Scripture of Bik detail.png

The Scripture of Bik is a god book obtainable as a drop from the Croesus Front in the Elder God Wars Dungeon. It is dropped as an unusable, tradeable 'token' that can be interacted with to unlock the untradeable, usable item.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

Scripture of Bik can be activated like scrimshaws to provide a passive effect for non-combat skill training. The book can be recharged with Manuscripts of Bik, giving 45 minutes of active time per page.

When active, the book provides the Nature's Veil effect: when using non-combat skills, a catalyst of alteration has a 15% chance to spawn nearby once per minute on the first eligible experience drop (accompanied by a sound and notification). The catalyst can be captured to obtain 1-3 sealed clue scrolls of a single type. These clues will be deposited straight to your bank unless you have Charos' clue carrier in your inventory, in which case they will be deposited straight into the clue carrier. Upon capture, the player receives a 5% XP boost for 1 minute.

Despite the tooltip description, there are a number of non-combat skilling activities that cannot spawn catalysts (such as restoring statues at Croesus), as well as a number of combat activities that can spawn catalysts.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

  • Every minute when the player receives their first eligible experience drop in a relevant skill within that minute, the game checks for any these to be worn: Grace of the elves, Brooch of the Gods, and if Scripture of Bik is worn and activated. If the player is eligible for any of those requirements, a roll will take place on those items to trigger the corresponding effect of those items. This roll is limited to the first eligible experience drop of every minute.
    • It is possible to spawn more than one catalyst of alteration at once through the use of receiving experience while stalling in an interface and having the additional experience drops roll over into the next minute(s), such as checking animals in player-owned farms.
  • There is no startup cooldown when activating the Scripture of Bik and therefore players can activate the scripture until they receive their first eligible experience drop of the minute for the catalyst of alteration and then turn the scripture off until the next minute, saving charges on the scripture.
