Duelling Arena!

So as it happens, there is a duelling arena in-game already! All of you asking for arenas got your wish. :p.

If you head to Stormhaven and leave Wayrest, you are bound to bump into these flags:

74a29e0622.jpg

On the map it is shown by crossed swords, and it is called Hammerdeath Arena:

2097c8da88.jpg

Follow the flags and you are greeted by a great entrance:

Inside there are three duelling arenas, two large and one small, with plenty of spectator area:

Come try your best and duel your friends!

    This area is closed off on Live. There are several arena style areas in the game like this which we'll be looking into using for Mighty duel events outside of Cyrodiil. Looks like good fun! Thanks for thinking of this, ZOS.

    A good place to go and to stay out of towns. I believe that ZOS should disable in town dueling for it causes lag, make cluster of people, hard to hear NPC dialog and gets in the way of RP'ing.

    In fact, all 5 crafting stations and a dye station could be really useful. This also goes for DSA and MA - show the arenas some inventory-management love!
