Valor Arena!

Want to fight in an arena that is based 100% on skill? Want to earn the respect of your fellow conquer-inites by dazzling them with your awesome ping/mouse prowess? Want to test out a variety of builds, weapons, and skills before you buy those 20 bulks to make them?

Welcome to the Valor Arena! (Name isn't too great tbh, think of a better one.)

The Valor Arena will be an arena where you can test out different builds, gear combinations, skills, and just have a good time, all for the price of a few silver!

There will be an npc in Twin City near the current arena npc who can will teleport you to the Valor Arena for 10k silver.

A few changes here:
1. You are only allowed to enter the Valor Arena once per day. Each time you enter you are allowed to remain in the arena for one hour, after which, you will be teleported back out to twin city. If you discconect you will re-log in the arena, the time will still be used up though, so you cannot disconnect and then come back an hour later and continue.
2. You gain time allowed in VA based on your VIP level. If you are VIP1 you will be allowed to enter arena twice a day (2 hours total), VIP2 = 3 times a day, ect.


Prior to teleporting you to the Valor Arena a menu will cover your screen giving you options for weapons, armor, and other equipment. (Wanna make a snazzy screenshot edit for me ananta?) If anyone has played Guild Wars the screen will be similar to creating a PVP only character on GW.

1. First you will get to choose what level, and reborn path you want your character to be while inside Valor Arena.
2. Second you will get to choose how to distribute your attribute points on said character (if you choose to play as a reborn character).
3. Next you will choose "Extra" equipment, such as your talismans, garment, and horse. Each equipment will have options for what composition level, enchant, blessing, and sockets/gems when applicable, to choose from.
4. You will then get to choose your weapons, armor, necklace/bag, ect, ect, ect. Each equipment will have options for what composition level, enchant, blessing, and sockets/gems when applicable, to choose from.
5. Lastly you will be able to choose what skills and weapon proficiencies you want to have learned.

NOTE: All equipment and skill levels and everything will be max by default. That means they will start out as Super +12 2soc 2sdg/spg -7 +255 health. This is to make the creation process not take forever, since most people will want to try out maxed characters anyways. The options to make them weaker are mainly for people who want to test certain things. For example, I would probably want to test full 1soc +4 or +5's so I can try out a character who I might realistically actually be able to afford. This would also be useful for people who want to test out damage values with certain weapons and whatnot, without having to use a private server. Also, clan/mentor/w.e BP will not be active while inside Valor Arena preventing weird bp differences.

After designing your Valor Arena character you will be teleported to the Valor Arena. Your name will still appear above your head as the same character you singed up with, but you will suddenly be the character that you designed!

As soon as you leave the Valor arena, disconnect, or whatever, all of the gear you created will disappear, and your character level and reborn will be reset to how it was prior to entering the arena.

THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO REWARDS FROM VALOR ARENA. No honor points, no anything. Arena is 100% for testing builds and having fun.

Each person will have the option to "Save" one build (set of gear, char level, ect) for valor arena. When talking to the npc they can opt to have their saved build automatically loaded so that they do not have to create one each time. VIP's can have more than one build saved at a time for extra convenience. VIP1 = 2 builds, VIP2 = 3, ect.

I am thinking the valor arena should be larger than normal arena, since it can contain multiple people at the same time (similar to when people used to fight in jail), so perhaps it could be about the size of the Promotion Center.

So, what do you guys think? I know I have to include a poll but honestly I'd prefer this to be more about discussion of how I can change anything you don't like about the suggestion than a "SUCKZZZ AZZZ BAAAWWHHH" and "ROCKZZZ SO HARDZZZ OMGZZZ" thread. So please, discuss.

Changes after the fact are in purple. woohoooo!

I was also thinking that despite the fact you don't actually gain anything from this; and that it might actually cause sales because people will be able to test what they want to achieve prior to making it, causing them to desire buying dbs to make the real thing... It may still be seen as doing something beneficial for people who don't buy dbs, hurting TQ.

So, I was thinking that perhaps Valor Arena could be a VIP only function completely, requiring VIP1 to enter? I won't include it in the actual suggestion but it's something to think about.

Well the you have good intentions there but its not posible and not acceptable.
People play this for pvp and to talk to friends. So you are saying they can have any kind of char they desire and can go to pvp without spending time and money to build real char? Why going somwhere, doing something while all you need is some silver and you can have it all.
I think people would buy a LOT less DBs then
And this is TQ afterall. When was the last time TQ created something just for fun, with no rewards and with no advantage for DB buyers?

this would be a place, where everyone would be maxed out, have a nin/war/x, be able to fog, or do anything...

it would be asif everyone had a lvl 1 non-rb without any gears on >_>

but the diference is, people can try their favorite build, see how good they are when gears are completely out of the picture..
and more...

This idea is dumb because thats is why private servers exist. Its only the moron people that cant figure out how to do so. In any case having such a feature would take the point of playing at all. For you see if you just use this at the certain time of day you can fight and all that crap without the major wallet buster. it would eventually get boring and they would have only spent a couple of dbs or some silver.

Private servers are illegal. They violate copyright laws as well as TQ's TOS. They also are crappy and always offline.

Saying that's what private servers are for is like saying that leveling is stupid, because that's what bots are for.

Besides, games like Guild Wars have this and people still play them a lot, so what's your point again?

i selected those times on purpouse, with both the US and EU timed servers, this will allow 18 timezones to join without having to adjust their..

the other 6 only have to adjust slightly in order to join

[and having it open the whole time aint a good idea]

despite people getting tired of the JUST maxed out no-loss fighting, some might not - for those this limit must exist


PS: another thing, this place should be closed on saturday&sunday!
