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


Best Fire Mage Anima Powers

During a Torghast run, you will be getting many different Anima Powers which you have to choose between. Below we have listed the relative strength of the Anima Powers you can obtain on Torghast, so you can go through the list and find the option that is listed the highest when you have to make a decision. For a complete list of Anima Powers, please refer to the following pages.

It is worth noting, that some Anima Powers are not strong on their own, but become extremely potent combined with other Anima Powers. We will highlight this in the list below as well.

Lastly, a lot of Anima Powers let you pick between survivability, mobility, utility and damage. What you pick here largely comes down to personal preference and your playstyle, so do not be afraid to deviate from the list below.

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


S-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


A-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


B-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


C-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


D-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


F-Tier Anima Powers for Fire Mage


Phantasma Anima Powers for Fire Mage

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.


Fire Mage Playstyle for Torghast, Tower of the Damned

Without any Anima Powers and without running Grisly Icicle Icon Grisly Icicle, Fire Mage struggles a lot in Torghast. However, there are some very strong Anima Power combinations that can make Torghast a breeze if you get lucky on these powers. Below we will first go over the playstyle without any big Anima Power combinations, and then in the section after that we will go over some combinations that are extremely strong and impact your playstyle significantly.

  • If there are packs with 2 or more ranged / caster enemies, use Polymorph Icon Polymorph on one of them, and quickly nuke the other(s).
  • Constantly use Blazing Barrier Icon Blazing Barrier against packs with casters/ranged enemies.
  • Use Frost Nova Icon Frost Nova as much as possible against melee enemies. Without Grisly Icicle Icon Grisly Icicle / Grisly Icicle Icon Grisly Icicle, get maximum distance from the enemies after using Frost Nova before you start to damage them.
  • Shimmer Icon Shimmer is very valuable to kite enemies, so make sure you use it often.
  • Save Time Warp Icon Time Warp for the final boss of a floor.
  • Invisibility Icon Invisibility lets you reset a pack if you pulled too many mobs.
  • Mirror Image Icon Mirror Image will draw aggro from you, so make sure you use it on packs that have a lot of ranged/caster enemies to let them tank for you while you kill off the ranged/caster enemies.

Anima Power Playstyle Changes for Fire Mage

Below we list some Anima Power combinations that greatly change how to approach Torghast and will make it much easier if you follow these playstyle changes.

Art of the Blinkmage Icon Art of the Blinkmage + Clouded Diamond Icon Clouded Diamond: This combination of Anima Powers makes it so your Blink Icon Blink (or Shimmer Icon Shimmer) has no cooldown and places down a Mirror Image Icon Mirror Image. When you have both of these Anima Powers, you should be spamming Shimmer/Blink the entire time to spawn a crazy amount of Mirror Images. You will basically have an endless amount of Mirror Images that will draw aggro for you and damage enemies.
