Also have the quest inform you that you may practice there as much as you want as long as are in the limits of the following restrictions.
The Arena Restrictions
Army must be less than 400 rating.
Army must be 30 units or less.
No mages, dragons or elite units can enter accept the users hero.
Hero must be level 20 or below. (For Hero unit to enter, a player can have a higher level hero but the hero cant enter)
No resources are awarded for match.
No wins/loss stats will be awarded to users profile. (Other than 1 quest reward)
The only problem i have with this idea is you would not be able to practice with heroes or elites, which are a vital part of most army compositions, even at low strength values
