Arena Resources is the thirty-seventh optional quest. It can be acquired by talking to Limma in Lothlorien after completing the quest Night Elves. The objective of the quest is to successfully escort a supply ship from Lothlorien all the way over to the Battle Arena, protecting it from the monsters that wander the Naga Islands. After talking to Limma the first time, the player can encounter her at the transition between Naga Islands and Ancient Forest and speak to her to initiate the escort mission. Limma herself will tag along and attack monsters, but will not pull them away from the ship as she is invulnerable and will therefore not be targeted by enemies. The ship must reach the Battle Arena without being destroyed to complete the quest. If the ship is destroyed, the player may try again by talking to Limma again. This can be repeated infinitely. Upon completion, the player is rewarded with 2000 EXP and a varying amount of gold. Limma is now located in the Battle Arena and three minutes later, the quest Arena Expansion is unlocked.
The amount of gold awarded for this quest depends on the player's performance when escorting the ship. The base reward is 4500 Gold. However, every time the ship is destroyed and the player has to retry the mission, 1000 Gold is subtracted from this value. If the reward is down to 500 Gold or less, only 100 Gold is subtracted every failure until finally, the lowest possible point of 100 Gold is reached (after 8 failures) at which point the reward no longer decreases.
Also, if the player manages to escort the ship without it taking any damage at all (healing it does not count), the gold reward is multiplied by 4. That way, a maximum of 18000 Gold can be obtained by completing this quest.
