The Edgeville Monastery (sometimes referred to as the Prayer Guild even though it is not an official guild) is a two-story building north-east of Falador, south of the Black Knights' Fortress and west of Edgeville. A combat bracelet can be used to teleport inside the monastery, and is the fastest method to get there. Five monks wander inside, both in the courtyard and inside the building.
Players can get there by various methods:
- A combat bracelet will teleport you directly there.
- Using the Ancient Magicks spell, Lassar Teleport will teleport you to Ice Mountain, leaving only a short walk east to the monastery.
- Using an amulet of glory teleport to Edgeville then travelling directly west.
The four monks that spawn around the courtyard are an extremely popular training spot for Defence pures due to the monks' high health and low Defence, as well as their healing powers; pures could train indefinitely without food. It is recommended for most free-to-play pures as a safe and effective training method.
Ground floor[edit | edit source]
First floor[edit | edit source]
To enter the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US], players require a Prayer level of 31.
This floor contains various decorations, more monks, Brother Jered, an altar, a Kharid Scorpion for the Scorpion Catcher quest, and the monk's robe top and bottom spawn. Players should not pick up the Kharid scorpion, as doing so will deal them 3 damage. The only way to get the scorpion is by using a scorpion cage on it during the quest Scorpion Catcher.
Brother Jered can bless unblessed symbols for those who do not possess Membership, the Holy book, Book of balance or the required Prayer level of 50 to bless them theirselves, making them into holy symbols.
Praying at the altar fully recharges a player's prayer, in addition to giving a +2 bonus over the player's max prayer. This +2 boost makes it the best altar available to free players.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The white and purple roses in the monastery garden are likely a reference to Gregor Mendel, a monastery monk in 1884 who discovered modern genetics through the cross breeding of pea plants.
