Barbarian Village Main Area

Barbarian Village is a small village along the River Lum. It is south of Edgeville and west of Varrock. The village is also one of the smallest inhabited locations in all of RuneScape. The entire village is a multi-combat area, allowing many players to attack one barbarian - or many barbarians to attack one player.



In years 32-60 of the Fifth age, when the Fremenniks attacked Misthalin and the Imcando Dwarves in their series of campaigns to stop the use of rune stones, they were eventually forced to settle peacefully, building what is now known as Barbarian Village.


Barbarian Village can be entered east from Varrock, west from Falador, south from Draynor Village, and north from Edgeville.

Barbarians are scattered throughout the whole village. The barbarians in the village are levels 9 and 10, while the barbarians in the longhall are level 17. Also roaming the longhall is 'Gunthor the Brave', the barbarians' mighty leader, who is level 29.

Players, both F2P and P2P, can directly teleport into Barbarian Village if they have the Skull Sceptre, a reward from the Stronghold of Security. It has five charges, allowing for five free teleports to the village, and cannot be recharged.



Peksa's Helmet Shop


Peksa's Helmet Shop is the only non-members store where players can buy helmets, other than Valaine's shop in the Champions' Guild, which sells black full helmets.

Peksa sells and buys medium and full helmets of bronze, iron, steel, mithril and adamant.

There is also a perpetually burning fire in the middle of Peksa's Helmet Shop which players can use to cook the fish they caught in the fishing spot just outside the village's walls.

Other Buildings of Interest

Long Hall

Barbarian Village's Feast Hall or Longhall

This bar is located in the large building in the north of the village, known as the 'long hall'. Free beer and cooked meat respawns on the tables. However, level 17 barbarians and the level 29 Gunthor the Brave are inside the bar, so low level players are taking a risk to go in. There is a single level 15 ranged Barbarian inside or around the hall, a change from the older versions where all Barbarians could attack using throwing axes.

This is a popular area to train ranged combat, using the tables for cover then moving out to collect arrows and drops.

Barbarian Watch Tower

North of the East Entrance of the village is a watch tower where players can find Hunding. He tells players about the tribe's history.

Stronghold of Security

Reached through a hole located in the mining area, this dungeon, available from 4 July 2006, is open to all players, member or free-to-play, purposely designed to help players know more about security in RuneScape. It is a medium-sized dungeon that gives rewards for making it to the centre of each level, including a new emote and a choice between 2 unique pairs of boots. However, to get there, players must answer a series account-based security questions which are asked by the sentient doors. Players will not be allowed to pass through the doors until they answer the questions correctly. Various monsters live in the dungeon, including goblins, minotaurs, and skeletons.

  • Fishing spots: To the east of the village are some fishing spots in the river. Players can fish with feathers or bait at these spots. This is one of the most popular fishing spots in the free world because of its relative proximity to the bank in Edgeville where players can store their fishes as well as the Stronghold of Security and the Edgeville dungeon. It is also very popular for power fishing players, fish scavengers, and fish beggars. A good way to obtain trout or salmon is to trade bait for food instead of begging for it if there are multiple beggars around.
  • Spinning wheel: To the east of Peksa's Helmet Shop is a small house with a spinning wheel. Players here can turn wool into balls of wool. Or, if a player is a member, can spin flax.
  • Potter's wheel: To the south of the house with the spinning wheel is a house with a potter's wheel. Players can use clay with this and the potter's oven nearby to craft small items. In the free worlds, this is the only location of the Potter's wheel and oven outside the crafting guild.
  • Barbarian Village mine: In the very centre of the village is a small crop of rocks. Coal and tin are the only ores that can be obtained from the rocks. It is common for players to mine the coal here in all worlds and the tin rocks to be ignored.

  •  If a player uses an unfired bowl on the pottery oven, you receive the message: "You put the Bowl in the oven. The Bowl hardens in the oven. You remove a Bowl from the oven." but if a player clicks on the oven and sets the quantity even if it is 1 the message is: "You put a Bowl in the oven. You remove the Bowl from the oven."
