AFK Journey Artifacts Tier List and Guide

AFK Journey Artifact Tier List and Guide

Artifacts are a type of gear in AFK Journey that will give special bonuses, skills, and effects to your heroes. Currently, there are six artifacts in AFK Journey. Each one of the artifacts is unique and has special effects. During battle preparation, you can equip one artifact that will increase your heroes’ stats and give them effects.

This means that artifacts are not tied to heroes, which is great. You do not have to waste time leveling artifacts for each hero, like in other games. Getting artifacts is extremely simple. All you have to do in order to get all the artifacts is complete the campaign. It will take you some time if you are a new player. If you just started, it will take you 1-2 weeks to get them all.

Artifacts Tier List

There are six artifacts available in AFK Journey. Each one of them is unique and has different uses, but that does not mean that they are all good. Some artifacts are simply better than others, and they will perform better. It is crucial to know what the best artifacts are in AFK Journey, especially when you get to the end game, where everything matters. This artifact tier list was created based on our in-game testing in various game modes, but there are a few things that you should take into consideration.

When you are choosing what artifact to use, think about: do you want to increase damage, do you want to increase survivability, whether you are doing PVP or PVE, what team you are using, etc. If you do not care about that, then simply use Artifacts that are rated as Tier S. Tier S artifacts are the best based on our testing and testing done by high-end players.
