The Gauntlet

A key feature of Season 3 is The Gauntlet, a fixed seed, non-linear dungeon. This means every player faces the same dungeon layout, monsters, and elite spawns, reducing RNG and leveling the playing field. New challenge for players to test their skills with weekly leaderboards and rewards.

  • Who can participate: Accessible to all players who've reached World Tier 4. While Level 100 isn't required, it benefits your potential maximum score.
  • Weekly changes: Each week the Gauntlet dungeon changes, offering fresh challenges and requiring new strategies.

 

 

Maximizing your score in The Gauntlet

Loot mechanics: Loot drops at the end of timer — focus on collecting Proofs of Might throughout the dungeon which boost your score.

Strategy and adaptability: With a fixed dungeon layout success hinges on adapting your strategy to that week's setup — understanding best routes and skill utilization are key.

 

Hall of Ancients

A permanent leaderboard that immortalizes the top ten players from each week across every season.
