Age of Empires 4 brings the series back to the Middle Ages and is particularly close to Age of Empires 2. As in the big model, the developer studio has therefore also brought back relics. In reality, relics are religious objects. Mostly physical remains or parts of the personal belongings of a canonized person.
In a video game-like Age of Empires 4, of course, these finds primarily have playful effects and can provide advantages in multiplayer – in very different ways. In this guide, we explain what you can do with the remains of the holy people.
Find and collect relics on the map
Damned! Hiked through the Black Forest again and suddenly stumbled upon a glowing statue in which the right kneecap of Saint Friedolin is kept! Well, at least that’s how it happens in Age of Empires 4. This is where the relics are distributed all over the map at the beginning of each game.
The locations are completely random, so you have no choice but to uncover the map with your scouts and look for the relic symbol. Usually, this happens on the side. Depending on the number of players, between four and 20 relics are scattered on the map.
Without exception, religious units can collect relics (right-click) and transport them. So monks (England, China, France), prelates (Holy Roman Empire), warrior monks (Rus), imams (Abbasids), shamans (Mongols), and scholars (Delhi).
These units can be trained in monasteries or the equivalent from the time of knighthood. Factions that receive these units beforehand (for example the prelates of the Holy Roman Empire) can also only pick up relics from the third age onwards.
What do relics bring in buildings?
Once you’ve grabbed a relic, it’s best to bring it back to your base. You can have your monk bring the holy objects to a monastery or to the appropriate building of your faction. Simply select the monk and the relic and then click with the right mouse button on the building.
In a monastery: As soon as you bring a relic into a religious building, the relic generates 100 gold per minute there. A total of 20 relics fit into one of these buildings. If you put in a lot of effort, you can earn 2,000 gold per minute in this way. Should you research tithe barns in the same building, you will receive an additional 30 gold, food, and stone per minute and relic.
The Holy Roman Empire
The Holy Roman Empire is known as relic hunters, as this faction receives significantly more bonuses as a result. With this faction, you can stow the relics in outposts, towers, keep or harbors instead of in a monastery. Then they not only generate 100 gold per minute but also increase the range of vision by 25 percent and the armament of the buildings by 50 percent. They also do 35 percent more damage and can shoot 20 percent further.
In ports, relics increase the speed of attack by ships by five percent.
Wololo: using relics in battle
Monks can be dangerous for the plans of your opponents if you equip them with relics. As long as a religious entity is carrying a relic, it can use the conversion ability.
Conversion: This ability creates a circular zone around the unit, after which the unit begins to sing the famous Wololo. If enemy units are still in the zone after six seconds, they will all be drawn to your side.
Conversion is powerful but needs to be well coordinated. Since it is sufficient to simply flee from the monk, you should create a distraction elsewhere beforehand. You should also protect the monk, otherwise, he may be slain before conversion.
Tip: The swift warrior monks of the Rus are particularly suitable for conversion. After all, thanks to their horses, they are very mobile and can even defend themselves.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Korisca
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of Security on Vandelay Island.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Korisca in Hi-Fi Rush.
Korisca is the fourth main boss that players will get to face in Hi-Fi Rush. Players will fight her in the 6th stage of the game where Chai will break into her office to talk her out rather than fighting but you will end up getting fighting her. Korisca fight is different than the previous boss fights and at the start, you will get to parry and dodge her attacks.
At the start, you will get to parry attacks by pressing the parry button which is B at the perfect timing of her attacks. Before she gets to attack you, you will listen a beat to which she readies her attacks. You need to memorize that beat and press the Parry button in the same order and time to perfectly parry her attacks. After parrying her attacks three times, she will use Wind Attacks which are un-parryable.
You will have to use the dodge button which is RB to dodge the wind attack and use the parry to parry the rest of the attacks. Un-parryable attacks are shown with a wind symbol before she gets to attack you. As you deplete her HP one time, her health will regenerate and she will throw more fast-paced and longer combos at you.
Make sure to memorize all the hits of the combo and press the parry and dodge buttons accordingly. You will not get to land any combo or special attack because you want her to join your team in taking down SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Zanzo
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the different parts of Vandelay Island and encounter different enemies. As players progress through the main story of the game, they will get to fight the main heads of Vandelay Island as well which are the main bosses of the game. One of the bosses that players will get to fight is Zanzo who is the head of the R&D Branch where all the AI Development of SPECTRA happens.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Zanzo in Hi-Fi Rush.
Zanzo is the third boss of the game which players will encounter in the fourth stage of the game. Defeating Zanzo takes a bit of an alternative way rather than fighting him in a 1v1 battle. Zanzo has created many machines and tools with his AI Development skills and players will have to go through all the waves of enemies that Zanzo has created. By doing this, players will be exhausting the Budgets of Zanzo.
Players will go through different choruses of Zanzo where he will bring out his different machines that you have to defeat in order to defund Zanzo. In the first chorus, you will get to fight the normal enemies. Defeat them to move on to the next chorus where you will get to fight the first major machine named “PGR-0101”. This machine has a variety of attacks as well as a shield. The best way to defeat it is to call Macaron who will destroy the shield of the machine and you will get the opening where you will be able to land the combos with your attack. Do the perfect timing combos to recharge your special attack. Do the Special Attack along with calling Peppermint to quickly defeat it.
The Budget of Zanzo greatly decreases after surviving the second chorus in the simulator. Later in the chorus, you will get to fight the enemies with the shield that you can break by calling Peppermint as well as Macaron. Use Macaron to break the shield of some enemies and for the rest of the enemies call peppermint. Take out the enemies one by one to encounter the next technology of Zanzo. You will get to fight the Drones for which you will have to parry their attacks. Parrying their attacks will give you the opportunity to hit them again and you will be able to take them out in no time. Call Peppermint as well while fighting the drones.
In the third and last chorus, you will make your way to the lava area where you will have to dodge the falling lava balls. Dodge the green marks on the ground to dodge the lava balls and use the zipline to move to other areas. You will make your way to the Gift Basket where the last fight takes place. You will get to fight the same enemies as before where you will have to call Macaron to take their shields down and then attack them with your combo attacks and special attacks. However, the main thing that you want to focus on during the fight is falling lava balls.
Make sure to dodge the green areas on the ground to dodge the lava. Fight the enemies by calling Peppermint and Macaron to take them out. Once you have defeated the enemies, you will see the lens from earlier in the fight. You need to attack the lens which will start a sequence. Complete the sequence by pressing the buttons on the screen to start a cutscene. Zanzo will get defunded in the cutscene which leads Chai to defeat Zanzo and retrieve the USB which contains the Data about SPECTRA.
Hi-Fi Rush: How to Defeat Rekka
Hi-Fi Rush is full of action along with a taste of countless beats. Players will get to explore the city of Vandelay where they will get to uncover cool technologies as well as fight different enemies. As players progress through the game, they will get to fight different bosses that have only one purpose, to recall (Kill) the defected which is Chai, our main character. One of the main bosses that players will get to fight is Rekka.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to defeat Rekka in Hi-Fi Rush.
Rekka’s both arms are robotic and she will be doing a lot of punching attacks as well as dashing attack combos with them. The Punching attacks are easier to dodge but if you get hit by one of the dashing combo attacks, you will be hit by the rest of the combo as well so, try to dodge it by looking at the ground. There will be a range meter and the direction of where Rekka will be dashing. Stay away from the range and the direction and let her complete her combo so, you don’t get in her way while she is doing the combo.
To deal damage to Rekka, hit her with your attack combos and try to sync them with the beat to deal extra damage and charge your special attack quickly. Once the special attack is charged, use it to deal a decent amount of damage to her. You can also call Peppermint during the fight to deal more damage to her. Once you have lowered her first bar, she will get stunned and you will get to deplete her first bar of HP. After that, she will remove the cover of the floor to absorb the electric current on her robotic arms.
Now, she will be able to land the punches with electric current. Punches can be dodged easily but she can trick you with the moves. She will also be doing the ground slam with the electric current that has a bit of range. If you are inside the ground slam range then you will get electrocuted which will take a lot of your HP. Try to maintain a distance from her and don’t go to remove the cover of the arena because it will give you damage as well. She will also do the slam attack on the electric wires which will generate shock waves in the arena and in order to dodge that, you will have to double jump and grab one of the magnets in the air.
She will create an energy shield around her which can be easily broken by calling peppermint. Other than dodging her moves, you can easily damage her by hitting her with the combo and calling Peppermint. Once you have depleted the second bar of her HP, you will get to complete a sequence of dodging the pipes that are thrown by Rekka. Dodge the Pipes by moving left and right and after the sequence, you can just use your special attack on her and call peppermint at the same time to deal great damage to her. She will be using pipes to do the slam attacks which can be dodged easily. She will also use her arms to grab you so, try to avoid it by doing a double jump until she stops trying to grab you. Other than that, just keep doing your combo attacks and calling peppermint to deal damage to her.
After depleting the third bar of her HP, the arena will turn red and she will begin to do the dashing combo with electric arms. You can just keep your distance until she has done the combo. After that, use your special attack if charged and call peppermint to deal damage. She will also be using the rest of her attacks so, just dodge them and keep calling peppermint to deplete her HP gradually. Once you get close to her, do the combo and land the perfect sync to stun her and do the special attack to defeat her.
