The Tarragrue encounter focuses heavily around the 4 Anima Powers you are offered in the surrounding trash. Some are better, some are worse, but you are not always offered everything and most of them are within margin. However, some notes:

  • Powers to look out for: Ever-Beating Heart Icon Ever-Beating Heart effectively allows you to ignore many of the most obnoxious mechanics in melee, and while not a DPS power, is a great comfort pick.
