As part of the Path of Exile December event, Zizaran's Gauntlet will allow players to race to eliminate the more powerful, healthier, and faster version of the normal monsters of the game, all of which are hardcore modes. Then, players will earn points based on the bosses killed, the level obtained, and the mining progress. The best performers will receive part of the prize pool crowdfunded by the community anchor and matched by the community anchor Zizaran himself.

The player with the highest overall ranking will win the Gauntlet Trophy and 12% of the prize, while the runner-up will receive 4% of the total prize. In the seven starting classes of the competition, the best performer in each class will also receive 8% of the prize pool, and the runner-up in each class will receive 4%.

The top five players in each Ascendancy Class will receive Demigod’s Authority, a unique one-handed sword that can increase the character size by 5%. For players who want to become stronger, it can stack with other items with the same effect, such as Demigod’s Bounty belt. Or players can Buy Exalted Orbs to get the items they want.

Every time a player reaches level 50, he will receive an Atlantis Mystery Box. The Mystery Box will contain randomly selected micro-transaction items from two sets of unique aquatic-themed equipment and cosmetics: the Siren set and the Deepwater set. At the same time players can directly buy POE Currency. Zizaran's Gauntlet will run from December 10 at 3 pm (12 pm EST) to December 20 at 3 pm (12 pm EST).
