I would like confirmation that you can earn 2 points in each of the 3 "bursts" for this event, by reaching level 5 and staying alive to the end of each burst. They only give it a single event number, event 79 in this case, but the rewards are given separately for each burst, right? I see that in past events like this each burst had its own ladder, so unless they only give your rewards for your best result of the 3 bursts, then it must work this way.

It seems fairly obvious this is how it should work, but would like it in writing. ;^)

I'm not good enough yet to be a real contender for even the 20th best Ranger, the only class I've played so far in PoE. If I reach level 5 and earn 2 points in any of the three bursts I'll be happy. If I do it twice, and only get rewarded once, I'm going to feel cheated.

So far I've only managed to earn a single reward point for most of the events I've tried, so the chance to maybe gain 6 points in less than an hour sounds like a great deal.
you'll get 2 points per race if you get to five and live in each. So you can get 6 points for doing all three. You'd also be surprised, as getting top 20 in your class isn't as hard as you think. A lucky item drop or correct guess on where the exit is can get you an extra point.

I'm pretty sure this will never change. All monsters finish pathing their final attack. For that not to occur would likely entail difficult/impossible changes to the game. More dangerously, degeneration auras continue, so feel free to log off to save yourself in any case.
