Talking Do you have what it takes to be the Best of the Best? - Warriors and Magicians

We’re happy to share that planning has started for the P99 Green server’s Best of the Best event series!

This series pits players of a given class against each other in an intense 1:1 PvP Tournament and is open to players who have reached level 54 or higher.

Our first 2 events will be focused on the Warrior and Magician classes. They are scheduled to begin on 3/28 at 1PM EST in the Lake Rathe Arena.

Registration is now open and will be available through 11:59PM EST on 3/27.

Please review the rules for the event below. If you think you have what it takes, please visit the below link(s) to register!

A special thanks goes out to the P99 Green Event Committee, a multi-Guild group of players who are playing a critical role in bringing this event to life.

All classes will be given an opportunity to compete. Please keep an eye on the P99 Green sub-forum for more details on when your class will be called to compete!

Whether you join as a spectator or a combatant, we look forward to seeing you in the Arena!

The P99 Server Staff

Event Rules

Single Elimination 1 vs. 1 competition for all rounds but final round.
Final round will be 2 out of 3 matches.
Date: March 28, 2021, 1 PM EST

Spectator and General Rulings
Event Staff are considered judges and therefore restricted from being attacked. Anyone found attacking a GM or Guide may be banished from the Arena without warning.

The Arena is off limits to unauthorized PvP 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after the event. This is to ensure that the contestants and spectators are safe.

Spectators shall remain seated and not casting during the match. Any spell casting shall be considered aimed at a participant, and either harmful or helpful to someone in the match.

Anyone who casts any spells (including Bard songs) during a match can be removed from the Arena.

Spectators shall not use /shout for any reason, but use /ooc instead. This is so that those involved in the match can use /shout, and the /ooc channel can be turned off to reduce distraction to the contestants involved. Use of /shout at anytime can lead to banishment from the Arena.

Spectators shall not interfere with this event. Severe penalties are used only when directly attacking a player involved in the match, attacking a judge during the match, or healing a player involved in a match.

Event Staff may limit the amount of people in the zone to control conditions of lag or frame rate for the participants. The event shall start open seating, but may close off at any time. The Event Staff may use any sort of decision on who stays and who leaves to ensure the event is a success. This should not need to be implemented until a minimum of 150 players in the zone has been reached.

AoE Spells ARE allowed in game. This has the potential of killing off some of the younger spectators. If you are killed by one of these spells, please wait for a GM or Guide to give you a summons into the Arena.

General Combatant Rules

The top of the throne, in the throne, or behind the throne is off limits to the combatants during the matches. The four firepots are also off limits to the combatants. Use of these areas in match combat will lead to contestants being disqualified.

Starting positions are allowed anywhere that is legal (meaning not on the throne or in firepots) that is on your half of the tiles.

All participants will be debuffed before the match.

Weapons with the following spell effects attached to them will not be allowed in Best of the Best Series; Knockback, Fear, Invisibility, and Shrink.

The use of "Right Click" items is not permitted, unless specifically stated otherwise in the Class Specific Rules.

The following spell types may not be used in any of the Best of the Best Series:
  • Any form of Fear or Charm unless directed at a pet.
  • Gravity Flux or Invert Gravity
  • Any type of gate or translocation spell (Example shadow step)
  • The following item types will not be allowed in the Best of the Best Series:
  • Any type of Artifact items (example Butcher Block Hammer)
  • Any type of regeneration effect items. (Example Fungi Tunic)
  • Amulet of Necropotence

The Event Staff, due to the amount of contestants, may decide to split the combat area in half. The arena in this case will be divided making two battle areas for 2 matches to be performed at one time.

In the event that the combat exceeds 15 minutes of real time, then the Event Staff may increase the contestant’s size to reduce the relative size of the battlefield.

The owner of the account must play the character, no "Ringers" will be allowed. If caught you will be automatically disqualified, prizes will be forfeit, and banned from future Best of the Best events.

Any use of exploits or bugs will result in immediate disqualification from the event, and is a break in the rules of conduct as set forth on

Class Specific Rules - Warriors

All Armors and Weapons available to the contestant's class will be allowed. Unless it has an effect stated in General Combat rules as unusable.

“Constructive fleeing” (ie kiting, fleeing at low health) is not allowed. Warriors must face each other at all times in combat.

Class Specific Rules - Mages

Both magicians, once debuffed and resummoned shall be asked if they are ready for the match to start. Once the match starts, a timer will start of 30 seconds that the magicians are allowed to cast on themselves. During this time pet spells and any non-offensive spells will be allowed, pets will not be allowed to attack until after the 30 seconds.

The judge of the match will count down on every 5-second interval until the time is up, at that time offensive spell casting may be used. Mana used for buffs will not be restored. The offensive spells start at the 30-second mark regardless if the magician is ready for the next stage.

An explosion and a verbal statement will start the 30-second period, and also the start of the match. A single “Fault” will be allowed (Casting before the explosion), and an event warning (not an official warning) will be given to the offender. A second “Fault” per match is disqualification.

Both magicians shall stay on the tiled area at all times, you may not stand on or behind the firepots. You may not stand on or in the throne. Binding in the ring and gating to a different part of the ring is not allowed.

The 60th lvl Banishment spell has been disallowed for this event.

All items and armor available to the magician class will be allowed in this event.

No activatable items of any kind shall be used in the match. This includes any right click items.

" No activatable items of any kind shall be used in the match. This includes any right click items. "

Can mages use summoned items that they have created themselves, like mod rod?

Not allowing jousting seems like a mistake?

Most of those rules are taken word-for-word from the classic Best of the Best rules. Our interpretation of “Constructive fleeing” is kiting or fleeing from combat. Jousting is not fleeing, it’s a form of attacking.

Long story short - jousting is fine for the warrior rule set. I will add clarification above that Constructive Fleeing references kiting and fleeing.

Thanks for the great questions!
