The Elder Scrolls: Legends – Enter the Chaos Arena


Madness has come to The Elder Scrolls: Legends! From today through December 19, join us as Sheogorath himself takes over the Arena, turning it into his own personal Chaos Arena. The Chaos Arena comes complete with new art (including Sheogorath’s personal touch on the class avatars), cards, active scenarios, and lane conditions. Learn more about the new lineup of cards here. As an added bonus, if you log in to your Legends account during the event, you’ll get a free card pack, regardless of whether you try Chaos Arena or not! Card packs will be delivered shortly after the event ends.

If you’ve spent some time in the Versus Arena, you know the only lanes you’ll see are the standard Field lane and the Shadow lane, but that’s not nearly wild enough for Sheogorath’s tastes. Each match in the Chaos Arena will feature at least one crazy scenario rule or lane condition (some of which you may be familiar with, and some of which will be completely new), which is a first for Arena PvP. See all the possible scenarios and conditions below:


Current Scenarios for PvE

  • Duel – Both players start with a 2/1 Gladiator in opposite lanes
  • Shields Up – Both players start with 0/4 Guards in opposite lanes
  • All Out Brawl – Both players start with Broken Bottle, which strikes a random enemy for 1 damage at the start of your turn

New Scenarios for Chaos Arena

  • Hero’s Call – Before the game, shuffle three unique creatures into each player’s deck
  • Your Own Worst Enemy – Players switch decks at the start of the game
  • Sheogorath’s Game – Both players start with Wabbajack
  • On a Roll – Players start with a Sweet Roll in each lane
  • Power Unleashed – Players start with 3 additional magicka
  • To the Death! – Player one starts with a Gladiator Arena in play
  • Spawning Pool – Both players start with a Slaughterfish in different lanes

The standard Versus Arena mode and the Solo Arena mode will still be available from now through December 19. Chaos Arena follows the same win conditions as Versus Arena – three losses and you’re out – and the prizes awarded for winning are the same.
