{{#NewWindowLink:2007:Barrel (Viyeldi caves)|Old School RuneScape icon}}

Barrels are found in the Viyeldi caves during or after the Legends' Quest. Smashing them will reveal a random item, a death wing, or both.

Getting ThereEdit

To reach the area containing the barrels, one must have started the Legends' Quest and passed through the third Ancient Gate in the dungeon (for explicit directions, please refer to the Legends' Quest page).

Smashing the barrelsEdit

The success of opening the barrel is dependent upon Attack levels. By selecting the 'smash' option on a barrel, one (or more, in some cases) of the following can occur:

  • A death wing could appear
  • Random item(s) could appear on the ground
  • The player could be unable to smash the barrel
  • The barrel could explode, resulting in a random amount of damage between 60 and 120
  • The player's attack level could be temporarily reduced by 1-3 levels

After a barrel is opened, it will respawn in a random location in the room.

  • If there is an item on the ground and a barrel spawns on the same tile, the item will appear on top of the barrel.
  • It is possible for a barrel to spawn on a tile occupied by a player, but it is not possible to walk onto a barrel otherwise.
  • Anomaly. If a barrel is smashed and only a rope appears, the chatbox will read "You smash the barrel open. There's nothing in the barrel."
  • Anomaly. Sometimes nothing will appear after a barrel is smashed, but the chatbox will only read "You smash the barrel open."
  • Each noted item from the barrel was dropped as a certificate in RuneScape Classic.
  • The barrels were called Strange Barrels in RuneScape Classic.
  • In Runescape Classic, a much wider range of monsters could appear after smashing the barrels.
