I recently went back through some of the early acts to complete challenges I hadn’t quite completed on my initial run through. Mostly it was just chests and gold however I also had several Relic challenges incomplete (most with 1-2 relics to collect).
Unfortunately, despite running the relevant acts through dozens of times (easily 50 total runs of relevant levels) I have not collected a single missing relic. If I am remembering correctly (it’s been a week or two) they would just randomly drop from chests, golden chests, and/or magic+ enemies but despite slaughtering tons of chests and opening countless enemies I have not been able to find a thing…
At first, I thought this might be because I was using an Imp – maybe they are counted as “normal” items such that the imp is converting them? That would certainly be an impish thing to do… so I snagged an Adventure Doge real quick thinking that surely such a noble canine wouldn’t repeat the imps ignoble thefts, and yet I still couldn’t get a single relic to drop.
Honestly I’m not sure if this is a bug related to 1.6 (it could be that Crystals and Mythstones are on the same drop table as Relics and are pushing them off?) or if I am just misremembering how I got the numerous Relics I already have, or if I am just having an absolutely INCREDIBLE streak of bad luck.
Anyone care to correct me if I am wrong about how/where they are supposed to drop or confirm whether they have seen Relics drop since 1.6 (and on a character that is already well past those acts, in case it matters)?
