General Information Edit Relics are Items that can be picked up from pedestals at the end of a zone or dungeon/crypt. They can be dropped by enemies, obtained by using statues, and they can be obtained by opening Chests. All kinds of Chests can hold a Relic, however the Crystal Chest has the highest chance of dropping one. It's uncommon for a Golden Chest to drop a Relic, and the normal Chest rarely ever drops one. You can hold an unlimited amount of Relics, but you can only hold one Active Relic. After you die, finish the difficulty level, or restart a run, you will lose all Relics you gained.
With Patch v18.104.22.168 the relic system has been re-worked. Obtaining all relics in game is no longer possible. Now, your chances of obtaining a new relic decrease with each relic you possess. Due to
this system, the singular relics are now much more powerful than before, granting more stats and damage. The rules are as follows:
The chance for your first relic is 70% and decreases with every relic you pick up. This means that you are technically unable to find more than 20 relics. However, you can still buy relics in Treasure Fort
Shopkeeper raises his price with each relic you have obtained.
(Shopprice = 1.000gold+(n*500gold)) // n=relics picked since start
This is in order to make every run unique and as the word "RELIC" states, those need to be more exclusive.
Relic buffs also scale with difficulty where they dropped. Numbers in the overview are for Normal difficulty. Numbers in brackets are for highest difficulty Agony.
Few relics scale with difficulty and stage e.g. Holy Grail´s smite damage, Razer Blade's bonus stats and other.
