miHoYo introducing two new artifact sets in Genshin Impact

The two new artifact sets are Emblem of Severed Fate and Shimenawa’s Reiniscence. Emblem of Severed Fate will be very good on support or SUB-DPS characters, while Shimenawa’s Reiniscence looks promising for main damage dealers.

Since the game’s launch, miHoYo has released four new artifact sets, and all four work on specific types of characters based on their element. It’s interesting to see developers introducing new artifact sets which can work on most of the characters in the game.

Emblem of Severed Fate

The two-piece set bonus of Emblem of Severed Fate increases the Energy Recharge by 20%. Many characters require as much energy to get their burst as soon as possible. Furthermore, the four-piece set bonus is quite interesting and has huge potential. It increases Elemental Burst DMG by 25% of Energy Recharge. A maximum of 75% bonus DMG can be obtained in this way.

Characters like Bennet, Beidou, Xingqiu, and Xiangling get the most benefits. Although Beidou is a main damage dealer and this set will not increase its normal attack damage but sure will help in getting her burst quicker. Beidou has an energy cost of 80 because of which you always have to run another Electro character with her. However, with the new Emblem of Severed Fate artifact, this strategy will change, surely.

miHoYo indeed introduced this new set for the main damage dealer. The two-piece set bonus increases the ATK by 18% just like Gladiator’s set. Interestingly, the four-piece set bonus is unique and is game-changing. It states “When casting an Elemental Skill, if the character has 15 or more Energy, they lose 15 Energy and Normal/Charged/Plunging Attack DMG is increased by 50% for 10s.”

Without a doubt, this set looks perfect for Yoimiya. Mainly because just like Hu Tao, Yoimiya’s normal attack gets influenced with Pyro after using her elemental skill. This will set will increase her damage abruptly and just like Childe and Hu Tao, Yoimiya’s elemental skill will play an important role in her kit. Other than Yoimiya, characters like Ganyu, Yanfei, and Keqing can also gain enormous benefits.
