Does crossing multiple sub-stat upgrade threshold at the same time force every bonus to be applied on the same sub-stat?



  • When upgrading artifact pieces in Genshin Impact it is possible with some luck/planning to increase the level of an artifact by more than 8 levels at a time. Every 4 levels an artifact gets a boost to a random sub-stat OR a new sub-stat if it currently has less than 4. This means that an artifact that is boosted at least 8 levels from a single upgrade should apply two sub-stat upgrades at the same time. This in turn brings us to a question...

    What happens when multiple sub-stat upgrades are applied at the same time? I think that new stats take precedence, but what about an artifact that already reached 4 sub-stats? The few times I saw this happening to players it looked like every increase was applied to the same stat instead that randomly for each upgrade as expected.

    Basically it looks like increasing a 4 sub stat artifact all the way to level 8 should roll for a sub stat upgrade twice separately, but when level 4 and level 8 are reached at the same time what really happens is that the system rolls ONCE for a single stat to upgrade and then twice for each upgrade to apply.

    Is this true? I doubt this can be abused anyway but it would still be a nice trivia to know.



  • That is a wrong assumption.

    I tested it with lvl 1 to 20 with 3 stats:

    artifact_level_1 artifact_level_1_to_20

    Upgrades of substats done(lvl 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 = 5 upgrades):

    • 2 upgrades: Elemental Mastery added + 1 Upgrade
    • 2 upgrades: Energy recharge
    • 1 upgrade: HP
    • ATK got 0 upgrades

    And with 4 stats:

    enter image description here

    Here, 4 different properties got upgraded and one didn't even recieve 1 upgrade as well.

    I also tested lvl 3 to 8 with a 3 stat artifact, it got a new property and a upgrade to an existing one.
