An Altar is an object that is used to restore the player's prayer points. Altars can be found in the many churches and temples throughout RuneScape Classic.

Altars completely restore the player's prayer points when accessed, with no cost to the player. There is one altar which gives a temporary bonus +2 prayer points whilst recharging on that altar, allowing for up to 101 prayer points. This special altar is located in the Prayer Guild and requires level 31 prayer to reach.

There are 3 visual representations of altars in RuneScape Classic, each with their respective god being the accompanying theme.

  • Holy altars, which represent Saradomin
  • Chaos altars which represent Zamorak
  • Guthix altars which represent Guthix

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Chaos altars are designed with a skull at the top of each of their legs.
  • Although there is a temple to Zamorak in Varrock, the chaos altar inside can't be seen on the pre-release world map from November 2000. Apparently it was added later.
  • It's easy to miss, but there are skulls at the top of each leg of a chaos altar.
  • There is an inconsistency in the way that the holy altars are oriented throughout RuneScape. Sometimes the holy altar is oriented so that the book is closer to the wall, and sometimes the altar is oriented so that the cross is closer to the wall. 30.7% of holy altars are oriented so that the book is closer to the wall, and 69.3% are oriented the other way.
    • Their orientation was never consistent. On the release of RuneScape, on 4 January 2001, two holy altars were positioned with the book closer to the wall and one was positioned the other way. However, all holy altars added after 6 April 2001 were oriented with the cross closer to the nearest wall.
