The first of four ExileCon Qualifier events starts in less than 24 hours on May 4th, 2PM PDT! This is May 04, 2023 5:00 PM (EDT) in your local time (you will need to be logged in to view the local time). Be sure to join us at to check out all the action, which will be shoutcasted by community streamers ZiggyD and RaizQT!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're participating in the event, please make sure that your Path of Exile account is linked to your Twitch account. You can do this by logging into your account on the website, then clicking here.

In each of these events, players will compete to be the first to kill Kitava in Act 5 in a Standard Solo Self-Found fixed seed environment. While this is not a Hardcore Event, players will incur a penalty upon death where they will not be able to move until a one-minute period has lapsed.

The qualifier events are PC only.

To join the qualifier event, click "Join" in the bottom right corner of the character select screen. Registrations for the event will open 30 minutes before the event starts at 1:30PM PDT, or May 04, 2023 4:30 PM (EDT) in your local time.

The first player to kill Kitava in each event will receive the following:
  • Flights to Auckland, New Zealand for the weekend of ExileCon
  • Accommodation in Auckland for the weekend of ExileCon
  • Entrance into the ExileCon Race Finale
  • An Ultra VIP ExileCon ticket
  • Their choice of one of the below microtransaction bundles

Rules to Qualify:

  • You must connect your Path of Exile account to Twitch and stream your participation (on the linked account) for the whole event. If we can't watch any portion of your streamed entry, you are not eligible to win.
  • If you win one of the qualifier events, you are not eligible to win another.
  • If for some reason one of the event winners is not able to come to New Zealand, their ExileCon tickets, accommodation and flights will transfer to the person who achieves the next fastest time in any event. They will still receive their microtransactions but the other prizes will be transferred to the next eligible person.
  • You must abide by Path of Exile's Terms of Service and Twitch's Terms of Service
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct at any time in the leadup to ExileCon may result in you being disqualified from the event
  • Past and present Grinding Gear Games employees are not eligible to win prizes in these events.

We hope to see you all at the livestream!

It takes 15 minutes to set up streaming. If you have the internet connection to play POE, you can manage to take a few minutes to set up and stream 720p@30fps to qualify for the awards.

Though odds are if you don't already have streaming set up, you're not a speedrunner anyway and won't be able to compete.
awesome! It is more open. I think this is a great opportunity for many people
It's going to be 5AM my time. I won't be tuning in, but good luck to all the participants! I'll be awaiting the VODs.
good luck all! may the power of Ben be with you :D
