Orsinium (Wrothgar) is out for PC today (November 2).The DLC is slated to be released on PS4 tomorrow.As we all know ,there are two new large Public Dungeons and a new solo arena called The Maelstrom Arena.
The Maelstrom Arena is a solo instanced arena where you can face off against waves of enemies and earn great rewards. The Arena is located in the zone of Wrothgar (Orsinium DLC) near the north east corner of the map. To access the Maelstrom Arena you will need to either have an active ESO Plus subscription or have purchased the Orsinium DLC on the Crown Store (3000 Crowns). You can tackle the Arena at any level with the Battle Level feature which raises your stats to an average VR14 character. In fact Battle Level can be on throughout the Wrothgar zone.
The Maelstrom Arena can be completed in two different modes – Normal and Veteran. You will gain access to Veteran mode when you reach Veteran Rank 1.
Your progress in The Maelstrom Arena is saved and you can stop and resume after each stage. So there are nine stages in total and you can complete these one by one with a break in between with no progress lost. This is possible because the Arena is tied to a repeatable solo quest.
here are multiple rewards in the Maelstrom Arena. You will be able to loot enemies and these have chance to drop some of the new weapon and jewellery item sets, amongst other things. In both the Normal and Veteran modes you can be rewarded with these new sets and also possibly a Maelstrom Weapon. You will be also be rewarded after each stage of the Arena.
While you are inside the Arena there are four Sigils which spawn before each round. You can simply walk over to one and activate it to gain a unique bonus which will apply while you are in the Arena.
SIGIL OF HASTE

SIGIL OF HEALING

When you reach Veteran Rank 16, the current level cap, you will be ranked in leader boards at The Maelstrom Arena based on your Class. There are 4 leader boards, one for each Class. You can earn points in the Arena in a variety of different ways.
1).You will be granted points every time you complete an Arena. You can earn bonus points for each round that you survive.
2).If you complete a round without activating a Sigil then you can also earn bonus points.
3).If you complete the Arena within 1 hour and 30 minutes you will get some bonus points. More points are rewarded for quicker runs.
