The best artifacts to use in Minecraft Dungeons

Minecraft Dungeons has finally landed as is a huge hit.

The dungeon crawler take on Minecraft's expansive universe offers a lot of customization when it comes to combat.

One of the keys to surviving waves of mobs and battling the toughest bosses is using artifacts.

Minecraft Dungeons artifacts

Minecraft Dungeons is full of items that can help you in combat. These items are known as artifacts.

Each one can be found at different level values, and obviously the higher the level the better the effect it has.

How to find artifacts in Minecraft Dungeons

While these artifacts can be found around the levels and come as rewards for defeating bosses, there is no guarantee that a certain artifact will be in a certain place.

PICK WISELY: You can only take three artifacts into battle

While that means you can't be sure of finding the exact one you want, it does mean you have to think on your feet and find inventive ways of surviving. Which makes the game even better.

Buy artifacts

You can also buy a random artifact in your camp.

To do this you need visit the Wandering Trader, who appears after you defeat Pumpkin Patch on Default difficulty.

ORDER TO GO: Grab a new artifact from the Wandering Trader

It's not cheap, but as emeralds are pretty easy to get you should buy at least one every time you get back to camp.

How to use artifacts

You can equip three artifacts to your quick bar.

These are used with X, Y, and B on Xbox, or Square, Triangle, and Circle on PS4.

DEAL DAMAGE: Hit multiple foes at once with this one

It is best to have a nice balance between offensive, defensive, and effect artifacts if you are playing by yourself.

If you've partied up then you should coordinate your artifacts so that all your bases are covered.

The best artifacts to use in Minecraft Dungeons

It is tough to say which one artifact is better than all the rest.

It depends on your own playstyle, the level, and type of mob you are up against.

However, things like the Flaming Quiver are always useful, as are both Totems.

Anything that summons a companion is useful if you are playing by yourself as it can help break up waves of mobs.
