An Icon of the Seer, like some other icons, is generally a ceremonial tool that allows a priest to perform a Liao ceremony they have not personally mastered. Sometimes called an Icon of the High Tower, they often bear symbols associated with Wisdom or Vigilance, or the images of paragons and exemplars who showed great insight or clarity of thought, especially the sentinel. In parts of Highguard, the item is called an Icon of the High Tower and takes the form of a tall, thin tower carved with eyes, or an Icon of the Beacon, which depicts a lighthouse rather than a tower. Freeborn, Navarr and Urizen alike may wield an Icon of the Clear Sky. For various reasons they often take the form of a stout walking stick or rod with a sphere of clear gemstone, polished metal sphere or crystal set into one end.

An Icon of the Seer requires months of work by a skilled artisan, commonly with a set of tools inlaid with dragonbone used especially for crafting religious items. They often including trace amounts of the magical materials, especially tempest jade and weltsilver.
