First up, the Millelith set seems like a supporting artifact that could go well off-field support units. It offers the lucrative 20% HP bonus, and vital attack buff that will be further enhanced with a shield. The only downside is the limited 3 seconds duration of the buff, which will affect its viability. Elemental skills generally come with a rather elongated cooldown that does not synergize with this set.

Safe to say, if things remain the same after the update goes live, this set will not feel as important. On the flip side, the Pale flame feels overpowered on paper, and it could alter a lot of physical DPS builds.

The 2-piece bonus of the artifact set offers a massive 25% boost to physical damage of any unit. The 4-piece bonus of this set is probably the most powerful physical damage bonus in the entire game. It offers a staggering 18% attack boost at a maximum of 2 stacks, and at max stacks, the character will also see the 2-piece set bonus amplified by 100%.

As much as players loved Bloodstained chivalry, this new set will certainly take its place. No physical damage DPS units can ever hope to function without the Pale Flame after 1.5 goes live. Eula will be a brand new 5-star DPS carry unit, and this artifact set seems tailormade for her.
