    Simply useful and great, just the new artifacts have been putting it off a little bit so I ranked it down a notchRarity: LegendaryBest Heroes
  • Violas BowABest Heroes
    Great overall and if it would give attack instead of HP I would be happy to rank it higherRarity: LegendaryBest Heroes
  • Spiritbone TorcB+Best Heroes
    For any infantry that does counterattack this is a very strong and helful artifact but I don't want to rank it too crazy at this pointRarity: LegendaryBest Heroes
  • GoldcrestB+Best Heroes
    Perfect for Ffraegar and when used with her out of this world - but not universally greatRarity: LegendaryBest Heroes
  • Guardians Runic LongswordB+Best Heroes
    Straightforward cavalry damage artifactRarity: EpicBest Heroes
  • Dagger of BetrayalB+Best Heroes
    Solid universal artifact but can be super strong when dispelling debuffs is important or pretty much useless. More useful against the newer hero combinationsRarity: EpicBest Heroes
  • Lakeside RhapsodyB+Best Heroes
    Very fun artifact but also hard to get in the forge or when you can there are better ones available to youRarity: EpicBest Heroes
  • Steel-Heart AvengerB+Best Heroes
    Nice long-range marksman artifact with good stats and damage but honestly at the point you get access to this in the forge you have better artifacts available alreadyRarity: EpicBest Heroes

    Fine for attacking infantry setups but honestly when you have access to this at the forge you normally have better artifacts alreadyRarity: EpicBest Heroes
  • HeartpiercerB+Best Heroes
    Really amazing for what it is and the best epic marksman artifact in Call of Dragons - but the legendaries are simply too good to rank this higher but still very valuable and worth to maxRarity: EpicBest Heroes
  • Sorlands BladeBBest Heroes
    The stats are there and although I don't like the radius of the skill too much, it works. The issue here is there are so many crazy better options for cavalry available that I simply can't rank this higher.Rarity: LegendaryBest Heroes

    for garrison captain and defending city great, but nothing else really usefulRarity: LegendaryBest Heroes

    Pretty cool on main def infantry tank legions but realisitically needs more stats and legendary to be good. I still think you should have it as backup readyRarity: EpicBest Heroes

    when you use the skill right to get the value it can really shineRarity: EpicBest Heroes

    pretty solid infantry artifact with good radius and statsRarity: EpicBest Heroes
