Barbarian Training is a miniquest in which players learn how to train their skills as the Barbarians once did during ancient times. Barbarians train their Fishing, Firemaking, Herblore and Smithing skills far differently from the rest of the RuneScape world. To some, these methods may seem unorthodox — perhaps even a bit extreme — but the advantages are worth it!

Here's a dungeon map of the lower level of the Ancient Cavern if you need to navigate through the dungeon:
The Mithril Dragons are located throughout the upper level of the Ancient Cavern. There are also barbarians, waterfiends and brutal green dragons in the dungeon but those won't give you too much trouble. Best stay away from the water though!
Kill Mithril Dragons (Level 112) until you receive some chewed bones.
Note: Do not use the mangled bones, or you'll be fighting a level 100+ angry spirit.
Kill the dragon right here, at the entrance. If you look in the background, there is a log you could use for a quick escape. After killing the dragon, ride the log and you will end up downstream of the waterfall. Go north, back to the waterfall, and go to this spot:
You will put the spirit to rest and it will leave behind a reward.
Go back to Otto to complete your mini-quest!
