New Artifacts

New Artifacts

Husk Of Opulent Dreams

2-Pc Bonus+30% Defense
4-Pc BonusA character equipped with this set will obtain the Curiosity effect in the following conditions: When on the field, the character gains 1 stack after hitting an opponent with a Geo attack, triggering a maximum of once every 0.3s.

The Husk Of Opulent Dreams is a new Geo-focused artifact that's fit for Defense-based Geo Characters. It should work well with characters like Albedo, Noelle, and Arataki Itto!

Ocean-Hued Clam

2-Pc Bonus+15% Healing Bonus
4-Pc BonusWhen the character equipping this artifact heals a character in the party, a Sea-Dyed Foam will appear for 3 seconds, accumulating the amount of HP restored from healing (including overflow healing). At the end of the duration, the Sea-Dyed Foam will explode, dealing DMG to nearby opponents based on 90% of the accumulated healing (This DMG is calculated similarly to Reactions such as Electro-Charged and Superconduct, but it is not affected by Elemental Mastery, Character Levels, or Reaction DMG Bonuses).

On the other hand, the Ocean-Hued Clams is a new artifact set made for healers! Unlike Maiden Beloved, Ocean-Hued Clams works in a way that it boosts healing and damage for characters that use it.

Both Will Be Included In New Seirai Island Domain

The two new artifacts can be farmed in a new domain to be added in Seirai Island. Just like other Artifact Domains, collecting rewards will require Resin.

New Quests
