Holy symbol detail.png

A holy symbol is a piece of silver jewellery blessed by the power of Saradomin.

It can be created at level 16 Crafting by casting a silver bar in a furnace with a holy mould to produce an unstrung symbol. It must then be strung with a ball of wool which turns it into an unblessed symbol, one at a time, granting a total of 4 Crafting experience. It must then be blessed, either by asking Brother Jered on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the Monastery of Saradomin in Edgeville, which requires level 31 Prayer to access the upper floor, or by using a book of wisdom or book of balance on the symbol, which requires level 50 Prayer and costs 40 Prayer points per blessing.

A holy symbol is used to make a blessed hatchet during the Animal Magnetism quest. Additionally, it can be used in conjunction with the Prayer book obtained during The Great Brain Robbery quest to cure the effects of any poison.

If fighting a vampyre or Feral vampyre while wearing one, the Vampyre will receive a pair of debuffs that lower its Attack and Defence stats by 25%.

Wearing a holy symbol in the God Wars Dungeon will prevent attack by Saradomin-aligned creatures.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Brother Brace on Tutorial Island seems to be wearing a golden holy symbol, along with Brother Jered and other monks in the Edgeville Monastery. However, this is just a design which is part of the monk's robe.
  • The holy symbol used to be silver, like its inventory icon, but has been changed to a golden colour when worn.
  • The Monk of Zamorak will not speak to any player wearing a holy symbol.
