Now, so that you can make sure you are equipped with only the best, here’s a tier list featuring all the items in Halls of Torment.

Halls of Torment Item Tier List

S-Tier Halls of Torment Items

As you might expect, all items featured as part of the S-tier section are the game’s overall best, as each of them is capable of truly being game-chaining no matter your character or map of choice. A feat that they can achieve thanks to their ability to increase your overall damage under set conditions, provide your character with exclusive abilities, massively increase either your or your summon’s stats, or allow you to revive, among much more.

As a piece of advice, remember, as the Revive items don’t offer boosts to your character, we advise you to swap them in when you notice you are going to die or when in do-or-die situations.
