Soul phylactery detail

The soul phylactery was a reward for being a member from 1 August through 30 September 2012. If players died, this item allowed them to respawn with all their gear and items still intact and with their life points fully restored. Once it had been used, it would be destroyed.

It did not restore prayer or any stats which had been drained, nor did it work in PvP situations. In the Fight Kiln, players killed by the special attack of a TokHaar-Ket-Dill would not be revived.

All unused soul phylacteries were removed from the game at the beginning of 2013.

  • The word "phylactery" originates from the Greek φυλακτήριον (transliterated, phulakterion), which means "protection" - or an item believed to hold such a purpose, often in the form of an amulet or necklace. In fantasy settings, it is a container that holds part of a soul, acting as protection against death.
