At the heart of the Maw lies Torghast, Tower of the Damned, a cursed otherworldly prison where the evil souls in the universe are locked away. Highly re-playable and has been inspired by rogue like games. Heroes are invited to explore its ever-changing halls and chambers and indulge in battle with the minions of the Jailer, Torghast’s vile ruler. Those who dare to brave its trials can claim legendary treasures and help to free the heroic spirits which are wrongfully trapped within.
The Torghast experience is in a true alpha state. It is not yet feature complete and many design decisions are still being made. Due to our desire to get pointed feedback on class-specific Anima Powers, we are testing a few classes at this time. When it becomes available to play on the alpha, the following classes will be available for testing purposes: Demon Hunter, Mage, Priest, and Warlock. We will keep you updated on when other new classes are introduced.
Torghast is an otherworldly place, with an ever-shifting interior. There are many areas to explore, and at this time players will be able to explore Skoldus Halls and Fracture Chambers.
Warden Skoldus looks over this wing of Torghast. He is a cruel warden who uses rats, dogs, and other beasts to torment others.
Prisoners from Maldraxxus are usually held here, with their bones broken over and over again. With the player’s help, they can escape their cells and assault their captors.
With every floor, and enemies becoming stronger you’ll also become more powerful by using temporary skills called Anima Powers. Levels tend to get more complex the higher you climb—the first few floors will have a simple layout, but higher up you’ll be dealing with traps, puzzles, and locked doors that will require you to have keys generally held by ruthless enemies.
These dynamic wings change their layout each time you step inside , and they can also be influenced by the Jailer’s command—changing the types of enemies you encounter and the Anima Powers available for you to choose between.
Every time you enter the tower you will need to explore it; don’t rely on memories of past ventures lest you get lulled into trap or ambushed by a horde of enemies!
