I need some barrows help

Recommended Posts

99 Attack and Strength

98 Defence

86 Range

79 Prayer

83 Magic

 

I wear Guthans armor at Barrows.

 

For Dharok I use my black salamander and pray the whole fight. After this fight I head to Karil.

 

For Karil I use my whip and pray the whole fight. After this fight I head to Ahrim.

 

For Ahrim I spec with my dragon dagger, and then switch to my whip. I have mixed results with Ahrim. Occasionally my dragon dagger will hit really well and I can kill him rather quickly. Usually I do not spec well though, and end up taking a lot of damage fighting him. For this reason I have been praying to fight Ahrim as well. After this fight I head to Verac.

 

For Verac I switch back to my salamander. Sometimes I pray, sometimes I don't. Kind of depends on if I have prayer points left, and how many pray pots and food I have left. After this fight I head to Guthan and then Torag.

 

For Guthan and Torag I use my salamander as well. I rarely pray, occasionally will use food.

 

Once I enter the tunnel my first priority is healing with my Guthans. If I have Dharok or Karil in the tunnels I will pray. I also heal with my Guthans before I leave the tunnels. I tend to rely on my pray and Guthans healing ability. Food is basically used when I get in trouble.

 

I have not trained Dungeoneering. I really hate questing although I do have the holy wrench which seems to help. I have a Sara Godsword. I have a lot of armor, Bandos, Arma, lots of Barrows.

 

I am looking for some advice on my strategy. To extend my trip I need to reduce my reliance on prayer potions. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Are you using a holy wrench for the ppots you have? Also, you could probably use ancients and use the freeze, side step maneuver. You could also use the blood spells to regenerate your hp.


Finally on here to update that I have officially quit! It's been fun.

I see a lot of guys doing that. I have yet to try it because I have never really like maging. I will definitely read up on that tactic. Oh, I do use the wrench, one of the few quests that I have done. =)

I do mine quite a bit differently. Same order for the brothers, but I like playing with Fire Surge (Sally works almost as good too. I just like the speed & exp). I wear Torags, have a crossbow, bdhide top/bottom & broad bolts in invent. Whip as well. You have no trouble until Ahrim it seems. Maybe take some magic defense in there when you go? I never use more than 2 doses of ppot per run unless I get Karil in the tunnel.

Maybe you should get fire surge, or at least level up your magic a bit.

This way, you'll take less damage from Ahrim.

I'm definitely gonna bring some mage defence on my next run, I hate that I pray on Ahrim. I would love to hear more about your strategy. I am guessing you mage Dharok, Verac, Guthan, and Torag? Range Ahrim? Melee Karil? I wish I only used 2 doses of ppot per run, I bet my average is closer to 4 doses.

When I did barrows, I usually used only 1 dose of prayer potion using the Black Salamander + Freeze method. I meleed Karil and Ranged Ahrim. I went to Karil > Ahrim > Dharok > Torag > Guthan.

Really? Cause as I recall it was you who was the one cussing me at base. Also, re-read what you just said: one 15 second delay (which is an exaggeration to begin with) ruins floor times? You are beyond ridiculous.

This would fix a lot of your problems, not the least of which is using guthan's. Also, you should sell your bandos, arma, and SGS for extremes/overloads (though not right now with herb prices being crazy).

I'll tell you my whole set-up... haha

 

I drink once before maging Dharok, then I start fighting Karil (I usually mage him. 99 magic & fire surge typically does better than my melee) and once I hit 0 prayer I drink another dose. I then have about 12-13 pts left over for Ahrim which I use Eagle Eye to speed up the kill. Then I use the SoL special before fighting Guthan and I can usually kill him and most of Torag before the -50% melee damage effects wear off. Then it's just about tanking Verac.

 

In my invent: black dhide top/bottom, rune crossbow, whip, spade, 4 prayer pots, runes, 2-3 monks, 9-10 baskets of strawberries, house tabs, and an empty slot.

Equipped: Torag helm/body/legs, firecape, SoL, fury, drag boots, zammy book, seer's ring

 

I'm sure people could make it better, but it's worked for the past 1m magic experience I've got there. :P

That's a pretty decent setup, use protect prayers and piety for all brothers and use korasi's sword to spec out the tunnel brother (with spec recovers).

 

Alternatively, use mage gear and salamander + blitz, working on magic to get barrage. You don't need to wear Torag's for this, use Ahrim's + a good shield and helmet.
