All Relics in Nordic Ashes: Survivor of Ragnarok

There are two main types of relics you can find while you play: Ancient Relics and Relics. They are found and used in different ways, but both serve the same purpose — to provide bonuses and abilities that make it easier to survive. These are all of them you’ll find:

Ancient Relics

Ancient Relics are specific to each character in the game and are only usable by that character. They are unlocked via the Constellation menu as you level up during the round.

Which relics are active is based on what you choose to spend your points on as you level up. Some are passive abilities, some increase the character’s stats, and some act as weapons during the round. Here’s a look at what they all do for each character:

These relics are on pedestals that you can claim by running into them. However, some of them have specific requirements to unlock them first. Unlike Ancient Relics, they usually only last for a short time, so you’ll want to use them wisely.
