Accursed ashes are guaranteed drops from Lesser demons, Greater demons, Death spawns (summoned by Nechryael), Fungal magi, and the Evil spirit from Rum Deal. When "scattered", accursed ashes give 12.5 Prayer experience, slightly less than their big bone counterparts. They can also be used with the Ectofuntus for 50 prayer experience or a gilded altar in a player-owned house for 43.7 Prayer experience. They cannot be used in cremation.
If an accursed or infernal urn is in the inventory, the urn will be charged in place of receiving the drop. Accursed urns can store up to 25 dropped accursed ashes and yield 375 prayer experience when teleported. Infernal urns will be full after 125 accursed ashes and give 1,875 prayer experience. That equals to 15 prayer experience for each set of accursed ashes, the same amount as big bones. Carrying urns while killing lesser or greater demons could be useful to get additional prayer experience. However, as lesser demons, the lowest levelled monster that drop accursed ashes for free-to-play players, are far stronger than Hill giants, most commonly killed for their drop of big bones, this way of training is not recommended. Ashes have a slightly lower price on the Grand Exchange but are much slower.
Prior to the release of impious and accursed ashes, free-to-play players could only train Prayer by burying bones.
Based off rough calculations, free-to-play players can expect around 50,000 to 65,000 experience per hour from scattering accursed ashes.
