When you receive an artifact after defeating a Boss or completing a domain, you must level them up to get better sub-stats. It would be best to use artifacts of higher rarity on your characters so they can do the most damage or support you in combat.

One other way players can level up an artifact is by using the Artifact Enhancement Materials. They are available in two rarities, Sanctifying Essence and Sanctifying Unction, which can be found by doing quests, events, and are also sold in the Serenitea Pot’s shop every week. Players can use these items to level up an artifact in Genshin Impact.

Max Artifact Levels

The maximum level for one-star and two-star artifacts is 4 in Genshin Impact. The max levels for three-star, four-star, and five-star artifacts are 12, 16, and 20, respectively. If you use an artifact that has been previously leveled up as an enhancement material, the new artifact will receive 80% of the XP materials of the previous artifact.

However, players are not recommended to use a 5-star artifact to level up another artifact unless they run out of enhancement materials.

Leveling up an artifact will also cost you a bit of Mora, but if you have three or four-star artifacts, they can be destroyed in exchange for Mora.
