Maelstrom Arena, also known as Arena: Maelstrom, is an Arena that appears in The Elder Scrolls Online: Orsinium. It is a pocket realm of Oblivion ruled over by Fa-Nuit-Hen, consisting of multiple stages created by his Barons Who Move Like This.



The entrance is found in northeastern Wrothgar. It is a run-down stone building with no inhabitants. Inside, there is an Oblivion Gate that can transport you to the Redguard manor.

Stage 0: Redguard manorEdit

The starting point of the Arena is a Redguard manor. It is surrounded in a circle of rocks and boulders, the manor located in a barren desert with a small river. Fa-Nuit-Hen can be found inside the farthest house with Tutor Riparius, alongside the hall with the champion busts. The portal is located inside the doors behind him.

Stage 1: Vale of the SurrealEdit

The Vale of the Surreal is a Shivering Isles-themed arena. The environment is large mushrooms and Altmeri architecture, with a large tree in the center.

Stage 2: Seht's BalconyEdit

An arena based on Sotha Sil's Clockwork City. The architecture is a series of brass structures with spinning blades and electric hazards in the middle.

Stage 3: Drome of Toxic ShockEdit

The Drome of Toxic Shock is based off the environments of Murkmire in Black Marsh. It is a swampland with some mounds of land covered in grass. It is surrounded by stony hills and a wooden barrier.

Stage 4: Seht's FlywheelEdit

A second arena themed after Sotha Sil's city, this arena is similar to the Balcony. The design is different, being much more closed in with a thick brass pillar towering in the center. It is surrounded by tall brass walls.

Stage 5: Rink of Frozen BloodEdit

A sub-zero arena based off the Wrothgarian Mountains. It is a large pond with toxic freezing water and three vulnerable ice platforms. There are a number of trees and mountains surrounding it.

Stage 6: Spiral ShadowsEdit

An arena based off the Spiral Skein, this location contains gloomy fog and an eroded stone landscape. There are glowing mushrooms and stone structures dotting the arena.

Stage 7: Vault of UmbrageEdit

Another arena based off Murkmire, this location takes place in an underground Ayleid ruin. Moss hangs from the ceiling while mushrooms grow on the ground.

Stage 8: Igneous CisternEdit

The Igneous Cistern takes place in a cavern found deep underground. It is surrounded by lava, with barren dirt mounds making up the only traversable land.

Stage 9: Theater of DespairEdit

The final round of the realm, this arena is based off Mehrunes Dagon's Deadlands. It is a large stone circular platform with a floating ring of stalactites hovering above.
