    I. FAQ
    1. What is the best way to get runes?
    Several Monsters drop rare runes quite a bit. I find Ice Warriors the easiest
    to get them from, though most high-level monsters drop quite a bit of rare
    2. How do I level up prayer?
    Bury bones, are do some of the various quests that give you xp (Holy Grail, Restless Ghost.)
    3. At higher levels, it seems to take *forever* to level up prayer? How can I
    It is unfortunate, but no. Jagex said they will add more prayers and ways of
    leveling them up soon, as once you get past around level 40, it takes thousands
    of bones to level up.
    4. Where is there a rune shop?
    No rare runes are sold only in the shops, but there are several common rune
    shops, including  one in Port Sarim and one in the Alleways in East Varrock.
    5. What are the common runes?
    Common runes are Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Mind, and Body. They are only worth
    around 3 gp each, and are found very commonly in large numbers and can be
    bought in the shops.
    6. What are the rarer runes?
    Rare runes are Nature, Chaos, Death, Blood, Law, and Cosmic. These runes are
    only dropped by monsters in smaller amounts, and range in price according to
    demand and rarity from 50 gp (chaos) to 1,000 gp (blood when they are in high
    7. What is a prayer's drain rate?
    A prayer's drain rate is a number indicating on how fast a prayer drains. The
    lower the number, the slower it drains.
    8. How can I make my prayers last longer?
    Blessed Holy Symbols, and Monk, Druid, and Chaos robes all raise your "prayer
    indicator" which makes your prayers last longer.
    9. Where is the prayer guild?
    The prayer guild is up the ladder inside the east building at the monastery
    near ice mountain. It requires lvl 31 prayer to get in, and inside you can get
    monks robes and get holy symbols blessed.
    10. Where do I get druid and chaos robes?
    Druid robes are dropped occasionally Druids, of course. Chaos robes are harder
    to get. There are several Necromancer respawn points in the area around
    Ardougne. There is a slight chance that they will drop them.
    11. What do elemental staves do?
    Each elemental staff gives you an unlimited supply of that rune as long as you
    have the staff equipped. (Comes in Fire, Earth, Water, and Air ONLY.)
    12. What is different about an elemental battlestaff?
    An elemental battlestaff is basically an elemental staff with decent attack
    power (about that of a rune long.)
    13. I am above level 51 magic, but how do I use Teleport Ardougne?
    You must have completed the "Plague City" quest and have used the magic scroll
    you get as a reward.
    II. Updates
    10.23.02 - Runescape was again updated with new runes and the brand new dragon
    so I added the information about them.
    8.27.02 - Runescape was updated today with a new quest, and a new spell used to
    teleport to Ardougne. I added the spell to the list below, and added a new
    question in the FAQ related to the new spell (#13).
    8.19.02 - The magic table was too wide and wasn't being displayed properly to
    some people, so the table has been fixed.
