Which arenas work best? How do you know?
The only way you can tell which arenas work best is if you try them.

But most likely, you are going to want to keep running an arena that has your skill level.
For example, if you can take down a Barbarian in a single magic burst, it’s time to move on.

Lets see if we can find the general level range…

King’s Arena
King’s arena runs only Barbarians, making it an easy task.
I would reccomend Levels 1-10 but you can always come back to it for funsies.
Just winning this arena once was enough for me, I only wanted this fun guy

Thieves’ Arena
Thieves Arena runs only Thieves, making it slightly harder, those fellows are pretty fast.
Reccomended Levels 6-19 while it is harder than Barbarians, it still is pretty easy to keep the guys down on the ground with some magic bursts.
Near the last rounds, they tend to swarm you with arrows, be on the look out for that.
Winning this arena once grants you the playable Thief character.

Volcano Arena
Volcano arena runs Coneheads,making it debatably harder than icey arena.
Reccomended Levels 10-26 These guys tend to bomb spam.
They also have a crit chance, watch out for those.
Winning this arena grants you a Conehead, you lucky dog.

Peasants’ Arena
In my opinion, this is THE hardest Arena out of all of the arenas(not including insane mode)Snakeys are very hard to deal with.
I cannot reccomend a certain level range, but if you are around the 20’s or lower 30’s, don’t waste your energy.
Snakeys use arrows and melee to their advantage. While single, they are easy to overcome, but once you hit around Wave 8, you better be ready. They tend to attack 2 at a time, and go behind you a lot, preventing magic spam.

Icey Arena
While this arena is tricky, it is not as hard as Peasants’ Arena.
While the slipping and sliding on the ice puts you at a disadvantage, don’t bother running the Yeti.
Sorry, little guy.
Around the time you get to this arena, then it would be easy to beat it.
Let’s say reccomended level 23+ But make sure you can beat the Frost King first.

I hope my advice bids you well on your quest young Knight, have some cookies.
