Unlock Method
Book Of Virtues Defeat Isaac as Bethany.

Book Of Virtues is an active item. Bethany starts with this item.


  • Summons an orbiting wisp familiar that fires spectral tears, deals contact damage to enemies, and blocks enemy shots.
    • Wisps can take two hits before they are destroyed.
    • A maximum of 16 wisps can be active at once: one inner ring of eight and an outer ring of eight.
    • Using the item while at the maximum number of wisps regenerates three random wisps that have been hit.
  • Increases the chance of finding Angel Rooms while held (they will be around three times as likely to spawn as Devil Rooms).
    • Also allows for the first Devil Room to be replaced by an Angel Deal.
    • The effect is lost after a Devil Deal is taken.
    • The overall chance for these rooms to appear will be significantly higher than usual.


  • Book of Virtues has a special effect with Bethany, as the colors of soul hearts are tracked and used as energy for activated collectibles.
    • When regularly charged or a soul heart is consumed, a blue wisp is created.
    • If a black heart is consumed, it will create a black wisp that fires a tears that can inflict fear.
    • If a black heart is consumed, the standard effect of damaging the enemies in the room will occur.
    • White hearts create a white wisp that regenerates after a room is cleared. If the white wisp is fully regenerated, it will regenerate one existing wisp. If all wisps are fully regenerated, it will spawn a new blue wisp. The tears fired by white wisps also have the Lost Contact effect.
  • Wisps take no damage from lasers, brimstone, or explosions, and do not protect the player from any of these.


In-game Footage


  • This item originated from the Binding of Isaac: Community Remix mod. However, it gave a random item effect on a 6 room recharge instead of its current effect.
