The PVP map is now open for testing. You can go to the gazebo at spawn and step onto the lapis ore block to get there. We are still figuring out all the Multiverse settings, and are changing a few plugins around, so expect changes. This is all mostly for testing so that we know what might and might not work for 1.8. The immediate plans are to get factions working on the PVP map and only the PVP map, get factions working with Dynmap, and work on making an End quest for the PVP world. The End quest will lead you to a version of the End that is harder than the standard End for the main map. If all goes as planned, beating it will have to be a team effort, but the team that does will be rewarded in a significant way. There is not a Nether for the PVP map, which limits access to fire opals and potions. We will probably add some sort of potion shop, but fire opals will not be added to the PVP map. We are also open to suggestions on what players think may help the PVP map be a success.
