Along with the Tideborn expansion, the Tournament Agent NPC was introduced into the game. This NPC can be found in several locations in major cities. There's one by the teleporter in west Arch for example.

On Thursday nights at 8 pm server time, you can talk to this guy and enter a special instance. There seems to be only a few minutes to register for the tournament so make sure you're on time!

Registration requirements:
Flyweight (levels 40-49)
Featherweight (levels 50-59)
Lightweight (levels 60-69)
Middleweight (levels 70-79)
Heavyweight (levels 80-89)
Superheavyweight (levels 90-105)

You will also need 100,000 coins, but that isn't paid until after the qualifying round.

NOTE: For each round except the Final there are two or more identical rooms that you are dropped into randomly. You get to choose which one you go to for the qualifying round, so make sure all people in your squad go to the same one (it'll say "Tournament Registration" and "Tournament Registration 2").

==============
QUALIFYING ROUND
==============


Inside the instance, you'll be in a large room with no exits. After everyone has registered, many chests will spawn. Farm one of these to get a tournament entry pass. There are a *lot* of chests, so there's room for a large number of people to enter. Other than the Registration room, all the rooms in this instance are PK enabled.

After a few minutes, the chests will disappear and an NPC will spawn. YOU MUST PAY THIS NPC 100,000 COINS TO ENTER THE ACTUAL TOURNAMENT. You'll then be teleported into one of the four Round of 16 rooms.

==========
ROUND OF 16
==========


When you arrive here, magic angels will fully heal you. Yay magic angels.

After 5 minutes, 6 chests will spawn. Farm one.

After 5 more minutes, the NPC will spawn. Talk to it to gain

STRATEGY
========


The important thing to notice about this place is that there's not just 1 winner. Lots of people can come out with rewards, so there's no reason to PK unless there's a huge crowd. The exception is the final room, where there's an actual difference in the chests. The idea there is to not get greedy. Yes, the Gold chest is awesome, but so is the Silver. If there's a badass in the room that you can't beat in PK, let him have the Gold and just take the Silver instead. Better than risking dying and walking away with nothing from the final room.

On the other hand, since there's only 6 chests total, you will have to eliminate someone if there's more than 6 people.

Also, it appears that taking damage does *not* prevent you from farming a chest. So make sure you use a disabling status like Stun or Sleep to stop farming.

=======
REWARDS
=======


Warsoul Tags can be traded at the Tournament Agent for shards (80 for an Incomparable Amber, 180 for Incomparable Citrine, etc.), Skll book materials (Old Book Pages and Pages of Fate), materials to make Warsoul weapons, or sold for 10k each.

The Championship Scroll can be traded for a Warsoul Helmet, which is pretty decent.

==========
OTHER NOTES
==========


Do *NOT* wait more than 1 minute to talk to the NPC that advances you to the next round. You will be booted from the tournament.

Apparently sometimes the game itself will boot you out randomly. We had someone get teleported out as soon as they entered the semifinal room. No way to predict when this will happen, so just bad luck when it happens.

You *can* be killed while the magic angels are healing you. Do not assume you are safe during that time.

You can hit anyone who isn't in your squad with AOEs, even if you have faction protection on. Avoid using AOEs when there are friends nearby that aren't in squad with you.
