Artifacts – Castle Blackthorn

Wiki > Ultima Online Wiki > Items > Artifact Collections > Artifacts - Castle Blackthorn


Blackthorn Artifacts are obtained by trading in Minax Artifacts with an Agent of the Crown who can be found in each Loyalty City.


Minax artifacts were initially gained by killing town invaders (Act 2 Revenge of the Enchantress story arc, 2013) and can now be obtained from all areas of Castle Blackthorn Dungeon.
The artifacts consist of some decorative items and armor/clothing item groups, each item has the description ‘Bearing the Crest of Blackthorn’; each clothing/armor artifact occupies a particular armor or clothing ‘slot’ and is available in several styles. Choose the style that best fits your character. The items are based on, and have the same properties as, previously spawning items.
