This page lists player-vs-player changes relative to the vanilla game. All changes that affect PvP combat apply to PvP arenas only unless otherwise noted.

General Changes

  • New dueling arenas accessible via items which can be purchased from Akara
    • Spectator mode can be toggled by typing .spec or .spectate within the safe zone of an arena
    • After dying in these arenas, characters revive without needing to retrieve their corpse, and no gold is dropped
Note: Hardcore characters revive in the same way - HC dueling can be done inside PvP arenas without risking characters, but character death is still permanent everywhere else
  • Maximum resistances are capped based on the difficulty: 75% (Normal), 80% (Nightmare), 85% (Hell)
  • Open Wounds is limited based on the difficulty - it deals 10%/8%/6% of its damage in Normal/Nightmare/Hell
  • Stuns in PvP can no longer be reapplied to players who are already stunned, and attacks/hits/spells against stunned players will reduce the stun duration by 2 frames each
  • Regenerating charges (e.g. Blink on Enigma) regenerate 200% faster
  • Slow, Knockback (from items), Absorb, Attackers Take Damage, Life Leech, and Melee Splash are disabled
  • Life replenish is capped at +30
  • Vendors within PvP Arenas sell Dueling Mana Potions (other potions cannot be used there)

Skill Differences

Damage Multipliers

Skills deal 16%/12%/6% (1/6th, 1/8th, 1/16th) of their damage against other players and their minions in Normal/Nightmare/Hell difficulty. They deal 100% of those amounts except for the following skills which have other multipliers:
