Barbarians are battle-hardened warriors,
always ready for some pillage and raping.
Barbarians are good offtanks who add
damage they make by keeping enemy stunned
with battlecry and lure. They use axes and
bludgeons, not anymore polearms.
Their defensive capabilities are somewhat limited
since they trust that offense is the best defense :)
Barbarians value reputation that they get from
burning and looting corpses that they kill.

Info about most important barbarian skills (reinc guide)
Attack (100): Basic skill. Max this quickly, without this you don't hit enemy too often :)
Axes (85) Cleave (100): Attack skill for axes. max these soon.
Reaving (100): Mastery for axes, I have rarely bothered to train this more than 50-60
Bludgeons (100) Pound (100) Pulverize (100): Same skills for bludgeons
Negate offhand penalty (80): Lessens penalties when using weapon in offhand, better train well
Throw weight (100): Helps you to put weight behind strike, train this high especially if you have big race
Stun (100): Works quite rarely, needs to be highly trained to be of any assistance, not for newbies
Riposte (80): If you manage to parry enemy's attack you can continue with riposte attack (5-8 hp dam)
Tumbling attack (90): When your enemy dodges your attack you can still hit him with successful tumbling attack, quite important
Find Weakness (100): Makes you crit more often
Enhance criticals (100): Makes your crits become better, big difference between 80% and 100% ecrit
Brawling (100), Kick (100): Sometimes it's useful to have some skills that you can use while fighting nude
Torch creation (80): Good to have even you would have infra, you never know when you need torch for burning corpses
Fire building (40), Camping (50): Damn low trainability in barbarian guild but max these fast, helps your regen
Switch weapon (100): You can change weapon during combat. Not very important
Discipline (100): Enemy won't break your skills too often if you have this trained. Train at least to 50
First aid (80), Rescue (50): Nice to have trained, helps you to keep party members alive
Alertness (100): Helps you to avoid ambushes, nice to have some
Swim (100): Keeps you alive while crossing a sea, train at least to 50
Hiking (65), Endurance (100): These help you to save some ep when moving / fighting
Grapple (100): You can keep enemy from running, quite slow skill though. Not very important
Barbarian skills: These are what makes difference between barbarian and other tank guilds.
Battlecry (100): Good for starting battle, will not aggro enemy when you start it. Makes dam and stuns enemy for 0-5 rounds.
Reputation affects this skill. You must have some barbaric ways trained for this to work well.
When I had 100 skill, 50k+ rep but no barbways trained I usually made only 0-1 round stuns, max 2 rounds.
Maxed barbways added some 3 rounds to that.
Lure (100): When in fight you can stun enemy with this for 0-5 rounds. Nice combo to use first battlecry and then lure.
Enrage (100): Adds some str and dex to all barbarians in party. Reputation affects this. Max stat bonus with this is some +30 both, str and dex
Frenzy (100): Lowers your parry to 0 and raises bit dam that you make. Also aggroes all monsters and players in the room,
except those who are at the room when you start skill. Good if killing small non-aggro monsters, like in Critter hunt event
Looting and burning (100): Essential skill in barbarians, not getting much rep without burning corpses
Barbaric ways (100): Mastery for barbarian skills. You can train this only as much as your reputation allows,
approximatily 2% per every 1k rep. Affects at least battlecry, lure, enrage, cleave and pound
Cold tolerance (100), Fire walking (100), Toxic immunity (100), Pain threshold (100): Skills for cold, fire, poison and phys resistances.
Not used very often, but might give the edge you need when killing monsters near your limits. Resistances last longer when skill percentage is high.
Dodge (80), Parry (65): Essential def skills.
Combat sense (50): Raises your protection and prevents your armour getting wasted. Essential
Stunned maneuvers (40): Lessens time that you will stay stunned.
Doing these quests gives +dam and +hit bonuses to your barbarian necklace. "ask shaman about awards"
These also have some reputation requirements. All except Defeat Oogga clears at reinc.
Quest rep req difficulty info Prove Yourself 700 not very hard You need to solo lots (36?) of over 1k monsters in two hours time. Oogga tells you message every 25% intervals. Way of the Warrior 1500 challenging You need to find skull of Groo's father from maze and then portal to find way out. You can solo it but you can also party with couple other barbarians, though then you all need to find your own skulls
(you can't pick up wrong skull).
Help Madison 2000 not very hard Begin quest at Thakran, find minotaur and help him to revenge Raiding Cevi Village 3600 not very hard sw of Sunderland. Go there, kill men, loot houses, and capture woman until you get quest. Stay Alive 5000 challenging You need to survive one hour in a place with lots of aggro trolls (10-50k). From there you find potions that help you. Can be made solo or in barbarian party. Defeat Oogga 30000 very hard You can kill oogga only once. He throws out people that are not barbarians, not have enough reputation or already have quest when they try to attack him. When you have this quest you can burn corpses without torch.
Both barbarian events are placed on arena some 20 ne of barbarian guild and are held every 8. day.
"Barbarian event <event>" command gives you more info about times and rules.
Critter Hunt: You need to kill many small critters as fast as you can. The barbarian that kills most wins event.
You get some rep from every kill so even small barbarians are welcome. No reputation or level-limits.
Other barbarians are bigger threat to your safety than critters since barbarians actually crit sometimes :P.
Hint: You better train frenzy. Log about testing of critter hunt: Crittertest.rtf (176 KB)
Blood Bowl: Last man standing wins the bowl. You must come nude. You will get battle-axe and mace when you join event.
Prots are cancelled whn you join so don't bother boosting yourself.
If you get killed you'll get free pray. You get reputation from fighting even if you don't kill anyone, and every kill gives you nice rep.
Winner gets quest and some 200+ rep depending how many barbarians he has killed
(I guess best so far is 882 rep that I got from eight kills).

Barbarians gain reputation mainly by looting and burning corpses, training skills and barbarian events / arena gives reputation also.
When one barbarian in party burns corpse, all barbarians in the party gets same reputation. You see messages based on how much rep you got from corpse:
You feel nasty (1-3), You feel wicked (3-4), You feel bad (4-8), You feel barbaric (7-8), Now you ARE wicked (7-14),
Now you ARE bad! (15-20), Now you ARE barbaric (15-29), You wallow in reputation (25-34), You feel Groo smiling upon you (46-102).
"barbarian binfo <name>" shows you how much other barbarians have reputation.

1. (Dogi) was first one to reach enough reputation for eldership. Was 500M highbie like Steelheart.
Those two dominated barbarian events for some time.
2. Steelheart got eldership right after Dogi. They had nice fight about leadership which sometimes changed daily. Dogi and Steelheart rebirthed after they got eldership, and lost it later when Runeaxe decided to clear rep at rebirth. He regained his lost eldership couple years later. 3. (Pogowoko) is first one that has got "Chosen One" title (150k) and later God Slayer (200k). Reinced away from barbarians, spent 291M exp on unique ring and came back to guild to make exp again. Then rebirthed as Aegis and lost eldership. 4. Tonto got eldership 7.2002. Rebirthed and made quickly to lv 100 and barbarian eldership.

Who is Groo?
Groo is dumb but deadly barbarian whose humorous adventures we can read from Groo the Wanderer comics.
He roams around and brings death and destruction to those around him. He can singlehandedly charge against army.
Since 1981 over 140 Groo comics has been published
(and I have over 100 of those :)
Some Groo links:
Barbarian guild used to be at digga's before Runeaxe took leads and moved guild to place where it's now. Our joining place is still in the old guild.
Oogga used to have axe instead of mace that he has now. And he was normal 1M equmonsie back then.
Autumn 2000. Runeaxe began coding barbarians. He removed aggression skill and made frenzy. Shinarae coded looting and burning skill.
Reputation was installed 16th of november 2000. Level requirements were removed and changed to rep requirements.
Also two quests were installed soon after that: Help Madison and Stay Alive. Reputation scales were tweaked to be bigger when it had been in a game only week.
Jan 17 2001. Fizzl installed Cevi village quest
March 2001. Rep was changed so that it gives same rep for all barbarians in party.
No more need to compete who is fastest burner. May 16 2001 rep scale and titles were changed again.
Aug 22 2001. Barbarian arena "defeat xx" quests were removed (except defeat Oogga which isn't at arena) and changed to +rep once/boot.
Feb 04 2002. Barbaric ways skill was linked to rep (you need now 50k rep to be able to train 100 bways)
