Attacks much faster over much longer range.
~ BTD6

Arcane Mastery is the third upgrade of Path 1 for the Wizard Monkey in BTD6. It allows the Wizard to shoot twice as fast as the base tower with adding a substantial range boost. Its magic bolts now have +4 pierce (6 without Intense Magic, 11 with Intense Magic) and deal 3 damage instead of 2, despite the description not mentioning the aforementioned bonuses. It costs $1105 on Easy, $1300 on Medium, $1405 on Hard, $1560 on Impoppable.


  • Invest in a 3-0-2 wizard monkey over a 3-2-0 wizard monkey, as the bolt possess poor pierce, and the succeeding upgrade Arcane Spike allows the popping of lead bloons, leaving the fireball attack near redundant and the benefits of intense magic more important.
  • One 3-0-2 Arcane Mastery can easily solo most camo bloons until Round 45, where it cannot affect Camo Purples.

Version HistoryEdit


Buff Arcane Mastery now adds more pierce (0 -> +4, 6 in total)
