I'm ego 1680 on my highest character, and enjoying Coop missions and glad we can play all of them . But how do you play the Co-op Arenas? Do you really need to buy a DLC pack to play all of them? Or are the devs going to allow us to play them without DLC? Just need a clear understanding on how to play them.

Also i was curious is Gualanee arkbreak on of the co-op areans? I didn't see it on the list, but another interesting thing, i never notice anyone talking about the co-op areans. usually people are talking about everything involving defiance, but never anything about them.

Co-ops are broken down by EGO.

Standard co-op may be played by anyone.
Advanced Co-op requires at least one person in the group to be EGO 3k or higher.
Expert requires at least one player being 5k or higher.

There are non dlc co-ops, i.e. Motherlode, Liberate the Lost, etc. Anyone can start as long as EGO allows.

As for starting them, they will be in your matchmaking menu.

At Lighthouse there are the Castithan arenas that require at least one person with that dlc to start.
At Iron Demon, Shondus, and Overpass there are the Gunslinger arenas. These require at least one player that owns the Gunslinger dlc to start.

Gulanee Arkbreak is not a co-op. It is an arkbreak. Anybody can enter these, but it takes an Arkbreaker dlc owner to drop the spike to bring it down.

Those are all DLC arenas.

Fallen_Aingeal told you where their in-game locations are. In order to do them you need the correct DLC. The ones marked "Caste Arena" require DLC 1 (Castithan) for you to go into by
yourself.

The ones marked "Arena" require DLC 4 (Gunslinger) to do yourself.

However if you find a player who owns that DLC then they can group with you, then when they enter the Arena it will give you the option to join them. Of course if you don't own the DLC, then you are just doing them for fun, because you can't use most of the reward gear.

The Gulanee Arkbreaks are minor Arkbreaks. They can be called down at minor arkfall sites using Arkbattery/spikes. You have a chance of it bieing Gulanee but can't guarantee it.

sorry i misread and didn't understand. Gotcha. Well that sucks, i never understood why they would make everything else in match making free, and make co-op arenas paid. I understand a company has to make money, but this is foolish. The only thing well my gf has the credit card so the only i am getting is a dlc pack or whatever so i can get a sword. Unless i can get a DLC pack that allows me to get a sword and allow me to play all co-op arenas.?

That's the DLC pack known as the Season Pass.

Dlc 1 is the castithan pack it adds Castithan arenas and has chargeblades for sale in the vendor.

As for the arenas in matchmaking, that is because people who own the DLCs requested it be added to matchmaking so they have an easier way to ready up for them. Besides it is fair to have all co-ops in matchmaking so those who meet the requirements can easily do them. Why should it be hard for us to go into something we paid for, just because you don't want to see content you can't do? Besides they do list prerequisites for how to unlock content, and all you had to do, if it isn't shown in game, was search the forum for arenas, to find out that they are paid DLC.

Heck the question was just asked and answered in another thread, 3 days ago. so it wouldn't even take much searching.

You seem to have miss the whole point to why i said co-op arenas should be free, so I'm not going to argue with you or enlighten you about how things should work in MMO games. So on that note, thanks for the information.

Yes make them free so the paid DLC is MORE useless. I normally agree with you but sorry, I can't on this.

What should have been done was to leave them out of matchmaking like they originally were, since readying up for an arena in matchmaking still does not team you with other players.
