Honour points can be used to improve the level of each role, redeemed for combat equipment, or gambled for a chance to receive the rare pet penance queen and dragon chainbody.

Earning Honour pointsEdit

There are four types of Honour points associated with each role: collector, healer, defender, and attacker. Players gain honour points at the end of each successful wave based on their role performance and the team's overall performance. With each successive wave, players earn more points as the difficulty increase. Upon killing the Penance Queen in the last wave, the player will receive 80 Honour points in their role and 5 points to the other 3 roles.

Points calculationEdit

Points for wave 1-9.

Role Aspect Formula Capped at
Defender Runners that got past -3x=y Y is capped at -10
Attacker Rangers killed 0.85x=y X is capped by spawns
Attacker Fighters killed 0.85x=y X is capped by spawns
Healer Healers killed 0.6x=y X is capped by spawns
Defender Runners killed 1.725x=y X is capped by spawns
Healer Players hitpoints replenished 0.056x-0.5=y Y is capped at 28
Healer Wrong poison packs used -0.25x+0.3=y X is capped at 512
Collector Eggs collected minus exploded 0.23x-0.5=y X is capped at 60
Attacker Incorrect style attacks -x+1=y Y is capped at -10
For completing wave 10, each player gets 80 points for their role plus 5 points in each of the other 3 roles.

Each team member gets points based on the team's performance plus points based on their own role. A player not TELLING (MOUTH icon) their partner what action to DO (EAR icon) may result in penalties for the entire team. However, as seen in the table above, the healer and the collector do not get heavily penalised when using wrong food / collecting wrong eggs, and thus, it is advised that they do guess their calls to save time waiting for the other player to call. This is not applicable to the attacker because they are heavily penalized ( around -1 point per wrong guess ). Contrary to popular belief, the defender does not get penalized when using wrong food. In fact, it is sometimes very useful to use wrong food in defending.

Barbarian Assault Rewards Shop

Players may spend these honour points by talking to Commander Connad, who can be found in the Barbarian Assault entrance hall, near Captain Cain. They can choose to:

  • Upgrade their Barbarian Assault skill levels
It costs 200 points in a particular skill to upgrade a level the first time, then 300, then 400, then 500.

Level UpgradeEdit

Players may upgrade the level in a particular role from Level 1 up to Level 5. By upgrading their levels, the player gains extra abilities such as extra damage, higher healing, etc. However, each upgrade requires spending a certain amount of Honour Points. A total of 1,400 Honour Points are needed to obtain a Level 5 role. 5,600 points are required to obtain Level 5 in all roles. Obtaining the maximum level in all roles is one of the requirements needed to complete the Elite Kandarin Diary.

Abilities gained by upgrading:

Fighter torso equipped

A player wearing the Fighter torso, one of the most sought after items from Barbarian Assault.

Players may also purchase Penance armour using their Honour points. Certain items require the player to kill the Penance Queen. If a player is only missing a few dozen points and will probably be able to earn them before their next Queen kill it is probably worthwhile to keep saving up. Of course this may mean leaving one's current team. Points from all roles are required.

Item Points in each Role Queen Kill required?
Fighter hat Fighter hat 275 Yes
Healer hat Healer hat 275 Yes
Runner hat Runner hat 275 Yes
Ranger hat Ranger hat 275 Yes
Fighter torso Fighter torso 375 Yes
Penance skirt Penance skirt 375 Yes
Runner boots Runner boots 100 No
Penance gloves Penance gloves 150 No
Granite body Granite body 95,000 coins Yes
  • The total amount in points for a Penance armour set (one of any penance hats, penance gloves, runner boots, fighter torso and Penance skirt) is 5100 points (All roles added together).


By gambling, players may obtain various items, including the extremely rare dragon chainbody and pet penance queen.

There are 3 methods of gambling, each with different costs:

  • Low: 200 Honour Points (Must be on Wave 3 or higher)
  • Medium: 400 Honour Points (Must be on Wave 6 or higher)
  • High: 500 Honour Points + Queen kill

The odds of getting a Dragon chainbody are exceedingly slim. The odds of obtaining it are, as quoted from Jagex, "About the same odds as Zamorak suddenly deciding to give up his evil ways.", which, according to RuneScape lore, is nearly zero. Mod Mat K confirmed that the actual rate was 1 in 16,000.
