    Prayer Drain Rate

    There has recently been quite a bit of chatter about people noticing that prayer is draining faster than usual. I myself haven't noticed a change since starting the server but I was curious enough to test this out. I used an OSRS account to try this:

    The Test:
    • Both accounts started with full prayer: 71 on OSRS and 95 (950) on Zarpor
    • Both accounts will activate piety and protect from melee - I even started my prayer on OSRS first to give Zarpor the edge
    • Both accounts will not be wearing any armour and will have a prayer bonus of 0
    • When one account runs out of prayer points the prayers will be turned off on the other account to see how many prayer points remained

    Under ideal conditions the OSRS account should run out of prayer and the Zarpor account should have roughtly 24 (240) prayer points remaining (this is due to the difference in prayer levels).

    The Results:
    • The Zarpor account ran out of prayer first and the OSRS account had 15 prayer points remaining

    This means that 95 (950) prayer points on Zarpor drained in the time that 56 prayer points drained on OSRS - Zarpor prayer drain is nearly twice as fast as it is on OSRS. And yes the quality of the gif is quite horrid (I used a basic screen recorder and uploaded it in .gif format), but if you zoom in on your browser you can make out the key points.

    Not entirely sure this is a bug.

    So was the prayer intentionally made to drain faster? A lot of us have noticed this change. It seemed to have started within the last week or two.

    Noticed this a while ago, definitley faster then previously was.

    Maybe something was unintentionally changed in code with donor perks and so on?

    Perhaps at some point during rsps2. Or came with the source, at which point it would be a bug - except it hasn't been changed for so long it may have crossed into feature territory.

    It's the same speed as it has been since beta.

    I've heard it from many people as well. I only started taking screenshots.







    It must of been somehow unintentionally if everyone claims it wasn't touched.

    This needs to be looked into.

    It hasn't changed lol. I don't mean it was unintentionally changed or accidentally changed - I mean it's the exact same as it has always been. Someone at some point mistakenly thought it was slower and manged to put it into the heads of several others that it was slower. This happened on RSPS2 at around the same point in its timeline. I looked into it under several conditions and confirmed it's the same drain rate as it has always been.

    I'm personally fine with the way it is, even if it is faster than OSRS. Prayer drain takes forever while wearing proselyte and isn't super fast in other conditions. If we made it any slower, we'd have to tinker with how prayer bonus works and that could take a while to get just right - I'd rather leave things as they are since they're fine.

    Also, moved this to suggestions.

    I noticed this a few weeks ago. It's not constant and idk what causes it, but I've noticed times where my prayer drains noticeably quicker. It's clearly not intentional and shouldn't require any adjustments to prayer bonuses.

    On the other hand if the drain rates are meant to be that fast then I would support having them reduced by a minor percentage.

    I noticed on starting that the pray did drain a little fast.
