Experienced Genshin Impact players will know that the game runs on a tanking system. This means that the more enemies destroyed by the player, the more powerful that player’s attacks become in the moment. Likewise, the more damage the player takes, the more damage resistance they will gain in the moment. This doesn’t mean that the player’s overall health will not decrease, but that they will be able to cement their build the longer they fight.

Artifact sets enhance maximum damage, healing, abilities, and survivability. Players are required to use their limited Resin energy as the primary resource with which to farm Artifacts. Survival relies on a good balance between attack and defense. Many players focus on attack exclusively, and while Defense is important, there is a good reason for this. While there are tons of possible combinations, starting with a good base is key. Here’s everything players need to know about Defense in Genshin Impact.
