Arcana Cards in Vampire Survivors are fantastic gameplay items that can alter your runs. If you’ve been finding the game too tough to beat, Arcanas will help you become more powerful. The game offers quite a few of them too.

    How to Unlock the Arcana Mechanic

    You can’t any Arcana at the start of the game. In fact, the mechanic itself isn’t even available yet. To unlock the Arcana mechanic, you’ll need to collect a relic called the Randomazzo.

    The Randomazzo can be found in Gallo Tower, the fourth stage of the game. It’s located to the far north of where you start. When you begin a run in this stage, you’ll see a green arrow that points north on the screen. Follow the direction of the arrow and you’ll find the Randomazzo.

    Obtaining the Randomazzo in Vampire Survivors.

    Once picked up, the Arcana mechanic will be unlocked. You’ll also obtain your first Arcana card, the Sarabande of Healing.

    Every Arcana Card in Vampire Survivors

    There are currently 21 Arcana cards in Vampire Survivors. Each one is associated with a roman numeral.

    There are two main ways to obtain Arcana cards in Vampire Survivors. However, there are two cards that have unique unlock procedures.

    The first one is the card you obtain when you pick up the Randomazzo. Another card is unlocked when you defeat the final boss in the Cappella Magna, the game’s final main stage.

    You unlock some cards when you play as certain characters and reach level 99. You unlock the rest of the cards by exceeding the 31-minute mark at various stages.
