As some of you might know, I've been going barrows these past two weeks. My goal was to get all 24 items.

Big thanks go out to Kyrade and Ripa (members of NSC), as it was during their Fall 2010 Race that I rediscovered the joy of barrows.
Also thanks to Flikkenstein and Hugopluks13 (also members of NSC) for posting videos on how they did barrows, which helped me build up my gear.

The tools
Hidden:

Super restore to bless graves or in emergencies.
House tele, use Canifis portal, and restock on ovl/brews, and, if needed, super restores/runes.
I use terrorbird to prevent food from being eaten by ghasts and restoring run after arriving at mort'ton by boat.

The strategy
Hidden: 
Auto retaliate should be OFF
First three chests you use rocktails to heal, to make some room for loot.
Use one sip of brew per ovl, to restore some health.

1. Start with Verac, using ice barrage to freeze and blood barrage to heal. (if he's your tunnel, move on to Dharok)
2. Second is Dharok, same deal. (if he's your tunnel and you are above 800 Lp, move on to either Karil or Ahrim, otherwise go blood barrage Guthan or Torag for some health)
3. Third comes Karil. Claws alone will kill him most of the time, but can switch to blood barrage. (if he's your tunnel, move on to Ahrim)
4. Fourth comes Ahrim, just range him. (if he's your tunnel, move on to either Torag or Guthan, doesn't matter who)
5. Fifth comes either Torag or Guthan, whoever is closest.

__Tunnel__

If your tunnel is one of the melee brothers, wear bandos, with ice barrage set to autocast.
If your tunnel is Karil, equip claws with special attack enabled.
If your tunnel is Ahrim, wear arma.

Note: typing NE, NW, SE, SW in public helps to remember where the exit rope is.

Once you arrive at the door to the middle room, cast ice barrage once on the monster attacking you, and run to solve the puzzle.
This should give you plenty of time to not misclick the answer.
Kill any remaining brothers, loot the chest (if your iventory is full, remember to check the ground for any items), and make your way out.
Enter Verac's tomb and rest, letting run energy reach 60%, and if under 800 Lp, wait for ovl to wear off, thus healing you.

The loots

Thanks for reading. :)

Wow, that's a lot of loot. I did 130 barrows chests and only received a verac's skirt. You obviously have better luck. Nice work =)
