Genshin Impact’s world may be incredibly beautiful, but it is also home to some very dangerous creatures. In fact, Teyvat’s most fearsome foes can leave you high and dry if your characters aren’t equipped with the game’s four-star Artifacts. Find out which Artifacts you should be using in Genshin Impact in our handy guide.

While equipping high damage weapons will help you shred through the Hilichurl hordes and obliterate the game’s monolithic bosses, you’ll also need to kit your party out with Genshin Impact’s best Artifacts. Whether you’re a fresh-faced beginner just starting out on your journey or a veteran adventurer looking to increase your DPS, you’ll want to add these Artifacts to your collection. 

Of course, the chances of obtaining a five-star Artifact will largely depend on your Adventure Rank and World Level. The higher your Adventure Rank, the better your chances of snagging game-changing loot. While five-star items are always stronger than the game’s lower-tier loot, there are a number of four-star pieces you should consider upgrading ASAP. 

In order to help you save your upgrade materials and time, we’ve listed the five best four-star Artifacts you should be using. 

Martial Artist

The Martial Artist set will take your damage to new heights.

This particular Artifact is one of the best four-star damage-based Artifacts in the current game, so you’ll want to equip this on your main DPS as soon as you get it.

The reason why the Martial Artist’s Artifact is so strong is because of its two-piece set bonus, which increases normal and charged attack damage by 15%. This may seem like an incremental stat increase, but when you combine this with the Artifact’s main attack stat, you’ll be dishing out plenty of lethal damage in no time. 

Resolution of Sojourner

The Resolution of Sojourner is great for those that wish to increase their DPS even further.

The Resolution of Sojourner is another Artifact that is purely based on beefing up your damage output and works wonders when equipped with the Martial Artist set. When you equip two pieces from this Artifact tree, you’ll gain an 18% increase to your character’s damage.

Depending on the pieces you use, you’ll either receive added health or attack from the Artifact’s main stat. While we don’t recommend equipping the full set, doing so will grant you a 30% increase to your charged attack crit rate. It’s certainly not hard to see why the Resolution of Sojourner remains a popular pick. 

Instructor

Elemental Reactions are a sure-fire way to melt through your enemies’ health bars.

While dealing plenty of damage with standard attacks is always going to be beneficial, the Instructor set increases your character’s ability power. After all, the best Genshin Impact players are constantly switching between their team’s members in order to apply deadly Elemental Reactions like Vaporize, Melt, Overloaded, Superconduct, and Electro-Charged.

However, the amount of damage you’ll deal will largely depend on how much Elemental Mastery your character has. Fortunately, the Instructor set is all about boosting this elemental stat and increases your Mastery by 80, making your combos hit harder than ever before. 

The Exile

Ability cooldown reduction is always going to be incredibly useful in Genshin Impact.

Setting up Elemental Reactions is arguably the most fun and efficient way to take down your foes, so there’s nothing worse than having to wait for lengthy ability cooldowns. Not only does this greatly disrupt the flow of battle, it also means you’re not able to deal as much damage. This where the Exile set comes in. Equipping two Artifacts from the Exile tree will give you 20% Energy Recharge, allowing you to quickly get back to unleashing your lethal abilities and deadly ultimates. 

Meanwhile, the four-piece set bonus regenerates two energy for other party members every 2s for 6s whenever an Elemental Burst is used. Consider equipping the full Exile set on any support characters that rely on their abilities to greatly enhance their elemental output. 

Berserker

Who doesn’t like to cut through waves of monsters with deadly crits?

As the name suggests, the Berserker set is tailored around unleashing lethal hits that leave your foes groveling in the dirt.

If you choose to equip two Exile Artifacts, then your character will gain a 12% increase to their crit rate. This may seem like a relatively small percentage, but when you have a weapon with a quick attack animation and one that has a decent crit chance, you’ll be able to chunk through your foe’s health in no time.

While the Berserker set is a lot more situational than the Martial Artist and Resolution of Sojourner, it’s still a great choice for those that wish to go for a satisfying crit build.

Rocket League’s first season since going cross-platform and free-to-play is coming to an end, but that means Season 2 is around the corner, and it’s set to be even more exciting than the first, with new cars, cosmetics, a new arena, and more.

Rocket League has reached new heights since going cross-platform and free-to-play. It’s become more accessible and merged its player-base into one massive community. These changes have helped the game explode in popularity once again.

The first season in the new era was a huge success. It introduced some new features and improvements that were well-received among old and new players alike. However, the show must go on, and although Season 1 is coming to an end, Season 2 is on the horizon. Here’s everything you need to know.

Rocket Pass: New Cars and Cosmetics

Rocket League Season 2 includes an exciting new Rocket Pass. It’s jam-packed with 70 tiers of unlocks that all revolve around a common theme; lights and sounds. It comes in two tiers, although the free one is limited.

Players will be able to get their hands on everything from fresh new decals, fancy light show explosions, and wheels that look like subwoofers. However, a brand new car exclusive to Rocket Pass Premium is the biggest drawcard.

Rocket Pass Premium owners will unlock the R3MX immediately. It’s an exotic sports car with a cyberpunk twist. But the excitement doesn’t end there. They’ll also be able to unlock an even better version, the R3MX GXT, in the final tier.

Neon Fields

Rocket League is not all about cars and cosmetics, though. It’s also about the bright and colorful arenas that host all the battles. In Season 2, players will be graced with an exciting new level called Neon Fields.

It has an awesome retro theme with neon shades of blue, pink, purple, and yellow. It also stays true to the lights and sounds with an enormous speaker attached to the roof with an equalizer behind the stands.

Player Anthems

Last but not least, Rocket League Season 2 will introduce a new customization option called Player Anthems. You’ll be able to select a song from Rocket League’s awesome soundtrack and have it blasting in the background every time you score a goal.

What’s more, Rocket League Season 2 will also feature new music and content from Kaskade, an immensely popular DJ affiliated with the Monstercat label. Some of his songs, including two new ones, will be available as Player Anthems too.

When does Rocket League Season 2 launch?

Rocket League Season 2 launches on December 9. However, the pre-season update goes live a day earlier on December 8 at 4 pm PDT. 

The update will also include next-gen improvements on Xbox Series X and S and other quality-of-life tweaks and bug fixes.
