Elemental Relics and You - An Introduction

Elemental Relic Introduction

Elemental Relics are ancient artifacts imbued with primordial power, forged long ago to empower the armies of Light and Darkness. These relics have been untouched by mortal hands, but a journey into Ever Abyss may uncover some of their secrets.

Elemental Relics are a new type of gear introduced in the Forsaken World: Awakening expansion. When equipped, the relic will give characters a variety of passive bonuses to their statistics. There are many different types of relics, each focusing on a different statistic as its primary bonus. While it is possible to find Elemental Relics as rewards for high-level instances, players must complete a series of quests in Ever Abyss in order to unlock their true potential.

Elemental Relic Quest

Morin has been dispatched to Winter Heights to direct the campaign against the Storm Legion. Amidst the fighting, Lionheart troops came up a mysterious artifact that resonated with untold power. While Morin must stay at his post, perhaps some adventurers may be able to continue the search for the artifact’s origin.

Your journey to discover the powers of the artifact begins with the quest “War Trophy” in Winter Heights. The quests for the Elemental Relic run parallel to the quests for Awakening, meaning many of quest-contacts for Awakening will also be able to help empower your newfound relic.
(Note to players: Not every quest for Awakening has objectives for Elemental Relic, but many do share the same NPC-contacts. If you find yourself lacking progress for Elemental Relic quests, make sure you’ve made all previpous progress. Example: You will need to visit Rose Queen in Land of Origination for Awakening and Relic quests, but if you finish the Awakening quest first she will teleport you to a different map. You may need to return to Rose Queen to continue the quest for the relic.)

Once you have gathered the proper materials to bring the artifact back to its former luster, you will be given the choice between two basic Elemental Relics. A “Sharpness” relic will focus on increasing your offensive attributes, while a “Toughness Relic” will focus on increasing your defenses.




Along with a free Relic, you will also receive the ability to perform Elemental Relic Operations, which can now be found in your Basic Skill page. Elemental Relic Operations include
• Fusion – combine Relics to increase their Growth, and Upgrade their Level
• Promotion – Take a fully-upgraded relic and Evolve it into a higher-ranked relic
• Transfer – Use Relic Spirit items to transfer additional bonuses into your relic


Relic Fusion



Using Elemental Relic Operations, you can fuse relics together to increase the Growth of one relic at the cost of another. Place the relic you wish to grow into the magic circle, then place the relic you wish to sacrifice into the slow next to Relic Fusion button. The sacrificed relic will be destroyed to give its power to the fused relic in the form of Growth points. Growth points gained by the fused relic is dependent on the Growth, Level, and Quality of the relic that is sacrificed. Once Current Growth reaches or exceeds the Growth Required, the Current Level of the fused relic will increase, adding to the bonuses the relic grants a character. Once the relic’s level reaches 9, and the current growth is at its maximum, the relic can be promoted to a more powerful item.



Relic Promotion
Once a relic has reached its maximum level and growth, it can be promoted. A promoted relic will start back at Level 0, but the Elemental Relic Lv will increase by one. The bonuses may change their type, but all bonuses will be greater than the lower Lv relic.

When a relic is promoted from Lv1 to Lv2, it will become a stronger version of the same relic. When a relic is promoted from Lv2 to Lv3, there are two possibilities (of equal chance) to what type of relic will result. When a relic is promoted from Lv3 to Lv4, or Lv4 to Lv5, the possible outcomes are greater in number, and while the chance of receiving a specific relic type are random, there are ways to increase the odds in your favor.



There are two types of items sold by Heart of Miracle in Ever Abyss which can help with Relic Promotion.

Transfer items are used to increase the likelihood of a particular outcome from Relic Promotion, but only when promoting relics to Lv4 or Lv5 for the first time.

Subsidiary Transfer Items will increase the likelihood of a specific outcome from Relic Promotion, but will not guarantee it. The rarer Directional Transfer Item will guarantee the outcome to be a relic of a specific type. If you are building a specific relic, make sure to have a transfer-item to control the wild powers of the elemental relics.



Relic Transfer
When your relic has reached Lv4 or Lv5, it will have the capability to unlock Relic Spirits. Relic Spirits are items that can be slotted into an Elemental relic to further augment its capabilities. There are 5 types of slots, each type of slot can change a variety of specific statistics. The 5 types of Relic Spirits are: Line, Mark, Flare, Omin, and Sigil.



Each slot in your Elemental Relic corresponds to one of these types of Spirits. Sigil Spirits can be used in any type slot, while Sigil Slots will accept any type of spirit.

Spirits can be embedded into slots at any time for free, but removing a spirit from a relic will cost Gold.

Finally, when a relic reaches Lv5, it has achieved its peak power. You can reroll the types of slots it may have, but you cannot promote the relic any higher. All relics used as examples here are of Quality 1, but perhaps there are other relics with higher quality (and higher bonuses too!)

    I still don't understand how to combine. I must be missing something. A little help in the form of an explaination would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    drag your main relic into the square in the center of the window, then just right click a food relic in your bag and it will go into the slot on the right. just hit confirm and itll get used up.

    I did not get the quest to run the mainline for the relics so i have no way to upgrade. Is it a bug and will there be a fix to be able to still get it?

    Relic promotion increases the Quality, right? So, you level a quality 1 relic then evolve/promote it to quality 2, then repeat for 3, 4, and finally 5?

    Nah, promotion increases the relic level (pink text right above the stats).
    The quality (what you see at the bottom, dark purple text) doesn't change.

    So if you promote a Lv1 relic with quality Lv1 you'll get a Lv2 relic which still has quality lv1.
    The higher the quality is the higher the possible stats (since the base stats are higher).​​

    I lvled mine to lvl9, but i can't promote it (quality lvl2). I hit confirm, get a window to confirm again and than nothing happens and the relic remains as it is D: Basically i don't really care because i want to lvl up my 4quality relic, but it still is frustrating.

    That's what i did, but it doesn't work at all. I tried different times hoping it work after relog etc...nothing. Had various items bought and in my pocket, still nothing. I will write a ticket when my quality lvl4 relic is bugging like this one. It's only a temporary because i filled my inventory with relics 3 or 4 times before i got the lvl4 and thus threw them into this one (lvl3 were alle def ones), but still angry about it. Bugshaken world ftw :s
    I hope there will be a fix or change after the patch on tuesday, will report back than.

    Hey Domino, I heard from CN server that when your Relic hit relic rank 4+ and have the slot open, we suppose to have the item which you can use to id random number of slots from it (relic rank4 can get 3 slots max, relic rank5 can 7 slots max). And these items suppose to be available from NPC "Heart of Miracle" but I couldnt find it there, its missing a whole tab. So is that a bug? Or we aren't getting it till next patch?

    Happened to me, too, probable solution: Go one further than max growth, so if it's 343/343, combine once more for 353/343 or else, then you should be able to upgrade, you won't need any items.

    Hope it will work :)

    Even a Quality 1 Relic can have lot of slots... So how we can get more than the actually avaiable 2 Slots?

    So if i read this correctly, when promoting from rank 2 to rank 3 there's no way to control which of the two possible outcomes occur - it's only once you reach rank 4 that you can use the transfer items?

    That seems to be the case. I promoted from 2->3, and it said it could go either way (att or def) and gave no slots to put items in. Luckily it stayed on the path I wanted, otherwise I'd have been more than a little annoyed...
