Thanks to all of the input we received, we've made some adjustments that will hopefully better balance things this year. Not all of this is new, but I'm going to lay out how the arena works at this point.

When you go through the portal into the arena, ALL outside spells are stripped, and then for native casters: Retribution effect (only) of Cloak of Shadows (712) is stripped Arcane Barrier (1720), Elemental Targeting (425), and Rapid Fire (515) are stripped

Inside the arena itself: Most spells over level 10 are now allowed Implosion (720), Elemental Targeting (425), Censure (316), Judgment (1630), Nature's Fury (635), Sleep (501), Flaming Aura (1706), Spirit Servant (240) are all blocked Hiding is allowed No demons, animal companions, or Singing Sword Song (1025) No wands or embeds

Hopefully, this will help answer some of the questions you may have, and help you to prepare for killing your friends.

Disclaimer: I've never attended this event before.

Shouldn't 1005 be on the list of disallowed spells/songs? I've never tried to use it on another players, but it's semi-ridiculous as a disabler against critters.

Can someone help me understand why 425 is restricted?

Probably because creature TD is balanced around having the spell up (so it isn't really a bonus, it's required) while player TD isn't balanced around every creature having the spell on.

Didn't see anything about society stuff. I could see symbol of sleep causing a few upsets if it's allowed.

Curious why 316's out. Possibly because it's a core circle CS disable that'll hit things in hiding?

Sorry, I'd accidentally left scrolls off of my post, but there are no scrolls, either. I edited my post to reflect that. Blocking 425 is new this year and is part of the balancing updates we're trying, along with stripping outside spells.

Spells are limited to rig the FoF for warriors.
