We first got info on Relic Wars in early December but nothing really new until recently. Shadow Souls has seen some changes to the Relic Wars graphics and prizes. Here are the most recent prizes and stats but details could change before final release. The Relic Wars Beta prizes have no effect, this is to show what they will do in the real release.
Here’s the main page you get when clicking Relic Wars. The top prize is now called Crown of Estara changed from Crown of the Forgotten King and it’s impressive. Notice they doubled the wall damage from 10% to 20% and changed the Spell Tower damage reduction to reduction from all magic.
If your kingdom wins Crown of the Estara everyone gets 20% more damage vs walls, troops heal 20% when stronghold is destroyed, gain an additional mana for every spell tower taken down, gain 5% increased health and damage, and take 5% less damage magic. Woah :)
The 2nd tier prize is similar to the first but does not get the 20% wall damage or 20% heal from killing the stronghold. Both Mindflayer’s Wand and Staff of the Wanderer have the same specs.
Tier 3 is The Bloodseeker, Hailstone Claymore, and Dragon Blade changed from Green Dragon Crescent Blade. It’s similar to tier 2 but lacks the extra mana from spell tower.
Tier 4 offers Aegis’ Tower Shield, Ephraim’s Buckler, Mithril Shield, and Estara’s Bulwark, all have new images. They match tier 3 except loose 5% damage bonus.
Tier 5 is Kwans Tome, Serra’s Spellbook, Erasmus’ Grimoire, Moloch’s Necronomicon, and Anir’s Lexicon, all have new images. Tier 5 has only the 5% less magic damage taken.
If you win you get a nice trophy to display on your base, but it’s only yours until your team looses. You are automatically in the next Relic War to defend your title. Relic Wars and normal Kingdoms Raids are independent so you can be in both.
