Artifact Trait Costs
Patch 7.2 changes the cost of Artifact traits and the way Artifact Power is rewarded.

  • Artifact Power rewarded from Mythic Keystone runs will be normalized based on instance length.
  • Artifact Power costs will not be flat for the final trait, but continue to be exponential.
  • Someone who earns twice as much AP as you will have an artifact that’s only ~1.5% stronger; someone who earns four times as much AP as you should only be 3% stronger.
  • You can see the full list of trait costs at the bottom of this page.



Unlocking New Artifact Traits
Unlocking the new traits is done by completing a series of quests, with several different versions that depend on your role.





Final Artifact Traits
The old final Artifact Trait has been changed and a new final trait has been added.




Artifact Knowledge
Artifact Knowledge has been expanded to Level 50! New Artifact Research Compendiums allow you to purchase up to Artifact Knowledge 45 for your alts.
