Adventure Guide

Of all the foul creatures that serve the Legion, the hooded inquisitors are perhaps the most mysterious, and most menacing. Tormentorum arrived in the aftermath of the initial assault upon the vault. As he drifts through the halls of the Vault, his gaze piercing the shadows in search of some vital secret, even other demons give him a wide berth.


Inquisitor Tormentorum siphons the energy of players and opens prisons at random. These prisons release additional enemies that players must deal with or risk getting overwhelmed.
