If you have completed the aforementioned quests, you will need 51,656 dragon or wyvern bones to get from level 32 Prayer to 99.
Burying bones and scattering ashes To bury bones or scatter ashes, simply left-click on the bone or ashes in your inventory. Many players with a high Construction level choose to build a gilded altar with incense burners in their house as this is a much faster way to gain Prayer experience than any other.
Players can use Simon who is just on the other side of the temple walls to bank and restock on bones . Roughly 1,400 bones can be offered an hour without the need of a BoB using this method, this makes it about equal to using a Pack Yak in the player-owned house.
The only way to train Prayer is by burying Bones or Big Bones. If you were to just sit there and bury regular bones from level 1 – 99, it would take over 1000 hours and would cost you over 200 000 000. Big bones would take about 300 – 400 hours to bury to level 99.
If you do the cheapest potions and no Overloads, the minimum cost for 99 Herblore will be 52M GP, and it will take you 42-45 hours . The maximum cost will be 212M GP and takes you 25-27 hours .
This expands rapidly to a total 13,034,431 experience needed for level 99 . Level 85 requires nearly one quarter of the experience needed for level 99 and level 92 is nearly the exact halfway mark, requiring 6,517,253 experience.

Ensouled heads are items that can be dropped by their respective monsters. These heads can be reanimated by using the appropriate spell within the Arceuus spellbook on the head .

The Chaos Temple is a structure in level 38 Wilderness, west of the Lava Maze. It contains a chaos altar where players can recharge and train their Prayer. Free players may visit the temple , however only members may take advantage of the altar’s benefits.
Big bones , along with all other types of bones can be used on the altars , granting 4 times the normal experience. This may be especially worthwhile with big bones and dragon bones . To free up your inventory space, you can place bones on the table in the Smuggler’s room without fear of them disappearing.
Dragon bones are associated with the Prayer skill, and are dropped by most adult dragons . Dragon bones give 72 Prayer experience when buried, 180 Prayer experience when cremated, 288 Prayer experience when offered at the Ectofuntus, or 252 Prayer experience when offered at a gilded altar with 2 burners lit.
These bones can be used for the best Prayer experience in the game, but they are very expensive; when used at a gilded altar, they require 19.79 coins per experience, while regular dragon bones use 7.93 coins per experience. As such, the most economical use is as a secondary for making super antifire potions.
Normally, Ensouled Heads are way better than bones for training Prayer in terms of cost. But, with a method that isn’t as risky at the Chaos Alter, you can train your Prayer faster, and cheaper than Ensouled Heads .
