The Law talisman is an item that allows players to enter the law altar located in the northeast corner of Entrana. It can be combined with a tiara to make a law tiara for 47.5 experience at the law altar by using the tiara on the altar. This will make the talisman disappear, but the tiara can be used in just the same way and can be worn. Both the tiara and the talisman allow players to use the Runecrafting skill.
The Law talisman can be obtained as drops from various monsters including Abyssal creatures, Guards, Terrorbirds, Tortoises, Ghouls, and Paladins.
The Law talisman was originally a reward for completing the Troll Stronghold quest, which was required in order to craft law runes, was not tradeable and instead of a drop option, it had a destroy option. On 7 May 2008 Jagex issued an update for the law talisman, they stated the law talisman was not a good enough reward for such a difficult quest, and replaced the talisman reward with two Experience lamps, which give 10,000 experience each into any skill over level 30. They also made the talisman tradeable for Members, and removed the quest requirement in order to craft law runes. The initial price was 1500 coins. The talisman can now be obtained as a drop from the monsters mentioned above, traded from another player, or purchased on the Grand Exchange; allowing a much larger number of players to enter law altar to craft law runes or law run.
As of 25 February 2009, as stated in the patch notes, the image for the Law talisman and the Body talisman has been improved to emphasise their differences.
The law altar is located at the law rune icon.
