Said to be the foundation of the world, the Arcana Stones contain a mysterious power only given to warriors who prove themselves to be strong enough. This is the main goal of the Player.
To obtain this power, a warrior must defeat each Master Guardian of the respective Arcana Stone. There are nine in total with a Master Guardian for each.
As the game progresses and the Slayer accumulates Arcana, villagers and Veddel will take note of expansions in the Player's power. Defeating each Arcana will also unlock a new area for use, leading up to the next Master Guardian.
All of the Arcana Stones are situated within Arayd Temple.
