    used up other gems I had and just tried getting relics from:

    Butcher's War Cleaver (15 made)
    Guardian Axe (9 made)
    True War Cleaver (13 made)

    Not one relic returned... Only enchanted essence, :( Bah!

    115 imbuing, human, using Ter Mur public forge, Bronze Runic, DC ingots... And gold ingots when i ran out of DC.

    I wish I had known what you were doing as using a bronze runic I made 5 guardian axes from DC =zero relics, 5 true war cleavers = zero relics, 5 twinkling simitars gold ingots = 1 relic fragment. (this is with a gargoyle 120 imbuing at the queens forge.)

    Im wondering if i should have tried to do another imbue on the axes and true war cleavers before unravelling... Perhaps that might have made a diff?

    N/m. Time to go mining i guess to find some perfect emeralds.... Least those and knight war cleavers yield relics.

    You think there would be some other way though, other than unravvelling arti's *hehe*.

    *kicks self for selling a bunching of artis dirt cheap*

    Don't imbue the ML crafted weapon. It gets hit by a penalty taking it to 70% intensity for unravels once imbued. This, as documented earlier in the thread, probably nullifies your attempt to get relics.

    i just made 350 true war cleavers and unraveled 300 relics and about 400 EE. i used bronze runic and dc ingots. Brilliant amber is much cheaper then perfect emeralds so it works out to making the same amount of money on selling relics.

    Brilliant amber - "cheaper"?

    In my experience it's 2x5 times more expensive, on my shard, as there's so few people logging that the majority of colored wood comes from vet reward tree stumps.

    This all was before Neo Shame loot.
    After Neo Shame loot, you can hit Shame/Wrong/Covetous level 3 and 4, kill a bunch of high end foes and get a lot of relics from unravelling. :)

    I'm with you @Duke_Hammerfest . When I go hunting for UEVs, I loot pretty much everything and pull down probably around 100 relics in an hour when I get the statue bonus. Without I suppose it drops down to 75 or so perhaps.

    Well, as I said, they aren't now.
    But before the neo-shame loot was rolled in, they were quite hard to get, so you had to craft them. Very little loot other than some artifacts would unravel into relic fragments.

    Relic was 50-100k per one... imbuing any relic mod (LMC, HCI, etc) was pretty expensive)
    with neo-shame loot relic is easy to get
