Best Restoration Druid Anima Powers

Torghast is a rogue-like dungeon crawl where you gain additional powers to help you tackle the challenges inside the tower. Here we will go over some of the Anima Powers to keep a look out for.

Not all powers will be listed, just those that have been tested or those that seem like they would synergize well with the class. Those not listed have either little information surrounding them or are too poor to use. If you are interesting in a full list, please refer to the buttons below.

Keep in mind that this is a very loose and subjective tier-list of items and that different playstyles will prefer different powers and some powers activate others.

Elethium Powers

Elethium Powers are strong buffs that come with drawbacks that can range from healing losses to loss of some character control. The ones with the healing reduction passives only reduce your healing if they specifically state "Nature healing", all of the rest will not reduce your healing at all and are thus safe to pick. Make sure you do not pick damage reductions on Nature and Physical schools, because those are important to your clear speeds.

Restoration Druid Playstyle for Torghast, Tower of the Damned

Restoration Druid is a decent spec to do Torghast as. All enemies will have less Health to compensate for you being a healer. Below we will list a few tips that might help you decide on which powers to pick and which to skip.

  • As a Restoration Druid, you are not overly concerned with survivability, but you might lack damage to beat certain elites. One of the best tactics is to take it slow early and kill every enemy you can find to maximize your Anima Powers for later levels. It might not seem necessary, but it will help you later.
  • Overall, almost every power in Torghast will increase your damage in one way or another. Do not be afraid to pick some defensive powers here and there.
  • If you have bad gear or decide to take it very safe, you can wait for Convoke the Spirits Icon Convoke the Spirits cooldown before pulling anything that looks dangerous. Pick powers for Convoke whenever possible and try to separate enemies from each other using Entangling Roots Icon Entangling Roots.
  • Do not pick too many Curious Bramblepatch Icon Curious Bramblepatch Anima powers. While it is nice to kill enemies without them touching you, this does not work on last boss of the layer. One or two are fine to kill particularly annoying enemies in big packs, but more of those will slow you down by a lot.
