Binding book detail.png

The Binding book is an integral part of the Legends' Quest. It contains information on demons and can also provide a fairly useful service. By right clicking on it, you can enchant vials. This will turn one or more vials in your inventory into enchanted vials. This process temporarily drains magic and prayer, both of which you need to keep at level 10 or higher for the enchantment to work. You can then put pure water into the enchanted vials from a gold bowl to make holy water which will weaken demons (namely Nezikchened) in combat.

Also during Legends' Quest, the player can use the book on Ungadulu when he is possessed to release him from Nezikchened's control.

After doing the quest, this book can be found in the bookcase in your house.

If lost BEFORE completing the quest, you must re-obtain it from scratch. (Gems must be reobtained, although the SMELL runes are not required a second time).

Use an Octagram of fire to confine unearthly creatures of the underworld – the perfect geometry confuses them.

Take to yourself empty vials free of all liquids.

Read warily the enchantment contained herewithin in order to magick the vial for the holding of holy or sacred water.

Take utmost care as you enchant them.

With great care and precision place the sacred water into the magicked vial and stopper it.

Present thyself before the possessed with good intent and ready manner.

With least obstruction and utmost solemnity hold open the pages of this great tome in order that the goodlight falls upon the victim completely.

Be thee prepared in every capacity, for the demon’s tricks and wiles will outwit the unready man.
