    I can tell time, but you think "couple" is just 2 or 3. Not my problem then.
    If you seriously do mythics + people you invite are serious with it, too, you do not wait 10 minutes at the stone, just sayin.
    Not my fault you can't make good groups/are not able to use your time in a way that you do not wait around. /shrug

    My condolences to your English and maths teachers then. Where a couple means 10+. You do you.

    A couple (= some OR two - words can have different meanings, you know? A good teacher would have told you this) can be viewed different. For me those hours that he needed to put into it are nothing - leveling alts is a normal thing that one does whenever one wants.
    As I said, the leveling process is a non-issue, idk why you getting so hard about this. 4 hours of gearing via dungeons is nothing and therefor it's just a couple.
    Does not make sense to discuss this with you, sadly. cheerio

    Many responses in this thread reaffirm my choice to not provide guidance to unknown players. Good god the negativity.

The Tower did not need the nerfs it got; nerfs it recieved due to a majority of players providing feedback regarding the tower complaining that it was too hard, not that it was too slow / boring. I am in NO way trying to say that no one said the tower wasn't slow / boring as those were complaints in the mix as well, but they were nowhere near as many as the general complaints about the tower being difficult. And I honestly do not doubt that a great amount of those difficulty complaints is mostly grounded in; yes - The amount of time the tower tok, but this is where my explanation on how the tower should have been nerfed comes into play. If people's complaints was in majority of "The slow pace" opposed to "This is too hard" - Then we would likely have seen a better "Nerf" along the lines of what I said as that would make the tower "faster" for a majority of players as they simply would not need to do the highest layers while still getting a larger brunt of the Soul Ash. It's no wonder that there always is complaints with balance patches when Blizzard keeps misunderstanding feedback / the players gives the wrong type of feedback. And my thread here is grounded in the fact that people did and still are complaining that the tower is hard to complete, not that it is slow.

    Different approaches, same destination.
    All I will say to this is just see my reply above as the point still stands. People saying that non-challenging content is too hard just because it takes time leads to the wrong type of adjustments, had they simply changed the Soul Ash values; I think we would have had the most positive reception as players who enjoy what challenges the tower gave would keep that aspect while people who complain could not do just the first 4-6 layers and get all the Soul Ash they needed while not feeling the imaginary pressure of "having" to do the upper floors due to the low amount of Soul Ash it would grant. This would again maybe be a prickle for those few that; does not like Torghast but who still has the gear and skill to easily sweep the place out; but that bracket of people is in way less a majority when compared to the people that just cried out that the tower was too hard. Unfortunately not everyone can be happy; I know. But the changes done to the tower could have been handled way better.

    With that much effort I am sure you can find people who find LFR hard as well.
    This comment just proves how out of touch you are with the community side of WoW and I would please ask you to refrain from making claims based on your narrow observations going forward. The fact that you have the audacity to try and sound smart here by claiming that you have yet to meet anyone who says the tower is hard means that you have rather spoken with no one or have an extreme case of selective hearing and / or selective reading. Just smashing "Torghast difficulty" in on Google will showcase many a threads from the EU and US forums as well with Reddit threads and entries from other WoW community pages where the difficulty of the tower is repeated time and time again. On the other hand, if you search something like "Torghast slow" or "Torghast time" (Or anything to make time the relevant factor) you will still find that there is a larger number of voices in relevant threads to the slow pace of the tower that complains about the difficulty. That you at all can manage to delude yourself into thinking that the slow pace of the tower ever was more outspoken of a problem as opposed to the challenge really shows how little attention you pay to what's going on.

    Having 4 chars maxed and geared beyond 170 with multiple mythic dungeons is not what the game is designed around. At least that is my take on this. Sounds to me that your endgame should be mythic raids and mythic keystones and well..yes, eventually you will get your climb to the top of Twisting corridors and the mount and as it is...don't worry...very very few ppl will be able to get that mount at all.

    At ilv 160 on a Prot Paladin, I found the recent run in Torghast enjoyable. Only 1 death due to stupidity (feared off the edges) - but I can also see that very soon I will not be able to climb further

    Many people are just not used to dealing with challenging single player content.

    The only cases where we had 'major' difficult single player content was the leveling in classic, mage tower (completely optional) and visions.

    But yeah, some people are just shit at torghast, incl. many "high end" players that raid mythic, do high keys etc.

    Actually there is no thread.. it's just "wow I did it just fine so it isn't hard guys!".. what else is that than e-peen stroking?

    Thanks for pretty much confirming my claims about your intentions and mindset. If you consider a constructive thread which is ment to serve as feedback / a post where I reflect upon a topic which many in the community has been vocal about for the past coupled of weeks to be "e-peen stroking" then I simply feel sorry for you, as clearly you are one of the members of this games community who does nothing to help it and any feedback from you would serve only to hurt the game more than help it.

    I am not sure if your mindset just comes from that of; Attempted Trolling - You feeling "hit" in some way as perhaps you can't clear the top levels of Torghast - Maybe you just always have viewed constructive feedback as "BS" since you yourself can't muster up anything resembling constructive feedback yourself so you simply take to hate that which you do not understand. Regardless of what it is; I just want to once again thank you for coming out and ousting yourself as someone who contributes nothing to the thread at hand. Have a nice day.

    I feel like Torghast needs three modes: Current layer 1 fast and all ash for the week so it can be done very quickly if you have multiple alts, I can be a chore over multiple alts due to the time on an expansion that was marketed as alt friendly, this puts the compulsory chore at the front and makes it fast, so the rest can actually be a challenge. Layers 2-8 Should be as challenging as they once were but have gear behind them like visions used to, it feels bad to wipe due to a bad fear once interrupts are down for example for something like ash, gear would be different. Make it a solo to five person challenge that has progression and not be a chore. Then the Twisted Corridors for the cosmetics for a real challenge that has no player power.

    After the nerfs a few weeks back - and the other class tuning in Torghast. . . I haven't had any issue across my main and 4 alts.

    Arcane Mage: Was ok pre-nerf and feels pretty easy now.
    Sub Rogue: I did find it a pain pre-nerf and the class changes for Torghast made it much easier(less anima power stacking needed for ramp up)
    Frost DK: Pretty easy prenerf - easier now after
    WW Monk: This felt the most "balanced" pre-nerf
    Shadow Priest(Main): No issues pre-nerf


    My biggest complaint pre-nerf for some classes was simple tuning of Anima ramp up.
    Rogue was an easy offender, such as the anima that applied Rupture worth 1 combo point per rank - when using Eviscerate.
    It was then retuned to give 5 point Ruptures.
    Similar happened with the Shadowstrike/Backstab damage booster - it went from 5 ranks to 3, with bigger bonuses per rank.

    Ignoring that Torghast is just a failed design concept in general, based on my runs with my various classes, I think the majority of the issues come from Torghast being designed to be played a very specific way with each spec.

    For example, Blizzard has had absolutely no creative thought process with paladins in 15 years, and this shows in how they designed Torghast buffs for Ret: pretty much just straight damage buffs. So for paladins, playing Torghast isn't much different than playing the game anywhere else in the world. If you know how to beat stuff up and survive stuff beating you up outside the tower, your experience will be pretty much the same inside the tower.

    But when you move over to Hunters, things look very different. A lot of buffs focus entirely on using specific skills in specific ways, often without directly buffing damage at all. When you look at priests, there's a really weird number of anima powers that buff screams and what not. For some classes, Torghast forces you to play in a way that you might not enjoy or even have any experience with at all - but for others, like ret, Torghast is just same shit different day.

    I find that altoholics have a lot more tolerance for changing their playstyles than those of us who are committed to one or a few specific characters, for better or worse. Personally, I get miffed by that design philosophy, because it's what leads to the argument "X class is fine because, if played perfectly, it is able to accomplish this thing that class Y does just rolling its face across the keyboard."

    I guess this is true. There's the Fade build (which I've only gotten the correct powers to work for me once since week after launch), the Fear (super resistant to the non-existent damage of holy priest lol) build that you can get to last forever - which is definitely not how you play the rest of the game (not sure I see anyone ever fear bomb every mob... and haven't not even in vanilla).

    Or my favorite - the 20% damage into SWP initial tick. That's a fun one. You get to sit there at the end of the floor with 1 mob building it back up to 100% HP and then 1 shot the boss xD... I think one run I had 64k HP? +70% damage to a Feared/Stunned Mob, Guaranteed Crit on SWP initial dot... instakill boss. Definitely my favorite powers to see. Much different than lower layers though where the Rare mobs were guaranteed to give the stacking damage resistance so you just couldn't die...

    Sorry but anyone who says Mage is hard in torghast is just a terrible mage.

  14. #114
    Sub rogue here, no issue, especially since the nerf.
    Total faceroll if you bought all anima boost to venari.
    Was a bit tricky before nerf, >layer 6

    Sorry but you kind of missed the point. You were way better geared than a lot of people that were trying to get layer 8 done, i cleared layer 8 pre nerf on my druid easy, but i think the gear, animas you get (& choose) and most importantly of all what the end boss is.

    I had not lost a life on my hunter and when i got to the last boss on layer 8 i died multiple times. It was the ooze boss that splits into 3, even kiting around, feigning death etc made no difference. Unless you could nuke them fast at the split stage it was always a fail, nothing to do with skill it was a gear check.

    There were some other bosses too that were a major pain, i really think you are being a bit disingenuous to make it look like it was easy, no matter the reasons, with that ilvl i would expect anyone to manage unless they hit a brick wall boss.

    Thats what i think anyway.

    Well - it is hard for squishies, that's just fact.

    Is it unfair... well, no more unfair than squishies not being able to tank raid bosses.

    Pair up with a tank and impossible becomes trivial.

    Of course not, if you pair up with a tank - it has always been easy.

    It is only pretty much impossible when you are solo, that's just straight maths.

    If you don't like objective reality and maths... then I can't help you.
