Siren Arena Overview
The Siren Arena is located in the Northern Part of Reekwater in an elite area called the Spire of Melpomene. There is a Fast Travel location just south of the arena. This is an end game arena intended for a group of 5 to complete. Upon entering this arena you will face the Lost level 66 named boss, The Siren Queen. Like the other Arena’s and Expeditions in New World you will need a tuning orb to access the Arena.The tuning orb will be consumed upon entering the Arena, and only one player in the group needs to have the orb for the group to enter.
How to obtain the Siren Tuning Orb in New World
You can obtain the Siren Tuning Orb for free one time by completing the questline that begins with the quest “An Expanding Threat.” You can obtain this quest from Kinnao Onizuka in Reekwater. Follow the questline throughout the quest arc until you reach the final quest called “The Queen is Dead (Elite).” The Queen is Dead Elite quest will send you to an Elite area, so you will need to have a group in order to complete this quest. In order to obtain the tuning Orb you will need to kill some of the Siren Queen’s Lieutenants. One of them will drop the Siren Tuning Orb.
Arena tuning orbs also have a low-chance drop rate from Elite AI enemies in Malevolence, Forecastle Drift, Spires of Melpomene, and Eternal Pool.
You can also craft the Siren Tuning Orb utilizing the stonecutting profession. In order to craft the Tuning Orb you must have stonecutting level 50 or above, and use a stonecutting table that is tier 4 or higher. There is a threshold of crafting 5 orbs at a time. If you craft 5 orbs at a time you will have to wait 7 days to craft them again.
Recommended Consumables & Trophies
The Siren Queen is a Lost mob type. Therefore, the following consumables (in addition to Health, Regeneration, and Mana Potions) are recommended when fighting in this Arena to help you maximize your damage output.
In order to maximize damage output for a Lost mob type you would want to utilize weapons that deal nature, ice, or strike damage. Slotting an Amber into your weapon (except life staff) will also help you maximize your DPS against this mob type.
Utilizing a weapon that has the Lost Bane Perk on it can help increase your DPS in this arena as well.
You would want to stay away from weapons that deal void and thrust damage as these damage types are weak against the Lost mob type.
Upon entering the arena you will be facing The Siren Queen. The main mechanic of this fight are the spears that the Siren Queen will throw into the ground. These spears will deal AOE damage, and will eventually fill up the entire arena if you do not kill her fast enough.
However, there is a way to remove the spears from the arena. The Siren Queen will shoot a glowing orb at a player, and if the player drags that orb across one of the spears it will dissipate.
A good way to deal with this boss is to have your Tank pull her to the left side of the arena against the wall and DPS her down there. This way you can better manage the AOE spears that are on the battlefield.
In summary, Tank gains aggro, DPS does damage and the Siren Queen Throws Spears. If your group has enough DPS you can take her down easily without the spears covering the battlefield. If they cover the battlefield use the orbs to dissipate the spears. Continue to DPS the boss and be aware of her melee attacks.
