A player using Tarn's Diary to enchant the Salve Amulet.

The Salve amulet (e) is an enchanted Salve amulet. It raises the wearer's attack and strength by 20% while fighting undead monsters such as Zombies, Ankou, and Aberrant spectres. It is useful for training combat in the fourth level of the Stronghold of Security because of the many undead there. It has been confirmed that it does not give any effect against the six Barrows brothers.

The enchanted amulet can be made during and after The Lair of Tarn Razorlor miniquest. After defeating Tarn Razorlor, Tarn's diary can be found on a table in the next room. Using the diary with a salve amulet creates the enchanted amulet. It is possible to enchant more than one, if you have multiple salve amulets. Once the miniquest is finished, the diary can also be found in a bookcase of a Player-owned house.

For people going for level 99 Attack, Strength and Defence by killing the Armoured zombies, this amulet is very useful.

For players on undead Slayer assignments, the boosts of a salve amulet do not stack with the effects of a Black mask or Slayer helmet. Only the larger boost will be effective.

Salve amulet (e) vs. Amulet of fury

The Amulet of fury is considered by many player as one of the very best combat amulets in the game against the undead. Notice that while the Salve amulet (e) gives a very high bonus to levels, it cannot easily be compared to the Fury Amulet, since one attack level boost isn't equal to one attack point boost. However, it is safe to assume that Salve Amulet is more effective for fighting the undead, as a +5 max hit increase has a greater effect than a +5 strength bonus.

The Salve amulet (e), however, only gives a +3 bonus to melee-related defence and a +3 bonus to prayer, while the Amulet of fury gives +15 bonuses to melee, ranged, magic, and summoning defence, along with 5 prayer bonus.

Notice how the Salve amulet (e) does not increase defence much. If defence is a concern, however, then the Amulet of fury may allow the player to stay in action against the undead longer.

When a player is using protection prayers against the undead (such as against Aberrant spectres), the slightly large defence bonus of the Amulet of fury is not particularly significant, making the Salve amulet (e) preferable for player for most of the players.

For slayer assignments against undead, however, if the player can use a Black mask or Slayer Helmet, then the Amulet of Fury is always preferable, since this amulet's bonuses stack with the mask's or helmet's bonuses, while the Salve amulet (e)'s attack and strength bonuses do not.

Undead monsters

The salve amulet / salve amulet (e) is effective against the following undead creatures.

With Void Robes (melee helm)

It appears as though the bonus given by Void robes with a melee helm, (which offer the same type of bonus as a Salve Amulet, but only 10%) stacks with the Salve amulet (e), and presumably the unenhanced version as well. It is unknown as to whether the bonuses stack additively or multiplicatively, as in 30% (10%+20%=30%) or 32% (110%*120%-100%=32%) respectively. This means that using both Void robes and a Salve (e) amulet make fighting undead even easier, and with high defence levels or a good shield, which offsets the low defence of Void, can become a viable method of training melee, particularly at certain monsters such as ankous which are popular for training on for some people.
