A detailed view of a holy symbol

A Holy symbol is a silver symbol blessed to imbue it with the sacred power of Saradomin.

Players can make holy symbols indirectly through the Crafting skill.

A player must first use a silver bar with a furnace while they have a holy mould in their inventory. This requires a Crafting level of 16 or higher. This will give the player an unstrung symbol and they will receive 50 crafting experience. Then the player must string the symbol with a ball of wool, giving the player 4 crafting experience and making the unstrung holy symbol into an unblessed symbol. Then the symbol must be blessed by Brother Jered on the second floor of the Monastery (which requires level 31 Prayer) or, for members, by using a Holy book or Book of balance with it. To bless the symbol using one of the books, a player must have a Prayer level of 50 or higher. Blessing uses up 4 prayer points.

A holy symbol gives the highest prayer bonus of any item for free players.

If fighting a vampire while wearing one, the vampire will be weakened. Davon in Brimhaven will buy blessed holy symbols, paying 225 coins for the first.

The Monk of Zamorak will not speak to any player wearing a Holy Symbol.

It can also be used in conjunction with the Prayer book obtained during The Great Brain Robbery quest to cure the effects of any poison.

Once blessed, the unblessed holy symbol becomes simply a holy symbol, and provides the bonuses below.
