Best Affliction Warlock Anima Powers

During a Torghast run, there are plenty of chances to choose 1 between 3 different anima powers. Below we have compiled a list with the relative strength of each Anima Powers you can obtain within Torghast.

Keep in mind some powers might perform better when paired with different options, unlike others that can instead deliver results on their own.

Last but not least, the choice will often be among Potency, Survivability and Utility. Playstyle preference should be taken into account, therefore do not hesitate to experiment differently from this list.

"S" is best and "F" is worst.

Phantasma Anima Powers for Affliction Warlock

Occasionally you will be offered the ability to get Phantasma instead of an Anima Power, or increases to your Phantasma generation. It is hard to evaluate these, but we recommend choosing them when there is no "B"-tier or higher alternative Anima Power.


Affliction Warlock Playstyle for Torghast, Tower of the Damned

During the first 1, maybe 2 floors, with little to no anima powers, at higher difficulties the tower can be quite challenging, however warlocks as a pet class can deal with multiple target pulls easier than most other classes. Always pay attention to your pet health when soloing the tower, and consider rotating crowd control abilities in the event where the Voidwalker is taking too much damage. Health Funnel Icon Health Funnel can be used to prolong its life, but more often than not is just better to summon a new one.

  1. Maintain Agony Icon Agony on as many targets as possible
  2. Maintain Unstable Affliction Icon Unstable Affliction, and recast it on dying target to gain 1 extra shard
  3. Apply corruption manually if there are less than 3 targets together, otherwise use Seed of Corruption Icon Seed of Corruption
  4. Prioritise the usage of Phantom Singularity Icon Phantom Singularity on big pulls or high HP targets
  5. Spend your shards on Malefic Rapture Icon Malefic Rapture unless there are 5 or more targets stacked in which case use Seed of Corruption Icon Seed of Corruption
  6. Use Drain Soul Icon Drain Soul to snipe shards from dying targets

Make liberal use of your cooldowns in order to deal with difficult pulls, as normally the end floor mini bosses are not particularly challenging. Try instead to get to the floor 6 boss with all cooldowns ready as later it turns into a DPS race.


Anima Power Playstyle Changes for Affliction Warlock

While Affliction Warlock do not experience fundamentally different playstyle, as most of the powers are passives or QoL changes, there is a specific combination of powers that allow to spam Malefic Rapture Icon Malefic Rapture. By combining Tainted Blood Vial Icon Tainted Blood Vial, Glutton's Guise Icon Glutton's Guise, Claw of Endereth Icon Claw of Endereth and Thirsting Chain Icon Thirsting Chain you can self-sustain while casting Malefic Rapture Icon Malefic Rapture with a otherwise unattainable rate.
