Arcana Guide

Arcana in New World is a Crafting Trade Skill that is used for crafting Magical Weapons, Potions, elemental infusions, and Tincutres. Arcana is however one of the more difficult trade skills to level due to the requirements. This Arcana Guide will tell you everything you need to know about getting the required ingredients and the quickest way to level it from level 0-50.

Quickest Way to Level Arcana

Arcana Leveling 0-5
The easiest potion which you can craft for leveling Arcana are Weak Health Potions, which require:

- 1x Tier 1 Medicinal Reagents
- 1 Water

Find and harvest Bullrush plants next to a lake or riverbed to get Bulrush Cob. Harvest and gather 91 Bulrush Cob and 91 Water to craft a total of 91 Weak Health Potions to get to Arcana level 5.

Leveling 5–50
The easiest potion for leveling Arcana from level 5-50 is the Common Focus Potion which requires:

- 1x Tier 2 Water Reagents
- 1 Water

Tier 2 Water Reagents include either Water Rivercress Stems, Motes, or Toadpots. The easiest of these three ingredients to obtain is the Water Motes, which you can acquire by harvesting all the rivercress and springstone you see along the river leading southwest out of Everfall. Note: You will need at least level 30 harvesting to loot Magical Plants, at least level 50 mining to gather Alchemy Stones (Springstone). You will need a total of 441 Water Motes and 441 Water to make 441 Common Focus Potions.
