It's the only unit that takes part in all missions. Arcaena is durable, can deal significant damage and her special skill allows you to pierce through enemy armor. This is an effective way to eliminate any damage reduction bonuses. You can upgrade this ability and increase the bonus from 50% to 100% (the total cost is 6 gems)! Arcaena is treated as a range unit of the Elves faction, and thus she receives movement bonus when traveling through forests. When placed on walls or towers, her attack power will increase. She has 3 movement points and an attack range of 3 fields.
- Arcaena's greatest power is the ability to use Potions, Scrolls or Poisons. This way, she can boost her attacks or defend ally units. You can increase magic range or number of available spells, use more Scrolls and Potions. The latter will come in handy later on, when you need to heal, eliminate hostile units and reinforce your allies. Furthermore, the development of this feature is shared among all Elven heroes. Sylvius also uses this upgrade and you don't have to purchase it for every hero separately.
- Upgrade Arcaena's skills and she will become a very useful warrior. You can increase the armor piercing bonus and boost her stats. Once Arcaena reaches the highest level, she will have 130 health points and will deal 80 damage. It's also good to increase additional gold that you get after every mission. the Marksmanship skill increases damage dealt from lower terrain, but it takes time to unlock this skill.
