These fossils and their rarer Relic forms serve a new purpose of providing specific boosts to Crabs in battle. This adds to the diversity in the trading ecosystem and the rare Relic Fossils will be highly coveted by everyone keen to advance their standing in battle and arenas.

Big Battle, Bigger Prizes

Customizing and trading among players will not only keep the ecosystem active, it will also significantly boost the crabs’ market value. As they mutate or get newly grafted parts, these hard-shelled fighters also gain experience points and level up. This will raise their battle stats and give them a starting edge in the fights to come.

Mutations, Xenografts, and the necessary trading will allow players to better prepare their hard-shelled fighters to come out on top and take the biggest share of these ETH prize-pools.
