Total Combo Effects

All of the “Total Combo Effects” listed in this guide are calculated by adding together the Set effect and the individual effects on each of the lightstones. This allows you to see what the actual total effects are and makes it easier to compare the total stats.

  • For example: in the [Dedication] combat EXP combo listed below, the set effect of wearing Wind: Alert (Combat) x4 is 300% Combat EXP, however, each of the lightstones themselves give +25% EXP each, bringing the total to 400%.

PVE Artifacts

Best in Slot Artifacts and Lightstones - BDFoundry (13) Kabua’s Artifact is the best in-slot artifact available, with superior item effects compared to other available PVE artifacts.

Unlike other artifacts, Kabua’s Artifact can be registered and purchased on the Central Market, but cannot be equipped by season characters.

PVE Defensive Options

All three of these Lightstone combos are great for both newer players who are lacking the DP to grind Elvia spots and veteran players who would like more survivability for end-game spots.

PVE Offensive Options

Both of the top 3 lightstone combos are offensive lightstone combos that are effective at any grind spot and are a more general PVE combo.

Vicious Shadow is a very good starter set for both mid-tier grind spots such as Centaurs, all the way up to end-game spots like Elvia Orcs, Sycraia, Dehkia Lantern spots, and Darkseeker’s Retreat/Yzrahid Highlands.

If you have high DP you can swap from Vicious Shadow to All-Out-Attack. This combo reduces your DP and Evasion, but provides more AP and higher Critical Hit Damage. It is the best-in-slot set for many spots as long as you can take the DP loss.

For some spots such as Elvia Hexe, Oluns, Elvia Quint Hill, etc. The Deathblow combo is sometimes considered best in slot. However, for certain classes, you can reach 100% Critical Hit Rate more easily and don’t need the Critical Hit Rate from Deathblow. For these classes, you are better off sticking with Vicious Shadow or All-Out-Attack. If you are unsure which to pick, ask for advice in your Class Discord Server.

In addition to these combos, you may also want to invest in the Species damage lightstone combos for certain spots. (Eg. [The Wild: Demihuman] combo is great at Elvia Orc Camp!)

Species damage is good to use if you are over the Monster AP Cap at a certain grind spot.

Beginner to BiS Setup

  • With this setup, you will use any 3 artifacts to start with and swap between 2 of them for different combo effects depending on what you need
  • Always keep Artifact #1 equipped, then swap between Artifact #2 or Artifact #3
  • The 6 lightstones for the beginner setup are pretty easy and cheap to get, just preorder them on the central market and wait!
  • There are two expensive/rare lightstones = Earth: Disrupt and Fire: Strike, these will take a while to preorder or grind for.
  • When you get these 2 extra lightstones, redo your setup. You can extract the lightstones for 10 million silver each.
  • Now you will have 4 artifacts total and can swap between the 2 sets.
  • The bottom setups are considered the BEST IN SLOT! Everyone should have them to start with, and afterward, you can collect others for specific scenarios.
