Prayer urns are pretty niche at the moment: they're not particularly effective for prayer training, they only work on a small handful of monsters, and one a player has an attuned ectoplasmator they'll never want to use them again. On the other hand, it can be obnoxiously difficult to get an ectoplasmator, especially as an ironman, and they're very important to doing many slayer assignment efficiently.

I suggest that Prayer urns be reworked into consumable attuned ectoplasmators: make them automatically scatter demonic ashes and give prayer XP for killing ghosts, and allow them to trigger dungeoneering prayer necklaces as normal. In order to balance them against the Ectoplasmator, increase the number of ectoplasmator charges per ghostly essence and/or increase the prayer XP returns for using one, and change the runes require to finish the prayer urns to chaos/death/souls respectively.

This will reduce reliance on an annual event for an important piece of equipment and revitalize an underused item.

I already posted about that. They xp from prayer urns is very poor. Near useless, in fact. They can't be used to reasonably afk train prayer, since by the time a player is geared enough to afk demons, they'd be better served for both time and money running cheap bones to gilded altars, using seren stones, or afking vyres.

Right but the ectoplasmator does the same thing (auto-scatter ashes), so really the trade off is 20% more prayer xp or infinite prayer points, which allows them to be much more easily afked.

The problem is, while 20% sounds like a lot, scattering ashes and burying bones is an incredibly inefficient way of training prayer.

I didn't consider f2p. That does at least give the urns an actual purpose, but I still think that reducing reliance on a very rare untradable drop or an once a year event for a very important piece of equipment would be healthy for the game.
