|1.  About this guide  (ATG)|
\___________________________/

This guide is to inform you of how to obtain the set items, what they do when
you have the fullset, and the stats on them.  I get asked many, many questions
about my armour (I myself use Torag), so I thought I would write this guide so
that everyone can know.

\__________________________________/

i.   Coming Prepared  (CPR)
--------------------

There are many different items that you could take to help you, but these are
the items I suggest.

- Fremmenik Helm (Archer, Warrior, Beserker etc), melee def and slight mage def
- Plate armour, body, legs and shield
- Hide armour, change to this when fighting the mage, just take body and legs
- Melee weapon, although they have low magic def, you will need to wear robes
  and then you will suffer from low defence, so mage isn't recommended.  Also
  there are no "safe spots"
- Spade, this is required
- Teleport runes for when chest is opened
- Runes for bones to bananas, 1 nat, 2 water, 2 earth, sounds stupid, but the 
  extra food really helps if you want to rack up lots of kills.
- As many sharks as you can carry

ii.  Getting there  (GTT)
-----------------

The set items are found in the new Barrows area.  This is located to the east of
Mort Myre.  You do not have to complete any quests to get there, except Priest
in Peril to get to Canifis.  Mort Myre is located far south of Canifis.  First,
you must go through the swamps.  Here, you will get attacked by Shades.  They
do not hurt you, but may turn you food into Rotten food, which you obviouslly
can't eat =p.  Once, through here, (head south) go along the long winding
road, then head east through Mort Myre, til you come to a bridge.  Simply cross
it and head north and east, into the fenced area and there you are.

You will see 6 mounds of earth.  When you are ready, click the Dig option on
your spade, and you will enter a catacomb.  Inside is a sarcophagus.  When you
click on it, you will get attacked by one of the 6 brothers, or find the way
to the catacomb tunnels.  See "What to fight (WTF)" to ,see info on the
brothers.  If you get a brother attack you, you can either kill him
(recommended), or go back up the stairs to the surface.  All the brothers you
don't kill before entering the tunnels will attack you randomly when you open
any door in the tunnels, which could take you by surprise.

Note - While you are in any of the catacombs, your prayer decreases about every
20 seconds.

When you have killed the 5 brothers that appear in the catacomb chambers
or you are ready, find the chamber that leads to the tunnels, click the
sarcophagus, and say you want to go in.

The layout of the tunnels is fairly simple, but it can be hard to navigate,
because you can only open certain doors.  Your best bet to get to the chest is
to head toward the middle, first, go to one side, either north or south, then
head east or west as far as possible.  You will now be in a corner. Go the
other direction as you went last, across 3 rooms.  Now go the opposite
direction to the way you went first.  You should end up at a door, that when
you click open, a puzzle appears.  It is a fairly simple puzzle.  If you get
it right, you will be able to open the door and get to the chest.  If not,
repeat the above steps, but go in different directions to find another door
into the chest room.

It is best to wait outside the door with the puzzle, and kill the monsters in
there to count towards your kill count.  Also, after about 20 minutes, they
will no longer auto attack you.  This is helpful as it is very annoying when
you are trying to solve the puzzle and you keep getting attacked.  However,
if you go through a door, you will get auto attacked again.

Once you have opened the chest, you will need to teleport out if possible, if
not, go as fast as you can to the south east, and up the ladder.  When you
open it, rocks will fall on you every few seconds, damaging you.

Note - The only time your kill count resets to 0 is when you open the chest.

iii. What to fight (WTF)
------------------

There are 6 brothers located in the barrows.  They are -

- Ahrim the Blighted		(Level 98)
	He is the mage.  Could hit you the hardest if you're in plate armour.

- Dharok the Wretched		(Level 115)
	Uses Great Axe.  Can hit hard, but it's quite slow, so you'll have time
	to eat.

- Guthan the Infested		(Level 115)
	One of the hardest, second highest defence, and annoying set effect.

- Karil the Tainted		(level 98)
	The ranger.  Not too hard to hit, but can still hit hard, at a fairly
	quick speed.

- Torag the Corrupted		(level 115)
	Has the highest defence, and uses crush weapons, but doesn't hit that
	hard.

- Verac the Defiled		(Level 115)
	Not very high defence, but the flail can hit through protect from
	melee.

There are also several other types of monster located in the tunnels.  They
are low levels, and are easy to kill.  They too count toward your kill count.

iv.  Does kill count matter  (DKC)
---------------------------

As of yet, I am not certain whether kill count affects the reward you get in
the chest.  However, I think that it is mainly luck, and whether you have killed
the 6 brothers or not.  For example, I opened the chest at 166 kills, and got
Dharok's helm, and once at 550+ and got runes and coins.

Your chances of getting a set item or not good, but the exp is fairly fast while
you are killing there, so it is worth it for that.  As a general guide, it seems
better to kill all 6 brothers, and at least 100 kill count, because even if you
dont get a set item, you will get considerably more runes.

iii.  Repair Costs  (RCO)
------------------

All set items cost the same to repair as the others.  The following people
will repair it for you -

- Dunstan in Burthorpe
- Bob in Lumbridge
- Tindel Marchant in Port Khazard

The armour has to be repaired after 15 hours of combat use.  It does not count
if you are wearing it and doing anything else.  As the armour degrades, the
stats do not change, unlike crystal.  It is only tradeable at 100% or 0%.  It
wears down in 25% marks, i.e, 100%, 75%, 50%, etc.  The repair costs are -

Weapons	 	- 100k
Body armour	- 90k
Leg armour	- 80k
Helmets		- 60k

If you repair it before it reaches 0%, then the cost will be reduced.  If it
is at 50% for example, you will only have to pay 50%, i.e, 50k for the weapons.
