Basic Information

  • Jousting is a medieval sport which involves two opponents mounted on steeds to rush at each other, striking with lances as the competitors attempt to knock each other off their horses.
  • You can start a jousting match at Tara. Talk to Lileas at the jousting arena to start a match.
  • You must be partied with the player you plan to joust against.
    • The partymate must be in the area (on the raised area where Lileas is).
    • The party leader controls when the match will start by talking to Lileas; the partymate will not get a confirmation message.
  • You may also joust against an NPC (Lota, Melor, Gornevez and Adair) for a small fee of 50 gold.
  • Your jousting record is recorded in the character window under the rebirth, etc. tab. It keeps track of your wins, loses and jousting points. Practice matches do not count in your record; only preliminary and tournament matches will count.
  • You may joust while doing Commerce, however you will auto-fail once you enter the arena, and will be glitched inside. This can be fixed by changing channels or relogging.

System

The effectiveness rules.
  • You and your jousting partner will start with a full bar of health. The game will consists of multiple runs, untill someone is knocked down.
    • Jousting health is not player HP and cannot be adjusted by any means.
  • Jousting uses a sort of rock-paper-scissors system to determine who wins the run. The picture to the right shows the effectiveness of one letter vs. another (the sword points to what the letter is effective against). In effect, you must correctly guess which button your opponent will use, so that your attack will be most effective.
    • A penetrates W and D.
    • W penetrates D.
    • W and S penetrate each other.
    • D penetrates S.
    • S penetrates A.
  • Whoever cleanly loses the run will take some health damage. The winner will be unhurt.
  • A tie occurs when both players choose the same key. It results in slightly less of the original damage to both players.
  • Certain attacks have certain effectiveness.
    • A is the weakest attack but it has the most effective chance of dealing damage.
    • W and S do moderate damage but have good chances of dealing hits.
      • S deals slightly more damage than W.
    • D is the strongest attack but is also the most vulnerable.
  • Characters will perform additional damage during jousts if they pull off their race-specific combination. This is shown when the screen flashes, similar to scoring a Critical Hit.
    • Human: [A → W]
    • Elf: [Tie → A] The exception is if the jousters both use the "A" attack. Since a particular attack can not be used consecutively, it is therefore impossible to prepare the elven combination from a tied-A.
    • Giant: [W → S]
      • More damage is dealt with the second attack, regardless of the success of the first attack.
  • After a run, you will not be able to use the same key again in a row.
  • If you choose no action in the time limit, your key will be randomly chosen.
    • If both players were to run out of health from a mutually damaging set of attacks, instead of the match resulting as a draw, it will randomly select who the winner is. That person will lose no health while the other still does.
      • The "tie breaking" algorithm is still engaged regardless of the two jousters comparative health, strength of final attack, or the sum of these.
  • When it is time for you to enter your command, any open chat line will automatically close to prevent you from accidentally typing.
  • You can choose to enter commands using just the mouse. The four letters arranged in a plus-sign shape in the upper-left corner are actually active buttons and can be clicked on. It is recommended that you enter your commands using the mouse, and not the keyboard, as it is less likely to result in an accidental computer decided choice of action.

Damage

Overview

  • Calculation of damage occurs in several stages:
    • First, the base damage of each choice is determined.
    • Second, if both jousters have chosen the same maneuver then the damage of each is halved.
    • Third, variable damage is applied.
    • Fourth, any racial combination bonus is applied.
    • Finally, if one jouster is a clear loser of the choices then their potential inflicted damage is not applied to their opponent, such as in the case of, say, S and A, where the damage of A is not applied to the player who chose S.

Base Damage

  • The base damages for each of the hits are as follows:
    • A hits for 20% regardless of whether it hits W or D.
    • D hits for 50%.
    • S hits for 40%.
    • W hits for 30%.

Adjusted Damage Due to Ties

  • In the case where the jousters both chose either: A, D, S, or W, then the base damage is shared equally. In other words the base damage for each is halved.

Variable Damage

  • Once the adjusted base damage has been determined, then variable damage is applied. The range for the variable damage is ± (2% + 10% of the adjusted damage).

Racial Combination Bonus Damage

  • After variable damage is determined then any applicable racial combination bonuses are applied. This means that racial combination bonus damage does not play a role in calculating variable damage.
  • The racial combination bonus damage regardless of race is 20%.
  • The racial combination bonus is not restricted to player characters. The NPC's available, at the jousting arena, also have access to their appropriate racial combination bonus damage.

Tournament

  • Jousting Preliminaries and Finals will be held during certain times of the day.
    • Players must register by talking to Lileas 30 minutes before the tournament starts.
    • If there are an odd number of participants, the last participant will joust against an NPC jouster.
    • There is maximum of 64 players who can participate. Tournaments work on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • After registering, a horse icon will appear at the top of the player's screen, next to the F1~F12 skill hotkeys.
    • Before the tournament starts, clicking it tells how many minutes remain until the tournament starts, as well as the option to cancel registration.
    • After the tournament starts, it shows how many rounds have occurred and how many participants remain.
  • During the tournament, players will receive a window prompt when they are selected to joust. The prompt will only stay for 20 seconds. If the player clicks "no" then they will be removed from the tournament. If they click "yes" or allow the time to expire, then they will continue on in the tournament. So you will remain registered in the tournament even if you do not acknowledge the the prompt.
    • If one enters a cutscene during this time, such as transforming or eating high quality food, the player will automatically refuse their match.
  • Successfully defeating an opponent in either tournament:
  • Participating in the tournament, regardless of whether the player wins or loses, rewards Jousting Points, which can be turned into Lileas for a variety of items.
  • Jousting tournament victories, losses, and points are kept track in the player's character window, under the "additional info" tab.

If they do so during the tournament then they forfeit it entirely
  • At least 8 participants are required to begin the tournament; if there are insufficient participants, the tournament will not be held.
  • Unlike the preliminaries, the final tournament is held in a tournament bracket style, where players joust to advance to the next round until only one player remains.
    • The winner of the match will continue onward the tournament while the loser is removed from the tournament.
