Artifacts become such an essential part of our builds in Dragonheir Silent Gods after reaching rank 3 on a hero, but without having prior experience, it’s a difficult task to know exactly which artifacts are worth investing in, and what will benefit you the most.
In today’s article, our aim is to provide that experience and knowledge to you, to use as a reference point when making the decision of which artifact to use, and or buy for your heroes going forwards.
With there being so many artifacts in the game, we’ll break this down into each rarity, starting off with the rare artifacts tierlist!
All ratings are based on personal opinion, opinions can and will vary.
Rare Artifacts Tierlist:
Rare Artifacts can be obtained through the Artifact store, with a currency that you obtain via collecting duplicate rare heroes in Dragonheir.
Realistically speaking, collecting all of these Artifacts should not be a difficult task even as a free to play account, but understanding the best ones is vital to make sure that you pick them up first!
Ancestor’s Bone is a great option for damage dealers, with a 25% increase to Crit Damage when fully upgraded, however, because of the stats on it giving HP% Rather than ATK% there are just way better options, but if you’re limited on what artifacts you have, it can work well as a second or third damage dealers artifact.
Banner of Oath
Banner of Oath is an artifact I found particularly strong at the start of the game when progressing in Grave of Venom, to help keep my tank alive due to the amount of damage the boss deals, if you position your team well, you’re gaining 25% Defense at all times whilst also gaining a boost to your HP and DEF from the Artifact Stats.
Dancing Gyro is a great option, especially if you’re pushing into building Dauntless Heroes and have only got rare, and maybe a handful of Epic Artifacts, of course, with it being a rare artifact it does get out scaled relatively easily as with all Rares, but it’s a solid beginner option.
Elven Hunter’s Quiver
The Elven Hunter’s Quiver is the very first Artifact you get, when you complete the story mission to upgrade a hero to rank 3, and it’s one that will get quite a lot of usage, with a large boost to your Attack stats, and also a 30% chance of dealing Derivative Damage.
Great Traveler’s Headband
I personally don’t see much use for this artifact, unless you’re struggling to keep a support alive in a fight where you’re constantly being controlled, but it’s unlikely that this will be the case till you are later in the game and as such have access to much better artifacts – I wouldn’t waste any resources into this one.
Horn of the Labyrinth Lord
Just like the Dancing Gyro, this artifact almost feels custom built for Dauntless Heroes, but this is just significantly better, due to the high uptime of Attack Up from how frequently Dauntless Heroes use their basic skills, you’re going to be getting a HUGE amount of stats from this artifact.
Ivaran’s Arrow is quite niche but can be helpful early on when you do not have access to scrolls for your heroes to guarantee the debuff placement on their battle skills, but it’s one of those artifacts that as time goes on will get out scaled simply by having heroes that are able to consistently place debuffs without the need for this added boost.
Luminary Order Gospel
Luminary Order Gospel is really the only rare Artifact that boosts your healers, and as such, deserves a high ranking for Rare Artifacts, because it’s a no-brainer option when building your team if you do not have better, epic or legendary counterparts, sticking this on your healer is not only going to improve their healing output, but also their survivability due to the stats that are on it.
Just like Ivaran’s Arrow, this is quite niche, but can be helpful early on when you do not have access to scrolls for your heroes to guarantee the debuff placement on their ultimate skills, but it’s one of those artifacts that as time goes on will get out scaled simply by having heroes that are able to consistently place debuffs without the need for this added boost.
Meditator’s Pipe is an amazing option for Poison Heroes, with a boost for the 3 most important stats for poison damage, Attack, Enlightenment AND Accuracy to land the poisons – if you’re looking to build a team with a poison damage dealer and don’t have access to artifacts like Vile Ink, this is a great pick up!
Unfortunately this artifact only see’s 15 seconds of value, so I don’t feel right giving it a high rating, if the shield was more consistent, or triggered during battles, It would be a great artifact, but in the opening 15 seconds it’s just not bringing much outside of a permanent Defense boost from its basic stats.
