From Etherum
Jump to: navigation, search
 This is the regular Prayer guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.

Prayer is trained by either burying bones, or using them on altars that can be found around Etherum. Different bones give different amounts of experience.

Prayers are unlocked as the level in the skill goes up, these Prayers are used to aid the player in combat. The prayers can help boost Attack, Defence, Strength, Ranged, and Magic; among other uses. When prayers are activated, your Prayer points will start to drain until the prayer is turned off or all Prayer points are used. To restore these, either drink a potion that restores prayer, or pray at an altar.

Prayer is relatively simple to train. However, it is very expensive unless you are getting the bones yourself.


There are two different sets of prayers. The "modern" prayers are enabled by default, and include prayers up to level 77. The other Prayers are known as Curses, these are aimed at players with higher Prayer levels as these are a much more powerful set of prayers.

Luckily, it is very easy to switch between Prayers. All you need to do is teleport to Edgeville, along the western wall of the building north of you, is an altar. Simply right-click it and select "Switch Spells" and then choose the Spellbook you want.


  • Super and Extreme Donators can change their Prayers from Normal Prayers to Curses anywhere besides the Wilderness, Minigames, and in Combat situations.

Prayer Calculator

Note: The calculator does not take bonus exp as a factor as there are too many variables regarding bonus xp. The calculator is also based on using all bones on gilded altar.

If you enter a current exp that is above 13,034,431 (level 99), the calculator will automatically cut the exp in half.

Getting Bones

Even though Prayer can be very useful, and very rewarding, it is also one of the most expensive skills to train, depending on whether you choose to get the bones required yourself, or buying it from other players.

The faster method would be to buy the bones from other players, this does cost a lot of money, but as mentioned, gets the job done quickly.

If you are one of the people that would rather put in some extra work and go slaying for these bones, the following will show you exactly where and how to get them.


You can acquire normal Bones by killing any kind of low level creatures around Etherum. Using normal Bones to train is not recommended at all, as all other types of bones are ranging from marginally to significantly better, and are not very hard to obtain.

A good example of NPC's that drop bones are Rock crabs. To get them, click on the world map icon, beside the minimap.


Then select "Combat Training" for the category, and then "Rock Crabs Area"


Big Bones

Like normal Bones, these bones are also very simple to get. Although they are better than normal Bones, it is still not recommended to use these Bones to train.

Some good monsters to kill for these bones are Moss Giants, as they aren't hard to kill. You can get to Moss Giants by opening your spellbook and clicking on Combat Training teleports, and choosing the "Edgeville Dungeon" option at the top, and then walking south to the NPCs.


Dragon Bones

In terms of experience per gold, Dragon Bones are some of the best bones for this skill.

Dragon bones have a 100% drop rate from any dragon in Etherum. Killing high level or low level dragons makes no difference for the Bones, it is recommended to kill Green Dragons. Killing them in the northern regions of North Neitiznot is optimal, as the only other alternative location is near a very popular Pking location, where the risk of being attacked and or killed is very high.



To get there, click on the world map icon, beside the minimap. p5WpixQ.png

Then select "Skilling" for the category, and then "Mining and Smithing - Neitiznot"


When you arrive, walk north of your initial location after having arrived, and click on the beginning of the broken bridge there. (You may have to stand right in front of it in order to cross.)


Now walk north once again until you see Green Dragons to the most northern part of Neitiznot.

Wyvern Bones

Wyvern bones are only dropped by one monster in the game, Wyverns. Wyverns can be found in "Asgarnian Dungeon" within the Combat training teleports.


To get to Wyverns, you will need a frozen key. These keys are dropped from Ice Giants found in the Asgarnian Dungeon. Once you have a key. You can go into the cave entrance on the western side the dungeon.


Once you enter the sub-cave, you will see the high level monsters.


Dagannoth bones

Dagannoth Bones can only be obtained by killing the three Dagannoth Kings.

Frost dragon bones

Frost dragon bones can be obtained by killing Frost Dragons.

Zogre bones

Zogre bones are the fourth best bones in the game and can only be obtained by killing the boss Mutant Tarn.

Hydra bones

Hydra bones are the third best bones in the game and can only be obtained by killing the boss Alchemical Hydra.

Superior dragon bones

Superior Dragon Bones are the second best bones in the game. They can be obtained from the boss Vorkath.

Ourg bones

Ourg bones are the best bones in the game. They are only obtained from the premium point store.


Once you have the bones training is pretty simple. There are two ways to train this skill:

  • Take the bones you have, and bury them in the ground
  • Using the on an Altar.

Using bones on an Altar gives twice the experience for each bone than you would get if you buried it. So to be as efficient as possible, and to save as much money as possible if you did buy the bones, it's recommended to use them on an Altar. An altar can be found along the western wall of the bank at Neitiznot (south).
