And now, listen… Targon has a message for you…


Only the strongest warriors throughout history gained access to the Crucible. To prove you are worthy, capture the first of the Deadly Sins once and for all. Do that and Vulgrim will show you the way. The more Sins you defeat, the further into the Crucible you may pass.

Once you have entered the Crucible, enemies will come at you in 25 waves. If you survive a set of five, you are given a choice: take your reward and leave or proceed and risk losing everything. Endure all one hundred waves in one go and you will face the final challenge.

So to reiterate:

  1. Defeating the first “real” Sin unlocks the Crucible and the first 25 waves
  2. Second “real” Sin unlocks the next 25 waves
  3. Third “real” Sin unlocks the next 25 waves
  4. Fourth “real” Sin unlocks the last 25 waves
  5. Defeat five waves without dying: you can either take your loot (rare crafting materials, new enchantments, new armour sets and a vast amount of souls) and run, or continue and risk losing everything
  6. Defeating all 100 waves without dying sets you up for the ultimate and final challenge of the Crucible

Shall we proceed?

In this mighty morsel of digital wonderment, competitors can expect to receive a truly earth-shattering experience: The Crucible.

A legendary challenge whispered with reverence across the universe. Not even the Creator could have envisioned such glorious spectacle as that which is found in this fabled arena.

  • 101 waves of gruelling combat, fit only for the toughest and most steadfast of warriors
  • New armour sets to don as proof of your superiority
  • New enchantments never seen until now
  • Rare crafting materials to improve your weapons and enhancements

All provided by the generous, steady hand of the Crucible’s Overseer.

That’s right, it is… Targon! Founder of this stupendous arena, and the only one ever to conquer it. So what say you, challenger? Do you have what it takes to surpass me?

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
