Klaudios, King of the Bandits
When you enter this boss fight, you will also face hordes of thugs as well as Claudius. You’ll start off by taking out four waves that gradually get stronger with the addition of poison and brute opponents.
When Klaudios steps into the ring, he’ll have a few tricks up his sleeve. He wields a set of daggers as his main weapon but he can makes them poisonous also. Claudius too he likes to use smoke bombswhich can hurt if you happen to be in range.
They too leaving you open to a sneak attack because he covers his hits when you least expect it.
He too has a sliding attack this can be easily avoided, but it’s an opponent you shouldn’t have any trouble defeating.
Belos, the beast from Sparta
Belos, The Beast of Sparta, is a bit more difficult, but the fight is still fairly manageable. You will again face four waves of enemiesbut this time they will be a mixture elites, spears, protectsand game.

Evanthe, the huntress
Evanthe, The Huntress, loves her creatures, so they are the main focus in the four waves in front of her. You will fight with wolves, lynxes and bears, but warriors are just as deadly. The fiery wildlings will throw incendiary bombs at you, which will burn you if you are in range, and The daughter of Artemis is quick on her feet.
When these waves are overcome, you will notice the lion fights at the side of Evantha. You will want to take it out first so you only have to focus on fighting one opponent instead of two.
With the beast out of the picture, you can turn your attention back to the Huntress. Be ready for her fire arrows; you’ll always want to be on the move to avoid them. However, if you go in with your melee weapon be ready for her spear which is also surrounded by fire.

Vasilis is also known as the king of the arena, and it is the hardest fight of all. He will send waves of Spartan soldiers who you have to beat in the mix game and archers as good as soldiers brandishing spears and shields. However, the arena changed again and there is a cave you should avoid.
Unlike other opponents you’ve encountered in the Arena, this one the one you want to stay close to instead of keeping their distance. He can effectively deal a ton of damage with his bow, so you should use Shield Breaker to rid him of his shield and let the fight be even.
He is quite agile and can perform spinning air attacks where light weapons come in handy. Using fire or poison is also a great choice to passively deal damage even when you are gathering during combat.
