  • "Increases the rate at which you gain Artifact Power."

Artifact Knowledge is the name for a hidden currency and catchup mechanism for Artifact Weapons that adjusts the rate of Artifact Power gain. It does not begin to have any effect until level 110.

Details Edit

Based on an extensive comment by Voxxel in the Wowhead comments:[1]

  • 25 levels of Knowledge that you can research, each level adds a specific multiplier to your Artifact Power gains.
  • Start with Hitting the Books at level 110 in your Order Hall which begins the process of starting Artifact Knowledge Work Orders.
  • Each Work Order costs 500 Inv orderhall orderresources [Order Resources] and produces Artifact Research Notes.
    • The first work order for Artifact Research Notes takes 5 days to complete. The required time changes proportionally, based on how far the character is in the research progress and how much time passed since the launch of Legion-Logo-Small Legion. The exact numbers of this catch-up system are not known.
  • Using an increases your Artifact Knowledge (and level which increases Artifact Power gains)
    • With each used you advance in presentations from an Artifact lore book which tells more history of your Artifact Weapon.

Notes Edit

  • The bonus is NOT-RETROACTIVE, Artifact Power adding items you have already acquired will not change. You still receive the preceding Artifact Power values from items you acquired prior to learning the Artifact Research Notes.[1]
    • For the reason above, stockpiling Artifact Power items is absolutely pointless.[1]
  • The Artifact Knowledge / Artifact Power bonus is not account-wide, you have to progress it for every character individually.[1]
  • Power items so you'll see the increased amount of Artifact Power on them even before you obtain the items. Example:
