Were you looking for items that fit in special Artifact Weapon sockets called Artifact relics or Artifact relic slots?

Relic refers to a type of equipment that was worn in the now removed relic equipment slot by death knights, druids, paladins and shamans (for other classes the slot was for ranged weapons). Relics were added in Patch 1.10.0. Relics usually give bonuses to a specific spell or ability. The relic slot replaced the ranged weapon for these classes. Formerly Warlocks equipped Spellstones and Firestones in the same way (though in the ranged weapon slot as they can use wands) but they were changed to temporary enchantment items in patch 3.0.2.

There were four different types of relics, each specific to a class:

As of 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, any relic-using class can use any relic (although they may not benefit as much depending on the stats).

In Mists of Pandaria Edit

0500Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

Relics along with ranged weapons in their own equipment slot were removed in the 0500Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria expansion as announced at BlizzCon 2011.

In Cataclysm Edit

0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.

In Cataclysm the relic system is simplified. Instead of four different types of relics, each one only usable by one class, all relics were usable by any class capable of using a relic.

While the items may contain the words Idol, Libram, Totem, or Sigil in their name, they will not be sub-categorized as them.
