yup so enjoy spending even more hours per alt to unlock each layer because for some reason Layer unlocks are not account wide, but the expansion is alt friendly guys.I am assuming this was just an oversight and not intentional but damn can I not be bothered to play the alt iv leveled because I don't want to do 6 layers or 60 floors of Torghast in one week, plus the final layer on the other wing, plus my main. So that is what 75 floors if I wanted to keep my main current and catch my alt up this week. This is not accounting floor 3 because it is a rest floor. This is just about as bad as the cape Wrathion gave us.
If you are having problems as shadow in Torghast, I would really recommend learning just enough discipline to go in there. As a solo healer, the health pools are a lot less, and although everything takes a little longer to die, I never felt in danger of dying, at least at layer 6. And if you get lucky with some damage buffs, it won't be that much longer than shadow anyway. And your shadow gear is pretty good in general for discipline also.Edit to add: I see they just buffed the enemy health pools for solo healers in Torghast, so we'll have to see if this holds true this week or not.
Torghast has been the most boring and time consuming experience that I've been forced in this game, if it wasn't obligatory then I think it would be ok like the mage tower that wasn't detrimental to progress in the game and just was for cosmetic reasons. The fact that from now on we will have to repeat it multiple times a week to craft legendaries including alts is just pure torture. The Maw is a horribly boring grinding experience and if they don't fix Torghast soon and move the soul ash to a single run or to other game feature I think I won't be resubbing for the rest of the expansion. Hell even Island expeditions were better getting them done in maybe 5 minutes and never giving a crap about them for the rest of the week.
Torghast is the most boring, long and awful experience I've had in WoW. I enjoy no part of it. It's 5 LONG floors of easy farming followed by a boss that you can only beat if RNG is on your side for your powers. If this is what they are forcing for the entire expansion, I'll find something else to do.
