The Arcadion Quests

Lore

Here at the Arcadion, you'll find a grand spectacle unlike any other. The realm's greatest fighters pit fist against fist and magick against magick, putting their lives on the line as crowds howl and clamor, each clash more visceral than the last. Step into the arena if you dare, and either rise to become champion, or fall forever in ignominy.

— Dawntrail Special Site

The Arcadion is a sporting venue for the citizens of Solution Nine. During the Dawntrail Main Scenario Quests, the Arcadion is closed due to needing soul resources for the King of Alexandria Zoraal Ja's army. After both his and Queen Sphene's defeat, the proprietor of the Arcadion re-opens the venue to allow the Alexandrians to take their minds off of the recent political turmoil.

Trivia

In a Live Letter prior to the release of Dawntrail, the Japanese name of the first duty was accidentally revealed as "ライトヘビー級1", which roughly translates to "Light Heavyweight, Round 1".
