Artifacts: Types & Uniques
Artifacts are a way to push your immortals’ power during the late game. Grinding Artifacts is very resource intense, so it’s advisable to not prioritise them over building and research upgrades.
That being said, the right Artifact Rolls on the right Immortal can turn tides and give you a very large advantage over your foe. Artifacts are very powerful and with the introduction of Unique Artifacts their importance has grown further.
