Now that I feel confident in my abilities as a Ryzom player I have been hanging out in the arena. I engage other players in PvP combat there. It is a lot of fun to measure my skills against everyone else's. I love to start challenges and then duke it out to see who the better warrior is. I have really improved my attacking skills via this method as well. Though you do not gain experience you certainly learn the element of surprise and you can really do a number on other players by using your increase damage attack skill. I am having a ton of fun!
