There are 13 Artifacts of Legend placed throughout the world. Each contains a piece of the mysterious history of the land. Doviculus has attempted to suppress the truth by chaining them up, however breaking the chains is simply a matter of using your Earthshaker combo. After shattering their chains, interact with them to hear the tale of the Tainted Coil, the Titans, the Fire Beast, and more. These are actually quite interesting and creative, using a still-cutscene system with narration to deliver the story to you.
