General Information

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


Torghast as a Marksmanship Hunter

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


Best Marksmanship Hunter Talents for Torghast

Firstly, we recommend using a Ferocity pet as a Marksmanship Hunter in Torghast for the Bloodlust and the self-healing abilities it provides.

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


Best Marksmanship Hunter Torghast Anima Powers

Throughout Torghast, you will be met with a ton of different choices when it comes to Anima Powers. Choosing the right one can be difficult, so we've made a Tier List below that should help you make the decision on the fly. This Tier List assumes that the powers are the same level.

Do not follow this list blindly, though, as there is a lot of personal choice and preference involved in choosing your Anima Powers. If you never use Tar Trap Icon Tar Trap in your playstyle, it would be silly to pick an Anima Power that increases its radius, for example.

As usual, "S" is best and "F" is worst.

If you want a complete list of Anima Powers, please refer to the pages linked below.


S-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


A-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


B-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


C-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


D-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


E-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter


F-Tier Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter

If an Anima Power is not in the Tier List above, it is either because we have been unable to test it or find information about its tuning. It will be populated over time as we learn more about them.


Phantasma Anima Powers for Marksmanship Hunter

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 "C"-tier or higher alternative Anima Power.


Marksmanship Hunter Playstyle for Torghast, Tower of the Damned

Inherently, Marksmanship is pretty weak for Torghast, but it can absolutely be viable and to help you achieve this, we have some tips below.

  • Use Misdirection Icon Misdirection on your pet constantly. Macro it in with your Barrage Icon Barrage if you are using this talent to instantly gather a bunch of mobs around your pet.
  • Use Line of Sight to your advantage. There are a lot of caster mobs in Torghast, and the Misdirection-Barrage strategy will not work if your pet is out in the open. If you want to be really efficient, manually place your pet around a corner outside the room before you do your Misdirection into Barrage and watch all the casters gather up for you.
  • Use Binding Shot Icon Binding Shot and Tar Trap Icon Tar Trap aggressively. Your spec is only good at stacked AoE, so use your pet as a stacking point for mobs and use these crowd control abilities to keep them there. Plus, there are Anima Powers that vastly amplify these abilities, so it is good to get into the habit of using them.
  • Remember that Exhilaration Icon Exhilaration heals your pet for 100% of its health! You will use it more to heal your pet than yourself.
  • Keybind and use Mend Pet Icon Mend Pet often. Your pet is going to be squishy as Marksmanship, so you want to help it wherever you can.
  • Most importantly, take it slow. There is no timer in Torghast, the only thing limiting your advancement is dying, so do not die! Use Freezing Trap Icon Freezing Trap to get rid of high-health mobs temporarily, just be careful not to break your CC with Barrage Icon Barrage immediately after.
