Lends mental power through physical sacrifice.
Performing this ritual allows the priest to convert their physical endurance to mental strength. Opening your wrists with the dagger, you offer your hit points to your God in exchange for guild points. The effectiveness of this conversion is based on the miscellaneous faith skills of the performer. Beware! It's one of the most dangerous rits in game. You wouldn't be the first one to bleed to death due to a lack of cu.se bonus, or even a serious lagburst.
Whilst bleeding you will suffer a -2 loss in con and str. Due to the stat loss, it is usually recommended to have a cu.se bonus of around 250 before using the ritual in case you don't have enough left to stop the bleeding.
The command to end the blood loss is "staunch <something>", with various variations being permissible, such as "staunch blood" and "staunch bleeding".
After changes on November 30, 2011, it's possible to use commands normally (including self-healing) while bleeding.
You can only gain so much gp from this ritual in a certain amount of time, but the specifics are unknown. When you're close to not being able to gain any more gp for the time being, you get a message like this every time you bleed:
Sandelfon is slowly starting to get tired of seeing your blood.
Soon afterwards, it's replaced by this message, signifying the last time you'll get gp from the ritual for a time:
Sandelfon is tired of your blood.
This doesn't prevent you from continuing to bleed, or from performing the ritual--it just means you won't any gp from it for a while.
Waiting will allow you to get gp from bleeding again.
Note that, when holy sacrifice is bestowed into a faith rod, you will not need to "staunch" the bleeding, since the ritual's effect is not applied.
Holy Sacrifice allows the priest to convert their physical endurance to mental strength, by offering their blood and hit points to their god in exchange for guild points. You will require a blade and a holy symbol to perform this ritual.
