PvP in Neverwinter describes any gameplay that involves Player vs Player content:
Inside closed instances:
- Companions cannot be summoned
- Players cannot get injured
Leaving Domination before the match is over is penalized and forbids leaving player to use any queue for 30 minutes.
Domination match can be left without being penalized when there are 3 or fewer players left in a team.
Open World PvP
To enter any of these locations, players have to sign a contract with one of two factions in Caer-Konig:
- Arcane Brotherhood
Contract determines a faction side in Open World PvP, remains upto 20 hours of being offline and can be broken after signed.
Characters who enter PvP area become flagged for PvP after crossing its magical barrier.
The border of the PvP area has a red transparent effect and triggers a warning when you approach.
Once a player becomes flagged, they can attack players from the opposite faction and can be attacked by them even outside of a PvP area.
Players can become unflagged by dying, changing location or entering a Campfire.
Killing players flagged in Open World PvP area can award [Scrimshaw Trophy].
