    I think the arenas are great, I love controlled environments. I've had a lot of really fun 2 v 2 and 3 v 3 fights.

    One flaw though, is that you have to show up at the arena to sign up.

    Ok, so my PvPers are always red and I have to go to arenas in fel.

    Twice now I've arranged a fight and I show up at the arena only to be ganked after I get off mount to enter the duel. A third time the match ran past 10 minutes and when we were ejected from the arena they were waiting to gank me.

    One of two things needs to happen:

    1.) There should be a trammel type ruleset that forbids pvp within the arena area, and you shouldn't be able to enter if you are aggrod (similar to the housing aggro set up). This is problematic because there are champ spawns around. There would have to be several unique rules to prevent abuse (like all cursed items drop when you enter, or you can't enter within 2 minutes of combat even if you were attacked). Number 2 is probably the best bet.

    2.) Allow me to access the arena gump from anywhere in the game (except from T2A or Dungeons, or while aggrod). Why do I have to be at the arena stone?

    I really wish they had done this something more like battlegrounds on WoW.

    Should've been:
    When you go to arena you go to a separate server and perhaps there are several arenas in a small area. Trammel type ruleset but even reds are allowed except for in the arenas themselves. People from any server could go to this area and use the arenas. No trading allowed and nothing can be dropped on the ground. It would be a place for all people from all servers to interact. Or if it were even more like WoW you would sign up for a particular type of arena match and when you got opponents and all then you would be instantly transported to the other server for the match and instantly transported back when done.

    Instead we got like 3 different arenas on each nearly dead shard and some of them even interfered with player housing. It's a good idea that could have been great.

    Stick meet Carrot.

    Character copy has a title effect on real character with shard title.

    New arena shard that copy characters can fight.

    Carrot. Title that is earned fighting copy characters on the Arena Shard. Titles are on a timer and on arena shard Ranking Board title holders shard they copied from.

    Title holders can be called out in chat on their shard to defend their title. Longer a challenger is on Arena Shard calling out title holder the faster their title timer burns off. Maybe the ranking board could do shard chat call out of their main shard. Have to be a 28 hour title burn time that it can be held.

    Range of fight style arenas with their own ranking board and titles. Even team styles and mixed template group fights. Only those that battle in an arena gain the rank to be a contender and call out the champ. Then the burn timer starts. Champ defends and wins refresh timer to 28 hours.

    Tram land outside the arenas raised ground viewing. Grid floor over arena allows viewing through but blocks targeting.

    On deck shard chat call out to teams/characters main shard 10 minutes after fight ends. 30 minute battle time allowed. Tmap Guardian reconition so fighters that win can walk through their gate exit ending battle and booting losing ghost clearing arena. After fight 10 minute on deck call has 5 minute stand till arena gate opens. Characters failing to cross gate for their fight 72 hours of no challenge board reconition. And permanent chicken title after characters name that can only be removed by being in a fight, win or lose. Chicken title characters also knocked to bottom of ranking board. Chicken titled characters failing to show while titled will no longer be reconized by challenge boards and chicken title lost.

    Champion on a ranking board holds title for an extended duration of a week or more. Any EM can go to the Arena Shard and reconize a week of holding title champion. A varried statue color with characters name and duration title held is imprinted on the trophy. Color of trophy depends on the active number of characters on the challenge board when title was lost.

    The Arena Shard could have it's own EM that would work as a fight promoter. Going on shard chats giving out a fight style arena current champion will earn a trophey in two days if not dethroned. The Arena shard EM would be a reconized name after a while when on another shard chat. Dropping the title holders main shard could goad on other shards to represent.

    Arena Shard would have its rules and on that shard the EM could block an account from showing again.

    you mean like it already was before they went live??
    i thought it was a dumb idea to put the arenas on each shard.

    they should have kept them on an arena shard, the only way on is to copy your character, you bring what you take with you but there would be npcs that GIVE consumables... that way the leader board would be the best player from any shard, not just the 3 or 4 people that actually use them on your shard.


    this shard wouldnt be a TC so you cant change your skills.

    Good ideas, and It would make it more widely used.

    I still hope that the Arenas will eventually become Xshard usable.
