These Cups will present a variety of new additions to the Arena World Championship, including both The Nokhudon Proving Grounds and, for the first time ever, Evokers will be entering the competition. Players will be battling for both the champion of their series and the clan’s greatest warrior in The Nokhudon Proving Grounds.

Below are the details you need to get in and watch all the action:
