Torghast, Tower of the Damned
One of the most exciting features coming to World of Warcraft in Shadowlands is a brand new roguelike dungeon, Torghast, Tower of the Damned.
Torghast will be a roguelike experience that players can take on solo or in groups, with scaling difficulty as players push further up through its many layers.
This dungeon will be key to PVE progression, as it offers players Soul Ash which is used to craft Legendary armor. You can expect it to be an important part of the expansion where player spend plenty of time.
Torghast features randomly spawned Anima Orbs that offer players a choice between different Anima Powers which empower abilities. Instead of time limits, Torghast simply limits groups to a certain amount of deaths.
Once you reach this death cap, your run won't end instantly. Instead, the Tarragrue will spawn, a hulking giant that will slowly walk through the floor your group is on. If the Tarragrue reaches your party before you reach the next floor, it's over.
Shadowlands will be a revival for World of Warcraft PVP.
Shadowlands brings back PVP vendors, Conquest Points, Honor Points, gear upgrades, and more.
