Death Magic
Soul Reaping
Common: Bones
Chitin Fragments
Granite Slabs

(from the talon style)


A Necromancer focus item available in the first three Guild Wars campaigns. This off-hand weapon is tied to either Death Magic (typically resembling a gauntlet) or Curses (typically looking like a diamond-shaped shield).

There are several other skins available for Grim Cestas in the Prophecies campaign: a gorgon head (tied to Curses), a mummified bird talon (linked to Death Magic), or a bloody knife (tied to either). One especially valuable Grim Cesta is the quest reward from Cities of Ascalon, which resembles a Blood Knife; 55 Monks use its -50 health mod as a critical component of their equipment.

Grim Cestas cannot be dyed. Attempting to do so results in the dye making the appropriate sound for dyeing, but returning to its position in your inventory.
