A PvP category has been added to the Actions & Traits interface which lists all PvP actions learned. Highlighting the checkbox next to a desired skill will add the action to the list at the bottom of the Actions & Traits interface. Once an action has been added to the list, it can be dragged to your hotbar for use in PvP.

PvP Actions and Traits 2.1 img3.png

  • Players may equip up to 10 PvP actions at any given time.
  • The ◆ symbol displayed below PvP action names represents their enhancement status.

Morale

All gear obtained from the Wolves' Den will include a PvP-exclusive attribute known as morale. Morale comes into play only in level 50 matches, where it replaces physical and magical defense in influencing the damage you receive. Furthermore, morale also affects the amount of damage dealt to other players.

PvP Profile

PvP Profile 2.1 img1.png

The following information can be viewed under PvP Profile:

  • PvP PvP EXP: Earned by fighting in PvP.
  • PVP Rank: Raised by accumulating PvP PvP EXP.
  • Action Points (AP): Received upon raising your PvP Rank. Used to learn PvP-exclusive actions and traits.

Victory Requirements

Matches will end when all members of an opposing team have been KO'd. In the event that neither team is defeated within the allotted time, the match will end in a draw.

Rewards

Fighting in PvP will garner players a special type of currency known as Wolf Mark Wolf Marks, which can be exchanged for gear and materia that are tuned for PvP. The amount awarded is commensurate to performance.

  • PvP PvP EXP and Wolf Mark Wolf Marks are awarded even in the event of a draw or defeat.

PvP Rank

As players participate in matches in the Wolves' Den, they will earn PvP PvP EXP and rise in PvP rank. Each time you rank up, you will be granted action points. Certain ranks are also accompanied with a title.

  • PvP titles differ depending on your Grand Company. Additional titles will be added in future updates.

As with PvP actions, your PvP rank, PvP PvP EXP, and AP are recognized only by the Grand Company through which you earned them; transferring your allegiance means you will have to start over. However, rest assured they will be reinstated to you upon rejoining your former Grand Company.
