Go to the Arena and speak to Hundolin and he will direct the Hero to Owyn. He will be a bit angry as he has other things to do. When asked about joining he will be delighted but still a bit condescending towards them.
He will ask what kind of armor they would like, choose between Arena Heavy Raiment or Arena Light Raiment. The Hero will also belong to the Blue team. They may also choose any weapon, shield, helmet, rings, or amulets to wear in addition to the provided armor.
He will also tell them to let him know when they are ready for a match. Tell Owyn when ready for competing and he will let them know who they will fight. Then proceed through the Red Room to the Arena.
There are a total of eight ranks. To proceed through these ranks you will go through 25 standard matches. The ranks are as follows:
- Pit Dog
- Grand Champion
When the last standard match has been fought, it's time to challenge the reigning Grand Champion, The Gray Prince. Owyn sends the Hero to speak with Agronak to challenge him. He will accept the challenge and tell them to speak with Ysabel as she is his trainer and manager.
Ysabel will tell the Hero now the rules have changed. Looting the bodies is strictly forbidden during the previous matches but now they can take whatever the Champion has. When they defeat the Champion, she wants them to take his Agronak's Raiment and come back and give it to her. She will then reward them with their own version with identical enchantments, again giving them the choice of a heavy or light version.
She will let them choose an Arena Title from a list and people will then call them by this name after they become Grand Champion. Here is the list of names.
Head up to the Arena and Agronak will be waiting. How hard the fight will be depends on if one have completed the quest Origin of the Gray Prince. If this is done, Agronak will beg the Hero to kill him. When Agronak is killed, take his armor and go back to Ysabel. She is very excited despite the circumstances as she liked Agronak. She tells the Hero to rest and then come back so they can discuss the future.
After a rest or speak to her directly, she will inform them they can come back for weekly matches against various creatures. Just let her know when ready and she'll have acquired new creatures every week.
If I wish to join the Arena faction as a combatant, I must speak with Owyn the Blademaster in the Arena Bloodworks.
I am now a combatant in the Arena faction. To arrange for a match, I must speak with Owyn in the Arena Bloodworks, in the Imperial City. After every match, I must speak to Owyn again to close out the match and receive any rewards earned. While I'm involved in any active matches, I will be unable to bet on any fights.
I am now an Arena Champion. There are no more standard matches left to fight. Instead, I must challenge the Grand Champion, Agronak gro-Malog, for the title.
I have defeated the Gray Prince and have been named the new Arena Grand Champion! Ysabel Andronicus told me to return to her after I've gotten some rest, so we can discuss my future.
As Arena Grand Champion, I can fight in weekly matches against various creatures. All I need do is see Ysabel Andronicus in the Arena Bloodworks and tell her I'm ready for a match.
