During the Version 3.6 special program, HoYoVerse introduced two new Artifact Sets that will appear in the new Genshin Impact update. The Domain to obtain them from will likely be in the new region. The Artifacts appear to work in conjunction with Nilou and Baizhu, who will be two of the five-star characters on the banners.
The new Genshin Impact Artifact sets and their effects are:
- 2-Piece Set: Hydro DMG Bonus +15%
- 4-Piece Set: After Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts hit opponents, 1 stack of Mirrored Nymph will be triggered, lasting 8s. When under the effect of 1, 2, or 3, or more Mirrored Nymph stacks, ATK will be increased by 7%/16%/25%, and Hydro DMG will be increased by 4%/9%/15%. Mirrored Nymph stacks created by Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks, Elemental Skills, and Elemental Bursts exist independently.
- 2-Piece Set: HP +20%
- 4-Piece Set: Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst DMG will be increased by 10%. After the equipping character takes DMG, the aforementioned DMG bonus is increased by 80% for 5s. This effect increase can have 5 stacks. The duration of each stack is counted independently. These effects can be triggered even when the equipping character is not on the field.
Though these Genshin Impact Artifact sets look on paper like they work best for Nilou and Baizhu, the deciding factor will come down to how the players actually use them in their parties. For example, Nymph’s Dream looks like it works better for a pure Hydro DPS character such as Childe. This is because the majority of Nilou’s damage potential comes from the Bloom effect.
Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. The 3.6 update will arrive on April 12, 2023.
