Melee damage dealer who channels rage to strengthen their attacks

Barbarians are nomadic warriors who journey across the vast lands of the world, often making their livings as mercenaries. Devoting their lives to the improvement of their bodies, Barbarians strive to reach a state of physical perfection. They tend to be the most powerful class of fighters, relying upon brute strength to crush their opponents. Years of endurance training give Barbarians the ability to heal their wounds very quickly, although they are also experts at defensive techniques.

The blade dragged its sharp edge through Bonedrinker's armor as a well armored knight of Rune swung his sword downward. Lord Agrippa's knights were not to be taken lightly. Due to Sir Michael's instruction, the knights of Rune have kept the peace in Rune very easily for generations. For the past twenty minutes, this particular knight was trying to subdue a rowdy adventurer. A large ogre named Bonedrinker, known for his uncouth behavior and limited intellect, was once again in trouble. Both warriors charged and clashed their metals outside The Moonmist Tavern.

"Foul Ogre, thou shalt pay for disrespecting these local laws!" a knight yelled.

Bonedrinker brought his axe down swiftly, its heavy edge glancing off the knight's armor.

"Thou art a strong foe, but you are getting tired, and my armor is protecting me from your assault." a knight said.

"Stop talk." Bonedrinker grunted. "Now die!"

Bonedrinker's face contorted with rage as he lashed out at a knight of Rune. The knight gasped as the large ogre's attack split his armor, lodging the axe blade deeply into his torso. The knight collapsed to the ground, defeated.

Bonedrinker dislodged his axe with a tug. "No one tell Bonedrinker where he not pee."

Barbarians are masters of all forms of armed and unarmed combat. Once experienced, they are able to attack much faster than their enemies, and tend to do more damage with each blow. Because axes can cleave through opponents with the greatest force, they are the preferred weapons of most Barbarians. Other bladed weapons are also popular, including daggers, swords, spears, and halberds. While Barbarians believe that it is somewhat cowardly to use axes and spears as throwing weapons, they are still trained to fight with them in this manner.

Various tribes of Barbarians can be found in different parts of the world. While they seldom battle against each other, two tribes sometimes end up fighting as hired mercenaries on opposites sides of a war. Young Barbarians wishing to test their abilities often travel to Tellerium, a city located on the continent of Avros. Because its residents distrust the use of magic, Tellerium is the perfect place to hone combat skill.
