Todays[sic] update includes a number of fixes for combat and a brand new 1 vs 1 area to the south of Castle Wars dubbed The Honour Grounds.

This large expansion to the west of Feldip Hills offers solo PKers the chance to face off in glorious battles in a 1 vs 1 environment! This is a Medium Risk area surrounded by ogre enforcers hired by H0n0rPk3r247. It's strictly 1 vs 1, so your friends cannot help you in battle. You can find this area south of Castle Wars. There are no requirements to enter. Bring your gear and face off against a worthy opponent!
