Arcanists 2 Wiki
Arcane Book.png

The Book of Arcane is the most basic spell book, with no level 3 spells, and no familiar (until v3.5). It is also one of the only spell books with offensive spells that cannot harm the caster (except for Imps' self-destruct).


Icon Spell Tier Type Number of Charges Initial Charge Time/Recharge Maximum Damage Description
Arcane Arrow.png Arcane Arrow 1 Arrow Infinite 0/1 10x4 Arcane Fires four homing arrows.
Arcane Bomb.png Arcane Bomb 1 Bomb/Arrow Infinite 0/1 10x4 Arcane A bomb which explodes as a 10 damage Arcane Flash and then releases three Arcane Arrows which always start by going slightly upwards from the explosion.
Arcane Tower.png Arcane Tower 1 Tower Infinite 0/5 25hp Initial: 25hp. Maximum: 100hp. Buffed by Arcane damage. Will "gate" with the caster. Absorbs glyphs.
Arcane Energiser.png Arcane Energiser 1 Personal Infinite 0/5 N/A Powers up each part of the caster's Arcane attacks by 5 damage for 5 turns.

Arcane Portal.png Arcane Portal 1 Targeted Infinite 0/5 N/A Creates a two-way portal which will teleport one player, small minion (no larger than a player), or small object (projectiles such as a Comet, Meteor, or an expanded Mega Boulder, Flame Walls and Thunder Shock are also excluded) per turn. Only one per player may be active at a time.
Summon Imps.png Summon Imps 1 Arcane Minion Infinite 0/5 N/A Summons 3 Imps. Imps gain hp through Arcane damage (like Arcane Arrows or Arcane Flash) to a maximum of 250hp. Without Imp Destruction, they will just self-destruct and release all their energy.
Imp Destruction.png Imp Destruction 1 Targeted/Arena Infinite 0/1 Total health of all imps (theoretical max 6000 or 9000 with Arcane Energizer) All imps in the game first do an extremely low power arcane flash, then are converted into a number of arcane arrows proportional to each's individual health that converge at the target location. Unfortunately, they perish in the process.

Arcane Flash.png Arcane Flash 1 Personal Infinite 0/1 15 Arcane Release a circle of energy around you with high knockback and land destruction.
Summon Dragon Egg.png Summon Dragon Egg 1 Arcane Minion Infinite 0/5 N/A Summons a dragon egg that can hatch into different stages of a dragon depending on its current health. Hatches into a hatchling if between 1HP-24HP, a Baby Dragon if between 25HP-149HP, and into a Flame Dragon, Storm Dragon, or Frost Dragon if it has 150HP. It can also hatch into a Steam Dragon if killed by a Clockwork Bomb.


Unstable Portal.png The Arcane Familiar is the Unstable Portal. It was added with the patch on December 21, 2020, as a much requested change because the Book of Arcane was the only book without a familiar.

Familiar specific changes:

  • Every other level (levels 1, 3 & 5) increases minion summon limit by 1 per level to a maximum of 7 slots.
  • Level 1: Learn the spell Little Devil. Little Devil's cooldown is decreased by 1 for each Arcane familiar level you have.
  • Level 2: Learn the spell Arcane Mist.
  • Level 3: Arcane Tower starts with 50 hp.
  • Level 5: Arcane Energizer is permanent (once used). Arcane Tower starts with 75 hp.
