Relics & Ruins

This data-pack gives Minecraft structured the much needed love they need by adding rare and special collectibles which give you magical effects when used in your mainland or offhand! They are structure specific and may not be found in every structure so get searching!


1. Make sure you ENABLE more fruitful loot and have it downloaded in your world along with relics & ruins!... the pack will also let you know if it doesn't exist

2.Install and enable the resource pack. You'll know if it works if you don't see clocks with custom names on all items! (you may need to upgrade the resource-pack from older versions)
3. Install the pack and you should be good to go. If you want the items in creative mode you can run /function relics:giveall


1. Disable relics & ruins + any other more fruitful loot related packs
3. Delete relics & ruins from the world folder
3. Re-enable all those other packs

How do I obtain a relic

Go to structures and check their loot. The rarer the structure the more likely it is to contain it's relic

What does each relic do?

Fire stone: Will make you immune to fire damage however this stone hates water. It can be found in nether fortresses.

Water stone: Will allow to swim at astonishing speeds however this stone hates fire. It can be found in large ocean ruins.

Ice stone: Will make it easier to see and will frost over any grass you are standing
on however this stone also hates fire. It can be found in igloo basements

Rock stone: Makes you oh so strong oh yet so slow. It can be found in dungeons.

Cursed skull: Curses everything around it including you! [​can be used as a prank item]. It can be found in shipwreck treasure.

Desert relic: Gives you luck in life but unluck in hell. Can be found in desert temples.

Jungle tablet: Makes you speedy but decreases your max health while using it... like a jungle bandit. Can be found in Jungle pyramids.

Illager relic: Illagers have created a stone that allows them to float gently using VEX magic... no more splats or falls! however it doesn't seem to work in the nether... strange. This can be found in illager mansions

Void cube: Saves you from falling in the void and displays cool particles while doing so

it can be found in end cities

Trusty rusty - Gives you extra drops on stones (including ones from the nether)

you have a chance to receive from one to four items from it
