Read the full guide as it has a lot of great tips to aid you in completing the arena

Put it on easy and upgrade your magic.
Survive 5 waves in the arena (You might as well go up to wave 30 for the last man standing achievement)

Look at what sword you have steel/silver and remember its hit points so that when you want to get a new sword for winning you know that your upgrading/degrading

You can earn up to 35 Talent points that you can put towards your abilities If you want you could just lose 35 time as you rank up every time you return to the arena quarters.

Upgrade one of each of the top paths by just one so that you can unlock the paths below

Remember upgrade accordingly If you want to go the magic path then you should upgrade your AXII If a talent is lame obviously dont double upgrade it

Sometimes the more of the map you unlock the more mutagens you can place to aid you even further

ALWAYS TAKE THE MUTAGENS AS THEY DONT SHOW UP ALWAYS unless theres something too beast to pass up

I upgraded the sword path just to get the extra armor points

I never upgraded any of the alchemy path

Armor is very important and remember to pay attention to what your armor defense value is no reason to accept a gauntlet that gives +Def when you already have one

Weight shouldn't be a problem but if it is you can drop your lame starting items... I was searching in the arena for a place where you can sell those items but I never found anything if there is someone please post

If your having trouble with a arena you can always hire a mage, a knight, or a troll to help you

I only hired someone on the arena that has like 8 Elementals or golems?
as a distraction

run in circles around the camp fires use the campfires to separate or get your enemies stuck to give you some room.

When running use your magic as you earn them it takes long but its a sureFIRE way to kill everything without dying

If your about to die or got hit by some poison/fire you can use your (I cant think of the spells name someone post in the comments for update) the spell that protects you from harm... although when the spell is active you cannot earn any magic

Some armors have special attributes with them that might increase your magic power or your hit power these are important to watch because they really do aid in killing.
