Easy access to PvP for new players

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

New players can duel or get a taste of PvP by fighting at popular areas like Sausans etc, but what about Red Battlefield and Arena? They're an instanced part of the game, so I see no reason why there wouldn't be an easy way for new players to participate.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I'd imagine it's a common concern for new players looking to PvP in this game. I thought it'd be worth talking about and it'd be cool to know if Pearl Abyss has any plans related to this in the future.

Currently there is no way for a new player to try out Red Battlefield or Arena (even though Arena isn't released on NA yet) without being at the top levels and gear scores. At least not on a balanced level...

Red Battlefield has a "limited" mode, but the problem with this is that people have to worry about taking off and putting on gear specifically set up for it, on top of a level cap.

I believe it could be set up differently to allow anyone to play it. Many ways are possible, but for example I think they could set your level to 56 in limited battlefield. Gear makes a big difference, so they'd also need to have a gear template where everyone has similar ap/dp and the gear you have on has no effect. Lastly, they could unlock all skill points while instanced. This way, anyone new to the game would be able to get a taste of PvP.

I know that equal levels, ap/dp, and skill points won't make it completely balanced, but it will at least give everyone the chance to participate in some PvP whenever they choose.

Gear and level are extremely important for PvP, which is completely fine for node wars/world pvp etc. Players should be able to take advantage of what they've earned and that shouldn't change, but I don't agree with the current setup for Red Battlefield and Arenas.

Just my 2 cents on the matter, any word about what they're doing in regards to access to PvP for new players would be great.
