Barbarian Assault Minigame

Originally written by: Queen Skilla

Introduction

 

Barbarian Assault is a minigame in RuneScape that involves killing, collecting, healing, and defending of the Penance! This minigame is quite tricky, but can be mastered with lots of practice. This minigame requires teamwork, patience, and more.

 

Requirements

Nothing is 'required', but it is strongly recommended to have a fairly high combat level, hitpoint level, good armor, etc.

 

Getting There

 

The Barbarian Assault Arena is located north-west of Seers' Village.

The easiest way to get to the arena would be to use a Games Necklace30d8mtg.gif(which can be made or bought from other players), and to rub it. Click 'Barbarian Outpost'. A handy banking option would be to use the games necklace to teleport to the Games Room, and use the Rogues Den bank. It's very handy.

You are now at the Barbarian Outpost Arena. Enter the building a few steps to the east.

 

Beginners' Info.

 

3yo4kyu.png

Talk to Captain Cain.He'll introduce you to the arena, then will prompt you to take a tutorial on how to take the game. You must complete this before you are allowed to play the minigame.

 

Tutorials in Red mean that you have to complete the tutorial(s) before it.

Tutorials in Yellow mean that this is the next tutorial.

Tutorials in Green mean that you have already finished this tutorial.

tutoriallistmo7.gif

 

All of the tutorials will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. When you finish them, you can start getting prepared to play the game. It is recommended that you empty most of your inventory, except for the book that you got from Captain Cain. There is a bank deposit box in the north-east part of the building. You can deposit items, but cannot take them out.

If you're wearing a cape, then put it in the bank deposit box, because the barbarians won't let you wear it during the game. You should also note that if you are going to be a mage during the game, you cannot use runes that have been runecrafted, niether can rangers use arrows that have been flecthed. Additionally, food cannot be brought into the game.

 

 

Joining a Team

 

To enter the waiting room, where you can join a team, you have to descend down the ladder just in front of the bank deposit box. You will notice 10 numbered rooms, one for each wave. The rooms have a number in the floor that stands for what wave it is for. The wave 1 room is in the north-west corner of this dungeon.

 

There is a table in each waiting room with scrolls on it. If you would like to form your own team, then you should take a scroll3zapm3q.gif. You have to use your scroll on other members in the waiting room, and you'll have to get their permission to be on your team. Alternatively, you can join someone else's team if they use their scroll on you. If you are using your own team, then you must write the job that you want to do by clicking 'Write-role' on the scroll. Each team must consist of at least: 1 attacker, 1 healer, 1 defender, and 1 collector. The fifth person gets to decide what role they'll have, so there will actually be a job with 2 people doing it. When your scroll has 4 other names on it, then descend down the ladder in the north-west of the room.

 

There is also an additionally larger room to the west, which you don't have to sign up in teams for. You just get randomly picked on what job to have, and when there is 5 people, the game will start.

 

Playing the Game

 

Once the game has started, your task will depend on which role you have which will be explained later in this guide. Each role is provided with a different piece of information in their interface, and you will be responsible for telling someone from a different role information that they need to succeed with a blow horn, which is provided.

 

The Attacker Role

 

When playing the game, an attacker can be easily identified by a red circle around them.

4hcg2kk.png

 

Attackers can use melee, magic, or ranged to kill the Penance Fighters and the Penance Rangers. Both of these monsters has a defensive system that enables them to protect against different types of attack. If you are using melee, then you'll have to use controlled, accurate, aggressive, or defensive. If you plan on using ranged, then you'll have to change between bronze, iron, steel, or mithril arrows. Mages will have to choose between air spells, earth spells, fire spells, or water spells.

 

The attack style that you'll use will be received from the collector, and will be displayed in the north-east corner of the screen. You are also responsible for telling the collector which type of egg to pick up with your blow horn2zohx7k.gif. Shouting out information will update the collector's interface, and they need this information to successfully do their role. So make sure that the information is correct, and you say it as soon as possible.

 

Attackers also get their own machine, which will provide all the runes and arrows you'll ever need. You cannot keep these items when the game is over, though.

 

4cc6plc.png

 

The Collector Role

Collectors will have a yellow circle around them while playing the game, shown below.

401e9l5.png

 

The collector picks up the eggs that are dropped by the Penance monsters. They can only hold so many eggs at a time, but you can temporarily store them in a bag that is provided43ghd7m.gif. The collectors then put the eggs in the egg hopper, located atop the podiums. When the egg launcher has eggs loaded in it, it can be used to inflict damage, poison, or stun the Penance monsters. There are 3 different types of eggs, green (poison)472lfkz.gif, blue (stun)2ldzrqx.gif, and red (explode)35n8mtx.gif. Unfortunately, getting the eggs is not as easy as you think. The eggs have a defensive system, that will make them explode and inflict 5 points of damage on you. Therefore, you must listen to the attacker(s) so they'll tell you what egg you can pick up at the time. You also are responsible to tell the attackers which attack styles to use with your blow horn2dt5a92.gif.

 

The Healer Role

By choosing to be a healer, you will have a green circle around your feet, shown below.

35aqjyu.png

 

Your job is to cure damage that may have been inflicted by the monsters and poison the Penance healers. To cure other players, you must take a vial from the machine (explained later in the guide), and fill it up with the water from the special healing spring, shown below. Note that you can only have one vial at a time.

4dqlq1t.png

Now you have a special healing potion with 4 doses, and can be used on other players to raise their hitpoints, cure poison, and give run energy. If the healer needs a hitpoint boost, they can't drink the potion, but instead they can just drink from the healing spring. Healers also get a special list of the names of everyone on their team, and their hitpoint levels so they know who needs medic.

2z56g4n.png

 

Healers are also responsible for poisoning Penance Healers. Penance Healers poison members on your team, and heal the other penance monsters.

4d6beie.png

 

To stop them, the healers must poison them by using poisoned foods that are obtained from the healer machine. There are poisoned worms, poisoned tofu, and poisoned meat. food.gif Only one type of food is able to poison the Penance Healers (which changes regularly). The defender will tell you what type of food will work, and in return, you must tell the defender what food they should drop on the traps with your blow horn2vcytn8.gif.

 

Healers also get their own machine that dispenses items that they need to succeed. The healer machine contains vials (you can only have one at a time), poison meat, poison tofu, and poison worms.

42s3fp5.png

 

The Defender Role

While performing their role, a defender has a blue circle around them, shown below.

42i4t5j.png

 

As a defender, your main goal is to stop the Penance Runners, shown below.

 

4d1zhfr.png

 

Penance Runners start at the very north end of the arena, and run to the south. If they manage to get to the south side of the arena, your team loses many 'honour points' (explained later). They are attracted to certain smells of food, including crackers, tofu, and worms. You must drop this food at the traps. The defender traps are located on the west and east edges of the arena. The type of food that you are have to use is communicated to you by the healer. In return, you tell the healer what food to use to poison the Penance Healers with your blow horn49ifsw5.gif.

2cqe6wz.png

Occasionally, the traps will break. The north part of the arena has some logs and a hammer, which can be used to repair a broken trap. The logs and hammer can also be used to make a barricade, so the Penance Runners will come out less often.

48x5gqt.png

.

 

The Horn Of Glory

 

The horn of glory is a larger version of the blow horn49ifsw5.gif. You can give out information to other players. It is found at the south-east of the arena. Since it is quite out of the way, it isn't recommended to use. To use it, simply click on it, and you will see a large interface. The left side has what everyone should be doing. On the right, you have an option to call out things for each role. Be sure to call out what's on the left!

The Egg Shooter

The egg shooter is a device that fires eggs at the monsters in the arena. It can either stun, poison, or explode the monsters. Red eggs explode, green eggs poison, and blue eggs stun. Eggs are collected by the collector. The egg shooter is also used to defeat the Penance Queen, which is explained next.

 

egglaunchermw9.gif

 

2yx0ljs.png

 

The Penance Queen

 

The Penance Queen is the final battle. She is very hard to defeat, and comes on wave 10. She uses magic-based attacks and can hit up to 15. It is strongly recommended to have 2 healers with a high healer level. She appears a few minutes after you start the tenth wave. When she appears, a few rocks fall on the horn of glory, and it becomes useless as you can't access it. To defeat the queen, you must use the egg shooter and shoot 'Omega Eggs'. These eggs hit around 30-45 damage each, but are very hard to make.

 

penancequeenbo5.gif

 

This is how you make an omega egg:

 

35k910j.gifThe collector picks up a yellow egg, that spawns when the queen appears. Then they use it on a healer.

2hyz3fm.gifThe healer takes the egg, and uses it on one of the poison pools, scattered around the edges of the arena. Then they use it on the attacker.

48dbame.gifThe attacker takes the egg and adds spikes to it. Spikes are found from the mushrooms around the edges of the arena, near the poison pools. Next, you use it on the defender.

48ydnd0.gifNow, the defender takes the egg, and uses it on the lava pools, and then it's an omega egg. The defender must pass it to the collector.

The collector takes the egg, and uses it on the egg shooter. Now anyone can shoot the omega eggs at the queen, hitting 30+ until she is dead.

 

Tips for defeating the queen:

  • Make sure auto retaliate is off when the queen arrives at queen stage.
  • When the queen arrives tend to stay near the pool so the the healers dont have to move far.
  • Your team should have two healers or at least one level 5.
  • When handed your egg ( in process to omega ) make sure you have full health before you run away from the pool to add onto it.
  • If your low on health go to the pool and stay still! it is extremely hard on the healer to click on you if your moving.
  • All the other Penance monsters must be killed before you are able to shoot an omega egg at the Penance Queen.
  • When the queen comes don't bother giving orders with the horn any more unless told to do so. It's rather pointless as the queen is now your main priority and the other monsters are the only that require orders.

a quick note for SEERS VILLAGE is NOT the closest bank, for the obstacle shortcut to GNOME STRONGHOLD is the fastest

 

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO SEERS VILLAGE BECAUSE THAT TAKES TOO LONG

 

anyways, the shortcut is north-east of the gnome stronghold, and it's a 5minute journey.

 

i hope this helps :glasses:

 

also barbariens let you use the capes, it's just that your icon is replacement for it, so please clariy it to prevent confusion "WHY" :ice:

 

also there is a huge thing to this game, some rules:

 

1) make sure you have no lagg...

2) make sure you wear full rune or better, do not use range or mage armor because it will take the most damage and even at 99 range/mage you still hit very low compared to maleer

3) make sure you wear full rune or better or the healer will heal you most of the time making your other teamates die while waiting for him

4) bring your patience and don't play if you got under 30 minutes...

5) be sure to watch the recording tutorial OR ELSE.

 

RULE 1:

 

use the horn to shout what the mouth icon tells you

do what the ear icon tells you(although many noobs tend to lie)

 

one important pointer:

 

THIS IS NOT A FASHION CONTEST/SHOW OFF ARENA/OR NOOB STADIUM which means:

 

do not bring santa hats, and your worst armor(you won't lose ur armor!)

do not bring full mimes/other junk

bring the best you have(for malee, don't bring other, unless you can fire blast/ or ur range is very good)

do not come if you are under level 70, you will make your team lose

 

 

what to bring(i know i said this already)

NO RUNES(supplied, you can re-deposite but it's a useless trip)

NO ARROWS

NO FOOD

NO POTIONS

BEST ARMOR(for your skill of preferance, i reccomend all just for fun)

 

one last pointer...

the monsters in this area only malee and range, this means mages and rangers will be hit hard, and rangers will not conduct any magic, thus being hit 0-13(max is queen)

 

-hope this helps :ice: -

You may want to add the with the games necklace used to teleport there, you can also teleport to the games room and use the rogues den bank, then teleport back to the minigame.

It's very handy for banking. :glasses:

Nice guide so far.

The Healer Role

By choosing to be a collector, you will have a green circle around your feet, shown below.

35aqjyu.png

 

Your job is to cure damage that may have been inflicted by the monsters and poison the Penance healers. To cure other players, you must take a vial from the machine (explained later in the guide), and fill it up with the water from the special healing spring, shown below. Note that you can only have one vial at a time.

4dqlq1t.png

 

It should be healer instead of collector. :ice:

 

Looks nice so far, maybe some strategies?

 

It's also a game of wits when someone doesn't tell you what to use/do lol... You might get pissed off when that happens. Just a hint :glasses:

Nice guide. It's very well laid out and I like the way you have used lots of images to make things easier to understand :glasses:.

Why are 2/more people making a guide on this :pirate2:
Its called guide competition. Guide writers are competing with others to write the better guide so it goes on the site. It’s not an unusual thing. It won’t madder which guide is finished first, as it will all depend on who wrote the better guide.

 

Anyway, this is a very nice guide and I like the format. I like the boarders around the pictures and the way you have everything set up. Good luck with your guide.

Talk to Captain Cain.He'll

 

When begining a new sentance you need a space from the full stop

 

The rooms have a number in the floor, that stands for what wave it is

 

Comma not needed

 

The collector picks up the eggs, that are dropped by the Penance monsters. They can only hold so many eggs at a time,

 

Another unneeded comma

 

If they manage to get to the south side of the arena, your team loses many 'honour points'

 

Spelled honor

 

To get your rewards for playing the game, talk to Commander Connad and select 'get-rewards'. Here will be a list of the things that you can achieve with your 'honour points'. Honour Points are rewarded at the end of each wave. The more effort you and your team puts into the game, the more honour points you and your team will recieve.

 

Spelled honor

 

Spelled receive - I before the E exept after C

 

You can trade in your honour points for levels in your role to recieve extra abilities.

Actually, a dueling ring/games necklace combination would be far faster, it would get you to the bank chest and back in about 10 seconds ^_^

 

I will also do a proofread for you in the morning, been on this all day now, so not going to be very good at it at the moment ^_^

If you're wearing a cape, then put it in the bank deposit box, because the barbarians won't let you wear it during the game. You should also note that if you are going to be a mage during the game, you cannot use runes that have been runecrafted. Additionally, food cannot be brought into the game.

 

That should be:

I think you might want to add that you if you want to save money DO NOT BRING BARROWS because lots of monsters can attack you, meaning it will degrade.

Ambo, if all the guides on the site are written with American Spellings and so on, it shows that they are wanting people to do things in certain way. Imagine you have written a fabulous guide, but it isnt accepted because of the way you spelt colour/color. You would feel annoyed. That is the reason Sal uses both American and European spellings. It shows the site is multi-cultural and is visited by people all over the world.

 

Back on topic- Nice guide, very detailed, hopefully it would help the people I met there screaming at me "WHAT DO I DO!!1"
