Prayer is a Combat.svg Combat skill that provides passive bonuses at the expense of prayer points. Prayer points can be gained by burying bones from the Bank. Killing monsters while wearing the Bone Necklace (item).svg Bone Necklace will automatically bury bones and award twice the normal amount of prayer points. During Combat, a maximum of two prayers can be active at once. There is no limit to the amount of prayer points that the player can have. Raising Prayer to Prayer Level 99 will unlock the Prayer Skillcape (item).svg Prayer Skillcape for purchase from the Shop.

Prayer experience is earned when dealing damage to monsters while any prayers costing per player attack are active. The amount of Prayer experience earned is 0.2 per point of damage dealt multiplied by the prayer point cost per player attack. Note that the 'prayer point cost' is the base cost before any cost reductions are applied, meaning that methods used by the player to reduce the cost of active prayers does not reduce the experience earned. This experience can be increased by 7% by equipping the Gold Emerald Ring (item).svg Gold Emerald Ring, which is multiplicative with the 1% increase from Pyro (pet).png Pyro and 5% from Firemaking Skillcape (item).svg Firemaking Skillcape for a maximum increase of 13.42%.


Bones can primarily be acquired by killing Monsters that are not in Dungeons. Alternative sources are Raw Skeleton Fish (item).svg Raw Skeleton Fish from Fishing (skill).svg Fishing, and the Bone Offering (spell).svg Bone Offering or Blessed Offering (spell).svg Blessed Offering spells from Magic (skill).svg Alt Magic.


All prayers that provide a percentage increase apply multiplicatively, except for Stone Skin (prayer).svg Stone Skin which provides a flat 5% increase to Damage Reduction. For example, Mystic Might (prayer).svg Mystic Might's +15% Magic Evasion bonus will multiply the player's Magic Evasion Rating by 1.15 rather than directly providing a 15% chance to evade any Magic attack. Likewise, the +15% Magic Accuracy bonus it provides will multiply the player's Magic Accuracy Rating by 1.15 rather than simply adding 15% to their hit chance. Players can view the Combat.svg Combat page for more detail on how hit chance is calculated.

The three Protection prayers are worded differently and behave differently from prayers that affect Evasion Rating. For example, Protect from Magic (prayer).svg Protect from Magic provides a flat 85% chance for the player to dodge any Magic attack.

Reducing Prayer Point Costs

To reduce the amount of prayer points used by active prayers, players can:

  • Equip the Prayer Skillcape (item).svg Prayer Skillcape, which halves the cost of prayers (rounded down to the nearest whole number of prayer points), except in the case of prayers costing one point which remain at their original cost
  • Equip the Priest Hat (item).svg Priest Hat, which reduces the cost of prayers by one point
  • Use Divine Potions, which provide a 10-35% chance to not consume prayer points
  • Acquire Monk-ey (pet).png Monk-ey, which provides a 5% chance to not consume prayer points

Note that the Priest Hat (item).svg Priest Hat reduction is applied before the cost is halved by the Prayer Skillcape (item).svg Prayer Skillcape, meaning that for prayers costing an odd number of prayer points there is no benefit gained by equipping the Priest Hat (item).svg Priest Hat if already using the Prayer Skillcape (item).svg Prayer Skillcape.

In addition, the chance to not consume prayer points provided by Divine Potions and Monk-ey (pet).png Monk-ey are rolled independently. In order words, using both at the same time rolls twice in total: once with a 5% chance, followed by an additional roll with a 10-35% chance to not consume prayer points.


The skillcape can be purchased from the store for Coins.svg 1,000,000 after the player reaches Prayer Level 99.
