Diablo 4 New Gauntlet

Diablo 4 Gauntlet and Leaderboards finally coming next week

At least it wasn't a year later

Exactly nine months after the release of Diablo 4, the action RPG will be receiving its new Gaunlet and Leaderboards features. Both features were supposed to come out earlier in Season 3 but were delayed four times before receiving the new release date of March 5.

Hopefully the Gauntlet provides new end-game goals

Diablo 4 has a pretty big end-game content problem right now. There’s not really much to do and hardly a reason to level all the way up to 100 other than just to say you did the grind. However, that might change with the introduction of the Gauntlet.

Accessible for both Normal and Hardcore characters, the Gauntlet unlocks for players on the Seasonal Realm once they’ve gained access to World Tier IV. However, the monsters in the Gauntlet are over Level 100, so it’s recommended players hit Level 100 themselves before giving it an honest try.

The Gauntlet will be a fixed layout and non-linear dungeon that changes weekly. The goal is to get the highest score possible, which is based on the number of Proofs of Might you obtain in the Gauntlet. They are acquired by killing Monsters and opening chests during the eight minutes you are in the Gauntlet. Even though it changes weekly, you can run it as many times as you want, allowing you to learn a weekly layout and get better and more efficient with each attempt.

Each week the Gauntlet will close on Tuesday at 11 a.m. EST and then reopen with a new layout at 1:15 a.m. EST.

Enter the Hall of the Ancients

Leaderboards are finally coming to Diablo 4 and will be centered around progress in the Gauntlet. There are separate Leaderboards for each Class, Party Size, and Normal vs Hardcore character. You can also filter the Leaderboards to only show your Clan members or Friends to see how you rank against those you know.

Those who reach the Top 100 in any Ladder will receive a Conquerors Crest Mount Trophy. But for those who master the Gauntlet even further and reach the Top 10, you can immortalize your character in the Hall of Ancients.

In the Hall of Ancients, your name and character are immortalized with a permanent spot in the Hall, allowing future players to see how you did.

Both new features will be added as part of the Diablo 4 midseason update that goes live on March 5 on all platforms.
