The Grail looks alot like the Ark of the Covenant

edit: Mods, can you close the other Artifacts thread I started? (starting this one was unintentional; I had forgotten that posting a comment on the site will create a new thread here...)

It's strange... there is a bunch of Dwarven artifacts, but there are no dwarves in the game... Maybe Ubi / Nival are planning a dwarf town in the future?

Remember the Law? It was a cup proper in H4, and so it couldn't be that again in H5, so they reverted back to H3-style :disagree:

I was expecting about at least 200-300.

Dwarves were erradicated so the artifacts would remain scarce,in order to speed up gameplay :devil:

The icicle and the frosty shildy thing are perfect for me ;]

However, some of the artifact have lame colurs :/ Too bright and reminding me the colour palette of some games for GB ;P

The helm of Enlightenment looks... odd. It's... a turban. Besides that the artifacts look very nice, especially with the cartoonish style of the icons. The colours are very well done.

"only 53 artifacts :(

I remember it was said that they will make a single artifact matter more this time, so that there won't be "an abundance of artifacts" like in H3.

I personally like the pendant of mastery (more the effect than the look). Now we know how those 4th levels of skill can be obtained. :)

Ring of life adds +4 on creature hp!Isnt it a bit too much?That means that just one weeks population of lvl 1s gets as much HP as most of lvl 6s!

Maybe Ring of Life is a relic of some sort? But personally I don't like such a drastic effect either. It should provide regeneration instead. At least that's more subtle.

Still, I do hope there will be more artifacts introduced later, something interesting we haven't seen yet before.

Nope.They were exterminated during the great Werewolf Claws Hunt,which took place when someone decided to make a necklace out of them :devil:

I wonder where are the relics, the reeeeeally strong artifacts. (Yes, combining artifact into a much stronger one would be very nice.) Will there be a Marketplace of some sort where you can sell the unused gear?
