Although Cecil has the most extensive knowledge of the Arena, having worked there a considerable amount of time himself, he is currently busy with the preparations of the upcoming tournament. As such, he has delegated the duty of answering anybody's questions to me, and I am happy to oblige and share my knowledge as best I can.
If you have any questions about Arena mechanics, how certain abilities work, gambits, or just want some strategic advice, please post it here and I will do my best to answer them.
OOC: If it's containing a bit of sensitive character setup/gambits that you don't want revealed, PM me and try to explain your question with the minimum information needed to answer your question, so as to keep your information hidden as much as possible. However, if it's a general question, post it here - it might be helpful to others!
The Arena Character Builder excel file has been updated to reflect the changes to the Arena. It can be downloaded here:
Edit: The above link has now been updated to also include automatic code string creation which can be copy/pasted directly in Bob's preferred format, thus saving you more time and effort!
Edit 2: The additional AP and BP columns now correctly deduct 25 exp instead of 50 per point. You'll have to redownload the file to correct this however. Sorry for the inconvenience!
