Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Reinforced dragon bones were changed to their current name on 10 April 2017 due to gemstone dragons dropping hardened dragon bones, which were previously adamant dragon bones. This change was implemented to allow more monsters to drop these bones, such as the Dragonkin Laboratory's bosses.
  • There are multiple ways to use reinforced dragon bones to get from 1-99 Prayer:
  • A player choosing to use a gilded altar with lit burners and no other experience boosts would spend 314,139,587 if all the bones were bought at the current medium price on the Grand Exchange.
    • Additionally, the first bone would take them straight to level 7 Prayer.
    • Using the ectofuntus would cost 274,872,139, but it would take far longer to do so.
    • Cremating the bones would cost 439,795,422, and would additionally give 10,427,545 Firemaking experience.
    • Simply burying the bones would cost 1,099,488,556.
