Additionally, many of them contain parts of the Lore. In the current game there is 26 relics to be found, with aureylian depth only having 2 unique relics.

List of relics[]

Atlantic Waters[]

A degraded statue of a fish-like humanoid. Its posture and expression seem to denote a heroic societal role, such as that of a warrior.

AtlanteanKingStatueRelic.png King Statue

AtlanticDecapodianBust.png Seaweed Sculpture

A sculpture fashioned out of Seaweed and makeshift rope, which appears to depict the top half of a humanoid Decapod. Crude at best, but it would fetch a high price at an art gallery.

A strange humanoid skull with large protruding tusks and walrus-like features is partially embalmed in ancient ice.

FeejeeMermaidRelic.png Petrified Mermaid

The petrified remains of what appears to be some kind of Mermaid-like female/fish hybrid. Legends say Mermaids would seduce sailors with their sultry wiles and bosom; Looking at this thing, it's clear the legends must be entirely hogwash. Oddly enough, its teeth smell of Fiji cuisine.
