Prayer potion detail

A Prayer potion is a potion made with Herblore that restores 72-317 Prayer points (70 + 25% of total Prayer points) per dose. It appears as a vial containing an aquamarine fluid. Below level 62 Prayer, this potion provides more Prayer restoration than a super restore, although typically super restores are used to restore other stats rather than simply Prayer, partially because they are more expensive.

Members can make a prayer potion at level 38 Herblore by adding a clean ranarr to a vial of water, and then mixing in snape grass. This makes a potion with three doses, and grants 87.5 experience.

Prayer potions are almost always in high demand due largely to the common use of protection prayers and smiting as a defence in combat. Having a way of restoring Prayer points in the middle of battle, without the need of an altar, is very convenient.

For players who have completed Rum Deal and have a holy wrench in their pocket slot, 10-30 additional prayer points will be restored per dose of prayer potion. Unfortunately, for the wrench to provide more prayer than an additional prayer potion would have, a player must have both nearly a full inventory of prayer potions and a prayer level of at most around 60. However, the wrench can still be a useful asset for its money-saving properties in situations in which inventory space can be spared.

Assuming the player purchases ranarr potion (unf) and snape grass and with almost no distractions, creates 2,200 potions per hour, this would give approximately 192,500 experience per hour.

Adding wyvern bonemeal to this potion will make a super prayer potion.

  • Unfinished ranarr potions may be substituted, and may be cheaper to buy. The current price is 2,750gp per unfinished potion or 2,813gp for both materials. This also allows the first and xp-less step to be skipped, slightly speeding the process.
