Solo Arena is an arena mode in The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Solo Arena consists of several consecutive matches against the AI. Rather than using one of your already-constructed decks, you choose one of three offered classes to play as, and will given a selection of cards within that class to build a 30-card deck from. The deck will last only through the remainder of the arena, and you are given a choice from three more cards each time you defeat an opponent.

Rewards from the Arena are greater than the rewards earned in the campaign and Battle modes, and may include legendary cards or multiple card packs.

Gameplay[edit]

Pick your card.

In Solo Arena, you face off against the AI. The Solo Arena consists of eight opponents and a boss. You must fight all eight non-boss opponents before fighting the boss, and you can lose only three times.

When you enter the Arena, you will be faced with a screen of eight small counters, with the image and class of the corresponding enemy displayed, and a large counter showing the avatar but not class of the boss. To the left of your name will be your Solo Arena rank and win counter, and to the right your loss counter. Actual battles in Solo Arena are much the same as any others; you select a counter and hit play. Every time you win a match, the enemy's corresponding counter is replaced by an image of a coin, and another win is added to your win counter. When you win, you are given one more choice of cards. Every time you lose, the enemy's counter gains an overlay of a rune, and the same rune is added to your loss counter. Once you defeat all eight non-boss opponents, the class of the boss will be revealed and you will be able to fight him. You will receive an Adoring Fan card for defeating an Arena boss for the first time.

Ranks[edit]

An image of the solo arena menu, showing defeated opponents as coins, the boss under a lock icon, undefeated opponents as their avatars, losses to enemies marked with runes, and a selected opponent with a yellow highlight.

As with the Versus Arena and Chaos Arena, every time you earn a rank, you earn a promotion reward of fifty gold. You earn a rank every time you defeat a certain amount of opponents. Only seven wins are needed to rank up until you reach Hero. After this, the requirement to rank up is nine wins until you achieve the Grand Champion rank. Solo Arena has an independent ranking systems of the other Arenas, though the progression and naming scheme are identical.

A list of ranks follows:

9. Pit Dog
8. Brawler
7. Bloodletter
6. Myrmidon
5. Warrior
4. Gladiator
3. Hero
2. Champion
1. Grand Champion

Upon promotion to Grand Champion, you will receive a premium Adoring Fan.

Opponents[edit]

In the Solo Arena you have to fight against 8 different AI opponents before you can fight final the final boss. Each of these opponents is randomly selected from a predetermined pool based on your rank. Each opponent has unique deck and follow a specific theme. All enemies have titles, which usually relates to this theme. There are many different opponents for each class and attribute. In rare circumstances you can encounter so-called "feature matches" which are opponents that begin the match with a unique scenario, introduction text, and announcer dialogue, but need to be defeated like any other opponent.

For a list of each opponent and their decklists, see Solo Arena Opponents. Not all decklists are complete and some opponents might not be possible to encounter anymore.

Boss Battle[edit]

The final boss is selected from the same pool as the other 8 opponents, but is made more challenging due to the addition of one of the following Supports in play on their side.
