Default What is your favourite TR artifact?

My favourite artifact(s) has to be the obscura paintings, because I felt that using paintings as an artifact was quite original in the adventure genre, which is plagued with magical daggers and swords. I was quite disappointed when they were mostly powerless. Thor's Hammer from the Underworld is a close second.

Top 3:

1) TR3's meteorite shards. I love looking at them in Lara's inventory. I don't like The Lost Artifact's 5th artifact, but it doesn't quite matter.

2) TLR's Amulet of Horus. Simple, yet pretty, and its removal triggers the apocalypse. Classic.

3) TR2's Dagger of Xian. Pointy. Pierces the enemy's heart. And it's retrieved from the enemy's heart. Full circle (?)

The Scion, both versions.
Something about the idea of all 3 coming together to unleash it's full power. And having each piece in a different part of the world did wonders for the feeling of progression as you hunt for each one.

Unlike 2 which kind of feels like a wild goose chase for something that probably could have been booted open.

The ultimate payoff for getting all the meteor artifacts in 3 fell kind of flat for me. I feel like they could have done something a little better if they weren't rushing.
