What Are Artifacts?

Stat-Boosting Items


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!

SlotStats Improved
ArtifactsFlower of LifeMainly increases HP
ArtifactsPlume of DeathMainly increases ATK
ArtifactsSands of EonRandomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Energy Recharge, Elemental Mastery
ArtifactsGoblet of EonothemRandomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Physical DMG Bonus, Elemental DMG Bonus
ArtifactsCirclet of LogosRandomly increases HP, ATK, DEF, Healing Bonus, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, Elemental Mastery

Stat Breakdown

Artifacts have 3 primary ways of giving power to your characters, as per the table below:

ExampleBonus / Desc.
ArtifactsPrimary Stat
Gives a large bonus to one stat.
Secondary Stat
Gives a smaller bonus to one (or more) stats.
Set Bonus
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!

Where To Get Artifacts - Artifact Location & Farming Guide

How To Obtain Artifacts

1Killing bosses
2Opening treasure chests
3Clearing domains
4Raising 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

1Clear domains
2Defeat Elite Bosses
3Defeat Stormerror

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.

Get From An Event

Get Ready For The Road
Event DurationUntil 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!

Upgrading Artifacts

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!
