OSRS Barrows Gloves Guide: Fast & Efficient

OSRS Barrows Gloves Guide: Fast & Efficient


Barrows gloves are the best and most popular gloves available in Oldschool Runescape, There are no other gloves that provide as much bonus across all combat styles as these do. They offer the second-highest bonuses in all attack styles: they offer the second-highest offensive bonus for ranged, the second-highest offensive bonus in Magic, and the second-highest bonus in strength.


Although Barrows gloves don't require defense, Pures can't obtain them because of the defense experience gained from completing the quest requirements. You need to complete the entire Recipe for Disaster quest to have the ability to purchase these gloves from the culinaromancer’s chest in the Lumbridge basement for 130,000 coins.



The fastest way to get the Barrows Gloves


The Recipe for Disaster series comprises 10 parts: the beginning, the 8 subquests, and the grand finale, which requires 175 quest points. The steps below are the best methods to get the 175 quest points and simultaneously get the quest requirements for Barrows gloves from scratch. I suggest using Runelite's quest helper plugin when doing the quests below.


To become faster and more proficient, purchase the teleports and stamina potions and the items you'll need for the quests in the same step.
