Follow the Route and Interact with Objects

Artifact Route How to Farm.jpg

Farming artifacts with the routes listed below is an easy and fast way of obtaining multiple low rarity artifacts as level up material. To farm the artifacts using our routes, you will have to teleport the waypoints on the map and follow the arrows to the pinned locations. At the marked spots, you can find objects that will drop artifacts when you investigate them. Check every spot shown along the route to get the most out of it.

This method will only provide you with low rarity artifacts and is not useful for obtaining 4 or 5 Star artifacts. Farming the higher level artifacts will need a different method, check out more information on farming stronger artifacts in our guide below!

How to Level Up Artifacts

Use Other Artifacts as Material

The only way to increase the level of artifacts is to use other artifacts as level up material. This means you will be needing a lot of fodder artifacts to use to level up the artifacts you are going to be using.

Use rarity 3 and below artifacts

To level up the artifacts you are going to use, it is recommended to use artifacts that have a rarity of 3 or below. The reason being is that they are easier to come by and either has a rarity 4 or 5 versions that are much better to have equipped instead.

Rarity determines the level cap

Rarity Level Cap
1 Star Lv. 5
2 Star Lv. 5
3 Star Lv. 12
4 Star Lv. 16
5 Star Lv. 20

Leveling up the artifact will enchance its stat bonuses. But there is a limit to how many times you can level up. This limit will be determined by the rarity of the artifact, the higher the rarity the higher the level cap is.

When Should You Start Farming Artifacts

Start Farming at World Level 3

4 Star and 5 Star artifacts are easier to obtain after reaching World Level 3. These artifacts are much stronger but are less in number and will need a number of artifacts to level up. So start farming for lower rarity artifacts as you obtain the stronger ones.

      You can only decrease your WL by 1, so if you ascend to WL5, the lowest it can go is WL4.
