On use, spawns a wisp that orbits Isaac and fires small spectral tears alongside him. The wisps are damaged and eventually destroyed if they make contact with an enemy, an enemy shot or an explosion.
When a wisp is destroyed, the sound of fire being extinguished plays.
A normal wisp has 2 health and spectral tears which deal 1.6-2.4 damage, and is summoned in the middle ring.
A wisp's health can be determined by its size, shrinking as its health decreases.
Multiple wisps can exist at once. Some combinations have an upper limit of 26 wisps: an inner counterclockwise ring of 6, a middle clockwise ring with 8, and an outer counterclockwise ring of 12.
Passively, the Book will combine with other activated items, possibly granting special effects on the created wisps. The recharge time will be based on the other item.
While held, guarantees the first Devil/Angel Room encountered to be an Angel Room, and increases the overall chance of getting one.
Even if a Devil Deal has been taken, Angel Rooms are still possible to encounter. If a Devil Deal is taken before encountering a Room naturally, it's no longer guaranteed to be an Angel Room and follows the usual rules.
This item belongs to the Bookworm set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into Bookworm.
If Isaac walks into a library for the first time withNO!, The Book of Virtues will very likely spawn.
Whenever Isaac is invulnerable the wisps are as well, but can still deal damage.
If a wisp is damaged, it will be smaller in size.
Summoning a wisp while at the maximum will replace the most damaged wisp.
While having 100% chance of Angel Room discovery, Isaac will not get teleported to a Devil Room by using some items which allow it. Instead, he will be teleported to the Angel Room, keeping his 100% chance of discovering Angel Room. This can be used to get to Angel Room on the first floor, where naturally Devil/Angel Room do not spawn, and still keep the 100% chance for the next floor.
While the item can function as both passive and active item, it is treated as a passive item by NO! and Void.
This item is displayed in the Extra HUD as a passive item.
