Adventure Guide

The Jailer's relentless beast, the Tarragrue, has stalked the halls of Torghast since its first spire was raised. Countless victims have felt their souls trampled to ash by this monstrosity, which now awaits the mortal champions breaching the threshold of the tower.

Overview

Infused Goliaths defend the outer perimeter before The Tarragrue, offering potent Anima Powers when defeated.

In battle, The Tarragrue attempts to pick off defenseless targets with Chains of Eternity while gathering power. Upon reaching 100 energy, The Tarragrue dissolves into Torghast's Hungering Mist and stalks its prey with a series of crushing assaults.

At 10% health remaining, the Jailer removes Anima Powers from all players and sends The Tarragrue into a wild frenzy.
