Barbarian Training. Barbarians are brawny attackable NPCs who are part of the Fremennik. Barbarians are generally located in Gunnarsgrunn, west of Varrock and the Barbarian Outpost. Players may speak to barbarians, but they will almost always respond with hostility and ask you to fight them. Additionally, during battle, they may sometimes cry "FOR GUNNAR!"
Barbarians are usually fought by lower-levelled players for relatively easy experience. Although they hit low, they are somewhat accurate. It should be noted that the barbarians can have different weapons, most of which are non-existent for players, and they vary in accuracy against certain armour types.
If a player is like most melee fighters, attacking a Barbarian while wearing plate armour, they should avoid the barbarians wielding hammers and try to only fight the ones with spears and swords.
Each barbarian has a different examine text.
Acelin, a guard in the Barbarian Village.
Fafner, a tough barbarian warrior.
Lydspor, a well-travelled barbarian warrior.
Aitan, a barbarian archer.
Siegfried, a young guard in the Barbarian Village.
Adolpho, a barbarian warrior with a warhammer.
Fasolt, a strong barbarian warrior.
Minarch, a barbarian who likes his beer.
Alberich, a fierce barbarian warrior.
Siegmund, a guard in the Barbarian Village.
Adelino, a barbarian warrior with a big axe.
Hagen, a guard in the Barbarian Village.
Wotan, a sturdy barbarian warrior.
Sieglinde, a muscular barbarian warrior.
Gutrune, a mighty barbarian warrior.
Edelschwarz, a barbarian warrior with a spear.
Brunnhilde, a fierce barbarian warrior.

Even though they are supposedly against magic, they drop runes very often.
Previously, Barbarians used to yell a battle cry (YEEEEEEEEAARRRGGGGHHHHHHHH) which had sound.
Even the Barbarians at the Barbarian Outpost may sometimes yell "FOR GUNNAR", even though the player is nowhere near Gunnarsgrunn/ Barbarian Village
Female barbarians were previously known as Barbarian woman, but an update changed this.
You can challenge the Barbarian in the Blue Moon Inn to a shouting match by offering to buy her a drink.
Brunnhilde, Edelschwarz, Fafner, Alberich and Siegfried can be found at both the Barbarian Village and Barbarian Outpost.
Using a beer glass on one of the barrels in the Barbarian Outpost will cause the barbarians there to attack you.
