Torment is the highest difficulty setting in Diablo III, replacing the earlier Inferno difficulty. It is unlocked when one character on the account reaches level 60, regardless of whether or not Reaper of Souls is installed. It is broken into 16 different levels, adjustable at will. It can be changed from the main menu, and decreased at any time during the game unless playing a Hardcore character.

The Infernal Machine event must be completed in Torment.
