Arena Basics, Tip #1

A friend of mine asked me to post tips on Arena battling. In honor of that request I'm going to disclose some interesting things that will help anyone improve at arena. I'm going to start small and work up to better and better tips as time goes on. If you do use them and they work for you let me know.

Arena Basic #1
- When battling 2 to 4 pvp -
Equip a sword or wand that is the same school as the person you're battling with and have your friend do the same. So if you are death and your friend is ice... then the ice wizard should use a death sword or wand and you should use an ice sword or wand. This allows you to remove an opponents shield with a minor strike so that your friend doesn't have to use up their blade with a minor strike.

Sierra, an experienced partner should take shields off only if they have no associated trap. However if a situation is more complex one hopes their partner will advise you on what action they are about to take if they have time. After some time in arena together you and your partner will work things out and will almost read your mind. Try to work out in advance some of the more common situations so you don't have to decide under pressure.

You aren't really supposed to even use traps in the arena anyway, unless your partner times a windstorm right before you use storm lord.

Valerian Nightbringer said...

You are allowed to use traps in arena. One thing that is allowed but not acceptable is chain stunning/dispelling.

Cheats and Crackers said...

I didn't say it wasn't allowed, what I meant was that you probably shouldn't use them, because then they shield, and you end up using the trap when you take off their shield.
