Artifacts are items in Genshin Impact that can be equipped on Characters to increase their Stats. It is the second tab in the Inventory.

There are 5 types of Artifacts that can be equipped: Flower of Life Flower of Life, Plume of Death Plume of Death, Sands of Eon Sands of Eon, Goblet of Eonothem Goblet of Eonothem, and Circlet of Logos Circlet of Logos. Only one of each type can be equipped on a character at a time.

All Artifacts have a main affix, commonly known as a main stat, with up to 4 minor affixes, commonly known as sub stats or secondary stats. These affixes can greatly increase the character's strength in combat. Certain artifact types, such as the Flower of Life and Plume of Death, can only come with a specific main stat, while other types can come with one of many main stats.

How to Obtain[]

Artifacts can be obtained in the following ways:

At the highest Domain level, Artifact Domains averages at 1 5-Star featured artifact and 1.5 4-Star featured artifacts. Featured artifacts each have 50% to be either of the two types.

A maximum of 1,800 Artifacts can be in a player's Inventory at a time. If the player tries to collect another Artifact, a special notice will appear on-screen.

Some NPCs have dialogue branches that give the player one artifact. There are also NPCs who sell 2★ artifacts.



Artifacts can be equipped on characters from the Character > Artifacts > Switch Menu or the Inventory > Artifacts > Details > Fast Equip Menu.

In the Switch menu, artifact affixes are shown side by side In the Fast Equip menu, artifact affixes are compared to what is added and removed.


Artifacts require Artifact EXP and Mora to enhance. Artifact EXP can be acquired through Artifact Enhancement Materials or from using other Artifacts as Enhancement Materials.

On the enhancement screen, press the Icon Settings icon to open the pop-up to enable "Enhance to Next Tier" function. When this is enabled, the "Auto Add" button changes to "Enhance to Next Tier" and only enough enhancement material to reach Level 4/8/12/16 will be added.

In Settings > Other, enable "Allow Auto Adding 5-Star Artifacts as Enhancement Materials" to show the "5-Star Materials and Under" option when adding auto adding enhancement materials.

1 point of EXP costs Mora Mora ×1 except when recycling an already-leveled artifact.

Upgrading a full set of 5★ artifacts to level 20 will cost 270,475 × 5 = 1,352,375 Artifact EXP & Mora.


1-Star to 4-Star Artifacts can be destroyed for Mora, and up to 100 Artifacts can be destroyed at a time. The Artifact must be at Level 0 (+0) with 0 EXP. The Mora received is 420/840/1260/2520 depending on the quality, which is equal to the Mora it would cost to use the Artifact as Artifact EXP.

5-Star Artifacts cannot be destroyed for Mora, but they can be used on Mystic Offerings which will give back one Artifact Strongbox.


The "Artifact Auto-Lock" function allows 5-Star Artifacts to be locked based on certain criteria. It can be accessed from the Inventory.

General Settings include settings that apply to all Artifact sets to lock, each of which can be enabled separately. These include:

  • Goblet of Eonothem / Main affix
    • Bonus Elemental DMG or Bonus Physical DMG
  • Circlet of Logos / Main affix
    • CRIT Rate
  • Circlet of Logos / Main affix
    • CRIT DMG

For each artifact set, 2 plans can be created with Lock Settings based on Main Affix and Minor Affixes. The main affix of Sands of Eon, Goblet of Eonothem, and Circlet of Logos can be selected separately. Minor affixes apply to all pieces and can select to include any 1 to and 4 of the selected affixes. Plans can be reset to used Default Settings based on recent activity data.

The "Search Artifacts in Inventory" function finds all artifacts in the inventory of the current set that match the current plan and displays them to confirmed to be locked.

There is an option to "Quick Unlock" all locked artifact from each set from this screen.

Artifact Sets are different kinds of artifacts that have different Set Bonuses depending on how many are of that set are equipped on a character. There are 52 Artifact Sets:

GamblerArtifact set Set Gambler
ScholarArtifact set Set Scholar


Each artifact has one main stat, determined by the artifact's type/slot. Its value at each level is determined by the stat and the artifact's quality. Main stats include HP, HP%, ATK, ATK%, DEF%, Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge%, Elemental Damage Bonus% for each of the 7 playable Elements, Physical DMG Bonus%, Crit Rate%, Crit DMG%, and Healing Bonus, but not all stats are available for all artifacts.

Along with the main stat, artifacts have up to 4 sub-stats that are all different from the main stat. For every 4 levels that an artifact gains, an additional sub-stat is added unless the artifact already has 4 sub-stats, in which case a random sub-stat is upgraded. Sub-stats include HP, HP%, ATK, ATK%, DEF, DEF%, Elemental Mastery, Energy Recharge%, Crit Rate%, and Crit DMG%.
