ExileCon, the first official Path of Exile convention, is in a week! We have updated the ExileCon web page with the schedule for the event. We'll continue to tweak the schedule over the next week if various presentations or speakers change. This news post is primarily aimed at attendees. If you're interested in just information about the ExileCon announcement livestream, then we've been slowly updating our Livestream post over time.

Apply for an NZeTA before travelling!
The first and most important reminder is that New Zealand has introduced a system where you must apply for an "NZeTA" online before arriving in the country. As far as we can see, almost all ExileCon visitors from overseas must apply for one. We recommend doing this as soon as possible. Thankfully, the process does not look difficult. Full details and the application form are on this page.

VIP Dinner
For attendees with a VIP or Ultra VIP pass, the weekend kicks off with a VIP dinner on Friday evening at the Wildfire Churrascaria. It's primarily a meat restaurant but vegetarian options are available. The 250 player VIPs will be joined by 50 Grinding Gear Games staff members, intermingled at the same tables. The dinner starts at 6pm on Friday November 15, and the restaurant is located at Shed 22, Auckland. That's seriously the address.

Registration
In the Aotea Square (next to the Aotea Centre where the event is taking place), we're building a big registration tent where you can pick up your badge. In order to do so, you'll need to show the QR code that is visible on your Path of Exile account page on the website. We'll also email you a copy of this code for convenience.

The registration tent is open during these hours:
  • Friday: 2pm - 8pm
  • Saturday: 7am - 5pm
  • Sunday: 9am - 5pm

You must show photo ID that matches the name on your ticket, and because we need to check your age (the event is a Restricted 16 event). You'll also need to carry your ID for the whole event because we will be spot checking that people's badges match their name when they enter the venue.

When to Arrive on Saturday
The keynote presentation (with the big announcements) starts at 10am, but there's an hour of seating time and pre-show speculation (streamed both to the internet and the main theatre) beforehand. We recommend picking up your badge on Friday and then arriving around 9am to get seated and comfortable before the big show. Regular badges will indicate either "Stalls" (bottom floor) or "Circle" (middle floor) for seating, so that attendees know which floor has room for them on.

Cosplay Weapon Policy
All cosplay weapons brought to the venue will be checked to make sure that they are not capable of harming anyone.

Race Finals Rules
Four racers have qualified for positions in the ExileCon race finale. Important rules for this event are as follows:

  • Event Goal: Kill Kitava in the Cathedral Rooftop in Act 5
  • Winning Criteria: Fastest time
  • Game Version: 3.8.2b
  • This event is not hardcore, but when your character dies, they won't be able to move for 60 seconds. You also won't be able to select 'Revive at Checkpoint'.
  • This event is fixed seed. Every player is contending with the same layout. The minimap won't be revealed.
  • Macros: no third-party programs of any kind may be used. Copy-pasting commands (e.g. /hideout) from a notepad file is okay.
  • Screen-watching: As the event will be on a stage and it is fixed seed, players will not be allowed to look at other players' monitors or the screen behind you on the stage. Players will be warned if seen doing this. Multiple warnings will result in a disqualification.
  • Muling between characters on the same account is allowed.
  • The provided accounts have the Scion unlocked and a default hideout provided.
  • We will pre-load the competition computers with racer-provided config files and item filters.
  • GGG's decision is final but we'll attempt to be as fair as possible.
  • Prizes are US$10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $2,500 for third place.

Twitch After Party
The Twitch After Party runs from 8pm to 11pm on Sunday evening. It's a Restricted 18 event, so you need to bring ID to get in. Your ExileCon badge has a voucher on the back for one free drink, which you can redeem at one of the bars in the venue. We recommend having dinner before the party, but some light food will be provided during the party.

Sponsors
We'd like to thank HP OMEN, Twitch and Twitch Prime for sponsoring ExileCon!

Discord Server
We have created a Discord Server for ExileCon attendees. You can join it with this link. This is the best place to ask questions during the event.

We're very excited to meet everyone at ExileCon! See you all in a week!

Hope this works for you. Seems like an awful lot of fuss.

Make sure to check the inventory of the attendees for Chaos and Alchemy orbs.
