Genshin Impact: How to get the most from Artifacts and boost your characters

You don't need a 5 or 4 star set to start buffing your characters

Genshin Impact as an Open-World RPG brings the player a lot of encounters and challenges. One of those is knowing how and what to build for each character. Even though most of the Genshin Impact players think it’s not worth to upgrade some artifacts or just upgrade 4+ artifacts, we bring today a guide to help you understand the actual truth. Keep reading to know how and what to do to buff your Genshin Impact characters so you don’t struggle with challenges any longer.


Set > Stats > Stars

Keep in mind, stats and rarity are not everything in Genshin Impact. Although they play a pretty important role, there are some other factors to pay attention to. For example, the Brave Heart set increases your damage by 18%. Add that to two 3 stars artifacts with ATK % on their main stats and you easily have 50%+ damage. And since we are at the main stats talk, the usual build for DPS and Supports right now usually follows

Recommended sets for the DPS (both Main or Alternate) include:

  • 2-piece Resolution of the Sojourner: Critical Rate +18%
  • 2-piece Berserker: ATK +18%
  • 4-piece Gladiator’s Finale: ATK +18%, Normal Attack Damage +35% ( Sword, Polearm, Claymore )
  • 4-piece Elemental-specific sets
    • Crimson Witch of the Flames (Pyro)
    • Thundering Fury (Electro)
    • Glacier and Snowfield (Cyro)
    • Viridescent Venerer (Anemo)
    • There are currently no sets for Hydro

Recommended sets for the Support include:

  • 4-piece The Exile : Energy Recharge +20%, Elemental Burst regenerates 2 Energy for other party members every 2s for 6s
  • 4-piece Noblesse Oblige : Elemental Burst Damage +20%, Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s

Check the Stats

In Genshin Impact, Flowers and Plumes are guaranteed to have HP and ATK as the main stat, respectively. But apart from that, the artifacts can range from a variety of buffs considering their rarity. With that, you can have a 3-star artifact with the main attribute being ATK% and another one that gives HP. Not that we have any prejudice against HP, but to be fair, your DPS will benefit a lot more from stats like ATK% and Elemental Mastery. Try to prioritize your artifacts with

  • Sands: ATK % > Elemental Mastery > Elemental Recharge
  • Goblet: ATK % Elemental Bonus > Physical Bonus
  • Circlet: ATK % > Critical Rate % > Critical Damage %

But having good stats isn’t all, because you still need to upgrade them.


Upgrade your Artifacts in Genshin Impact

Once you have the right Set with an artifact that has your preferable stat as their main stat, is time to start improving them. To upgrade artifact you will use other artifacts, and their level plays an important role in how much XP they will increase the bar. Each level the main stat increase, at every 4 levels you get a bonus stat. If your artifact has reached the maximum stats possible, it will improve a random stat. Each artifact has limits based on its rarity as following:

RarityMax LevelBase # of Sub Stats# of Unlocks# of Upgrades
14010
240~110
3121~22~30~1
4162~31~22~3
5203~40~14~5

Keep exploring, leveling and looting

Of course it is useful to have a Great 3 Star set in Genshin Impact. But 5-star sets, as shown, have more stats and can be upgraded to higher levels. Once you have a good set, don’t take everything for granted and keep looking for more artifacts that suit your build in Genshin Impact. Each artifact has random stats and you should keep trying until you get the one you want with the stats you want. Here go some tables for consulting
