Going to start a quote list, Arceus knows why.
Quintili Vare, legiones redde!“ ('Quintilius Varus, give me back my legions! (Emperor Augustus)
"...your servant still doth have twelve warships under his command and he is still alive, that the enemy shall never be safe in the West Sea." (Admiral Yi)
"If I had two of you, the only solution would be to have one hang the other". Napoleon added that he would give Vandamme command of the vanguard were he (Napoleon) to launch a campaign against Lucifer in Hell.
Angry at his father, who had long since retired to a contemplative life in southwestern Anatolia, Mehmed II wrote, "If you are the Sultan, come and lead your armies. If I am the Sultan I hereby order you to come and lead my armies." It was only after receiving this letter that Murad II agreed to lead the Ottoman army.
"Poles before hoes"= Me 2015.

Once you reach level 32 in this mastery, these are the skills to focus on. Any order for them will do. Remember, it's better to max out a skill (or put a single point in the skill if that's what I have listed for it) before starting up on other skills.

Ternion Attack: Max this out. At max level this causes your attacks to deal 240% more damage. Only use this if you wield a staff as your weapon.
Arcane Lore: Max this out. Causes your Ternion Attack to deal AOE damage.
Death Ward: Ignore. This is a bad ability and not needed when you have the heals provided by Nature.
Deathchill Aura: Max out. Damages nearby enemies and slows them down.
Ravages of Time: Max out. Weakens enemies around you, making them deal less damage and take more damage.
Necrosis: Max out. Low priority skill. Lowers the resistances of enemies around you to certain types of damage.
Life Drain: Max out. Damages enemies and heals you. Not as needed with the heals provided by Nature.
Cascade: Max out. Life Drain chains to multiple enemies.
Enslave Spirit: Max out. Takes control of an enemy, causing them to fight on your side for the duration of the effect.
Summon Outsider: Max out. Summons a powerful Outsider to fight by your side for a short time. Unlike most pets it does not stay around, but the Outsider does a ton of damage.
Vision of Death: Ignore this.
Dark Covenant: Max this out. Costs you health over time but increases speed and energy regen of you and nearby allies in exchange. Useful with the Nature class thanks to your heals, even more useful when fighting alongside me, with my aura that increases health regen enough that you should actually end up taking no damage from this.
Unearthly Power: Max this out. Makes Dark Covenant cost you more life, but it greatly increases the damage you and nearby allies deal in return. Very powerful with Nature and me to provide you with healing.
Summon Liche King: Max this out, although you can have it be at level 5 for a time and focus on other skills instead. Provides you with a pet liche. Incredibly powerful pet. At level 5 it gets an AOE attack. High priority skill.
Death Nova: Max this out. Gives the Liche an attack that deals a wave of damage to enemies.
Wraith Shell: One point in this. Allows the Liche to take less damage.
Arcane Blast: Max this out. Gives the Liche an ability which deals massive damage to enemies, stuns them, and slows them.
Spirit Ward: Ignore this. Only effects undead enemies. This is only really useful in Act 1, 2, and the beginning of Act 4.
Circle of Power: Ignore this.

Once you reach level 32 in this mastery, these are the skills to focus on. Any order for them will do. Remember, it's better to max out a skill (or put a single point in the skill if that's what I have listed for it) before starting up on other skills.

Concussive Blow: Only use this skill if you're using a club as your weapon. Do NOT pick up this skill otherwise, as it becomes useless without a club. I'd recommend not using this even if you do use a club.
Adrenaline: I'd recommend not using this skill. The chance to proc is too low for this skill to be relied upon.
Rally: One point in this. Normally I would say to max this out, but this skill in its base form is only a heal (plus some armor) which is something Nature already does really well. However the upgrades for this are fantastic.
Inspiration: Max this out. Provides a speed increase and energy regen to Rally, plus increases Rally's duration. The duration increase is the big thing, although a point in this for the speed increase is nice too.
Defiance: Max this out. Protection for those under the influence of Rally. It increases elemental resistances, which is good, and also reflects some of the damage inflicted to people under Rally back at the enemy. This is rather powerful and is useful with pets.
Battle Awareness: Max this out. Increases the armor of you and nearby allies as well as their ability to dodge physical attacks. Very useful.
Focus: Max this out. Not as high priority a skill, but it allows those under the influence of Battle Awareness to have a greater chance of successfully block an attack with their shield.
Iron Will: One point in this. It has some uses but one point in this should be enough. It's not often you encounter enemies who stun, entrap, or freeze you.
Quick Recovery: Max this out. Allows you to block more attacks with your shield. I think this ability isn't as needed because I'll be doing most of the tanking, since I have my bulky pets and an ability that makes me impervious to damage for about eight seconds.
Shield Charge: Ignore this ability.
Batter: Ignore this ability.
Armor Handling: Max this out. Allows you to use better armor. I think this is the skill you should max out first in this class.
Shield Smash: Max this out. Provides a chance to hit the enemy with your shield, also making them easier to hit and deal crits to.
Disable: Max this out. Provides a chance to damage the enemy and lower their attack speed.
Pulverize: Max this out. Provides a chance to deal an area of effect attack.
Colossus Form: Max this out. Turns you into a giant that for a time allows you to deal more damage and also absorbs most damage thrown your way. Very good at taking down tough enemies. Long cooldown means that you'll mostly be using this on hero monsters and bosses or as a last resort.

Secondary Mastery:

Once you reach level 8 you can get a second mastery. I would suggest waiting until sometime around the third act, sometime around when you begin to follow the Silk Road to pick up your second mastery. Your play style will be more defined so you know what you like. The first thing to do once you pick your second mastery is to bring it up to level 32. The stats increase provided by this will be needed.

I suggest choosing between either the Defense or Spirit mastery. If you like using melee weapons then Defense is the best choice. If you like using the Staff and magical attacks then choose Spirit.

Some more tips for Titan Quest:

Right-clicking on your pet's portrait allows you to choose their behavior. I always put my dudes on aggressive. Allows them to move a bit further away from you without having to teleport back to you.

Item types/rarities:
Brown=Charm or Essence. Can be used to enchant your items to provide buffs. Also can be used along with a formula to create an artefact. Five fragments of a charm form a complete charm and three fragments of an essence for a complete essence.
White=Common. Items with no additional benefits to them. Only use these in the early game. Replace with yellows as soon as possible.
Yellow=Uncommon. Items with minor benefits. Replace with greens, blues, and purples when possible.
Green=Rare. Items with strong benefits, although not very many of them. The highest tier of item that can be enchanted with charms and essences. This means that these are sometimes better than blue or purple items.
Blue=Epic. Items with powerful benefits and sometimes even abilities. I have an epic hammer for example, it has an ability that provides a chance to create a searing spot of sunlight around an enemy that hits me with a ranged attack. Some items are part of an armor set, meaning that they provide additional benefits the more you're wearing something of that set.
Purple=Legendary. The highest level of item. Very powerful, often increasing your skills and providing tons of benefits. Cannot be found on Normal difficulty.

Enemy types:
Normal. Normal monsters. Not much of a threat on their own on Normal.
Champion. Monsters that have a skill of some sort. For example the Centaur Elders create a banner that buffs all monsters nearby. These are dangerous and should be focused down first.
Hero. They have a star over their head. They know a variety of skills that they'll use against you. Drop very good loot and also provide more experience.
Boss. Most bosses you'll face as part of the story or the side quests. Dangerous enemies with powerful attacks. Be careful against these. There are five optional bosses that are only available on higher difficulty levels. These are foes who are even more powerful than the final bosses. Thankfully you'll have me by your side to deal with the Manticore (arguably the second hardest boss in the game), the Dragon Lich (third hardest boss), and the Hydra (a boss only available on Legendary difficulty and the hardest boss in the game).

Turns out I'm too high leveled for you to get any experience if you play with me right now. :(

You said you had another friend with Titan Quest? If so my suggestion if you want to play the game alongside me is to continue playing on your own or with that friend and beat the game on Normal difficulty (it's not that hard). Then play through Epic difficulty until you reach the city of Memphis in Egypt. The enemies past that point should be a high enough level for me to fight alongside you without too much experience loss.

If you'd rather just not go through that, I understand. It seems like you were having fun though. And I can also answer any questions you have about the game if you are going to continue playing it. And eventually if you keep playing you will reach the point where I am able to play alongside you.
