Holy Shield Icon Holy Shield or Blessed Hammer Icon Blessed Hammer are both good options for Torghast. Holy Shield Icon Holy Shield will provide more versatile damage reduction, however Blessed Hammer Icon Blessed Hammer will let you generate Holy Power between packs of enemies.

2.2.

Level 25 Talents

First Avenger First Avenger Crusader's Judgment ? Crusader's Judgment Moment of Glory Moment of Glory

As most of your time in Torghast is spent fighting against multiple enemies at the same time, First Avenger Icon First Avenger is your highest DPS option.

Level 30 Talents

Fist of Justice ? Fist of Justice Repentance ? Repentance Blinding Light ? Blinding Light

This row is entirely down to personal preference.

2.4.

Level 35 Talents

There are 2 viable options here, once again down to personal preference.

2.5.

Level 40 Talents

Divine Purpose Divine Purpose Holy Avenger ? Holy Avenger Seraphim Seraphim

Divine Purpose Icon Divine Purpose would be the most consistent DPS throughout your run. If your run is more planned then Holy Avenger Icon Holy Avenger can provide you with more burst DPS for controlled large pulls.

2.6.

Level 45 Talents

Hand of the Protector Hand of the Protector Consecrated Ground Consecrated Ground Judgment of Light Judgment of Light

Consecrated Ground Icon Consecrated Ground gives you access to a slowing tool to allow you to kite more effectively (should you require it).

If you are playing in a group then Judgment of Light Icon Judgment of Light is a more group-centric option.

2.7.

Level 50 Talents

Sanctified Wrath Sanctified Wrath Righteous Protector Righteous Protector Final Stand Final Stand

Sanctified Wrath Icon Sanctified Wrath is a great all round choice in Torghast as it provides you with a more consistent flow of Holy Power during Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath.

Righteous Protector Icon Righteous Protector is a higher DPS option as you will have access to Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath more often.

Best Protection Paladin Anima Powers

Throughout Torghast, you will acquire Anima Powers. These will be multiple choice windows and each of these will increase your power in Torghast in some capacity. Some choices however will be better than others for your current situation within Torghast. Below is a ranked tier list to help you get the most out of your Anima Powers. This Tier List assumes that the powers are the same level.

It should be noted that a lot of these choices can come down to personal playstyle and preference and you should choose what is best for you personally.

Torghast is meant to be flexible and fun, this is just a rough guideline so do not feel like you NEED to use these recommendations or you won't be able to complete your run, try things out and see how they go for you for the best results. For a complete list of Anima Powers for Paladin, please use the buttons below.

3.1.

3.3.

Average Anima Powers for Protection Paladin

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.

3.4.

Phantasma Anima Powers for Protection Paladin

Occasionally you will be offered the ability to get Phantasma Icon Phantasma instead of an Anima Power, or increases to your Phantasma generation. It is hard to evaluate the Anima Powers you can purchase with Phantasma, but they are generally better than the "Average" Anima powers.

4.

Protection Paladin Playstyle for Torghast

Protection Paladin is quite strong for Torghast, in either group or solo content you will comfortably be able to progress through the tower with very few limiting factors. Your playstyle will not differ much from normal Mythic+/Raid in Torghast.

  • Use Line of Sight to your advantage. This can be incredibly handy if there are multiple caster mobs that you wish to stack up and cleave together.
  • Use Avenger's Shield Icon Avenger's Shield, Rebuke Icon Rebuke, Blinding Light Icon Blinding Light, and Hammer of Justice Icon Hammer of Justice to actively to interrupt/disrupt dangerous monsters.
  • Use the perks you pick up on the way as they are incredibly valuable.
