Each enemy target has a certain chance at the start of each turn to be afflicted by a stack of Arcana for every instance of DoT sustained.

At the beginning of an enemy’s turn, when Arcana causes DMG, Black Swan will trigger additional effects that can be stacked, based upon the number of Arcana stacks inflicted on a target:

Over 3 stacks: Inflicts Wind DoT to adjacent enemies and has a chance of inflicting 1 stack of Arcana to adjacent targets.
Over 7 stacks: The DoT inflicted this time ignores a certain percentage of the DEF of both the target and adjacent targets.
