The Gauntlet is a solo minigame in Prifddinas in which the player is given a limited amount of time to explore a randomly generated dungeon layout, gather various resources and supplies by skilling and defeating crystalline monsters, all in preparation to defeat the Crystalline Hunllef, which is based upon a deadly wolf-like predator from the elven homeworld of Tarddiad. The Gauntlet was created as a training ground by the Amlodd Clan to ensure their warriors were capable of defending Prifddinas during the God Wars.
The Gauntlet can be found by entering the Gauntlet Portal, found in the north-western part of Prifddinas.
Players cannot bring any items into The Gauntlet; when entering the minigame, all items currently on the player will be automatically stored for its duration. It is a dangerous minigame, so hardcore ironmen will lose their hardcore status, and ultimate ironmen will lose items in instanced banks should they die in The Gauntlet.
The area contains crystals, roots, herbs and fish obtainable through Mining, Woodcutting, Fishing and other gathering methods, in order to make weapons, armour, potions and food. These various resources will not require a specific skill level to gather, though higher skill levels will grant more resources at a faster rate. The dungeon will also contain various crystalline monsters, such as bats, unicorns and dark beasts, which can be killed for further supplies. Higher level monsters will offer better drops at the cost of taking more time to defeat.
Completion of The Gauntlet will reward players with various loot, including crystal armour seeds for crystal armour, as well as Enhanced crystal weapon seeds for the Blade of Saeldor or the Bow of Faerdhinen and the crystal shards required to charge the items. Failing to finish, either by death or leaving early, will give a small token reward based upon how well the player performed, but won't grant any chance of unique items.
