Shadowlands brings unique Tower of the Damned dungeon you can do solo or with friends

In WoW‘s new expansion Shadowlands, there’s a new dungeon which will operate unlike anything we’ve seen before. Torghast is the jail at the center of the Maw, which is where all the worst of the worst souls go to be enslaved forever, so you know this is going to be a challenge.

Every time you go into the into the dungeon it will change, so one experience won’t be like the other. It’s being called an “endless dungeon” because of this ability to change.

The Tower is a maximum level dungeon, so don’t try to gather your friends until you hit level 60 — or not. While you can bring four friends, you can go in with fewer, or solo. The experience will scale depending on the size of your party — more mobs, more beefy mobs, or mobs that’ll hit harder.

Your objective is to climb the tower as high as you can, hopefully to meet the final boss, The Jailor. Along the way, the things you pick up will give you transformative powers. You’ll be able to decide what kind of power you wish to wield from the items you pick up and discover. The new power — anima — will be found on the items within the Tower. As you go higher, the bosses, trash, and other dangers will get stronger. At some point, you won’t be able to go any further and you’ll have to come back when you’re stronger.

If you’re familiar with the roguelike game type, it sounds similar. You’ll enter, do your best, and see how far you can get this time. It remains to be seen whether you’ll get to keep anything from your journey, or whether it’ll be a true roguelike where the only reward is glory.

The Tower will be available to players when Shadowlands goes live.
