Best Havoc Demon Hunter Anima Powers

When exploring Torghast, on each floor you will be presented with a number of different Anima Powers when progressing. Some choices are unique benefits, while others are stacking effects and with all of the powers present your choice can be hard. Due to this we have made a basic Tier List below to give a ranking of strong powers if you need to make a quick decision. For more information about Generic and Demon Hunter Anima Powers, please refer to the two guides linked below.

Remember though, do not follow the list blindly, there is a lot of different playstyles to explore within Torghast and trying things out is part of the enjoyment. None of the powers are necessary to complete a run, and picking a power that improves something you rarely use will ultimately be useless. After all, you might not run into the power that you are looking for each run!

"S" are considered ideal picks while "F" should be avoided.

If an Anima Power is not in the Tier List above, it is either because we have been unable to test due to it being unavailable as a pick, or information about its tuning is not complete. It will be added to the list as we find out more.


Phantasma Anima Powers for Havoc Demon Hunter

Occasionally, you will be offered the ability to get Phantasma instead of an Anima Power, or increases to your Phantasma generation. Judging these is more difficult because it depends on how much of each floor you are clearing. Grabbing these early on is usually a good idea so you can make use of vendors, while the later the run goes, the less valuable these are.


Havoc Demon Hunter Playstyle for Torghast, Tower of the Damned

Havoc has a lot of tools to deal with what Torghast throws at you, but the conditions of needing to kill enemies actively to stay healthy can mean powers that give more survival are strong early picks. There are a lot of powers available that provide this however, and you do not need many to build up enough strength to tank mobs while dealing a lot back. Some quick gameplay tips when playing to remember are:

  • Pay attention to your health, and make use of Shattered Souls Icon Shattered Souls fragments when you kill enemies. Often there are low health enemies in packs, and using those fragments to sustain yourself while you kill the most dangerous can make a big difference.
  • If you run into packs that have particularly lethal enemies, remember to use Imprison Icon Imprison on the biggest threat so you can clear out the smaller enemies first.
  • Make use of your mobility and stun tools with Fel Rush Icon Fel Rush and Chaos Nova Icon Chaos Nova to lock down targets or kite if necessary.
  • Do not be afraid to use Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis frequently, especially on Elites or big packs. Often, it will be back before the floor ends and saving it might delay you even more.
  • Blur Icon Blur early and often, especially in the floors that have a heaver focus on auto based enemies. Do not wait until you are already low, that wastes the extra Dodge that keeps you healthy!
