During the battle, the 3 Watch Towers will randomly spawn various special relics.
Relics are produced every 3 minutes at each of the watch towers. Players can acquire the relic by clicking on it on the watch tower. Each relic will have an effect on the player carrying it. Once a player acquires a Relic, it is advised that the Nation's Citizen protect him as he will need to carry it and place the Relic into the Altar of Blocks to score points.
This Altar of Blocks can be found at the Skadi's Eye area. There are 6 Altars in total and players may select either one to place the relic inside. Altar that has just been placed a relic cannot be place another for the next 5mins. There will be a "Forbidden Altar light" shown.
