  • During the gauntlet you will have to battle monsters of increasing difficulty, culminating in all of the dragons. There are occasional points to rest and recover, but you will need many supplies to successfully complete the gauntlet.
  • Don't forget to pack a few wands of the alignment weaker to you, monsters of your own alignment will still fight you in the gauntlet. Also, bring either plenty of bandages/pieces of honeycomb or lots of exotic cocktails and coffee. Of course, the wizards hat is really handy too. Also a golden gun and its ammo.
  • Do remember that starting again from the beginning is better than dying, so if you can't heal and you're having bad luck, break a talisman!
    • Be advised that it costs 50AP to get back into the gauntlet if you do this (i.e., it's not like most quests, where you pay once and complete the quest at your leisure). This was probably obvious to everybody but me. parking_god 19:25, 25 January 2008 (GMT)
  • Make sure you have an AP to move past a monster when you kill it or else it might respawn before you get a chance to. Monsters in the Gauntlet respawn very quickly.
  • If you have just started Creature Survey, then this is a good place to tick off a few. Emmanovi 20:25, 11 March 2006 (GMT)
I'm not sure who would start this without having creature surveyed... but it is a good place for getting some trophies--naath 15:25, 22 April 2007 (BST)
  • It costs you 50AP to claim your "reward" and train in The Ways of the Desert on completion of the Gauntlet.
  • There is a Gauntlet FAQ with more information.
  • Note that you can do this quest as an Apprentice. Phw 22:29, 22 June 2007 (BST)
  • And as an M.Arm; I suspect there is no class limitation --naath 14:48, 17 October 2008 (BST)
