The twisted bird skull necklace is a Dungeoneering reward. It is the cheapest bone necklace available, costing 8,500 Dungeoneering tokens. This item requires level 30 Prayer and level 30 Dungeoneering to obtain and equip.

When worn, this necklace restores Prayer points when burying certain bones:

Note that manually scattering ashes will not restore prayer points when using the necklace, nor will ghosts killed in conjunction with the ectoplasmator. Only ghosts killed or ashes scattered automatically by the attuned ectoplasmator will trigger the effects of the necklace.

The necklace may be of use in the Wilderness, as there is a large supply of bones usually available that can be used to restore Prayer points, if an altar is not within reach. If player killing, it is unwise to bring this with you because the space required to hold bones is better served holding high-healing food or potions.

The necklace can be used together with the bonecrusher to gain 50 Prayer points every time you kill a monster that drops bones as remains, or with the attuned ectoplasmator when killing ghosts or demons. This can be useful to sustain prayers for longer periods of time in combat.

In theory, this necklace is an inexpensive alternative to training on weak monsters, if the player has high enough Constitution and the Redemption prayer. By burying bones it is possible to gain just 100 Prayer points to trigger redemption when life points are low. However this method can be used only by members and doesn't work with players with a low Constitution level.

This necklace is surpassed by the split dragontooth necklace and the demon horn necklace in terms of their prayer bonuses and magnitude of effects.

Players with a higher combat level often use this amulet in free-to-play as a replacement for the prayer potions in members. As bones are less in value than swordfish, it makes the amulet an excellent way for PvM, if the player is short on money.

If killed in the wilderness, the amulet will appear on the ground. It can be retrieved if you make it back before it disappears. The player who killed you cannot pick it up or see it.
