I hope so much there’s something like Torghast in Dragonflight. Torghast was so much fun to me. It is still the one thing in SL I have done the most of, and it is what encouraged me to level all of my alts (I wanted to do twisting corridors level 8 with every class, and I did with toons between ilvl 185-223). I loved the challenge aspect of it and I most certainly loved the powers that could make things get insane. I’ve made some crazy builds.
Now, arguably I had a lot more fun with it on Beta before they gutted a lot of stuff, and I really wish they’d have left the infinite mode in.
It shouldn’t have been tied to player power, imo. It should have been solely to offer unique cosmetics and mounts, etc. For example, completing twisting corridors 8 (or completing max layer of each regular wing of torghast) should have given us an updated version of the ICC tier gear. That would have been awesome. But it was something I enjoyed doing and I’ll be very sad when it’s gone.
I loved being able to go into content solo, or with friends, and just “dungeon crawl.” It was a lot of fun to me. Having the random modifiers and powers was also a lot of fun.
Torghast =/= Island Adventures imo, because island adventures were boring and E A S Y AF. If island adventures had been challenging and not just a “round up the entire island, AOE down and collect nodes while one person repeatedly kills the opposing faction NPCs” they might have actually had some fun to it. But instead, they were tiny little islands that got super repetitive super quick.
Torghast took me at least 100-200 hours before I got to where I can walk in and I know the layout of every floor, where things are likely to spawn, which mobs most likely have powers because they almost always spawn there on that floor, etc.
Islands took about 10 hours of playtime to reach that point lol.
