Through the Veil, The First Content Update for the Secrets of the Obscure Expansion in Guild Wars 2

“Through the Veil” releases on November 7, 2023. What’s more interesting is that this update will be available for free to all players who have purchased the Secrets of the Obscure expansion. It introduces a new map, activities, and encounters as players embark on a mission to confront the demonic Kryptis within Nayos, the Realm of Dreams.

Among the new offerings in this update, players will gain access to the Inner Nayos map, a new explorable space in the realm of the Kryptis. Nayos will provide a new mastery track that will tie directly to a new encounter type, Convergences. The seasonal Wizard’s Vault will also be updated with new rewards. Additionally, there are new obtainable relics that provide even more character-building possibilities, and a more difficult challenge mode for the Cosmic Observatory strike mission is also being added to the game.

Additional free content for the expansion will continue to be provided through 2024.


Convergences are public events. These are large-scale rifts where players will join a group of up to 50 other players in defeating monsters and threats in the world.

The public version of Convergences operates on a timer, while squads can open Convergences on demand with unstable Kryptis motivations acquired from tier 2 and tier 3 bounties. Players can also earn an unstable Kryptis motivation each week by participating in a Convergence.

Wizard’s Vault Refresh

This new chapter in the expansion will also bring some new rewards to the Wizard’s Vault, with three new armor pieces, new weapon set color variation, and a new infusion among them. Starting with this update, prior season rewards will also continue to be available through a new “Legacy Rewards” tab. Adding to character options will be the arrival of new relics, to allow for new character build types.

Weapons, Skills, and Balance

Six additional expansion relics will be available starting November 7. ArenaNet will continue to expand the build options available to players through additional relics with the other two updates to follow.
