Best Relic in Tower Of Fantasy and how to get it

The best Relic in Tower Of Fantasy is the Colossus Arm. Those hulking robotic arms are just too useful to ignore, bestowing hitstun immunity for the next 20 seconds, and augmenting your normal and skill attacks for the same duration. It's a powerful burst of extended DPS whenever you use it, and the ability to shrug off attacks that would otherwise hitstun you makes this SSR Relic an amazing tool in any player's toolkit.

Have a read up here on how to get the Colossus Arm early in Tower Of Fantasy.

How do Relics work in Tower Of Fantasy?

In Tower Of Fantasy, Relics are special gadgets and weapons that you can equip in either of your two Relic slots. Some Relics help you with exploration and traversal - the most obvious example is the Jetpack, which is the first Relic you unlock in the game. But most Relics are used exclusively for combat.

Relics are divided into two rarities: SR, and SSR. The rarer SSR Relics are where you'll often find the most powerful weapons, but there are also some extremely useful SR Relics in Tower Of Fantasy, so don't just assume that SSR Relics are better.

Once you have more than two Relics, you'll be able to use the Relics screen to switch which Relics you have equipped at any time. Certain dungeons and other areas may require you to have a certain Relic equipped in order to complete the puzzle elements in that area and progress to the end.


How to unlock new Relics

You unlock certain Relics as part of story missions in Tower Of Fantasy. The Jetpack is again an example, as it is an essential tool for exploration and traversal that is unlocked for you very early on in the main story.

Most other Relics are unlocked either by exploring Ruins or simply earning a certain number of Exploration points for certain regions of the world.

Here's how to unlock each of the Relics in Tower Of Fantasy:

How to upgrade Relics

All Relics in Tower Of Fantasy can also be upgraded over time using Relic shards, which you can farm from Ruins, bosses, and Claire's Dream Machine.

To upgrade a Relic, just head to the Relics screen, click on a Relic, and click on the Advancement button on the left. There you'll see how many shards and how much gold you'll need to upgrade it. With each advancement level, you'll unlock a new passive trait for that Relic.
