With Halloween roughly a week away, the spooky excitement grows strong in Tyria. ArenaNet announced a brand new update that will take place on October 29th– just a few days before Halloween. Spooky– and fearful– times are ahead. This update is being called Tower of Nightmares, and will focus on the monstrosity and illusion-covered veil that are taking shape in Kessex Hills. The krait are up to something, and it’s definitely not good.
Some new rewards for the update include a new skill called Antitoxin Spray that can be used by any profession to cure your character and nearby allies of poison, torment, confusion, and toxin. Players who complete the Tower of Nightmares meta achievement will also gain access to the Krait Obelisk Shard, which can be used in a home instance for earning a skill point or recharging Quartz Crystals.
