Barrows gloves are the best pair of gloves that exist in Old School RuneScape. They can be purchased for 130,000 coins from the Culinaromancer’s Chest in the Lumbridge Castle cellar after completing the entire Recipe for Disaster quest. 175 quest points will be needed in order to start the “Final Battle” in Recipe for Disaster. Barrows gloves provide the best offensive statistics for Melee and Ranged, having better stats than black d’hide vambraces. They have the second highest Magic offensive bonus behind the Tormented bracelet, which lacks any defensive statistics. They also have the highest Strength bonus of any gloves in the game; however, they do not give any bonus to Prayer.
While these gloves lack a Defence requirement, they cannot be acquired at 1 Defence because of the experience gained from completing the necessary quests to wear them. It is possible to obtain and wear Barrows gloves with level 40 Defence when all quest requirements and xp rewards are calculated.
The price of all Culinaromancer’s gloves can be reduced by completing the Elite Lumbridge & Draynor Diary, bringing down the price for Barrows and Dragon gloves to 104,000 coins.
As with all Culinaromancer’s gloves, this piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
