- RuneScape Wiki
|The content on this page is mostly available for all players.
There could be some parts within this section that are for members only. These will be indicated accordingly with a icon.
Each of the prayers can be turned on or off individually, and while in use will grant your character the advantages as listed above. To activate a prayer, left-click the icon in question and it will have a light appear around it, which lets you know that the prayer is in use. To deactivate it, simply click on it again.
At any one time you may have a single protect prayer (Protect from Magic, Protect from Melee, Protect from Missiles) active, as well as one of the following options:
- Strength and Attack prayers (only one of each at a time)
- One Magic prayer
- One Ranged prayer
- Protect from Summoning
So you can only use one attack-method prayer at a time (Attack and Strength combined count as melee-style here), and only one Defence prayer.

While any of your prayers are active, your prayer points will start to slowly drain towards zero. The more prayers you use at once and the more powerful they are, the faster your points will be drained. When you run out of prayer points, all prayers will automatically stop working and you will need to either pray at an altar or drink a Prayer potion before you are able to use them again (if you die this will also reset them). As your Prayer level increases the amount of prayer points you have available to you will also increase. Note that any reduction to your Prayer skill itself will naturally heal over time.
* These prayers cannot be used at the same time as each other.
~ Hold time is not reduced against Ancient Magick ice spells.
