    Barrows guide

    Post by Grimmjow on Sat Feb 09, 2008 7:33 pm



    to enter use a shovel on a mound this will take you into a small room; within is a crypt and a staircase. The staircase will take you back to where you came from, and clicking on the crypt will do one of two things. The first thing it might do is awaken the spirit living in the crypt, one of the six brothers. This map gives information on which of the crypts belongs to which brother and when searching the crypt you'll find a tunnel. Every time that you go to the barrows, you will have a certain ghost that won't be in his crypt. He will instead be inside of the tunnel that you would enter if you decided to go in. The brother can randomly be spawned by opening a door down in the crypt, or by opening the barrows treasure chest. Therefore, you will find a total of five brothers in their crypts, and one brother inside of the tunnel. Once you have killed the desired amount of brothers from their crypts (Although you don't have to, it is very strongly advised that you kill all five of them), you may descend into your tunnel.When entering the tunnel, you will be in a room with a ladder and four doors, one on each side of the room. You will only be able to open one of them, so open it and follow the hallway to the next room. If you go through a door with a small hallway into another room then you are now in one of the outer middle rooms. You want to get into the center room, which contains the ever infamous Barrows Treasure Chest. The only way into the Treasure Room is to go through one of the four doors from the outer middle rooms. The door is completely random and can be in any four of the outer middle rooms. Check all of the doors from the outer middle rooms into the center room until you find the one that can be opened. If you are stuck and cannot find your way into the center room try standing next to one of the four doors and angle your camera so that you can see the middle room, you will be able to see the other three doors as well, which will help you find which one has the "Open" option. Once you have found the door you will have to answer one of the four questions correctly:




    Note: the answers aren't always in the exact same order so pay attention to which one is which.

    Once you have answered the puzzle correctly, the door will be able to open. If you answer the puzzle incorrectly then the puzzle door will be changed to a different door and you must find it again. Once you have gotten into the center room you will see a closed chest. If you haven't already run into and killed the sixth Barrows Brother, he will appear once you open the chest. Kill him, and you are ready to search the chest. Once you have searched the chest, the cave will start collapsing and hitting random hits on you until you get out of the cave. It's your choice here whether you teleport out and bank or find your ladder again to go straight back to fight the brothers. You ARE NOT assured anything out of the chest no matter how many times you go or how many things you kill. If you notice in the bottom right corner of your screen you will see a kill counter. This appears whenever you are in the tunnel or in one of the brothers' crypts. The kill count rises when you either kill one of the brothers or one of the creatures inside of the tunnel. The kill count in no way affects the chance of you getting a barrows item. The only way to increase your chances of getting barrows armor is by killing more of the six brothers, although it is very possible to get barrows armor or weapons by only killing one brother (just much less of a chance than if you killed all six).

    Note: when you teleport out, your Killcount will not be reset and will remain there. The Killcount will only reset once you have opened the chest.

    Once you have left the tunnel, everything in the barrows will reset, including your kill count and the barrows brothers themselves (this also means that you might meet a different brother in the tomb). Now it's on to the strategies that you might want to use while visiting the barrows.


    Strategy #1: The Ancient Magic Freezing Approach

    Recommended Items: Magic armor and ranging armor, Mithril-Rune Arrows, Runes to cast Ice Burst or other Ice attack, Lobsters+ for food purposes, 2-10 prayer potions (depending on how many trips you plan per bank run), Super Stat Restore Potion, Magic short bow, Ancient or Water staff, and Teleport Runes or an Ectophial.

    This strategy is all about timing, and uses many less prayer potions than most methods to date. In this method, you are able to attack the opponents from a distance, and run off into cover before the barrows brother is able to fight back. This method is much more dangerous than many other methods as well, so be cautious when using it.

    To start, make sure that you have at least 10 points of prayer and head over to the tomb of Dharok. It is advised that you start out with magic armor and your staff handy, ready to cast your ice attack on the spot. Turn on Protect From Melee and search the crypt, and cast your ice spell on Dharok as soon as he appears. Take a few steps back from him and run on the opposite side of his coffin. When he becomes unfrozen wait for a second (it is now safe to turn off your prayer). After about 10 seconds quickly run to an end of your side of the coffin, but make sure that your magic menu is open. When Dharok gets to the end of his side of the coffin quickly cast your ice spell on him. When he becomes frozen you have EXACTLY enough time for three more attacks before he is able to move if you're using Ice Burst. You should have time for 6 more attacks if using Ice Barrage. Now, once you have begun casting your fourth spell quickly run back to the opposite side of the coffin as Dharok is on, making sure to keep out of his reach if you're too slow. Repeat this process until he is out of health, but don't be fooled by him if he has 2 or 3 health points left, because he'll make you regret it with very high damage and accuracy.

    The other 3 meleeing brothers aren't as strong as Dharok and will not need any prayer when you first open their crypts; just continue to use the same method as you did on Dharok. Once you have killed all four of the meleeing brothers it is time to use your prayer or super restore potions and head over to Karil's crypt. Choose between Maging and Ranging (maging works slightly better but uses up runes), and go on in. Turn on protect from range and kill him. Next go to Ahrim's crypt and use your magic short bow to kill him; he dies very quickly, although it is advised that you use prayer on him as well. Now it is time to head into the tunnel. On the brother in the tunnel, you'll be almost forced to pray against them no matter which one it is, especially if it is Dharok, so just kill them and reap your rewards.


    Strategy #2: The Prayer and Magic Dart Approach

    Recommended Items: Magic armor and ranging armor, Mithril-Rune Arrows, Runes to cast Magic Dart, Lobsters+ for food purposes, 5-15 prayer potions (depending on how many trips you plan per bank run), Super Stat Restore Potion, Magic short bow, Slayer staff, Ectophial.
    This strategy is the more commonly used one, because it has a much lower chance of death while barrowing. However, this approach does use MANY more prayer potions than the first choice, although it doesn't use nearly as many runes. This approach is also much simpler than the first one; simply use prayer potions to keep up your prayer while you use magic dart on the barrows brothers until they die. You'll still use the same method on Ahrim and Karil, but the melee brothers are much less of a hassle with this approach. The tunnel will also use the same method, simply pray on the last brother and reap your rewards! You might want to bring noted food and potions, so that you only have to go to the Mort'ton general store for supplies, but beware, if you die, it will be much more costly. However, if you have finished the quests In Search of the Myreque and In Aid of the Myreque, you will have access to a bank in Burgh De Rott, just South of Mort'ton.

    This is know as plagiarism a nearly identical guide


    Please don't copy other peoples guides without saying where it comes from or asking for their permission.
    it isn't fair that you should get credit for this when all you have done is remove bits here and there and changed it a little.
