The Gauntlet consists of 15 waves. After each wave is complete, a reward of a random item (shards and Heroes included) is added to a large number of gold and/or Dragoncoins. The Gauntlet can be reset once per day and unlocks at Level 30.
You can hire 1 Hero (always Level 80, 5 star?) each(?) round of the gauntlet for a cost of 2 gems.
After every successful wave completed, you are offered a brown chest. Brown chests contain gold and random common items; the amount of gold and rarity of the items increase the further you go in the gauntlet. After every 3rd victory, you will receive a red chest (a total of 5 for the whole gauntlet). Red chests contain Dragoncoins (1st: 100, 2nd: 200, 3rd and 4th: 300, final chest: 400 for a total of 1300 DC), gold, and rare items. It is not uncommon to receive Blue or Purple items, purple and/or hero shards. Red chests one through four may even contain whole 1★ Heroes, final 5th chest may rarely reward you even with a 2★ hero.
Completing the gauntlet with VIP 8 earns you approx. 1.0 - 1.1 million Gold per run, however, without VIP 8 you can earn only as much as about 800k per run.
There are a total of 12 items sold here:
- Two of either 5x Prometheus shards, 5x Hecate shards (at 500 Dragoncoins each), or 5x Helen shards (800 Dragoncoins)
- Refreshing the mall will place two random Heroes' shards from the three above into the mix
- 2 EXP consumables like Wisdom Potions, Wisdom Salves, and Wisdom Cakes
- 8 Rare/Epic items.
You can restock and possibly see new items in the store if you refresh by either waiting for 9pm EST everyday or paying 10 Dragoncoins to refresh. The cost increases if you want to refresh more: 20, 50, etc. This cost resets back to 10 Dragoncoins at 5am EST.
