A player using Protect from Missiles

Protect from Missiles, more commonly referred to as Protect from Ranged, is accessible at level 40 Prayer.

When used, the player receives a 50% damage reduction from Ranged attacks used by monsters and players. When using Protect from Missiles, it will drain the player's Prayer by 2.5 points per second, which is equal to the rate of Deflect Missiles, the Ancient Curses equivalent. Players with this prayer activated will have an image of an arrow above their character.

Players should note that this prayer can not be used in conjunction with Protect from Melee or Protect from Magic; however, Protect from Summoning can still be used with this prayer.

History[edit | edit source]

On RuneScape Classic, this prayer blocks out ranged and magic attacks with 100% effectiveness. As NPCs do not attack with magic or ranged, this prayer is restricted to PvP activities, such as the Wilderness.

Prior to the Evolution of Combat, along with Protect from Melee, Protect from Magic, and their curse counterparts, this prayer blocked 100% of damage from monsters and 40% of damage from players of their respective combat style.

  • patch 15 June 2020 (Update):
    • Protection prayers now have descriptions that match the effect they have when used by NPCs.
  • patch 10 February 2009 (Update):
    • A bug has been fixed involving combat with NPCs while using prayers and the divine spirit shield. You should no longer lose Prayer points when you negate melee or ranged damage with active protection Prayer effects rather than the shield.
