Ziggurat Wiki

Oaths are vows to the Gods of the Ziggurat, and are made at Altars, special rooms which can spawn. They function very similar to Perks. Compared to those, Oaths generally have stronger effects, but on the other hand, Oaths always incur a downside/tradeoff.

If taken by Jacob, there will be three choices instead of two.

Oaths names consist of an adjective (responsible for the negative effect) followed by a noun (responsible for the positive effect). Both adjective and noun are totally randomized, so you can have an Oath consisting of any combination of these two components, except when the effects are directly contradictory (e.g. "+15% Staff damage" and "-15% Staff damage" together).
