The Arena Update Thread

Post by mirocu » Sat Nov 03, 2018 8:55 am

I've played this game but not so often anymore. My character is a Nord called Thor from Valhalla and he's pretty much indestrucible now thanks to the magic he possess. He mostly roams around towns in Skyrim and do the occasional quest involving rescuing someone from a monster or capturing a criminal hiding in a cave.


Anyone care to weigh in on the topic of playing Arena?

I haven't played it since Daggerfall released. Tried it a while back in DOS box but it wasn't optimal.... I don't remember enough about it decades later to know if it was fun! Probably was....
Loving fantasy since 1960 or so, FRPGs since 1975 (appx), and CRPGs since 1985....

When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back,
Three from the Circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone:
Five will return, and one go on alone.

I liked it most def. Then again, I always like to explore a new game and find out how it works and what it all looks like etc.

As per usual I have no interest in the MQ despite my character being all buff, and because there's not much else to do is the reason I don't play so much anymore. But I may play some this evening.

The MQ is kinda the main content of Arena. I mean, you can do what you're doing, but it will definitely get pretty monotonous after a while.

I'd recommend Daggerfall for more of an open-world experience.

Hence why I don't play so much anymore. My focus was leveling up offensive and defensive magic and that's pretty much done now. I need so much XP to level up again that I simply don't see it happening. The occasional dungeon dive is still fun though. One thing Arena does not lack is atmosphere :1:

I've been meaning to get to that at some point. Wonder when that point will come? :18:

I just placed a small bet on "Never." ;)
