Northgard Relics

Overview[ | ]

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 Smiths to a Forge.

  • A relic cost Kröwns 100, Wood 50 and Iron 10 and takes 8 months to be forged with two regular smiths. Once built, it needs to be placed in 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, by activating the Lore "Ancestral Influence".
  • Allies cannot build the same relic. It is not possible to use another player's relic, even if you colonize a zone containing a relic that your clan could build.
  • While some relics are common and can be built by any clan, others can only be built by one specific clan.
  • A relic cannot be removed or destroyed once built. The same goes to a relic in an area that has been colonized.
