How to Always Get Flawless Score in Torghast (Patch 9.1)

Recommended Posts

57651-torghast-needs-to-be-more-rewardin

Torghast comes with a new system that rewards you based on your final score, and here is a great write-up to help you earn 200+ points and get a 5-star Flawless score.

The guide comes from Reddit user DefinitelyIsNotKyle. If you want a Flawless score in Torghast, don't die. The first death is tolerated but every subsequent one will subtract 20 from your final score.

You should also avoid all traps, free all souls, complete all side quests, collect all Phantasma and destroy all Ashen Phylacteries, kill the final boss 3i6h 500+ leftover Phantasma, use a Ravenous Anima Cell Ravenous Anima Cell on a Floor 3 broker, and pick no Epic Anima Powers, according to the player.

Avoiding duplicate Anima Powers is also recommended. Empowerments should be used to kill the Floor 5 boss in 20 seconds. You can read the entire write-up below.

 You know a system is confused when someone need to make a 20 line+ guide to explain 'how to be good at it'.

 

Master degreee is less hard than this

gotta love how Blizz devs think:  "Hey what's something else in the game we can change so it feels like you have to min/max it every time to get the best reward?"

not really...the guide says "Ignore trying to avoid duplicate powers", which only makes sense when there are powers that let you hit for 700k a final boss.

What do you mean, "change?" If you play Torghast the way you've been doing it since day 1, you'll still probably get the 4 stars pretty trivially and unlock the next layers. This is just for those who want to put in the extra effort to do the extra levels.

Hell, I just finished a Mort'regar run where I died twice, took an epic power, completely failed in my plan to kill elites with the empowered buff, only got a 99% on a floor, only had a few hundred phasma at the last boss...and still received a flawless score. It's not nearly as tight as all the whining would suggest.

As someone who has genuinely enjoyed doing Torghast/Twisting Corridors since release, I still cannot wrap my head around Blizzard saying, "Players have given us feedback that the 5 death limit per player was too punishing, and we hear you, so we've decided to make even 1 death make or break your score and punish you for leaving a mawrat or pot left unbroken before completing your run.
 ❤️ You're welcome!"

Btw guys, if u will just break big amounts of phylactery and kill couple of mobs,while under the empowered effect that should be enough to get 220 points...i cant see a problem at all...  😄

This is kinda disingenuous. There's no "need" to hit the timer. Just get your soul ash and go on about your day.

For the people that want to challenge themselves and beat the metric, they can do that.

its actually just not true, i have only not gotten 200 points one time and that was the 1st time i went in and had no idea what i was doing as far as points and spent 40mins in the run......i did however do all the floors and fail to kill the last boss more than once under the old system depending on what boss i got and what powers i had which really sucked for the time spent

ok, i dont get this. got 4/5

didnt die, 100% every stage, didnt took epic trait, if possible didnt stack a trait, did all escort, did all objectives, didn use phantasma, made 400 phantasma out of the broker, lost 255 phantasma at the endboss cause a  phantasma add spawned but still had 800 phantasma left at the end, couldnt kill the add cause i got too much dmg and used ice block, my cheat death didnt procced once, and timewise i needed 30 minutes which i guess was ok.

what did i wrong? am i not allowed to use my timewarp or my burst cd or what? do i need more talents in that torghast cube? (just got 2 so far).

 

edit: ok, i just wanted to do a quick torghast run with my warrior twink and got 5/5, not a single floor 100%, still did all escorts and took some souls/objectives but not all, run took me 20 minutes, didnt take epic trait (just got offered 1), took op traits for execute always useable and doing 100% more dmg and stacked several bladestorm/recklessness duration traits still didnt die, used my phantasma and had 370 left. 206 points 

probably shouldnt have read that guide and try to act like it suggested in the first place with my main.

Wait. You're denying that leaving pots unbroken and mobs unkilled affects your score? You realize this is written on the same article you're commenting on... right...?

How many points do you need?  Yes it lowers your score Shackelbolt......what dying does not do is "make or break your score"..... I have died and not had 100% completions plus over time on the same run and still scored over 200 points.

Nowhere does this guide say it is impossible to get 5 stars after dying. It's simply describing how dying relates to the scoring system. 

I don't know why you think people don't believe you when you say you've gotten 5/5 before in Torghast.  We are happy for you! I'm sure most of us have, too! What is being discussed is whether the new Torghast system is an improvement over the old Torghast system. I cannot stress this point enough: The entire community could be getting 5/5 stars on every Torghast run on every alt on every wing and it still wouldn't demonstrate whether the changes were "good" changes to the Torghast system. 

I'd be happy to have a discussion with you on whether being punished for leaving a pot unbroken is engaging gameplay. That's subjective! But if you're going to continue to deny that a mechanic of the scoring system is a mechanic of the scoring system, I'm not really sure what can be gained from that discussion.

      We've seen the crazy Torghast speed runs with players just sprinting to the finish line in a mad dash to the sub-3 minute mark, but today we have... well a different kind of mad dash!
      Gitoff has gone for speed AND performance in layer 12, not only going pretty fast in general (perhaps not as fast as the recent 2 minute 56 second run, but definitely faster than most of us can ever hope to go), but also getting the 5-star flawless score as well!   The immediate comment in the video description? "Wasted at least 30seconds on floor 1 :(" Granted, Gitoff did have a nice little 9-minute Momentum buff ready before entering the run, but that's preparation for you!

      The final hotfixes of the week focus on Shards of Domination tuning.
      July 30 (Source)
      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination [With weekly maintenance in each region] Blood Link – The damage and healing amount has been increased at all ranks by 20%. [With weekly maintenance in each region] Winds of Winter – The amount of damage and healing stored by the Winds has been increased at all ranks by ~45%. Developers’ note: The difference between the three Rune Words for the Shards of Domination system is bigger than we want it to be. We have identified and fixed a bug in Winds of Winter which was preventing some damaging and healing abilities from counting towards its total, and we have retuned Winds of Winter and Blood Link so that the relative power between Rune Word bonuses is more balanced. Jotungeirr, Destiny's Call will now reset its cooldown at the end of boss encounters. Fixed an issue where Ticking Sack of Terror could trigger more than intended in the presence of multiple trinkets.

      As the WoW team mentioned in their statement, they have been removing references "that are not appropriate for our world". While we've noticed the /spit emote change on the BCC PTR, most/all of the other content removal seems to be centered on references to Alex Afrasiabi, who was talked about in the Activision Blizzard lawsuit. Today we'll take a look at some of the things already removed from the game and some that remain, as the removal seems to be an ongoing process.
      First off we have many references already removed, with the Fras Siabi and Foror names being replaced by Ezra Grimm and Nostro. There's many more items, NPCs etc. related to the two names above and others, which you can check out over on Wowhead. The most notable NPC change, however, is the one that received immediate retribution from players when news of the lawsuit broke, as Field Marshall Afrasiabi is now Field Marshall Stonebridge. For a longer list of some of the items that have been removed, check out Wowhead's article here.

      Source: Wowhead.
      However, it seems the work is still ongoing, as there are some references that have not been addressed yet, or some that didn't quite go through completely, like the below. You can see the while the NPC's name remains problematic, it is actually changed in the chat window when he speaks:

      Source: MrGraffio.
      While many references to Fras Siabi have been removed from Stratholme, like the mini-boss, quest etc, at least one remains:

      Source: Thekingchem.
      And then there's this very specific one, which might have even gone completely missed if yuvalal hadn't spotted it, as Foror is mentioned in a conversation between two NPCs in the Escape from Durnholde Keep/Old Hillsbrad Foothills Caverns of Time dungeon:

      Source: yuvalal.

      Clearly the removal of references is still ongoing, and even the ones missed above may already be removed from the game when you read this, as Blizzard have a lot of them to go through.

      Blizzard announced some nerfs for Shards of Domination set bonuses recently. They even made it live briefly, but have been reverted, as the devs didn't want to proceed with the change.
      Further Shard adjustments will be made in the coming days, but they don't want to nerf them now that many players have obtained and upgraded them.

      Items and Rewards
      Shards of Domination Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.

      Tired of looking up Soul Ash and Soul Cinder costs? Check out this simple macro that tells you how much of each you need to upgrade Legendary items in Patch 9.1!
      If you run the following macro in the chat, you will see how much Soul Ash / Soul Cinders you need for:
      A new Rank 1 and 4 Legendary; Rank 5 and 6 Soul Cinder costs; Soul Ash & Cinders cost from Rank 1 to 6. The macro was created by Shinela and improved by DoverBoys.
      /run local f,r,i,j,a,c=C_CurrencyInfo.GetCurrencyInfo,"\nRank","\124T3743738:0\124t","\124T4067362:0\124t" a=f(1828).quantity c=f(1906).quantity print(r,"1:",i,1250-a,r,"4:",i,5150-a,r,"5:",j,1100-c,r,"6:",j,1650-c,"/n",r,"1 to 6:",i,3900-a,j,1650-c) The following appears in the chat window when you run it.
