Gurubashi Arena from the air.
The Gurubashi Arena (or The Arena), is located in the jungles of Cape of Stranglethorn, just north of Booty Bay. The Arena is an old relic of the mighty Gurubashi Empire, which once controlled vast tracts of land in the southern regions of the Eastern Kingdoms.
- Patch 1.4.0 (2005-05-05):
- There is now a regular event in Gurubashi Arena in Stranglethorn Vale. Every three hours starting at midnight, a pirate with too much treasure on his hands will drop a chest in the center of the arena. Whoever can open the chest first gets the contents! Of course, the arena is a PvP Free for All area, so there might be other players who are trying to open it first...
- Players no longer will get stuck in a location at Gurubashi Arena in Stranglethorn Vale.
- Patch 1.2.0 (2004-12-18): The arena in Stranglethorn Vale has been changed so that free-for-all PvP will only take place on the floor of the arena, and no longer in the stands or on the entrance ramp. Please keep in mind that on PvP realms, members of the opposite faction can still attack you anywhere in the arena because Stranglethorn Vale is a contested area.
