    Thanks. That's a very good suggestion.

      I'd go with an Inquisition setup in LSC, Eva, Cole, Hissera and Gurn. Should get you at least into the 20s level-wise. Early levels a speed/power rune should be sufficient, once you hit 19-20 or so you may want to switch to double health. And yeah, farming 19 is always a good idea.

      Test your mileage here - Sera is also a great Inq option but you'll lose valuable squad slots on commons/uncommons if you want to maximize her, I'm not sure she's quite the way to go here unless you could build a full LSC, x2 Sera team. Sera is in the 25k knight pack - save your gold and go hunting?

      Good luck!

        ​Great suggestion. Thank you. I'll test it when that team is ready and let you know how far it gets me. Though, with Cole, it's a matter of RNG (or how many time he'll hit in that first round).

          Ritts and Seeker Cass are good options too. With all the gain going on you really want to just keep Gurn alive. Seeker Cass and Eva can help with that.

            I agree, it is difficult that slow heroes survive at gaunlet.
            Odesius is right, you should use LSC well forted and tiered with Eva, gurn and Sera.
            And you would improve your mage squad opening this week CP/GCP and getting 1 Solas, I think a LSC, Solas/Ap Sol/FH, Eva, Sera and gurn squad would be very dangerous at gaunlet and you will have more possibilities to complete the nodes.

              So, as a new player I'm a little confused on the Gauntlet. When I've clicked on it to start the timer, it requires 200 energy just to start. The original post states that each node has an associated cost. Does that mean it's 200 energy to start plus additional energy for each node?

                ​There are 40 nodes total, costing 5 energy each. (The 200 energy you see in the beginning). The energy cost is subtracted separately in each node.

                  I agree with Iris.
                  And you can play gaunlet even if you don't have 200 energy points and do a refill to complete it or quit when your energy points run out, you get specifit toons or rewards per node, you don't need to complete gaunlet to get some prizes.

                    ​Not to blow my own horn, but here's a thread detailing each gauntlet node. It should help you make an informed decision about whether or not you want to brave that quest.

                      Thanks Iris. I don't even have enough total energy to pay the cost of admission right now, but I'm curious as to how it works. Is it 200 Energy up front and that's it like BP, or is there an additional energy cost for each node. That's not clear from your post.

                        Thanks, this is what I was wondering. That makes sense.

                          ​No, nothing upfront. It's like any other normal PvE map, except for the brutal opposition. You can even replay a node if you get defeated.

                            Wow, this had me totally confused. I saw the 200 energy requirement and just went back to the home page. I didn't even think it would be possible to enter. Thanks to all.

                              ​I think it's there to inform people of the total cost, in case they don't want to spend any gems for refills. And to scare away low-level players. I certainly nope'd out back when I first started playing this game.

                                You are welcome

                                I think it is useful to play gaunlet even if you don't complete it if you don't want to do any refill, if you arrive to low gaunlet nodes, as node 19, you can get Magister Dorian, or Necromancer Dorian, in every node there are different toon drops.
                                There are a list with all possible gaunlet toon drops per node.

Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                                Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.


                                Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                                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:
