Relic – How to Gain More or Explore Faster (with Verification Report)

How to increase the speed of exploration, increase the amount gathered, and get more resources and items in a single exploration.

This is a summary of the results of various tests.

How to increase the amount gatherd per hour

There are only two ways.

1. Go to High-Level Relic
2. Research

1. Go to High-Level Relic

The higher level relics are, the faster you can explore them.

Therefore, it is basically better to go only to “Mysterious Relics”.

Example

  • Mysterious Relics – 390/5s per player
  • Lv5 Relics – 300/5s per player
  • Lv4 Relics – 270/5s per player

Note – Having many players in one relic will only shorten the time it takes to get through all of the relics, but will not increase the speed of exploration per player.

2. Research

The following research will give you a boost in the amount of relics gathered. (After gathering, a percentage of the amount gathered will be added to your total.)

  • Alliance > Mysterious Relic Exploration – Max +20%
  • Alliance > Adv Mysterious Relic Exploration – Max +20%

Relics Gathering Amount Boost Specifications

The boost will be applied to everything you gather (below).

  • Resources
  • Fragments
  • Hammers
  • Items other than the above
    • The “total number” of items increases. The number of each item of all types obtained does not increase equally. For example, with a +20% boost, “10 types x 1 item” may become “12 types x 1 item”, or 10 types may remain the same and any number of items may increase to a total of 12.

This can be seen by comparing the list of “Acquired Rewards” just before leaving the relics with the gathering report after leaving the relics.

The reports after gathering are of course boosted,

but the list of “Acquired Rewards” that can be seen in the list of relics is not boosted.

Generals, Skills, & Items have No Effect

No matter which general you use, the amount gathered per hour will remain the same.

The following also have no effect.

  • General Level
  • Skill
  • Troop Type, Troop Level
  • General’s Equipment
  • Monarch Gear
  • Items
  • Power
  • etc.

In other words, improving the following will not increase the amount gathered per hour.

  • Troop load
  • Resource Gathering Speed
  • Extra Resources from gathering (Amount Boost)

Examples of ineffectiveness

  • Troop load
    • Exploring with a general who has the troop load skill (such as Amir Timur or Attila etc.)
    • Equip the general with a troop load increase buff.
    • Explore with high-level siege machines (= high troop load).
  • Resource Gathering Speed
    • Explore with a general who has the Gathering Speed skill.
    • Explore with a general who has high politics.
    • Level up, Enhance, and Cultivate generals to increase their politics.
    • Equip Monarch Gear with a gathering speed crystal.
    • Use items that increase resource gathering speed.
    • Equip a general with a resource gathering speed boost buff.
  • Extra Resources from gathering (Amount Boost)
    • Explore with a general that has a resource gathering amount boost skill (such as Queen Jindeok or Constance I etc).
    • Equip a general with a resource gathering amount boost buff.
  • etc.

NOTE – Increasing the troop load does not increase the amount of items gathered per hour, but it does increase the limit amount of items that can be gathered, so the same troops (quantity, troop type, and level) can stay in the relics longer.
In other words, the same amount can be gathered with fewer troops (the gathering time remains the same).
Therefore, there is an advantage in these points.

Reference – Verification Results

I explored the relics for the same amount of time with two generals with very different abilities.

Basic setting

Account A 

  • General
    • Level 31 / Politics 1255 / Equipment – Champion Set 4 + Transcendent Set 2
    • Resource Gathering Speed + 180.50%.
    • Resource Gathering Amount Boost +10%
    • Troop Load +15%
  • Research
    • Mysterious Relic Exploration +5.5% to +20%

Account B

  • General
    • Level 14 / Politics 309 / No Equipment / Resource Gathering Speed skill available
    • Resource Gathering Speed + 45.90%
    • Resource Gathering Amount Boost +0%
    • Troop Load +0%
  • Research
    • Mysterious Relic Exploration +0

Test 1 – Basic survey

Explored the mysterious relic for 10 hours.

Research Difference

  • Account A – Mysterious Relic Exploration +5. 5%.
  • Account B – Mysterious Relic Exploration +0

Result 1-1) List of Acquired Rewards during Exploring (after 8 hours)

Account A / Account B

Account A subtotal
  • Resources – 2261.6K total
  • Fragments – 19
  • Hammers – 19
  • Other items – 19 total
Account B Subtotal
  • Resources – 2262.8K total
  • Fragments – 19
  • Hammers – 19
  • Other Items – 19 total

Subtotals for Account A and B are almost identical.
* The difference of a few seconds in the exploration time seems to have caused a slight error in the amount of resources.

Result 1-2) Result report after exploration (After 10 hours)

Account A / Account B

Account A Subtotal
  • Resources – 2962.9K total
  • Fragments – 24
  • Hammers – 24
  • Other items – 24 total
Account B subtotal
  • Resources – 2808.5K total
  • Fragments – 23
  • Hammers – 23
  • Other items – 23 total.

Account A has 5.5% more than Account B. (Number of items is rounded down to the nearest whole number.)

Therefore, we can see the following.

  • The only difference between the results of A and B is due to research.
  • General level, politics, skills, and equipment are irrelevant.
  • No gathering amount boost has been applied to the list of “Acquired Rewards” during exploring.

Test 2 – Research differences are more significant

Explored the mysterious relic for 8 hours.

Research Difference

  • Account A – Mysterious Relic Exploration +20%
  • Account B – Mysterious Relic Exploration +0%

Result Report

Account A / Account B

Account A Subtotal
  • Resources – 2717.3K total
  • Fragments – 22
  • Hammers – 22
  • Other items – 22 total
Account B Subtotal
  • Resources – Total 2263.6K
  • Fragments – 19
  • Hammers – 19
  • Other items – 19 total

Account A’s subtotal is 20% higher than Account B’s. (The number of items is rounded down to the nearest whole number.)

Therefore, we can see the following

  • The only difference between the results of A and B is due to research.
  • General level, politics, skills, and equipment are irrelevant.

Test 3 – With gathering speed item

(Account B in Test 2 did not use the gathering speed item.)

Explored the mysterious relics for 8 hours.

Result Report

Account B

Account B Subtotal

  • Resources – 2258.5K total
  • Fragments – 19
  • Hammers – 19
  • Other items – 19 total

Almost identical to the subtotal value in Test 2.
* The difference of a few seconds in the exploration time is probably causing a slight error in the amount of resources.

Therefore, we know the following.

  • Gathering speed-up items have no effect.

Test 4 – Different levels of relics

Explored Lv4 relic for 8 hours.

Result Report

Account B

Account B Subtotal

  • Resources – 1570.3K total
  • Fragments – 10
  • Hammers – 10
  • Other items – 16 total

For resources, it is about 70% compared to the value in test 3.
This is roughly in line with the ratio of exploration speed shown on the game screen.
– Mysterious Relics – 390/5s per player
– Lv4 Relics – 270/5s per player

For fragments and hammers, the value is about 52% of the Test 3 value.

For other items, it is about 84% of the Test 3 value.

Therefore, we can see the following.

  • The gathering speed is faster in high-level relics.

Thank you for verifying this.
So I have a question about the stay time and the amount of gathering.
Is there a significant difference in the amount of items gathered when comparing one 24 hour stay, three 8 hour stays, and 24 1 hour stays?
Also, if I stay longer, is there a limit to the number of items I can gather at one time?

What about troops and no general? Only troop load would be effected then. But same speed.Your opinion?

Is the relic chamber event will be permanent or when it will ends?

Thank you for the article. I think despite not changing the exploring speed, troop load would help us to stay longer in the relics, which means reducing the amount of stamina spent, so it is important.

I learned that research increases not only resources but also items.
I was hesitant to do research because it takes so many days at higher levels, but I found some value in it.
But I already got all the general’s fragments I wanted.

So, do you mean that it is more efficient to explore the mysterious relic with a few members using high-level siege machine?

I have found that there is a difference if using a general with a different gathering speed boost.
In your results you only go on gathering time. Have you tried sending the same amount of troops? This highlights the difference in the overall gathering time.

That must be overlooking something.
It has been proven in test result 1-1 that different gathering speeds do not change the results.
The reason why the gathering time differs when you send the same number, level, and type of troops is because the general’s troop load (equipment and skills) is different.
If only the troop load increases with the same troops, the gathering time will also increase.
It is not because of differences in gathering speed (skill, equipment, politics).
You can check these things in the troop selection screen before sending your troops out.

Thank you very much. All the points I was wondering about have been cleared up. I’ll send the extra general to the relics.

Thank you for your valuable report.
Does it not matter what type of troops I send?

Yes. It is the troop load that changes depending on the type of troop, not the amount gathered per hour.
(I added a supplement to the article.)
