    Some classes are strictly more OP than others in torghast.
    300k damage death strike blood DKs for example.

    Or perma immolation DHs that just jump from start to end.

    But this is likely a troll thread since you were too much of a coward to post on your real account.
    Depending on your spec and RNG luck it can take that long. I didn't get a good anima (bis) until floor 14.
    Shit was tedious AF, not hard just boring and slow.

    Hardy option if a campaign quest takes you through it.

    Personally it took me an hour+ as a BM Hunter. It was just tedious as balls.

    It is painful when you take an hour to get to a last boss that is completely overtuned and one-shots you, when everything else in the tower has been a cakewalk.

    No, it's not fine in any way.

    I personally think a mount for the maw would be better served to be bought from exalted from the broker. It requires a grind in the maw but nothing you couldn't do as you quested weekly and leave the Twisting Corridors to be cosmetics. It's not fun in anyway to grind 18 floors in one sitting. Doing it 8 times? Fuck no.

    You know it may be optional but time taken does not equal challenge, just because something takes an hour or more without any change doesn't make it hard it makes it tedious - I made one mistake with the power I picked on the 17 floor and then couldn't complete it due to my own incompetence.

    Mage Tower and Visions were better than this in terms of how they played and difficulty.. this just feels RNG.

    My issue is one minute your killing mobs let right and center then all of a sudden it take forever to kill trash.. still do it just long and boring.

    I think I am just pissed I spent an hour in there to fail before the boss, honestly you are more likely to die to the trash floors than the bosses.

    I don't mind if they don't change it but its not a challenge just long and tedious. (probably more salty at the moment)

    Cleared layer 6 failed 3 layers now. Failed one layer 6 and 7 run because I didn't get enough HP powers, 40-50k health ain't cutting it with ranged bosses. Failed one layer 7 at the last boss because I didn't get the Convoke spirits dmg buff and the buff that gives priority to more powerful spells. I play moonkin and convoke is basically half the dps you do. All of those runs I got over 90 anima powers, really doesn't make any sense that there are some anima powers that literally never appear.

    I reset the run if I don't get any of my "mandatory" anima powers on the 1st floor.
    I'd rather spend half an hour to ensure that I can kill the end boss instead of getting reamed on the 18th floor.

    Funny thing is I had similar run on layer 6 (with dps powers) where I ended up getting 2 convoke spirits dmg buffs in the last two floors, one from the vendor and one from the floor. But yeah it kinda sucks the life out of you after you spend 2 hours clearing layer because of suboptimal dps powers and then you just end up short in the last boss.

    The ramp-up from Floor 16 to 17 and especially bosses at 17 and 18 is quite steep. Took me 2.5hours on average as well on a Disc priest clearing every corner

    You need to do it to get the 3 Lion Clues for the campaign quest.

    you can do the first 6 floors 3 times if you want. That way it becomes just like any other torghast quest.

    It depends on the genre. FPS are ALL about gameplay.

    RPGs are a different story. I’m not saying that ppl have to care the story above all, but indeed the story is a huge part of this type of games.

    But this said, my main issue with TG and TC is that you can’t save the progress, it’s a “one shot or start from the beginning again” and I won’t EVER have 2 to 3 hours straight to complete a layer.

    I didn't notice any increase in difficulty or startling length increase from 16-18. It took me no longer to do 15 than it did 17. But I was playing drunk...

    Finished it all in like 60-70 minutes.

    Yeah it needs check points at the broker rest levels. It would be pretty easy to balance it. Reach a broker level, you get saved to it. If you want to continue you can't save again until you reach the next check point, leave it mid way through and you lose it and your remaining attempts should be continuous. No resetting them either.

    It goes faster and is easier as group. Try that. If you get good powers early you dont have to get like 90 powers at floor 18 and 120 souls. And can rush through. Synergy is key, i got a very good build with 40 powers and ended up doing well over 100k dps on last boss as ret pally.

    It ramps up quite a bit from layer 5+ I know the feeling getting a few beers in really makes it fly by faster ^_^

    What is it with people in these threads always flexing how fast they clear this?

    I did solo all 8 layers.

    I must say, layer difficulty is sort of only felt like first 6 floors. After that you start snowballing hard to the point where layer number itself feels like whatever.

    I had legit troubles with layer 7 because for some reason the bloody thing just decided to not drop HP powers almost at all until like floor 14 or some such. Doing higher floors with 50k HP and some 90k HP pet is not amazing.

    So people have a frame of reference. Don't get too jealous, now.
