Genshin Impact Artifacts are gear sets designed to increase your character's elemental damage. All of these sets are 4-star or 5-star artifacts, so be sure to get the 5-star variants if you can, as those are the most powerful.

You also earn special bonuses by equipping 2 or 4 piece variants of each set. 2-piece sets usually boost your normal attacks, while 4-piece sets give you additional abilities that are much more powerful than some of Genshin Impact's base abilities.

This tier list guide highlights the best artifacts for your characters in Genshin Impact.

S-level artifacts

martial artist

  • Location: Zhou Hidden Palace Formula

Physical DPS players should seek out the Martial Artist set for two reasons: it increases damage for normal and charged attacks.

If you have a 2 piece set, your attacks will get a 15% bonus. If you have a 4-piece set, you will receive a 25% bonus after using your elemental skill.

It's a great set of artifacts for characters like Xiao and Razor.

Crimson Witch of Flames

  • Location: Zhou Hidden Palace Formula

This set is specially designed to increase the damage of the pyro. If you are wearing a 2-piece set, your pyro attacks will receive a 15% bonus.

But getting a 4-piece set is highly recommended, which does so much more. A set of 4 pieces:

  • Increases Overload and Burn damage by 40%.
  • Increases Vapor and Fusion damage by 15%.
  • Increases 2 piece set effects by 50%.

If you play with Diluc or Xiangling then this set is a must.

A-level artifacts

Lightning Fury

  • Location: Court of St. John

Electro heroes have longer cooldowns than other characters, but this set will make them much more effective.

The Thundering Fury 2-piece set increases your electro damage by 15% as usual. But the 4-piece set goes a step further and increases all of your Overcharged, Electrocharged, and Superconductor damage by 40%.

The 4-piece set also triggers an effect that reduces your elemental skill cooldown by one second.

It's a great set for Keqing and Fischl.


  • Location: Clear Pool and Mountain Cave

Speaking of elemental skill cooldown reduction, Gambler is a set that removes cooldowns permanently.

Regardless of the element, the 2-piece Player set will only increase your elemental skill damage by 20%, but the 4-piece set will reset the elemental skill cooldown whenever you kill an enemy.

This is the perfect set for all healers on your team.

B-level artifacts

Nobility obliges

  • Location: Clear Pool and Mountain Cave

Now let's take a look at the artifact sets for support characters.

The Noblesse Oblige set is by far the best supporter set you can get in Genshin Impact due to its ability to increase the damage of all allies by 20%.

This ability is tied to elemental burst damage, so be sure to give it to characters like Venti and Traveler.

beloved maiden

  • Lieu: Valley of Remembrance

This is great for healers as it increases all healing efficiency by 15%.

The 4-piece set is an essential item for multiplayer, as it increases the healing effectiveness of all allies by 20%, which can play a huge role in co-op battles.

Healers like Qiqi and Jean would be happy to have a set of Maiden Beloved.

I reverently

  • Lieu: Valley of Remembrance

Finally, this is a set of artifacts specifically designed for anemo characters, such as Venti, Jean, and Traveler.

Viridescent Venerer will increase your whirlwind damage by 60% in a 4-piece variant and decrease an enemy's elemental resistance by 40%, which is huge for any anemo player.

Viridescent Venerer will even work wonders on low level characters like Sucrose, especially if you have Pyro or Electro allies on your team.
