The Illuminated Book of Chaos can be created after finishing One Piercing Note. To make this book, use a Zamorak's Book of Chaos on the book-making table in the Scriptorium of the Citharede Abbey (located east of Al Kharid) and complete all the steps to make the illuminated version and unlock the illuminated god book override.

To create an Illuminated Book of Chaos, players must correctly follow the procedure that is used to copy books. Steps must be performed in order; otherwise, the copy is ruined, and players must begin again. The steps are:

  1. Copy text
  2. Embellish capitals
  3. Add colour
  4. Add gold leaf

Each step of the process consumes between 200 and 250 prayer points. There is a nearby altar in the Abbey that can be used to recharge Prayer if necessary. Attempting a step with less than 200 prayer points will reset your progress and force you to start over.

Completing the illuminated book awards players with 10,000 Crafting experience and 10,000 Prayer experience (first time only). The Illuminated Book of Chaos has better stats than Zamorak's Book of Chaos in all applicable categories.

The illuminated book of chaos has improved stats from the original book, but requires completion of One Piercing Note. If lost, it can be reclaimed from a player-owned house bookcase for 120,000 coins. However, the book will lose all its remaining charges, requiring the player to add additional pages in order to activate the passive effect.

Passive[edit | edit source]

Zamorak's Book of Chaos passive

The book of chaos can be activated like a scrimshaw to provide a passive combat effect. The book can be recharged with any Zamorak page, giving 45 minutes of active time per page. This is shared, unchanged, with the original book. 3 hours is the maximum amount of time that the book can be charged for; giving it a recharge of 4 total pages from 0 to 100%.

The passive effect has a 5% chance per hit to activate. When it activates, a dark explosion hits the target and the surrounding targets in a 3x3 area for 150-250% damage (split over all targets) (PvP: 50-150%). Based on K'ril Tsutsaroth's 'YARRR' attack.
