If you venture into the tower of the damned of Torghast with WoW Shadowlands, you cannot avoid the so-called Animaboni. You get these bonuses by collecting animation cells. We summarize for you what class-specific bonuses the Death Knights will receive in Shadowlands.

When the upcoming Shadowlands WoW expansion is released, the Tower of the Damned in Torghast will be one of the key endgame features. To survive here, players in Torghast can collect the so-called animation cells, which grant various general and class-specific bonuses. After we have introduced the bonuses for the shamans to you, we list the animaboni for death knights in this article (via Vanion). If you also want to find out more about the importance of Animaboni in Shadowlands, you can take a look at our separate overview article on Torghast.

But note: This is the current status of the Shadowlands-Alpha. The Animaboni can be in detail until the release of the next WoW (buy now for 33.95 €)-Expansion still change.
