Basic Info
Campaign: Core
Type: Arena
Part of: The Battle Isles
Isle of the Nameless

The Training Arena is a Zaishen Order facility located on a beach near the Great Temple of Balthazar on the Battle Isles. The purpose of this arena is to simulate PvP and GvG team fights against AI-controlled Zaishen fighters.

The basics

  • You have approximately 20 seconds of prep time before each match begins.
  • You can enter the Training Arena with other players or with Heroes. If you enter alone, you will be provided with three Henchmen once the arena loads.

How to get there

The Training Arena does not appear as an icon on the map, and you can not directly map travel there. The only way to reach this arena is to talk to the Master of Paths on Isle of the Nameless. You may return to the Master of Paths at any time and he will take you to the Training Arena as often as you want.

  1. PvE characters must map travel to The Battle Isles by clicking the ship icon on the World map.
  2. Go to the the Great Temple of Balthazar. PvP characters spawn here automatically.
  3. Go out the only exit from this area. It's to the north and goes to the Isle of the Nameless.
  4. Talk to the Master of Paths. He will be behind you once you zone into the Isle of the Nameless area.
  5. Select the following choices:
  • "Yes. Tell me of my choices."
  • "Tell me of your Training Arenas."
  • "I am ready to take a team into the Training Arenas."

Tips / Walkthrough

  • Even if you are new to PvP and you use henchmen, the enemy AI team is easy to beat.
  • Have one player / Hero attack the Elementalist, while the rest of your team attacks the Enemy Monk.
  • During Obelisk Annihilation Training, let the enemy team capture the Obelisk first, then take it. The enemy team will not re-capture the Obelisk.
  • During Priest Annihilation Training, go for the enemy Priest first.
  • You can only get 2000 faction per day from this arena. This faction cap is shared with Zaishen Challenge and Zaishen Elite missions.
