About the guild:
Barbarians, or simply 'Barbs' are the most offensive tank guild there is. They
are very good at dealing damage, but are less qualified in taking it than, for
example, Crimsons. And while they certainly hit harder than rangers, the rather
similar nomad-tank guild, they lack much in the field of camping, fire building
and other wilderness-related activities.
Barbarians have a wide variety of skills that help them in combat. There are
many basic offensive skills (push, bash, kick) available to them as well as the
terrific cleave and pound, both being very powerful attacks, cleave using axes
and pound using bludgeons. Their effect can be further increased by training
reaving or pulverize, respectively. Barbarians may also use the skill battlecry
to begin their battles with greater fury.
There are downsides to being a barbarian as well. While barbarians certainly can
hit hard and deal damage, soloing is way harder for them than, for example, it
is for rangers. Also, barbarians, due to their energy-consuming skills, run out
of endurance fast, and need to eat and drink way more than most. Barbarians can
counter these problems with skills like fishing, hunting and plant lore, which
makes it easier to find food, and endurance, which lowers the endurance costs of
Barbarians have a reputation system. Reputation can be boosted by training
barbaric and offensive skills, completing barbarian guild quests, winning
competitions, writing graffiti and, simply, hacking beasts twice your size into
bloody pulp and burning the remains. Barbarians with too low reputation cannot
advance or train their barbaric ways, nor will they be able to use some of their
barbaric skills effectively.
Where to find it:
The entrance to the barbarian camp is well hidden in Digga's domain, and
guarded. All who wish to join need to prove their friendly intentions by either
freeing the captured barbarian, Groo, from Raven's dungeon or coming with a
senior barbarian. However, the newest players who want to join don't have to
complete either of these - barbarians have always understood the potential power
of an eager newbie.
Barbarians can train their skills with a respected trainer on every continent,
but to advance in levels, they'll have to head to Rothikgen, where Oogga's camp is.
