    In addition to being able to use a prayer to your advantage in battle, you can use more than one at a time. Keep in mind that they won’t stack, so a defense prayer won’t stack with another defense prayer; try a defense prayer with a strength prayer, etc. A protect prayer will keep you safe from attacks from monsters. Only Verac has the ability to penetrate through a protect prayer. Other players have a 50% lesser chance to hit you with a protect prayer active. While this is active you can only use a magic prayer, an attack prayer, a strength prayer, a ranged prayer, or a protect from summoning prayer. The first 21 prayers are for F2P (Free to Play) characters and all 27 prayers are attainable for P2P (Pay to Play) members.
