|Examine||The unholy book of Zamorak.|
Zamorak's unholy book is a book held in place of a shield. For information on how to acquire a god book, see the god books article. Zamorak's unholy book must be made using all four torn Zamorak pages which can be purchased from other players, obtained from treasure trails or by cremating a Vyrewatch. If you lose this item you can reclaim it at the Lighthouse by speaking to Jossik at no cost to the player (when retrieved, lost prayer books contain all the pages that were previously added to them). With Zamorak's unholy book, a player can preach and perform ceremonies, such as blessing, last rites, and wedding rites by operating it. Also, if a player's Prayer level is 50 or higher, they can bless Unholy symbols with Zamorak's unholy book by expending 40 Prayer points for each symbol.
After completion of One Piercing Note, if the book has all four pages, and you have 60 crafting and 60 prayer, you can use it to create an Illuminated unholy book. This grants you 10,000 prayer experience (for the first time this is done only) and leaves you with both the Zamorak's unholy book and an Illuminated unholy book.
Since the Evolution of Combat, the unholy book has become less useful. It used to have offensive statistics among the best in the off-hand slot, but its offensive bonuses were removed and it now gives a critical hit bonus to all 3 styles instead.
Filling the Unholy book with all pages currently costs 8,593,786 coins. Note: Once you have filled the book, you cannot take the pages out.
