Increases defense by 5%
Drain rate: 15

Thick Skin is a prayer which players can use at level 1. It has a drain rate of 5 points per minute, and when activate, it increases defense by 5% temporarily.

Because it is the first prayer available, it is often used by new players, and enabled in dire situations by low-level pures with level 1 prayer. However, it cannot be enabled for more than a very short period of time, so its effect in lengthening life with a low prayer level is minimal.
