Artifacts

Artifacts are equippable items which will gave boost to your character depend on stats, rarity, and artifact upgrade level. Every artifact set have bonus set for 2 and 4 set artifact.

For early game, you don’t need to think too much about artifacts because literally you can just equip any artifacts with better stats than your previous one. But when you’ve reached Adventure Rank 30 or higher, you might want to start check your artifacts set. Their stats, rarity, and of course upgrade level.

5 Pieces of Artifact

There’s 30 artifact sets available ranged from 1 star to 5 star rarity. For every artifact set there’s 5 item available with each of the item have their own main stats (rng):

Flower of LifeHP
Plume of DeathATK
Sands of EonATK / ATK% / DEF / DEF% / HP / HP% / Energy Recharge / Elemental Mastery
Goblet of EonothemATK% / DEF% / HP% / Elemental Mastery / Elemental DMG% (Anemo, Cryo, Electro, Geo, Hydro, and Pyro)
Circlet of LogosATK% / DEF% / HP% / CRIT  Rate / CRIT DMG / Elemental Mastery / Healing Bonus

Choosing artifacts for your character depend on what kind of build that you want to make, your character element preferences, and role (dps, support, healer, etc).

Check Genshin Impact character list for more information, I’ve put some recommended build covering artifact and weapon for every character.

Upgrading Artifacts in Genshin Impact

Max level upgrade for artifact depend on rarity. 4 star artifact can be upgraded up to +16 and 5 star artifact can be upgraded up to +20. As for how to increase artifacts in genshin impact, you can upgrade it using “fodder” or any unused artifacts from lowest rarity to highest rarity. Of course, higher rarity will give more exp than lower one.

But this is RNG game so about which substats you will get entirely depend on your luck. Here’s all artifacts available in Genshin Impact categorized by their rarity:
