Notes
This is one of the few tomes with the ability to deal damage. However, it sacrifices quite a bit of its healing power to do so. Due to Priest’s inherently low DPS, it is useful in situations where dealing damage is more important than healing. The stat bonuses are similar to other items dropped by the Nightmare Colony, taking away HP and VIT in exchange for offensive stats.

At 75 wis, this tome deals 640 damage with a 6 range radius. Although the damage to MP ratio isn’t too great, this tome is good for quickly clearing groups of enemies, such as small bees in The Nest. However, without a good Magic Heal pet, it’s hard to deal that much overall damage to bosses: stat-boosting tomes such as the Ceremonial Merlot and the Tome of Holy Furor, or the stronger Chaotic Scripture may be preferred in such situations.
