Starting Point:
Any of the following Agility courses: Gnome Stronghold (Normal and Advanced), Barbarian Outpost (Normal and Advanced), Agility Pyramid, Werewolf, Wilderness, and Dorgesh-Kaan.
To Start:
Talk to the Talent scout after he calls out to you.
Getting Started:

After completing a lap of the above Agility courses, there is a chance that you will be noticed by the Talent scout. When noticed, he will call out to you in the chat box and a green arrow will appear over his head. When you talk to him, he will knock you out and you will wake up in The Pit shortly after. Here you will be greeted by Scrambles and Snotgut who will explain what The Pit is and the event you must complete.

Note: You can only be noticed by the Talent scout once an hour. If you have an Agility cape, you can access The Pit at any time by talking to a scout, however you will not receive the full experience reward.

Events:

Floor is lava!

The aim of this event is to make your way from one side of the 'lava' to the other by jumping on the crates. However, some of the crates are unstable and may break when you jump onto them, causing you to fall and fail the event.

Floor is Lava

High-low There!

The aim of this event is to correctly guess if the next number is going to be higher or lower than the last by pressing either the red + button or green - button. If you take too long to pick higher or lower, it will be chosen for you. If you are successful 6 times in a row, you will pass the event.

Karaoke!

The aim of this event is to avoid the falling rocks caused by Snotgut's singing. This is done simply by running around and trying to avoid the smaller falling rocks that appear briefly before the larger rocks. After around 40 seconds, the singing will end and you will pass the event.

Put the Thing in the Other Thing!

The aim of this event is to correctly place three shapes in their appropriate slots before time runs out. You only have a short time to complete the event, but it is perhaps the easiest in The Pit as chance does not play a part, you just have to be fast enough.

Put the Thing in the Other Thing!

Punch the Hungry Sheeps!

The aim of this event is to punch sheep until you find the one carrying the key. There are 14 sheep in total, but you only have five chances to find the correct one. If you don't find the key, you will fail the event and the Talent scout will appear and knock you out.

Crate Expectations!

The aim of this event is to search the crates until you find the one containing a key. There are 16 crates, but you only have five changes to find the correct one. If you don't find the key, you will fail the event and the Talent scout will appear and knock you out.
