GW2 Fractals of the Mists Dungeon Guide

Fractals of the Mists is the first dynamic dungeon in Guild Wars 2. It is comprised of a series of mini dungeons called fractals. Each time you start your adventure in the Fractals of the Mists you will be assigned three random fractals with bonus “boss fractal” at the end. Every time you re-visit the hub, the dungeon scales up in difficulty and becomes more rewarding. Fractals is also the place where you will be able to earn the new Ascended items and Infusions.


The entrance to the Fractals of the Mists is located in Lion’s Arch at a new Asura Gate.

Once your entire party accepts to enter the Fractals you will find yourself in a mini hub called Mistlock Observatory. From here you have access to two merchants (one standard and one that accepts the new fractal currency) and a blue “portal” in the middle that, once entered, will issue a Fractal Transit Query that will take you to a randomly chosen Fractal. Once you complete a fractal you get a loot chest will and another Fractal Transit Query will be presented (until you complete three of them).
