The Circle of Blood Arena (also called "Blade's Edge Arena") is an arena located in Blade's Edge Mountains, north of Thunderlord Stronghold. It is an ogre-style arena.

This arena is rectangular shaped. The starting areas for both sides are on opposite corners. A bridge spans the middle of the arena with ramps on both ends. Under the bridge is a pit and 2 pillars. Deceased players may watch the fight from the pit. In addition, there are two platforms on each side of the bridge which may be reached by running across the ropes leading from the bridge to them.

The pillars, in addition to the platforms, can be strategically used in order to escape the line of sight of casters. Healers must be aware when their teammates are behind these pillars.

Like all arenas, after five minutes, two Shadow Sight power ups would appear on the platforms that let the user see stealthed and invisible characters; however, it also increases the damage taken by 5%.
