PROTECTION: Armour enchantments are arguably more important than any offensive enchantments

While you are at full HP, you deal increased ranged and melee damage.

Health Synergy

When activating any artefact, you regain a small amount of health.

Fire Trail

Rolling creates a trail of fire behind you, which deals damage to mobs for four seconds


Grants a small chance to deflect incoming projectiles.


For every one hundred blocks explored on the map, you regain a small amount of health.

Speed Synergy

When activating any artefact, you gain +20% movement speed for a short time.

Surprise Gift


Whenever you use a healing potion, you sometimes create random consumables.

Every time you level up, you’ll get an enchantment point.
