The Arena is a smaller version of the Great Arena, except that all quests involving it involve smaller minions due to it's size, such as Felynes and Hermitaurs. A pillar of rock obscures much of the area, providing a small area for minions to dodge your attempts to kill them. Surrounding the small arena is three monster portals, in which minion Bird Wyverns such as the Velociprey can leap out of, if they are your target monsters to kill.
