A blessed trident moulded by cleansing flame, with three points symbolising the combined might of the three holy gods. It is a favoured weapon of the Shining One's servants.

Trishulas are a blessed weapon, slightly stronger than the demon trident it was formed from. Like eudemon blades and sacred scourges, it always has the holy wrath brand.

You can create a trishula through the Shining One's 6* ability. You can turn a trishula back into a demon trident by using Kikubaaqudgha's or Lugonu's final ability to replace its brand with pain or distortion, though this is rarely a good trade.

Unlike other blessed weapons, you can't find trishulas on angels or daevas, although Mennas may spawn with one. Trishulas are the only blessed weapon that can spawn as a randart, but only if the unrand Condemnation fails to spawn.
