How to Enter Colosseum Combat in Elden Ring
To enter the Colosseum PvP combat arena in Elden Ring, you first have to download the latest update. According to the Elden Ring Twitter, the downtime started on December 7th at 1 AM PDT / 10 AM CEST / 6 PM JST, so it’s probably done by the time you’re reading this. Don’t worry, it’s free for everybody; the developers don’t want anybody missing out on the carnage. Once you have the newest update installed, head over to Roundtable Hold. Go to the fireplace, and you’ll see a brand new statue of Marika in the place where Roderika usually hangs out. Interacting with this statue sends you to the Arena Combat menu. And that’s basically all there is to it.
So, that’s how you enter the PvP combat arena in Elden Ring, aka the Colosseum. There are a number of settings that you can use to tailor your experience to your liking. You can choose the type of combat you want to engage in, the number of players, and whether you want to allow Ashes to begin with. You also have the ability to set a password for the Colosseum you’re creating, locking it away from everyone you don’t share the password with. Of course, you choose your venue between Leyndell, the Caelid Colosseum and the Limgrave Colosseum. Leyndell allows Duels only, while the other two let you duel as well as play Team Deathmatch or Free For All.
Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
