So I think a few of us can agree we want the arena, and right now it's the only upgrade for the hall several people want that is within reach. But there's some good news and bad news.
The good news is that arena level 2 requires guild level 10 (which we are past already), and once we have arena level 2, most* of the obstacle upgrades for it cost relatively little compared to other upgrades. This makes for a few (again, relatively) cheap levels for the guild. Plus, they're kinda neat looking.
*One of the obstacle upgrades requires 300 linseed oil. WHY?!
The bad news is that both the arena and its level 2 upgrade require three pain in the ass ingredients: Potions of PvP reward, celestial inscriptions, and celestial insignia.
The potions: You can get them from spvp dailies. The dailies aren't hard to do, but we need 150 for both the level 1 and level 2 arena combined, and getting two or three a day makes this a slow process.
The Inscriptions & insignias: Inscriptions aren't so bad. Gossamer insignia, however, required hardened leather, which is expensive as hell. On top of that, these have to be celestial insigs/inscripts, which means we need 5 charged quartz per inscript/insig. It costs 25 quartz to get 1 charged quartz, and you can only do it once per day. So, yeah. We need 6 of each, so if one person did it solo, it would cost them over a hundred gold and a whole god damned month of charging quartz every single day. So let's work together and make this a bit more attainable.
