How to select which relics to retain vs to salvage in the junk pile



  • I'm a little confused about what I should or should not retain in the way of relics. Does anyone have a rule of thumb for this?

    I'm forced to decide so as to allow me to ascend. This is a bit odd because each world has one relic, so every ascension you can have 4 saved relics and 1 in the junk pile at most. It is not really a pile. I don't know why the interface's box is so large.

    To illustrate with my specific case I have (direct transcription sorry for the obvious text and lack of abbreviations):

    1. Ranger Gloves of Diseases Rare Level 23

      • -3% Boss Life
      • +0.5% Chance of 10x Gold
      • +2% Chance of Primal Bosses
    2. Copper Mark of Wrath Common Level 34

      • +140% Click Damage
      • +249% Gold gained from monsters when idle (no clicks for 60 seconds)
      • +3% Chance of double rubies from clickable treasures, when you get a ruby.
    3. Copper Band of Souls Common Level 26

      • +3% Chance of Primal Bosses
      • +4 seconds to duration of Lucky Strikes
    4. Ranger Gloves of Greed Uncommon Level 35

      • +175% Gold Dropped
    5. Rusty Sword of Battery Life Common Level 22

      • +17 seconds to duration of Metal Detector
      • +2 to starting zone after Ascension
      • +50% Gold gained from monsters when idle (no clicks for 60 seconds)
      • +1 seconds to duration of Clickstorm

    Going on rarity I might get rid of the lowest level common item (#5) or going on level I might get rid of the lowest level item (also #5). However I am and idle style player and I am not sure I want to give up the +50% Gold when idle compared to giving up say (#1) the -3% Boss Life, +0.5% Chance of 10x Gold, +2% Chance of Primal Bosses. I mean I like primal bosses having a better chance, and the 10x gold thing is awesome when it happens to a treasure chest... but really, over all +50% gold might progress faster & further? It's hard for me to say.



  • This may be a bit subjective due to play style; but all 4 of my relics either have the % Chance of Primal Bosses or & Primal Souls.

    Also keep in mind that these bonuses are all additive.

    Per the relics wiki page; they've broken it down into tiers (although this is also probably subjective as well).

    Top tier is + % Chance of Primal Bosses

    Middle tier consists of:

    - % Hero Hiring and Level-Up cost
    + % chance of double rubies
    + Duration (lucky strikes being best)
    + % Primal Hero Souls
    + % 10x gold
