This guide is less about the locations of Chester and the 8 "useless relics" and more about some general guidelines.

-You do not need to find Chester and make the trade in the level. I made one of the trades at the Armor Outpost as I had found the relic at Propeller Knight's level but not Chester. To do this you will need 50 Cipher Coins to repair/use the catapult at the Armor Outpost to get inside the city.

-The chests with the relics are always behind some sort of secret wall and require some decent platforming to reach. After finding the relic, there is usual a cauldron cannon to return you to the main level or a simple path back. Finish the level following this/find Chester in the level and trade the item.

NOTE: As experienced by Vonrusther (October 6, 2015) this may be missable. Still waiting for confirmation, but buying the relic from Chester rather than trading could cause this achievement to be missed. When going through this originally, I traded each time and never went for a purchase.
