OSRS F2P Prayer Training Guide

This post represents the Free-to-play version of our original OSRS Prayer Guide. All of the methods found in this guide can be used for training prayer in free-to-play worlds.

Fastest F2P Prayer Training

Below you will see the methods used to gain the fastest experience and 1-99 prayer in f2p.

Free-to-play Quest EXP Rewards

At level 1, players can immediately complete a very short f2p quest called the Restless Ghost. This quest will provide players with 1,125 prayer experience when completed. There are no requirements, making it ideal for starting off your prayer training in f2p.

Power-burying bones and Scattering Ashes

The fastest f2p prayer experience can be obtained by burying a large volume of bones or ashes repetitively. These should all be bought on the Grand Exchange. However, its important to note, this method is extremely expensive and often unviable for many players to train in the long-term.

The best method involves burying big bones, while simultaneously scattering vile ashes. As these actions can be done at the same time in one single game tick. Experience rates go as high as 116,000 experience per hour.

Moving to members

Since prayer is a buyable skill, there aren’t many ways to train it for cheap efficiently. If you have the ability to purchase a bond and/or move to members world. Then this would be the best thing to do. As members worlds benefit from training methods that are significantly cheaper and faster.

Alternative F2p Prayer Training

Below are some alternative training methods for f2p players. They may not be the quickest, but provide some alternative benefits, usually relating to profitability.

Collecting & Burying Bones

The best place to do this method is at the Bone Yard in the wilderness. The method involves travelling to the area and collecting the bones in the area. Be aware of aggressive skeletons if you’re low combat.

Once you’ve collected an inventory, move away from the skeletons and begin burying the bones for experience. This is a free method for training in f2p, and is good for ironmen players. However, it can be very slow to train and isn’t recommended for training to 99.

Combat Training

Combat is one of the most important aspects of OSRS. So, you’ll likely already be training all of your combat skills, from melee to ranged and magic. Therefore, this allows you to pick up the bones after each monster you kill and bury them. Effectively providing a passive method to gain f2p prayer experience.
