The Gauntlet is a solo minigame which has some substantial requirements. When you start at both the normal and corrupted gauntlets, your chance of death within the minigame will be quite high. This can be reduced through minion learning (down to 6%).
To begin a trip, use

True(the corrupted option may be left off if doing normal gauntlet).
- Level 80 in all combat stats (90 for Corrupted)
- Level 77 Prayer
- Level 70 in the following skills:
- 200+ quest points
- Corrupted Gauntlet also requires at least 50kc in the normal Gauntlet.
- Augury & Rigour prayers both provide a 3% boost.
- Higher KC provides a speed boost (up to 20% at 100kc).
The standard rewards from gauntlet can be obtained here such as Crystal shards alongside runes, gems, arrows, and rune/dragon alchables. The unique rewards include:
You can create a Crystal bow or Crystal halberd (used at ToB). Both require 78 smithing and crafting.
Crystal bow- Requires 40 shards
Crystal halberd- Requires 40 shards
You can create all 3 pieces of the crystal armour set. Each armour piece requires level 70/72/74 smithing and crafting respectively.
Crystal helm- Requires 150 shards
Crystal body- Requires 300 shards
Crystal legs- Requires 450 shards
You need 82 crafting and smithing to create both the inactive and charged versions of the blade/bow. The charged bow provides boosts to bosses such as Sara, Arma, Zulrah, and CoX. The charged blade is used at ToB. Charged versions can be reverted back to inactive versions and inactive weapons can be reverted back to seeds (costs 250 crystal shards for the latter).
Blade of saeldor (inactive)- Requires 100 shards
Bow of faerdhinen (inactive)- Requires 100 shards
Blade of saeldor (c)- Requires 1000 shards
Bow of faerdhinen (c)- Requires 2000 shards
