This week brings the arrival of many additions to your skills that are all barbaric in origin. Some of these new activities are easy for most players, others will test your survivability to the limits...
Otto Godblessed has been researching his history and training people in the ways of his ancestors, and now he's ready to teach you. From his hut on the banks of the lake at the top of Baxtorian Falls, you'll go Fishing with your bare hands, mix fish eggs into your potions, wield one-handed spears and, finally, go deep into the ancient cavern beneath the lake.
The new abilities you can learn from Otto have new things to do right up to level 95 Firemaking, 85 Crafting, 96 Fishing, 76 Strength, 85 Herblore and 90 Smithing. If you're keen to haul sharks from the sea bare-handed or to send ancient barbarian heroes to their rest in style, you'd best check out Otto's training. And then there's the cavern...
Once you gain access to the Ancient Cavern, you'll find some of the most dangerous beasts in all the lands of RuneScape, beasts that the barbarians have been fighting for centuries. Of course, danger comes with rewards, and there are rumours of a rather impressive-looking red helm sometimes dropped by the new mithril dragons.
