Praying at altar

A player prays to the gods.

An altar is interactive scenery that allows a player to recharge their Prayer points. By clicking on it, the player will kneel by the altar and it will recharge their prayer points. To locate an altar, look for the altar icon (Altar map icon) on the world map or minimap.

Altar locationsEdit


  • The Tribute stone, east of the Falador lodestone
  • Inside the Lumbridge Church, south of the Lumbridge Castle.
  • Bandos's remains east of the Captured temple and north of Falador.
  • In Duel Arena lobby.
  • In white knights castle in the middle of Falador city. Second floor on the east side.
  • In Varrock, in the church in the north-east corner of the city
  • In the Chaos Temple at level 12 Wilderness, south-east of the Graveyard of Shadows
  • The Prayer Guild, upstairs in the Edgeville Monastery, just west of Edgeville. It can only be entered by players with a Prayer level of 31. Praying at the altar boosts the player's prayer points 20 above their regular amount.
  • Inside the Black Knight's Fortress.

Reaching altarsEdit

These altars are reasonably accessible by "fast" transportation means, such as teleportations.

Altar location Transport method
Tribute stone north of Falador Teleporting to the Falador Lodestone brings the player extremely close to the tribute stone to the east, which also functions as a small Summoning obelisk.
Kandarin Monastery south of Ardougne The Ardougne cloak 1 may be used to teleport directly to it. It is also possible to use the fairy ring code D•J•P to the Tower of Life and then go west to the monastery.
Church at Lumbridge The church is very close to the Lumbridge lodestone.
Altar in Lletya A crystal teleport seed can be used to teleport very close to the altar.
Chapel room of player's house If the player has built an altar in their home, the Teleport to House can be used to quickly reach it.
Sulphur spring in Oo'glog Using the Oo'glog lodestone, the pool is only a short distance away.
The Vampyric altar in Darkmeyer Drakan Medallion teleport (Darkmeyer option), the Altar is a short distance away.



  • Previously, the Altar of Chaos did not recharge prayer points fully. It restored 2 less (now equivalent to 20) prayer points than the player's maximum. Having 2 or less maximum Prayer would fully recharge your points, however.
  • Altars located in a player's house can be used to train Prayer. Simply use any bones on an altar in a Player-owned house to gain experience. When you use bones on a player's altar it will say, "The gods are very pleased with your offering", "The gods are pleased with your offering" or "The gods accept your offering". Altars inside Daemonheim work similar to that in a Player-owned house, giving four times the experience received from burying.
  • If a player uses an item on an altar, a message appears saying "You fear the wrath of the gods!" However, this will not happen at the altar to Seren in Lletya or the Vampyric altar in Darkmeyer.
  • There was an altar in the basement of the Wizard's Tower before its graphical update on 28 November 2012. While it still existed, it was used in the Restless Ghost quest. After a patch note update, it had no use until its removal.
