How to activate Artifacts

To activate artifacts you need to get to the new hidden realm. You can do this by going to the Sky Meadow realm, underneath it. It should be partially underneath the main map area. There are nine cycle commands for you to input. The code changes based on what artifact you want to unlock. To find the correct codes for the artifacts, you need to visit different realms in the realm. They will have stone tablets with nine symbols on them. Whatever nine symbols you have, you input them at the computer on the bottom to enter the new hidden realm.

Go through the portal and you will find an item called an Artifact Reliquary. Interact with it and multiple enemies spawn in at your location. The enemies you defeat at the location will drop items that break away the shield that the location also spawns. After the shield goes away, you can take the artifact found at the location, based on the code you used to unlock it.
