|The last lingering presence of the soul|
Description[edit | edit source]
Unlike the other religions of the age, worshippers of Mitra favor dignified and elegant rituals. They frown upon human sacrifice and prefer to perform purification rituals upon the dead. Ostensibly, this ritual involves positioning the Ankh of Mitra over the body of the deceased and saying a few quiet prayers. The ankh is then touched to the corpse, in order to cleanse it of any last impurities. Some of the more experienced priests have noticed that at the moment of contant, their ankh becomes slightly heavier, as if something is clinging to the instrument. Those priests are often given vows of silence, shortly thereafter.

Using the Mitraen Ankh to harvest a human body, both Player and Non-player, will yield Lingering Essence similar to using an Axe to harvest an animal yields Hide. Remember to loot the body prior to harvesting or you will lose the contents of the body. You can get only ONE per body. Spoil timer for lingering essence is 60 minutes.
