Spotlight: Torghast, Tower of the Damned

08 Oct 0 views World of Warcraft
At the end of Battle for Azeroth, former Horde leader Sylvanas Windrunner invaded the Icecrown Citadel, battled the Bolvar Fordragon, and destroyed the Lich King's crown, opening a gap between the world of the living and the Shadowlands. A mysterious tower appeared above the Citadel itself. This is Torgast — the lair of the Jailer, the Lord of the Maw and part-time main antagonist of the next expansion, Shadowlands. Today at ShineBoost Blog we will take a deeper look!

Torghast is a rogue-like dungeon, intended for the passage alone or in groups. The roles of players (tank, healer, or damage dealer), unlike other activities, are not particularly important. At its core, the tower resembles the “Bloody Palace” from Devil May Cry, the goal is the same — to climb as high as possible, clearing crowds of enemies along the way. At the same time, halls, corridors, opponents, traps and their location change with each entry. So you will not be able to stick to the same tactics, you will have to adapt to the situation.

At the same time, Blizzard did not use procedural generation as in the Diablo series. Instead, the developers manually created modules that “make up” the dungeon. According to them, due to this Torghast looks more natural and not like a chaotic set of rooms. So you will come across familiar design corners in any case.

Unlocking Torghast, Tower of the Damned

After pledging yourself to a Covenant at level 60, you will be offered a questline which will take you to The Maw, introduce you to the quests and geography, and unlock Torghast itself. You will also be introduced to the Runecraver and unlock its chamber. After completing this questline, Torghast will become available for you to run at will.

The structure of the tower

Wings of Torghast

Torghast, Tower of the Damned, consists of 6 Wings, each with its own unique style, opponents and bosses – Skoldus Hall, Fracture Chambers, Soulforges, Coldheart Interstitia, Mort’regar, and The Upper Reaches. Additionally, the 7th block is available – Twisting Corridors, containing styles and opponents from all other Wing for “endless” run, but you can only get cosmetic rewards in it. Each week, 2 Wings out of 6 are available for competition (they replace each other in order) and an additional 7 Wing.

Layers of Wings

Each Wing of Torghast is divided into 8 layers. Each layer consists of 6 floors: the first layer consists of 1-6 floors, the second layer consists of 7-12 floors, the third layer consists of 13-18 floors, and so on. The higher the number of the layer and floor, the more difficult the opponents you meet in it. After completion of the layer, players return to the base level of Torghast. Then there they can talk to the Wayfider, which will take them to the next layer, where a new run will start. Each 3rd Floor of every Layer is a Break Room and each 6th Floor of every Layer is a Boss Room. Floors 1, 2, 4, and 5 will all end with an Empowered mob guarding the portal.

Initially, the player can only pass the first layer, and to open the next one, you need to go through all of them in order. At the same time, access to higher layers is saved for future weeks, so after opening them, the player can start the passage, for example, not from the first, but immediately from the third layer of their choice.

The Wayfinder

Once you have completed the any layer of Torghast, you will notice a clickable plate close to the zone in portal when you enter a Layer. This is the Wayfinder.

https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/19944.jpghttps://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/19943.png

The Wayfinder allows you access to any of the Layers of a Wing that you have already unlocked. The UI shows you what Levels you have unlocked in the current Wing, and which Layers you’ve already received weekly rewards from for this week. It also shows how much Soul Ash you’ll get for completing each Layer, updating for any low level Layers that you haven’t collected rewards from yet. Completing a Layer grants you any rewards for lower Layers, so you can start wherever you want; no need to start at the bottom every time. To unlock a Layer, all you need to do is complete it.

Soul Ash

Quantity by layers

For completion of each layer in the main Wings (except for Twisting Corridor), players receive a special currency – Soul Ash. In the table below, you can see how much currency is given for completing each of the layers. The numbers are relevant for the current beta version of the add-on and may change by the release.

LayerSoul Ash
115
210
35

64
73
83

Receiving Soul Ash

Soul ash can only be obtained from each layer of each wing once a week, meaning that if you complete both wing during the week, the player gets the maximum amount possible. If a player starts a run from a higher layer than the initial one, then they will receive a reward for this layer and all previous layers (for example, if they start from layer 3, they will receive currency for layers 3, 2, and 1). If the run ends in failure, the reward currency will not be issued, but the player will have the opportunity to pass a simpler layer.

The Jailer’s Chains

As soon as you enter Torghast you will get a debuff, The Jailer’s Chains, which prevents you from adjusting Equipment, Talents, and Specializations. This can be countered by a Refuge of the Damned bubble which suppresses not only the The Jailer’s Chains, but also the effects of Torments. It also hides you from enemies. There is a Refuge of the Damned in the Torghast enterance way and on each 3rd Floor.

Sidequests

Sidequests are simple quests that need to be completed in order to get the anima sphere, for example:

https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/guide/images/21307.jpg?maxHeight=182https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/18873.jpg

Players can also get materials to create legendary items and, for the release of captive souls, the currency Freed soul, which is necessary to improve the Covenant sanctuaries.

Death limitations and Tarragrue

Death

With the passage of Torghast players are limited not by time but by number of deaths. On each floor of the tower, you can die a certain number of times before you will be searched for by Tarragrue.

Tarragrue

https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/18861.jpghttps://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/18862.jpg

If you die the maximum number of times, a timer starts counting down 30 seconds until the Tarragrue appears and you can track it on the filling bar to the right of the screen (the creature will not appear if you die less than allowed). After this time passes, a Tarragrue will appear at the beginning of the floor, which will slowly go to the end of the level. As ordinary beings, Tarragrue has a one-shot radius, once in which you will provoke it and if he catches you, he’ll kill you with one blow. If Tarragrue kill all the players or have time to reach the end of the floor before them, then run through the tower is over.

Anima Powers

Anima Power

Anima powers are powerful abilities that are very important for completing the tower, as they strengthen the character and open up various bonuses for him. Amina powers are contained in red spheres, after clicking on which in a separate window you will be asked to choose one of 1-3 random bonuses.

https://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/18867.jpghttps://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/blog/images/18876.jpg

Getting anima powers

Anima power spheres can be obtained in different ways:

Currencies and Brokers

Phantasma

In the course of a run, Torghast players get local currency – Phantasma. Phantasm is extracted from the bodies of defeated opponents, from destroyed objects, and thanks to the forces of the anima. Phantasma is saved only for the current run, and if you leave the tower, you will lose all the remaining amount.

Vendors-brokers

Phantasma can be spent on purchasing various upgrades from local brokers, who periodically appear on the floors of the tower. The number of items purchased from these merchants is limited. You can purchase, for example:

Stygia

Stygia is a currency native to the Maw, the endgame zone of Shadowlands, also drops from clearing layers of Twisted Corridors.

Twisted Corridors: Layer 8 — Reward: Corridor Creeper mount

Crafting Legendaries

In contrast to the usual raids and dungeons, the main purpose of the visit Torghast is gathering materials to create legendary items. They can be found in chests scattered throughout the tower. Also one of the collected currency be exchanged for cosmetic rewards. It is possible that the mini-bosses will drop the usual armor, but Blizzard has not said anything about this yet.

https://leonardo.osnova.io/e1f7ab27-5f7c-6b66-f3cb-dcd12c87d18e/-/resize/700/

The Runecarver, who can be found in the Forge of Dominion in Torghast, will help you craft legendaries — a separate portal leads to it at the beginning of the tower. He was the one who gave the powers to Frostmourne and the Lich King’s armor, so there is no doubt about his abilities. To create powerful equipment, you will need only four elements: a piece of armor (it can be made by blacksmiths, leatherworkers, tailors and jewelers), 2 Stat Scrolls, 100 Soul Ash and the Memory of the Runecarver Legendary Recipe for a Legendary Power.

Shine Boost Reviews

I have played WoW for about 12 years. I have seen many companies come and go, a lot of which seem a little shady. This is not one of those. Excellent service, very quick and easy to use. Extremely well spoken staff, ultra professional. I highly recommend this service. Originally posted from Trustpilot

In a game where leveling alternate characters is draining enough, getting the baseline gear to start getting groups sounded like a headache. The ShineBoost team took me through the content I wouldn't have been able to tackle for another month, after grinding. Because of them, I'm now self-sufficient and able to play the content I want to. The team was on-time and quick to get me back to playing the game. I would highly recommend them. Originally posted from Trustpilot

I have been playing WOW since Vanilla. I travel often for work, but when I am home I like to play in premades vs raid finder. I have used other services before, but this one has been super easy and professional to work with. Things start on time and they deliver what they promise. Will continue to work with.

Incredible Service! It's very rare I find a team that will work as diligently to make sure that everything runs smoothly. I have used their various services throughout Battle for Azeroth, and I am incredibly pleased. They do everything to make the customer happy and I've managed to get a large number of achievements with them. Everything is done in a timely manner and I have no regrets.

Very friendly staff and exceptional services. Very smooth raid run and fast leveling services. In additions, they do accept reasonable requests to tailor with one's needs and go from there. Strongly recommend to anyone that looking for a great boosting services. Will definitely reach out to them for more services in the future, i.e., PVP boosting. Originally posted from Ownedcore

Soul Grape

100% the best I was hesitant to buy the service as I have never been the one to purchase a carry before, but I'm so glad I tried it out. Amazing support on discord, and the speed of the run was outstanding. Originally posted from Trustpilot

Cam Puertas

Great service. Found them in game and they offered a full heroic self play. I couldn't resist. Then i bought a mythic key run with the guaranteed timer. Got they key done and they were still generous enough to give me two pieces of 430 loot, an i got nothing personally might i add. This was also all in the same day within finding them. Who ever runs the discord is very generous and informative and is willing to answer any questions regardless of them having a FAQ on their website.They made the experience the first day a whole lot better for me, and that's why i will continue to spend my money with them.

Midnight Lupus

After years of playing the game another rep grind is beyond painful however a must have for flying in the new expansions. The team was beyond helpful and completely flexible around my gaming times and work times. totally worth it, service and the experience is beyond simple and trustworthy. Couldn't recommend more especially over stupidly expensive alternatives. Originally posted from Trustpilot
