A gilded altar is the highest level altar that can be built in the Chapel of a player-owned house. It can be used to recharge Prayer. When Bones or Demonic ashes are used with the altar, the player gains 250% of the experience normally received from simply burying the bones. Incense burners add an additive 50% experience per lit burner, achieving a maximum additive 100% bonus when both burners are lit (and a total of 350% of the normal experience received). All incense burners give the same amount of experience and require a clean marrentill and a tinderbox to light. Because of these bonuses, the gilded altar is a popular choice for players wishing to train Prayer.
The gilded altar can be theoretically built as early as level 65 by using a crystal saw (+3 boost to level), a sculpting chisel (+1), and orange spicy stew with three doses of Orange spice (+6). It should be noted that a +6 bonus from spicy stew is extremely rare, and that reaching level 66 and then attempting to get a +5 bonus is advised.
Players often advertise their open altars on the official RuneScape forums in the Community section, on the Events thread. Also, Yanille world 31 hosts open altars which is commonly used for training. Rimmington rarely hosts altars, as it is more commonly used for regular house parties such as hangouts, dungeons, etc.
