Proving Grounds is a non-rated sandbox arena for testing talents, skills, PvP tactics and so much more. Players are free to join and leave Proving Ground arenas as they please with no consequences, as the arenas are simply sandboxes for testing.
Proving Grounds features two identical maps. One for potion PvP, and one for talents PvP.
