  • Choose from six different Relics to Rally for:

- Aegis' Tower Shield, Mindflayer’s Wand, Staff of the Wanderer, Kwan’s Tome, Moloch’s Necronomicon, and Anir’s Lexicon,
- Have a King or Lord enroll your Kingdom to Rally for the Relic.

How to Play

  • In Relic Wars, each Ancient can only be used once per Battle, whether you win or lose!
  • Use your Ancients wisely and earn points in Relic League by defeating enemy Kingdom members!
  • Winning Relic league will earn you the right to hold the Relic throughout the next Relic League (7 Days.)
  • At the end of the Relic League each Kingdom will earn a percentage (3-12%) of the Rings or Gold rallied by all participants. The higher your rank, the more currency you will earn.

- If a Kingdom successfully wins and defends a relic two weeks in row, they will win currency without having to Rally any further.


Prizes:

  • Winners will be shown as the Relics owners for 7 Days.
  • You will be able to place the Relic in your base, showing off your victory!
  • The better your rank, the more Rings or Gold from the Rally phase will be rewarded to you, between 3-12%.
  • Successfully holding a Relic consecutively will increase your Relic Streak which is displayed prominently in the Relic Menu.

Rally phase

Your Kingdom will need to bid either gold or rings (depending on what Relic you are going for) over a 24 hour period before the Relic War begins. If your Kingdom is unsuccessful in the bidding phase, all individual gold or rings donated will be returned to those who donated. Refunded currency will be put into your inventory.

All participating kingdoms will receive a percentage of the pot of donated gold or rings returned at the end of final War depending on their final position. If a kingdom wins a Relic war, and therefore skips the donation phase of the next war, they will still share a percentage of the contribution of the other 5 kingdoms (Refunded currency will be put into your inventory):

Final Position Percentage donation returned
1st 12%
2nd 10%
3rd 5%
4th 3%
5th 3%
6th 3%

War Phase

The top six Kingdoms bidding for each Relic enter Relic Wars a series of five battles with the other kingdoms over five days. Each War lasts for 23.5 hours, with a 30 minute cooldown. At the end of the five days, the winner takes a relic, and there is a 24 hour post war phase. After this the winning Kingdom will be automatically entered into the next War phase to defend their right to hold the relic.
