LFW to see Shamanism and Magma totem. EM is also a change that we'll see how it fits.
As for Arena preparations, nothing serious tbh. Got to buy some arena water above all, and once i raise my Inscription enough to get Armor and Weapon vellums III, i'll be able to skill up my enchanting on all the remaining chars.
We are definitly going to have a hard time on arenas, specially against melee teams. I predict a gib fest, on single target, or a major AOE kill. I can do the same for single target, but my play style won't allow me to charge from 4 different positions.
My gear is weak, every class is buffed to produce a huge ammount of dmg in no time, but anyways, we gotta see what we can do :)
