“The Realm of Dreams” Preview Recap

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on 26th February, 2024

Greetings, Tyrians!

We are one day away from the launch of our second major update for Guild Wars 2®: Secrets of the Obscure™—”The Realm of Dreams”! Over the last week, we’ve shared some previews of what’s coming in tomorrow’s update on our social channels, and we thought it would be good to round them up here on the blog.

Catch up on what you’ve missed:

With “The Realm of Dreams,” we’re introducing a new set of legendary armor—for all three armor types—that doesn’t require heavy investment into raids or competitive experiences. In the final update to Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Obscure later this year, you’ll be able to upgrade this armor and unlock extra effects. Take a peek at these stunning armor sets:
