Protect from Magic grants players 100% resistance to NPC magic attacks, and 40% resistance to magic attacks dealt by players. It depletes prayer at a rate of 1 point per 3.6 seconds (or 6 game ticks).
A strategy used to use as less prayer points as possible without losing the respective effect. Players may turn on their chosen prayer just before being hit by an enemy, and then turn off the prayer just after being hit. If a player does this extremely accurately, no prayer points will be lost (as the prayer will be on for only a few game ticks).
