Player vs. Player combat takes the form of Realm versus Realm, a term which DAoC invented. RvR is restricted to the zone New Frontiers where action ranges from massive battles to one vs one fights. Players are awarded realm points for each enemy realm player they kill. After gaining a certain amount of realm points, you gain a Realm Rank. While gaining Realm Ranks, you gain Realm Ability Points, one for each rank you gain. You are able to purchase with your realm abilities points certain skills unique to your class. Participating in RvR combat is strictly voluntary in DAoC and free-for-all PvP only exists on a dedicated server.
