The desert pantheon aura is an aura that was available with the 2016–2017 Premier Club. The aura became unusable after 31 December 2017[1], however, users who purchased Premier membership after 31 December 2016 were able to continue using the aura until the last day of their Premier membership (i.e., sometime in January 2017). During 2017, losing membership status, regardless of whether or not it was regained, would also result in the aura becoming unusable. Upon attempting to use the aura in its unusable state, the player received a game message that read, "You no longer hold the power to commune with the Desert Pantheon Gods."

As of 24 February 2020, the aura was made re-obtainable for players who did not already have it by combining 2,000 desert pantheon fragments. 50 fragments can be earned each time all the objectives in a Shifting Tomb are completed. The aura can be crafted by combining the fragments. Alternatively, it can be purchased with 2 bonds. For those players who had the 2016-2017 Premier Club the aura is reclaimable for free via the Loyalty Programme Shop in-game.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The aura generates 250 charges each day and stores a maximum of 500 charges. The pantheon aura does not recharge until the player logs out and back in or switches worlds. These charges can be spent on a variety of different effects. These effects can be chosen by right-clicking the aura in the inventory (or clicking it while it is equipped) and choosing the "Commune" option, which opens the following interface.

Other auras can be active at the same time the pantheon aura's effect is, with the exception of Wisdom of Scabaras.

Name Charges Effect
Feast of Amascut 125 +10% reputation gained within Menaphos for 1 hour.

Receiving the effect prompts the message Your communion with Amascut was successful.

Strength of Het 50 Maximum life points are increased by 20% (to a maximum of 1,000 extra) for 1 hour. This gives the "Life Points Boosted" buff.

Receiving the effect prompts the message Your communion with Het was successful and you receive 20% increased health for the next hour.

Wisdom of Scabaras 200 An additional 10% experience is gained for one hour

Unlike other communions, players must wear the aura and not remove to maintain boost. Does not work during double experience weekends.

Receiving the effect prompts the message Your communion with Scabaras was successful and you receive a 10% XP boost for an hour.

Bounty of Crondis 150 Divine location gathering limit is increased by 100%. This can only be used once per day and does not stack with vis wax boost. This makes 150 charges equivalent to the cost of using 40 vis wax.

Receiving the effect prompts the message Your communion with Crondis was successful. Your divine location gathering limit has been fully extended.

Joy of Apmeken 100 The user and all players nearby gain the 10% pulse core effect for 10 minutes (duration refreshed if repeated by the user or another nearby).

Receiving the effect prompts the message A communion to Apmeken has taken place. You feel enlightened and gain XP boost for the next 10 minutes and your [random category] are [boosted/healed/restored].

Wisdom of Scabaras requires the desert pantheon aura to be equipped. Additionally, unequipping the aura cancels the effect. Wisdom of Scabaras cannot be used during double experience weekends; attempting to commune with Scabaras during a double XP weekend generates a chatbox message reading "Double XP is already active, you don't need to activate this aura."

Prior to the release of Menaphos, Amascut's benefit was unusable, as in her absence from Menaphos her power had been "dissipated" from the aura. Amascut's effect was released along with Menaphos on 5 June 2017, but was not usable until 12 June 2017. It is not found in the Aura management interface and is instead an item that is equipped in the aura slot.

Re-release changes[edit | edit source]

Upon re-release on 24 February 2020, the following option was removed from the aura.

Name Charges Effect
Ward of Icthlarin 125 2 sign of life effects, to be used within an hour

Hardcore ironmen could not use this effect.

Receiving the effect prompts the message Your communion with Icthlarin was successful and you will receive 2 free Sign of Life effects in the next hour.
