    Well Craka vegetation wouldn't go very well in the arena if you remember the boss fight lol, wouldn't really make too much sense.

    Also don't worry the Goblin is an optional boss fight and won't be needed other than for just a challenge.

    There is no vegetation needed, but some height variation wouldn't harm :>

    I kept the arena flat because arenas tend to be on flat grounds. However, I suppose it couldn't hurt to elevate the ground where the walls are, sort of making the arena seem like it is in a ditch or on lower grounds.

    Don't give it away Craka :), but it will be extremely filled once you initiate the boss fight, as well as making it into a ditch would make the arena seem a lot better.

    Making it look like a ditch would be no problem really, would make it a lot more interesting as well, we will work on ideas on how to make it look better for you guys, but as Craka said, arenas are usually flat.

    That picture is interesting because of the dust in the air, the crowd of people watching, theres a few monk dudes in the back, epic music in the back... Sadly, you cannot do a third of that in warcraft :/

    Edit: "you cannot do a third of that in warcraft " to the same scale as in the movie.

    Well, don't look at rl arenas, take a look on the WOW arenas, they are a very good place for inspiration with pillars, bridges, movable fire etc etc.

    ^ No, WoW is garbage, but that is off topic, anyways great work coming along. We have conducted some testing with a select few testers to try out some things, and check for starting bugs etc... So far they are doing great!

    Expect to play soon beta testers, we will bring you in shortly!

    I tried to get into contact with you yabooer awhile ago, you told me to get on msn or skype but the time differences caused some problems. If you guys still are in need of more testers let me know.
