Yesterday, ArenaNet announced the coming addition of a new high-end dungeon for Guild Wars 2 called Fractals of the Mist. We take a look at Fractals in a brand new preview. Read on and then tell us what you think in the comments.
The Fractals of the Mists is a bit like ArenaNet’s “lesson learned” from the dungeons GW2 launched with. There is no “explorable mode” or “story mode”: there is only “The Fractals”. Essentially, the Asura have figured out a way to teleport people into different parts of the Mists (the fabric of time and space that holds Tyria together). For the glory of research (and loot of course), players of any level can enter the Fractals and take part in a series of nine mini dungeons that are cycled at random and become more difficult as you progress. Though you can enter at any level, the intended design is for level 80 players. Loot scales for your level appropriately, as it does in WvW, so level 2 players shouldn’t expect to find any Ascended loot while doing the Fractals until they’re level 80.
