Essence of Finality amulet detail.png

The Essence of Finality amulet is a degradable alchemical hydrix necklace released on 18 August 2020 along with the Brooch of the Gods. It is made by combining an alchemical hydrix with a fully-charged amulet of souls and reaper necklace, which requires level 99 Crafting and cannot be assisted. It is the second best-in-slot neckwear for PvM situations, with the ornamental version being the first. It provides +56 damage in all styles, +7 prayer bonus, and is a hybrid-class item. The amulet has the combined effects of both the amulet of souls and reaper necklace. Additionally, the amulet has a special ability to store the special attack from any weapon in the game (provided that the player meets the requirements to wield said weapon), which can then be harnessed using the Essence of Finality ability unlimited times during combat, without degrading the amulet.

A soul ornament kit and a reaper ornament kit can be combined to create an Essence of Finality ornament kit. This may be attached to an Essence of Finality amulet to create an Essence of Finality amulet (or). This alters the item's appearance and increases the damage bonus by +3. A player can remove the ornament at any time, after which they may sell the kit again.

The amulet can be dyed to aid distinguishing it from other Essence of Finality amulets that may contain other special attacks. It can be dyed with red dye, blue dye, yellow dye, green dye, purple dye, pink dye, or black mushroom ink to make the red, blue, yellow, green, purple, pink, or black amulets, respectively. The dyes can be changed at any time, or reverted back to the base orange amulet with a cleaning cloth. Changing dye or ornament state does not affect degradation state.

Upon death in the Wilderness, players carrying the Essence of Finality amulet will drop 1,000,000 coins instead.

The amulet is crafted by using the alchemical hydrix on one of the other ingredients.

Players who own an amulet of souls and/or reaper necklace can simply repair those necklaces using onyxes and then purchase the alchemical hydrix and combine them to create the amulet. This requires level 99 Crafting (or 92 utilising boosts) and cannot be assisted. Once worn, it is no longer able to be traded even if fully repaired.

Dyeing and ornamentation[edit source]

An Essence of Finality amulet can be dyed with a basic dye (red, blue, yellow, green, or purple dye, the quest-required pink dye, or black mushroom ink) to change the colour of the amulet. Colouring an amulet retains all benefits, current charges, and the stored special attack of the amulet. The benefit of doing this (other than the cosmetic effect) is to help distinguish multiple amulets and to ensure bank presets and action bars act consistently. Any dyed amulet can be returned to an undyed, orange amulet using a cleaning cloth.

An Essence of Finality amulet (of any colour) can have a Essence of finality ornament kit applied to it to increase the damage bonuses from +56.0 to +59.0. This retains all of the other benefits and preserves the current charges and stored special attack of the amulet. The ornament kit can be removed at any time to revert the amulet, which will return the kit (the kit can then be traded as normal). Ornamental Essence of Finality amulets can also be dyed, as above.

Degradation and repair[edit source]

The Essence of Finality amulet has 100,000 charges of combat, and degrades to a broken state. Using the special attack does not consume any amulet charges. The amulet can be repaired by 50% using 1 alchemical hydrix dust (made by crushing an alchemical hydrix, giving 10 dust per alchemical hydrix). A full recharge thus costs 32,556,014 coins.

Passive effect[edit source]

The Essence of Finality amulet has the passive effects of the amulet of souls and the reaper necklace combined:

  • Successful hits give a 0.1% hit chance boost in all styles for 54 seconds, stacking up to 30 times (a total 3% hit chance increase). Missed hits do not count towards stacks.
    • Taking the necklace off or switching it for another item will cause the hit chance buff to disappear, but switching to another Essence of Finality amulet will retain these stacks.
  • Soul Split has a 50% chance to heal 25-50% more (an average of 18.75% more healing).
  • The base damage reduction of Protection prayers and Deflection curses is increased by 10% (giving them 60% damage reduction).

Special attack[edit source]

The Essence of Finality amulet can store a special attack of any weapon within itself, which can be used unlimited times during combat by harnessing the Essence of Finality ability. The special attack does not consume any amulet charges.

  • Players need to permanently sacrifice a weapon to store its special attack within the amulet.
    • Augmented weapons can be used, but the perks won't carry over. (Equipment separators can be used to salvage expensive perk gizmos.)
    • Special attack weapons don't need to be fully charged to be sacrificed. This even applies to degrade-to-dust weapons like the Statius's warhammer or Augmented superior statius's warhammer.
    • Any special attack can be stored and replaced with a new special attack, but the previous weapon will not be returned.
  • The damage and accuracy of the special attack are based on the player's current weapon(s), not the weapon sacrificed.
  • The same style has to be used, e.g., Ranged special attacks only work while wielding ranged weapons.
  • The player can own multiple amulets with multiple special attacks stored within them. Dying the amulets can help with distinguishing multiple amulets with different special attacks, and ensure bank presets and action bars function in a consistent way.
  • If the player swaps an Essence of Finality amulet to a different one, the stacks/benefits provided from the initial special effect are not lost.
  • If the player swaps an Essence of Finality amulet with any other type of amulet, the stacks/benefits are lost.

Benefits[edit source]

The benefits to using the amulet's special attack rather than using a weapon switch for PvM are:

  • Provides unlimited uses of degrade-to-dust weapons like the Statius's warhammer
  • Can be triggered without switching to a weapon and back (1 keystroke instead of 3)
  • Allows use of powerful special attacks formerly bound to outclassed weapons as the damage of the spec is based on whatever tier of weapon you are wearing instead of what special is in the EoF.
  • Saves an inventory slot

Drawbacks[edit source]

The drawbacks for using the amulet's special attack rather than using a weapon switch are:

  • Weapons consumed by the amulet are permanently lost, making the special attacks of certain weapons such as the Statius's warhammer or the Seren godbow expensive to use with the amulet
  • Players wishing to change the special attack stored within the amulet are required to consume another weapon, losing the existing one in the process
  • The amulet's special attack cannot be used against other players in a PvP scenario

Recommended weapons[edit source]

The following are weapons that are recommended to be used with the Essence of Finality amulet. For a list of all special attack weapons in the game, see Weapon Special attack.

Please note that the special attack can only be used while wielding a weapon of the same style. For example, the Statius's warhammer's special attack, Smash, can only be used while wielding melee-classed weapons, and the Seren godbow's special attack, Crystal Rain, can only be used while wielding ranged weapons.

Ranged.png

The following stored special attacks can only be used while wielding a ranged weapon.

The damage dealt scales with the currently wielded weapon, so the Dark bow special will deal 296-676% ability damage of the currently wielded tier-90 or tier-92 weapon.

Attack.png

The following stored special attacks can only be used while wielding a melee weapon.

The damage dealt scales with the currently wielded weapon, so the Saradomin godsword special will deal 75-275% ability damage of the currently wielded tier-90 or tier-92 weapon and will heal for 50% of that value.

Magic.png

The following stored special attacks can only be used while wielding a magic weapon.

The damage dealt scales with the currently wielded weapon, so the Guthix staff special will deal 140%-300% ability damage of the currently wielded tier-90 or tier-92 weapon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The news post mentions that the amulet could be recharged "with faith, trust and a little Alchemical Hydrix dust." This is a reference to the quote "faith, trust, and pixie dust" from the Disney animated film Peter Pan.
  • It was initially announced that 5 alchemical hydrix dust would be required to fully repair the amulet, but Mod Timbo confirmed on Twitter that this has been changed due to the player feedback.[1]
