Madness is coming to The Elder Scrolls: Legends next week!
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:

Scenarios
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 December 14 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.


The Madhouse Collection

The unique Madhouse Collection can be purchased with Gold or money in the Store. It consists of:
  • 1 legendary card
  • 3 epic cards
  • 6 rare cards
  • 1 common card

These cards aren’t randomized like a normal pack of cards; when you purchase the Madhouse Collection, you’ll receive 3 copies of each card in the set. You’ll also receive an Arena Ticket so that you can give Chaos Arena a spin, if you’d like. Note that the Madhouse Collection cards will be immediately added to all Arena modes, including Sheogorath’s bizarre Chaos Arena.

TLDR:
- New game mode called: Chaos Arena with current and original scenarios and lane conditions playable between December 14 & December 19
- A pack of ten new different cards (3 copies of each) and an Arena ticket that can be purchased for either gold or money.
- Only three cards were completely revealed, rest is coming this week

Glad that we're starting to get some events and new cards. It's time to start saving some gold! :)
However, there's one thing that wasn't clear: how much will it cost to purchase The Madhouse Collection?

Clever idea! I'll save some gold and play only Chaos Arena starting December 14th.

Didn't I tell you that this game isn't DEAD?! Here is living proof that Direwolf and Bethesda are taking good care of it!

Yup. Naysayers will always have something to say when things are quiet..

Your Own Worst Enemy – Players switch decks at the start of the game.

Oh! Nice Deck! I think I WILL TAKE IT! - Rafaam!

The moment you make a troll deck just for this situation :p
I really like the idea of releasing a very small set of cards, with the aim of shaking off a bit the game, and giving the option to buy them all at once. That's something that could be done every couple of months to prevent the game's stagnation, together with a couple of major expansion releases per year (ideally).

Regarding the arena event, it's just going to be a pretty fun random-clown-fiesta game mode, so I suppose it's going to be restricted to a few days so as to get some feedback. It will probably reappear in the future, but it's a wise move to not establishing it as a separate permanent game mode yet, since currently there are not enough players to sustain two VS arena modes at all.

I agree with Dark on this one! I really hope it'll reappear in the future, heck, I really hope it stays there forever!

Damn i only have 170g atm. Going to grind some more until release. Hopefully the gold price won't be crazy high.

I agree, that would be nice!

A Sheogorath event seemed like the perfect opportunity to introduce the (purple?) Dark Seducers to represent both sides of Sheogorath along the yellow Golden Saint. I guess we will have to wait until a daedra themed expansion or something like that, maybe when another "if you have more health" color set is released.

I really hope that "if you have more health" won't go out of control in the future. Sometimes you gain gigantic advantage because you have 1 more health than your opponent and that doesn't seem to be exactly fair. It's a cool mechanic, but I think it should be changed to "if you have more runes"

Forsaken Champion will work with any race? If so, Nord Firebrand decks will be nuts, as well as dwemers! BTW you can update it's race to Reachman

Also this:

Oldgate Warden + Ring of Imaginary Might = a 4/6 (if you play them on same turn) Magika 7/7 Guard Regenerate. He literally becomes the best Taunt in the game. All we need is to play him with that Blue card that prevents Silence and he won't be killable unless by Lethal or Finish off effects!

Of course, being a free to player means that I have to craft these cards myself. Y'know that I had to craft every single card in both my Hist Scout and Control Spellsword deck in order to ascend to Legend?!

Race updated thanks!

Well, most players are F2P in this game, or at least that's my impression. All my soul gems come from the VS Arena, so I haven't spent any money appart from the Welcome Pack, but I think I'll probably support the game and the devs with this new content.

It's not that I don't want to support them, it's that I cannot do it due to my country's heavy currency blockade restrictions. I can't buy stuff that can help me in the game nor I can buy stuff just for the sake of helping the industry. It's a lose-lose for me.
I'm with you DV. I never gave Blizz a single dime for HS, but I ponied up for the TESL Welcome Packs and if I don't have enough gold for this when it launches next week I will give $ again. These guys deserve my hard-earned $ for finally getting an OLCCG right!
