Wolf bones detail.png

Wolf bones are an item obtained by killing a wolf or werewolf. Free players can obtain wolf bones from Pikkupstix's Summoning Shop in Taverley, or killing the wolves in Burthorpe. Players can also get wolf bones by selecting the 'gamble' option when purchasing rewards with Zeal points at the Soul Wars minigame. Doing so will reward the player a random amount of 22-49.

Wolf bones have various uses, including in skills (such as Prayer, Fletching, Crafting and Summoning) and in some quests. They do not work with any of the necklaces from Dungeoneering to yield 50 prayer point regeneration.

Wolf bones look virtually the exact same as regular bones except wolf bones are slightly more greyish in colour.



Players can bury wolf bones to gain 4.5 Prayer experience each. This is the same as the experience gained for burying regular bones. As with most other types of bones, the amount of experience gained can be increased in various ways (e.g., using the bones on the altar in a POH).

Bury Gilded altar or
Chaos Temple
Ectofuntus Cremation
Experience 4.5 15.75 18 20.25 (Total) 11.25 (Prayer) + 9 (FM)
Cost per XP −582.7 −166.5 −145.7 −129.5 (Total) −233.1 (Prayer) or −291.3 (FM)
  • It is assumed that two burners are lit while using the gilded altar and does not include the cost of clean marrentill.


Members can also use a chisel on wolf bones to produce wolfbone arrowtips, used in Fletching to tip ogre arrows. This produces 4 arrowtips, and grants 15 Crafting experience per pile of bones. Using the arrowtips to produce the ogre arrows gives 2.5 Fletching experience per arrowtip.

Economical value

Wolf Whistle and Summoning

Two sets of wolf bones are essential for the Wolf Whistle quest, which unlocks the Summoning skill. Players can find these by searching the dead body of Stikklebrix on White Wolf Mountain whilst doing the quest.

It is not necessary to kill any wolves or buy the bones (though it is also possible to use wolf bones that are obtained in these alternative ways). Despite this, wolf bone prices sky-rocketed after the release of Summoning, and nearby White Wolf Mountain was unusually full of players attempting to obtain wolf bones. Some players were offering up to 8,000 coins for them.

After completing Wolf Whistle, players use wolf bones in Summoning as the tertiary ingredient in infusing spirit wolf pouches, and as one of two tertiary ingredients used in infusing wolpertinger pouches (the other being raw rabbit).

As a First Resort

Prices of wolf bones again went up to around 700 coins with the release of the As a First Resort quest, as four wolf bones are needed.

  • Despite giving the exact same amount of Prayer experience as regular bones, wolf bones are higher in price. This is due to their higher demand for use in Spirit wolf pouches and Wolpertinger pouches, and lower supply than regular bones.
  • If burying these bones with the Dungeoneering prayer necklaces, the bonus prayer will not activate. This might be a glitch.
