Big bones

Big bones are items associated with the skill Prayer. Big bones give 15 experience points when buried. This is over three times as much experience as bones, making big bones an extremely popular method of training prayer in free-to-play. They are dropped by normally large monsters, such as any sorts of Giants, Giant Frogs, Ogres etc. The only free-to-play monsters that drop big bones are: hill giants, moss giants, and ice giants.

Previously the price skyrocketed for big bones, most likely because of price manipulation clans. Collecting them in the Wilderness Bone Yard and selling them was also one of the quickest ways to make money available for non-members. However, Clan Wars was built over the Bone Yard's location on 10 December 2007, reducing the only supply on big bones respawn for free players.

Members can get big bones from the 'gamble' option when purchasing rewards at the Soul Wars arena, but they are likely to not get them. If they do get them, they will likely get them in quantities of 60 or more.

Since the 17 November 2009 update, big bones can be used with Bones to Bananas and Bones to Peaches.


  • For Members who have completed the Biohazard quest, there is an incredibly fast way to get big bones, made even faster if you have 51 magic. In the Training Ground North of Ardougne, many players train range quickly, so they leave the big bones from the ogres on the ground. Enough Ogres are killed that there will be a massive supply of big bones.
  • Twice as much exp per gold can be obtained through using big bones on a gilded altar rather than the traditional dragon bones, although this method is more time consuming.
  • For free-to-play players, the fastest way to get big bones is the from hill giants located in the Edgeville Dungeon. In order to get easy access to these hill giants, the player needs a brass key which can be found inside the Edgeville Dungeon or bought at the Grand Exchange
