World of Warcraft Shadowlands Anima Powers Guide

Anima Powers are new specific perks designed specifically for Torghast, Tower of the Damned. There are a lot of Anima Powers that you can get. They depend on your covenant and class. But also there are general Anima Powers the list of which you’ll see in the bottom of this guide.

What is Anima Powers?

Anima Powers are special temporary abilities or perks that you will get during your run in Torghast. There are several types of game modes that you can play in Torghast and you can read about them in our Torghast guide here. There are three types of Anima Powers: class-specific, Covenant-specific and non-specific. The list of Anima Powers for every class will appear after we all of them on the site. But every day you’ll see a new post with one class-specific list of Anima powers.

How to get Anima Powers?

You can get them only in Torghast during the run. There you’ll see Anima Orbs, pick them up to obtain Anima power that will last during all your run in the most cases. Note that Anima Orbs spawn randomly and will give you some options to choose between a selection of powerful traits. You are luckily to find Anima Orbs if you:

  • explore each floor
  • defeat the Empowered Mobs with increased damage and health at the end of some floors
  • defeat a rare creature
  • defeat random enemies
  • destroy large potteries
  • complete side objectives such as opening special chests or helping covenant prisoners
  • buy Plundered Anima Cell from Broker Ve’kens.

Interact with an orb to see three random Anima Powers to choose from. They vary from white to purple by rarity and strength. Moreover, most of them can stack, especially those that increase some properties such as damage, critical chance, Phantasma generation etc. So if you see the same Anima Power as you already got next time remember that you ca stack them to get more bonuses.
