Once you unlock all abilities in Halls of Torment, you can survive longer during runs and easily reach level 100 in no time. Being in early access, there are 11 abilities as of now. Since abilities play a crucial role and mostly last till the end of a stage, you shouldn’t miss out on any of the buffs.
