The first content update for Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure launched this week and is free for all expansion owners. This new update is titled “Through the Veil” and adds a new map called Inner Nayos which is located outside the bounds of Tyria. It is home to the Kryptis and Nayos will provide a new mastery track that will tie directly to a new encounter type: Convergences. These large-scale rifts in a unique arena will expand upon the rift hunting activities introduced in Secrets of the Obscure and offer groups of up to 50 players the chance to take on the biggest and most ferocious threats in the Kryptis ranks.
The seasonal Wizard’s Vault also got a refresh, providing access to new earnable rewards like three unique armor pieces, a new infusion, and more. In addition, Through the Veil adds a Legacy Rewards tab, where all the exclusive cosmetic rewards from previous seasons will remain available. New obtainable relics provide even more character build possibilities, and a more difficult challenge mode for the Cosmic Observatory strike mission are also being added to the game.
The expansion will continue to release additional content at no additional charge to expansion players into 2024. On November 28, players will get their first chance to try out a new weapon on their favorite profession. In advance of the next major expansion update, players will have a chance to demo the upcoming expanded weapon proficiencies feature and provide feedback. This special beta event will run from November 28 until December 3.
