Additions
  • The PVP Arena system has been added.
  • A new rule has been added to the Heritage Rules page. "Players are prohibited from attempting to duel themselves in anyway. Anyone caught trying to exploit the Arena ranking system will be purged from the Arena system and fined."
There are a total of four Arenas for organised, formal player versus player content; whether it be single duals, guild teams or extensive tournaments.

Arena Styles
There are two styles of arenas, style one is found at Ocllo, Felucca and Haven, Trammel

The second style is found in Lost Lands, both Felucca and Trammel, close to the Minoc/Khaldun entrance

Pets
Each arena has an Arena Manager, use the context menu on this NPC to stable or claim a pet.


Starting a Dual
To open the arena menu double click the arena stone found at the entrance. From this you can check your arena stats, if you have any, and host or join a duel. You will need to set the ‘Ignore duel invite’ option to ‘OFF’.

Clicking on ‘Host a duel’ will open a menu allowing you to set the rules for your encounter, click the arrow till you reach your selection, clicking past the maximum returns you to the first setting. Options are as follows:
