Glory was the name of a Constitution class starship that had come into the possession of a privateer named Deigo DeBlazio. Glory is the name DeBlazio gave the vessel upon taking possession of the ship, it is not known what the vessel's original name was.

At one time, the ship was part of the United Federation of Planets Starfleet. Eventually the ship was decommissioned. At the time, the Federation often sold decommissioned ships to private entities. Such vessels were stripped of their armaments and engines prior to being sold, and once sold were refitted as impulse powered merchant venssels. The Glory was one such vessel disposed of in this manner.

The ship eventually made its way into Romulan hands. The Romulans refitted the ship - which included the installation of a cloaking device, and gave it to Deigo DeBlazio so that the man could act as a cat's paw against Federation shipping. DeBlazio attacked a number of freighters, and even disabled a Starfleet cruiser.

DeBlazio's actions drew the attention of the USS Enterprise to the area. In an initial engagement, the Glory was able to stage a surprise attack on the Enterprise, but the Glory was no match for the Enterprise.

Eventually, DeBlazio figured out that the Romulans were going to betray him, and turned against them. The Glory assisted Jean-Luc Picard in battle against the Romulans, destroying a Romulan warbird in the process. He then headed for Romulan space, intending to harass their shipping network.

Glory is a company that produces several popular products. They can be bought at the Oh2-Hnzu stores in Old Mombasa[1]. It appears to be based on a present-day automotive company called Glory Car Hire, possibly meaning that their products are something to do with cars.[2]

An detailed image of an Amulet of glory

The Amulet of glory (or dragonstone amulet in RuneScape Classic) is a dragonstone amulet enchanted by the Magic spell Enchant Level 5 Jewellery. It is a very popular amulet in members-only worlds amongst lower leveled players, as it provides good Attack bonus, and the teleports it offers are very useful. A trimmed version, called Amulet of glory(t), may be obtained from Level 3 Treasure Trails.

The options for an equipped for the Amulet of Glory

Transportation

The Amulet of glory is useful when travelling in the Wilderness, as this amulet will work up to Level 30 Wilderness, while most other means of teleportation will not work above Level 20 Wilderness. Players can access the teleports by either rubbing it in their inventory and selecting their destination from the option box which appears, or they can right click it when equipped and select one of their destinations. This amulet has a maximum of four charges, and teleports are available to the following 4 locations:

All 4 teleport locations allow access to other transportation grids. From Edgeville, players may use the Canoe system to travel up and down River Lum, the Fairy ring system accessible to the east of Edgeville and using the underwall tunnel to the Grand Exchange (level 21 Agility required), access to the Spirit Tree network and the dwarfen carts. Karamja teleport puts the player close to the Charter ships system. Draynor Village is close to Port Sarim for transportation for boats, or the Fairy Ring to the south. Note that, to get even closer to transportation for boats, without wasting an amulet's charge, players may also use the teleport to cabbage patch option found in an Explorer's ring 3, a reward from the medium part of the Lumbridge and Draynor Achievement Diary. Al Kharid teleport is close to the Shantay Pass, allowing access to the Kharidian Desert, as well as the Gnome glider to the north.

On the 7th of October update, the Amulet of glory was updated to allow a person to teleport more effectively when the amulet is equipped. Originally, the Amulet had 3 options when equipped (Remove, Operate and Examine) but now has 6 options (Remove, Examine and 1 for each of the teleport spots). This significantly cuts down on teleport operation time.

Recharging

The message a player receives after recharging an Amulet of glory

After all four charges are used, it can be recharged by using it on the Fountain of Heroes below the Heroes' Guild. By doing so once, all carried Amulets of glory, including worn ones and ones with charges remaining, will be fully recharged to 4 charges. Access to the Heroes' Guild, however, requires the completion of Heroes' Quest. This amulet may not be charged in noted form. To quickly recharge the amulets, it is recommended that a Games necklace is used to teleport to Burthorpe Games Room, which is close to the Heroes' Guild.

At level 89 Summoning, a Geyser titan can be used to recharge Amulets of glory by using them on the familiar. This negates the need to travel to the Heroes' Guild fountain.

Other uses

If the Amulet of glory has any charges, wearing it while Mining will increase the chances of finding gems. Wearing it when mining the Shilo Village gem rocks will also increase the speed at which gems are mined.

At level 47 Construction, the Amulet of glory can be mounted in a Player-owned house, within the Quest Hall. This will require an uncharged Amulet of glory, and 3 Teak planks. While mounted, this amulet can be used to provide unlimited teleports. It is possible to use boosts for this, such as the Crystal saw. Mounting the Amulet of glory in a Player-owned house does not require the completion of Heroes' Quest.

Amulets of glory are beneficial while fishing on Karamja. A player can teleport back and forth from the Karamja fishing spot and the Edgeville bank with minimal walking. However, most would prefer to fish at Catherby as it is closer to a bank and does not require the use of an amulet.

Amulets of glory are also useful for Runecrafting through the Abyss, granting a fast way to return to Edgeville. In addition to that, the amulets can be used for runecrafting Law runes by taking the boat to Entrana, then teleporting to Draynor Village to bank the runes.

Amulets of Glory are useful for farming. With the allotment patch west of the Ectofuntus, one can teleport to the patch with the Ectophial and teleport to a bank with the Amulet of Glory. With the allotment patch north-west of Draynor, one can teleport to the patch with the Explorer's Ring 3 and teleport to the Edgeville bank with the Amulet of Glory.

Amulets of glory are also useful for Mining. If used in conjunction with a skills necklace, this can allow quick transport to and from the mining guild and the Edgeville bank.

Trivia

  • Sometimes when attempting to buy Amulets Of Glory from the Grand Exchange, the icon shown in the window is that of a diamond Amulet rather than an Amulet Of Glory, this glitch has not yet been fixed.
  • Because of the fact that the Glory teleports to spots that are accessible by Free-to-Play as well, posters on the forums have been speculating whether the Amulet of Glory will be released to F2P afterwards.
