Amulets are accessories that give the players certain benefits once equipped. You can only equip one amulet at a time.

I wish to let you know beforehand that since all the amulets offer different advantages, it is simply impossible to take one amulet and claim it universally the best. Therefore, this is not a ranking but a list of all the amulets that can be considered better than the rest.

Now, without further ado, let us start this Remnant 2 best amulets list.

1. Twisted Idol

The Best Amulet For Armor Effectiveness Boost.

The twisted idol is fantastic for people using heavy armor as it will increase the effectiveness of your armor by 30% while also reducing the Encumbrance by 15, thus allowing you to move more swiftly in battle.

You can purchase this amulet from Cass at Ward 13. You can also obtain it after completing the Wailing Wood quest.

  • Greatly increases the efficiency of armor.
  • Reduces Encumbrance, resulting in less stamina consumption.
  • Does not contribute anything to damage.
  • This amulet might not appear on the shop.
  • Why I Chose This: Twisted Idol provides the best armor strength boost out of all amulets and also reduces Encumbrance, leading to lower stamina consumption.

2. Indignant Fetish

The Best Amulet For Tanking Hits.

Indignant Fetish [Image Captured by eXputer]
  • Why I Chose This: Indignant Fetish lets you punish enemies after getting hit as it provides dmg boost and negates further dmg, making it very viable for tank-builds.

If you get hit a lot during battle, then the Indignant Fetish can be one of your go-to amulets, as it increases your total damage by 25% after taking a hit from an enemy while reducing all incoming damage by 10%. It lasts for 20 seconds.

This amulet is, unfortunately, a random world drop at Losomn, so it either be incredibly easy for you to obtain this amulet or incredibly hard, based on your luck.

  • Makes taking hits beneficial with dmg bonus and dmg reduction.
  • Very useful for bosses that use multiple fast attacks.
  • Not that effective against hard-hitting enemeis or bosses.
  • Can be difficult to acquire as obtained randomly.

3. Shock Device

The Best Amulet For Shock Builds.

  • Why I Chose This: Shock Device is the best choice for Shock builds as it provides a substantial boost to both Shock and Overloaded dmg.

If the enemy you are against is weak to Shock damage, equipping the Shock Device is most recommended by me. It increases the player’s Shock damage by 20% and Overload damage by a whopping 50%.

The Shock Device talisman is located in Morrow Parish, Losom, at the Secret Passage in the Asylum.

  • Provides a buff to both Shock and Overload dmg.
  • Doesn’t require farming to obtain.
  • The buffs provided are only for Shock builds.
  • Acquired in a secret area that can be missed.

4. Butcher’s Fetish

The Best Crit Stat Boosting Amulet.

  • Why I Chose This: Butcher’s Fetish is very useful for melee builds as it provides crit rate and crit dmg bonus by using a charged attack that also effects bullets.

The Butcher’s Fetish is quite a disgusting-looking amulet in my opinion, but appearances can be deceiving as this amulet increases your critical damage by 25% and your critical chance by 15% for 15 seconds. However, these buffs are only activated after performing a charged melee attack on your opponent.

The Butcher’s Fetish amulet can be purchased from Reggie for 1,000 in-game currency.

  • Provides both crit rate and crit dmg.
  • Can be bought easily and is inexpensive.
  • The buff lasts for a relatively low duration.
  • Requires hitting an enemy with a charged attack to trigger.

5. Escalation Protocol

The Best Amulet For Clearing Hordes.

The Escalation Protocol amulet is one of my favorite amulets to use while I’m fighting hordes of enemies at a time, as this amulet increases all damage by 2.5% for 10 seconds after killing an enemy. This can be stacked ten times, thus potentially increasing your damage by 25% as you go on with your killing spree.

This amulet is located in the Root Earth area in the Corrupted Harbor. You must clear the engine room and go through the side path. There, you will need to defeat an Evil Ent Elite. The amulet is located on the rotting pod.

  • Provides stackable dmg bonus after killing multiple enemies.
  • The duration of the buffs can referesh after dealing dmg.
  • Duration of individual buffs is very low.
  • Effectiveness greatly diminishes in boss fights. 
  • Why I Chose This: Escalation Protocol is highly helpful in dealing with multiple enemies at once and provides several dmg bonuses which are refreshable.

6. Talisman of the Sun

The Best Amulet For Fire Builds.

  • Why I Chose This: Talisman of the Sun can effectively enhance your fire builds by providing Fire dmg and has great pairing with Fire Stone.

The Talisman of the Sun is basically the same as Shock Device but for Fire and Burn damage. This amulet can increase Fire damage by 20% and the Burning damage by 50%. Thus making it a fantastic piece of equipment to use against enemies weak against fire damage.

The Talisman of the Sun is located in the Expanding Glade in Yaesha.

  • Increases both Fire and Burning dmg.
  • Changes the dodge when paired with Ring Of Omens.
  • Specific only to fire builds so not great against fire resistant enemies.
  • Requires completing an event to obtain.

7. Navigator’s Pendant

The Highest Flat HP Boosting Amulet.

The Navigators Pendant grants you some extra Health, Stamina, and Armor Encumbrance, which grants it a deserving spot in my Remnant 2 Best Amulets guide. It grants 25 health, 25 stamina, and -10 Armor Encumbrance. This Amulet is found in N’Erud.

  • Boosts Health and Stamina, granting an edge in combat.
  • Also reduces Armor Encumbrance, improving dodge.
  • Requires defeating a boss to obtain.
  • To obtain this amulet you have to give up on Rusted Navigator’s Pendant.
  • Why I Chose This: Navigator’s Pendant provides general defensive buffs of all types which turns out to be pretty helpful during tough encounters.

8. Rusted Navigator’s Pendant

The Best Armor Encumbrance Reducing Amulet.

Aside from the Navigator’s Pendant, you can also opt for the Rusted Navigator’s Pendant if you wish to. It offers 20 health, 20 stamina, and -15 Armor Encumbrance. The Rusted Navigator’s Pendant can also be found in N’Erud in Astropath’s Respite at the top of the spire.

  • Reduces more Armor Encumbrance than its counterpart.
  • Doesn’t require farming to obtain.
  • Is lost after obtaining Navigator’s Pendant.
  • Acquired from a side dungeon that can be missed.
  • Why I Chose This: Rusted Navigator’s Pendant gives overall boost to defenses, greatly reduces Armor Encumbrance, and doesn’t need tedious farming.

9. Ankh of Power

The Best Amulet For Dmg Bonus.

Amulet- Ankh of Power [Image Captured by eXputer]
  • Why I Chose This: Ankh of Power can enhance each and every kind of damage and works well with certain relics to increase its damage enhancing power.

The Ankh of Power amulet is interesting as it symbolizes a holy symbol. It grants you a 15% increase in all types of damage. If you were to consume a relic, then it would increase your damage by 30% for 15 seconds.

This amulet is found in Root Earth- Ashen Wastelands. It is located inside a two-story facility.

  • Boosts all types of damage sources be it melee or ranged.
  • This boost can temporarily be doubled after using a relic.
  • The second buff lasts for a short duration.
  • Is acquired at the last area of the game.

10. Hallowed Egg

The Best Amulet For Melee Dmg Bonus.

Amulet- Hallowed Egg [Image Credit goes to Us]
  • Why I Chose This: Hallowed Egg allows you to effectively use both firearms as well as melee weapons as it can exceptionally boost melee dmg by using ammo.

The Hallowed Egg can be considered one of the Remnant 2 Best Amulets thanks to its ability to enhance combat capabilities. While the Hallowed Egg is equipped. Suppose you spend at least 30% of your firearm’s magazine to deal damage. The Melee damage of your character will also be increased by 10% for 7 seconds.

It can be stacked five times, potentially increasing the damage to 50% if you stack it to the maximum amount successfully. The Hallowed Egg amulet is located in Yaesha.

  • Greatly increases melee dmg by consuming ammo.
  • Allows hybrid combat mixing both melee and ranged attacks.
  • The buffs lasts for a short duration of 10s.
  • Does not work well with low magazine weapons.

11. One True King Sigil

The Best Amulet For Boosting Sigil Rings' Effect.

I must say that this amulet will only appeal to certain players as it increases the Mod damage by 20% and enhances the effect of Faerin’s Sigil and Faelin’s Sigil by 50% per Sigil equipped.

The One True King Sigil is found in Losomn but can also be crafted at Nimue.

  • Buffs the dmg of weapon mods by 20%.
  • Boosts the effect of Faerin’s Sigil and Faelin’s Sigil.
  • Effectiveness diminishes if Sigil rings are not equiped.
  • Both rings are required to craft this amulet.
  • Why I Chose This: One True King Sigil provides multiple beneficial effects i.e, increasing Mod dmg and boosting the effect of the two Sigil rings.

12. Soul Anchor

The Best Amulet For Summon Builds.

This amulet is ideal in case you plan to use summons, as the Soul Anchor increases all damage by 20% for 30 seconds after summoning. 

The Soul Anchor can be crafted at the Bloodmoon Altar in Yaesha.

  • Increases all dmg dealt upon summoning.
  • This buff lasts for a long duration (30s).
  • Doesn’t take effect if summon is not active.
  • Requires special crafting materials to craft.
  • Why I Chose This: Soul Anchor is the best amulet for builds focused on summons as it provides high dmg bonus just by activating a summon. 

13. Detonation Trigger

The Best Amulet For Explosives Builds.

The Detonation Trigger is the ideal amulet for players wanting some extra explosive damage, as this amulet increases your explosion damage by 25% and applies 405 Burning damage on the explosion for 5 seconds.

Obtaining this amulet is a bit troublesome as you first need to reach the Extraction Hub checkpoint in N’Eurd. Once there, you must look for a giant piston hitting the ground. You will be able to hear it from far away. Once you find it, crouch and go underneath it. You’ll find yourself in a tunnel. Reach its end, and you will find the amulet near a cliff.

  • Causes all kinds of explosions to do bonus dmg.
  • These explosions also apply burning to enemies.
  • Only a set number of abilities can cause explosions.
  • Not practical against bosses and burn resistant foes.
  • Why I Chose This: Detonation Trigger is your got-to choice if you like to explode your enemies as upon equiping this amulet all explosions deal more dmg and apply burn.

14. Vengeance Idol

The Best Amulet For Risky Play.

  • Why I Chose This: Vengeance Idol favours those who like to challenge themselves by remaining at low HP throughout the game by boosting their dmg at half HP.

For players wanting some extra damage, I will say that the Vengeance Idol has their back, as it will increase your damage by 30% if your health is below 50%. 

This amulet is located in Yaesha in one of the chambers of the dungeon in Kaeula’s Rest.

  • Greatly increases damage at half health.
  • The damage boost doesn’t have any cooldown to trigger.
  • Remaining at 50% HP can be dangerous.
  • Only obtained through random loot.

15. Jester’s Bell

The Best Amulet For Quick Skill Cast.

  • Why I Chose This: If your combat style relies on skill or mod usage then Jester’s Bell should be your choice as it increases their cast speed whilst boosting your dmg.

The Jester’s Bell is similar to the One True King Sigil amulet as it increases Mod and Skill Cast Speed by 35%. Aside from that, casting a Mod or Skill will increase your damage by 20% for 15 seconds.

This amulet resides in Losomn. You must go into the palace and perform the clap emote in front of the jester to obtain the Jester’s Bell.

  • Increases the speed of mod usage and skill casting.
  • Using a skill or mod grants a dmg bonus to all attacks.
  • The dmg bonus has a short uptime.
  • Slightly difficult and complex to obtain.

16. Death’s Embrace

The Most Versatile Amulet In Remnant 2.

Death’s Embrace [Image Captured by eXputer]
  • Why I Chose This: Death’s Embrace provides a dmg buff that remains active for almost all the time as HP is rarely kept at full and also provides Haste to escape attacks.

And finally, the Death’s Embrace, I and many others consider it one of the best, if not the best, Remnant 2 amulet, thanks to its unique properties of increasing your damage by 20% when your health is below 100%. It also provides you with “Haste” when health drops to 50%.

This amulet is in Yaesha, but you can purchase it from Bedal of the Vaunnt.

  • The dmg bonus remains active even at 99% HP.
  • Also grants Haste to escape further attacks quickly.
  • Can not be effectively used in builds focused on lifesteal.
  • The Haste bonus is activated at lower health.

My Thoughts On Best Amulets In Remnant 2

Although all of the amulets provide unique buffs and are in a class of their own but some of the Amulets that were my personal favourite include Shock Device that is an essential for Shock builds, similarly Talisman of the Sun for Fire, Butcher’s Fetish for Crit and Death’s Embrace which in my opinion is the best amulet so far.

And with that, my guide on Remnant 2 amulets ends. I hope my guide helped you in deciding which amulet is best for your build/ class, and speaking of class, consider reading the guide- Remnant 2 Best Solo Classes and Best Starting Class.

Aside from the amulets, consider reading the guides on Remnant 2 Best Traits and Best Melee Weapons as well, but that’s all from me. If you think I’ve missed an amulet worth mentioning, let me know about it in the comment section below.
