Genshin Impact is known for its stylish characters and vast map, and with all the new playable characters being added lately, many players are in need of equipment. Whether it’s training characters with weapons, artefact sets, or even just EXP materials, it takes effort to level up a new player.

Although the next character set to join the Genshin Impact playable roster is Ganyu, the five-star Cryo Archer, players have recently had the opportunity to meet three distinct Geo characters: Ningguang, Zhongli, and Albedo (in order of appearance). Especially now that these three characters have joined the fray, players may want to find some powerful Geo-boosting items, such as Artifact Sets.

Like other powerful Artifact Sets in Genshin Impact, Archaic Petra can be earned as a Domain reward. Several powerful artefact sets, such as the Wanderer’s Troupe, can be obtained from Elite Bosses, but specialised ones, such as Archaic Petra and Crimson Witch of the Flame, are generally reserved for special domains. Archaic Petra will only drop as a reward from the Guyun Domain in Liyue, located on the largest island in the Guyun Stone Forest. The small archipelago is also where players can find and challenge the powerful Geo Hypostasis Elite Boss.

The Archaic Petra is a four-star Artifact Set at its lowest level, so it will only drop as a reward starting at Level III of the Domain of Guyun. When equipped with a set of two, Archaic Petra gives characters like the controversial Zhongli a raw Geo DMG boost, but its true power lies in the four-piece bonus. Somehow, most Geo characters rely on their ability to trigger Crystal reactions and produce Elemental Shards. These shards allow teammates to generate different kinds of Elemental Shields, and the Archaic Petra Set effectively gives players an additional 35 per cent damage boost in addition to shields.

Genshin Impact is available now on the App Store, Google Play, PC, PS4, PS5.
