Out of curiosity, and because I'm getting back into Barrows, does anyone know why the Barrows Amulet doesn't work on Linza's sarcophagus? For example, when Linza's quest came out or her inclusion in Barrows was announced, was there a specific statement made RE why she's supposedly immune to the amulet?

I know her flames are a different color, and she's significantly more difficult to kill than the other brothers. However, since we CAN use the amulet on Akrisae's tomb, I wonder why not Linza's as well?

Jagex simply didn't want people to be able to cheese the new boss with stocked up amulets. I believe it was meant to keep her special and above the brothers, while keeping her gear more valuable. Nobody buys that gear, the GE prices are still higher than actual selling price. The amulets should be updated to work on her as well.

Ignoring Chuckvnorris' sexist piggery, thanks all others for the responses. Thinking back, since her wight-ing came after the release of the barrows amulets, it would make sense that they don't work on her. I do hope there's an update in the future where she's included in the amulets, as currently she's a little too OP for taking on during normal barrows runs.

Thank you.

Graverobber (barrows title, 4145 Linza kills) here. She is much stronger than her male counterparts, and as such, no measly medallion could banish her.


I agree, she's quite powerful. I wonder if any future update could, instead of banishing her, instead drop her power level down a little.
