Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion has been released so it’s time to start looking at all the new content coming very soon. One of the massive additions to the overall structure is the Seasonal Artifact.
Unlocked at Level 7 in your Season Pass, this artifact will not only provide a ton of new perks and benefits but it will also infinitely raise your Light level.
Acting as an additional power buff, this Artifact can raise you almost beyond the 960 gear cap and allows you to reach upwards of Light 1,000+. This feature makes it an invaluable asset, especially for those partaking in Destiny 2’s hardest activities.
To level up your Seasonal Artifact all you need to do is play the game as much as you can. Just like your Season Pass, the Seasonal Artifact is tied directly to earning experience. The more you earn, the higher your Artifact’s level will rise.
Because of this, we would suggest utilizing bounties, Patrols, and Public Events when you first start playing.
Additionally, considering using a Ghost with the Guiding Light perk, as this increases all your XP gains by 10%. Remember, you will always need to earn more experience for each subsequent level, so do not expect all this to be an easy grind.
As for the different mods, they are tied to energy just like your armor pieces are. This Seasonal Artifact boasts a total of 25 mods and you can only equip one in each column at a time.
There is no penalty as such for swapping them around or trying out new combinations. You can experiment and try out new builds, especially if you are trying to tackle endgame content such as Nightfalls or raids.
Remember, you need to reach Level 7 first on the Season Pass before this artifact will be available. Your artifact, along with the power boost, will disappear when the Season of the Undying concludes.
