Black Desert is constantly adapting to find new ways to present all forms of content to players, ranging from a more casual PvE experience to intense PvP. One of the main stays to learning developing tactics many players are familiar with is "Dueling". While not present in it's more traditional form as you would see in other MMO's, there is a system present where players may practice PvP with out consequence.
These areas are designated as "Arenas" (usually located right outside of main cities) where players may PvP any other opponent who steps into the combat area. This presents players with a handful of helpful features:
- No Death Penalty
- No Karma Penalty
- Instant resurrection where you died at
- May engage as many opponents as you desire
- Stage small scale pvp practice battles
