Players will receive points once per character based on their level, specific boss kills and select Maven's Invitations. Don't forget, to get boss kill points you must submit your kills in the Path of Exile Community Racing Discord which you can join by clicking here.

Start time: Feb 02, 2023 4:00 PM (EST). The event will last for 10 days. A countdown is available here.

Please Note: All of the above times are displayed in your local timezone.

Banned Skills

Similar to the last Gauntlet, this Gauntlet event will have “Banned Skill Gems”. These skills include the use of Arc of Surging, Penance Brand of Dissipation or any Detonate Dead gem (Including Vaal and Transfigured versions) in any way. The use of any of these skills on any character will forfeit your right to claim any part of the prize pool including bounties, flash bounties and the main prize pool. Do not equip the skill gems!

Players that do not wish to compete for the prize pool can play any skill they want. You will still be eligible for raffles.

Portal Limitation Rule

In order to receive Boss Kill Points you must only USE THREE OR LESS PORTALS in order to receive them. Entering a fourth portal will make your submission null. Uber bosses have this tech by default, the rest will be manually done.

Transfigured Gem Rule

In order to receive Boss Kill Points you must use a Transfigured Gem as your primary damage source WHILE completing Boss Kill Point objectives. You may use a regular gem at any other point in time in the game if you so wish.

Prize Pool

The prize pool is crowdfunded by Zizaran's event partners and community streamers! In addition, streamers and their communities will be able to create a bounty with the money they fundraise for the event. Bounties are a custom prize that can be awarded to players for achieving a specified goal in the event. This Gauntlet will also have Flash bounties, which are bounties that will pop up in the Racing Discord during the event! Keep an eye out on their social media for announcements regarding when their fundraisers are taking place and what they will be!

      GGG, can you make a statement about the TFT drama?
      If you stay silent that's condoning their behavior....
      My issue was often with act 1 being so much more difficult than red maps. Seem this is pushing this further.

      I guess it will make reaching level 50 possibly more rewarding as most won't manage to do it.
      Good luck to all participating!
