Arena of Solare

The Arena of Solare is 3 vs 3 match-type PvP content that you can enjoy without having to worry about differences in gear specs. 
You can compete in Ranked or Practice matches. 


Ranked Mode

In Ranked Mode, your overall ranking points will increase on wins, and decrease on losses.  
During your fights, you will earn “Seal of Solare" which can be used to unlock new gear, crystals and other items available in Arena of Solare.  
Ranked Matches can only be entered during specific windows as highlighted above.  
* In ranked, a team composed of three of the same class is not possible.  
Practice Mode

 For those wishing to just practice their skills, the Practice Mode is the Arena of Solare without the added pressure of ranking points. Although you will not gain “Seals of Solare” for a win in Practice Mode, you also will not lose anything in case your team cannot overcome the odds.  
During practice mode, you will also be able to see your opponents defense options (Super Armor, Forward guard etc) displayed above their heads. You can also now create parties of 2 or 3 other Adventurers and jump into the action of Arena of Solare together during practice mode.  
* In practice mode, a team composed of three of the same class is possible.

- All party members must be on the same server in order for the party leader to start the match making process.
