In our previous newsletter we announced our plan for integrating Player versus Player (PvP) systems into Alganon. The first stage is completed and players will now be able to participate in open-world PvP with players from the opposite faction, and compete in non-lethal duels with anyone. Now is the time to practice your dueling skills because the first Arena of Command will be held in a few weeks!
The Arena of Command
The Arena is a weeklong tournament where players will compete to be the sole survivor in their experience level band. Contests will be held for characters from level 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, and 50. The winner in each category will receive a one of a kind PvP trinket to aid them in the coming war. Worth playing for? Let's get started!
Practice, practice, practice. Arena of Command matches will be one-on-one, mano a mano, man vs. man. The best way to prepare yourself for a match will be to engage in duels with other players. You can now duel another player virtually anywhere in the world. The exception to this is in the two major cities where dueling is restricted to the clearly defined Tournament Grounds (Asheran) or Winnower's Circle (Xanjuix Karr). To duel another player simply target him, on his portrait right click and select "Duel". If the player can be challenged he can choose to duel you and a submission fight ensues. In no case can a character be killed while dueling! The killing blow is always averted as the losing player submits to his foe.
Open World PvP
The question is, do you feel lucky today? Maybe you're just so bad, luck is what you make it. Either way you can now show the world your confidence by flagging yourself for PvP. By turning on your PvP flag you are informing the opposing faction that they can attack you without warning. They will do so at great peril however, because attacking you will flag them in kind. But be warned, this is not a duel, rather a fight to the death. Keep a keen eye out for your enemies, the agents of war are determined to sow destruction upon the lands.
