Barbarian Assault is a safe team-based Combat minigame located at the Barbarian Outpost. A team of five players must work together to battle 10 waves of Penance, before finally defeating the Penance Queen herself.

There are no requirements for this minigame, although a player with a higher combat level will generally perform better. As this is a safe minigame, no items will be lost on death.


Captain Cain

The Barbarian Assault minigame is a battleground established by the Barbarians to fight against Penance creatures. Players must complete the tutorial by talking to Captain Cain before they can play the minigame.

Players must form a team of five players in order to play. Completion of each wave will reward each player with Honour points specific to the role they chose. Honour points can be used to redeem a variety of combat-based equipment, notably the fighter torso. Players can also gamble Honour points for a chance to receive the rare dragon chainbody or the pet penance queen.

Players can check the Honour points they have earned by talking to Commander Connad or by checking the blackboard.

Getting there

The Barbarian Assault arena can be found, underground, at the Barbarian Outpost just north of Baxtorian Falls. There are several methods by which players can get here:


Barbarian Assault is a safe minigame and, as such, players will not lose any items upon death. As combat is the minigame's main component, high Defence and Hitpoints levels provide an advantage.

If a teammate is killed, the entire group must restart the wave. Contrary to certain beliefs, firing the cannon in Barbarian Assault does not reduce the team's points received for that wave[1].
