The Mitre of Holiness is the Priest quest artifact. It is the prize for completing the Priest quest, and is lawful for wishing purposes. Its base item type is a helm of brilliance.

Effects

When carried, the Mitre of Holiness confers fire resistance; when worn, in addition to the normal effects of a helm of brilliance, it also provides extrinsic protection, augmenting your magic cancellation as a ring of protection, but not cumulative with one. If the wearer is a Priest, they also take half physical damage from all undead monsters and major demons; this property does not stack with other half physical damage sources.[1]

When invoked, you get an energy boost equal to half the extra energy you would need to get to full; it will not give you more than 120 energy per invoke, and if it would have given you less than 12 energy, it fully refills your energy instead.[2]
