TierArtifactExplanation
S+
Dura's Call
This is undoubtedly the strongest artifact in the game, especially after you unlock its level 5 effect. This artifact gives a huge haste buff and energy generation rate buff to your hero. If you have Call level 5 and the hero using this artifact is killed, all remaining energy is shared between allied heroes.
S
The Barricade
One of the most useful artifacts in the game because it protects your strongest ally. This artifact basically gives a shield to your strongest ally when they suffer fatal damage, preventing them from dying.
S
Dual Divinity
It is the strongest artifact for most celerity heroes who can dive into the enemy team. It gives a great attack and defensive buff to your hero when they are on the enemy side of the battlefield.
S
Dura's Eye
You need to upgrade this artifact to level 5 to unlock its true potential. It is a good artifact when it is below level 5 but it becomes one of the strongest artifacts in the game when you unlock the level 5 because of its huge crit damage buff.
A
Verdant Longbow
Great artifact for celerity heroes who have a great normal attack. It also gives a good attack and acceleration buff. It is outclassed by Eye level 5 in most situations, but it is still a strong artifact.
A
Windbinder
Very useful artifact on situations where you need the mage to activate the ultimate as soon as possible.
A
Warden of the Arcane
It is by far the best sorcery artifact to boost a mage's attack. Sometimes havaing a higher damage is better than ulting faster, so this artifact can outclass the other two sorcery artifacts in many situations.
B
Winged Warden
There are very specific situations where this artifact will activate your hero's ultimate even faster than Windbinder. Or situations where this artifact will activate your hero's ultimate fast enough to make it useful, but it will be more worth it than Windbinder because it won't give you an energy regeneration nerf right after the first ultimate.
B
The Oceanic Strings
It increases a support's healing potential. It is not a super strong artifact, but it is the most useful sustenance artifact.
B
Shroud of Verdure
Very useful in some situations because it gives a shield to your hero right at the beginning of the battle.
B
Chaos Bringer
It is by far the best artifact of might class. It is outclassed by Eye level 5 in most situations, but it is still a great artifact.
C
Waistband of Resilience
It gives a decent shield to your hero and deals a decent amount of damage to the enemies.
C
Tidebearer
It is a decent defensive artifact to increase your support's survivability.
C
Carnage
There are specific situations where this artifact will do better than Chaos Bringer. But these situations are very rare.
C
Dura's Blade
It gives a good accuracy and attack buff to your hero. It is usually outclassed by most offensive artifacts, but it can be useful on longer battles.
C
Life's Limit
Niche artifact that can block a ranged attack and deal AoE damage. It is great on very specific situations.
D
Seraphic Tide
Decent artifact that buff your allies and debuff your enemies. But Call and the other two sustenance artifacts are usually even more useful for every support hero.
D
Dura's Grace
It is the only artifact that can give you a dodge buff. So it can be useful in some situations.
D
Dura's Conviction
It is useful on niche situations because of it level 5 effect where you unleashes a shockwave that knocks back any nearby enemies.
D
Dura's Chalice of Vitality
Mediocre artifact. The only reason why this is not on F-tier is because warriors do not have any defensive artifact, so this can be decent for warriors in some situations.
F
Pauldron of Burning Fury
There is literally no reason to use this artifact over Chaos Bringer, Carnage, Eye or Call.
F
Dura's Drape
The health recovery buff is not good enough to make this artifact useful on late game.
