About Relics

Relics in Cult of the Lamb are special artifacts with various effects. Some relics are similar to Curses and inflict significant magic damage. Others enhance the player, increasing his damage, speed, or even size. There are relics that add orbs around the lamb, and some summon demons to assist in the remaining crusade battles. Relics are a pleasant bonus that will undoubtedly come in handy in many battles.

Obtaining relics is similar to getting tarot cards and weapons - you can find them as a reward after a room battle or purchase them from a merchant. Fragile relics can be used only once, while others can be used indefinitely, on cooldown.

In this guide, I will tell you how to find all 37 relics to get an achievement on Steam. Also presented is a brief overview of each relic, rank, and examples of use in practice.

Starting Relics

The first 13 relics will be unlocked after your first encounter with the mad owl named Chemach. For those who choose the Quick Start option, these relics are available from the very first crusade.

Starting Relics

Temple Relics

The Temple’s sermons upgrade tree, which increases the level of weapons and curses, also offers several enhancements for relics. They are located in the right branch.

The first relic upgrade, Eyes of the Lost Relics, unlocks 3 fragile relics. They add orbiting eyes around the Lamb, damaging or weakening enemies on contact.

The next two enhancements, Blessings of the Relics and Damnation of the Relics, unlock 5 relics of the corresponding type each.

In total, you unlock 13 relics in the Temple.

Traders Relics

In your search for the next 2 relics, you will be assisted by traders whom you frequently encounter on crusades.

Tarot Card dealer Clauneck gives the first clue upon entering his room:

Thus, you can pick up Clauneck's Shoe behind the Lighthouse in Pilgrim's Passage:

The second hint is given by the weaponsmith Kudaai:

Traders Relics

The great beastie mentioned by Kyday is the fish-ship in Smuggler's Sanctuary. Tickle it and take Kudaii's Fingernail.

Traders Relics

By the way, waiting for hints from merchants is not required: both relics are available in the specified locations immediately after unlocking the initial 13 relics.

Secret Relics

Beak of the Fowler is easily caught while fishing, as the chance of catching it is quite high.

To obtain the Transmogricon, you will need to kill some innocent critter during a crusade. Whether it's squirrels or birds, keep slaughtering, and sooner or later this relic will be yours.

If you decide to forego traditional funeral rites and instead send five of your followers to be butchered, you'll be rewarded with Warracka's Right Fist. This, of course, might raise a few eyebrows among your remaining followers, so it's best to engage in such activities discreetly.

If you can’t wait for someone to die a natural death, you can always take matters into your own hands. Just remember, it’s best to do this under the cover of night, to avoid shaking the faith in your holy essence.

Boss Relics

After you defeat all the bosses and thus complete the main plot of Cult of the Lamb, you will encounter a mystic seller named ???.

Boss Relics

All four dungeons become available for replay and you will face enhanced Bishops in each of them. By defeating each of them, you can accept them into your cult as followers.

The first thing these new followers will ask you to do is to visit their dungeons and find a certain item there. This item is located in a room marked with a question mark. As soon as you find it, a new boss relic will become available to you.

Boss Relics

This way, your arsenal will be augmented by 4 powerful boss relics.

Mother's Relics

Acquiring the last two relics requires completing the following chain of actions:

  • Trade God Tears for the Amulet of Light and the Amulet of Darkness with ??? Mystic Seller. He is available after completing the main plot of the game.
  • Choose two useless followers (you will lose them forever) and give them these two amulets.
  • Perform sacrifice rituals and sacrifice them. As a result, you will get two new followers: Baal and Aym. You have already met them in the final battle with the main boss.
  • Turn both into demons using the summoning circle and go on a crusade with them.
  • Find a room with a cat merchant on the dungeon map and enter it.

That's it! Wait for the end of the monologue and receive a relic for each son of Forneus. In addition, you will receive the Mother’s Love achievement!
