Pontifex signet ring detail.png

A pontifex signet ring is a Zarosian artefact which is made by restoring the damaged variant at an archaeologist's workbench after the damaged variant is excavated from the Carcerem debris excavation hotspot at the Kharid-et Dig Site with level 58 Archaeology.

The artefact can be worn, carried in the player's inventory, or added to the tool belt to allow the player to pass through the barrier of the Kharid-et Dig Site chapel giving access to the altar and the two shadow anchors. With a pontifex signet ring, and a legatus pendant, the player is able to walk through the maximum security barrier in the The Vault of Shadows, just north of the entrance from the prison block. Behind the maximum security barrier, players can talk to the strange device.

Completion of Azzanadra's Quest allows the player to upgrade the ring to a pontifex observation ring which provides multiple skilling bonuses.
