Rewrote parts of the 'equipment' section. - N
The article states that barbarian start with only one food ration, although I started a game with 2 food rations and a carrot
I also think there is some mistake. I got 3 food rations instead of 1. I am using nethack version 3.4.

Accidentally added to the old wiki instead of here - I started with 2 food rations and a tin of fox meat. Not sure why; I've never had this happen before.

- Fixed. In your case, the guaranteed food ration turned out to be a stack of two, and the random food-class object a tin of fox meat. --Tjr 00:43, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Changed a portion of the skills section which suggested a silver spear at skilled did equivalent damage to a silver saber at basic. The statement was in direct reference to selecting a second weapon for #twoweaponing and therefore incorrect since Barbarian #twoweaponing is capped at Basic.
Cleaver is guaranteed?
- Cleaver was already randomly generated somewhere in your game. I'd say the most likely cause is a bones level. -- Qazmlpok 21:17, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Boxes and chests
- No, it's independent of character class. But you might notice more, since your character could depend more on container loot. --Tjr 00:44, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
If you kill them on a different level, "But you'll eventually have to deal with them on the return trip."
u_init.c suggests that this is a myth, and possibly the article is based on someone playing an orcish barbarian, who starts with one random food item (in addition to the food rations) due to being an orc? --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 09:32, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
