An Artifact is an item which can be attached to one of the Slots in Clothing and provide a bonus. The purpose of clothing is to hold artifacts.

Each artifact and each item of clothing have an number of Proficiencies that they are associated with. If there is a proficiency-match between an artifact and clothing, then it will be easier (lower chance of failure) to attach the artifact to that slot.

Clothing and Artifacts also have Difficulty ratings, listed as a high and low number. When there is a proficiency match, the low number is used. If there is no match, the larger number is used. The difficulty rating of the Artifact and the Clothing are then added together to provide the Total Difficulty of that particular slotting.

  • More powerful artifacts tend to have higher difficulties.
  • More valuable clothing has lower difficulties, and more slots.
