Divinity Original Sin 2: Eternal Artefacts Guide (How to Find)

This guide explains what the Eternal Artefacts do, why they’re so valuable and where they can be found.

 

WHAT ARE ETERNAL ARTEFACTS

Eternal Artefacts are unique and rare objects used for crafting The Armor Of The Eternals, but more importantly they’re used for enchanting your equipment with specific stat bonuses. There are only 13 of them total in the entire game and can only be found at specific locations, which is what makes them so valuable to have.

ETERNAL ARTEFACT – ARMOR

There are a total of 8 Eternal Artefacts which enchant armor pieces and provide the following bonuses when combined with specific slots:

  • HELMET – 2 Finesse & 1 Huntsman
  • CHEST – 10% Air Resistance
  • GLOVES – 2 Constitution & 10% Earth Resistance
  • BELT – 2 Strength & 1 Warfare
  • LEGGINGS – 1 Polymorph & 10% Air Resistance
  • BOOTS – 1 Thievery & 0.1 Movement
  • NECKLACE – 10% Fire Resistance, 2% Critical Chance & 5% Dodge
  • RING – 10% Poison Resistance & 1 Scoundrel

*Be aware that some specific unique items cannot be enchanted*

If you wish to craft The Armor Of The Eternals, it is better to not waste Eternal Artefacts and instead use a Phase Capacitor, which can be found in large quantities on the Nameless Isle in ACT III.

ETERNAL ARTEFACT – WEAPON

There are a total of 5 Eternal Artefacts which enchant weapons, with the exception of staves and wands, and provide the following bonus:

  • WEAPON – 25% Air damage & 15% chance to set Shocked for 1 turn

*Be aware that some specific unique items cannot be enchanted*

ANCIENT ARTEFACT

Ancient Artefacts despite having the same icon, model and description as the Eternal Artefacts, do not have any purpose and cannot be used for anything. There are only two in the entire game and can be sold freely.

PSA – STACKING WEAPON ENCHANTMENTS

In case you weren’t aware, every physical weapon can be enchanted with poison, fire and air damage simultaneously.

  • Ooze Barrel + Weapon – Poison damage & 10% chance to set Poisoned status
  • Fire Source (Oven, Campfire, Stove, etc…) combined with an Oil Barrel + Weapon – Fire damage & 20% chance to set Burning status
  • Eternal Artefact + Weapon – Air Damage & 15% chance to set Shocked status
  • Torturer talent goes perfectly with both fire and poison

*The last enchantment applied will always override the previous one, however you will not lose the status effects on the weapon*

Here’s an example of my “VOOR D’LAMAS” two-handed mace fully enchanted:
