Genshin Impact - Artifact Set List Banner

A list of all Artifacts and their Set Bonuses found in Genshin Impact. Read on for a guide to Artifact Sets, Artifact Set Bonus effects, and Recommended Artifact Sets.

What are Artifacts?

Artifact Bar.png

Artifacts serve as the equipment or gear for your characters in Genshin Impact. Rather than using the standard RPG Equipment categories such as Helmets, Boots, and so on, Genshin Impact has separated the different pieces into five unique categories.

Obtain From Bosses, Chests, and Domains

Artifacts are an important part of your character's stats and performance in battle. They can be farmed from chests in the field but these chests would often contain artifacts that are weaker than some of the rarer artifacts.

To get the best artifacts, try to raise your Adventure Rank quickly then hunt Elite Bosses and challenge Domains to obtain the best artifacts!

Artifact Stats Guide

Artifacts sport a varying amount of RNG but it isn't as punishing as it sounds. Below are all the details about the stats that artifacts can possiblay have.

Divided Into Main and Sub Stats

artifact stats.jpg
Artifacts have 3 parts that affects the stats of the wielder. The main stat which is highlighted in orange, the sub stat which is highlighted in yellow, and the set effects which is highlighted in lightblue.

Main stats' value are fixed but which stat your artifact gains as a main stat is randomized (ATK value is the same for all artifact of the same rank but the artifact you get may contain HP, ATK, DEF, etc). Sub stats are completely random and is the deal breaker in end-game artifacts. Set bonuses are fixed per set so focusing on getting the right stats for your artifact's main and sub stat is the key to getting great artifacts.

Artifact Main Stats

Boosted Stats Main Stats
Genshin - Artifacts - Flower of Life - Flower Icon.pngFlower of Life HP

Genshin - Artifacts - Circlet of Logos - Crown Icon.pngCirclet of Logos Attack (%), Defense (%), HP (%), Elemental Mastery, Elemental Recharge, Critical Rate, Critical Damage, Healing Bonus, Element Damage Buff

Aside from Elemental Mastery, all stat bonuses from the artifact's main stat comes in percentages. So the higher your base stats goes, the higher the stats they can provide.

Artifact Sub Stats List

Attack Defense
HP Critical Rate
Critical Damage Element Mastery
Energy Recharge

These are the possible sub stats your artifacts can have upon leveling them up. Attack, HP, and Defense may come in flat value and % value.

Artifact Set Bonuses

Artifact Set Bonuses.png

Each Artifact is associated with a Set. These Sets are associated with a bonus depending on how many pieces of that Set are equipped to a character.

Most Sets have a given bonus for equipping 2 pieces or 4 pieces of a set. As Characters can only equip up to five Artifacts at a time, you'll often be forced to choose between equipping two pairs of 2-piece Sets or a single 4-piece set.
