The Arena of Wisdom Vault of Tartaros is in the War’s Den region. In this Immortals Fenyx Rising guide, we’ll show you how to find the Vault Entrance location, solve the dungeon’s puzzles, find and open the Epic Chest, and collect Zeus’s Lightning on your way out.

How to find the Arena of Wisdom Vault entrance

Immortals Fenyx Rising’s Arena of Wisdom vault is easy to reach from the God of War statue: Head east a short distance to find enemies patrolling around a rift. Defeat them and drop through the rift to access the vault.

How to clear the Arena of Wisdom Vault of Tartaros

This vault tests you on your combat prowess, rather than your ability to solve puzzles. Make sure to bring plenty of whatever potions you might need. Attempt this vault only after you have upgraded your weapons and armor.

  1. Cross the platforms to arrive at the checkpoint. There is a healing orb just to the side, in case you need it after the battle outside.
  2. Pull the lever to the right of the checkpoint to open the doors ahead.
  3. Enter the arena. You need to dispatch three enemy waves here to activate three crystal switches on the far side of the chamber.
  4. You are attacked by a host of common animal foes, primarily lions and bears. Take them one at a time, as possible, since they are easy to defeat in that manner. In the third wave, watch out for the addition of two Gorgon enemies, which you should target first so they can’t hit you from a distance with projectiles.
  5. As you clear each wave, the crystal switches light and finally the doors open on the far end of the arena.

The Epic Chest

After you defeat the regular enemies, there is an optional battle you can complete for an Epic Chest.

  1. Pull the lever along the arena’s left side. Translucent walls lock you inside the area.
  2. Fight a new enemy wave, which consists of chickens. None of them are strong alone, but they like to flock around you and that can add up to a lot of damage in a hurry. Use area attacks, such as Ares’s Wrath, to clear them when they get too close, and finish them up in a hurry.
  3. Once you defeat the enemies, pass through the opening near the lever and glide along the gusting platforms to reach the platform.
  4. Enter the room and open the Epic Chest to obtain the Molten Fragment.

Zeus’s Lightning

  1. Return to the arena area and head through the opening beyond the purple crystal switches. Ascend along the platforms to cross the wide gap.
  2. Climb the stairs to claim Zeus’s Lightning and exit the vault.
