Power types


Arcane is one of the five types of energy that generate raw power for a trap mechanism.

The other power types are:

Performance


An arcane mechanism is noted for having the highest amount of mystic power of the mechanisms available in the same area.

An arcane mechanism often (not always) has what seems to be an insufficient amount of raw power.

Some arcane mechanisms, however, simply add a substantial amount (20+) mystic power to a nice amount of raw power for the region.

The performance of an arcane mechanism can vary widely, even among the ghosts that require a high-mystic setup. Using this type of trap mechanism may surprise you, either by catching a relatively high percentage of the normal ghosts in a given area, or by failing to trap the majority of the ghosts that require a high-mystic setup to be caught.

Using an arcane mechanism needs to be seen as a long-term investment, since its performance in the short-run is so very variable.

Arcane-powered setups also sometimes need to have a settling-down period, or burn-in, before they can be used successfully. This is another aspect of the longer-term nature of hunting with an arcane setup.

Arcane mechanisms


The following mechanisms use arcane power.

To compare all of the stats of the arcane mechanisms, you can use the mechanisms compared page, and sort first by power type (so that you can see all the arcane mechanisms together) and then review the rest of the stats to see what might work best to help you meet your goal.

Contracts


Contracts that work specifically with arcane mechanisms are:

You can also use all of the contracts that are designated as "magic circle contracts", since those contracts can be used with all mechanism types.
