Level 30 Talents for Torghast as a Subtlety Rogue

Vigor Vigor Deeper Stratagem Deeper Stratagem Marked for Death Marked for Death

Marked for Death Icon Marked for Death is slightly better than Deeper Stratagem Icon Deeper Stratagem because of how many resets you are able to get in Torghast, but it is quite a bit harder to play with which might make Deeper Stratagem a more desirable option especially if you are new to the spec.

2.4.

Level 35 Talents for Torghast as a Subtlety Rogue

Soothing Darkness Soothing Darkness Cheat Death Cheat Death Elusiveness Elusiveness

Soothing Darkness Icon Soothing Darkness is the best choice for solo content as the sustain it offers is very good due to high uptimes on Shadow Dance Icon Shadow Dance and even Stealth Icon Stealth inside Torghast.

2.5.

Level 40 Talents for Torghast as a Subtlety Rogue

Shot in the Dark ? Shot in the Dark Night Terrors ? Night Terrors Prey on the Weak Prey on the Weak

Prey on the Weak Icon Prey on the Weak is usually the best choice on this row due to the minor DPS gain from it.

Night Terrors Icon Night Terrors can also be useful if you are playing with Numbing Poison Icon Numbing Poison instead of Crippling Poison Icon Crippling Poison

Level 45 Talents for Torghast as a Subtlety Rogue

Dark Shadow Dark Shadow Alacrity Alacrity Enveloping Shadows Enveloping Shadows

Enveloping Shadows Icon Enveloping Shadows is the best choice for all PvE content.

Master of Shadows Master of Shadows Secret Technique Secret Technique Shuriken Tornado Shuriken Tornado

Pick either one of the recommended talents on this row depending on what you feel like you need.

Secret Technique Icon Secret Technique offers more AoE which will make it easier for you if you are able to pull multiple mobs at a time.

Master of Shadows Icon Master of Shadows is the better single-target choice. It will make the last boss in each layer slightly easier, which is often the hard part of a Torghast run.

5.

Anima Powers for Subtlety Rogue

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 and should not be worried about too much as big part of the fun in Torghast is testing out the different Anima Powers and figuring out different combinations. If you are interested in seeing all of the Anima Powers available to Rogue, make sure to check out the pages linked below.

If you are interested in knowing some of the more powerful Anima Powers we have access to, we have listed couple of them below:

5.1.

Phantasma

Occasionally you will be offered the ability to get Phantasma Icon Phantasma instead of an Anima Power, or increases to your Phantasma generation. It can be difficult to evaluate whether picking Phantasma is better than a power that you are not so sure about. As a rule of a thumb, any damage increase Anima Powers are often better than selecting Phantasma and utility Anima Powers worse. There are of course exceptions to this rule, as some utility ones can be strong.
