Is the game
A: While there are servers for PvP combat anywhere within the game, for the PvE (Player versus Environment) servers, PvP will be available only in the Border Kingdom, Siege play (in the Border Kingdom and defending and attacking world cities), arenas and PvP mini-games. You can also choose to not participate in PvP at all if that’s your preference.
Q: Do PvP encounters also use the Real Combat mechanics?
A: Yes. Although there may be certain limitations to prevent exploits.
Q: Are there any penalties for killing someone much weaker in PvP combat?
A: On the PvP servers, yes. There are four tiers of levels. 1-20; 20-40; 40-60 and 60-80. If you kill someone a certain level lower than you, you will build up murder points and go from being labeled one of three things. Innocent---Criminal---Murderer.
Q: What are battlekeeps?
A: Players can build battlekeeps in the Border Kingdom. These are structures that are owned by their guild. Since there are only a few places battlekeeps can be built, other guilds may want to take them away from their owner or destroy them entirely.
Q: Can other guilds attack a keep or tower when no one is online to defend it?
A: There is a vulnerability window that is set to determine when the attacking guild can attack. They first have to set up a war tent outside the targeted keep, to warn the defending party that they plan to attack. This gives the defending party time to ensure they have enough people available to defend the structure.
Q: What are the rewards for PvP combat?
A: There is a PvP ranking system. There is also PvP equipment. There are a total of 10 PvP levels, which are separate from adventuring levels. You can also gain access to a battlekeep in the PvP-only Border Kingdoms.
Q: How do you progress in PvP?
A: There are currently 10 PvP levels set to go in with Update #3. As you kill other players, you gain PvP experience. When you get killed in a PvP battle, you can lose some of this experience. With each level you will gain the ability to wear certain PvP gear.
