Amulet of balance ( ' )
Item Type Amulet
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 3
Material Iron

Amulets of balance are rather rare items that, when worn, reduce the impact chaotic or lawful deeds have on your alignment, but only if you are neutral. An amulet of balance will not impact alignment on its own, and will not damage chaotic or lawful players who wear it.

A blessed amulet will divide alignment impacts by 8, an uncursed amulet by 4, and a cursed one will halve them.

Desirability[edit source]

Amulets of balance are no help if you want to achieve neutrality – if you are not already neutral, they have no effect whatsoever. If you want to shift your alignment from chaotic to neutral, obtain an amulet of order instead, or use other methods, such as performing lawful quests or using an altar. If you want to shift your alignment from lawful to neutral, attack a non-hostile creature, steal, shoplift, rob graves, kill a child, or perform a myriad of other available despicable acts.

It is champions of balance, or characters that invested a lot in a high piety score with their neutral deity, who will find this item most desirable, as it allows them to perform deeds contrary to their alignment with greater ease.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

It can be gotten as a random item from killing or pickpocketing a monster. Guth'Alak will reward druids with one if they kill Keethrax.

You will also receive an amulet of balance if you become crowned as a neutral champion.
