Classic Torghast: 0 Score and Getting Stuck With Anima Power

Recommended Posts


Did you know you can get 0 score in the tower? Here are some more "just Torghast things"™!

We have two players that had some interesting experiences and decided to share them, starting with itomeshi's fun fact, as among all the discussions about 4 and 5-starring the layers, they really wanted people to know a 0 score was very much possible, even with a group:

Combination of a Lord of Locks and another elite at the beginning of floor 2 on a Soul Forges 11 - when floor 1 gave us almost nothing in anima powers.

A few notes about the run for those interested:

Comp: Myself as Guardian Druid (ilvl 221), 2 Beast Mastery Hunters (221 and 218), 1 Survival Hunter (211)

Wing: The Soul Forges, Layer 11

(Per Icy-Veins, 237 is recommended for a Layer 11 - so we were definitely below the recommendation. Still, to go from 4*ing (nearly 5*ing) a 10 in the other Torghast this week with the same comp? That's a big gap.)


  • Cursed Souls: Soul Remnant’s Blessing is significantly empowered. However, every blessing received also lowers your stamina by 1%.
  • Rampage: Killing an enemy grants ability cost and cooldown reduction for 20 seconds.


  • Volatile Doom: Enemies have a chance to leave a Doomed Soul Remnant on death. After a brief delay, it explodes, dealing Shadow damage immediately and over 10 seconds to nearby players.
  • Unstable Phantasma: Phantasma will periodically coalesce and attempt to escape with your phantasma.
  • Avenger: Enemies grant nearby allies increased haste on death.

The hell pull:

  • Floor 2 was the 'serpentine room' layout, and the first room had the '2 elites sparring while small mobs watch'
  • Elites were a Mawsworn Crusher and a Lord of Locks
  • First pull was an accidental full-pack pull, but we weren't too worried.
  • Volatile Doom from the small mobs wiped out health quick (was hard to see)
  • Avenger made the elites hit like a truck for a while
  • Cursed Souls meant we just didn't have the HP to soak moderate hits.
  • Being so close to the spawn meant we had to full-wipe.

Other notes:

  • Floor 1 was not particularly hard, though a double elite pull was a bit grindy. We each had 6 anima powers, and none were great.
  • About halfway through Floor 2, we started getting enough anima powers that it was 'reasonable'.
  • Cursed Souls kept fluctuating - it seemed like it was a ranged thing based on how many players were near me.
  • We didn't see the Soul Forges debuff - I can't find any notes on how it may have changed. However, if it was active, that was a problem - and we didn't have the Ravinous Anima Cell fire reduction yet.
  • Boomkin probably would have been better for off healing and letting pets tank. That said, pets were getting trucked. I'm not sure tanks work w/o a healer.
  • The Survival Hunter had a particularly rough time. Without tank-level mitigation, he was getting legitimately one-shot.

And secondly, the more common of the two, N7-Warrior managed to get stuck in the tower, experiencing the true fate of non-Maw Walkers that end up in there, as the Sweet Dreams Sweet Dreams and pure vengeance towards a Maw Rat that went behind a closed gate caused them to get pretty stuck:


If you're looking for ways to NOT be stuck and actually 5-star the tower, you can check this Anima power-resetting tip instead.

Sheesh. Choreghast, indeed!

Lol what? For one, go solo, it's way faster than relying on others. Second, just don't *filtered* fail.

      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.

      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!
