Based on the number and depth of balance changes to skills in this update, certain characters will be provided a â€œrespec tokenâ€ that allows them to reassign their skill points. This token is automatically placed in the characterâ€™s inventory and can be used at any time.
All Evokers and Guardians will receive respec tokens, as will all characters in Subscription Member accounts.
A Dueling Arena has been built for those who wish to test their mettle against each other. When challenging another character to a duel, the invitation dialogue indicates that the duel will take place in the Arena. When the duel is accepted, both characters are instantly transported there.
When both characters have loaded into the Arena, a countdown begins. During the countdown, characters can move, but they cannot use skills, activate items, cast spells, or attack their opponent. After a duel has been won, the defeated character is reset, as is their opponent and a new countdown clock begins. Players can leave the Dueling Arena by activating their Recall device.
Players can still duel in other areas by joining the same party and activating their /pvp flag as before.
