All other armors and passive traits and doffs are fair game?

is this a cross faction event? cause my klingon would love a chance to use her bat'leth in honorable combat

oh also

Khelassa@oyxheart1 would be my entry

just as an aside...i DID just earn the title of bat'leth tournament champion of the House of Nagh Red (a Stonewall affiliated fleet) quite recently i'd be a ringer for this

funny you should mention the gorn bite, the previous champion of my fleet was a gorn...tried to win with that bite, i still killed him before I succumbed to his bIHnuch tactic *growls*

Yep, you can use any other armor.... elite fleet just have a super heal to it

Cryo Immobilizer Module is the only passive banned, only because it will freeze the other fighter... all others are open

use any Doffs you want, we have yet to say no to any during our internal events

Oh i also had another question, are elite fleet WEAPONS also banned from the tournament like the elite fleet armors? cause the melee weapons are quite powerful

(also elite fleet anything is a bit much if non-fleet players or players in lower tier fleets join the tournament; just saying)

if i have more questions down the road before the tournament starts i'll see about adding them here ^^

It has been brought to my attention that I forgot to list another restricted passive
  • Nukara Tier 3 - Emergency Fix "Chance of HoT"

This was banned because of the Heal over Time effect it will give
