Step 9

The Symbol of Holiness, governed by Lord Phoen, is obtained at the ninth step of the Order of Voln. This symbol functions as a fire-based attack against an Undead creature. Holiness uses the Standard success resolution system to detemine success or failure.

Note: Its former weapon/armor blessing functionality has been consolidated into the Symbol of Blessing.

Favor Cost

Favor cost is based on the member's level. See Table for specific examples.


Symbol of Holiness <undead target> (can be abbreviated eg. sym hol <target>)

Note: Must be targeted at a single undead.


sym of holiness werebear

A wave of power flows out of you and toward a werebear. Suddenly, the werebear bursts into flames and falls to the ground! The werebear rolls around desperately trying to extinguish the flames.
   ... 50 points of damage!
   Left arm incinerated. Unfortunate.
   The werebear snarls in agony, cradling
   its wounded left foreleg.

   The werebear is stunned!

Obtaining Symbol of Holiness


Talk to the ninth monk on the path to enlightenment for instructions. Upon obtaining the requisite favor and completing the assigned task, the monk will teach the member the Symbol of Holiness.

Favor Required to Obtain Symbol of Holiness

Formula: 800 + (( level2 × 15 ) ÷ 3 )
Ex. level 10 member: 800 + ((10 × 10 × 15) ÷ 3) = 1300 favor
Ex. level 20 member: 800 + ((20 × 20 × 15) ÷ 3) = 2800 favor
