PVP Mechanics
Player vs player combat exists in the game, though its become obsolete. You'll get sanctioned with pretty heavy penalties when you kill other players. Because of this, not many people participate in open PVP combat anymore. Furthermore, there is a 3 kill limit when killing other players. Meaning, after killing three players you will no longer be able to kill any other players or monsters! You'll be forced to go to Vulcanus, or wait in a safe-zone until your PK Status wares off! With all that said, there is still fun and active pvp combat within mini-games like Castle Seige or Chaos Castle!
