Where to Find the Arena in Assassin's Creed Odyssey
The Arena in Assassin's Creed Odyssey is found on the far-East side of Pephka, at the very bottom-right hand corner of the map. It can be found at the top of Pirate Point, to the East of Messara. You can technically go there at any point, but the level restrictions mean you'll struggle to get there before you're at least level 20. You probably shouldn't bother to go before then, especially considering that the earliest opponent you can fight is level 22.
How to Start the "They Just Want Cruelty" Quest
The quest "They Just Want Cruelty" can be started either by picking up a randomly-occurring note off any defeated mercenary, or by simply getting to the Arena. It's a multi-phase quest in which you fight the five champions of the Arena, and will take you all the way to level 50. You can also choose to fight random mercenaries.
