What is Arcana in Honor of Kings

In Honor of Kings, the Arcana is a mechanic that helps the players boost their hero’s attributes during the game. The players can select up to 30 unique Arcana for each hero from the Arcana selection screen. There are mainly three types of Arcana present in the game, Red, Purple, and Blue.

The red arcana helps to boost the attack abilities of the heroes, the purple Arcana helps to boost the health restoration abilities, and the blue arcana boosts the defense abilities. In the 30 slots of Arcana, the players can have ten Arcana from the three types.

Understanding how Arcana works

Each of the three types of Arcana mentioned above has eight different sub-types for boosting their abilities. The sub-types are as follows:

  • Attack
  • Life
  • Defense
  • Function
  • Lifesteal
  • Attack Speed
  • Critical Damage
  • Piercing

The players can upgrade all eight sub-types of arcana in the game. Higher-level Arcana grants a bigger boost to the hero’s abilities during the game. However, the overall performance buff depends on the combination of Arcana the player has chosen for that particular hero. For example, if a player has chosen more attack, piercing, and critical damage Arcana in the Arcana archive, the hero will get a higher buff in the attack attributes.

The choice of Arcana can have a massive impact on the player’s early match strategy and gameplay, as it can compensate for the low primary attributes of the hero at the beginning of the game. However, the arcana selection depends solely on the playstyle of each player. However, using Arcana does not disrupt the game’s balance between the hero’s abilities but only provides an advantage over the enemies if it is used wisely.

How to unlock and upgrade Arcana in Honor of Kings

The only way to unlock Arcana slots in Honor of Kings is by leveling up in the game. When starting the game, each player will be given nine arcana slots, and they must unlock the other 21 slots gradually while leveling up. However, unlike unlocking Arcana slots, the players can unlock Arcana in several different ways. Arcana can be purchased from the shop using gold, diamond, or Arcana fragments and can also be earned through achievements, events, and missions.
