Scales and arpeggios must be practiced diligently.
Scales and arpeggios must be practiced HS; practicing them HT all the time will place them in the same category as Hanon.
Two exceptions to this "no HT rule" are: (A) when you are using them for warm-ups (before recitals, etc.), and (B) when practicing to make sure that the two hands can be synchronized accurately.
