Making Fractal Dungeons More Viable

Making Fractal Dungeons More Viable -

The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with a new post by ArenaNet's Mike Zadorojny that discussing "sweeping changes to the Fractals of the Mists".

The discussion begins with changes to fractals including:

  • fractals will consist of one island out of a list and will be able to be completed in a short period of time, say 30-60 minutes up to 90 for longer events
  • players can practice fractals to learn the challenges without need to reroll fractals to get the one desired
  • mistlock instabilities are being reevaluated and new ones will be added
  • new achievements and rewards to let players show off their prowess
  • Legendary backpacks will be introduced. " Together with any of the armor crafting professions (armorsmith, leatherworker, or tailor), you’ll start with a simple new backpack and build it into the new precursor back item. Just like all future precursor and legendary items, this precursor will be account bound and can’t be traded—it must be earned."
  • Ascended salvaging
  • bonus subobjectives
For players who’ve been hunting for fractal weapon skins, we’re making a couple a changes. The first is that there will be a collection for obtaining them all, including a new reward for its completion. The second change will help address the frustration of trying to find that one particularly elusive skin you really want that won’t drop no matter how many fractal runs you attempt. Once you’ve completed fractal scale 50, the golem BUY-2046 in the Mistlock Observatory will sell you a fractal weapon crate for pristine fractal relics, which will grant you a fractal weapon skin of your choice.
