|Update blog||Leagues III - Shattered Relics Launch|
The Shattered Relics League was the third league in Old School RuneScape. Originally set to release on 3 November 2021, the launch was delayed to 19 January 2022, and the league ended on 16 March 2022. It was announced on 3 February 2022 in a Modcast Q&A that it would be extended by two weeks, originally ending on 2 March 2022. The theme was set around collection and adventure and it was the first league to expand upon the lore of the game mode, with the introduction of The Sage.
Overview[edit | edit source]
In this iteration of Leagues, players have access to the entirety of the world map, rather than the area-restricted Twisted and Trailblazer Leagues. However, players do not have full access to their skills and various bosses; they must be unlocked through the use of Sage's Renown, a type of currency earned by completing specific tasks within the Shattered Relics League. In addition to Sage's Renown, completing these tasks also earns league points that can be used to purchase cosmetic rewards from the Leagues Reward Shop upon the end of the Shattered Relics League.
Relics, which are unlocks with powerful effects in past Leagues, are shattered into less-powerful fragments for this League. These fragments are collected by engaging in various activities within the League, such as skilling, minigames, and combat. While players initially can only equip one fragment, they can unlock the ability to equip more as additional tasks are completed.
Each fragment slot unlocked also brings additional passive bonuses that are always applied, such as experience and drop rate multipliers. Lastly, equipping enough fragments belonging to one category can grant set effects.
Restrictions[edit | edit source]
Unlike the first two leagues, there are no area restrictions in the Shattered Relics League. Instead, players begin the league with most Skills and Bosses locked, which can be unlocked with Sage's Renown. Players begin the league on the outskirts of Catherby, by The Sage. The free Home Teleport spell in each spellbook is also redirected to Catherby. Waystones are placed in key locations that allow players to quickly teleport around the world for free after unlocking them.
As with all leagues, all accounts are automatically set to standard Ironman Mode.
Tiers[edit | edit source]
As the player progresses through the league, you'll gain different passive effects as you level up through tiers. Items affected by the boosted drop rates can be found here.
Relics and fragments[edit | edit source]
Relics have been shattered into fragments and scattered all across Gielinor by The Sage who is concerned about the power that players hold. Individually, fragments contain a small portion of a relic's power, but they can be combined to create powerful effects. Fragments can be obtained by various activities through the world through RNG means. The number of fragments equipped is limited by the number of fragment slots unlocked, up to a maximum of seven. Fragments can also be leveled up to level 3 by gaining experience while they are equipped.
Set effects[edit | edit source]
Set effects become active once the player has equipped enough fragments from the same set. Each set effect requires a varying amount of fragments, and there may be multiple tiers within each set.
Boosted Drops[edit | edit source]
As fragment slots are unlocked, passive bonuses will activate. Specific items will received boosted drop rates. Rates begin at 1x, increase to 2x when four fragment slots are unlocked, and 3x when six slots are unlocked.
Tasks[edit | edit source]
Tasks in the Shattered Relics League allows players to earn league points and Sage's Renown, which allow the player to unlock more Fragment slots, skills, bosses and auto-unlock quests. Tasks span five different difficulty levels: Easy, Medium, Hard, Elite and Master. In the league, there are hundreds of tasks to complete, ranging from reaching a certain level in a skill to killing certain bosses. As with the previous league, tasks are also divided into regions despite the entire world being accessible, except for boss instances and also categorised by skill.
With every task completed, league points and Sage's Renown will be rewarded based on the difficulty of the task.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
After the league has concluded, players may spend league points to unlock rewards permanently. All the proposed rewards were polled and passed from October 7th-13th 2021. Returning rewards from past leagues include League trophies, a Home Teleport animation, league themed outfits, and a league banner. New rewards include a Weapon Variety Pack, a Dwarven Multicannon Ornament Kit, and a Void Knight Ornament Kit.
