The Ancient Curses is a new prayer book after completing The Temple at Senntisten. Its basically the Desert Treasure for prayer instead of magic.

Here are the prayers:

My main question would be should pures raise there prayers to get them?

Instead of taking the easy way out and looking at what's wrong with everything, find positive things and make everyone around you in a better mood.

I believe this will drastically change pking as we know it: You will be pking with smite and piety , all of sudden your spec bar goes, your stats are drained , your hits are getting reflected along with veng.

Instead of all pure getting prayer, I believe there will be a new genre of pures. Prayer Beasts. This was the name given to pures back in classic that had prayer when others didn't, this became standardised so now the term is obselete. Although now the prayers have such a high requirement no doubt you'll be gaining 2 - 3 - 4 combat levels. Which is pretty extreme.

Who knows  :-S

Tbh I see the potential removal, or reduction of these prayers. If people use them, they will prove to be extremely annoying in pvp. Draining someone's spec just isn't cool. As soon as somebody sees you have an Ags, they will immediately start draining your spec. No...Just no...prayer was fine with regards to pking. All they needed to do was make it more useful for monsterhunting. They ought to treat this like they did the Herblore update.

They look pretty interesting to me, and they'll finaly give us some incentive to train prayer. I think we'll have to wait a few days to see the full impact of them though.

If people spent tens of millions of their precious gpess on it I think they should be able to use them whenever and wherever they want. It'll change pvp a little but I doubt it can be that bad.

I think it could make 30 def pkers a more popular option as these prayers + rune gloves = 14,000k DEF XP = 30 defence. I personally wouldn't bother with it, unless I had the money for 95 prayer, which I think is the only one to make a big enough difference against 35/40/45 def pkers at that level.

As for pking at a higher level, I am sure it will make a difference. I am keen to see how popular they become as opposed to the regular prayer book.

People have spent more on Herblore then they have on Prayer in most cases, and they can's use extreme pots in pvp. Also though, I just realized that this is a SEPERATE prayerbook. I was assuming these were an addition to the normal prayerbook. Things seem a lot more sensible now.

When the novelty wears off I doubt anyone will use these. Nothing stands out.

I spent a moment determining whether you were calling me a nerd or whether you were just trying to troll me.

With further examination I realized that you failed.
