2.1.

Level 15 Talents

Abyssal Strike Abyssal Strike Agonizing Flames Agonizing Flames Felblade Felblade

Abyssal Strike Icon Abyssal Strike provides too much mobility to consider other talents on this row.

2.2.

Level 25 Talents

Feast of Souls Feast of Souls Fallout Fallout Burning Alive Burning Alive

Fallout Icon Fallout provides a steady stream of souls to increase self-healing. Burning Alive Icon Burning Alive should be considered if survivability is an issue while pairing with the Legendary power Fiery Soul Icon Fiery Soul.

2.3.

Level 30 Talents

Infernal Armor Infernal Armor Charred Flesh Charred Flesh Spirit Bomb Spirit Bomb

Spirit Bomb Icon Spirit Bomb provides a large amount of AoE and single-target damage and does not have a 5-target cap like Soul Cleave Icon Soul Cleave.

2.4.

Level 35 Talents

Soul Rending Soul Rending Feed the Demon Feed the Demon Fracture Fracture

Fracture Icon Fracture provides a smoother rotation by creating GCD windows to use other abilities. Fracture is the preferred style by most Vengeance players. Feed the Demon Icon Feed the Demon provides higher up time of Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes which is superior defensively. Feed the Demon should be used when the extra survivability is needed.

2.5.

Level 40 Talents

Concentrated Sigils Concentrated Sigils Quickened Sigils Quickened Sigils Sigil of Chains Sigil of Chains

Sigil of Chains Icon Sigil of Chains provides utility to group up enemies, crowd control to kite and a psuedo-interrupt. Quickened Sigils Icon Quickened Sigils provides a lower cooldown to all sigils, including Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree if Kyrian is the selected covenant. Quickened Sigils should only be considered if you are Kyrian.

2.6.

Level 45 Talents

Void Reaver Void Reaver Demonic Demonic Soul Barrier Soul Barrier

Demonic Icon Demonic provides an on-demand Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis on a 1 minute cooldown. This is the superior option in this row.

2.7.

Level 50 Talents

Last Resort Last Resort Ruinous Bulwark Ruinous Bulwark Bulk Extraction Bulk Extraction

Last Resort Icon Last Resort is the superior choice in this row and should always be picked.

3.

Vengeance Demon Hunter Anima Powers

Anima powers are special buffs that can be found on every level of the tower. They are random on which ones you will find on every run. Due to this randomness, some runs will be easier than others. The powers will stack in strength and choosing the best anima powers is paramount to a good run. The following list will be updated overtime and should only be used as a suggestion. The power selected should take in consideration on whether you are in a group, your current anima powers selected, what weakness you are trying to fix or a multitude of other variables. Overall, the anima powers are the best part of Torghast and will change the way you play your class every time you set foot into the tower. Experiment and have fun!

For a complete list of Anima Powers available to Demon Hunter (both generic and class-specific), please refer to the pages below.

Powers are separated into "Best", "Great", "Good", "Average", and "Terrible".

3.1.

Best Anima Powers for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These picks are mandatory picks in every run. Make sure to only choose Covenant powers associated to your Covenant.

3.2.

Great Anima Powers for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These powers can be picked without much thought. Make sure to only select Covenant powers that are associated with your Covenant.

3.3.

Good Anima Powers for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These powers are a solid choice in every run of Torghast. Quite a few of them become great when combined with other powers in this list.

3.4.

Average Anima Powers for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These powers are usable but not worth a lot of value.

3.5.

Terrible Anima Powers for Vengeance Demon Hunter

These powers are either useless or even harmful if chosen.

There are missing anima powers and some are being overrated and some are being underrated. This is an evolving list that will change weekly with more testing and time in Torghast.

3.6.

Phantasma Anima Powers

Phantasma powers are generally rated low overall. If given a choice to choose a phantasma generating power early in the run, it is normally worth it due to needing phantasma early for the vendor. As the run goes on, these powers lose their value.

4.

Vengeance Demon Hunter in Torghast

Vengeance has great self sustain, which puts the spec in a good position at surviving. With Spirit Bomb Icon Spirit Bomb and Elysian Decree Icon Elysian Decree, our damage output is decent to pull bigger and survive. Grabbing powers that boost overall stats (besides Mastery assuming it is not the best pick in the options) and other anima powers that heals during movement or gliding are strong. Stacking health will boost survival while in Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis. Overall, the playstyle feels like Mythic+ and is played like Mythic+. Pull as much as you can self sustain if solo, build souls, spirit bomb, and continue.
