Prior to the Second War, Alonsus Faol presented a set of enchanted librams to the first five Knights of the Silver Hand. These holy tomes were some of the church's most ancient relics, and each libram represented what Faol saw as a core trait of the Silver Hand: retribution, holiness, protection, justice, and compassion. Faol gave one libram to each of the paladins and challenged them to become living embodiments of what their holy tomes represented.[1]

In World of Warcraft


Alexandros Mograine had a libram, a passage from which reads: My brothers, my sisters, join me now in battle, join me now in victory, and we shall ride forth to the Light’s embrace together.[4]

As relics

Removed from game The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 5.0.4.

Librams were formerly Paladin-specific relics. Prior to patch 4.0.1, they typically gave significant bonuses to a single spell rather than a general stat bonus of ranged weapons; for instance, they might reduce the cost of [Holy Light] or increase the damage done by [Divine Storm].

This functionality was changed in patch 4.0.1 in preparation for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Like rings or trinkets, librams now give Stamina along with other stats appropriate to the spec they were designed for, often with sockets as well. They are no longer exclusive to paladins; those with Strength can also be used by death knights, while those with intellect can be used by druids and shaman.


These are librams that are no longer obtainable to players who do not currently have one.
