Diablo IV reveals a new non-linear fixed dungeon called The Gauntlet, coming next week


Last night’s Campfire Chat stream for Diablo IV saw the Blizzard team reveal The Gauntlet, a “fixed non-linear Dungeon that will pit players of the same class against each other for top rank.” Starting March 5th, players of the OARPG will head to the southwestern port in Gea Kul in the Seasonal Realm on World Tier IV to spy this latest PvE content, though it’s tracked on leaderboards, so you’re competing with other players too.

“Obtain Proofs of Might by slaying demons, opening chests, and completing events. Pillars are scattered throughout the Gauntlet and can increase the number of Proofs earned from each Monster kill. Players’ final weekly score will earn Seals, which are used for eligibility to place on the Leaderboards. There are four ranks to earn: Seal of the Blooded, Seal of the Steadfast, Seal of the Iron-Willed, Seal of the Worthy. Upon the weekly reset, players will earn Caches of Trials which guarantee one Ancestral Legendary and scales in rank with the Cache awarded. Earning the Seal of Worthy will grant the most covetous treasures. Leaderboards are separated by Class, Party size, Normal, and Hardcore. Those who place in the Top 100 of any ladder will earn a Conqueror’s Crest Mount Trophy. Placing in the Top 10 of any Leaderboard will immortalize your name and character in the Hall of the Ancients.”

The stream further touched on Season of the Construct’s mid-season update, which promises a class balance pass and revived vampiric powers from the first season.
