Barker toad: Misc

The Barker toad is a familiar players can summon with 66 summoning. It requires a Barker toad pouch to summon.

Despite requiring level 66 summoning to use, the Barker Toad has a timer of 8 minutes, the third-shortest timer of any familiar, behind only the Dreadfowl and Spirit Wolf. As a result, it's very rarely used.


Barker toad pouch

A Barker toad pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 11 spirit shards, a Gold charm and a swamp toad. If players exchange their Barker Toad pouches at Bogrog, they will receive 8 spirit shards per pouch. Players must also have 71 Summoning to be able to exchange this pouch.


Despite being a lower level scroll than that of the Arctic Bear pouch; which requires 71 summoning and is the highest gold charm familiar a player is capable of creating - the Barker Toad is a more popular choice for training summoning. This is mainly due to the high cost of the Arctic Bear pouch relative to the cost of the Barker Toad. Normally an Arctic Bear pouch costs ten times the amount of a Barker Toad, and only for slightly over 5xp - thus making the Barker Toad the best option for Gold Charms when it comes to summoning.

Toad bark scroll

The Toad bark scroll enables the use of the Toad Bark special ability for a Barker toad. Using a Barker toad pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates ten Toad bark scrolls.


Toad Bark

Toad Bark is a special move of the Barker Toad, activated by a Toad bark scroll. When activated, a magic-based attack that can inflict up to 18 damage on an opponent is unleashed. Each use of a Toad bark scroll requires six special move points.


Cannonball is a right-click ability of the Barker Toad, to use it you must first "load" (use a cannonball on the Toad) it with a cannonball, and then, when in combat, right-click and select "Cannonball". The attack does not hit high and due to the waste of inventory space combined with the other flaws of the toad (the short lifespan and the vast amount of summoning points it consumes) renders this special attack near useless. Its current max hit is 30 with cannonball; however with the aforementioned reasons, this attack rarely hits and splashes frequently.

Note: If the toad is killed with a cannonball installed, the cannonball also disappears.



  • Its dialogue is similar to that of a circus barker.
