None, although they will replace any (and every) other faith item when sufficiently charged. (Except for prayer books)
Carried by no-one, although occasionally they can be found (sometimes even ready charged) in player shops. Beware of consecrating prayer beads to another god if they are not newly acquired - any charge in them will be lost. Reconsecrating beads to the same god can be done (to remove a remember, for example).
(Custom beads in a wide variety of colours and materials can be bought from an npc in the Temple of Small Gods)
Charging prayer beads
Newly bought beads are uncharged and can safely be consecrated to your god if none are available in your temple. Note that consecrating beads to another god once charged to any extent will remove any charge that has previously been instilled into the item, they can however be reconsecrated to the same god (to remove a remembered place, for example). The beads are charged when they are involved in any invocation or prayer - that is, every faith guild point spent while holding the beads is transferred through the beads and adds to its total charge. The beads can be used by anyone that worships the God that they have been consecrated to, whether they are charged by themselves or another.
The effects of charged beads are:
- An increase to wisdom of 2 when the beads are held after being charged to 'radiant'.
- An increase to wisdom of 1 when the beads are held after being charged to a little over 40% (Partway through 'bright').
- Acting as a substitute for holy symbols, holy amulets, and relics, whilst held or carried in your inventory.
The beads give off varying degrees of holy auras (which can only be observed by those of the faith) that give an indication as to the amount of guild points that have been instilled within them. The second part of the description is merely a coarser indicator of the same information, with two of the differing levels of auras to each. The beads do not lose charge when they are vaulted or placed in some container.
It is surrounded by a strong holy aura instilled by the numerous invocations it has been involved in.
Starting from as soon as the first guild points are instilled up to fully charged at 5 million guild points, the progression of auras is as follows:
- pale, flickering
- weakly flickering
- steady (holy symbol replacement)
- bright (holy symbol and amulet replacement)
- radiant (symbol, amulet and relic replacement)
These holy auras are not evenly spaced in terms of guild points needed to obtain each successive aura, being more exponential in nature. The diagram below gives some idea as to the scale involved (The listed auras being at the start of their respective ranges). (Diagram made by Warrax)
As a rough guide, at 4 guild point per heartbeat regen the process of charging to 'radiant' takes roughly 21 hours, depending on lag, if all guild points are instilled into the beads. At the more normal 3 guild point regen this figure is closer to 28 hours.
Moving and clicking
One or more beads on prayer beads can also be "move"d or "click"ed around. This appears to involve a faith.rituals.special check but seems purely aesthetic with no functional use beyond counting prayers.
