An altar is an interactive piece of scenery which allows a player to recharge their Prayer points. To pray at an altar, you must left click on the altar, or right click & select the 'pray' option. Your character will then kneel by the altar and your prayer points will be recharged. To locate an altar look for the altar icon () on the World map or Minimap.
