Armour/Prayer armour

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Prayer armour is used to slow the rate at which Prayer points drain when praying. Unlike the other three general categories of armour, there are few items within it that can be considered uniquely Prayer-related. Many shields, magic robes, and types of metal armour can also be considered Prayer armour.

Prayer equipment[edit | edit source]

Prayer robes[edit | edit source]

Priest, Monk, Shade, Zamorak, Druid

Priest gowns and Zamorak robes give the lowest Prayer bonus, while Druid robes give a slightly higher bonus. Monk's robes give the highest Prayer bonus in Free-to-play. Monk's robes are very popular when Player killing. Prayer robes are not used often in minigames (nor are they recommended to be used in them). The wearer may find themselves often coming under attack from different attack styles in a multi-combat area and, being able to use only one protection prayer at a time, this basically ensures a swift death (i.e. a player with monk's robes using Protect from Melee against a warrior coming under fire by a ranger, and being unable to protect from both).

God books[edit | edit source]

The Holy book.
The Book of balance.
The Unholy book.

Holy (Saradomin), Balance (Guthix), Unholy (Zamorak), Law (Armadyl), War (Bandos), Darkness (Zaros)

The God books are often used when using Prayer. These are obtained by completing the Horror from the Deep quest. They then must be completed by adding God pages obtained from Treasure Trails or by trading other players. The incomplete books give a +5 Prayer bonus, while completed books also give defensive and offensive bonuses.

Temple Knight armour[edit | edit source]

An initiate sallet
A proselyte sallet

Initiate, Proselyte

Initiate armour and Proselyte armour are earned by completing the Recruitment Drive and Slug Menace quests respectively. Initiate armour has the same stats as Mithril armour plus a Prayer bonus, and Proselyte armour has the same stats as its Adamant armour counterparts, with an even larger prayer bonus. The Proselyte hauberk and cuisse/tasset give the highest Prayer bonus available for the torso and leg armours respectively.

Vestment robes[edit | edit source]

A Saradomin Cloak.
A Guthix Cloak.
A Zamorak Cloak.

Saradomin, Guthix, Zamorak,
Mitre (Hat), Robe top, Robe bottom, Cloak, Stole (Amulet), Crozier (Weapon)

The Vestment robe sets are made up of six pieces. Mitres give the highest Prayer bonus for any headgear and stoles give the second highest Prayer bonus of any amulet, behind only the Dragonbone necklace. Vestment robe tops and legs give a Prayer bonus equivalent to Monk's robes, but also have a small magic bonus. The croziers have equivalent stats to a battlestaff with an additional prayer bonus, but are not often used as they do not provide unlimited runes. Vestments can be obtained from Treasure Trails, or by trading with another player.

Verac's armour[edit | edit source]

Verac's helm.png

Helm, Brassard, Plateskirt, Flail

Verac's armour is a high-level Melee armour that gives a Prayer bonus. It gives the same prayer bonuses as Initiate armour, except for Verac's plateskirt, which gives slightly less, however its defensive bonuses are significantly higher. When all of Verac's set is worn (including Verac's flail), the player has a chance of hitting through protection prayers via its special, Defiler. The set effect coupled with the Prayer bonus makes this armour very popular when fighting the Kalphite Queen and in PvP. Verac's armour is obtained from the Barrows minigame or by trading with another player. Like other Barrows armour, Verac's armour has to be repaired after 15 hours of Combat. Coupled with an Amulet of the damned, Verac's set offers the best Prayer bonuses in the game, surpassing Proselyte armour.

Ancient ceremonial robes[edit | edit source]

Ancient ceremonial mask.png

Ancient ceremonial robes are a set of Zarosian robes. The set is made up of five pieces and do not have any requirements to wear. The robe top and bottoms offer equivalent prayer bonuses to monk robes. All monsters in the Ancient Prison excluding Nex can drop pieces of the set.

Best P2P Prayer armour setup[edit | edit source]

The optimal setup for Prayer is a Proselyte hauberk and cuisse/tasset(+14), a mitre(+5), a Dragonbone necklace/Bonecrusher necklace(+12), a Rada's blessing 4(+2), Soul Cape(+8), Void knight mace or crozier(+6), a God book, Broodoo shield or Falador shield 4(+5), Devout Boots(+5), Holy wraps(+3), and Ring of the gods (i)(+8). This setup results in a +68 Prayer bonus.
