Through research (tons of posts on this board) after research (reading barrows guides on the main site) I think I've come up with the uber cheap way to beating the barrows. By cheap I mean it in every single sense, money, effectiveness etc. Gear set: Full Rune armor w/any 1 handed dragon weapon (rune kite reduces damage and food needed, CHEAP!!) Full Mystic w/air/fire staff whichever you have less runes of Full Dragonhide (best you can wear) w/ magic shortbow (fires quicker kills faster, uses less prayer) and arrows (preferably good ones but w/e) Amulet of Glory/Ring of Life Mind/Chaos/Death & Air/Fire runes (which ever you need/can afford, you just need enough to kill 5 barrows, keep that in mind) Spade Prayer Pots (2 4 dosers is PLENTY) Food (This is a guide for those who are easily capable of barrows if you don't have the skill requirements for these gears you probably shouldn't be going after barrows) First tip:USE PRAYER! But only on Karil and Ahrim (try to beat them in the crypts, so you don't need to full re-charge prayer in the tunnels on them) This might seem expensive, but its the most effective way to be them, no doubt about it, if you're low level like me you will get pulverized otherwise. Use the usual fighting techniques (range/magic) The melee brothers are safespot fodder in the tunnels. Second tip: Use chaos runes with chaos gauntlets, a very cheap alternative to death runes with very little damage lost, and if you're as cheap as I am you'll use mind runes! HUGE discount on rune costs if you ask me, and no real draw back if you are using safespots, you still take no damage. (This is assuming that you fight all melees in the tunnels and the addition few seconds from using mind over death doesn't matter to you as you waited 30 minutes to fight each brother anywho) Third tip: Use cheap food, if you follow my guide you shouldn't need more then 10 salmons. (Don't tell me you can't fish out 10 salmons in 30 seconds) Ok, now to the fighting: Step 1: The non-melee Enter crypt, put on appropriate gear (range for mage, mage for range), search tomb, turn on proper prayer, range/mage to death. (Keep your prayer up and on) Step 2: Find the tunnel Enter crypt, search tomb, if brother appears run, if tunnel appears enter. Step 3: Get to the NE corner Enter crypt, head towards NE corner, ignore brothers/monsters that spawn, switch to melee gear and keep going in and out of that corner room as both corridors have safespots as does the main room. Brother spawns, hide in safespot, put on mage, and kill. Repeat 3 more times, search for entrance to chest room and viola you've killed the 6 barrows for only 20-25k depending on how many mind/fire/air runes, arrows and prayer doses you used. PS Just as a little disclaimer, if you gave me some of these advices and feel you deserve credit (which I'm sure at least 1 person does) please post here and let me know, cuz I forgot what your name was... PSS If you noticed anything I missed, or should add or a new great cheaper way please let me know and I'll be very grateful to add it in. Thanks and happy Barrow hunting.
