Raid Shadow Legends Artifact Guide

First up in this artifact and accessories guide, we will cover the basics of Raid Shadow Legends Artifacts. Included are details on all the different types, their rarity, how to improve them, where to get them, and the buffs you can get for each complete set.

Artifact Types and Stats

Raid Shadow Legends Artifact Type

There are 6 different types of Artifacts that Champions can wear. However, they can only wear one of each type. Each Artifact also has a primary bonus stat boost which depends on the type of Artifact it is. Additionally, upgrading Artifacts can add up to 4 additional bonus Substats. A full list of Artifact types and their primary stat boosts can be seen below. Substats can be any of the Primary Stats found in the table below, regardless of Artifact type.

Artifact TypePrimary Bonus Stat
GauntletsDefense %, HP %, Crit Rate %, Crit Damage %, Attack %, Attack, HP or Defense
ChestplateDefense %, HP %, Attack %, Attack, HP, Defense, Accuracy or Resistance
BootsDefense %, HP %, Attack %, Attack, HP, Defense or Speed

Depending on the Champion build you are going for, it is important to farm for the optimal Primary Stat on your Gauntlets, Chestplate, and Boots.

Upgrading Raid Shadow Legends Artifacts

Upgrading Raid Artifacts

Raid Shadow Legends Artifacts start at level 0 and can be upgraded to level 16. Artifacts are upgraded by selecting the Artifact and clicking “Upgrade”. Each time an Artifact is upgraded, the Primary Stat will be improved. Additionally, when levels 4, 8, 12, and 16 are hit, the Artifact will gain a Substat or have a current one improved if it already has its max of 4 Substats.

It costs Coins to upgrade Artifacts. This cost increases as the Artifact’s level increases. Additionally, the chance that a level upgrade will be successful also decreases as the level increases. The chance of a successful Artifact upgrade can be seen below:

Artifact LevelChance of Success
1 – 4Certain
5 – 7High
8 – 10Medium
11 – 13Low
14 – 16Minimal

Raid Shadow Legends Artifact Rarity

Raid Artifact Rarity

Raid Shadow Legends Artifacts come in 5 different rarity types. The higher the rarity, the higher the number of Substats the Artifact will start with. All Artifacts will have 4 Substats when fully upgraded to level 16.

However, if they already start with Substats before you commence upgrading, then you can improve these Substats even further. Artifact Substats will be added/improved when upgraded to levels 4, 8, 12, and 16. Artifact rarity and starting Substats are shown below:

ColorRarityStarting Substats
RedMythical4 & 1 will be equivalent to a level 4 Legendary artifact stat

Artifact Rank

Artifacts can be ranked from 1 to 6 Stars. The higher the number of stars, the higher the Primary Stats and Substats of the Artifact will be. As a result, it is often better to have a 6 Star Uncommon Artifact than a 1 Star Legendary Artifact. An Artifact’s rank cannot be upgraded.

Artifact Sets

Raid Shadow Legends Artifact Sets

Enchanting Artifacts


Artifact enchanting allows you to improve the Substats of your Artifacts. You need to collect Glyphs from the Faction Wars in order to be able to enchant an Artifact. Glyphs can have a Star Rank of between 1 and 6.

To enchant an Artifact, the Glyph must have the same stat as one of your Artifact’s Substats and must also not be of a higher rank than the Artifact. The higher the rank of a Glyph, the further it will boost the Artifact’s Substat. There are 9 different types of Glyphs that can boost Substats. These can be seen below:

HealthHP substat increased
VitalityHP % substat increased
