General Information

On this page, we tell you all you need to know to prepare your Balance Druid before entering Torghast and then how to pick up the right Anima Powers once you are inside!


Torghast as a Balance Druid

This page will guide you on how to get the most out of your Balance Druid in Torghast, Tower of the Damned. For more information about Torghast in general, check out our dedicated pages below.


Talents for Torghast as Balance Druid

Below are some well rounded talents that will help you burn down and kite a good portion of each floor. You can also more towards to healing portion of the class tree if you would prefer the sustain.

You can easily import the talent tree below into the game with the following string:


Playstyle for Torghast as Balance Druid

  • Stealth is one of our most powerful abilities in rushing to the end of each floor. Look to avoid most normal enemies by going into Cat Form Icon Cat Form and stealthing past detection when you can with Prowl Icon Prowl.
  • Balance Druids are kiting machines. If you ever find yourself in a pinch, feel free to use any of your low cooldown utility spells. Keep your distance using mobility (Dash Icon Dash / Wild Charge Icon Wild Charge), displacements (Typhoon Icon Typhoon / Ursol's Vortex Icon Ursol's Vortex), and now even stuns (Mighty Bash Icon Mighty Bash). On top of all this, Stellar Drift Icon Stellar Drift can keep you mobile and keep your DPS up for as long as you can maintain the buff.
  • Use your cooldowns often to clear out dangerous packs and Elites or Bosses. Always use your cooldowns before the end of a floor as any 3-minute or longer cooldowns will reset between floors.
  • Use Entangling Roots Icon Entangling Roots to separate dangerous enemies when possible. Burst down your one target and swap to the other afterwards.
  • Balance Druid gains even more access to healing spells through both Anima Powers as well as talenting Restoration Affinity Icon Restoration Affinity. When low, focus on getting away and getting yourself healed up the best you can before the mobs reach you again.

Best Covenant for Torghast

For solo climbing, we would recommend Night Fae. The small mobs in Torghast are normally not hard to burn down with our base kit and Anima Powers but single target is a bit more difficult to overcome. Night Fae also have Covenant-specific Anima Powers which heavily buff Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits. Some bosses or elites can be slain in one Convoke or at least severely damaged.


Best Soulbinds for Torghast

Niya with Night Fae is the obvious choice as the large Mastery burst from Grove Invigoration Icon Grove Invigoration helps with rushing down each floor. If you decide to choose Venthyr, Nadjia the Mistblade has no positional requirement and you can carry buffs from pack to pack.


Best Conduits for Torghast

If you are running Night Fae, you should always use Conflux of Elements Icon Conflux of Elements which is a flat bonus to your elite nuking Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits. Overall, Umbral Intensity Icon Umbral Intensity and Fury of the Skies Icon Fury of the Skies are good for the hybrid nature of Torghast.

For the Endurance and Finesse conduits, Tough as Bark Icon Tough as Bark will help you mitigate more damage while staying in form and Tireless Pursuit Icon Tireless Pursuit will let you shift periodically to keep your movement speed up while kiting.


Best Balance Druid Anima Powers

Torghast is a rogue-like dungeon crawl where you gain additional powers to help you tackle the challenges inside the tower. Here we will go over some of the Anima Powers to keep a look out for.

Not all powers will be listed, just those that have been tested or those that seem like they would synergize well with the class. Those not listed have either little information surrounding them or are too poor to use. If you are interesting in lists with all Druid and Generic Anima Powers, please use the buttons below.

Understand that this is a very loose and subjective tier-list of items and that different playstyles will prefer different powers and some powers activate others. For example, Draught of Waning Twilight Icon Draught of Waning Twilight is unusable by itself but when combined with a general power such as Corruption Antenna Icon Corruption Antenna, it can become quite good.


S-Tier Anima Powers for Balance Druid


A-Tier Anima Powers for Balance Druid


B-Tier Anima Powers for Balance Druid


C-Tier Anima Powers for Balance Druid


D-Tier Anima Powers for Balance Druid


Elethium Powers

Elethium Powers are strong buffs that come with severe drawbacks that can range from healing reductions to loss of character control. The ones with the healing reduction passives require you to play much safer as you wont be able to easily top yourself off if you hit a rough patch and are considered "win more" options. Elethium Veil Icon Elethium Veil and Elethium Weights Icon Elethium Weights are strong throughput increases, but can cause personal frustrations down the line.
