Book of war detail

A Book of war is a book held in place of a shield, and is the God book aligned with Bandos. It can be purchased from Jossik for 5,000 coins at the Lighthouse. Books of war must be made using all four torn Bandos pages which can be purchased from other players or obtained from treasure trails. Equipping a book of war allows the player to preach and perform ceremonies, such as blessing, last rites, and wedding rites, by operating it (none of which have any effect on the game itself, and are simply recited lines of text), costing 25% of the player's special attack energy.

Lost books of war can be reclaimed by speaking to Jossik, complete with all pages that have been added, for no cost. Alternatively, for those who do not wish to travel to the lighthouse, Perdu will return them to players for 12,000 coins

The book of war can be used as a training weapon for nightmare zone, as it offers a +5 prayer bonus and a +2 strength bonus. It is the only god book to give a strength bonus.

Filling the Book of war with all pages currently costs 15,121 coins.
