Hand of glory (Infernal Source) detail.png

A hand of glory is an item obtained while excavating with the Archaeology skill.

There are four dig site specific hands of glory that are discoverable as players meet new level requirements.

Only one of each relic may be created by adding a luck ring to a hand of glory. This process cannot be reversed, and the ring will be consumed in doing so. Any of the four types of luck ring can be added to any of the hands of glory, however, they must be created in order of low to high luck tier. Players must use Ring of Luck first, then Ring of Wealth, then Ring of Fortune, and lastly Luck of the Dwarves. Players may not skip straight to tier 4 relic on the first Hand of Glory.

Using the luck ring specific hand of glory at the mysterious monolith at the Archaeology Guild unlocks the relic power associated with that ring.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A hand of glory is a dried and pickled left hand of a hanged felon, cut off while he was still on the gibbet. The hand was used as a magic charm and said to send the occupants of a house into a deep slumber, while the wielder of the hand burgled them.
  • Each hand of glory gets the ring on a different finger. Curiously the ring finger is never used. This might be a wink from Jagex to say that with this relic your ring finger will be free to wear a non-luck ring.
  • The examine texts: "If you like it, then you should put a ring on..." is a reference to the song Single Ladies by Beyoncé.
