Barbarians are attackable NPCs found at the Barbarian Village and Outpost; they are good for lower level training because they have poor Defence and there are many obstacles in the Barbarian Village to trap them behind. If the player chooses to talk to them, they will taunt the player with quotes such as "Wanna fight?" or "You come to fight, ja?" and immediately attack; players can avoid this by immediately exiting the dialogue instead of clicking to continue.

The barbarians within the Ancient Cavern are level 132. The ones at Barbarian Village are combat level 10, but the ones inside the hall are level 17 (except Gunthor who is the strongest barbarian in the village at level 29).
