the empty arena /duel sorry <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> there was a vote on the forums a very long time ago and everyone voted for pvp servers over RVR type stuff. You should probabbly make a pve character to relax on in the times you are too angry to pvp. That is what I do.

Sadly, only arena and /dual invite. I think they should add some PVE and PVP zones though.

A duel with a stealthed scout is deadly, those who need range are gimped in /duel, the arena had power- and health-pickups and well.. as said: totally different then pvp here. Less fun too i.m.o. </p><p>But, agreed, it <i>is </i>a facet of 'pvp'.</p>

You should note, that the arena and /duel both use PvE rules so the actual experience of both is very different to that on a PvP server.

I actually think dueling is MORE balanced in regards to scouts, because it robs them of a surprise attack, which is the only reason people call them overpowered, whether they realize it or not.</p><p>Remove the factor of scouts getting the jump and it's a completely different ballgame though, yes <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

And their nutty high damage skills do the full pvp damage. So decapitate and the rest are pretty nasty.</p><p>Not to mention no immunities. </p>

Depends on which one you open with, tbh, and it's easily canceled with AEs

But you save the instant cast for when the duel begins. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> And yah, aes are the only way to combat stealth/invis without the skill to see it.
