing piece to have.

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.

Archmage's Clasp

If you don’t want/need the skill increase from Stonebinder’s, Archmage’s Clasp are a very strong alternatice. Offering better offensive and surivability stats, this is a great replacement piece for the build.

Redfist Battle Guards

A very strong pair of greaves, other stats will be shown on this armor piece, however, these are the guaranteed stats. This is a great boost to overall health and health regen, once paired with a strong relic/charm, this is a very strong piece of gear.


Torc of Cenunnos

Part of the Horned God set, offering a nice range of resistances, and more importantly is has and increase to all the skills we use with the build. This pendant comes highly recommended with the build.

Wraithlord Jewel of the Tinkerer

No image available, “Jewel” is the name of ring, and getting the correct “Prefix” and “Suffix” will make this ring the best in slot item. If you can, use 2 of these rings.  “of the Tinkerer” is more important than “Wraithlord”. Understandably, getting a ring with these modifiers can be very difficult without any third party programs, using Apollo’s Will is a strong contender.

Apollo's Will

For this build, Apollo’s Will helps a lot by increasing your projectile speed and some decent resistance increase. Feel free to use 2 of these to double dip on the projectile speed increase.

Talisman of the Jade Emperor

This is the best relic to have, and this applies to many other builds. This is mainly because of it’s easy reduced recharge rate to your skills. If you’re noticing a lack of resistances or survivability, consider using Apples of Idun instead.


Wild Hunt

Part of the Horned God set, this spear’s stats are great not only for yourself, but for your pets too. You’ll receive an increase to your pierce damage and attack speed, your pets will receive and increase to total damage, and convert damage to health, greatly increasing their survivability.

Exotic Carapace

Exotic Carapace is a great shield, it will have extra stats available, but by default these are the stats that will always be present. Deimos could be a decent choice as well.
