Genshin Impact released a new playable 4 Star character, Kaveh, in version 3.6. Kaveh is a 4 Star Dendro Claymore character whose kit falls into the DPS/Sub-DPS category. He is meant to use in a rotational manner by utilizing his Burst and then his Elemental Skill to dish out Dendro damage. As such, Kaveh is referred to as a ‘budget Alhaitham’ as he works very similarly to him in terms of kit. There is no set best Artifacts for Kaveh as each build and sub-stats depends on various amount of factors depending on how you build him and what Dendro reaction teams you plan on using him for. Regardless, here is a complete guide to Kaveh’s best Artifact Builds in the game.
Best Artifacts Build for Kaveh in Genshin Impact
|4-piece: Deepwood Memories
|Sets to built
Explanation: The 4-piece Artifact Set will generally be Kaveh’s BiS (Best-in-Slot) Artifact Set. It can shred Dendro resistance which allows for more Spread and Dendro Core DMG and an overall boost to your team’s general damage. If no other team-mate is using this Set on themselves then is set is recommended to be used on Kaveh. If other characters can better utilize the 4-piece set then it is better to not equip the set to Kaveh as the 4-piece bonus does not stack. Overall, the Deepwood Memories is an overall flexible and reliable Set to use on Kaveh for maximum resin efficiency.
|2-Pieces: Dendro DMG Bonus +15%.4-Pieces: After Elemental Skills or Bursts hit opponents, the targets’ Dendro RES will be decreased by 30% for 8s. This effect can be triggered even if the equipping character is not on the field.
|4-piece: Glided Dreams
|Sets to built
Explanation: This 4-piece set gives a lot of Elemental Mastery for boosting Dendro-related reaction damage (whether be it for Spread or Bloom) with a bit of added ATK too. The EM bonuses also help with Kaveh’s healing Passive. It shares a domain with the Deepwood Memories set hence it is very resin efficient to farm for.
|2-Pieces: Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.4-Pieces: Within 8s of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members. ATK is increased by 14% for each party member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and Elemental Mastery is increased by 50 for every party member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the aforementioned buffs will count up to 3 characters. This effect can be triggered once every 8s. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.
|2-piece: Deepwood Memories/Emblem of Severed Fate/Flower of Paradise Lost/Gilded Dreams/ Wanderer’s Troupe
|Sets to built
Explanation: If the mentioned 4-piece sets are difficult to farm then a combination of 2-piece sets is the way to go for Kaveh. 2-piece Sets that provide Elemental Mastery (EM), Dendro DMG Bonus, and even Energy Recharge are some of the suggested combinations that players can experiment on. Kaveh, just like every other Dendro-related character, has his most damage potential by pairing him up with Dendro reactions such as Quicken, Spread, Bloom, etc. Additionally, Kaveh is an Energy hungry unit due to high Burst cost hence players can slap ER on him depending on the build.

Before we talk about the priority of Artifact stats, the first thing that should be focused on is on how much Energy Recharge is sufficient enough for Kaveh. As Kaveh just like other Main DPS/Sub-DPS units, has a high Elemental Burst cost (80 ER Cost), there is a certain threshold that he needs to fill in order to dish out high damage and an optimal team rotations.
Kaveh’s ER Requirements:
- Kaveh’s ER is important as his attack rotations involve his Burst. His target Energy Recharge will vary based on certain factors but generally, around 150% ER is good if you use another Dendro unit in the party that can help generate Dendro particles.
- However, if Kaveh is the only Dendro character in the party he would need over 180% ER due to certain factors such as type of Dendro reaction team comps etc.
For sub-stats prioritize on getting enough ER to adjust to high energy needs, afterward look mainly for EM and Crit stats.
