Barbarians are brawny attackable NPCs who are part of the Fremennik. Barbarians are generally located in Gunnarsgrunn (village west of Varrock, more commonly known as the Barbarian Village), and the Barbarian Outpost. Players may speak to barbarians, but they will almost always respond with hostility and ask you to fight them. Additionally, during battle, they may sometimes cry "FOR GUNNAR!"

Barbarians are usually fought by lower-levelled players for relatively easy experience. Although they hit low, they are somewhat accurate. Barbarians can have different weapons, most of which are non-existent for players.

A barbarian woman can be interviewed during the Barbarians v. Wizards court case.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • ninja 5 January 2015 (Update):
    • Numerous barbarians have had their models and animations tweaked so that they now hold their weapons correctly.
  • patch 1 February 2011 (Update):
    • Barbarians no longer swing two-handed swords with one hand.
  • patch 4 January 2011 (Update):
    • Various barbarian women had their spears offset from their hands.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Even though they are supposedly against magic, they drop runes very often.
  • Previously, Barbarians used to yell a battle cry (YEEEEEEEEAARRRGGGGHHHHHHHH) which had sound.
  • Even the Barbarians at the Barbarian Outpost may sometimes yell "FOR GUNNAR", even though the player is nowhere near Gunnarsgrunn/Barbarian Village
  • Female barbarians were previously known as barbarian woman, but an update changed this.
  • You can challenge the barbarian in the Blue Moon Inn to a shouting match by offering to buy her a drink.
  • Barbarians named Brunnhilde, Edelschwarz, Fafner, Alberich and Siegfried can be found at both the Barbarian Village and the Barbarian Outpost.
  • Using a beer glass on one of the barrels in the Barbarian Outpost will cause the barbarians there to attack you.
  • In Barbarian Village a barbarian with a sword is named Lydspor, as seen when examined. This is Danish for Soundtrack.
