The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is back after a long slumber, and the latest version of the game brings so much new stuff we can't even fathom where to begin.

There are brand new trials, a season pass, adventure mode, achievements, challenges, it's hard to wrap your head around. So let's take it one step at a time, with the Arena mode.

The arena mode is the big new mode which will see you go against free players in a 4 player free for all, filled with projectiles and weaponry flying about. It's pretty glorious.

Here we'll lay down the tips you need to clear through your first few battles, but as you go, upgrading your skills - and your literal physical abilities - will be necessary.

The third party

So, you want to win an Arena battle? You won't like this. You are going to have to abuse the fact that there are four players on the field, all fighting one another.

Just jump into someone else's battle. Start wailing on them when they're already directing their attacks elsewhere. If you want to win, this is the way to do it.

Of course, don't just let another player attack you, either. You'll need to be wise about your positioning, and you will have to fight back, or try and get them contained in enemy hitboxes, before you begin jumping into a gang brawl.

Don't forget the basics of the combat, either. Dodge out of the way of obvious enemy attacks, and strike back as often as possible. Avoiding everything will be impossible, as real players don't have much attack wind up, just be sensible and predict their moves while remembering that they are limited in the same way you are.

Pick out the guy with the lowest health, finish him off, and repeat. A one-on-one fight is more often than not only decided by who has the biggest damage.
