General Information

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


Holy Paladin Torghast Guide

While this guide focuses on Torghast, Tower of the Damned, its lessons can be applied to any solo content, including world questing and leveling.

Inside Torghast, enemy health is reduced when playing healer and tank specializations. Holy Paladin has always had exceptional damage output for a healer spec, making it a very strong choice for Torghast.

Holy Paladin has strong damage, utility, and self-sustain making it a very strong Torghast spec. With Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath, we have very high burst damage allowing us to deal with any of the bosses or high health enemies we might encounter in Torghast. Similar to other healers, we have the clear weakness of doing low AoE damage compared to some of the other Paladin specs. In Torghast, you have no time no time limit so it can be smart to pull small to play to the strengths of Holy Paladin which is single target damage.


Best Torghast Talents for Holy Paladin

The talents recommended below apply to Torghast / general soloing. If you are looking for a general overview of Holy talents, check our main page below:

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


The basis for Torghast talent are about maximizing damage while minimizing the amount of abilities you need to cast. If you are looking for more AoE you could spec into Light's Hammer Icon Light's Hammer, but you would lose single target damage from not having Crusader's Might Icon Crusader's Might. There are other talents you can swap between such as Holy Avenger Icon Holy Avenger and Divine Purpose Icon Divine Purpose. One provides more consistent damage while the other large burst damage.


Best Torghast Covenant / Soulbind / Conduits for Holy Paladin

Below we will cover the best Covenant/Soulbind/Conduits available for Torghast. You will never want to swap your covenant just for your weekly Torghast runs, but we will cover the best Soulbinds for each. If you are interested in more detailed covenant information as well as soulbinds and conduits. Please check out our dedicated covenant page linked below.

Your options vary between Covenants:

Covenant Soulbind Recommended Tree
Necrolord Emeni Emeni Tree
Venthyr Nadjia the Mistblade Nadjia Tree
Kyrian Forgelite Prime Mikanikos Mikanikos Tree
Night Fae Korayn Korayn Tree

When it comes to our Soulbind trees, we prioritize damage as much as we possibly can. In most cases, there will be very little healing to do in Torghast which lessens the need for Soulbinds that are built around maximizing healing output.


Best Torghast Legendaries for Holy Paladin

  1. Stable Phantasma Lure Icon Stable Phantasma Lure
  2. Relentless Inquisitor Icon Relentless Inquisitor
  3. Vanguard's Momentum Icon Vanguard's Momentum
  4. The Mad Paragon Icon The Mad Paragon
  5. The Magistrate's Judgment Icon The Magistrate's Judgment

Stable Phantasma Lure Icon Stable Phantasma Lure is a Torghast-only legendary that will increase how much Phantasma Icon Phantasma you gain. Using it will allow you to purchase better and more frequent Anima Powers during your run.

Relentless Inquisitor Icon Relentless Inquisitor provides a strong Haste bonus that you will be able to maintain 100% uptime on as long as you are keeping yourself in combat. In the case you drop combat, it does not take long to max out the stacks again.

Vanguard's Momentum Icon Vanguard's Momentum gives you an extra Hammer of Wrath Icon Hammer of Wrath charge, which can have strong synergy with some of the different Anima Powers available to Paladins in Torghast.

The Mad Paragon Icon The Mad Paragon increases your damage of Hammer of Wrath Icon Hammer of Wrath, while it is not exceptional, it still is one of the stronger options available as most of our Legendary Powers revolve around healing.

The Magistrate's Judgment Icon The Magistrate's Judgment is a strong legendary as it will allow you to use your Holy Power spending abilities more frequently. We do not have a lot of AoE damage outside of Shield of the Righteous Icon Shield of the Righteous, so being able to use it more will just help with that problem.

Holy Paladin Playstyle for Torghast

Holy Paladin can scale very well as you start gaining more and more powers. The class will start off slow and will struggle in AoE situations, but it has some of the highest potential single-target DPS of any of the healer specs. You will want to play around your Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath cooldown and pull difficult enemies when you have the cooldown available.

  • When facing caster enemies, Line of Sighting can be useful to help reduce some of the damage taken and positioning them how you would like.
  • Use Blinding Light Icon Blinding Light and Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice to stun/interrupt enemy casts. As Holy Paladin doe not have an interrupt, making use of these cooldowns is incredibly important.
  • Use the perks you pick up on the way as they are incredibly valuable.
