Burnt bones detail.png

Burnt bones are used to train the Prayer skill. When buried they give 4.5 Prayer experience. They can be found in the Demonic Ruins and Red Dragon Isle in the Wilderness, or obtained as a drop from humans in The Zamorakian Undercity. It is not possible to obtain these by using regular bones on a source of heat such as a fire.

They are no different to regular bones except that they have a burnt appearance. It is not recommended to train prayer with burnt bones, since regular bones give the same amount of experience and are much easier to obtain.
