The profit rate assumes 27 kills per hour. Your actual profits may be higher or lower depending on your speed and luck.

As the Crazy archaeologist is located in the Wilderness with the strong possibility of player killers appearing, only take a few expensive items. If Desert Treasure is completed, the fastest way to reach him is via the Dareeyak Teleport spell, or its corresponding tablet to teleport directly to the ruins. Alternatively using a Burning Amulet to teleport to the Bandit Camp, and running north-west to the ruins is a viable option for those without Desert Treasure completion. If you wish to take a detour, as to avoid player killers, you can teleport to the Corporeal Beast's lair via a games necklace, exit, and then run a bit south-east to the Wilderness Obelisk. Keep using the obelisk until you finally reach level 27 Wilderness where you'll run south-west towards the Western Ruins in circa level 22-24 Wilderness. Although he is within the teleport range in the Wilderness (up to level 30 Wilderness), you may get teleblocked.

It is also noteworthy, if using Iban Blast, to factor in the cost of Death Runes, as their price can significantly lower profits.

Nonetheless, the most effective way is to use Magic while activating Protect from Missiles and avoiding his special attack of explosive books. Get ready to run out of the area whenever he exclaims, "Rain of knowledge!" All in all, the Crazy archaeologist is a relatively simple boss, but a simple mistake can cause some damage to you with his special attack.
