Live Now: “The Realm of Dreams,” Second Major Update for Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure

“The Realm of Dreams” Is Live

Today, we’re thrilled for you to experience the second major update for Guild Wars 2®: Secrets of the Obscure™—”The Realm of Dreams”! This update contains three new story chapters that begin when Heitor’s barrier has finally fallen. Peitha’s army prepares to march further into the heart of Nayos, but what dangers await beyond the veil, and how much attrition can her forces survive? Peitha and the wayfinder will need new allies to bolster their ranks if they hope to bring the war to Eparch’s gates. But who will they be able to convince to step out from the shadow of the Midnight King?

As a refresher, this update—and the final major update to follow in a few months—are part of the Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure content cycle and therefore included for anyone who owns the expansion!

Items from the new Wizard's Vault refresh including Solar Astrolabe weapons and Skysage's armor.
