Prayer renewal detail.png

Prayer renewal potions are created at level 94 Herblore. They slowly restore Prayer points over five minutes and ten seconds.

These are created by using Clean fellstalk and Morchella mushroom with a Vial of water. This awards 190 Herblore experience. If making the potion in Morytania with the elite Morytania achievements completed and wearing Morytania legs 4, players have a 20% chance of making a 4 dose instead of 3 dose potion.

They may not fully substitute prayer potions due to their delayed effect, but they restore many prayer points over time, more than any instant-restore prayer potion. The amount is about 25%-65% more than a super prayer potion (the disparity is less at higher prayer levels). Hence, they are useful in any situation requiring prayer.

Prayer points are restored one at a time over 6 minutes. The rate of restore and total points restored per dose rises with Prayer level. Drinking another dose while the effect is active only refreshes the timer to 6 minutes, wasting the remaining time of the previous dose. Drinking other prayer restoration potions will not affect this potion's effects. Carrying a holy wrench in the inventory increases the total prayer points restored (30 more at level 99 Prayer), over the same duration.

The effect timer depletes while logged out. While logged out, players do not gain prayer points.

Flask[edit | edit source]

This potion can be made into a Prayer renewal flask by using at least six doses of it with a Potion flask.

Prayer renewal strategy[edit | edit source]

Consider Super prayer renewal potion. It is more effective and may even be more economical. At 99 Prayer, price to restore each prayer point is 9.28 coins for Renewals and 5.35 coins for Super renewals.

The prayer renewal potion (or flask) is useful in situations where the player will be using prayer points constantly or frequently, such as using protection or deflection prayers around aggressive foes. Prayer renewals are useful in situations where the player must restore a large amount of prayer points without banking, such as in the Fight Kiln.

The prayer renewal potion is, by itself, less useful in situations where the player needs to regain many prayer points quickly, as its effects dribble in over five minutes. For example, players using multiple powerful prayers at the same time (like a protection/deflection prayer along with Piety/Turmoil) will drain prayer much faster than the potion can renew it. However, using this potion along with other prayer-gaining potions (or flasks) can be useful, such as a Prayer potion, Super restore potion, or Super prayer potion. The prayer renewal potion gives a steady stream of prayer points, while the other potion is used to top off prayer points when needed. Prayer potions are typically used as the adjunct potion, as super restore potions are expensive while super prayer potions are untradeable and thus used only by players with high-level Herblore skills. Super restore potions are useful in situations where the player needs to periodically restore stats in addition to prayer, such as when players also use Saradomin brews.

A good use for them is with the Amulet of Zealots, as they will compensate for the -5 Prayer bonus it has.

Some players drink prayer renewals in conjunction with overloads when fighting boss monsters. Both potions work for six minutes, and the prayer renewal's thirty-second warning will also indicate that the overload is about to run out. The holy overload, due to it being a combination of the two potions, has this effect.

Prayer-restoring potions[edit | edit source]

If a potion is untradeable the price of the ingredients is used instead. Prayer points needs to be rounded down after using the formulas.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The 4 dose version of this potion was sold for over 150,000 each during the first day of its release.
  • The Reverence Aura increases the amount gained from one potion, but does not speed up the restoration rate.
  • Previously, players would receive a warning message 30 seconds before their renewal potion runs out, but only if player's game messages are set to "all" and not "filter". This has been since fixed and now displays warning text in blue, even if game messages are set to "filter".
  • Due to the timed nature of this potion, a great use for it is to remind players when to re-boost their combat stats back up with the super or extreme attack, strength, and defence potions.
  • The effect of the potion can be taken into Daemonheim: drink a one dose potion, drop the empty vial, and enter the dungeon and when players use prayer inside Daemonheim the prayer renewal will continue to restore prayer.
  • Wearing +28 prayer bonus equipment with 99 prayer and utilising the Protect Melee prayer while having the effects of a prayer renewal potion active, a player's prayer points will not decrease nor increase for 5 minutes. At level 75 Prayer players will need 42 prayer bonus equipment in order to not lose prayer points while having the effects of a prayer renewal potion active and the Protect Melee prayer on. If the Reverence aura is on, a player's prayer points can slightly increase. The same holds for Deflect Melee.
  • The prayer renewal (4) has a very similar inventory image to the Hag's poison from The Feud.
  • The potion still has the usage sound after the update on 31 January 2012.
  • It is not recommended to make Fellstalk (unf) potions using the herb-water vial method for profit. Other herbs would be a much better choice.
  • Prayer renewal potions have become a common way for high-level players to level Herblore, as they are relatively cheap to make, yet provide a large amount of experience. Due to this, prices may fluctuate sporadically.
  • Prayer renewal potions are the only potions that do not have a shared buy limit with other doses unlike other potions.
