    Seems like lots of people don't understand the rules of arena so I'll list them out to help. :)
    1. Gravity spells are banned
    2. Jump is banned (5x kains won't work. :( )
    3. There is a damage cap of 999. Chains can bypass this.
    4. Multi hit abilities (barrage) can hit 999 multiple times
    5. Dual wielding units can hit 999 twice
    6. Dual casting units can hit 999 twice
    7. There are special banned abiltiies per week
    8. You cannot use items
    9. If you are hit with petrify, it counts as a death. (Like you can't use thunder element spells or dual cast)
    10. The person who starts each turn is decided randomly (so someone can go twice in a row)
    11. If it exceeds 10 turns (the turn limit), it is judged by the number of people alive and the HP remaining.

    Can you explain better your point number 9?

    Is the AI good? Like they will basicly auto attacks, or it will use abilities, chaining, curaja etc etc?

    The AI is pretty stupid, they mostly auto attack but they occasionally use skills. #9 connects to #11, so if 4/5 of your units are petrified and 4/5 of the AI units are dead, and the unit on the opposing team has more HP, the AI wins.

    I think it should be Single target multi hit abilites. o/ I have my Chizu 6* on JP and mugen skill deals AoE 5x200 instead of 5x999 even thought its multi hit ability.

    Also skill that give instant death are banned ( with exception to randomly casted spells from abilites like Tellah )

    Indeed, new story content Ghost Ship exploration has a Gale Key which unlocks Golem Staff with a 30% chance to cause petrify on a hit.

    Hi, quick question: I thought espers were banned but I can't see it in your rules.
    I've just used Carbuncle but I'm pretty sure I wanted to try earlier and it was banned (or just for a week?)
    Thanks

    #4 "Multi hit" abilities... i think it should be rephrased to "Multi attack" abilities.

    Petrify is kinda odd for me as a newcomer. I was waltzing to easy victory when suddenly AI petrified my whole team in one turn. Got to say my jaw dropped pretty fast.
