The Barbarian Outpost is a fenced stronghold which comprises two sections. The first, "outer" section requires the completion of the Bar Crawl miniquest to access. The outer section houses nine Barbarians, good for low-level training and Clue Scroll drops, and several chickens. The second, "inner" section may be accessed by climbing through a pipe requiring level 35 agility, found in the first, outer section. The inner section is an agility course that has both a basic route and an advanced route. The basic route gives 153.2 agility experience per lap and requires 35 agility to use. The advanced route gives 740.7 agility experience per lap and requires 90 agility to use.

Access to the outer section is a requirement of the Scorpion Catcher quest, and access to the inner section is a requirement of the Horror from the Deep quest.

Locals will address players who have completed The Fremennik Trials by their Fremennik name.



The Barbarian Outpost is located north-west of Seers' Village and north-east of the Gnome Stronghold. Outside of the Outpost is the Barbarian assault minigame, and the complex is surrounded by several willow trees. There are four main ways of getting to the Outpost:

Recommendations for Agility Training



  • A method of teleportation to leave, as the Outpost is quite remote.
  • Food, most obstacles have the ability to deal damage. However, players with high enough agility will not fail any obstacles.
  • Energy potions to run all the time. However, players with high enough agility will not run out of run energy.


The use of Weight-reducing clothing may help players be able to run for longer. However, a negative weight gives no benefit over having 0 kg, so unless other heavy equipment is worn or heavy items carried which would make players' weight much over 0 kg, there is no need for weight-reducing clothing. In addition, players with high enough of an agility level may be able to continuously complete the course without running out of energy even when having a very high weight (and not using energy potions).

Basic course

Barbarian Agility Course

The basic course is most often used by people with an agility level between 35 and 52. Skullball is actually faster experience at these levels, but the basic Barbarian course is popular nonetheless, due to it being easier and more known than Skullball.

As with any agility course, the most experience is given to the player upon completion of a full lap, so running the course in the intended order is more beneficial than repeating one obstacle.

On the basic course, all obstacles except for the crumbling walls are failable below certain agility levels, and deal damage on a failed attempt. Additionally, failure on the Ropeswing or Balancing ledge require the player to climb back up to the obstacle's starting point to regain their position in the course.

Each lap gives 139.5 agility experience, including the bonus of 46.2 experience on the last obstacle.

Advanced course

The Advanced Barbarian Agility course, or Extended Barbarian Agility course, was released on 22 June 2009. It uses some obstacles from the basic course as well as some new obstacles. It requires much higher agility and gives much faster experience than the basic course. With a requirement of 90 agility, the Advanced Barbarian Agility course is the highest level agility course in the game. It also gives the fastest agility experience at a very high agility level, although the Advanced Gnome Course is a close second.

There is bonus experience for completing the entire course. The entire course includes the rope swing and log, and these two obstacles must be completed to earn the full 740.7 agility experience per lap. It is not faster experience to skip the rope swing and log.

Several obstacles on the advanced course may be failed; however, at 93+ agility, all obstacles on the advanced course have a 100% success rate.

After the player has successfully completed 250 laps, he or she, may talk to Gunnjorn to get the Agile top. The counter is not reset if a lap is not successfully completed. The Agile top may be re-obtained from Gunnjorn if lost without completing an additional 250 laps.

Players may of course continue to use the advanced course for experience after receiving the Agile top. The fastest possible time that a full lap can be completed in is 61 game ticks, or about 37.0 seconds. It is possible to gain over 72,000 agility experience per hour at maximum, although anything over maybe 66,000 would be a good rate.


  • Only one player may use a rope swing at any one time. The course used to only have one rope swing, but a second rope swing was added, presumably to deal with crowding at the course.
  • The spring device in the extended course has a crafting icon when scrolled over with custom cursors on.
