Crusader Kings 2 How To Get Artifacts
Updated October 11, 2022, by Ritwik Mitra: Crusader Kings 3 is a truly riveting grand strategy game that will keep players hooked for hours on end once they get to grips with the many complex mechanics of the game. What makes this game such a massive achievement is its incredible accessibility, with the title being one of the best ways to experience the amazing depth of Paradox Interactive's grand strategy offerings. A big part of the game is the various artifacts that players can use to enhance the efficiency of their rule, especially when it comes to its historic artifacts. Here are some of the best ones that players can get in the game.
Historical artifacts like the al-Taj al-Sharif can help increase a ruler's Prestige quite a bit. It adds a +1 bonus to a ruler's Prestige while also increasing their opinion with members of the same faith and increasing development by 20% in the floodplains they control.
The Bells of Santiago is one of the most unique artifacts in the entire game. It changes its effects according to which faith is using it, which is pretty neat and makes it worth using on multiple playthroughs.
The Mantle of the Prophet is easily one of the most valuable historical artifacts on this list. It gives a bonus to every metric the player can gather in the game, making the wait infinitely less exhausting.
One of the most powerful artifacts on this list, the Reichskrone has one incredible benefit. It increases the player's vassal limit to 25. This allows them to split territories around easily without creating too many power-hungry vassals in the process.
While equipped, all artifacts increase food consumption by 0.5 units per turn per artifact. Crowned players get a discounted cost of 0.25 units per turn per artifact. This penalty is rounded down, meaning that PCs who are not crowned can equip a single artifact without penalty, while those who are crowned can equip three.
Most artifacts can only be destroyed by being sacrificed to a deity or fed to the Demented Ratling. Notable exceptions include the potion of literacy, which disappears after it is drunk, and the ring of the master cat, which will explode if the PC kills a cat while wearing it. The Elemental Chaos Orbs cannot be destroyed by any means whatsoever. Monsters that flee into the wilderness while carrying an artifact can be found roaming the wilderness.

The Amulet of resurrection was made available on a resurrection day. Pickpocketing artifacts was made impossible. Thunderstroke and True Aim were given the ability to return, and Silver key was given the ability to create trapped doors. Various means of modifying and destroying artifacts were prevented.

Several types of artifacts can be equipped by your character (just click on the Inventory button next to their portrait on the lower-left corner of your screen). These include crowns, weapons, armors, regalia (i.e., scepters), and four slots for trinkets/accessories.
As mentioned earlier, Crusader Kings III: Royal Court has a few artifacts that already belong to a nation when you begin a campaign. These tend to have certain requirements to gain the full benefits, such as having a particular religion or culture. Here are some examples of illustrious artifacts found in the 1066 A.D. start date:
The Tucson artifacts, sometimes called the Tucson Lead Crosses, Tucson Crosses, Silverbell Road artifacts, or Silverbell artifacts, were thirty-one lead objects that Charles E. Manier and his family found in 1924 near Picture Rocks, Arizona, that were initially thought by some to be created by early Mediterranean civilizations that had crossed the Atlantic in the first century, but were later determined to be a hoax.
The find consisted of thirty-one lead objects, including crosses, swords, and religious/ceremonial paraphernalia, most of which bore Hebrew or Latin engraved inscriptions, pictures of temples, leaders' portraits, angels, and a dinosaur (inscribed on the lead blade of a sword). One contained the phrase "Calalus, the unknown land", which was used by believers as the name of the settlement. The objects also have Roman numerals ranging from 790 to 900 inscribed on them, which were sometimes interpreted to represent the date of their creation. The site contains no other artifacts, no pottery sherds, no broken glass, no human or animal remains, and no sign of hearths or housing.
The first object removed from the caliche by Manier was a crudely cast metal cross that weighed 62 pounds (28 kg); after cleaning it was revealed to be two separate crosses riveted together. After his find, Manier took the cross to Professor Frank H. Fowler, Head of the Department of Classical Languages of the University of Arizona, at Tucson, who determined the language on the artifacts was Latin. He also translated one line as reading "Calalus, the unknown land", giving a name for the supposed Latin colony.
The Latin inscriptions on the alleged artifacts supposedly record the conflicts of the leaders of Calalus against a barbarian enemy known as the "Toltezus", which some have interpreted as a supposed reference to the Mesoamerican Toltec civilization. However, the Latin on the artifacts appears to either be badly inflected original Latin, or inscriptions brazenly plagiarized from Classical authors such as Virgil, Cicero, Livy, Cornelius Nepos, and Horace, among several others. This has led many experts to condemn the artifacts as frauds. What is perhaps most suspicious, however, is that most of the inscriptions are identical to what appeared in widely available Latin grammar books, like Harkness's Latin Grammar and Allen and Greenough's Latin Grammar, as well as dictionaries like The Standard Dictionary of Facts.
H. P. Lovecraft alludes to the Tucson artifacts in "The Mound," a short story ghost-written for Zealia Bishop. Archaeologist and Lovecraft scholar Marc A. Beherec argues that the items influenced some of Lovecraft's other writings.
The Tucson artifacts were featured on The History Channel show America Unearthed in the episode titled "The Desert Cross," on February 22, 2013. This episode was criticised for its methodology, its ignorance (or deliberate omission) of the complete text on the crosses, and its conclusions.
A legendary artifact that has all four substats revealed at upgrade level 0 will therefore receive four boosts to its substats at random at upgrade levels 4, 8, 12, and 16, which is why legendary artifacts have the potential to be the best.
*Stone Skin and Protection give bonuses no matter how many artifacts of the set you wear. The more artifacts of the set you wear, the more bonuses you get. Wearing 1 Stone Skin artifact gives +15% DEF, for example, while wearing all 6 Stone Skin Artifacts gives all the bonuses listed above.
At the beginning of the game, you might, for example, want to settle for the Life set with artifacts with great stats rather than trying to farm Immortal artifacts with the right stats, as they are much harder to obtain.
You can get artifacts in the game by completing stages in the Campaign, completing stages in certain Dungeons, purchasing them in the Shop, opening Arena and Clan Boss chests, participating in events, and crafting them at the Forge.
Select the artifact you wish to sell and click the Sell button in the top right of the artifacts inventory window, and then click the orange Sell button that appears in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Artifacts are unique and powerful items which grant their owners special abilities. Many of these items have been seen in other games in the franchise. In the context of Elder Scrolls Online, artifacts are seen occasionally during quests or can be temporarily obtained in PvP. The visual style of several artifacts can also be applied to your weapons via the Outfit System. Some weapon and apparel artifacts are seen and can theoretically be used by players, but are unavailable to be obtained.
