Enter the Tower of Nightmares

The dark tower in Kessex Hills has been breached! Now is the time to storm the tower and begin setting things to rights. Within the morbid stronghold of the Toxic Alliance, you’ll find new dangers, new challenges, and come face-to-face with terror incarnate.

    Take an inside look at the November 12 release with ArenaNet devs during a livestream on our Twitch channel on Wednesday, November 13, at 12PM PST.


    You may have found a way into the Toxic Alliance’s inner sanctum, but this has by no means curtailed their nefarious activities! Kessex Hills and the surrounding countryside are still befouled by the alliance’s evil presence!


    Enter rooms within the Tower of Nightmares to brave special encounters—but beware! Things are not all as they seem. You can never know what awaits you within these dark rooms. Will you find yourself face-to-face with Scarlet’s agents, or a much more insidious enemy? It’ll take strength, determination, and a cool head to survive the trials that await you.


    Marjory Delaqua has developed a special antitoxin to put an end to the deadly plant at the heart of the tower, but the first team dispatched to inject it never returned… Fight your way to the upper chamber in a last-ditch battle to destroy the toxic menace!


  • Antitoxic Fashion

    Complete the meta achievement for The Nightmares Within to unlock a special Gasmask Skin! As the latest design in air purification and toxin prevention, the Gasmask is a universal skin that can be applied to any piece of head armor.gw2-the-nightmare-within-patch-gas-mask


  • Exclusive New Looks

    Complete your wardrobe with an Air Filtration Device—a dry-land version of the starter aquatic helm—or the Toxic Spore back item!


  • Brand-New Minis!

    Two new Toxic Krait miniatures are on the loose! You have a chance to pick up one from Toxic Alliance foes you destroy, and the other can be earned by killing a very special enemy, hidden deep in the heart of the Tower of Nightmares.


  • Tri-Key Chest

    The Tri-Key Chest holds a chance for special treasures. Collect the three keys to open it from foes within the tower, or barter for them with Marjory’s Helper, Dee. Open the chest to see what lies inside!





  • Ares Zax

    No pictures yet of the Toxic Spore back item?

    • I believe it is in the spvp locker, I will check 🙂

    • I put up 2 pics of it, should see it when you refresh the page 🙂

      • Ares Zax

        Thanks Dulfy! 🙂 Soooo, it’s just a Toxic Seedling that hovers in the air behind your head? Guess I’ll be sticking with my Fervid Censer on my Sylvari.

  • MauricioCezar

    Now .. this is a find!
    This time they got my attention 😀

  • Vin Dy

    “The Tri-Key Chest holds a chance for special treasures.” – I just laughed at this description. Honestly, I don’t think this chest is any more special than the current ones we have. (Yey, I got another superb green item to be salvaged for all that effort! Hoorah!)

    Let’s hope I am wrong about this. The tower dungeon content SEEMS very interesting though based on the their description.

  • Brandon Fields

    I have to admit that gas mask is some sexy stuff. Now if I could only race change my Asura engineer so it would scale properly and not look absurdly disproportionate. Maybe that’s why they offered the aquatic mask as an option? ~_~

    Will probably get it anyway.

    • Brandon Fields

      Gas Mask – Chat Code [&AgH9vgAA]

      Each race has it’s own version of the model and scales appropriately. Glad they didn’t do the one size fits all thing here. Looks good.

      • Doctor Steam

        Show a preview of it on an asuran please.

        • Brandon Fields

          Here you go front and side views. You can actually see through the glass with lighter dyes didn’t think to change my dyes before hand. I dig the black look though with it.

          • Doctor Steam

            Yeah I like the black look. I have the same armor you do lol, Cant wait to get this helm since there aren’t much engi looking gear.

            • Doctor Steam

              Is that black or abyss dye? I tried this out tonight on my guy. I can’t wait to get it.

              • Brandon Fields

                It’s Black. Abyss I’m sure will probably look better.

              • Doctor Steam -TC

                Midnight Ice dye with mystic shield and pistol look amazing. Ill use a light blue for the glass part of the gas mask.

  • ilexglabra

    So, is it a group dungeon? Or, an open world zerg fest? Or, a solo instance?

    • henry

      There is a dev twitter post saying that tower interior is open-world with small instances in it. I think of Queen’s Gauntlet.

  • Hexhibition

    The pig-tailed asura seems to be wearing a completely new set of armor and I want that armor!

    • Braghez

      Lol, actually it’s a mix of T3 and 2 (chest and pants should be 3 while the rest is 2) of the Asuran medium cultural armor

      • Hex

        Ah, you’re right.

      • Pip Clank

        actually its just a full T2 set (apart from the headpiece obviously)

        Not that it matters much, I just really love the set :>

  • Brandon Fields

    Gas mask and air filtration skins are available now via Toxic Seed Boxes in Heart of the Mists from sPvP vendors for 750 glory each there is a 5 per day limit. You have a small chance at the skins for each box you open there is also a chance to get temporary toxic seed finishers and pristine toxic spore samples and toxic recipes. Did my 5 and got a air filtration skin. Not sure how else they’re available right now.

  • ZeroJB

    Can i use the gasmask on my aquatic helmet?

  • Elena Callegari

    wonder why every patch has to do with fucking up a previously beautiful region of the world adding purple and gray colors mixed with greenish poisonous stuff. do all enemies have a bad taste or is the green purple palette just cheaper?either way i’m kinda tired of seeing new ”Orr’s” everywhere. Orr is already depressing enough, wish we could see a land turned into a beautiful landscape with actual colors and decent looking enemies for once.

    • Reth The Painless

      Toxic Kraits are pretty nice

    • Mike

      honestly I think that is the point, so that then when the game is winding down and in to gw3 we start taking over those areas and the beauty comes back to them.

    • Retek The Great

      A LOT of people complain that the living story doesn’t feel “alive” enough, that’s probably why they change maps lately (great idea imo)


    Will this be a dungeon ?

  • axyd

    OMG I hope the gas mask on asuras look like a the fishbowl sandy wears in sponfebob…please take my money!

  • Semtano

    Someone know where is the diving google spot for “tower of night6mares diver”?
    cuz i jump from diving googles spot and nothing hapend:C

    • Zietlogik

      There are 2 spots, first is right ourside the story instance entrance, second is once you complete the story instance, there is a portal you can take, that gets you outside the tower.
