Colosseums

caelidcolosseum
The practice had died out by the age of King Consort Radagon, but remains of the arenas where ritual combat took place can still be found in every land.

Colosseums are special Locations in Elden Ring. They are large arenas placed around the Lands Between. Players can access the Colosseums and engage in Arena Style PvP matches for up to 6 players.

According to the Ritual Sword Talisman, the Colosseums were once arenas where ritualistic battles took place. Combats were held to honor the Erdtree but these rituals are no longer practiced.

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Colosseum Locations

There are a total of 3 Colosseums in Elden Ring. 

Locations:

  1. Limgrave: Large structure found in the north. Follow the path north of Warmaster's Shack. [Elden Ring Map Link]
  2. Caelid: The most northern part of main Caelid. Can be reached by using the Deep Siofra Well. [Elden Ring Map Link]
  3. Leyndell, Royal Capital: The Colosseum in Leyndell can be seen immediately when you enter the city from East Capital Rampart. [Elden Ring Map Link]

After activating them for the first time, players can reach them from the Roundtable Hold. There is a statue located next to the fireplace that can be interacted with to access the Colosseums.

      fun fact: the hype at this mode despite the game still having peer2peer pvp is objective proof that hype is the enemy of progress in videogame design and balance

      • Anonymous

        From makes phenomenal single player modes, but holy crap are they absolute dog poop at designing PvP. It is completely ridiculous how behind they are in development. Matchmaking? Problems, probably because their hamfisted design makes players not want to play. Connectivity? Problems, seems to me that whomever has the most peanut butter-esc connection is going to win. Balancing? Any kind of defensive capability is shunned, yet one shot full autism builds are welcomed. From's no better than EA at this point.

          If you say heals are dumb, thousands will hate you, if you say heals are great, thousands will hate you, this perfectly demonstrates how imperfect mankind truly is. The game designers are imperfect for either allowing heals, or for restricting the use of the flask. The players are imperfect for their differing views and tastes, in which there are no right answers to be found, and they are also imperfect for their hatred, which brews in their minds and can be weaponized just to make someone's day worse over a mere video game. Perhaps, we should not be angry to lose to someone who heals, but instead we should be thankful that they have given us a more challenging fight, making the victory all the sweeter, after all, these fights lack consequence.

              Came back for the expansion, checked out pvp again and it still sucks a$$ beyond belief. Literally YouTube videos how to animation cancel, no fun builds, no respect. Just sweaty meta players everywhere. I hope from soft never attempts pvp again.

                Such a shame they didn't add AI support since they already have AI tarnished. Would have been fun to be able to play this in the future to duel randomized bot builds. But can only find duel builds with the same 8 people and same 2 builds. Imagine what this could have been. Hopefully they'll come back to it at some point.

                  Colosseum matchmaking is completely dead. Yet you still get invaded all the time. Seems like all people want to do is gank or invade people who don't even want to do pvp.

                    1.10 kinda ruined pvp. If you hit and stagger someone with a spear, hammer, etc or anything smaller, they can immediately hit you while you’re in recovery. Hitting someone with my mace means I get face stabbed twice by off hand thrust sword. I’ve even been moonveiled after hitting someone with a hammer. There’s also a glitch where players frequently have passive poise against hammers and even great hammers. And the hyper armor is absurd now! I’ve won entire duels where my opponent was never once poise broken! And I main hammers and great hammers! Oh yeah and great swords can hyper armor great hammers. I only play because I loved the game so much before 1.10 ruined pvp.

                      Duel is the only active mode too bad it's filled with the same copy/paste sweat builds, I'd rather invade gank squads than play against that.

                        I feel like there needs to be a way to abort a battle in, let's say, the first five-ten seconds after spawning in, if not at any point entirely. For those situations where you know you won't have a fun fight and instead will be mercilessly overpowered by dual thrusting weapons with absurd poise

                          Either the entire community abandon duels entirely and do combat ordeals, or this is gonna end just like ds3's hollow arena.

                          Like, dislike, comment, praise, trashtalk, do whatever you want but the fact of the matter is: it happened to battle of stoicism in ds1, happened to hollow arena in ds3 and it is happening yet again in colosseums, in the EXACT same manner. Seriously, duels belongs anywhere but here.

                            Pvp still sucks bad. Meta builds, lag, phantom range, disrespectful players, this game is worse than league of legends in pvp.

                              Why, just why did they have to shoehorn a duel mode in here? Ffs, isn't the entirety of the lands between big enough to make duel arenas?

                              The dlc arena better have a boss arena. I don't care if there's no rewards, i would rather fight all the shardbearers at once than face these game-ruining sweatlords.

                                    Would be badass if we could just co-op against random enemies/bosses in the arena.

                                    Or even add a roguelike dungeon that's randomized like in Bloodborne.

                                      An offline version would be really cool too, sort of like the Great-Jar trial in front of the Caelid colosseum. Could load random NPC duelists when offline, just like it does in the quest

                                            Why is no one doing any fun builds? No cosplays, no non-meta weapons, no creativity. All i encounter is powerstanced straight swords and carian piercer spammers.
                                            This had potential to be fun, but the playerbase just decided that it shouldnt.

I just came back today to see that in a 2v2, 2 of them were powerstancing lances, 1 was powerstancing greathammer and I was dual wielding 2 ultra greatsword... The meta is so braindead everybody just spam Jump + L1 and everybody is 2 shotting everybody else lmao this is ridiculous, this is the most unfun pvp souls right after DS1 (which is so broken and unpolished that not using exploits and glitches + huge disadvantage)

                                                              DS2's pvp is awesome, DS3 is a bit samey but at least it's more refined

                                                                In theory i like the colosseums and have had some fun doing them but unless From is committed to working out some of the kinks in pvp its kinda hard to really love arena fights. One big issue is 2 v 2 matches quickly become gank fests where one person gets ganged up on b4 their partner can spawn back in, leading to a pretty nasty loop. I'm also not exactly sure how successful the match making is for putting you against people closer to your skill level. I've been paired against the same person (or people) multiple times and its really not fun getting set against the same person who spammed magic missible XL or double vykes spear over and over. I dont mind losing, ive had fun losing in matches that felt at least a little balanced, but what I do mind is getting flattened over and over again by someone who has a spreadsheet for perfecting insta procing bleed and frost

                                                                      Is it worth trying to find matches early in the game or should I wait until my player level is up in the 150 range or higher?

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        The caelid one crashed my game on launch and nowadays is completely dead. I waited for like 20 minutes on meta lv 125-135 characters then gave up
                                                                        Limgrave one is still the best

                                                                          • Anonymous

I joined a free for all 6 people match and when someone started spamming Waves of Gold, we all ganked him. It was glorious to see all these enemies unite for a common goal, even though right when he fell we proceeded to fight each other instantly

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

All combatants are too dumb to usually band together to stop the player and they runaway and refill health and get kills. This is gonna have to be nerfed now smh.

                                                                                    It’s becoming apparent that the solution to losses and a bad connection is just closing the game.
                                                                                    If there is a ranking system, hopefully it’s just total points not losses. If not this is going to turn into a game closing fight system.

                                                                                      Also something has changed in the i frames to make them much more generous to colossal weapon users which makes almost every fight nothing but colossal swords.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        Also the free for alls are dominated by high damage spells, fast rolling and running away till you catch an easy kill. Hopefully the game of the year award will encourage some serious networking do overs

                                                                                            • Anonymous

If the arena rules want the players buff then would be a time of invulnerability as in invasions.

(there's no cover in the arena)

No idea how the host got inside or how they summoned me from so far away, but the arena looks cool. Has this happened to anyone else?
