After talking to Otto Godblessed he will tell you that he can teach you advanced firemaking, fishing rod, and spearing techniques, but first you will need to learn the basic skills. Choose one of the options that you are given:
Please, supply me with details of your cunning with harpoons. (Requires Level 55 Fishing and 35 Strength)
Are there any ways to use a fishing rod which I might learn? (Requires Level 48 Fishing, and 15 Strength and Agility)
My mind is ready for your Firemaking wisdom, please instruct me. (Requires 21 Firemaking)
Once you make a decision, you will receive a book from Otto, Barbarian Skills, it contains information on tasks he has set to you and how you are to train this skill.
Otto has explained to you how to catch fish without a harpoon, for a review check the Barbarian Skills book he has provided you with. You will need to go to a harpoon fishing spot (nearest is Fishing guild if you have access). When you arrive at one, stuff your arm into the water (choose to harpoon, without a harpoon in inventory) and after you successfully catch one you will be more trained in the Barbarian ways. Proceed back to Otto and talk with him to learn more of the Barbarian skill training ways.
You should now know from Otto that Barbarians do not use the small fishing rods that we normally use, but instead larger Barbarian Rods. They also only fish at the lake. Proceed to his bed and search it to receive one of these Barbarian Rods. Now if you have brought some fishing bait proceed to a fishing spot and cast out, else go and get some fishing bait than come back and cast your rod out at the lake. Once you have caught one fish, a leaping trout, proceed back to Otto so you can further your training of the Barbarian ways.
Otto will explain to you the Barbarian way of lighting a fire. He will tell you to cut a certain log, the log that you will need should be somewhere around the lake. When you have your log and any kind of bow (MUST be uneqipped), use them on each other and a fire will be started. Proceed back to Otto so you are able to further training.
As you finish your Basic Training skills, a new option will arise for you. They are:
Tell me more about the use of spears. (Level 5 Smithing, Tai Bwo Wannai Trio Completed)
What was the secret knowledge of Herblore we talked of? (Level 4 Herblore)
You have two options here, as with the previous section you can click either of these and they will take you to the part of the guide which explains how to complete them.
To further your spear training you will need to create your own spear. To do this you will need one bar of any metal that you can smith and the respective log to go with it, see below to find which log you need and smithing level required.
Once you have the metal and log that is needed with it, go back to the Barbarian anvil with a hammer so you can smith your spear (normal anvils are not strong enough for this). After you have created a spear talk with Otto and he will be ready to reveal the secret of one-handed spears! The one-handed spear will be covered later on in the guide.
Otto explains to you the Barbarians potions, which will both heal you, and still give some of the original effects of the potion. You will need to make him a lesser attack potion mix. To do this you will need a fish from the lake, and then gut it with your knife. Don't worry if you don't retrieve anything from the fish, just catch another one and try again, eventually you will get either caviar or roe. Both of these are suitable for the potion. Use whichever you have on the 2-dose attack potion to make an attack mix. Bring your potion back to Otto and he will be eternally grateful.
What of the one-handed spears of which you spoke?
I have completed Firemaking with a bow. What follows this?
These are made the same way as the spear, take a metal bar and the log that matches it, see below to find what log is needed.
Now that you have the correct items, use it on the anvil south of Otto's house and choose to make a Hasta. Once that is done, proceed back to Otto.
You will learn of an Ancient cavern below a whirlpool that many Barbarian Warriors have perished in. For your final task you need to retrieve one of their bones, and sacrifice them on a pyre location around the lake. You will first want to have armor, an Anti-dragonfire shield or Dragonfire shield, a strong weapon, and food. Gear that boosts your prayer is strongly recommended as you will want to pray on the monsters. Head to the north dock on the lake and click to enter the whirlpool. Your character will do a cannon ball into the whirlpool.
To obtain the Chewed bones, you will need to enter the Ancient cavern and kill the Mithril Dragons on the second level. The bones are not a common drop, so don't expect them right away. When you have finally gotten the bones, teleport out if you brought one, or find the floating log which you can hop on to leave the cavern.
You will now need to sacrifice the bones. To do this have a Knife, a Hatchet and any type of log, a Tinderbox, and of course chewed bones. Now go to any of the pyre sites around the lake and click Construct pyre site. It will automatically build a pyre and burn it for you. As a reward you will get an item, possibly even a Dragon full helm. Also depending on which type of log you used, you could get a 300% bonus on the next type of bone you bury, up to five times. If you build a funeral pyre with Mangled bones you will be attacked by a level 166 Ferocious barbarian spirit.
