The profit rate assumes 18 chest loots per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed.

With the right skills and equipment, high-level players can loot nearly 25 Barrows chests per hour, resulting in a sizable profit. At higher levels one may use any combat style, although most of the brothers are weak to magic. For best results, Barrows amulets should be used on the tombs of Akrisae, Karil, and Ahrim in lieu of on any of the melee brothers. If barrows amulets are not used, it is strongly recommended to skip the Akrisae fight as his use of protection prayers will unnecessarily extend runs.

Players with access to Soul Split will not need food except in emergency situations. Healing via Soul Split when in combat will typically cover all damage taken from the brothers and crypt monsters. All of the brothers may be easily dispatched with threshold abilities. It is recommended to bind or stun Dharok when he has approximately half health, as he is capable of dealing excess damage. If using melee, dual-wielding is recommended for use of Destroy. By quickly running between each crypt, it is possible to keep adrenaline up the entire time so that threshold abilities may be used on all of the brothers. While low-levelled players may need to switch combat styles to cater to individual brothers' weaknesses, players with chaotic or higher weaponry should only rarely miss against any of the brothers. Additionally, it is not necessary to kill the brothers in any particular order. The only difference is the amount of time spent running between each crypt, simply based on the distance between two successive brothers. Kill 6 brothers, skipping Linza, and enter the remaining brother's tunnel.

The starting room of the tunnels has only one operational door. Find this door, and navigate through the tunnels. The chest is located in the centre of the tunnels, and only one of the four adjacent rooms may be used to enter the centre room. It is recommended to run through the passageways connecting corner rooms until finding a door with an "open" option leading into the central room. This door will be locked by a puzzle, and incorrectly answering the puzzle will cause the door to lock and require you to navigate the tunnels again to find a new door.

While running through the tunnels, any of the brothers which have not been killed may spawn when a door is opened. If the brother is not Akrisae, kill him when he spawns, and continue through the maze. It is recommended that prayer renewal be active when running through the tunnels so that Soul Split may be used when killing this brother. If a ring of wealth is not being used, it is recommended to kill 8 crypt monsters while running through the tunnels. Upon opening the chest, the brother whose tunnel you are in will spawn if he has not yet been killed. If this brother is Akrisae, do not fight him. Otherwise, kill this brother. Loot the chest, and teleport out using Drakan's medallion. This teleport cannot be used when in combat, so it is recommended to run behind the chest if being attacked by Akrisae or a crypt monster.

Experienced players should be able to complete one loot in under 3 minutes, though this will vary based on equipment and skill levels. At this rate, approximately 18 chests per hour are likely. However, with the recommended inventory supplies, it is possible to continue looting chests for several hours as only a small portion of the supplies will have been consumed after 1 hour.
