Battlefields are fights against special notorious monsters unique to that area. Most battlefields have several copies allowing more than one group of people to use the battlefield, however, it is still limited. There are many types of battlefields that all can be entered in different ways. Usually, being successful rewards you in someway. This can include items and gil from a chest or the notorious monster(s), experience points, and mission or quest progress.

The most common type of Battlefield is probably the Burning Circle Notorious Monster (BCNM) fight, presumably named after the entrance areas, which is a 3~18 person fight in a special arena designed specifically for that purpose. This classification has grown to encompass BSNMs, KSNMs, KCNMs, and HKCNMs. These fights can be entered using special orbs, which are obtained from Shami in exchange for Beastmen's Seals, Kindred's Seals, Kindred's Crests, and High Kindred's Crests, respectively. BSNMs are level capped, but the other forms of fight are not.

Another type of Battlefield is the ENM. ENMs were introduced with the Chains of Promathia expansion, and take place in the related zones. They are similar to BCNMs in their format except a key item (listed on the page, and typically obtained from some kind of mini-quest) is used instead of an orb, and that mini-quest can be repeated 5 game days from the time the key item is consumed. The same mini-quest is often used for multiple fights in the same area, so choosing to do one ENM may mean that you cannot do others until you can do the mini-quest again. ENMs can also be level capped like Category:BSNMs, but unlike any kind of BCNM, they reward players with Experience Points.
