While it is up to you which Relics you want to use, there are a few we recommend you get and use as soon as you can to help in your playthrough.

For one, getting both the Gold Tooth and Tome of Knowledge should be top priorities, as the extra gold and EXP will both be a major help in the game, since some of the best items and collectibles require some money, and leveling up will make you stronger, so combat will be an easier endeavor.

Additionally, Sailent Sails and Falcon-eyed Parrot are good choices, since with the former, you can get around the map faster while on the vespertine, and with the latter, finding chests of collectibles you might have missed is so much easier, and perfect if you want to get achievements and go for a 100% playthrough. However, you could also check out other guides too for some extra help.

Lastly, if you struggle with the timing for blocks and specific attacks, using the Sequent Flare can make it a lot easier to see and learn the correct timing thanks to its obvious feedback of a rainbow-colored firework. I used this for my whole playthrough, and it made learning character’s attack timings and seeing when I was getting them right much easier, and in turn, I got more effective a lot quicker.
