 Path of Exile’s Grinding Gear Games is teaming up with community streamer Zizaran this month to host a boss-kill event. If you can kill The Awakener, you can win a cash prize.

The goal is simple: kill The Awakener while playing in the Heist HC SSF mode. The rewards include both cold hard cash, and microtransaction. The event begins on Heist’s release on September 18, and remember, you can only be eligible for the cash prize if you’re playing in Heist HC SSF League. GGG is creating two custom ladders: one for Order and one for Number of Kills on Awakener.


Cash prizes break down as follows:

  • Third Place: $3,000
  • Fourth-fifteenth Place: $750
  • First Atziri Kill: $750
  • First Uber Atziri Kill: $2500
  • First Shaper Kill: $1500
  • First Elder Kill: $750
  • First Uber Elder Kill: $2500
  • Deepest Delve: $3000 (calculated one month after the league starts)

And here are the randomly drawn MTX prizes:
