While Genshin Impact characters each have their strengths and weaknesses, where players can truly make them shine is their Artifact sets. By using the right Artifacts, leveling them up, and creating the best sets, players can maximize their characters to extraordinary levels. With so many different Artifacts in the Genshin Impact, it can be hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. Here is a list of the best Artifact sets for each character.


Genshin Impact Artifact sets

Genshin Impact gives bonuses to players who group Artifacts on their characters in sets. There are five different Artifact types, each with their own main stat:

  • Flower: HP
  • Plume: ATK
  • Sands: ATK / ATK% / DEF / DEF% / HP / HP% / Energy Recharge / Elemental Mastery
  • Goblet: ATK% / DEF% / HP% / Elemental Mastery, Elemental DMG% (Electro, Hydro, etc)
