The Arena

Dangers

Despite the rumors, this zone is very safe. The only area of the zone that is PvP is the Arena itself, which is a large ring shaped building in the middle of the zone. The opening to the Arena lies on the opposite side of the entrance, so it is impossible to accidentally step into the PvP area and be killed. Aside from that, there are virtually no other players in this zone at any given time, since there is practically nothing here.

Benefits

The main benefit of this zone is its relative safety. There are no monsters, and most of the zone is not actually PvP. Characters can also be bound inside of this zone, which is a much needed feature for good races hunting the aviak town in South Karana or in Lake Rathetear or the Rathe Mountains. Nobody wants to run from Qeynos or Highpass Keep...

The other benefit is that occasionally there are sanctioned battles in the Arena, with prizes given out to the champions. On non-PvP servers, it is one of the few places other than the cities individual arenas that allow PvP combat for those who wish to enjoy it.

Travel To and From

The Arena can be reached by entering from Lake Rathetear. In the northwest corner of Lake Rathetear along its western border can be found a rather large grassy area inhabited by aviaks, north of the barbarian village. The tunnel to the Arena can be found there, flanked by two aviak lookout posts.
