    The Virtue League is Shroud of the Avatar's longest running weekly PVP event held every Saturday at 4pm NBT (server time) with multiple tiers for fighters ranging from novice to expert. Each Virtue League season runs for a duration of 3 months where fighters duke it out for fortune, glory, and the title of “Champion of Virtue”. The Virtue League battle arena is located in the EVL guild capital city of Virtue Oasis, in the SW corner of the Hidden Vale (map).

    Season 9: Rise of the Obsidian’s begins on March 31st, 2018 & will feature a revamped Virtue Ranking system based on fighter feedback. Players will be seeded into a Tier based on past performance and stats. The approved artifacts and potions are in the official rule book which can be picked up at the arena. Pets, summons, and cast buffs are allowed after fight begins. Refer rules questions to @Jade in game!

    In-game Rule Book for Season 9 (Compliments of @Jade):

    Welcome to Season 9 of the Virtue League

    The Virtue League is a 1 vs 1 PvP tournament. It is hosted by Every Virtue is Lasting (EVL). Matches are fought in Virtue Oasis. Virtue Oasis is located southwest of Owl's Head on the coast. The fights are held on Saturdays. Registration is at 1600 hrs CST and fights begin at 1630 hrs CST.

    Stealthing in the stands is not allowed. Come to Virtue Oasis in PvP mode at your own risk.

    Employees of Portalarium are welcome to compete in each group, however, will not be eligible for season end prizes.

    Contestants are divided into four separate fight groups. Each group fights in a double-elimination tournament recorded on Challonge.

    Players must dismiss their pets and buffs (except for Obsidian potions, food buffs, and devotional blessings) before each fight.

    Players must "duel" each other (make sure your "Auto-Decline Duels" is switched off under the Multiplayer tab in the Options menu) and must wait in the designated place until the countdown is over before moving or going into combat.

    Rankings are established using a system similar to the tennis rankings modified for the double-elimination brackets. Points will be awarded based on how far a player advances in a given tournament. Only the top eight scores for the season will count towards a player's final standing for the season. Standings can be located at evlguild.com, under the Virtue League Header.

    Groups:

    Group A: Level 100 and above
    Group B: Level 86 to 99
    Group C: 70 to 85
    Group D: Under level 70

    NOTE: Groups B & C & D must provide @Lao Tzu a screen shot that verifies your level the first time you fight.

    Once you start a season in one group you may remain there for the remainder of the season even if you level out of it.

    These tournaments are supported by generous end-of-the-season prizes. These prizes are provided by our sponsors. We thank all those that support the Virtue League. This seasons supporters are:

    1. House Serenite Of Grunvald - Be sure to check out their role playing town of Serenite. Located just Northeast of Desolis along the coast.

    2. Antrax's Army - Join the Top PVP Guild in SotA! Visit their market town New Heaven, located east to Central Brittany. You can find free rooms, vendors, expert crafting stations and PvP training!

    3. Moongate Travelers - Visit Rift's End, home of Evil Eye Tavern and the Blackgate Dojo! You never have to walk these lands alone!

    4. Havoc - Havoc, The Community of Awesome!

    5. Organized Chaos - Be sure to visit Organized Chaos and their vendors in Verat Chaos and other cities around Novia!

    6. Jade Empire - Featuring the town of Jade Valley, just outside Elysium mines, with 16 grouped vendors for a convenient shopping experience.

    7. Guild Arcadia - We who dare, win, and we gain strength in unity.

    8. Virtue Oasis Vendor Mall - Located SW of Owls Head along the coast. Categorized vendors for easy shopping!

    NOTE: Due to the complexity of the artifact and questing system we will be allowing all artifacts and questable items in the arena. Prohibited are: any items associated with a pledge and all potions (except for poison weapons, cure poison, and smelling salts.)(Also, obsidian potions are allowed) For those that are wondering, we must eliminate potions as they would create terminally long fights otherwise. Blessing and food buffs are allowed before the fight starts.

    There is no entry fee. Prizes are awarded each week to the winner of each group. They will receive 10 recall & 10 teleport scrolls. Thanks to the generous support of Ashmaul from EVL, we will be giving 5 recall and 5 teleport scrolls to each 2nd place finisher as well!

    To be eligible for prizes at the end of the season, fighters must have registered 21 fights and have fought in the last 4 weeks of the season. If you are in a group with no competitors you will receive a weekly award of 2 wins and 0 losses.

    NOTE: On a trial basis, we will allow the victor to loot the loser's body, retain the bone left behind and RETURN all other belongings to the owner. Should we have individuals that abuse this procedure we will either discontinue the practice or ban them from the competition.

    Prize Structure

    End of the season awards

    Group A

    1st Place -- $35 Store Credit
    2nd Place -- $25 Store Credit

    Time Limits

    Each fight is limited to 6 minutes. If both contestants are still standing at the end of 6 minutes we will start a new round. Both fighters must disrobe and the only allow items are weapons and shields. This is a fight to the death unless the judges feel they must call the fight and render a judgement voted on by three officials.
