Artifacts can be purchased and upgraded from the third tab, labeled by the same symbol used for the Relic currency and colored amber. Artifacts are power-ups that boost various aspects of gameplay, such as tap damage, damage-per-second (DPS), or gold earnings; however, all Artifacts will increase your All Damage % in some amount (firstly in a larger base value, with every subsequent level being a lower amount). Artifacts are unlocked after Stage 80 and are purchased and upgraded with relics. Every time you buy a new artifact, you receive a random one. However, you can salvage artifacts for a full refund but at a cost of diamonds, with more diamonds being required to salvage a later artifact the more artifacts you own.
Cost of Acquiring Artifact Slots
Each subsequent artifact that you acquire beyond the first will cost more relics. The more artifacts you wish to equip, the more relics you will need to spend. It would be a good idea to salvage an artifact that you do no want so that the cost to acquire new artifacts is less.
World 1 Artifact Cost
The Artifact called "Brew of Absorption" was removed from Tap Titans for a while due to its massive increase in DPS (While Playing), as of the 4.0.0 Update, it was been returned to rotation, altered to be functional, but not as over-powered, and is once again obtainable as one of the 30 Artifacts.
