The Norn Fighting Tournament is a minigame introduced in Eye of the North. It involves facing varoius oppponents by yourself in an arena. To access the tournament, speak to Magni the Bison and Gellir Frostshield in Gunnar's Hold.

Purpose

Obviously, the key is to have a good solo build. This guide will outline the skills and tactics needed to beat the opponents you will face in the Norn Fighting Tournament.

Tactics

  • Your build must have:
    • Enough offense to win the fight (note that the enemies do not need to be completely killed, but simply reduced to about 10% of their HP)
      • This can be accomplished through direct damage or health degeneration.
    • Enough defense to survive the damage dealt to you by the enemies
      • This includes skills to block attacks, running skills to kite, and healing.

The type of builds that work are entirely self-sufficient, and include builds originally designed to gank in GvGs and solo farming builds.

Attribute Selection

Note that the Paragon primary attribute Leadership is actually still useful in the Tournament, even though it is a solo battle. This is because the spectators watching you fight count as allies.

Skill Selection

Warriors

A warrior solo build involving skills like Riposte to cause damage while defending yourself.

Degeneration
By keeping constant degeneration on your opponent, most enemies will be defeated quite quickly.
Interrupts
Direct Damage
Spam high-damage, low recharge attacks in combination with preparations to quickly damage your opponent.
Traps

Defense

Monk

A 55 solo monk build with Spoil Victor can actually work quite well, although some enemies do have enchantment removal.

Ritualist

Ritualist binding rituals can actually be used to win the tournament very easily. By placing spirits in the doorway of the Arena, where the enemy will not attack you, and then using longbow (or similar range weapon) with luring him/her in, it is possible to beat all the opponents extremely easily (with the possible exception of Razah--who uses a similar strategy--but even he can be exploited if you understand the inherent flaws of basic spirits' mechanics). Beware Gwen's Spiritual Pain.
