What Are Artifacts?
Unlike many other traditional RPGs, you won't be equipping breastplates and shoulderpads in Genshin. Instead, you'll have 5 separate Artifact slots, into which you can equip one of each type of Artifact to customize to improve your character's stats!
|Flower of Life||Mainly increases HP|
|Plume of Death||Mainly increases ATK|
|Sands of Eon||Randomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Energy Recharge, Elemental Mastery|
|Goblet of Eonothem||Randomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Physical DMG Bonus, Elemental DMG Bonus|
|Circlet of Logos||Randomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Healing Bonus, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, Elemental Mastery|
Artifacts have 3 primary ways of giving power to your characters, as per the table below:
|Example||Bonus / Desc.|
Gives a large bonus to one stat.
Gives a smaller bonus to one (or more) stats.
Gives a specific bonus depending on the set
Set Bonuses are acquired by equipping 2 or 4 (and in some rare instances, just 1) Artifacts of the same set. Find out more about possible Set Bonuses Here!Check Out Best Artifact Sets Here!
Where To Get Artifacts - Artifact Location & Farming Guide
How To Obtain Artifacts
|2||Opening treasure chests|
|4||Raising your Adventure Rank|
Artifacts drop pretty much everywhere in the world. They can be obtained by killing enemies (especially bosses), opening treasure chests, from domains, and as rewards for raising your Adventure Rank!
How To Get Rare Artifacts
|2||Defeat Elite Bosses|
Particularly rare artifacts (purple and orange ones), can be obtained by doing more difficult content. As per the table above, you'll have to take on difficult Domains, beat Elite Bosses, including Stormterror, to get these rare artifacts. Note that Artifacts do not drop from Wishes, so this will be your only way to get them.Check Out How To Strengthen Your Character Here
Get From An Event
|Event Duration||Until Sept 28th (Finished)|
A pre-launch event took place in September, in which players were able to get special powerful Artifacts (or Weapons). Although this is no longer available, you can still see what kinds of artifacts were available in our detailed article below. It's also possible that more events like this will happen in the future!Check Out The Get Ready For The Road Event Here!
Use Other Artifacts As Reagents
While Weapons allow you to use special Enhancement Ore to enhance them, Artifacts do not. The only way to enhance and level up your Artifacts is to break down other Artifacts. This means the more Artifacts you collect, the more you'll be able to upgrade your existing ones.
New Secondary Stats Added
As you upgrade your Artifacts, you will randomly get additional secondary stat buffs! These are often surprisingly powerful, so you will want to upgrade your strongest characters' Artifacts!
