The penance blood essence is one of the blood essences players can craft after the quest River of Blood. Using Haemalchemy, players can combine 100 congealed blood with a 4-dose Super Guthix rest potion; doing so requires at least 100 vyre corpses to be cremated in the Columbarium. When received as a one-time gift from Vanescula Drakan after the quest or created manually, it will have 1,000 charges. Additional charges can be added by using more congealed blood on the essence, giving 10 charges each, to a maximum of 5,000 charges. If charges are completely exhausted, the essence's effects no longer function, but it can still be worn.

When worn, it has a passive effect that has a chance of increasing damage taken by 8%, by a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 100 extra damage and restoring prayer points equal to 25% of the extra damage taken. When activated, the next hit taken within 20 seconds is increased by 80% by a minimum of 200 and a maximum of 1000 and restoring prayer points equal to 25% of the extra damage taken.

The active effect can be used once per minute. This cooldown is shared with other blood essences, except the tireless essence. Each passive effect consumes 1 charge and each active effect consumes 50 charges.

Having a blood essence equipped and attempting to enter the Mausoleum notifies the player "You have a blood essence equipped which makes the ravenous ghouls aggressive. Are you sure you wish to proceed?"

According to the book Haemalchemy (Vol. 2), this blood essence is described as:

This essence will force a controlled amount of your blood cells and anti-bodies to prematurely die off in a sacrifice to greater powers.
