The Blood of the Ancients relic in Borderlands 2 is an experimental tech created by the Eridians, one of the manufacturers in the game. This relic is a mix of two different relics, meaning it has two different perks, making it one of the best relics in the entirety of Borderlands 2.

Below are the main bonuses you get with Blood of the Ancients:

  • Increases your maximum health.
  • Increases the maximum ammo of two weapon types.

Blood of the Ancinets can be extremely useful during raids where you need tons of health and ammo, this is why we recommend having this Relic with the Gunzerker class.

  • Blood of the Ancients has a 12.5% chance drop rate on the Loot Midgets.

An efficient way to farm the Legendary Loot Midget is to do the mission “Doctor’s Orders” which is given by Patricia Tannis, in Sanctuary.
In this optional mission, when opening the boxes in the same room as the second ECHO, multiple Loot Midgets will spawn. No not pick the ECHO, get rid of the Loot Midgets then save, quit and repeat until you get the Blood of the Ancients relic.
