Lost Valley Domain
Lost Valleys is the name of the new artifact domain in Genshin Impact 2.6. It will be located on the surface of the new region: The Chasm.
Players will obtain the following two new sets of Artifacts Vermillion Hereafter and Echoes of an Offering.
|Artifact Name||2 Pieces Set Effect||4 Pieces Set Effect|
|Vermillion Hereafter||ATK +18%||After using an Elemental Burst, the character will gain a buff, increasing their ATK by 8% for 16s. When the character loses HP, Their ATK will further increase by 10%. This increase can occur up to once every 0.8s, max 4 stacks.|
|Echoes of an Offering||ATK +18%||Normal Attack has a 36% chance to increase Normal Attack DMG by 60% every 0.3s. The buff expires after 0.05s after the Normal Attack that deals DMG. If a Normal Attack doesn't trigger the buff, the next NA will be 20% more likely to produce it.|
Despite Xiao being one of the best DPS in the game, he doesn't have a dedicated set of artifacts. Well, for those fans of the Hunter of Demons. Genshin Impact will introduce the Vermillion Hereafter.
The Artifact set seems tailor-made for Xiao and his playstyle. Even the design of the mask looks like the one of the Yaksha.
When the character loses HP, Their ATK will further increase by 10%. This increase can occur up to once every 0.8s, max 4 stacks.
Echoes of an Offering
The second artifact set of the new domain will buff Normal Attack DMG. Checking in Ayato Abilities, Echoes of an Offering seems the best in a slot built for Ayaka, big brother.
Despite being tailor-made for Ayato, the set will suit other characters like Xingqiu, Kokomi, and probably Yelan.
