Northgard Relics.png

Overview[edit | edit source]

Relics are a special type of building and the central element of the second post-release major update. They allow players to benefit from special abilities or bonuses but need to be forged first by assigning Smith.png Smiths to a Forge.

  • A relic cost Kröwns.png 100, Wood.png 50 and Iron.png 10 and takes less than 9 months to be forged with two regular smiths. Once built it needs to be placed an area like a regular building.
  • It is not possible to build more than one relic per game. Only Svadilfari Horse clan can build a second one upon reaching Fame.png 500 .
  • Allies cannot build the same relic. It is not possible to steal another player's relic.

While some relics are common and can be built by any clan, others can only be built by one specific clan.
