A team of 5 players must work together in order to defeat 10 waves of Penance monsters and, finally, their leader, the Penance Queen. Teamwork and coordination are vital in order to achieve success at this minigame. The barbarians at the Barbarian Outpost need your help to fight back the seemingly endless waves of Penance monsters. Captain Cain will brief you and your fellow adventurers on your tasks when you arrive.
Music in RuneScape is mostly in-game background music (music tracks) designed to enhance a player’s gaming experience and fit with the environment the avatar is in. Music in RuneScape draws inspiration from progressive rock, with elements of classical and world music.
The 500th Track was Tournament! (now unlocked automatically) which was released on 20 November 2007. Unlocking 500 tracks will also unlock the Air Guitar emote. It is notable for being one of the few emotes with audio.
Barbarian Assault is a cooperative, team-based safe combat minigame located at the Barbarian Outpost. It was released on 4 January 2007, to members only.
Without completing his tutorial, you will not be able to play. After gathering a party of five teammates, you will be allowed to head straight into the battle. After fighting back enough waves of Penance, you’ll have enough Honour points to buy a variety of combat-based and cosmetic rewards.
Players need to unlock most tracks during game-play by going to a particular place, completing a quest, or performing some action (such as reading a particular book). As of 11 December 2012, there are 917 music tracks available via music player. As RuneScape ages, many more music tracks may be distributed.
