  • The Gauntlet - Origins!

    After a few months of players chipping away at the long, brutal Civil War gauntlet, a new challenge has arisen with new rewards: Origins!

    This gauntlet is based on the old "Challenge Nodes" around back before the Nexus. As an appropriate reward for all the tree-chopping done in days of yore, the final node reward is a new hero, the Wild Sylvan! New challenges bring with them new discussions, so fire away!

    Node 3: 2 Iron Packs
    Node 6: 1 Bloodstone Pack
    Node 9: Mythic Giant Wisp
    Node 12: 1 Tome of Ascension
    Node 15: New legendary hero Wild Sylvan

    It is far easier than the other Gauntlet, as far as I am concerned... I'm running a levelling warden team till node 12, then switch to my "strong team" (IA / LSC front, AMH / LI back / GD) for the last three.
    I got the Sylvan first run, and Evangeline during my second run. I'm curious to see what else lurks in the shadows of those nodes...
    In Game : Carver le Retour and... Carver le Retour as well (don't ask).

      I'm copy pasting what I said in the patch notes:
      I got in 4 runs x2 ascension tomes, I can also confirm that node 15 Drops Envy Demon, somewhere I got also Sha-Wyrd.

      I also got kitty's collar, Elgar'nan Enaste,Walking Death, Earthwood Shield, Remarkable Emerald, Forgemaster Hammer, Expensive Dog Treats, Elven Armor,Sera's cookies.

        I also received the new Sylvan first run. And Blighted Fennec, if that interests anyone....
        MUCH easier than the last gauntlet, I may run this more often as it can be completed with a levelling team.
        Nice new content!

            Damn you CG for giving us the new shiny thing AFTER I've spent my gem reward from yesterday's PVP on refills to run Tainted Blood. DAMN YOU, I SAY.

            But really, this is awesome. Now I need to mope until I farm enough gems from the PVP ladder for another refill.

              The good thing is they introduced it right before Unflung Heroes, which I probably wouldn't have run much anyways.

                So much goodness coming in 2018. Revamps of key events, raids, this new gauntlet.

                  Very easy. I did it on my first try, without runes, although on the last nodes I had to use my best team. I loved re-playing the old challenge nodes! I got the new Sylvan and I confirm the last node drops Kitty!! Very happy with this new gauntlet. I needed something like this to regain interest in the game. Thanks, CG!

                    I have played this game for at least 1.5 years. I have all heroes from soldier and blood packs and all heroes from all of the events so far (plus a few key heroes like VV, LSC, KD and GD, but I disgress). That, plus some decisions made by CG which I did not like, made me lose interest in the game.

                    In fact, in the last month, I have only played this game during the raid period. Because, well, I was curious about the raid, which turned out to be really cool. I got a lot of mystic gear and tomes of ascension without even trying.

                    And now I got Envy Demon on my fifth try. And other great (and newer) toons like Dragon Malvernis are potential drops. Wow! You will still need to solve the PG time issue for non American players if you want me to spend real money on this game again.

                    But this is definitely a great step in the right direction to keep my interest and restore a bit of my faith in the game until you do. Cheers!

                          So far I've dropped Dagna and Prosper. Ideally I'd like to snag Kitty, DMalvernis and Imshael. One can dream...

                              So far I spent around 120 Gems on it, nothing more to say guys, the Tome of ascension rate is actually very good: got 8 already, Considering I had only Duke Prosper, Kitty, Archon Radonis, Ketojan, Isabela and Merril, now I'm missing only Fen, DMal and Imshael, so I'm not going to deny I'm going to spend all the gems here, this of course, without even consider the crazy amounts of gear and Mythic wisps I'm getting

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
