Official Joust Help Guide
The Joust Arena

Goal of the game
Goal is to score 3 points. Both players hit each other at the same time, making draws very possible. If a de-horse and a 3rd point occurs at the same time, the match is a draw.

Training points
Training points are awarded based on your level. You cannot get more training points than your level allows.

Training areas
Below is list of the areas you can improve as well as the effects that occur more often with point investment.

• De-Horse (very low odds / point)
o Instant Win
• Aim for head (low odds / point)
o 1 point, 25% chance of dehorse
• Aim for body (moderate odds / point)
o 1 point
• Aim for legs (high odds / point)
o 50% chance of 1 point (if the judge sees it)
• Resist Chance (High odds / point)
o Hit is reduced 1 level (a de-horse becomes a head strike, leg hit is not seen by the Judge 100% chance.)

Horse improvement points
Horse improvement points are bought with GC, the amount required increases with each additional purchase. They can be spent exactly like training points, but in the horse categories.

Horse training areas:
• Improve Stirrups
o Chance to resist De-Horse
• Improve Faceguards
o Chance to resist Head hit
• Improve Hooves
o Grants a low chance of a first strike
• Improve Diet
o Grants a chance to reduce the power of any attack by 1 level, except with leg hits. (a de-horse becomes a head strike, etc.)
• Improved coat of arms
o Improves confidence bonus slightly.

Confidence bonus/points:
Improves during each battle up to 20 extra training points, allows a bonus to all chances to hit based challenges won. Confidence points work identically to training points.

Please note that when you lose confidence you will be unable to start new battles until you remove the lost confidence points.

Actions:
Each player gets to pick an action for each “charge” towards their enemy.

These are:
Attack Normally (No bonus, no penalty)
Fight offensively (10% bonus to hit and be hit)
Fight defensively (10% reduction to hit and be hit)
Fight recklessly (+20% hit against an offensive/normal attacker, -20% against a defensive)
Fight methodically (+20% hit against an defensive/normal attacker, -20% against a offensive)

do training points accrue daily, weekly or when you level up. same question regarding jousting. do they accrue daily, weekly, or again when the noble levels up?

Training points are based on level I believe. (30+noblemen rank*2)
Jousting points are refilled once a week on Fridays I believe.

That's correct Marka, thank you,

Jousts are now added every weekday (Monday - Friday) at 00:00 game time. The amount is 1/5th of your Weekly Jousts, so over a week you get all your Jousts.

Best Wishes,
-Ben

I don't think the nobility points were ever explained. I know you only get them in you make the challenge, but how do they determin how many you get? Is it the same as if you won a regular battle?

Some of my observations

The challenger only gets NP's if they win.
The amount gained depends on the level of those challenged.

So if you are challenged and win, all you gain is confidence 1 pt or 2.

If you challenge and its declined or rejected or time for replying elapses, then you face a Squire.
You will gain a set amount of NP if you win.
Edlyn Squire 270 NP
Oleda Squire 270 NP
Iorwerth Squire 792 NP
Udele 912 NP

As a side note.
I have had hit leg chance at over 100%, however I lost more than I won as so many hits were missed.

Squires...
Are the selection of squire opponents based on the difficulty of the noble you challenged , or perhaps his lvl vis a vis your level , or is it random? At my level it seems most people do not have much interest in jousting (surprisingly since it is free np when you win!) and I am considering challenging higher level players even though they will according have more training pt bonuses if the np payoff for the higher level squires on ignored challenges is better than the los of confidence pts from those nobles that do joust and have applied more horse pts (gc) and training pts due to level advantage ^^

2 hits in a row
Hi, how it comes some players hit twice at the same round? What should be improved to get that?

L©- tlr1101 (27895) charges Methodically!
Basil (29101) charges Recklessly!
Methodical versus Reckless: No change to hit chances
L©- tlr1101 (27895)'s Dehorse hit attempt was reduced by Basil (29101)'s Resistance
L©- tlr1101 (27895)'s head hit knocked Basil (29101) off his horse!
Basil (29101) misses completely...
Score is D-0
L©- tlr1101 (27895) has won!
I decide who will live and who will die!

No, what happened there is it WOULD have been a de-horse, but I assume you leveled up your diet, so it reduced it down to a head-hit. So, it tells you that it would have been a de-horse, but it was reduced, and then tells you that it was a head-hit.

It is one attack, it just gives two lines of dialogue because of how it played out. Or, that is how I'm understanding it.

Also, what exactly does "lunging early" do? Does it just make it so you attack first or does it give a bonus to you? If it just makes you attack first, it is kind of pointless, isn't it? Since two people can de-horse each other at the same time anyways.

Yes, you've reached the limit.
For higher confidence points you'll have to get pack points to buy them.

Do it. I challenge people triple my rank and win often... and the rewards are great. Some higher ranks may even take confidence points off to give u more of a chance... depends. haha
