What is prayer?
Prayer is trained by either burying bones, or using them on altars, or training with the bonecrusher. 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. 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.
All of the prayers are listed here.
The only prayers that you can't unlock with leveling up, are Rigour, Preserve and Augury. You can buy the scrolls at the blood money shop (Leagues Tutor) at Edgeville (home).
To get bones, you need to get them by killing NPC's. As an ironman you can't buy them from players or the high priest store.
|Bones||A lot of NPC's, like skeletons, bandits and dust devils|

How to train prayer?
Once you have the bones, training is pretty simple. There are three ways to train this skill:
- Take the bones you have and bury them in the ground;
- Use them on an altar;
- Bury them with the bonecrusher.
Burying bones is the fastest way, but it give less xp than when you offer the bones on an altar.
You can find an altar north of Edgeville bank (just beside the Home teleport location) to use all types of bones on for around 3.5x more experience than when you bury them.
Ruby Members Zone altar
You can find an altar east of the Ruby Members Zone (::dz) to use all types of bones on for more than 4x experience than when you bury them.
Using your bones on Ectofuntus gives the best prayer xp. To get there, either buy an ectophial from the slayer shop for 50 slayer points, or use the teleport via the Ancient wizard.
To get there via the Ancient wizard, teleport to the Experiments, climb the ladder and run east beyond the farming patch until you reach the Ectofuntus.
If you kill a NPC that drops bones, the bonecrusher will drop that bones automatically. It gives around 3 times more xp than when you bury bones, but less than when you offer the bones on an altar.
You can buy the bonecrusher at Borat for 250 participation points. He stays in the bank at Edgeville (home).
You have to charge the bonecrusher with ecto-tokens. You can buy them at the general store. The bonecrusher is untradeable.
The prayer master (Brother Jered) can be found at the shops of Edgeville (use the command ::shops). He can give you your skilling cape for free when you reach level 99. In addition, he can give you skilling tasks to obtain prayer points or money (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). Finally, you can see his master's shop where you can spend your prayer points.
