The artifacts are a type of item of equipment used in Genshin Impact to improve our characters with additional statistics. There are a lot of them and they are vital to face the most difficult missions. In this entry of our complete guide we show you all the artifacts and their sets and what bonuses each one gives you.
How to get artifacts?
First, before going on to explain the operation of artifacts in depth, let’s clarify how they can be obtained in the game in case anyone had any doubts. It is actually quite simple, since all artifacts can be obtained by simply completing missions, opening chests around the world, defeating boss enemies, realizing domains, and so on .
Obtaining each one is random , so just play and do all kinds of tasks to obtain them.
Each character in the game can equip 5 artifacts at the same time. There are 5 main categories of artifacts that are conditioned by the shape they have and these determine a type of bonus, they are the following:
- Flower:improves life.
- Feather of bird: theyimprove the base attack.
- Clock:can improve attack, defense, health, elemental mastery or energy recharge.
- Cup:can improve attack, defense, health, bonus to physical damage or bonus to elemental damage.
- Touched:can improve attack, defense life, elemental mastery, critical damage, critical rate or healing bonus.
Each of these categories of artifacts can belong to a set or set that we will see below.
Artifact sets and their bonuses (all sets)
One of the most important things to know about artifacts is that they are useful on their own, but equipping them together creating sets gives you special bonuses that are much more beneficial for your characters.
There are two types of bonuses; on the one hand when we equip 2 artifacts from the same set and on the other when we equip 4 artifacts from the same set (for example adventurer or traveling medic). It is always better to try to equip artifacts by creating a set to receive the bonus, rather than equipping individual artifacts each from a different set.
There are a total of 29 different sets of artifacts in the game , they are the following:
|Set||2-piece set||4-piece set|

Since the characters can only equip 5 artifacts, we can only make them have a bonus of 2 different sets or a single one of 4 artifacts of the same set.
1 Piece Set
In particular, there are four types of artifacts that alone offer a bonus . That is, you only need to equip them with 1 piece to receive their bonus (which would complete the equipment of our character’s artifacts). Are these:
|Set||Artifact||Bonus (1 piece)|
|Ritual of Wisdom||Thunder Tiara||Electro affects you 40% less time.|
|Ritual of Spring||Frost Tiara||Cryo affects you 40% less time.|
|Ritual of Enlightenment||Flame Tiara||Pyro affects you 40% less time.|
|Ritual of Destiny||Torrentes Tiara||Hydro affects you 40% less time.|
Improve artifacts and their stats
Artifacts, like weapons or characters, have their own levels and also rarity stars. Of course, the best ones are the 4 and 5-star ones (the ones that are worth leveling up by strengthening them), although these are the rarest to achieve and also the ones that will take you the longest to improve.
Each artifact has a primary stat (determined as we have seen by its shape), and up to four secondary stats . Every time you raise an artifact four levels, it will unlock a new secondary stat and it will become more powerful (this stat can never be the same as the main stat).
Depending on the rarity stars that an artifact has, it can be strengthened more or less .
- 1-star artifacts:can be upgraded to level 4.
- 2-star artifacts:can be upgraded to level 8.
- 3-star artifacts:can be upgraded up to level 12.
- 4-star artifacts:can be upgraded to level 16.
- 5 Star Artifacts –Can be upgraded to level 20.
