I played there a few times only to find 99% of the match is just people running away.
As a SL 60 strength build, I couldn't keep up.
Not a fun place. Wasn't willing to level up my fave char just to get more end so I can actually hit people, either.
Also got rage mail after every single match regardless of who won for blocking. As a strength guy. Because every goddamn enemy was a mage hoping for a free win.
I see. Well, I'm generally not very competitive about this game, I have as much fun fooling around with Channeler Tridents and cross-dressing. So if anybody just wants to just fool around, I'm into that kind of stuff as well. *wink* *wink* --- *is officially Hitoshura*
I tried it once, all I found was people using the new at the time dark magic and I was midrolling and didn't know how to deal with pursuers/dark bead so I just gave up on the arena.
Nowadays dark magic spam isn't an issue for me, but I can't ever seem to find anyone at the arena any more so I don't waste my time waiting for matches when I could be at the forest/township actually playing.
