  • When inside the arena, challengers other than your self will appear as randomly assigned numbers that mixed depending on who is look at whom. This prevents players from
    • Example: You look at two characters and see Challenger A and Challenger B. In the view of the person playing Challenger A, however, you appear to be Challenger A.
  • Agathions are unsummoned and cannot be summoned within the arena.
  • Fireworks, Large Fireworks, Mystery Potions, Facelift Potions, Due Potions, Hair Style Potions, Fisherman’s Potions, and Caravaner’s Remedy items can no longer be used in the arena.

  • Visual effects from Hero characters, Hero weapon effects, Ceremony of Chaos winner characters, and Seed Talismans no longer appear when in the arena.
  • When inside arena, the new Energy of Chaos buff disguises characters’ equipped head accessories and cloaks to look identical. This effect also applies to characters that do not have a cloak or head accessory equipped; if not equipped with any, the buff will give your character the appearance of having some equipped anyways.
