I think all the 3 options the arena offer to you will reward you with exp if you win. It doesn't matter what rank the players are at.

Only those are available/offered that are in honor range and therefore give XP.

That's the plan as Leander stated earlier no guild members.

This arena update is worse than I thought. Not only do I not get to choose who to attack, but the targets I'm assigned are ALL ranked significantly above me (10,000-30,000 honor above me). Like, it would be cool if I stood a chance of actually winning the arena fights. I don't. So I am essentially forced to keep failing fights until, by some miracle, I get assigned a target I can actually beat. Instead of being able to do the 10 daily arena battles while I quest, it's either an all-day affair, or I just don't bother with the hassle.

I choose option two. Arena isn't worth the hassle any more for the pathetic amount of XP it gives. The arena fights would need to be worth like 3x as much for me to care enough to try again. (then I'd get around 475k XP per fight instead of 158k)

Alternatively, revert the arena update. Otherwise... RIP arena.

Edit: I had to lose two arena fights (100% chance of loss vs all 3 opponents) before I finally was offered an opponent on my third try who I didn't have a 100% chance of failure against. This is terrible.

As I said in the earlier post, this new arena took away your freedom in planning for a nice strategy to either advance in the HoF or to get extra XP.

This isn't just about convenience. It's literally impossible for me to climb or gain XP. I'm literally stuck here forced into fights I'm guaranteed to lose, with no way to go up or down, since everybody ranked below me is inactive in the arena.

Well, the good news is I'm not being forced to attack people with 30,000 honor more than me any more. Now I get a nice set of choices that vary from being below me in rank to a little above me in rank. Thank you Playa for fixing this.
