Arcane Focus

Your focus on magic gives you a glimpse of total clarity, allowing you to cast your next spell without cost. Also permanently increases the effectiveness of your mana shield, and reduces the cast time lost from damage.

Skill Usage

Arcane Focus is a spell with two different effects:

- When Arcane Focus is used, the next spell that you cast will consume no mana. This effect lasts 15 seconds until it expires, or when a spell is cast. This does not apply to skills that do not use mana. It is often combined with AoE spells, or spells from the Arcane skill branch which take up a lot of mana.

- Upon learning this spell, you permanently reduce the amount of cast time lost from taking damage, and increase effectiveness with your mana shield.

It is unlocked by Mage in the Arcane skill tree, being a necessary prerequisite for Bind Elemental and Arcane Might, while requiring at least one point in Harvest Mana to unlock. It is similar to the Priest skill Divine Clarity, but unlike Arcane Focus, it makes a skill cast instantly.


  • Due to it's high cooldown, Arcane Focus is often used at the start of boss battles to cast an AoE skill such as Fire Wall or Blizzard, which consume a high amount of mana. This is because it allows you to start the fight throwing a heavy punch to your opponent for free without losing any mana, also allowing you to reuse Arcane Focus sooner once the boss fight exceeds 3 minutes.
  • A second point in Arcane Focus beyond Lv. 1 is considered optional, as it only further decreases the cast time lost from taking damage by 25%. You already gain the additional 10% effectiveness for Mana Shield with a single point invested into the skill.
