The "Shadow Lord" Item


Yeah, managing to reach about turn 30 makes things easier for the Shadow Lord relic to appear as a reward for completing a playthrough, the chances are better if you beat Gargos, also, in case is not mentioned before, you can get a lower tier of the relic on Godlike and Challenging mode if your score is not high enough (I once got a Epic tier of it during a failed Godlike run almost a year ago, and a Rare tier one on another failed run prior to the Epic one), but TBH, most of the time the Rare tier of the relic is more than enough and easier to get on higher difficulties.
