Unique objects called relics were introduced into the game with today's patch. There are nine of them and they should create more struggles and wars on the Agon. Anyone can find it in the world and bring it personally without any ports or recalls to the church in his clan holding. All the members will then receive a clan wide global buff. Or he can be mean and bring it to a specific altar to receive an individual heroic buff.
Relics cannot be removed from the world, stored in a bank, bag etc. So all of this should provide more fights over them because every clan will have much better positions and will become more powerful.
There are 9 relics:
Relic of Warfare
Decreases Siege Ladder spawning time to 10 seconds, delays enemy city warning message by 20 seconds and grants +5 arcane protection
Relic of Greed
Halves Globules of Greed consumption and doubles requisitioning speed
Relic of Aegis
