Protect from Missiles
|Protect from Missiles|
|Released||24 May 2001 (Update)|
|Drain rate||20 points per minute|
|Effect||Protection from ranged attacks - 100% resistance to NPC-dealt attacks, 40% to other players|
Protect from Missiles offers players 100% resistance to most NPC ranged attacks, and 40% resistance to player-dealt ranged attacks. It depletes prayer at a rate of 1 point per 3 seconds (or 5 game ticks).
Protection prayers only reduce damage. They don't have an effect on accuracy.
Flicking[edit | edit source]
A strategy to use as few prayer points as possible without losing the respective effect is known as prayer flicking. Players may turn on their chosen prayer just before the enemy attacks, and then turn off the prayer just after the attack has finished. If a player does this accurately, no prayer points will be lost (as the prayer will be activated whilst damage is calculated on a game tick, but not for multiple consecutive ticks that would cause prayer drain).
