Dungeons are optional PvE instances designed for a full party of five. There are eight dungeons at release, found every 10 levels starting at level 30. Three of the eight dungeons are designed for max level (80) players.
Storymode and Explorable Mode
Every dungeon has two modes, storymode and explorable mode. The storymode tells the story of each of the iconic characters of the adventuring band known as Destiny’s Edge and focuses on the tragic breakup of the group.
Explorable mode, on the other hand, can be only accessed once you completed the storymode and continues where the story left off in storymode. Unlike storymode, there are multiple different paths within the explorable mode (usually three) and you must choose one at the beginning of the dungeon. Each path have their own unique bosses and challenges.
Every boss in explorable mode also drops a form of currency that can be exchanged for armor unique to that specific dungeon. This, in combination with multiple paths for explorable modes, allows players to run the dungeons in explorable mode several times to obtain a full set of the armor without feeling too repetitive.
Players are awarded tokens by completing dungeon. These token are used to buy weapons and
armor sets that matches the theme of each dungeon, they are not any more powerful than other items that can be gained in-game. Dungeon vendors are located outside each dungeon and in Lion’s Arch.
