What are "Relics"?
I came back from a long time without playing, I see they changed the selection of the mission, they removed void missions (to fissures, WHAT?) and others. But when I go to recruiting chat (now of course there are no H T1-4 sadly D:) I see Relic sharing? What's this? How do you obtain it?

e.g "H Axi G1 Relic Radiant Share"...?

All of your keys have become void relics with various names before them (there are four tiers of relics like there were keys), you'll see that your relics now contain a certain set of items with them listing the drop chances for that specific item while some items in that relic being more common than others. To start being able to farm for these relics you can do various endless mission types like defense, interception, survival, etc. Then to be able to upgrade your relics you will need to do the Mars junction for the segment and getting the needed amount of void traces to upgrade said relic. Check http://warframed.com/ on where to farm certain relics for whatever prime you're going after.

Void fissure missions spawn every so often and there are always some available to do, doing a void fissure mission will add onto the current missions objective and you will have to kill corrupted enemies (which normal enemies and such will become corrupted during the missions span) that drop these reactants to be able to seal the fissure. Get 10 of these then you seal the fissure and get void traces, however if you just want to farm for void traces then just go into a fissure mission without a relic equipped (you won't be able to select the rewards at the end, but you'll get your traces still). Though be careful since if you don't collect 10 and you do use a relic then you will not get your reward, so be wary of groups who do rush the mission and not leave time for people to pick up their necessary 10.

Now, as to farming items within those relics then you'll want to find a group of the same type of relic and quality (preferred) so you can get the best chances out of it with the highest relic quality being radiant. You can now see who has what relic equipped beforehand and makes it so people who try to leech off of radiant runs won't really be able to do so anymore. This new system allows you to get the stuff you want alot faster than compared to the old one where you would just farm on the same mission type and map to rarely have a chance to get the thing you wanted unless you did tons of runs to do so

Relics are, for all intents and purposes, goodie packages containing pieces for Prime weapons and their blueprints, blueprints for Prime frame parts, Forma blueprints, things like that. Typically acquired through Excavation missions and through special Caches. Also can be bought as a pack of 3 through Syndicates (I am sure there are other ways, but I'm not even 50 days in and only MR7 so my experience is limited).

You need to collect void traces to crack them open, which are what the Fissure maps are. You need 10 in a match. All relics start as Intact quality, but each can be improved (ONLY ONCE) to 3 higher levels of quality; each improvement raises the chances that you will get one of the lower chanced items in that relic. To improve them, you spend extra traces you acquire through doing the Fissure maps (you have to collect 10 glowing trace orbs, but once you do, you earn a certain amount of raw traces).

Do them in full parties. With a 4 man team, at the end of a Fissure map, everyone who has 10 traces collected will have 1 item from their relic selected once you all get to extraction, so you will have 4 to choose from; what it selected from your relic plus your three mates.

Typically people looking for a certain item will look to form teams where everyone takes the same relic at the same quality level, in an attempt to increase the chance for a specific item.

Relics have replaced void keys. Fissures are holes in the void that open at random places to their corresponding level. ( T1 - T4 ) You get 1 Prime part for each relic opened. When all four of your team mates open their relics you choose 1 from the 4 different prime parts. You only get to keep 1. After completing the mission you get 6-30 void traces. You use the void traces to refine relics and increse your chances of getting rare prime parts when you open them. During a fissure mission fissures will open at random places teleporting corrupted enimies in and corrupting all nearby enemies and buffing their stats. Corrupted enemies drop void reactent sometimes. When you get 10 your relic will be opened and either your warframe, primeary weaopn, secondary, or melee will get buffed. You choose your prime part after the mission is over. You cannot pick a prime part if you do not bring a relic. A radiant share is when all 4 squad members refine their relic to radiant to maximize the chances of getting the prime part you want. There are 4 different relic teirs. Lith-T1 Meso-T2 Neo-T3 Axi-T4. Each type of relic (e.g G1) drops different prime parts. Also instead of prime parts getting vaulted the relic gets vaulted not the prime part. So if you can still farm that prime part until you run out of that relic even after it is vaulted.

All right, seems a little bit more complicated :P thanks a lot!

It actually makes a lot of sense after you start playing Fissure missions. It's something that's a lot easier when you just look at it and do it; explaining it in words only makes it sound more complicated.
