Runescape Prayer Leveling Guide

Here’s a good guide to use for leveling prayer.

Prayer can be one of the most boring and time-taking skills in Runescape. But in higher levels, prayer can be very useful for surviving. For non-members prayer can take a long time to level up.

Here’s how to do it.

  1. Go to the goblin house in Lumbridge and collect and bury all the bones littered on the ground.
  2. Requires a confident ability to kill Hill Giants (level 28). Go to the Edgeville dungeon and kill Hill Giants and get big bones and bury them.
  3. Requires going into the wilderness. If you can survive this is the best way for free players. Look on the world map for the “Bone Yard”. It is in about level 27 wilderness and has plenty of Skeletons (level 25). There are plenty of bone respawns as well as 6 big bone respawns. The skeletons way team up so beware as well as pk’ers (player killers). I suggest you send a low-level scout file to check out the area to much sure there’s no pk’ers and then send your main file. Bring food and 1 piece of armor, a weapon, and shield.

    there is one more way to make money. if you go to the chaos temple in the wilderness then there are very manys bones scattered around. that can help your prayer too.

    Can i buy like 115k woth of b bones from one of you? i’m desprate for 44 pray, and i’m low on money to buy b bones with, as i’m typing this, i’m trainin my range on moss giants and burying there bones. Also, heres a tip, wait till you have a full invo of bones before you bury, that way, you might get a random event ={D(hitler)

    Posted September 14, 2008 at 8:22 am

    lots of people tell me todo the bone thing at chaos altar but when i kill moss giants at crandor it goes up faster.and when u wear monks robe and saradomin stuff when u bury bones wats the difference than just burying bones with armour on.

  28. bobcow64
    Posted September 17, 2008 at 2:02 am

    if u want to level up prayer, just go to the wilderness and find a greater demon,before they attacked you, use lvl 50 mage on it so it cant move(snare) for 5 seconds…then use the 5 holy symbols on them so they become lesser demons….U will get 28400 xp for prayer (if u killed the lesser demon) because u turn a Greater demon into lesser.

    If you got any questions,just add me(bobcow64) into your friendlist or join my clan…i will teach you…but since i have to much noob in my friend list i dont know if you can contact just add zeal235..thats my noob account..ill show u how to get 99 prayer fast……….

    Well obviously, this guide is really old. As known that it was made in 2007 and is now mid 2009, there is different ways.For Members,

    1.)If you are a high enough level, kill dragons and bury their bones and sell the dragon hides. I believe that green dragonhides are 1,500 coins each. Dragon bones are great expierience and great money. (Sorry I spelled expierience wrong.)

    For non-members, if you are a low level simply just kill chickens,goblins or large rats and bury those bones. Or, like the author said, kill level 28 hill giants. (Note: Hill Giants are west of Varrock and just east of the river to Barbarian Village. You need a brass key to enter.) Hope I could help! ~Bones829(Real runescape account.)- level 79 at the moment.

    Posted June 1, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    I thought the guide was good but i thought that it needed a little more details for all the noobs out there. like where the gobling house is and that u can get into the edgeville dungeon by going through that house that u need a brass key for. by the way for u f2p runescape players u can save money by buying normal bones instead of b bones to get your XP up. u get 16 XP prayer for buying 4 normal bones for 276GP and only 15XP prayer for buying b bones that cost 376GP

    Posted August 16, 2009 at 12:41 am

    No offense, this guide wasn’t that good. It looks like its for noobs(newbies, not being offensive). This might be good for up to level 30 prayer, but all the good (and handy prayers) are up to lvl 43 (protect from melee). To be honest, if you extended the guide a bit more, it would be better.

  50. Posted September 11, 2009 at 6:26 am

    wow that helped a lot wth ge buys 20 lvls in 2 hrs (w00t)

  51. Tjhllax
    Posted September 29, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    LOL u can use a dwarf multicannon on green drags, I am lvl 50 member and get full inventory in like 3 minutes. Keep the hides and bury the bones unless u r poor then sell both

  52. go to hell
    Posted October 14, 2009 at 4:19 am

    That is all.

  54. Good guide maxx
    Posted January 3, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    It’s a good guide but also remeber your getting xp for attk, str, def. Or whatever method you are using. And don’t bitch about it taking so long. If you have a problem takeyour ass and become a member. And this truely is the only way for a non-member too level up prayer.

    Posted January 23, 2010 at 12:19 am

    this is the whole guide in a few words: get bones and bury them!
    p.s add me!

    Posted January 28, 2010 at 1:20 am

  57. Loki
    Posted February 4, 2010 at 10:38 am

  58. Posted March 1, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    wow…no offence but tahts the most noobiest guide ive read. i skilled woodcutting, fishing, mining and runecrafting to 99. took me a year but made 600M. i have 92 prayer now. it only took me 300m worth of dragon bones. fast… and yes shadowlass is my runescape acc name

  59. Posted March 1, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    oh and by the way, members have a new prayer book called ancient curse prayers. requires lvl 50 and upwards of prayer

  60. jj
    Posted April 24, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    the right way to Level up is mems bury baby blue drag bones

  61. I pwn u noobs
    Posted April 28, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    LOL this is an epic fail guide
    this is members
    For 43 prayer:
    1. Buy around 200 dragon bones this is around 1.1M
    2. Go to Yanille in a house party world
    3. look for a g altar
    4. use the d bones with the g altar do this till u run out
    this is from level one
