Quest Overview

You need to be a member of a Society to participate.

  • Enter either the Celestial Hand Gauntlet, Eldrytch Web Gauntlet or Radiant Blood Gauntlet
  • Important: Rare gems are not allowed - you will not be able to enter the Gauntlet if you have a Rare gem in your inventory. Any active rares will also be dispelled upon entry (with the exception of item rares). However, you can enter with Spectral Rares, rare potions, and any Tier 3 or higher rare.
  • There are three distinct dungeons accessed in front of each society stronghold but you can enter any one of them irrespective of what society you belong to.
  • To initiate the event one must be in the society hosting the event rooms.
  • Anyone level 180 or higher can participate, but beating rooms 8, 10, and 12 flag your for the mini bosses is your society's respective gauntlet - no society, no mini bosses.
  • Each Society may have two concurrent groups attempting the event at the same time for a total of six possible concurrent groups.
  • There are three Gauntlet Bosses that can be accessed after you complete a certain number of stages.
  • Required Slayers include Tumerok, Virindi, Mukkir, and appropriate Tusker, Shadow and Burun slayer wands, even for non-mages.

NPCs

Walk Throughs

Here is a rough set of notes. Note that some spawn information is incomplete and so is the detailed breakdown of the spawn waves:

Most stages have 4 waves of spawns. An exception is stage 5. Recommended group composition is as many missile and void hybrids as possible, with secondary consideration to specialized life mages.

There is also a very good Gauntlet Walk Through by drthunder2 located at this link.

Stage 1
Spawn 1 - Hollow Pawns, Corrosive Archer
Spawn 2 - Hollow Pawns, Virindi Rival, Corrosive Archer
Spawn 3 - Virindi Rival, Tumerok Savage
Spawn 4 - Tumerok Savage
Kill priority: Corrosive Archer >Tumerok Savage > Virindi Rival > Hollow Pawns

  • Tumerok Savages are extremely vulnerable to lightning and pierce damage. CS melee and missile weapons are very effective but not recommended over slayers.
  • Virindi Rivals are vulnerable to lightning and fire.

Stage 2
Spawn 1 - Virindi Rival, Hollow Pawns, Corrosive Archer
Spawn 2 - Lugian Launcher
Spawn 3 - Virindi Rival, Lugian Launcher
Spawn 4 - Hollow Pawns, Lugian Launcher
Kill priority: Lugian Launcher > Virindi Rival > Hollow Pawns

Stage 3
Spawn 1 - Torment Wisps, Corrosive Archer
Spawn 2 - Torment Wisps
Spawn 3 - Torment Wisps
Spawn 4 - Torment Wisps, Corrosive Archer
Kill priority: Corrosive Archer > Torment Wisps > Hollow Pawns

  • Torment Wisps should be imperiled and pierce/slash/blunt vulned (the Wisps are equally weak to all three physical damage types). Melees and archers should us an AR weapon, mages a CS.
  • Adding an acid vuln to increase summoned pets' effectiveness is recommended.

Stage 4
Spawn 1 - Lugian Launcher, Corrosive Archer
Spawn 2 - Tracking Fireball, Vicious Remoran Sapper
Spawn 3 - Hollow Pawns, Vicious Remoran Sapper
Spawn 4 - Vicious Remoran Sapper
Kill priority: Vicious Remoran Sapper > Virindi Rival > Hollow Pawns

  • Do not stand in SW corner as a group of Vicious Remoran Sappers spawns there.
  • Vicious Remoran Sappers stand still and chain-cast war spells. Bring lots of dispel gems for this room.
  • Vicious Remoran Sappers should NOT be vulned; they should be imperiled.
  • Remorans are equally resistant to all damage types. Melee/Missiles should use their best rended weapon. Mages should focus on imperils, and then use arcs (void) or Tusker Fists (war).
  • Archers shuould use Blunt Rend Bows w/ Fetish of the Dark Idols.

Stage 5
Spawn 1 - Pike Grievver, Grievver Darter
Kill priority:Pike Grievver > Grievver Darter

  • Upon entering, your group will be split (at random) between two separate rooms. You will only be able to return to the same room you started in if you die or recall so each group is responsible for clearing their own room.
  • Pike Grievvers and Grievver Darters should be imperiled and slash vulned. Melee/Missiles should use a slash Armor Rending weapon. War mages should use CS slash.
  • The door is triggered by killing all of the Pike Grievvers in each room. When a Pike Grievver dies two Grievver Darters spawn. You can ignore them.
  • The room is small, and has a central column. Flame waves shoot along the outer edges of the room so don't stand there.

Stage 6
Spawn 1 - Vibrant Shadow, Virindi Rival
Spawn 2 - Vibrant Shadow, Virindi Rival
Spawn 3 - Vibrant Shadow, Virindi Rival
Spawn 4 - Hollow Pawns, Vibrant Shadow, Virindi Rival

Spawn 1 - Mukkir Predator, Ruuk Ranger
Spawn 2 - Mukkir Predator, Guruk Grunt
Spawn 3 - 2 Guruk Grunts, 2 Ruuk Ranger
Spawn 4 - 2 Guruk Grunts, 2 Ruuk Ranger, Corrosive Archer
Kill priority: Mukkir Predator > Ruuk Ranger > Guruk Grunt

  • Ruuk Rangers cast a high damage bludge volley (forward cone attack). It can do 200+ damage. A level up animation is played, and there is a chat warning when this occurs.
  • Void mages should focus on the Guruk Grunts and Ruuk Rangers at all times Use burun slayer and nether blast.
  • Guruk Grunts and Ruuk Rangers are both immune to life vulns and destructive curse.
  • Non-mages should use Burun slayer wands and offensive life magic (tugaks and hecatombs) on the Guruk Grunts and Ruuk Rangers. War mages should use Soul Bound (or another rend). Void mages should also use Burun Slayer wands with void blasts/arcs. Designating one void mage to cast Corruption/Corrosion on everything with a green garnet tinked wand (non-slayer) is recommended.
  • Due to extremely high health (~150k) the Guruk Grunts and Ruuk Rangers take a very long time to kill.

Stage 8
Spawn 1 - Crazed Olthoi, Hollow Pawns
Spawn 2 - Crazed Olthoi, Hollow Pawns
Spawn 3 - Crazed Olthoi
Spawn 4 - Crazed Olthoi, Virindi Rivals
Kill priority: Crazed Olthoi > Hollow Pawn

  • Mages should Imperil and vuln all Crazed Olthoi. Melee/Missile should Olthoi Slayer weapons.
  • All magics do very little damage, and should focus on imperil/vulns and the Virindi Rivals/Hollow Pawns.

Spawn 2 - Stinging Armoredillos
Spawn 3 - Stinging Armoredillos, Virindi Rivals
Spawn 4 - Stinging Armoredillos, Virindi Rivals
Kill priority: Stinging Armoredillos > Virindi Rivals

  • Stinging Armoredillos have extremely high magic resistance (over 750). A Spectral Crystal of the Life Giver, Adept / Wise Set, Deck of Eyes, Beers, Clasp of the Heart (NO Life Master 8), Focusing Stone and Brilliance, is recommended for all non archer/melees who should focus all their effort into landing an imperil. Do not expect to have much success imperiling the Dillos with less than ~710 buffed Life magic skill. See Life Magic Mastery (Spell) for spell stacking information to maximize your Life skill.
  • Mages with Life specialized should wield a Focusing Stone and have non-spec-Life characters continually cast Brilliance on them to maximize the chances of landing the crucial imperil spell.
  • Stinging Armoredillos appear to have a shield-like effect when being hit in the front. Arranging your fellow so half of your archers/melees are always hitting the Stinging Armoredillos in the back is recommended.
