Guide to the Exposed Reliquaries

January 27, 2010

During one of the Live Events leading up to the release of the Land of the Dead, hidden Reliquaries were introduced that could only be discovered by wearing Aviator Goggles.  These Reliquaries contained Scarabs, which were our first look at the new currency system being introduced with the new zone.

After the Land of the Dead was opened, the Goggles became only useful in finding hidden treasure inside the Tomb of the Vulture Lord.  However, Reliquaries and their treasures remained but in a different form.

The Exposed Reliquaries that can be found in the Land of the Dead don’t need goggles to be found and do still contain Scarabs, however they also can contain much more desirable treasures as well.

Feel like doing some treasure hunting?  Read on!


Exposed Reliquaries

After countless years beneath the sands, the lost treasure in this Reliquary is now yours for the taking.

General Information

There are a total of twenty Reliquaries that have been found in the Land of the Dead: ten residing on the Order side of the river and ten on the Destruction side.

Only one Reliquary is in the world at any given time.  Once it is opened, it will then disappear and a new one will appear in a different location.  The new Reliquary will always be on the opposite side of the river from the one you just opened.

All twenty locations are fixed spawn points.  There is no apparent pattern to their spawn.  (Based on 1 specific location only spawning for me two times in ~75 pulls.)

The Treasure

Not everything you get from the Reliquaries is amazing, but sometimes you hit the jackpot.


Silver Scarabs – out of ~75 pulls, I ended up with over 50 of these.


Gold Scarabs – ended up with 5 of these.

Fleshrender of Settra (Trophy) – ended up with 6 of these

Khalida’s Medicinal Satchel (Trophy) – ended up with 6 of these

Ritual Blade of Styx (trophy) – Never got one during my tests, but guildie has 3


Various Souls – ended up with 3 of these

Very Rare

Funerary Shroud of Khutep (Back) – ended up with 1 of these

Funerary Shroud of Khalida (Back) – Never got one during my tests

Funerary Shroud of Settra (Back) – Never got one during my tests

It seems the inventory icons for Khalida and Settra are swapped right now, so go by the name for what it looks like, not the icon.  The icon for Khutep is correct though.


I’m going to do this in two ways.  One is a map showing the general areas as that is enough for some people.  For people like me, I’ll list the exact coordinates.  Once you’ve made the rounds a few times and seen each one spawn, they’ll be unnecessary as you’ll have their locations memorized and will easily be able to recognize them from a distance.

Don’t forget, once you grab one on one side of the river, the next will be on the other side.

Hopefully, you’ll see many of these soon.

Happy Hunting!

    Have you found anything in the tomb? I ran the tomb between the Scorpion bosses and the front and saw nothing.

      The goggles make extra treasure appear in the second boss room.

      Oh… that explains the few extra treasures when I was running thou the tomb. Last time I put up 18 treasures but nothing changed on the boss kill..

    Thank you so much for the info. If it wasn’t for your write up I wouldn’t have been able to get my hands on the Funerary Shroud of Settra today.

    6 hours of work and your map. Didn’t even know about these before yesterday.

    I’ve opened over 90 reliquaries now, most findings beings the scarabs. I’ve found one soul, and no cloaks yet.

    The most frustrating part is running to the other side and after passing all known spawn locations, realizing someone already cracked it open and it’s now on the other side.

      Agreed. I have a way around that, but it’s a secret. 😉

    Opened about 150 of them before i got the shroud of khutep, then in the next i opened i got the kalida(whitch i gave to a friend) Best about it that i can put the regular lotd souls in the slots (37 str, 75-85 melepow, 3-4 %bock etc). Not the 5 mele crit, 5% reduced crit, 12% chans to be undefendable for 12sec etc.

      Bah! I didn’t test that as I figured they wouldn’t take souls since they weren’t labeled soul vessels. I will do so today to double-check. Thanks!

    Wasted 2 weeks trying to get a cloak. Never again, unless we bring 20 people to stand on each of the spawns.

    i just found Funerary Shroud of Khalida cannot be used lotd Soul… but Khutep can use it..

    so i would like to know if Funerary Shroud of Settra can use the lotd soul.

    Anyone know if the tooltip on Khalida shroud is bugged? I’ve just gotten one, and not equipping it until I know.

    • gaarawarr permalink
      March 12, 2010 7:46 pm

      The stats are right as is the ability, the picture is wrong as I noted.

      Then I feel perversely glad I decided to be charitable to my guildie who desperately wanted a cloak.

    • Raggnarok permalink

      I picked up Khalida yesterday (3/27/2010). The tooltip is “bugged”. The effect lasts for 20 seconds, deals 112 back to the attacker, but it absorbs up to 265 damage (not 47). The effect is cancelled after 265 damage is absorbed. I am curious to test this with Gromril Plating -> Pop this morale ability off first, then the cloak’s ability… would I have 7465 damage absorb for 20 seconds wih 112 outgoing damage to each attacker!?

      The cooldown on the effect is 6 minutes. Is this the same for the other 2 cloaks? I can also confirm that you cannot socket LOTD talismans.

      Gaarawarr, thanks for your contributions to this game.

    come on… tell us 😀

      What part of “secret” didn’t you understand? hehe. Besides, it’s not so much a secret as a strategy. Think about it and you’ll get it.

    Hey Gara- are the reliquaries still around after 1.3.6? I have not found one since the update. Maybe I am just having bad luck and someone else is farming at the same time but i’ve been looking for them when the server is most dead. It’s about a year later let us know your work around! 🙂

    • August 25, 2010 6:08 pm

      Hmm…haven’t checked since the Patch but I’ll keep my eyes open.

      As for the secret, it’s nothing major like people blew it into. lol. Just get the same number of people as there are Reliquaries in one warband and have one person at each spot. Insta-pop/open farming. You just have to coordinate loot distribution as some pop way more frequently than others. Crowd-sourcing ftw!

  17. Godly permalink
    August 25, 2010 8:04 pm

    Lol… Ok, already figured as much since I don’t have a warband at my disposal what I’ve done in the past is have a character logged in on each side of the river. Kinda saves me some time. I spent about 3hrs roaming around today and did not find one reliquary. :/

    • August 25, 2010 8:40 pm

      Ask around. I don’t have warbands at my disposal either, but there’s usually a lot of people willing to do this if it’s organized and they’re guaranteed some decent loot which this way pretty much does.

    Thanks a lot mate. I wasn’t even aware of these but I’m going to have fun finding them with your guide. Cheers 😀

    Are you sure that there’s a reliquary at the very top right corner? I’ve been farming reliquaries for a while now and there have never been a reliquary there.. Anyways, thanks for the guide, helped me alot!

    • June 28, 2011 11:46 pm

      Positive. However, all reliquaries pop randomly. You’re guaranteed it will pop on one side, then the other, but locations are completely random and thus can run streaks of never seeing them at all. The reason I know for a fact it’s there is that I created this guide on the PTS with no one on it and ran about 200+ pulls. A couple locations literally only popped 2-3 times after that many pulls.

      Yep, 10 minutes after I made my post I found a reliquary there :).
      Anyways, thanks to your guide and some persistance from my side I finally found a Settra shroud.. yaay.
