Gotta agree with Garret on this one. I'm a non VIP player, Level 105, got 4 skins (TF, Manipulator, TP and BQ) and I've managed to achieve rank 1 in arena twice already. My pre choice team is Halberd Master, TF, Sorceress, Nine Tail Fox and Sacabbardless Blade... Usually I manage to stay between 5th and 20th place in arena everyday.
