The Amulet of zealots is a Dungeoneering reward that, when worn, increases the boost of activated single-stat boosting prayers by 10%, excluding leech curses. It has the highest Prayer penalty of any item. The amulet requires a Prayer level of 48 and a Dungeoneering level of 48, and costs 40,000 Dungeoneering Tokens.
The increases to prayers are a flat increase to the base. As an example, the Overpowering Force prayer usually gives a 6% increase to Ranged damage. When used with the amulet of zealots, this rises to 16%. The amulet does not aid enemy single-stat drain from the Ancient curses.
Unlike most untradeable items, the amulet of zealots does not drop as coins upon death in the Wilderness. Rather, a player may run back and retrieve it. Whether or not this is a bug is unknown.
Due to the amulet's high Prayer drain, prayer flashing is advised when using it.
The extra prayer bonuses acquired when using this amulet with normal single-stat boosting prayers, may prove to be more effective than ancient curses, especially in Player vs. Player situations. Probably the best way to use this amulet is to use magic, cast vulnerability, and autocast Fire Surge. For best results, use Legacy Mode. The resulting hits can go up to 620+, which is very hard-hitting.

- This item's original name was the Amulet of Hopelessness, as found in the Dungeoneering rewards guide and the level up message. However, on 22 November 2011 this was fixed and now correctly says amulet of zealots.
- For a time after the Evolution of Combat, the amulet would work with multi-stat prayers and curses. This was patched on 3 July 2013.
- This means that it is now possible to achieve stronger prayers in F2P (+16% boost) than the highest-levelled prayers: Turmoil, Anguish, and Torment (+10%).
- Zealot is Greek for the words emulator, admirer and follower.
