Guthan the Infested is the third oldest of the six Barrow brothers.

He attacks with melee, and his set effect allows him to heal himself at a 1:1 ratio, so if he deals 20 damage and the effect occurs, he would recover 20 hitpoints. His effect is visible; three ghostly entities surround Guthan's opponents and circle around them in an upwards motion. Even though he uses his Warspear, it has the same sound effect as Verac's flail.

Nearly all players "tank mage" Guthan. This means that they will mage while wearing their melee armour, such as rune, granite, etc. Even though wearing metal while maging reduces your mage bonus significantly, Guthan's magic defence is so low that you will be hitting almost as high as with Mystic or other robes. This strategy is used so he won't be able to hit you often, thus, reducing the chances of healing himself.

Black Salamander is recommended as it is not affected by the player's magic attack bonus too much. However, slayer dart may be used as a substitute. He is equipped with his own set of armour, Guthan's set, which is obtainable (albeit rarely) by players who complete the Barrows.
