Call of Dragons Artifacts can signifi¬≠cantly impact your heroes’ stats and abilities, so it’s important to choose the right ones for each hero. But since there are over 40 Artifacts currently available in the game, each having its own purpose, it can be overwhelming to decide which ones are the best Artifacts for your Legions. That’s why we created this comprehensive Call of Dragons Artifact tier list that ranks each of them according to their effectiveness and strength in battle.

How we ranked the Artifacts

We ranked the Artifacts into 4 tiers, from Tier S (Strongest) to Tier C (Weakest). We took into consideration their overall power for both, PvP and PvE combat modes, their bonuses and skills, and their overall usefulness.

At the bottom of this list, you also have 3 tables that include all the Artifacts in the game, ranked according to their power and split into 3 categories, PvP, PvE/Defense, and non-combat/productivity. This way, you can easily find what Artifact best fits your needs for a particular activity.
