Zamorak symbol

Recommended Posts

Recently I've been confused by what the Zamorak symbol should be. I've always thought that it looks like a M, such as the unholy symbol, and the Zamorak staff (W) was an anomaly. But when I look through the pictures in the item database, it seems that there's 50% M and 50% W images of the symbol. Does it not matter what the orientation is?

 

Funny, years of playing and I still don't know how the Zamorak symbol is supposed to be like. :unsure:

I can't think orientation matters with it.

 

Though I kinda assume the W form to be "correct" as that is the way it is displayed on altars if I recall correctly.

whast I find odd is that the zamorakian spear has niether a W or M on it.

 

Anyways, they're the same symbol, just flipped either way to look better on the object. An M would look odd on the top of a staff in my opinion.

If that's the case, I'm fine with the hypothesis. But I can find the two versions as printed images on objects as well.

 

Printed logos:

Zamorak Cloak -- M

Zamorak Platebody -- W

 

 

Objects:

Zamorak Crozier -- M

Unholy Symbol -- M

Zamorak Staff -- W

Zamorak Mjolnir -- W

 

These are gotten from images I see using the Grand Exchange database. Some objects are unclear, so I didn't include them.

Zammy symbol is not focused on any specific letter, but instead it's focused on three points that sticks out

He knows that, but it's easier to call it a letter to say which way it sticks out.

I think Yak meant unlike other symbols where they have a specific way up to go Zamoraks symbol is about the 3 pointed shape, and as long as it is the 3 pointed shape it is his symbol reagardless of it being W M E or a back to front E

I would assume the reason it appears both ways is due to the fact Zamorak is the god of Chaos.

 

The symbol appearing both ways would imply there is no order, but only chaos for the way the symbol could appear.
