Torghast is undergoing a major overhaul with the launch of Patch 9.1. Here is a quick rundown of what to expect!
Talent Tree System
Torghast will now reward players with Tower Knowledge at the end of each run which can be spent in a new talent tree to unlock perks and advantages inside Torghast. This functions relatively similar to the talent tree for Horrific Visions in Battle for Azeroth.
You unlock the Box of Many Things in the Runecarver’s area as you progress through the initial stages of 9.1. This is the location of your talent tree.

The first thing you will notice upon starting a Torghast run is a bar that fills whenever you do certain things in Torghast, such as killing mobs, freeing souls, and destroying urns.
When the bar fills past the white line, you and your paerty receive an extra action button that you can activate to empower your group. The duration increases the more filled the bar is when activated.
Activate Empowerment – The party becomes Empowered for up to 30 sec, increasing Haste by 10%, Leech by 15%, and movement speed by 20%. While Empowered, all actions grant 100% bonus points.
There is no longer a limited amount of deaths that can occur in a Torghast run before it ends. You are given the important rewards at the end of a run just for completing it.
However, there is now a scoring system that occurs at the end of each floor and then a total score at the end of the run, granting you a crystal rating 1 through 5. The score is based on how well you performed during your run and incentivizes doing well. Unlocking new layers is tied to this score and you receive additional Tower Knowledge for higher scores.
