A player wearing monk's robes.

Monk's robes are a free-to-play set of robes found on the second floor of the Monastery north of eastern Falador and just slightly north-west of the Barbarian Village between Ice Mountain and Edgeville. They provide bonuses to a player's Prayer skill when worn. Each half (the top and bottom) can be worn independently of one another. They are known to be worn by non-member pures as they have no requirements and are free (provided you have 31+ Prayer to access the Monastery). It can be found on the table in one the rooms of the second level of the Monastery. As part of the 7 May 2008 update, monk robes and the Monastery, where they are found in, got a makeover. The top now sports a golden star of Saradomin and incorporates a hood that has been folded down. This makes it resemble a hooded jumper when worn on its own. The Monk's robes don't require any defensive levels to be worn.

This item has been suggested by some players to be worn instead of being completely unarmed.

This robe also is among the best items that give a prayer bonus to free players, and one of the only free-to-play items that give a Prayer bonus in the armour slots.

  • Before the makeover, only Brother Brace on Tutorial Island, and the monks of the Monastery, had golden stars.
  • In the Duel Arena, the Monk wears the past version of the robes.
  • Many players would like a "Monk Hood" because it would match the robes instead of having to become a member and getting either a Hunter or Woodcutting hood.
  • Selling multiples of the full set of Monk's robes is an easy way to get a lot of money, as long as your prayer is level 31 or higher.
  • Monk robes are commonly used by F2P and P2P PKers, since they offer prayer bonuses.
