Relics are shards of the power of a God.  You will only ever encounter them
in pieces - never as completed items, and it is up to you to combine THREE 
shards of each relic, to create a completed relic.

To use a relic, you right-click on it in your inventory, and then left-click
on whatever item you want to imbue with the relic's power.  Do not worry if 
you only have a one-third or two-thirds of a completed relic, as you can 
always add the other shards of the same relic to the original later, thus
increasing the power of your enchanted items as you play through the game.

Ordinarily each third of a relic contains a third of the power of the whole
relic, which makes mathematical sense - however as an incentive to complete
each relic, once it IS completed, you get a "completed relic bonus" which
is randomly selected from a list that I have tried to flesh-out at the end
of the relics section for you.

Each relic is equipment-type-specific, so for example the Essence of Artemis'
Bowstring can only be used on bows, whereas the Essence of Archimedes' Mirror
can only be used on shields.

There is nothing wrong, of course, with holding onto a relic until it is 
completed - I frequently do this - with a view to keeping it.  Relics are
sometimes called for as ingredients in the creation of Artifacts.

If you decide that you have made a mistake and enchanted an item with a relic
that you would like to get back, you can visit any of the Enchanters in the
game (bearing in mind that this is not possible in Titan Quest - only in 
Immortal Throne).  Enchanters, as you are aware, can separate an item and its
corresponding relic - however you will only be able to retrieve EITHER the
item OR the relic, so choose carefully.

This is also an expensive process, so don't forget THAT either !!

One final thing to note is that there are three types of relic.  There are 
essences, which are the relics you will find on the normal difficulty setting,
there are embodiments, which are the relics you will find on the epic 
difficulty setting, and finally there are incarnations, which are the relics
you will find on the legendary difficulty setting.

So in a bid to be helpful, I have listed as many relics as I have encountered
in Titan Quest (and Immortal Throne), together with what they look like in
terms of their depictions, what they can be used on, what level you must be
to use them, and what bonuses they confer.

PLEASE NOTE that this section is a work in progress, and that whilst I have 
listed every single relic I have encountered on all three difficulties, there
are some that I still need to find.  I will therefore update this guide as 
and when I do (or you can notify me of the gaps so I can add them in - you 
will get full credit).  Cheers.
