Arcanists is a multiplayer strategy game where you get to design and train your very own Arcanist, and then compete in the Arcane Tournament! Every rated game you win earns you more wands, which you can use to expand your spellbook, increasing your flexibility and power.

Battle with players from all over the world in six different arenas, each with their own dangers and strategies to perfect. Personalise your character by gaining achievements and choose from over 1 million combinations.


1. How do I change my costume?

Enter the 'Character Creation' screen from the main menu and select what you want to wear. More costumes are unlocked as you gain Achievements.

2. How do I change my spellbook?

As you earn wands from playing ranked games against other players you will be able to purchase more spells from the 'Spell Selection' screen. A new book costs 5 wands, and spells cost between 2 and 3 wands apiece.

3. How do I earn more wands?

You earn the most wands by playing ranked games against more players at once. More risk equals more rewards; however, if you resign from a game before it has finished, you will not receive any wands, so make sure you keep playing until the end!

4. Is there anywhere to test my spells before I use them?

At the end of the tutorial there is a sandbox where you have access to your character's current spellbook. Make sure to try out your spells before you head into battle.

5. I keep on losing games; what should I do?

Practise with your spells in the sandbox or play friendly games to gain experience before you enter the arena.
