Impious ashes detail.png

Impious ashes are a 100% drop from icefiends, imps, killerwatts, pyrefiends and spellwisps. They give 4 Prayer experience when scattered, 4.8 when collected in a prayer urn, or 16 when offered at the ectofuntus.

When the player has a prayer urn in the inventory while killing an NPC that drops this type of ashes, they will automatically be transferred into the urn. Each impious ashes fills an impious urn by 4%, an accursed urn by 1.28% or an infernal urn by 0.26%. A full urn will yield 120, 375 or 1,875 Prayer experience, depending on type, effectively increasing the output per ashes to 4.8 experience. It should be noted that the ashes cannot be put into the urn manually. Prior to the release of impious and accursed ashes, F2P players could only train Prayer by burying bones.

Lower levelled players may consider this as a source of income as some of creatures that drop these ashes are easy to kill. While imps are the weakest, they are generally far from banks and spread too thin to kill efficiently. Killing spellwisps is a decent way to make money due to proximity to bank deposit.

40 impious ashes are a possible prize from Treasure Hunter. When choosing the option to convert this prize to coins, players receive 1000 coins during the Double Cash period, implying that normally they would be converted to 500 coins, which is 102,820 less than selling them on the Grand Exchange.
