Dharok the Wretched (abbreviated by some players as DH), is the second oldest of the six Barrows brothers. Like most of the Barrows Brothers, he attacks with melee, using his greataxe. Dharok attacks at a slower speed than his brothers, but when he is at low health he can hit extremely high and thus he is considered by most players to be the most dangerous of the Barrows brothers.

Dharok's set effect; Dharok's Might, causes his average damage dealt to be increased as he loses life points. This causes him to hit upwards of 3000-4000 when at low life points. Therefore it is incredibly important for a player to watch their life points as well as prayer points (if using protection prayers - Highly recommended) and to eat food whenever necessary. Protect from Melee/Deflect Melee are also recommended when fighting him, as they can block up to 50% of damage he inflicts, reducing the maximum hit to around 1000-2000.

Dharok is fought in Barrows: Rise of the Six.

History[edit | edit source]

Early History[edit | edit source]

Dharok, along with his brothers, lived on a small farm. He was somewhat haughty, having bullied others when he was young. Eventually, his younger brother Guthan convinced him to join the crusades. Dharok initially opposed the idea, as he believed that maintaining the farm and feeding the crusaders was enough "glory" for him.

2016 Easter event[edit | edit source]

During the 2016 Easter event, Dharok the Wretched and his brothers play a role as the workers (bobble-numbskulls) of Sliske's chocolate factory. They resembled their bobble-head versions.

Kindred Spirits[edit | edit source]

Dharok mentally tortured in his arena.

During Kindred Spirits, Sliske subjects Dharok into a "game" where he is constantly forced to fight endless waves of Saradomin crusaders, much to his reluctance. The World Guardian, who is forced to play along to save Meg, Rancour and Linza, speaks with Dharok about the fights. They can either decide to help or torture Dharok. If they torture him, they release a white knight champion which quickly kills him. If they help him, they ask him to to "die" to the crusaders. Even though Dharok is somewhat concerned about their decision, he listens to them.

Afterwards, if tortured, Dharok is upset with their actions for devastatingly crushing him in battle. If helped, Dharok thanks them, now knowing what it meant to feel the retribution of his victims.

He asks them to save Ahrim while he accompanies the rest of the group. When the hostages escapes Sliske's vault, Dharok meets the World Guardian, thanking them, as they feel that Sliske's control over them is weakening a bit. He and his brothers promise to help them when the time is right, and for the time being, pretend to be fully controlled by Sliske before returning to his tomb.

Sliske's Endgame[edit | edit source]

Dharok, along with his brothers, appeared in Sliske's Endgame, being the second intended wave in Sliske's attempts to destroy the World Guardian. However, the Barrows Brothers had managed to regain a modicum of control over their own actions, and chose to aid the World Guardian, attacking Sliske's wights and champions.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 23 October 2017 (Update):
    • The right-click options on Barrows brothers spawned by other players have been removed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dharok, along with all the other Barrows Brothers, received a graphical update on 4 January 2012 to make him look more like a player wearing his items rather than the old graphics style which displayed an unclear, purely pink coloured apparition. Along with this update, his combat level was increased from 115 to 196. Due to the Evolution of Combat, his combat level has been lowered to 150.
  • All of the Barrows brothers had their attack speed changed to 6 ticks (3.6 seconds) during the transition to the Evolution of Combat. Dharok was the only one among them whose speed increased; his pre-EoC attack speed was 7 game ticks (4.2 seconds).
  • There are two statues of Dharok, or a player wearing Dharok's set, in front of the Morytania Slayer Tower wielding a 2-handed sword. The prominent spike on the front of the helmet is missing on both statues.
