Fractals of the Mists is the latest update to Guild Wars 2, and features an endless dungeon experience which houses the Thaumanova Reactor and two other new Fractals mini-dungeons. Players will also participate in the final battle inside the Tower of Nightmares.

Here’s a list of features:

Aetherblade Fractal: If getting one new Fractal of the Mists is good, then surely getting three new Fractals is even better. The infinite – and infinitely challenging – dungeon has been expanded with not only the Thaumanova Reactor Fractal, but also the Aetherblade Fractal and the Molten Furnace Fractal, giving brave heroes a chance to relive these momentous happenings from Tyria’s not-so-distant past.

Mai Trin Boss Fractal and Molten Boss Fractal: To make things even more exciting, two new special boss fractals have been added to the rotation. Be careful – you may find yourself pitted against the Aetherblade captain Mai Trin or the deadly Molten Alliance boss duo.

Fractal Tower: With great challenges come great chances for reward. The Fractals of the Mists’ rewards have been updated, including the addition of a chance at the brand-new infinite Fractal Tonic. Take a swig and see what you might turn into.

Fractal Improvements: Other updates to the Fractals of the Mists include a difficulty curve revamp, the addition of special Mistlock Instabilities to challenge those heroes daring enough to risk entering fractals with a high level of difficulty, a leaderboard to track the best and bravest among fractal frequenters, and changes to the way Agony Resistance works.

Fractals of the Mists launches November 26.
