Fracture provides a smoother rotation by creating GCD windows to use other abilities. Fracture is the preferred style by most Vengeance players.

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

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

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.
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.
Vengeance Demon Hunter in Torghast
Vengeance has great self sustain, which puts the spec in a good position at surviving. With Spirit Bomb and 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. 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.
