Chewed bones detail.png

Chewed bones are obtained exclusively as a drop from mithril dragons in the Ancient Cavern at a rate of 3/128. No other monsters in the Ancient Cavern will drop chewed bones, and looting the skeletons won't give chewed bones either (only mangled bones).

When these bones are put on a pyre ship and burnt (requires a tinderbox, axe and any type of non-pyre log, blisterwood logs do not work), they will summon a Barbarian spirit, who may thank the player for putting his soul to rest with an item. The reward may be a dragon full helmet, various potions, runes or projectile ammunition. Players may kill mithril dragons in the hopes of obtaining a dragon full helmet drop; if unsuccessful, they can take any gained chewed bones to be burned in a pyre ship for another chance at gaining a dragon full helmet. Note that using higher level logs does not increase chances of receiving a dragon full helm.

Burning chewed bones via a pyre ship provides an experience bonus (300%) to any bones buried for the next bones, the amount varying by logs burnt. The player will receive a message saying, "You gain extra prayer experience as the ancestral barbarian spirits watch over you." This bonus accumulates and is not lost upon death. Burning 2 chewed bones consecutively provides a bonus for burying twice as many bones as burning one chewed bone. The Bonecrusher doesn't automatically crush chewed bone drops. Burning Chewed bones on a pyre ship constructed with magic logs is a requirement for the Kandarin Elite Diary.
