Beneath the Barbarian Outpost, there are hordes of creatures coming out of the caves. These creatures are thought to be created by the gods as punishment for all the sins committed by the people of Runescape. Venture deep into the earth to face the vile creatures and their fearsome Penance Queen!
One Small Tutorial
Before venturing in the depths of the Barbarian Outpost, you’ll be required to go through a long tutorial which will introduce you to the basics of the activity such as the different roles you can play with and their purpose. Here is what you will be learning.
Once the tutorial is complete, you will be offered a Queen tutorial book which contains the steps to make an Omega egg. This is the weapon that you will need in order to defeat the queen, which will be explained later on in this guide as well.
Did you notice that ladder next to Captain Cain? Sure you did, but now, you can use it to access the wave rooms lobby! But first, you need to stop by the bank deposit box, which is just in front of the ladder. Items such as any cape, arrows, runes, and food are to be banked as you won’t be needing them, even if you’re geared as a wizard or an archer. Unneeded runescape items banked, you’re now ready to go downstairs! Do so, and you will find yourself in the wave lobby room. A full game of Barbarian assault constitutes of 10 waves of increasing difficulty with a small variety of penance monsters that are to be defeated to get to the next wave, so, each wave has its own waiting room here. Note that you may leave the waiting rooms as you wish without losing your current wave process. If you wish to restart your wave progress, talk to Captain Cain again and ask him to reset your progress, you won’t be losing anything though, as you will be given a wave room ticket, according to your current progress. That way, if you want to team with friends but have unmatching waves, you can reset your progress then continue with that game later, handy! As you can see in the following area map.
There is no way to get lost here, as every room has the wave number writing on the floor so you can easily locate them, from 1 to 10. But as you might have seen there is also an eleventh room with an arrow marked on it. This is the Quickstart room, to which anyone can enter (Note: Entering this room will reset any process you might have) to have a “test drive” of the activity, you could count it as wave 0. Something special about this room is that teams will be automatically picked inside this room.
