About John Bedford

Our Artifact Gold guide explains how to get more Gold in the game, and how you can spend it to get a strategic advantage.

Gold is a vital resource in Artifact, and accumulating it in sufficient quantities will allow you to make potentially game-changing purchases during the buy phase that occurs at the end of each round.

For the uninitiated, gameplay in Artifact takes place across three boards which represent the top, middle and bottom lanes of a game of Dota 2. Once play on the third board has concluded, players get to buy special items from the shop before play cycles back to the "top lane" once more.

In this guide we've outlined everything you need to know about Gold in Artifact, from obtaining it to what you can spend your ill-gotten gains on. Expect many updates to this article once the game enters beta, which is expected to begin at some point in October.

How to get Gold in Artifact

There are two methods for generating Gold in Artifact

  • Killing Heroes - Killing an opponent's hero will rewards you with a total of 5 Gold
  • Killing Creatures - Each time you kill an opponent's creature, you'll receive 1 Gold.
