    PVE Mode: The Gauntlet

    The Gauntlet is a type of Quest event. The first Gauntlet is called "Civil War", and can be found within the Quest selection screen.

    The Gauntlet Quest has these major differences from standard Quest events:
    1. Every node has an energy cost, unlike standard Quest events where only the first node costs energy and all nodes after that have no energy cost.
    2. Revive potions are not allowed. If you die, you can replay the node but it requires you to re-pay the energy cost for that node instead of using a revive potion.
    3. Rewards are given immediately after completing each node, so you do not have to complete the entire Quest before receiving your rewards from each node.
    4. Enemy health is NOT persistent. In normal Quest events, when you die and retry the node the enemies have the health amounts that they ended the previous battle (they would heal a small amount), meaning it's easier each time you die and retry. However, in the Gauntlet Quest enemy health resets every time 100%.
    5. Specific nodes in the Gauntlet Quest have first-time rewards, which means the very first time that you complete that node, you will get a unique reward. You only get this reward the very first time you complete that node, and every time you complete it again on later runs through the Quest you receive only the standard reward drops. These are the first-time guarantee reward drops:
      • Complete node 10 - 3 Iron Packs
      • Complete node 15 - Exclusive new Epic gear Dreamweaver Staff
      • Complete node 20 - 650,000 gold
      • Complete node 25 - 2 Bloodstone Packs
      • Complete node 30 - 2 Tomes of Ascension
      • Complete node 35 - Exclusive new Mythic gear The Golden Prince's Pauldron
      • Complete node 40 - Exclusive new Legendary hero Qunari Defender
    6. The Gauntlet Quest is MUCH longer than a standard Quest. This first one, Civil War, has 40 nodes.
    7. The Gauntlet has a timer like a keyed event. The timer is 40 minutes in total. If you finish or quit the map, then the map resets and you will have to restart from the beginning with a fresh timer.
    8. The Gauntlet is available at all times, just like The Banished Plane. It does not expire! So don't worry if you can't complete it right away. It's designed to be difficult and take some practice.
    Good luck!

    Yeah, because the FTL was accidentally included in a pack where it wasn't supposed to be We have checks in place now to prevent that kind of accident from happening again.

    It's not really comparable. Each node has its own defined rate for dropping Tomes, and as you progress in the Gauntlet, the rate increases - that is, you may start at, for example, 1% on the first node, and end up at 5% on the last node, and the nodes in between are progressively increasing between those values.

    Because Civil War has more nodes, a single run of Civil War has more chances to drop tomes. But Civil War is also significantly more difficult and is harder to get to the end nodes where the rates are the highest.

    The values given are intentional.

    As you progress through the event, the gold and xp values increase, so they start very low on the first node, and then by the final node they're pretty high.

Or is it intended? If so, sorry. If it is not, then you could boost it little or at least the last nodes could be better even compared to Origins it seems not that, good, but maybe I am wrong, did not do Origin, just something in my memory , which can be bad.

Moderators are here to uphold and enforce these rules and the Terms of Service.

2. Second Offense - 3 day ban
3. Third Offense - 1 week ban

Customer Support Inquiries
All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. 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.

Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


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 Lead 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. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. 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 under the appropriate heading.

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. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

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 and/or game.

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:

EA TOS English
EA TOS French
EA TOS German
EA TOS Russian
EA TOS Spanish

By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
