The Illuminated Book of Balance is one of the illuminated god books obtainable after completing the quest One Piercing Note. It is created by going into one of the south-western rooms in the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede and using Guthix's Book of Balance (obtained from Horror from the Deep and adding pages 1–4) on the book-making table in there. This requires 60 Prayer and 60 Crafting, and grants 10,000 prayer and crafting experience the first time this is done. Each step in making the book drains 200 prayer points, so players with a prayer level under 80 will need to recharge their prayer points before completing the book.
The Illuminated Book of Balance has better stats than the original book of balance in all applicable categories. If lost, it can be reclaimed from a player-owned house bookcase for 120,000. However, the book will lose all its remaining charges, requiring the player to add additional pages in order to activate the passive effect.

The book of balance can be activated like a scrimshaw to provide a passive combat effect. The book can be recharged with any Guthix page, giving 45 minutes of active time per page. This is shared, unchanged, with the original book.
The passive has a 5% chance per hit to activate. When it activates, the sword of edicts falls on the target, then burns and explodes. This deals an initial hit of 90-150%, 3 hits of 7.5-12.5%, and finally a hit of 37.5-62.5% (with the final hit being split in a 3x3 area, if there are multiple targets nearby), for a total of 150-250%. (PvP: initially 30-90%, 3 hits of 2.5-7.5%, and 12.5-37.5 AoE; total 50-150%).
