After gaining the ability to cast Sanctify, a cleric will begin to acquire devotion as they gain experience. A skilled cleric can use this devotion to permanently enhance combat armaments for use against the undead. This enhancement provides both offensive and defensive benefits, and can even be further bestowed with Holy Fire flares. F2P clerics cannot modify items with 330.
Undead possess a natural 25% damage resistance to physical attacks, as well as a +25 bonus to defending against PSM skills. Each tier of Sanctify on relevant offensive combat gear negates 20% of these defenses, removing them completely at the fifth tier (T5).
Further, sanctified items gain the following benefits when combating the undead (and only the undead):
- Melee and ranged weapons gain a bonus of 2 AS per tier.
- Runestaves gain a bonus of 2 bolt AS and 1.2 CS per tier.
- Each tier also has a 20% chance to anchor non-corporeal undead when defeated.
- Targets wielding a sanctified shield or torso armor gain a bonus, per tier, of 2 DS, 1.2 TD, and +1 effective level against sheer fear.
- Targets wielding a sanctified runestaff gain a bonus, per tier, of 1 DS, 0.6 TD, and +0.5 effective level against sheer fear.
- Runestaff and shield bonuses stack with torso armor, but not with each other.
Holy Fire Flares
- A cleric with at least 100 ranks of Spiritual Lore, Blessings can spend 200,000 devotion to attempt to bestow permanent Holy Fire flares to a T5 sanctified armament.
- Holy Fire flares, in addition to a standard heat critical, will deal a random 50 to 100 concussion damage. The concussion damage is capped at (30 + (creature level / 5))% of the target’s total health.
- example: a level 40 target the concussion damage would be capped at (30 + (40 / 5)) = 38% of their max health.
- An innate cleric bonus to these flares is that the concussion damage is instead 75 to 125.
- Clerics can EVOKE 330 at items to temporarily grant them Holy Fire flares and non-corporeal undead anchoring. This enhancement functions for clerics only, does not apply any of the other 330 benefits, and lasts for 4 hours. A higher level cleric can EVOKE items for a lower level cleric to grant them these temporary benefits, except that the Holy Fire flares will not have the Cleric-only bonus damage.
- At 90 and 180 ranks of Spiritual Lore, Religion clerics gain an extra charge of a Holy Fire flare that is guaranteed to trigger on their next attack.
- Level: +1 per level
- Cleric Spell Ranks: +2 per rank up to level, +1 per rank above level ("up to level" is based on 1x spell training and thus a level 50 cleric with 100 ranks will have 52 ranks at +2 and 48 ranks at +1)
- Wisdom: +1 per stat bonus
- Influence: +1 per stat bonus
- Spiritual Mana Control: +1 per 2 ranks
- Magic Item Use: +1 per 10 ranks
- Arcane Symbols: +1 per 10 ranks
- Shrine Bonus: +20 for matching CONVERT exactly, +10 for same CONVERT pantheon (bonuses do not stack)
- Being wounded and under a penalty from low spirit will hinder sanctification attempts
Holy places that show through SENSE a deity that you are converted to will give a +20 bonus. If you are not converted to that deity, but are in the same pantheon (Liabo, Lornon, and Neutral) it will give a +10 bonus.
Holy places that show multiple deities will not give the +20 deity bonus, but instead the +10 pantheon bonus. An example of this would be if you were converted to Lorminstra, and in a location that senses as "Lorminstra, Imaera, Phoen, and Oleani."
An omnishrine, a location that senses as having the "harmonized presence of multiple deities' influence," will give the +20 deity bonus to all clerics, regardless of deity selection (including other, forsaken, and not yet chosen).
A location that senses as having the "influence of an indiscernible higher power" is an unknown, but specific deity in the Neutral pantheon. A forsaken cleric received a +10 bonus while a Lorminstra cleric received +0.

- Ensorcelling sanctified gear requires an inky black potion.
CAST <object> will provide a descriptive estimate of sanctification difficulty as well as the number of times the object has been sanctified. A bard loresinging the object can tell you the exact difficulty.
CHANNEL <object> will perform the permanent application.
- Step 1: Make sure you have the necessary devotion stored up using the RESOURCE verb.
- Step 2: Make sure you have the necessary bonuses to successfully perform the sanctification.
- Step 3: Apply any potions required.
- Step 4: CHANNEL <object> to profit.
You gesture at some faded leather hiking boots with fur-lined cuffs. You sense that the leather hiking boots has already been permanently sanctified 2 times and that you can only fail if you are horribly unlucky.
You channel at a pair of crimson-stained vultite-edged handwraps. Reaching within yourself, you summon up your devotion and call upon your connection to Marlu. In response, a diffuse flat black glow wells from your hands, coalescing around the vultite-edged handwraps. You make a horribly poor attempt! Success! The manifestation of hallowed energy sinks inward, permeating the leather and sanctifying the handwraps. All that remains of the divine corona is a wavering dark grey afterimage.
Note that the color of the glow, the color of the afterimage, and the name of the god will vary based on your chosen deity.
Failure! The manifestation of hallowed energy wanes and dissipates, with only a brief silver afterimage left in its wake. You feel some of your devotion slip away in the fruitless attempt.

A cleric can suffuse devotion at the rate of 1 point of energy per 2,000 devotion. Each point of suffused energy used in a sanctification attempt is equivalent to a +1 bonus.
Post Name Titles
After spending 50 full weeks of devotion (2.5 million) the cleric will gain access to the Sanctifier title. After bestowing 15 items with Holy Fire (3 million devotion) the cleric will gain access to the Holy Flame title. Devotion spent on bestowing Holy Fire counts for devotion spent towards the Sanctifier title. The SPELL command will show the lifetime amount of both devotion spent and armaments bestowed with Holy Fire.
The titles are listed in the skill section of the title list (TITLE LIST SKILL) and these titles also work with the SET SHOWDEITYTITLE ON setting to create a title of: <character name> the <title> of <deity>.
