Relics in Evony are an important part of the game to attain powerful items and Generals. Indeed, you can also get some great resources and Gems from them. Read this Evony Relic Guide for all you need to know.
This Evony Relic Guide will cover all aspects of Relics. This includes the different levels of Relics, how to improve your exploring speed of Relics, and what items you can get from the Relic Chambers.
What is an Evony Relic
An Evony Relic is a location found on the World Map in which you can send troops to go and explore. Doing this will reward you with items depending on how long you spend exploring.
Evony Relic exploration will also reward you with Brick Hammers and Slate Fragments. These are used to enter the Relic Chamber which has even more great rewards. This is where you can get new Evony Generals and Tributes.
How to Find Evony Relics
Evony Relics can be found in 3 ways. Either you can locate one randomly on the World Map, go to an ally members relic, or you can use Treasure Maps to spawn one for yourself. Keep reading below in this Evony Relic Guide for details on each of these methods.
World Map Evony Relics
This involves simply searching the World Map for a random Relic and sending your troops to it to explore. However, you should try to avoid this method as it contains some risks.
It is often the case that this Relic will belong to another Alliance who will not be happy if you send troops there. They may attack you in retaliation. Additionally, it is not always clear if there are troops in the Relic or not which could be an expensive mistake.
Alliance Evony Relics
These are Relics that have already been opened by your Alliance members. You can easily find these relics by selecting the ··· icon and then clicking on the Relic option.
This will take you to a screen called Exploration Logs. Here, you will find a full list of all the Relics that are currently active within your alliance. Clicking on the Go button will take you directly to it and you can send your troops to explore.
Any number of alliance members can explore the same relic. Indeed, this will help to clear the relic faster.
Evony Relic Treasure Maps
To open a personal Evony Relic you must have Treasure Maps. These come in 6 levels with the greater the level, the greater the rewards that can be found in the spawned relic. The Relic Treasure Map levels are outlined below:
- Level 1 – Common Treasure Map
- Level 2 – Uncommon Treasure Map
- Level 3 – Rare Treasure Map
- Level 4 – Legendary Treasure Map
- Level 5 – Epic Treasure Map
- Mysterious Relic – Magic Treasure Map
Evony Treasure Maps can be found by killing Boss Monsters.
If you have a large amount of lower-level Treasure Maps, you can compose them by combining 3 pages to create a new Treasure Map of the next level up. It is a good idea to compose them all into Magic Treasure Maps.
Each player can only have one Relic open at a time. You must also activate the Relic by sending troops to it before alliance members can also send troops to explore.
Exploring an Evony Relic
To explore a relic you must simply select it on the World Map and click on the Explore Icon. Here you will be brought to a screen similar to when you are gathering. Select the troops you want to explore and send them on their way.
The length of time you can spend exploring is determined by Troop Load Capacity. The greater this is, the longer you can spend exploring. This can be improved by sending a General with a Troop Load skill book applied.
The stats of a General make no difference to how fast or long a march can spend exploring a relic. The only factors that can change these are improved troop load research, equipment with troop load buffs or refines, and troop load skill books.
Evony Relic Exploration Points
When a Relic first spawns, it contains a finite number of Exploration Points. The number of Exploration Points remaining decreases as the Relic is explored. Once this number gets to zero, the Relic will disappear.
In addition to this, each relic will only be active for a certain time before disappearing and you must also meet minimum keep requirements in order to explore them. Full details of this can be seen in the table below.
It should also be noted that higher-level relics are explored quicker by your troops. It is always therefore a good idea to target higher-level relics over lower-level relics.

Evony Relic Exploration Rewards
Evony Relic Exploration gives a massive variety of rewards. This is a great way to pick up items of all sorts along with resources and gems. The rewards gained are random, however, you will get more the longer the time you spent exploring. Rewards include:
- Monarch EXP
- Treasure Boxes
- Truce Agreements
