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. As resin is limited, players need to farm the most optimal artifact sets.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 8 most versatile 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. 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.

3. Tenacity of the Millelith

  • 2-Piece: HP +20%
  • 4-Piece: When an Elemental Skill hits an opponent, the ATK of all nearby party members is increased by 20% and their Shield Strength is increased by 30% for 3s. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s. This effect can still be triggered even when the character who is using this artifact set is not on the field.

The 2-piece bonus is also useful if you want to run a mixed set.

A great set to use on all Shielder/Support characters to maximize the damage of the main DPS. Stacks with Noblesse for even more ATK.

4. 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.

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.

6. Flower of Paradise Lost

  • 2-Piece: Elemental Mastery +80
  • -Piece: The equipping character's Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon reaction DMG are increased by 40%. Additionally, after the equipping character triggers Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon, they will gain another 25% bonus to the effect mentioned prior. Each stack of this lasts 10s. Max 4 stacks simultaneously. This effect can only be triggered once per second. The character who equips this can still trigger its effects when not on the field.

This set is designed around Dendro reaction and allows the wielder to deal extra damage with them. It also boosts EM, a crucial stat for reactions. All Dendro reaction DPS characters such as Nilou, Nahida, Tighnari and the like would want to use this set.

7. 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.

8. Thundering Fury

  • 2-Piece: Electro DMG Bonus +15%
  • 4-Piece: Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged, Superconduct, and Hyperbloom by 40%, and the DMG Bonus conferred by Aggravate is increased by 20%. When Quicked or the aforementioned Elemental Reactions are triggered, Elemental Skill CD is decreased by 1s. Can only occur once every 0.8s

The 4-piece set effect is powerful due to its boost on Electro DMG and Electro-related reactions. Triggering Electro-Charged, Overloaded, and Superconduct will also decrease the CD of the Elemental Skill by 1s as well as increase the damage.

Thundering Fury
Thundering Fury works if you are running a Taser or Hyperbloom team, which are very popular from 3.3 onwards.

With the release of quite a few good Electro DPS into Genshin, the Thundering Fury set is getting more and more popular.
