The Arena is an instanced PvP matchmaker, where two teams of 5 players fight in a non-full-loot environment for victory.
To enter the Arena, a player should select "Activities" from the top right menu and then Arena. Alternatively, a player may visit Arena Master Joan. They will then be presented with the option to join Solo or as a group for the 5 versus 5 Arena Battle. Players must wear gear that has an average of 700 Item Power between the pieces. Within the arena, all gear is "soft-capped" at 800 item power, and maxes out at 900 item power. Players may join the arena queue as either healers or DPS. All arena fights require at least 1 healer on both teams. DPS may run any non-healing weapon with any type of armor, so long as it meets the average item power requirement.
Arena Mechanics and Rules
Each team starts in their own base tent with 150 points, waiting for the game to start. Once the game begins all 3 zones will start counting down, indicating when they are ready to be captured. Capturing a zone will deduct 10 points from the enemy team and temporarily lock that zone from being captured again. Zones will not unlock until all 3 zones have been successfully captured by either team (upon capturing all 3 zones there will be a 30 second timer until they unlock again and continue their cycle). Killing an enemy player will deduct 2 points from the enemy team, and being killed by an enemy player will deduct 2 points from your own team. The first team to reach 0 points loses the game.
- Being inside your own base tent regenerates health and energy at a fast rate.
- Base tents will attack enemy players that are too close or attempting to enter, dealing severe damage.
- When both teams are contesting the same zone, the capture progress will pause until all members of one team leave the zone's capture radius.
- Upon death you will respawn in your base tent after your respawn timer has concluded (dying will not reset your ability cooldowns).
Players will receive all of the following rewards for winning an Arena match (can only be collected 3 times a day).
