Dan Heng uses these materials to raise his skill levels and unlock Traces. You’ll need 12 Arrows of the Beast, 54 Arrows of the Demon, and 99 Arrows of the Starchaser to fully ascend his skills. He does not need this material to ascend as a character, but keep in mind more of these materials will also be needed to ascend any Light Cone he would use.
