How To Get Ars Arcanum In Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

You can get Ars Arcanum by going to your Meld Menu and combining certain Command Skills, such as Blitz and Aerial Slam.

Ars Arcanum is a rare single target, multi-hit Command Skill that can only be melded and equipped by Ventus.

Obtaining Ars Arcanum

If you don’t use the Blitz + Aerial Slam combination when Melding, you only have either a 5% or 10% chance of getting Ars Arcanum depending on what other combination you use.

To get Ars Arcanum, you’ll have to combine the following Command Skills as Ventus—as well as trigger the “Rare Command Skill” prompt in some of them:

We recommend using the Blitz + Aerial Slam combination—considering that it is the only combination that gives you a 100% chance of getting Ars Arcanum.

Although, since both Blitz and Aerial Slam have higher max levels and take longer to level up, feel free to use the Slot Edge + Quick Blitz combination instead—especially if you have quick access to loading save states.

For instance, you can buy Slot Edge for 700 Munny and Quick Blitz for 100 Munny in the Command Shop—then level them up so you can use them to meld Ars Arcanum.

Considering Ars Arcanum has a longer Reload Time than most Command Skills, it’ll benefit the most from your character having Attack Haste.

This Command Skill is best used when hunting high-HP mobs or bosses.

You can even use this skill when farming multiple enemies, though it won’t be as effective as other Command Skills like Treasure Raid  or Wind Raid .

Ars Arcanum (QTE)

Ars Arcanum also has a QTE (Press) which, if performed well, will allow you to string together high-damage, follow-up combo attacks against your enemies.

Quick tip—you can just spam after using the skill if you don’t want to miss the QTE. Happy hunting!
