The Ancient Curses

The Ancient Curses are a set of prayers obtained as a reward after completing The Temple at Senntisten. They consist of prayers ranging between levels 50 - 95 Prayer. Prayers of this set include combat skill boosts, stat drainers, and damage recoilers.

After The Light Within, as a reward, 7 additional prayers are unlocked. These Seren Prayers are more focused on players performing supportive and skilling roles, rather than direct combat.

Switching Between Prayers and CursesEdit

Altar of Zaros

The altar of Zaros where players can pray to gain the power of the Ancient Curses.

The main altar that activates the Ancient Curses is the Zarosian altar in the temple beneath the Digsite. After completing the elite Falador Tasks players can use an Ancient Hymnal on the altar in the White Knights' Castle to convert it to Zaros, allowing for activation of the Curses from that altar as well. Players who have completed Plague's End can use the Elven grimoire found within the Cadarn Clan district of Prifddinas.

Players can switch to the standard prayerbook again at any altar by default. One may choose to remove the option to switch to the standard prayerbook at normal altars. This will prevent the option menu from appearing, but to use the standard prayerbook again, the player will have to travel to the Digsite altar (or the Falador one). When the player has removed the option to revert to the standard prayerbook from normal altars, they may restore it at the Zarosian altars.

TriviaEdit

  • The Turmoil/Anguish/Torment animation will be played if the player tries to activate any of the Seren prayers without completing The Light Within.
