OSRS Barrows Guide

Barrows Brother, also known as the best money-making method in-game since its addition in the year 2005. It’s quite obvious why it’s a good method to make money – because players have a chance to obtain various Barrows items that are attributed to the six brothers. However, while you’re in a battle against them, there are specific mechanics that you have to follow, or you’ll end up being dead. Let’s begin this barrows guide osrs!

Important Requirements

Participating in the Barrows minigame doesn’t have any special requirements (other than a quest), but it’s important that your stats are high enough to protect yourself from the damages caused by the brothers. The quest that you have to complete is Priest in Peril to access the area, along with Nature Spirit, which only requires you to start it.

Recommended Requirements

It is recommended that you complete the Rum Deal quest, as well as 50% of the Morytania Hard Diary to gain access to the Holy Wench and a chance to obtain more runes from the chest. Other than that, let’s have a gander at the minimum recommended stats – 60 Attack (Whip requires 70), 60 Strength, 60 Defense (Barrows’ armor requires 70), 61 Ranged (Blowpipe requires 75), 50 Magic (Trident requires 75), 43 Prayer, and a decent Agility level to decrease your run depletion process.

Recommended Equipment

The Barrows Brothers have low magic defense, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re wearing magic gear or gear of another attack style, because you’ll still damage them. However, do note that if you end up dying, you’ll without a doubt lose your items, until or unless you retrieve them on time.
Here are some of the best-in-slot equipment for your osrs barrows setup:
Helm – Ancestral hat > Barrows’ helmet > Dragon full helm > Helm of neitiznot, Necklace – Occult necklace > Amulet of fury > Amulet of glory > Amulet of power, Cape – Infernal cape > Imbued god cape > Fire cape > Trimmed skill cape > Ardougne cloak, Body – Ancestral robe top > Barrows’ plate body > Dragon plate body > Fighter torso, Legs – Ancestral robe bottom > Barrows’ plate legs > Dragon plate legs > Rune plate legs, Shield – God book > Dragon fire shield > Crystal shield > Toktz-ket-xil, Gloves – Barrows osrs gloves > Tormented bracelet > Dragon gloves > Combat bracelet, Boots – Primordial boots > Bandos boots > Dragon boots > Granite boots, Ring – Archers’ ring (I) > Archers’ ring > Ring of suffering (I) > Seers’ ring (I) > Ring of dueling

How To Get There?

There are numerous ways to reach the Barros minigame, but the best-suggested ones are; using a Barrows Teleportation Tablet to directly reach the spot, Slave Graveyard Teleport or the Fairy Ring (Code: BKR) to reach the swamps of Mort Myre. From the swamps, you can head south and easily get there. There’s another swift way to get there with the help of agility (level 50 required): Use the Fairy Ring (Code: BIP) to reach the location, then head east, and then turn towards south to reach Barrows osrs.

Game Mechanics

When you reach the area, you’ll notice six grave mounds. You will need to stand on top of the mound and dig using a spade to enter a crypt. Upon entering, you’ll find a Sarcophagus, which needs to be searched for the brother to appear and attack you. Similarly, you’ll be going to have to kill 5 brothers in their crypts and then move to the sixth mound, which will give you access to a tunnel.
These tunnels will have nine rooms, and you have to make your way through to the room in the center where the final reward can be obtained. Some of the doors are locked, so you’ll have to around them to reach the spot, and there’s no telling what creatures reside behind them. While passing from door to door, you may at times trigger the game’s mechanics where the sixth brother will appear and attack you. However, if he doesn’t, then when you open the rewarding chest, he’ll for sure come around to attack. Once the brother is defeated and the chest has been successfully searched, the tunnel will start to collapse. So, in this barrows guide osrs we highly recommend you to make your way out as soon as possible or you’ll start to deal damage.

You have to complete a puzzle to enter the treasure room.

Strategy

1.The best-known strategy for prayer optimization would be to start off with Dharok. He wears Melee equipment which makes him vulnerable against Magic attacks. Make sure that you have Protect from Melee active at all times because Dharok’s attacks can hit up to 64 on lower HP.

2.The second target should be Karil. He wears Ranged equipment which makes him vulnerable against Magic attacks (similar to Dharok). Make sure that you have to Protect from Missiles active at all times because Karil’s attacks yield a 25% chance to hit successfully, and each hit reduces 20% of your Agility.

3.The third target should be Ahrim. He wears Magic equipment which makes him vulnerable against Ranged attacks. Make sure that you have Protect from Magic active at all times because Ahrim’s attacks yield a 20% chance to hit successfully, and each hit reduces your strength by 5. He also uses Confuse, Weaken, and Curse spells that can lower your Attack, Strength, and Defense stats.

4.The fourth target should be Verac. He wears Melee equipment which makes him vulnerable against Magic attacks (similar to Dharok and Karil). Make sure that you have Protect from Melee active at all times because Verac’s attacks yield a 25% chance to hit successfully, and each hit disregards your defence, protection prayers, and armour bonus.

5.The fifth target should be Guthan. He wears Melee equipment which makes him vulnerable against Magic attacks (similar to Dharok, Karil, and Verac). Make sure that you have Protect from Melee active at all times because Guthan’s attacks yield a 25% chance to hit successfully, and each hit helps in recovering his own health, making it harder to defeat him.

6.Finally, the last brother you’ll have to face is Torag. He wears Melee equipment which makes him vulnerable against Magic attacks (similar to Dharok, Karil, Verac, and Guthan). Make sure that you have Protect from Melee active at all times because Torag’s attacks yield a 25% chance to hit successfully, and each hit can deplete your stamina by 20%.

How to Make Money in Runescape

Here are a few ways to make easy money in Runescape, a popular MMORPG.
Note : This is mainly for F2P players, as P2P players will have other, more easier methods to make money.

  1. Selling Steel Bars

Requirement : 30 Mining, 30 Smithing, 43 Magic ( Optional)

An easy way to make money is to make steel bars, which sell for 1000 coins each, by mining 2 coal and 1 iron in the dwarven mines, where both can be found. With 43 Magic, Superheat Item can be cast on them, saving time, as instead of smelting the bars in the Falador furnace, you can do it inside the Mines itself. It is recommended that you buy a fire staff (1500 coins in store, 801 coins on GE). The profit when using the Superheat Item spell is 750 coins, as opposed to 1000 coins, but saves time and more can be made per hour.

  1. Selling Air Runes

Requirement : 1 Runecrafting ( But the higher the more money made), 1 Mining, Completion of “Rune Mysteries”

Another way to make money is to run air runes, the altar of which can be found south-west of varrock, close to Barbarian Village. After Mining the Rune essence, you can run to the altar and change them into air runes, which sell for 16 coins each. with 27 essences, 28 if you have air tiara, you can make 432 coins per run. If you have higher runecrafting, however, you can make more air runes per rune essence. Ex. at 22 runecrafting, you make 3 air runes per essence, which increases your profit to 1296 coins per run, which is reasonable.

  1. Selling Rune Essence

Requirement : 1 Mining, Completion of ” Rune Mysteries”

Alternatively, instead of converting the rune essence into any type of rune, you can just sell the rune essence itself, which sells for 71 coins each, making 1988 per run, assuming that the pickaxe is armed. However, someone with 44 runecrafting would be able to make 2160 coins per run with air runes, but it takes a long time to train to 44 runecrafting.

  1. Selling Big Bones

Requirement : Preferably 45+ Combat

A popular way to make money is to kill Hill Giants ( Level 28) and collect the Big Bones that are dropped and sell them in the GE, where they are sold for 649 coins each, making 18172 per full inventory, however, unless you are ranging from a safe spot, you will be needing space for runes and for food, so the amount made will differ.
