[Top 10] Genshin Impact Best 3 Star Artifacts That Are Excellent

Don't worry. Your bag has enough space for all your artifacts!

One of the best ways to increase your characters’ stats is by equipping them with a good artifact set. These sets are obtained from Domains and their rarity vary between 5-star and 2-star. While many people think only 5-star artifacts are valuable and throw away the others, we don’t have the same opinion. In this guide, we’ll show you 10 excellent artifact sets that have only 3 stars.

10. Tiny Miracle

The Tiny Miracle is not the best 3-star artifact set you’ll find in the game but one that can still be useful for some characters. For example, at the start of the game, you may not have shielders or healers, while also having low HP. If you equip the Tiny Miracle set, your Elemental Resistance will increase so that even if you get hit, you won’t die so easily.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • All Elemental RES increased by 20%.
  • Incoming Elemental DMG increases corresponding Elemental RES by 30% for 10s. Can only occur once every 10s.

9. The Exile

Both batteries and burst-based characters can benefit from this set a lot. For example, Bennett should be using his burst as often as he can. Well, with this set not only has he more Energy Recharge and can activate it better, but by using it the whole team gets their own burst recharged. Get ready for a burst party!

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • Energy Recharge +20%
  • Using an Elemental Burst regenerates 2 Energy for all party members (excluding the wearer) every 2s for 6s. This effect cannot stack.

8. Scholar

The Scholar artifact set is very similar to the Exile set, while also having improvements. These improvements show themselves in the 4-Piece Set passive ability. Even if the only ranged characters benefit from this, you can make a team composed only of these two weapon users. You don’t need to use the burst and you even get more particles than in the last set!

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • Energy Recharge +20%
  • Gaining Elemental Particles or Orbs gives 3 Energy to all party members who have a bow or a catalyst equipped. Can only occur once every 3s.

7. Defender’s Will

A perfect set for Defense-based characters like Albedo or Noelle. While the 4-Piece Set passive ability is not the best it could have, the first one increases Defense by 30%. It may not be useful for someone like Diluc, but it is for Albedo or Noelle, who increase their DMG output just by increasing their DEF. Before Husk of Opulent Dreams was out, this was the perfect choice for them.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • DEF +30%
  • For each different element present in your own party, the wearer's Elemental RES to that corresponding element is increased by 30%.

6. Instructor

With just a look we can see that the Instructor artifact set is perfect for enabling support characters that base their help on creating Elemental Reactions. For example, you could use it on Kazuha to help Raiden Shogun with Swirl; or maybe use it on Xingqiu to help Yoimiya create Vaporize. If you don’t know, Elemental Mastery increases the damage made by reactions, so it’s really powerful.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • Increases Elemental Mastery by 80.
  • Upon triggering an Elemental Reaction, increases all party members' Elemental Mastery by 120 for 8s.

5. Gambler

This Gambler set is found in the same Domain as the Noblesse Oblige artifact set, which has similar properties. DPS or Sub-DPS characters whose main skill is their Elemental Skill will have lots of fun with this set. For people like Yelan, not only does it increase her DMG, but it can cancel its CD after defeating an opponent as well.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • Increases Elemental Skill DMG by 20%.
  • Defeating an opponent has a 100% chance to remove Elemental Skill CD. Can only occur once every 15s.

4. Brave Heart

Ayaka, Ayato, Eula…There’re lots of characters that can benefit from this set, and that’s because it’s really basic as well as really useful. The Attack stat is needed by pretty much every character in the game. Mostly by DPSs. Moreover, an increase in DMG by 30% is nothing to scoff at, and when fighting bosses can make the battle easier.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • ATK +18%.
  • Increases DMG by 30% against opponents with more than 50% HP.

3. Resolution of Sojourner

Now in the top 3, we find Resolution of Sojourner. This fancy-named artifact set is also good for DPS, specifically those that centred their gameplay around Normal and Charged Attacks. This set’s 4-piece Set ability is what makes it amazing: it increases the CRIT Rate of a character’s Charged Attack. This means that Itto wouldn’t have to worry about this stat with other methods, because it would increase by itself.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • ATK +18%
  • Increases Charged Attack CRIT Rate by 30%.

2. Martial Artist

The Martial Artist artifact set has similar demography as the Resolution of Sojourner, both centring around Charged Attacks. This one, however, increases both Normal and Charged Attacks’ DMG, being a huge help for DPS like Ayaka or Keqing, who need all the DMG they can get in their Normal and Charged Attacks.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • Increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 15%.
  • After using Elemental Skill, increases Normal Attack and Charged Attack DMG by 25% for 8s.

1. Berserker

Finally, what we thought was the most excellent 3-star artifact set was the Berserker set. Although overall DMG is good by itself, the most difficult to increase stats are (as always) CRIT DMG and CRIT Rate. With this set, your character can get up to 36% more chance of dealing a critical attack. Although you should not take any shielders or healers with you so that your HP doesn’t increase more than 70% of its total.

What Makes This Artifact Great:

  • CRIT Rate +12%
  • When HP is below 70%, CRIT Rate increases by an additional 24%.

5-star artifact sets being as popular in build as they are, you may not have even looked at the passive abilities of the 3-star artifacts up til now. Well then, I hope now that you have a little more idea about what other options you have, you can choose one of these sets for the new characters that are coming home from Sumeru!
