Prayer is a skill in RuneScape Classic where the player turns on "prayers" to aid them in combat. In the very early days of RuneScape Classic, Prayer was divided into 2 parts: PrayGood and PrayEvil. However, the two skills were merged into "prayer" and the experience from the type of prayer with the highest experience was kept. The skill with the lower amount of experience was discarded.

Prayer is a part of combat, by increasing attack, defense, and strength temporarily. It is also factored into your combat level.

It is one of the hardest skills to train because of small experience that bones give. Prayer accompanies combat by increasing Attack, Defense, and Strength temporarily.

To train prayer, you must bury bones. Simply pick up the bones dropped by a monster and click on the bones in your inventory to bury them. They will disappear from your inventory and you will gain prayer experience depending on the type of bone that you buried.

Recharging Prayer Points Edit

There are three main ways to recharge prayer points: by praying at an altar, drinking Restore prayer potion or by dying. Players will also receive one prayer point upon levelling up Prayer skill.

Praying at an altar or dying will recharge all prayer points and praying at the Monastery altar will even give +2 bonus.

Prayer restore potions increase prayer by (Level * 0.25 + 7) points. To get the maximum Restore prayer potion effect of 31, player would need level 96 Prayer.

Some equipment help to conserve prayer points. These items include:

Training Edit

KillingEdit

A good way to train prayer is to kill monsters, pick up their bones and bury them.

Good monsters for regular bones It is advised that you kill monsters you can easily one-hit for fast bones.

Good monsters for big bones

Good monsters for dragon bones

Bat Bones are not suggested. They give 4.5 experience per bone instead of 3.75 (regular bones) but it is not worth it unless you're training on bats.

BuyingEdit

Another popular alternative is to buy dragon bone certificates from other people, uncert them and then bury them.

Trivia Edit

  • Paralyze Monster was not added from the move to the RuneScape 2. Instead, it was renamed "Protect from Melee" which still nullifies damage, but the monster can still attack. Exceptions are if the attack is "Magical melee" and if the player is fighting another player, then the Prayer merely increases Defense.
  • When first introduced, Prayer was 2 skills, PrayGood and PrayEvil, that were merged later on.
  • No player was able to achieve 99 Prayer before the introduction of Runescape 2 which then officially became the main version of the game. Therefore, it is not known who the first player to achieve 99 Prayer on Runescape Classic is.
