Choose Reward Type

Rewards from Barbarian Assault are either Honor Points or charging a Penance horn/Penance master horn with experience to be used on Mining, Agility, or Firemaking.

For more on the experience reward see Penance horn.

Earning Honour Points

Players gain Honour Points as they play Barbarian Assault (Minigame). The amount of Honour Points that a player receives is based on their performance (Individual Honour Points), and how well they worked with their team (Team Honour Points), along with the difficulty of the wave. Note that Individual Points are counted as double. It is important for the player to do their role effectively, so that they are not penalised twice (i.e Individual Points reduction, and Team Points reduction). These are a form of currency in the minigame and can be used to buy rewards.

This is an example of the Advanced Breakdown Points Table for an Attacker:

Advanced Breakdown Points Table
Reward Contributor Notes
# Honour Points Importance of Teamwork
Team Individual
Runners that got past 4 -10 Defender Healer needs to call out Bait type
Rangers killed 5 4 4 Attacker Collector needs to call out Attack style
Fighters killed 5 4 4 Attacker Collector needs to call out Attack style
Healers killed 5 3 Healer Defender needs to call out Poison type
Runners killed 5 9 Defender Healer needs to call out Bait type
Player hitpoints replenished 60 3 Healer
Wrong poison packs used 2 -0 Healer Defender needs to call out Poison type
Eggs collected (minus exploded) 20 4 Collector Attacker needs to call out Colour
Failed Attacker attacks 10 -9 -9 Attacker Collector needs to call out Attack type
Total 10 -1
Honour Points 9 Team + Individual

This is the formula (approximate) for calculating Honour Points for each Role:

Honour Points for Waves 1-9
Role Points earned Penalties (Max: 10 points)
Collector Egg collected / 4.5 (rounded down) Exploded eggs (subtracted from total eggs collected)
Healer (Total / 18) plus
Healers killed x 0.7 (rounded down)
Each wrong poison used / 4
Attacker (Fighters killed - 1) + (Rangers killed - 1) Each wrong attack style x 0.9 (rounded down)
Defender Runners killed x 1.8 (rounded down) Runners getting through x 3
Entire Team The sum of all the above points will be given to everyone on the team The sum of all the above penalties is deducted from everyone on the team
For completing Wave 10, each player gets 80 points for their role (plus 5 points in each of the other 3 roles.)
  • Note: Maximum penalty of 10 may affect team totals, but individual totals can only go down to 0 (i.e. no negative value).

Players may then spend their Honour Points by talking to Commander Connad, who can be found in the Barbarian Assault entrance hall, near Captain Cain. Players may choose to spend their points by either:

  • Upgrading their level in a particular role (Level 1-5).
  • Purchasing Penance armour.
  • Gambling to obtain items, including the extremely rare Dragon chainbody.

Level Upgrade

Players may upgrade the level in a particular role from Level 1 up to Level 5. By upgrading their levels, the player gains extra abilities such as extra damage, higher healing, etc. However, each upgrade requires spending a certain amount of Honour Points. A total of 1,400 Honour Points is needed to obtain a Level 5 role. 5,600 points is required to obtain Level 5 in all roles.

Abilities gained by upgrading:

A summary of the level upgrades for each role:

Level Honour Points Collector Healer Attacker Defender
1 Start level Bag holds 2 eggs Heals 10 hp +1 Damage Lure 4 spaces
2 200 Bag holds 4 eggs + Conversion chance 70% Heals 15 hp +2 Damage Lure 5 spaces
3 300

Bag holds 6 eggs + Conversion chance 80%

Heals 20 hp +3 Damage Lure 6 spaces
4 400

Bag holds 7 eggs + Conversion chance 90%

Heals 25 hp +4 Damage Lure 8 spaces
5 500

Bag holds 8 eggs + Conversion chance 100%

Heals 35 hp +5 Damage Lure 10 spaces

Armour

A fighter hat reward, cost: 275 points.

Players may also purchase Penance armour using their Honour Points. Certain items require the player to kill the Penance Queen. Each time the player wants one of these items, he or she must kill the queen once. The kills do not "stack". If a player is only missing a few dozen points and will probably be able to earn them before their next Queen kill it is probably worthwhile to keep saving up. Of course this may mean leaving one's current team. Also note that points from all roles are required.

Gambling

Players may then spend their Honour Points by talking to Commander Connad, who can be found in the Barbarian Assault entrance hall, near Captain Cain. By gambling, players may obtain various items, including the extremely rare Dragon chainbody.

There are 3 methods of gambling, each with different costs:

  • Gamble low: costs 10 Honour Points
  • Gamble medium: costs 20 Honour Points
  • Gamble high: costs 30 Honour Points, and requires the player to have killed the Penance Queen at least once.

Please note that the odds of getting a Dragon chainbody are exceedingly slim, seeing as it is a very rare and valuable item. The odds of obtaining it are, as quoted from Jagex, "About the same odds as Zamorak suddenly deciding to give up his evil ways.", which, according to RuneScape mythology, is nearly zero.
