Ahoy, captains! The Midnight Isles Challenge begins!

Anyone willing to participate may do so by following this set of simple rules:

  1. Pick one of 5 difficulty levels: Normal, Daring, Core, Hard, Unfair and activate the Last Azlanti mode (don't worry, you can still load the game at checkpoints with this mode!)

  2. Play DLC3: The Treasure of the Midnight Isles in Roguelike mode, recording or streaming the whole playthrough.

  3. Defeat all the main bosses of the DLC or as many as you can manage by September 18, 23:59 CEST, and make screenshots of all the score screens you see in the game (the ones that feature the number of attempts, damage stats etc.)

  4. Fill in this registration form and send it before September 18, 23:59 CEST: https://forms.gle/ULQoNgjuaQa6umhFA. Note that you will be required to upload the video.

  5. Five champions, one for each level of difficulty, who killed the most bosses with the lowest number of attempts in the shortest time, will get their names highlighted in our social media and receive Season Pass 2 keys the moment they become available!

Important notes:

- Your game must be free of any mods.
- You may freely retrain your characters if the difficulty level allows it.
- Both RtwP and TBM can be used in any combination.
- You may freely use any builds, classes and Mythic Paths.

Good luck!

P.S. I'd be grateful if the moderator team could stick the event for the week it lasts.

I'm sure inquiring minds would like to know, does the secret boss count for the boss total? :P

Definitely :) It's not considered a main boss, but there's a handful of additional ones, and killing more of them puts you above other competitors.

Exciting!! The last challenge was over a year ago, glad it’s also not just limited to streamers ❤️

We heard you the last time! Time to board your ship :)

Why tell us to activate last azlanti mode when it doesn't give us a choice regardless?

We're working on a mode where you can turn it off, and it wasn't clear whether it would be ready by the time the challenge began.

Was that the one where the water elemental ended so many early runs? I think that guy has the highest kill count.

Yup, the most brutal enemy.

I'm not any sort of streamer but I am at least interested in the challenge. I can probably figure out the technical side of recording myself and upload it somewhere but I have a few questions.

How should I handle breaks between sessions? There is no way I'm playing all the way though the dlc without taking a break. Is each session as a separate video file fine, or do they need to all be spliced together?

Are there any restrictions on what version of the game I play on? I believe the most recent patch closes a couple fairly large exploits for treasure of the midnight isles, and I'm not sure how to handle version changes while the challenge is running. You say you may freely use any builds, classes and mythic paths, but it doesn't seem fair if some people can use legend early and some cannot.

Please correct me if I have anything wrong, the primary score is the number of main bosses killed at least once. The first tiebreaker is number of attempts used with lower being better, and the final tiebreaker is total playtime as shown on the score screen with lower being better.

It isn't clear to me immediately what is or isn't a mini boss. >! I would assume the final islands before returning to port which have a special graphic, and end the run the first time cleared are the main bosses, and the final enemies of the other islands before ports might be considered minibosses, but I'm not sure of that. Some clarification, with spoiler tags if needed on who to count and how would be very helpful.!<

You can post it as separate videos, as long as there isn't any gameplay between them, it's fine. You have to play on the current version of the game. And you are correct regarding tiebreakers.

Had a blast participating! Any word on when the winner will be announced and what their score was? I think I have a decent shot for the Normal run!

Hello! We'll post it in a few days.
