Upon reaching each charge they offer their power effect spell/ability to the character. Relics can charge up power 9.  Relics cannot be made.

Relics are Account Bound once equipped, so any of you characters can use them. Relics do have minimal Level requirements. Characters can only have a max of 3 relics equipped at any given time. Once a Relic is equipped it will fill up the icons slots On the UI.

Q) How do Relic charges work?

A Relic charges build up during battles, and deplete when a battle is over. If a character is equipped with a Relic, they will see in the UI screen above their spells and abilities a Relic Casting Icon. This Icon shows the Current Charge Reached and the power level collected to reach the next charge. Clicking this ICON, use the Relic to cast its effect at the current charge. Higher Charges take longer to buildup, but also multiplies the effect. Depending on characters your level and the level of the foes you are combating, the relics charge buildup in power faster or slower. Weaker and lower level monster provide less charge power, where stronger higher-level monsters provide more charge power. In general the first Relic charge is easy to reach in 60-120 seconds. All other charges take much more time. See chart:
