Player vs Player combat is a major part of Scarlet Blade and we’ll now cover it.
There are 4 places where PvP takes place. Caergate, Janus, Turnpike and Viledon. I’ll get to them in a second.
When Royal Guard (RG) and Free Knights (FK) are in the same board, it’s considered a disputed zone and both Mechs and Cybersuits are allowed. I will get into Cybersuits in a second.
During PvP both sides are able to kill the opposing side, and as a reward for each kill the winner receives ‘rank points’ and a ‘dog tag’ (if they chose to pick it up). Rank Points are important because they allow you to get your ultimate and earrings. Dog Tags are a major item because you trade them into the ‘Dog Tag Officer’ in Caer (or viledon) to receive medals. In Caer they are silver, in Vile they’re gold.
Now, you receive those Dog Tags for killing enemy Arkana in all four of the locations I mentioned earlier. Each level has a % chance of being turned into medals. 4 level 29 dog tags have a 100% chance of making a medal. $ of 28 has a 92 of 96% chance and it goes down with the level. Single tags have a low success rate.
There is a way to check your rank…it’s under C for your character. On the right will be a listing of attack, etc. Click on the ranking tag at the top and it’ll show a screen like this.
This will allow you to know if you have enough points for your ulti or earrings.
Each class has an ‘ultimate’ skill that you can buy after getting 30 silver medals and 30K rank points. It costs 10 G but is worth every dime. The ultimate dishes out tremendous damage to your opponent. However, it takes 1.5 seconds to build up and takes 15 minutes to cool down. It’s a great tool if you need to desperately get out of a battle or need to beat someone at base or even if you just want to be mean and kill someone. It’s up to you decide when you want to use it.
Earrings are scout, veteran or seer. Veteran are the ones better for combat. It costs 15k RP, 10 G and 10 medals to get each pair and you need two. They’re worth the effort.
Once your reach level 17, you receive your mech. It is a large mechanical fighting tool that your arkana has. They are tied to each class, meaning you can’t trade the Medic’s Kali for a Sentinel’s Kumari.
Here are the images of them:
Kumari is made specifically for the Sentinel. It has a quick firing gun and is shorter to accommodate her smaller side. It has a stun skill where the left hand scoops up metal or rocks and slams it into the enemy’s face. Inner sight, when engaged before entering the mech, speeds up it movements. Otherwise it’s a bit slow to an extent.
Having a medic, I think this is the slowest of the six mechs, but it has its plusses. It has the ability to use its gun to keep the medic, or her teammates alive. The best skill it has is the ability to cast a ‘healing circle,’ which is a large, glowing area when the medic, and party members, can fight from and keep their HP steady. Other than that, it has the weakest offensive punch of them all.
Athena get around with the help of thrusters, but she has tremendous offensive punch. Wielding a laser whip, it chews through opponents, making it one nice weapon. If you’re a whipper, this is your best friend in PvP or battlegrounds.
Designed to take a shitload of abuse. Nothing more I can say than that. It’s the truth.
Takes Advantage of the Punisher’s abilities and amplifies them. Ishtar has a long range weapon and the ability to fire several smaller weapons from its shoulders. If you’re a Sent or SW unlucky enough to be close to her when she fires, it can be a fatal encounter.
Eponia (Shadow Walker)
Epona takes advantage of the Shadow Walker’s speed. It’s the only mech 4-legged, meaning that running from a SW’s mech is difficult. It also has a charge (similar to secret charge) and an attack where both arms are using in an alternating constant attack. Epona also has a skill that allows the SW to fire at a target from a distance away. If a Shadow Walker is meched up and hunting you, running won’t help most times.
Is a metallic suit that covers an arkana from head to toe. It’s only useable in Janus/Turnpike/Caergate/Viledon. It increases your attack, defense, sp and hp. This is what they look like.
They look the same no matter what class.
