About Torghast: What Is It and Why Is It Important?
Torghast, Tower of the Damned is a tower located at the heart of The Maw, and is the place where the Jailer hoards his most precious souls.
This new type of dungeon offers instanced dynamic content. You will encounter new challenges every time you visit it, with changing floor layouts and enemy mob types. Every time you enter Torghast, you will have a new experience. Torghast has many levels and the challenges within will grow stronger as you progress up the tower. To help overcome these challenges, you can gather resources as you go to increase your power temporarily.
Players looking to improve their characters will be spending a great deal of time here; Torghast is the source for players to obtain Soul Ash, a currency needed to create customizable Legendary Armor. Torghast is also where you will find the Runecarver, the being responsible for creating powerful weaponry such as Frostmourne and the Helm of Domination. After unlocking the Runecarver, you can interact with it to create your own Legendary gear.
Torghast is designed to be either solo or group content. It can be entered in group sizes of 1 to 5 Players and the health of enemies will scale accordingly. As you play through Torghast, you will collect Phantasma, a currency used only in Torghast. You will also gain Anima Powers, temporary abilities that increase your power within the Tower. As you ascend the Tower, progress will become more difficult due to Torments, zonewide affects that increase the challenge.
As mentioned above, Torghast is a necessary part of creating Legendary gear. Running Torghast is the only way to earn Soul Ash, which is required for both creating and upgrading Legendary gear. Unlocking Torghast also enables you to access the Runcarver's chamber which is where you will access the interface that allows you to create Legendary gear.
