Valorant pros Wardell & Scream frustrated by new Agent Skye’s flashes

Every new Agent in Valorant is going to take some getting used to, but professional players like Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom and Matthew ‘Wardell’ Yu have seen first-hand how oppressive Skye’s flashes can be in Act 3.

The 13th Agent in Riot Games’ tactical shooter has been garnering amusing reactions from people who love Skye’s in-game potential but, at the same time, are getting taken by surprise by her potent blind ability, Guiding Light.

Riot set up Skye with a ton of utility that can directly lead to a kill or assist. Even her heal, called Regrowth, for example, can top off multiple players who just won their 1v1 duels – letting her set up teammates for the next one too.

Competitive players or creative theory crafters are bound to figure out how to best utilize her in different comps and on an individual level. In the meantime, there are incredible highlights of people already fed up with the new Agent’s hawk trinket.

A lot of Valorant esport fans should be familiar with Wardell’s eccentric pop-offs by now. Whether it’s an OP Academy highlight or 1vX clutch, the man is asserting his in-game dominance with a roar.

Unfortunately, Skye hits different. Wardell was pushing up on Ascent’s B main when he was hit with the gamut of blinds that the enemy team could offer.

Make no mistake, the TSM player got chained-CC’d by more than a few abilities, but Skye’s Guiding Lights were nearly impossible to avoid – and that’s not even counting the Trailblazer that Wardell took to the chest after it was all over.

ScreaM on the other hand, had a more tamed approach to his reaction. The Belgian star wasn’t impressed with Skye’s ability to consecutively blind opponents, seeing as he was facing a flashed screen for about a full eight seconds.

After the third blind, ScreaM just about looked like he was tired of the new Agent’s shenanigans, even though she’s only just came out.

There’s a really short window between recognizing that her Guiding Light is coming to actually looking away; unless Riot nerfs it so that it has the slightest of delays before popping, Valorant players will just have to readjust to the new flashes.

Blizzard’s newest expansion for World of Warcraft, Shadowlands, has been an instant hit. There’s one area of the game that has fans going wild though; Torghast, the Tower of the Damned. We’re going to help you unlock it. 

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has breathed new life into the iconic franchise. With an epic trailer featuring Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner against Azeroth, it’s safe to say that the expansion has been hyped from the beginning.

Pre-sales for Shadowlands were rated as the highest of any other expansion in the title’s history and the release has seen fans old and new come together to explore WoW’s spooky new realm.

One of the newest and coolest aspects of the expansion though is the new rogue-like dungeon; Torghast, the Tower of the Damned.

Torghast is a rogue-like experience of no other in WoW’s history.

Why Torghast Tower is special

Torghast is of particular interest to WoW: Shadowlands players because it is an infinite dungeon that changes every time a player attempts a new run.

As players progress through the dungeon they’ll come across stronger enemies, as well as picking up stat boosts and even different abilities, a currency greater than gold in the WoW universe.

Be careful, though! As you level up, your enemies do too, so you best be prepared to enter this tower of terror. Otherwise, you might just be losing the very items you covet.

How to unlock the Torghast Tower dungeon

What’s the point of all this cool stuff if you don’t know how to unlock it though? Well, here’s a detailed list of how to do so. Bear in mind that you must be level 60 and have reached the expansion’s end. Not quite at 60 yet? Here’s a levelling guide to help you out. 

Here are the steps to unlock Torghast:

  • Choose a Covenant to pledge yourself to.
  • You will receive a quest that takes you back to The Maw, completing this gives you access to Torghast.
  • The Tower’s entrance is found in the Western Zone of the Ve’nari Refuge area of The Maw.
  • Take the portal to the Tower.

Torghast is hidden deep within The Maw.

Currently, only the first three layers are available

Note that, at the moment, only the first three layers of the tower are accessible. Each layer has six floors though, so don’t be too disappointed!

The remaining layers will roll out in North America on these dates:

  • November 24 – Layers 1 – 3
  • December 8 – Layers 4 – 6
  • December 15 – Layers 7 – 8

Until then, you can still battle your way to glory. Be careful, because Torghast may quickly become a tower of terror.
