Artifacts are items in Genshin Impact that can be equipped on characters to increase their stats. While some sets are useful on a large number of characters, others have very limited bonuses that only work on a few. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 best artifact sets in Genshin Impact 2022.

1. Noblesse Oblige

  • 2-Piece: Elemental Burst DMG +20%.
  • 4-Piece: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

Burst spam builds are probably the most popular in Genshin Impact, as most elemental bursts in the game are powerful. Both the 2 piece and 4 piece bonuses of the Noblesse set boost damage, which is a universally useful stat. Furthermore, the effect applies to all party members, so players can just place this set on a random support when needed.

Players can farm the Noblesse Oblige set via Domains and Artifact Strongbox.

2. Gladiator's Finale

  • 2-Piece: ATK +18%.
  • 4-Piece: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Overall, the Gladiator's Finale set provides the best raw damage boost for melee characters currently. It is the staple set for main DPS characters. The 2-piece set gives a powerful boost on ATK and the 4-piece set would strengthen any Sword, Claymore, or Polearm wielder's Normal Attack by a significant amount. If players don't know what to put on their DPS, just use this set.

This set is also quite easy to farm, as it drops from all the available world bosses.

3. Crimson Witch of Flames

  • 2-Piece: Pyro DMG Bonus +15%.
  • 4-Piece: Increases Overloaded and Burning DMG by 40%. Increases Vaporize and Melt DMG by 15%. Using an Elemental Skill increases 2-Piece Set effects by 50% for 10s. Max 3 stacks.

This is part of the 6 elemental damage boosting sets (Archaic Petra, Blizzard Strayer... etc), it is actually the best, as Pyro is the element with the highest damage. The 2 and 4-Piece set bonuses of the Crimson Witch are extremely powerful - they boost any Pyro character's overall Pyro damage and make Pyro Elemental Reactions even more explosive.

The Crimson Witch of Flames set can be acquired from the Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula.

4. Emblem of Severed Fate

  • 2-Piece: Energy Recharge +20%.
  • 4-Piece: Increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

This is another set that provides good boosts for Burst spam supports. The 2-piece gives energy recharge, allowing characters to spam their burst more often. On the other hand, the 4 piece bonus greatly increases the damage of their burst, which is usually the only source of damage for supports.

Emblem of Severed Fate can be obtained from Momiji-Dyed Court.

5. Viridescent Venerer

  • 2-Piece: Anemo DMG Bonus +15%
  • 4-Piece: Increases Swirl DMG by 60%. Decreases opponent's Elemental RES to the element infused in the Swirl by 40% for 10s.

Anemo characters often play the support role in Genshin lineups, and if you run one, the Venerer set is probably the best. It increases their capability of supporting greatly by adding a 40% res debuff for the element the Venerer user swirl. This, in turn, allows the DPS character to dish out more damage.

Viridescent Venerer can be obtained from Valley of Remembrance.
