Wyvern bones detail.png

Wyvern bones are dropped by wyverns and skeletal wyverns, very dangerous monsters found in the Asgarnian Ice Caves. Wyvern bones give 50 Prayer experience when buried, 175 when used on a Gilded altar (with two lit incense burners), and 200 experience when used to worship the Ectofuntus.

Wyvern bones can also be ground up into Wyvern bonemeal at the Ectofuntus, or crushed into ground wyvern bones using the "Grind" right-click option - both of which can be used to make Super prayer potions, though only bonemeal can be used at the ectofuntus. These are the only bones with the "Grind" option.

Players can quite rarely receive Wyvern bones as a reward from the Soul Wars minigame by selecting the Gamble option. Doing this might award a player with 16 Wyvern bones. These bones can also be looted from Zombie impling jars.

Cost and XP analysis[edit | edit source]

Bury Gilded altar[a 1] or
Chaos Temple
Ectofuntus Cremation
XP 50 175 200 225 (Total) 125 (Prayer) + 100 (FM)

  1. ^ This table assumes that two burners are lit while using the gilded altar, and excludes the cost of clean marrentill.

To go from 1-99 Prayer by only burying wyvern bones would take 260,688.6 bones and cost 4,589,429,845 coins. If a gilded altar is used, it would take 74,482.5 bones and cost 1,311,273,215 coins, and if the ectofuntus is used then 65,172.2 bones would be used at a cost of 1,147,370,665 coins.

These are not commonly used to train prayer. This is because dragon bones give substantially more exp (72 base exp for dragon bones, compared to 50 base exp for wyvern bones). Currently, dragon bones cost 2,056 coins while wyvern bones cost 17,605 coins.
