Genshin Impact Its biggest attraction is the variety of colorful characters and the unique ways to build them. Artifacts are one of the main features of character creation, but the energy-locked aspect of RNG to get that perfect piece can be daunting and draining for players.

Artifacts have always been one of the core features of an item Genshin Dampak Impact builds that can make all the difference, especially in the later stages of the game considering that Spiral Abyss becomes more difficult with each update.


A Genshin Dampak Impact The leaker named Tangzhu has revealed more details about the new artifact set. The new set seems perfect for either of Genshin Dampak Impactstrongest DPS character, Anemo Xiao user. According to the translation provided in the Reddit thread, the artifact pool looks set to have the following stats:

  • Two-piece bonus: Increases Attack by 18%
  • Four-piece bonus: Performing an elemental blast increases Attack damage by 8%. In addition, every time a character loses health, they receive 10% attack. This effect stacks up to four times and lasts 16 seconds. This effect disappears once the character leaves the field.

This artifact set was made for “selfish DPS” characters given that the four-piece bonus only applies if the character is on the field. Selfish DPS characters are considered a minor DPS subclass that is only effective while on the field. The two main reps would probably be Xiao and Razor as their elemental blasts dealing overall damage buff damage would stop immediately once they were swapped.

Xiao has seen a rise in popularity since his second appearance in the latest double banner rerun that arrived in the Genshin Impact 2.4 update. Xiao is one of the strongest DPS characters in Genshin Dampak Impact currently, on par with Ganyu and Hu Tao. Even though he was paired with the new character Shenhe at the current banner cycle, many players still chose to spend their Primogem to finally get Xiao and build his constellation.

Xiao’s first four constellations provide increased utility, but the damage remains the same. However, his final constellation, Conqueror Of Evil: Guardian Yaksha, is one of the strongest in the current game allowing him to gain additional Elemental Skill charges when using Plunging attacks for the duration of Burst.
