Built shortly after the Sunspears withdrew from Dynastic service, this arena serves as a place for Sunspear heroes and new inductees to hone their fighting abilities.

— in-game description

The Sunspear Arena is one of the maps in rotation in Random and Codex Arena and also the map accessible through Kamadan, Jewel of Istan as arena for levels 1 to 10.

The opposing teams have a straight path towards each other on this map. The main path is flooded but has no environmental effect. The other feature of this map is a wide bridge over the central battle ground.

Objective[edit]

Annihilate the opposing party.

Common tactics/tips[edit]

  • If you stand on the bridge, it's possible to strike enemies who are directly below you in melee, and vice versa.
  • In spite of this, being on top of or below the bridge is often advisable for casters when there is melee below or on top of the bridge, respectively, due to the increased distance they have to cover in order to change targets.
  • The corners of the bridge supports are the only real obstruction on the map other than the bridge itself and the walls of the starting area. However, the starting area on this map is incredibly small, so turtling there is not advised.

Notes[edit]

  • Elite skills are not allowed in the low-level version of this arena.
  • Complete exploration of this arena contributes approximately 0.1% to the Elonian Cartographer title, if visited directly from Kamadan, Jewel of Istan
  • If you get killed in this arena you will lose the current progress made on the Survivor title.
