This talk page is for discussing the Barrows brothers page.

Article name change[edit source]

I've moved the Barrows Brothers page to "Barrow wights" as it seems Jagex has shifted to calling them this with Ritual of the Mahjarrat and Akrisae the Doomed (who is not a brother or really at all related to the six brothers. If you see references to "Barrows Brothers" chance them to "Barrow wights" where appropriate. Thanks! Armadyl symbol.png Nightgunner Talk Illuminated Book of Law.png 22:16, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Only the mahjarrat call them that, wights just mean creature they are still the barrows brothers to humans.
They were referred to as such in the FAQ on the forums, as well. Calling them brothers is extremely innaccurate with Akrisae as one of them now... and since when has the wiki been from a human-centric view, anyway?

In the reward scroll of Ritual of the Mahjarrat, they are called Barrows Brothers, all 7 of them What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 23:11, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
After consulting the Knowledge Base, I have moved it back to brothers. Brothers doesn't necessarily mean biologically related. I think in this case what it means is that they're bonded by a cause (to guard the treasure and kill intruders), creating a fraternity in their shared purpose What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 01:43, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Rename[edit source]

This page should probably be renamed to include "The" as shown in the Beasts tab (similarly, Barrows: Rise of the Six and Twin Furies should also be renamed):
