Minecraft Dungeons artifacts guide

How to equip artifacts in Minecraft Dungeons and the best ones we've seen so far


What are the best artifacts in Minecraft Dungeons? If you’re still getting your head around artifacts and how to use them, we’ll explain everything you need to know about these equippable character abilities, including all the artifacts we’ve seen so far.

Artifacts are loot that can be found from enemy drops, in chests, or as an end of level reward. You can use them to aid you in battle by equipping them as abilities to your character. You have room for three artifact slots for your character, and can swap artifacts in and out at any point. This is especially handy if you need an extra boost from your ability in a certain situation. To equip an artifact, simply bring up the inventory screen and drag an artifact into one of the available slots below your character.

Artifacts range from common to very rare and you can salvage any old or duplicate artifacts for emeralds (the in-game currency). There are tons of artifacts to discover in Minecraft Dungeons, but here are all the artifacts we’ve seen so far.
