Q about assembling a relic

SimpkinSimpkin Posts: 7,123 Member
you know the relics you can assemble. Will any crystal do when inserting it into the relic? Or is the a special one?

    Any crystal that has been cut, but rare is better than uncommon because the effects are stronger/longer lasting when you cast the spell. Common gems have the weakest effect.
    If I just posted an outfit you like, I have good news - there is more where that came from!

    we all try ...

    The outcome of the blessing/curse will vary depending on the kind of crystal used (common, uncommon, or rare). Using the different combination of relic tops and bottoms, the effects are summarized below (copied from this web page because the print is too small for me to read): http://mouseysvirtualmonsters.tumblr.com/post/171377876507/jungle-adventure-mystical-relics

    that is a nice quick peek at what they all do, though some aren't quite spot on (the 'death by' ones, for example, give you the start of them. electrocution one sets it up so your sim will die if they repair electronics while the moodlet is up but if they never do, the moodlet fades and nothing happens to the sim. the combustion one will set the sim on fire at random times, so a better chance they'll die. and the poison one has the fun 'might get better in 12 hours, might have to wait a week to see if they die after all' from the normal poison death (they give you plenty of time to save the sim for that one). so not exactly guaranteed deaths with them, though the list looks like they are)

    the blessings of wealth, also, are not a one-time thing, but show up in royalty reports for quite a while

    and something worth mentioning is that all those curses listed each have a unique way to reverse them and turn them into powerful blessings. overall, i really do like their addition to the game, even if i don't really use them all that much (i am considering giving some to various 'witch' sims to mimic spellcasting, though. or maybe to a mystical villain type instead of a tech villain)

    My Sim can't "insert crystal" or "Fuse With" even though she has all the items necessary! It's grayed out

    read the description on the grayed out option. It should tell you what is wrong. Is the crystal refined?
