Powder of defence detail.png

Powder of defence is a prayer powder that provides an additional +2 Defence boost when using the Thick Skin, Rock Skin, or Steel Skin prayers for 30 minutes when scattered, destroying the powder in the progress. It can be created by grinding 15 plain whirligig shells.

Interacting with empty flower baskets in Het's Oasis allows the player to put certain types of flowers in the basket to lure different types of whirligigs. Having 0-24 flowers in a flower basket will lure plain whirligigs. When caught, the whirligigs will drop their shells, which can then be ground into powder of defence. The buff is lost on death.

Scattering the powder awards 0.5 Prayer experience.
