Bold Artifacts are special items that your hero may come across while questing. Your hero will not find these types of artifacts very often as they are quite rare, but as such, they fetch a higher price then normal artifacts at the merchant.

How to recognise
The names of these artifacts appear Bold.
How to use

It is worth noting that a few Bold Artifacts have special uses...
