The continent of Fodlan is the main setting for the game. The land is occupied by three rival nations. Adrestian Empire is situated in the southwest, the Leicester Alliance is in the east, and the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus is located in the north.
Furthermore, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is set during two time periods. The first time period is when the characters were all students at the Officers Academy. Then the game skips 5 years and follows the reunion of the students and then the three nations go to war.
What are the Fire Emblem: Three Houses Relics?
The Relics are known as Heroes’ Relics in the game. These are important sets of weaponry in both Fire Emblem: Three Houses and its sequel/spin-off Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. In the game, some characters believe these were gifts from their goddess.
Each of these Relics is fueled by a Crest Stone, this is why it feels like they are alive or have organic qualities. Every one of these Relics has a specific Crest that they have an accord with. So it is advised to use each relic with a character who has the specific Crest for the best result.
In addition, of course, Relics can be used by anyone but if the user doesn’t possess the Crest that the relic resonates with, they might be at risk of getting consumed by the malicious energy present in the hero Relic, which will transform them into a demon.
If a person has a Crest even if it is not the one that resonates with the Relic. It will make the transformation very unlikely but also turn the Relic into a simple weapon, missing all of its uniqueness.

Areadbhar is another one of the Fire Emblem: Three Houses Best Heroes’ Relics. This is a lance that is linked to the Blaiddyd Crest. While being one of the best lances it is also one of the easiest Relics to obtain in the game.

Moreover, Crusher is another incredible Relic that is locked to the Azure Moon route. You will need to obtain Gilbert for this paralogue and he is exclusive to the Azure Moon route. The paralogue is called “Weathervanes of Fodlan”.
It is a pretty simple chapter/quest but we are here to guide you through it so that you can obtain the weapon in the least infuriating way possible.

The Aegis Shield is easily one of the strongest defensive items in the game but beware it is also unlike most of the Relics we mentioned so far and is one of the hardest ones to obtain in the game. It is one of the strongest Fire Emblem: Three Houses Relics.
It is not locked to a specific route like the previous two Relics and can be obtained from any. The player will need to recruit Felix which will let them gain access to the “True Chivalry” paralogue. Partake in it to get the Aegis Shield as a reward.

Sword of The Creator

Thyrsus is without doubt by far the best Fire Emblem: Three Houses Heroes’ Relic. It should be the one the player should be most motivated to get. The Relic is a staff and it is connected to the Crest of Gloucester and Lorenz.
It is one of the few Relics in the game that the game encourages to try out on different characters/units. When a unit is equipped with this staff, the range of all their spells increases by 2.
In addition, the buff in range makes the deadliest Mages in the game even deadlier, as now they can simply snipe their enemies with their strongest spells.
There is a drawback to the weapon. If a unit doesn’t possess a crest it only deals 10 damage each turn. Which can be quite low so we advise you use it with a character who has a crest.
Some of the best mages in the game possess a Crest which renders the drawback into nothing. Lysithea is a good pick or even Annette if you are not using her with Crusher.
