It looks like Legends of Aria is once again changing how it’s handling PvP, as outlined in a new forum post.
In short, changes will be coming first to the experimental server with the following changes:
- Guard Protected areas are limited exclusively to Towns and Cities.
- Long and short term murder counts are being added.
- The criminal flag is being added.
- Severe risks for player killers are being deployed.
- New skills: Stealing & Snooping.
The reasons for this involve the team wanting to ensure a healthy population for the game to succeed, in addition to making the game more accessible. Additionally, Point Release 8 is set to include Martial Abilities, a Macro system, and an overhaul to the crafting orders. New content is also in the works, but will be shared in due time.
