Relics are equippable items that provide various bonuses, similar to Ancients. The bonuses of the relic will be added whether or not the related Ancients have been summoned. Relics can be generated randomly from zone 99 and onward, but only as the first monster of the zone, will only appear once per Ascension, and then only after your first Ascension (your first time playing through zone 99, you will not find any relics until you have ascended at least once). The strength of a Relic's powers vary based on its level.
Relic Ooze have a chance to spawn starting from zone 99, up to 2/3rd of the Highest Zone Ever reached (a player's HZE can be found in the "Stats" tab).
Min Relic Zone: max(starting zone, 99)
Exception to the formula: if (ceiling(HZE*.66) - start_zone <= ceiling(HZE*.66*.3)
Then use the following formula:
Max Relic Zone: starting_zone + ceiling(HZE*.66*.3)
Min relic Zone: max(starting zone, 99)
Relics will never spawn on a primal level. For example, if HZE is 1000 and SZ(starting Zone) is 100, a Relic Ooze can spawn anywhere between zone 101 and 659.
You are allowed to keep up to four Relics with you through Ascension. Once you have four Relics, any new Relic obtained will end up in the Junk Pile. On the Relics tab, you may decide which Relics (if any) you wish to keep while salvaging all others in the Junk Pile. This isn't mandatory until once you ascend. Also, relics don't have any effect when in the Junk Pile. The act of salvaging a Relic earns you a certain amount of Forge Cores (5 per level of the Relic salvaged, modified by rarity: Uncommon ×1.5, Rare ×2, Epic ×2.5, Fabled ×3, Mythical ×3.5, Legendary ×4.4 and Transcendent x5.2).
Each effect adds a level when upgrading a relic. So if the value of 5 × rarity modifer × number of effects is more than the upgrade cost, you will gain cores by upgrading before you salvage. To decide if an upgrade is worth it before salvaging, use the following table:
|Rarity||1 effect||2 effects||3 effects||4 effects|
Relic levels are calculated depending on the zone level in which the Relic Ooze spawns. The higher the zone level, the higher the Relic level will be. A Relic obtained at zone 1500 will always have a higher level than a Relic at zone 1400. The levels of the relics from a mercenary quest are calculated depending on your Highest Zone that Transcension, and they will be the highest possible according to that zone. Formula: TBD, but scientists believe it is Relic Level = Zone/27.
Relics have no maximum level.
Currently, a Relic's rarity does not affect the kind of stats it provides, or the strength of its stats. The only notable difference is that rarer relics can be scrapped for far more Forge Cores than relics with lower rarity. A relic's rarity is indicated by the background color, and text above the relic's level indicating its rarity. Currently, there are 8 levels of relics, with Common being the most easily found, and Transcendent being the most rare.
Currently, the suffix of a Relic seems to be random. The stats scale with the zone level in which you receive your Relic. A level 50 Relic would have higher statistics on it as compared to a level 40 Relic. The first stat/suffix will always correspond to the Relic class from which it is based.
Every Relic has its own unique class (eg: Death, Freedom, Agitation, etc) and the first prefix will always correspond to the Ancient to which it refers.
As an example, a Death class Relic will always give the stat "+% to Hero Soul DPS(additive)" in the same way the Ancient Morgulis gives +11% Hero Souls DPS per HS(additive). Note: After Patch 0.25b was released, Relic stats no longer show what they increase and by how much, but instead add on levels to the corresponding Ancient that matches the trait. For example, a Relic that previously added +4% chance of Primal Bosses will now add four levels to Atman instead. However, this will not affect the stats the relics provides, but merely make each relic an add-on to Ancients, giving them extra levels, instead of providing the same boosts themselves. Any relics acquired before the patch will remain the exact same, just provide levels to each ancient that match up with the stats that the relics provide. This can be passed off as simply a visual change; however, it may have some effects on leveling up the ancients.

Currently, Forge Cores are used to upgrade your relics in the newest version (now works on Android by long pressing on a relic). You can get Forge Cores by salvaging Relics. The amount of Forge Cores you receive depends on the level and rarity of the Relic(s) salvaged.
Before salvaging, always check if the cost of upgrading junk relics is less than the amount their value increases when upgraded. Most relics can be upgraded at least once or twice before salvaging to produce a net gain of forge cores.

- Relics do not appear to save onto cloud saves. (Steam and web version)
- Relics do not transfer to the steam section.
- Having too many relics in your junk pile when scrapping may result in Relics being left over.
