Holy book: Misc

A Holy book is a book held in place of a shield, and is the God book aligned with Saradomin. For information on how to acquire a God book, see the God books article. With a holy book, a player can preach and perform ceremonies, such as blessing, last rites, and wedding rites by operating it. Also, if a player's Prayer level is 50 or higher, they can bless Holy symbols with a holy book by expending 4 Prayer points for each symbol. If you lose this item you can reclaim it at the lighthouse for no cost by speaking to Jossik.

When reading blessings, wedding ceremonies, last rites, or preaches, you expend 25% of your special attack energy.

The Holy Book enhances a wielder's defensive stats, while providing no offensive bonuses. That makes it somewhat of a bad choice for melee combat, as most shields provide better defence. It is a better choice for rangers or mages, as it provides no negative bonuses. 

Filling the Holy book with all pages currently costs 178,400 coins.

The Holy Book has the following features:

  • Partnerships: In the name of Saradomin, protector of us all, I now join you in the eyes of Saradomin.
  • Last Rites: Thy cause was false; thy skills did lack, see you in Lumbridge when you get back.
  • Blessings: Go in peace in the name of Saradomin, may his glory shine upon you like the sun.
  • Preach: There are five different preaches, and the player may say any of them; the possibilities are:
    • "Walk proud and show mercy, for you carry my name in your heart, this is Saradomin's wisdom."
    • "Show love to your friends, and mercy to your enemies, and know that the wisdom of Saradomin will follow. This is Saradomin's wisdom."
    • "Protect yourself, protect your friends; Mine is the glory that never ends. This is Saradomin's Wisdom."
    • "The currency of goodness is honour; It retains its value through scarcity. This is Saradomin's Wisdom."
    • "The darkness in life may be avoided, Through the light of wisdom shining. This is Saradomin's Wisdom."
