Your Barrows Tips


With Barrows receiving a fresh new graphical makeover, defeating the spririts within has never been a more beautiful experience. If you’ve never taken on the Barrows Brothers before, now’s the perfect time to grab your spade and start digging!
You don’t need to be a high level to take them on but be warned, the brothers are no push over and should be handled with caution. Since they first arrived in Gielinor, we’ve seen all manner of tactics and guile used to dispatch each brother and so now, we turn to the skilled and successful to share their advice for an upcoming video.
We’ll soon be launching the “Ten Top Barrows Bros. Tips” video and we'll grab together our favourite tips and suggestions you guys send in to be included on the video. This will then be hosted for the world to see on our Official RuneScape YouTube channel.
So if you've got some awesome advice to share then post it here in this thread or alternatively send it in an email to community@jagex.com with the subject 'Barrows Tips'. All suggestions by the 12th January 2012. All RuneScape Terms and Conditions apply.
Please only send a maximum of two tips.

Tip: Kill the brothers in order from strongest to weakest (Their strength based on their special effects). This will prevent your prayer from running dry when you're facing a stronger opponent. ;)

1. Try and dispatch Verac as quickly as possible, since he can hit through your prayers and armour. Keep an eye on your prayer when fighting Dharok. Prayer is not really necessary on Torag and Guthan since they are so innaccurate, and they're effects are not that dangerous.
2. When you have completed the 'Branches of Darkmeyer' quest, use the Drakan's medallion to teleport right to Barrows!

Just kill them all and don't die... and loot the best you can from chest.
Or just say "I'm Chuck Norris give me all you have" and BOOM big profit is coming.
Barrows is so easy these days, you don't even need a spade now just stat boosting pot ant pray pots.And best armor ofc.

1. For high defence brothers, use slayer dart since it does not require any magic bonuses, so it works well with melee gear.
2. Ahrim lowers your melee stats even though you have protect from magic, so its best to try kill him fast and after killing others unless you use stat boosting potions so you have higher melee stats for karill for example.
