The Illuminated Ancient Book can be created after finishing One Piercing Note. To make this book, use an ancient book on the book stand in the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede and complete all the steps to make the illuminated version and unlock the illuminated god book override.
To create an Illuminated Ancient Book, 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:
- Copy text
- Embellish capitals
- Add colour
- 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.
The illuminated book has better stats than the original book in all applicable categories. 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. Unlike some Zaros-aligned items such as the Shard of Zaros, equipping this book will offer no protection within the God Wars Dungeon.

The illuminated ancient book can be activated like a scrimshaw to provide a passive combat effect. The book can be recharged with Ancient page 1, Ancient page 2, Ancient page 3, or Ancient page 4, 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 has a 5% chance per hit to activate. When it activates, icicles hit and surround the target, dealing 120-200% damage (PvP: 40-120%) and binding the target for 4 seconds. This is based on Nex's ice prison attack.
