"The port city of Wayrest hail all weary travelers who wish to rest. Find ye the strength within our walls to continue your journey, wherever that may be..."
―In-game description[src]

Wayrest is a city in High Rock. It is one of several possible locations that the Eternal Champion may discover in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.


Wayrest is connected to three settlements. To the northeast is Vermeir Wastes, to the far northwest is Kings Guard, and to the south is Thorstad Place in Hammerfell.


  • In earlier development, Arena was going to be a tournament based game where each city had their own gladiatorial team. Wayrest's team was known as the Highlanders.[OOG 1]
