Gilded altar

The gilded altar is the best altar which can be built in the chapel of a player-owned house. It requires level 75 Construction to build and uses 2 marble blocks, 2 bolts of cloth and 4 gold leaves to build. The total cost to buy all the materials for the altar is 1,160,642 coins, or 1,171,300 coins if purchased from the stonemason and the Construction supplies shop.

Prayer cape can substitute for the first age cape if owned, while also providing both gilded altar burners being always lit.

It is possible to boost to build a gilded altar from as low as level 65 Construction by using a crystal saw (+3 boost to level), a sculpting chisel (+1), and orange spicy stew with three doses of Orange spice (+6). However this is difficult to achieve due to the random (-6/+6) boost that the orange spicy stew provides. At level 68 Construction, the altar can be built by using the boosts from the crystal saw, the sculpting chisel and a player-owned house cup of tea, obtained from teak shelves 2 (+3), granting an overall +7 level boost.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

The altar provides 250% extra Prayer experience when remains are offered. Each incense burner lit with a clean marrentill provides an additional 50% extra experience for a total of 350% extra experience per offering. These bonuses make gilded altars a popular choice for Prayer training.

Once the altar has been created, anybody who visits the house, whether they be the home owner or a guest, has access to the altar and the bonus experience. Players open up their houses to those wishing to train their Prayer efficiently, situating the chapel to be next to the exit portal with a Quest Hall containing a mounted amulet of glory nearby so players can teleport to Al Kharid for quick banking. Ironmen cannot interact with another player's altar though.

Players advertise their open altars on the official RuneScape forums. World 31 is the official world for open gilded altars. Open gilded altars are most commonly found at Taverley due to the close proximity of the lodestone to the house portal and lack of quest requirements.

During Double XP Weekends, altars only give their usual experiences, and do not benefit from additional experience boosting sources such as bonus experience or experience-boosting sets. It is generally considered a waste of time to use altars during this period due to worse than usual experience rates and the boosted experience rates in other skills.

Players who have their premier artefact 10% XP boost activated while offering bones on their gilded altar, might encounter a situation when they do not benefit from any other boost type (like using up existing bonus XP or enjoying the boost from a pulse core). This might be a bug and can be overcome by deactivating the premier artefact XP boost.
