Attempting to talk to one yields a message saying either "ug", "grr", "the barbarian grunts", "the barbarian ignores you" or something else. Sometimes you will have a small conversation with them, after saying "Hello", the barbarian asks "Who are you?. You then say "I'm a bold adventurer" and the barbarian responds "You don't look very strong".
In RuneScape 2, Barbarians use their axe as a two-handed weapon. However, in RuneScape Classic, the barbarians use their axe as a one-handed weapon. Also, in RuneScape 2, Barbarians appear to wear a Bronze Medium Helmet. In RuneScape Classic, they appear to wear a Steel Medium Helmet.
There are also some barbarians that will sell you items and are non-aggressive (such as Peksa, who owns a helmet shop).
Barbarians are good to train on and there is meat and beer located at the village, so you can get a food source there. Many people get normal barbarians and Gunthor the Brave mixed up and accidently click on him. If you aren't of a decent level and you accidently click him, retreat as soon as possible.
