Arcane Monster is a Game Mode where players with this symbol have the ability to become an Arcane Monster player with a full Arcane spell book equipped. The power of Arcane Monster grants the user's Arcane spells more damage, healing from Arcane damage, and level 4 stone resistance.
The Arcane Monster was released in the game with the patch of January 4, 2020. With this Game Mode, players who have the next to their name or seen when their name is right-clicked in chat (previously represented by ) receive an enhanced Book of Arcane which JMods (Jagex Moderators ) had access to in the original game. It was a challenge to beat a JMod and on victory, the winner also acquired the books power for themselves. That challenge has been transferred to Arcanists 2, wherein you can challenge the current guardians of the Arcane Monster (Usman899, Siggy/Sigtinius, Quinn, tot, MileyyHannah, or TheBandit) to a battle to obtain the power of Arcane for yourself.
The Arcane Monster starts with 500HP at the start of the game. The power of Arcane Monster grants the user's Arcane spells more damage, healing from Arcane damage, and level 4 stone resistance. The one use Familiar also disables all other full spellbook familiars in the game, whether they've been activated or not, for a price of 100HP. Summon Imps brings forth 100HP minions instead of the regular 10HP. Moreover, if Original Spells Only mode isn't enabled, the Arcane Monster has access to Summon Dragon Egg, the Arcane Dragon (250HP), and Arcane Mist.
Typical ways to beat an Arcane Monster include bringing Imp Destruction to counter their Imps, Arcane Tower as the Monster would have to get in Arcane Flash range to cast Arcane Fountain (an Arcane Flash but one that specifically de-towers an Arcane Tower, and terrain destruction spells or stalling spells like Static Ball. It is highly recommended that you do not bring a full spellbook as your familiar will get disabled.
