Stellaris – How to Steal Relics from Other Empires

In this guide, I got over how to steal any relic off of another empire when you land on their capital. There is a 5% chance that normal empires take a single relic when you occupy their capital, and you do not get to choose which relic you steal.

The Basics

There is a 5% chance that a normal empire takes a single relic when they occupy their enemies capital, and they do not get to choose which relic they steal. Barbaric Despoilers have a 10% chance to seize a relic when they land on their enemies capital.

If you can wipe out the enemy empire, then a dig site with their relics will appear on their old capital.

You can check victory score for relics to pick war targets in competitive mps

I think you should be able to trade relics, as they can go between players in “wars” to transfer them. A trade is more fair, as an aggressor could break their word against a helpful player wouldn’t be an issue in the mps I host)

Maybe not an option because you could cheese cooldowns on relics/ maybe be hard to program so that the cooldown is galaxy wide instead of just within an empire.

  1. Pretty interesting, it makes sense though that despoilers would have double chance since they’re essentially space vikings/pirates.
