Main articles: Barrows and Barrows/Strategies

The GP per hour depends on how many chests you can get. One chest is worth around 92,621 with Morytania hard diary complete, with max gear you can complete 16 chests in an hour earning around 900,000 profit without any rare drops.

Without diary profit per chest is: 75,186.

The Barrows mini-game is a high-level and high-risk Combat money-making method. The game takes a few tries to learn, but the long-term rewards are worth the effort. The goal is to slay all six brothers, gather the appropriate killcount in the tunnels, and then loot the Barrows chest. A single run could take anywhere from 3 minutes to 30 minutes depending on your level, though the most common strategy involves banking at clan wars after each chest. This leads to 5 minute runs and far more efficient gold per hour due to using less supplies. For those that wish to save even more money by not using Barrows teleports, they can bank in Burgh de Rott after completing In Aid of the Myreque. Most runs will reward players with roughly 56,125 worth of runes and Bolt racks, but there is a 1/17 chance of receiving Barrows equipment, which can be sold at the Grand Exchange for high profit. One of the most rewarding drops is Karil's leathertop, which has a roughly 1,972,648 value. The strategy guide can be found here.
