Chrism holder

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Chrism holders are items worn by adventurers that hold chrism gems and introduced at Ebon Gate 2011. When dead, the adventurer can LOOK at the item to pop the chrism out onto the ground. When the gem hits the ground, there is a small chance that the gem will break, thus leaving the body with no chrism.

At Ebon Gate 2012 and other special events, merchants have offered services upgrade chrism holders to also work on a cleric using Symbol of the Proselyte (340). Chrism holders typically cost 100,000 silvers off the shelf. Chrism holders are not automatically holy symbols.


PUSH a holder with a gem in hand to load it. LOOK at the holder to drop the gem to the ground for a cleric to pick up.

Greater Chrism Holders

Greater chrism holders (GCHs) were introduced at Ebon Gate 2012 and automatically chrism the wearer when LOOKed at. Thus, the wearer will receive the full benefit of a chrism without the need for a cleric raise, and there is no chance of chrism breakage from hitting the ground. In addition, GCHs provide a chance for the chrism to replenish and the gem can be used again on the next death.

The holy magic within the {item} glows with a bright white aura, replenishing the blue diamond liquid interior and sealing the crack to make it whole again.  The blue diamond remains nestled in the {item}'s bezel setting.

Known GCHs include six that grant the wearer self-knowledge of Prayer of Protection (303) (distributed at Return to Coraesine Field) and two that provide a +2 to spirit recovery enhancive (distributed at Cessation of Coraesine Field).
