Artifact weapons

Artifacts are powerful end-game weapons that can gain levels by being infused with Artifact Power.
As your Artifact Weapon progresses it will gain attack damage and increase the total damage output of your character versus monsters. The bonus is active as long as you are wearing the weapon.
Please keep in mind that this bonus does NOT apply in PvP.
You can receive your Artifact Weapon by completing the Spectral Awakening quest.


Artifact Power

Artifact Power is the experience equivalent for your weapon. It follows a different formula for the required experience points per level than the character level though.
Artifact Power can be obtained by using Artifact Tokens.


Artifact Progression

As mentioned previously, your Artifact Weapon will progress as it gains Artifact Power.
The current progression tiers are as follows:

  • Tier 1 - Artifact Level 1 - The baseline tier when you first receive your Artifact Weapon
  • Tier 2 - Artifact Level 5
  • Tier 3 - Artifact Level 15
  • Tier 4 - Artifact Level 30
  • Tier 5 - Artifact Level 50

Artifact Tokens

Artifact Tokens grant Artifact Power for your weapon upon using. They can be obtained through numerous activities on Cyntara.
There is currently a set of 5 total tokens that you can find on Cyntara. They reward different amounts of Artifact Power and the type of token you will get depends on the difficulty of the content where you get them from.
The amount of Artifact Power received from Artifact Tokens is further multiplied based on your Artifact Knowledge level.

  • Commendation - 25 AP
  • Royal Commendation - 75 AP
  • Bloody Parchment - 150 AP
  • Victorious Token - 250 AP
  • Triumphant Symbol - 420 AP

Artifact Token Sources

The artifact power tokens can be obtained from the following content:

  • Daily Quests
  • Dungeons
  • Some Bosses
  • Monster Tasks
  • Prey Tasks

Artifact Knowledge

Artifact Knowledge is a multiplier that applies to the base value of Artifact Tokens. The multiplier is applied the moment you loot a token and does not apply retroactively to previously looted tokens.
The Artifact Knowledge can be increased by completing the Artifact Knowledge Research by talking to the Artifact Master NPC.
The Artifact Knowledge is initially locked to a maximum level of 25 however the limit can be increased to level 40 by completing the last mission of the Spectral Awakening Quest.


Knowledge Catch Up

Additionally the research is sped up for people that just received their Artifact Weapon.
Visiting the Artifact Master NPC will automatically make your Artifact Knowledge level advance to 1/3rd of the highest Artifact Knowledge level on the server.
Additionally, until you reach 2/3rds of the highest Artifact Knowledge level on the server, the research time will be reduced from 22 hours to 5 hours per research.


Artifact Infusion

Artifact Weapons can be additionally infused using regular weapons to receive extra damage.
For example if you have a Nightmare Blade and sacrifice it to infuse the Artifact Sword, your Artifact Sword will receive +5 attack, whereas using the Clement Sword would add +10 attack to the Artifact Sword.
Please keep in mind that this upgrade is not additive, you will simply receive the highest bonus applied. You also cannot downgrade nor remove the infusion to receive the item back.
The infusion process additionally requires special ores that can be obtained through the mining profession.
