Hey guys!

Today, I've decided to take on a huge challenge! I will study, compile, and provide the first accurate statistics centered around barrows and its rewards.

Stipulations placed around research:
Minimum hours spent barrowed to consider statistics accurate: 150 hours
Average time spent barrowing a day: 6 hours
All times will be recorded.
All drops will not be sold or distributed until atleast 150 hours of barrowing have been done.
I will provide photographic proof of all findings. (ie drops, etc)
All information compiled, if used, should be credited to myself before doing so.
I will update this thread every day with progress, time spent, and items gained.
I will not calculate rune costs/rune gains, etc. Doesn't interest me.
I will be using a ring of wealth.

You can keep track of my progress here: http://services.rune...e Tiger&submit=

Goals in doing this research:
I will calculate percentages pertaining to how often any particular barrows item is looted.
I will calculate the average amount of items required to obtain any barrows item.
I will calculate my own personal average run-time.
I will calculate average hourly profits. The way I will be doing so is compiling a list of average total earnings each day and then average each daily average, and also, adding the total earnings and dividing it by the total time. Both methods could provide some interesting insight. Though they should be fairly similar. (I'd like some input on how you predict either of these calculations to work out)


Future plans:
I plan to have this posted on both tip.it and xp-waste by the end of this month.
If anyone can make me some graphics for the thread, you will be credited and I'd be extremely appreciative. Perhaps a portion of the final profits could be yours?
I will hold a massive give-a-way at the end of this study in which I will distribute around 10m of the total profit. (I will allow TRR to host and distribute these funds, if they want)

How can you trust the accuracy of my research? I've worked at multiple labs compiling, recording and assessing information for the past 3 years. I'll do my best to provide you with accurate, thoroughly checked, double-checked and triple-checked information.

Fantastic idea, I can't wait to read your findings. I did something similar (although less in-depth) from 80-99 fishing, mainly because I had nothing better to do while my pixel proxy slaved over the beach.

Really good idea. Boss hunting profits are down and Barrows prices still seem fairly high.

Not even great items, either. You could easily make even more if you'd gotten some Helms.

It'll be nice to see what you find. I've been through 30 runs, no item, so I haven't been since.
