Arena

What is Arena?

The Arena is a cluster-wide event that takes place on Ragnarok just next to the green obelisk, around 55/35.

You will enter the Arena alongside your creature companion and other players to fight your way through different waves of spawned creatures and monsters. The further you get, the greater the challenge, and greater the reward!

The event is open to all players of any level, so it doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran or if you just joined Astral ARK. All you need to bring is the items you wish to use during the event, and a creature companion or two if you have them. If you don’t we can loan creatures, except for the Lava Golem round. You can participate in the Arena on foot, however we would recommend having a creature with you for Bracket 2 and up as it will be hard to contribute evenly without one.

How does it work?

■ Arrive at Arena at least 15 minutes before it is due to start, allowing yourself enough time to store your spare creature in the holding area and to ensure you are fully prepared for the event.

■ Once ready, players can enter the Arena itself and head to the green starting square and await the start of the event.

■ At 7PM UK time, once players confirm they are ready, the first wave will be spawned at the red square.

■ Admins will confirm the round can start, at which point players can then leave the green square and start the fight.

■ Once the round is completed, players should either head back to the green square and get ready for the next round, or ask to leave the Arena if they wish to drop out.

■ You can have 1 minute in between the first 3 rounds and up to 5 minutes before the last round.

■ After the break, the next round will start. It will continue in this manner until all rounds of the bracket have been completed.

■ Once the bracket is completed, players will be asked to gather at one of the coloured squares where the prizes will be given out.

FAQ

Can I come and watch?

Yes of course, anyone may come and watch Arena. However please make sure you stay on the viewing platform provided to avoid accidentally interfering with Arena by drawing aggro.

What creatures can I bring?

Only creatures on the above “allowed” lists can be brought to Arena. However we are always open to suggestions, so feel free to ask if you think a specific creature would work in a bracket.

What happens if me or my creatures die during Arena?

If you die, you can re-enter by the small gates to get your corpse and continue the event. You cannot however bring in your spare creature until the round has finished.

When do we get the prizes?

The standard loot prizes will be given out at one of the coloured squares at the end of each bracket. The shop points will be given out to each player after the event is over.

I don’t have any creature, can I participate?

Yes. We can loan creatures for all brackets except for the Lava Golem round. If you use them at any point during Arena, you won’t get shop points but you will still get the standard loot prizes at the end of each bracket.

Loaner creatures have to be returned in the Loaner creatures area after Arena. There is no need to unclaim them.

I have creatures that I don’t use anymore, can I donate them to Arena?

If you don’t use some of your creatures anymore, you can leave them in the Loaner creatures area and admins will claim them for new participants to use. Do not unclaim them. We would recommend spaying or neutering them, but it is not mandatory.

Do not leave your personal dinos in there as they will be claimed by admins.
