The barbarian rod is a heavier version of the fishing rod used during the Fishing portion of Barbarian Training. When you start that portion of the training Otto Godblessed will let you take this fishing rod from underneath the bed in his cabin; if you lose or drop it, get another from the bed. It uses fishing bait, feathers, fish offcuts, roe, or caviar as bait. It is the only fishing rod capable of catching leaping trout, leaping salmon and leaping sturgeon. It can only be used in the fishing spots at Otto's Grotto, and Mount Quidamortem in the Kebos Lowlands. Since barbarian fishing gives marginal Strength and Agility experience with each catch, it is more efficient than other training methods such as fly fishing.

The equippable version of the barbarian rod, the pearl barbarian rod, can be bought with molch pearls from Alry the Angler.

For Twisted League players, it's helpful to know that the Barbarian rod is available for purchase from the Fish monger in The Warrens for 98 GP. (Must have started The Queen of Thieves).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although different in appearance in the inventory, the barbarian rod is no different in appearance to any other fishing rod in the fishing animation.
  • On 1 June 2017, the drop option was replaced by destroy due to players commonly dropping it by accident along with the fish.
