    How to Obtain Artifacts

    Artifacts can’t be purchased on the marketplace, but are obtained through quests, combat, and life skill activites.

     

    Artifacts from Grinding Spots

    Many grinding spots, starting with Valencia, have a chance to drop Artifacts and Lightstones (Offense, Defense, and Utility types.)

    The Artifacts and Lightstones listed have a higher drop chance for those monster zones. (Other types may drop, but at a lower chance.)

    View my Grinding Spot Tool for an interactive view of which monster zones drop which Artifacts.

    BDO Grinding Spots for Artifacts and Lightstones

    AP & Accuracy Artifacts

    Marsh’s Artifacts increase offensive power by offering AP or Accuracy. Unfortunately, most require a specific attack type.

    The Monster AP +6 Artifact is preferable because it can be used by all classes and is not dependent upon class damage type.

     

    List of Offensive Effects:

    • +4 Melee AP (Specific Classes Only)
    • +4 Ranged AP (Specific Classes Only)
    • +4 Magic AP (Specific Classes Only)
    • +8 Melee Accuracy (Specific Classes Only)
    • +8 Ranged Accuracy (Specific Classes Only)
    • +8 Magic Accuracy (Specific Classes Only)
    • +6 Monster AP (ALL CLASSES!!!)

     

    Which Attack Type Do I Have?

    Please view our Attack Type by Class Guide

     

    Artifact Effects are separate from Lightstone and Combo Effects.

    Artifact Combinations

    The real power comes through Artifact Combinations.

    Insert 3 to 4 specific Lightstones into 2 Artifacts to create an additional buff, “Combination Effect.”

    • Lightstones can be placed inside Artifacts to create a unique set of buffs.
    • With 3 or 4 specific Lightstones in two Artifacts, it creates a combo effect.
    • The combo effect changes depending on how you combine Lightstones.

    Some awesome effects come at a great cost.

    Deathblow Artifact Combination

    Deathblow Artifact Combination is considered best in slot for PVE because of its high Monster AP and Crit Rate. It’s a highly sought after combo by many players. Ultimate Power does come at a steep silver cost though!

    Because of the marketplace cost, this Lighstone Combination will take some time to obtain via monster zones, bosses, or alchemy.

    Monster AP +16
    Critical Hit Chance +14%

    Infuse Deathblow on 2x Monster AP Artifacts.

    [Deathblow + AP Artifacts]
    Monster AP +28
    Critical Hit Chance +14%

    Death Blow Combination:

    Lighstone of Fire: Predation x2
    Lighstone of Fire: Blade x2
