New in 2.0:

  1. The third location in the first zone is now on a 12-hour timer.
  2. The fifth location in the second zone is now on a 24-hour timer.
  3. There are a lot of artifacts in Inazuma. Do any of them respawn?

can confirm some of them respawn, some dont

Sorry. The third location in the first zone is still on a 24-hour timer.

There is a new spawn location with the Inazuma update at the Whangshu Inn. It’s at the front of the building in a fruits stand before making up to the patio area it’s along the path of Silk Flowers. I’ve been farming it since the update so confirm respawn.

Also to Inazuma, I’m still not sure of a few locations because there are so many one-time farming stops so I’m still testing those. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for that, Warpaint! The fruit stand is on ground level near the eastern corner of the Wangshu Inn.

Don’t forget to take note of daily sparkle count (think its 120?). I feel there are more than enough daily spawns to hit that cap, so now its just finding the optimal routes – finally no more 12hr splits

Some Tips: For faster and less time to get these artifact. (Hope this is helpful)

  1. Use 2 anemo character to have the Impetuous Winds that’ll provide you: (a) 15% Less consumption Stamina, (b) 10% Movement Spd
  2. Consume foods that’ll also help decrease your stamina consumption by 20% – 25% for 900 seconds – 1800 seconds
  3. Use characters that has special talent (e.g. Razor which decreases stamina consumption by 20% or Rosaria that gives 10% movement speed from 18:00 – 6:00)

You will be able to get all the artifacts in maybe 15 minutes or less πŸ˜€

For the stone gate, don’t forget to include your character traveler(geo) or zhongli or albedo which will trigger the wind column when going to #2 artifact.

I also have a party dedicated to artifact which consists of:

  1. Diluc
  2. Sucrose
  3. Ventti
  4. Albedo

I mainly use Diluc for running, coz he sprints faster than the rest of my chars in the party

Kaeya also has talent that decrease stamin consumption by 20%

Yeap, so any character that can save time and speed up your artifact farming is good as well πŸ˜€ so decide which chars you will dedicate to this artifact farming.

Happy farming πŸ˜€

Here’s another tip: Delete all pins that are near teleporters that you use on your artifact run.

Based on Hienkz’s advice I use

  1. Kaeya (20% stamina buff, tall so he dashes well)
  2. Anemo Traveller (2 Anemo characters give 10% speed buff and 15% stacking stamina buff)
  3. Sucrose
  4. Albedo (triggers the wind column for fast access to artifact #2 in Stone Gate)

i think with the new actualization of inazuma we have more spots in liyue, i find one with 3 spots to investigate, i dont know if they respawn in 12 or 24 hours, but is in luhua pool, right of the right tp in luhua pool, you need to tp here and go to right, cross the ”crack?” and you will find a adventurer rest place, here is the spot, i kwon otrer spot but i dint confirmed it

PD: sorry for my bad english x’D

could you add the new locations from inazuma? ^_^

how can i upvote this 10000 times thank you so much

Can somebody else confirm that the first artifact location in Jueyun Karst refreshes every 12 hours instead of every 24 hours? I passed by it cause I needed just a little bit of exp to level Kazuha and I saw the artifacts were available there.

Edit: first three artifact locations. I just checked out the entire Jueyun Karst route and those artifact locations refreshed.

Edit: there’s more to confirm. 3 and 6 in Mt. Aozang, 1-4 and 6 in Wanshu Inn West Beach.
Wangshu Inn West Beach might have a reduced cooldown that’s less than 24 hours but more than 12 since I pass by 1 and 2 to get to 5.

No. After more than 20 hours, none of the locations on the Jueyun Karst has refreshed.

Stone Gate can probably be done faster coming from the new domain close to dragonspine, because if you come from the other tp point you need to do some climbing. You might wanna try it and depending on the results change the guide.
Amazing that you already updated the guide for the 2nd artefact spot at dragonspine, I was searching the web quiet a bit for that but couldn’t find it anywhere else πŸ˜€

For the Stone Gate route, would it be faster to teleport to the new 1.5 domain for the third location?

yeap, faster for #3 artifact on stone gate route

Version 1.5 blocked off the entrance to the free artifacts available in the first part of Dragonspine. Please update the guide to find an alternate route to the entrance.

lol i feel like mihoyo is trolling us

I’ve been doing this for some weeks, and I can say: it’s by far, the best artifact route that I found!
Thank you for that !

Thank you for a truly excellent guide. The artifact shopkeepers seem to reset every Thursday.

you miss 1 spot at wangshu inn basement

no, there’s one in a box by the river I’ve had in my daily route for like a month and a half now, it keeps coming back. Great article otherwise, I need to make a new route with some of these ones I missed.

So this is what it looks like. I got it today and it hasn’t respawned yet. But I can get another screenshot sometime tomorrow with it having a sparkle and artifacts come out

box artifact spawn-min.png

oh I see where you put it now. The route I have has it with the Inn and just reteleporting up to glide over to then glide over to the marsh

Is there a trick on getting x2 or x5 artifact exp when enhancing them or is it completely random? Anyway, thank for making this enhance artifact path!

yes, but it’s really tedious. instead of putting 6 artifacts in all at once, you put only one. personally, i only do it for 3 stars and above. it’s not worth the time to do it for any artifacts of lower level.

good job on making this artifact power farming guide, it helped me a lot on progressing my quests

Opinion: Maybe add number of investigation points on each spot & whether it can be 1* or 2* artifact, as more area in future might mean there will be more investigation points than the allowed limit each day. So it might mean investigating certain spot yield more artifact exp.

Of course, there’s chance it won’t reach the limit as well or it doesn’t have limit.

This is simply my opinion.

Been doing these spots for a few month daily. All of the location have a chance to spawn either a 1* or 2* artifacts

FYI It seems some of the 24h artifact spawns have had their cooldowns reduced in the 1.3 update?

It doesn’t seem things were brought down to 12h, but there’s been multiple locations spawning faster than 24h for me (not sure which ones were all affected yet). E.g., I’ve seen the Qingce VIllage and Sal Terrae spawns around the 16h mark (not sure on exact time yet either).

The updated locations are (going by naming/numbering of this guide):

Mt Aozang 3, 6
Dihua Marsh 4
Qingce Village 1, 2, 3, 4
Stone Gate 2, 3

Still unsure about exact time, but I’m guessing they’re now 16-18h.

If true, it is good because, I generally tend to do 2 days once because of the exact 24 hours spawn time.


I started playing few weeks ago and always wonder how to level up artifacts in genshin impact without using all my resins in domain. I just found out that you can farm them for free on this guide! thank you so much for this information.

You can also get a lot of artifacts from Weekly Bosses and World Bosses πŸ™‚
Happy hunting

I only have a wish, that is hoping miHoYo to change the artifact respawn to reset at 4 am (server reset time).

Found a respawning weapon crate in Dragonspine near the treasure hoarders at a broken cart north east of snow-covered path

ill look into it, can you provide a screenshot of the exact location?

it doesn’t respawn forgive me

This is the best way to grind artifact power without spending resins. Thank you much for all the helpful info!

Excellent map guide, very useful, and the artifact exp is a lot

Loved this artifact locations guide! what do the blue stars mean? guarded by monsters? 12 hours instead of 24?

edit: nvm I’m blind to the legend on the top left. thanks

I checked these locations relatively thoroughly and it seems to me about half of them are on fixed respawn. Specifically, Mt Aozang and Jeuyun Karst seem to count the time since picked (except Aozang 2 and Aozang 4), while most of the rest respawns at a fixed time of day (except Wangshu 5).

That might be important when farming them since you can farm those with fixed respawn every day at around a certain time while you need to farm the relative ones at shifting schedule because you need to be sure it’s more than 12/24 hours since you picked them. I still need to put more research into it to be sure, though.

I just confirmed an important observation likely explaining various strange experiences players have with collecting artifacts.

There’s a daily limit on how many “Investigate” spots a player can investigate every day. That includes these artifact spawns as well as drops of cooking ingredients, minerals, and I guess even those that drop just Mora. I don’t know the exact number yet but it’s not very high and these artifact drops use up a large part of it. If you exceed your daily quota, the game will not put any new Investigate sparks into the world as you travel through it, but if the time is up to respawn the drop, the respawn will happen on your visit and the next respawn time will be set by it even if you don’t get to see the drop.

These “muted” investigate spots will appear the next day (I guess the limit resets at 4 am) and can be collected. Among others, this may explain why some players can see artifacts respawn in a shorter time than 12/24 hours.

thanks for the info, maybe that is why i never had a problem confirming the artifact spawn because those are the only “investigate” i did when playing. In your test, how many investigate you made before reaching the daily investigate limit?

This is a pretty well-made farming route for artifact exp. I’ve been struggling quite a bit with artifacts after reaching AR40, especially since I’ve almost entirely exhausted all the chests on my map. Really appreciate the routes!

So far this is the best guide on how to farm artifacts in genshin impact! thank you so much for sharing this info

this is the most inclusive and comprehensive artifact route I’ve seen so far. I don’t believe there are any spots that are missing, well done!

Good to see the dragonspine artifact route update!

It is a bit weird…but today I swear that some of the 24-hour locations I farmed became active again in less than 12 hours from when I farmed them. The spots I remember are:

Mt. Aozang locations 5-6
Jueyun Karst locations 1-3
Wangshu Inn Beach West locations 1-3.

I checked the other locations that I usually visit for my 24-hour run, but they were inactive. I happened to do Ganyu’s story questline before I went to check, maybe that had something to do with this?

i believe this is a bug, happened alot when doing a quest but mostly on event time.

Thank you for the guide!

there is one more site of artifacts in the campside near Dragonspine they are in some boxes there

those are non-respawning artifacts and I already linked a map for non-respawning artifacts at the end of my guide.

Umm there are a few more spots to be added from Dragonspine (those are about 5-10 new or more spots)

Heads up, there are two new dragonspine respawnable artifact locations, one’s located by the teleporter south of Wyrmrest valley, and the other is located by the teleporter to the northwest of Starglow Cavern. There’s a reddit post on it, and I’ve just confirmed at the very least that they do respawn (not sure if 12 hr or 24 hr).

Waiting for an update now that Dragonspine’s out. I only know 2 locations where artifacts can respawn in but maybe there’s more that others found

Now since Dragonspine is arrived i noticed with exploring way more area’s for Artifact farm?

Can we get a update from that in the future by any chance?

So today i already farm artifact at 01.00 PM GMT+8, but accidentally when i back to find chest i see Qingce Village Route 5 & 7 spawned again at 7.38 PM. Maybe cause this game online mihoyo can reset the map? Im clueless about this

Mt. Aozang Route #4 Is not even there? I checked yesterday and today i dont see any investigate area’s there?

i found a small location of x2 spawns just to the right of Luhua pool, theres one of those green tents just behind the broken bridge ,i dont know if its 24/12h , but i see that location isnt listed on here x)

There are a couple of artifacts at the bottom of Wangshu Inn, at the crates just next to the main stairs (near Dandy)

As I was doing the 12h Artifacts, I figured I might as well check that all the 24h Markers are still correct too.
I did both the 24h and 12h Artifacts at 13:40 21.11.2020 and checked all of them again at 2:30 22.11.2020 (12h 50m later)
It seems Mt. Aozang #3 is respawning every 12h.

I have started keeping track of all my artifact runs and will try to observe respawn behavior more closely over the next week.

At qingce village got reset because the event unrencociled stars bug. Already farm twice at #1 #2 #3 #4
Maybe someday if some map got bug again, we can use wisely for farm artifact

This version is better than the previous one.

In Qingce Village Route Stone Gate #5, Wangshu Inn Route – West #6 and Mt. Tianheng Route #1, dont respawn in 12 hours

wow thanks man, it help me a lot πŸ˜€

I check this every day and noticed that it just got updated… I kinda liked the old one better because it also showed amounts so I could choose to only do the higher amount locations if I was pressed for time or feeling lazy. Any chance you might be able to add the amounts to this one as well please? And out of curiousity, why the change? Are these routes more optimized and streamlined? It kinda seems like it but I’m not positive, even though I checked it every day I didn’t memorize it.

thank you for giving so much time making genshin artifact farming map route for us.

Thankyou for this farming route, love it!

Love how your guide is so clear and succinct. If I had to give my 2 cents, though; it would be better if you didn’t include non-respawning artifacts as part of ‘the route’. To remove arrows leading to them and color them differently would be sufficient.

thanks for making this genshin impact artifact farm route for us! really helped a lot especially me that just started to farm for artifact upgrade materials.

Thank you so much this helped me a lot!

thank you for sharing your artifact farming route!

Finally found this! watching yt videos takes too much time, i can say this is the best genshin impact farming route for artifacts.

some locations you can get 2x instead 1x where you put. Otherwise 10/10 guide found many chest, and different stuff while exploring those.

Very informative guide and you save my life! thank you!

Great concise guide, hope to see more content in future!

Thanks for the guide, it’s well-organized artifact farming in genshin impact and thankfully not a 30-minute youtube that I have to sit through.

Nice route, ty !

This is such a big help especially because I am constantly running out of artifacts to upgrade with and I don’t want to destroy my 3 stars because I can’t tell what I am destroying until the new patch comes along.

Thank you so much for this artifact farming route!

It was fun following this route. I found a couple of seeles, geoculus and challenges I haven’t done yet!
