Agility Courses:

Agility courses are the primary method of training Agility and are basically an obstacle course which you must complete repeatedly in order to gain experience. Initially there is a chance that certain obstacles in many of these courses can be failed, dealing damage to you and causing you to restart or skip part of the course, and for this reason it is recommended to bring food with you when training Agility in order to heal, preferably items that can be eaten in multiple bites such as Cakes, Pizza, or Summer pies (which also provide a +5 boost to Agility and will decrease the chance of failing an obstacle) so that you won't have to frequently restock. However, nearly every course has a level at which you will no longer fail any of its obstacles and these will be outlined below along with each course.

Gnome Stronghold

Agility level:
1 Agility.

Gnome Course

Location:
Inside Tree Gnome Stronghold; northwest of Ardougne.

Fastest Way to Arrive: If you have completed Tree Gnome Village, then you are able to use the spirit tress to teleport directly to the Stronghold.

Notes:
This course runs in a square (see the map below) so it is advised to to start at the beginning (log balance) and travel counter-clockwise. The obstacles on this course also cannot be failed.

Brimhaven Agility Arena

Agility level:
1 Agility, although 40 Agility is recommended to complete all the obstacles.

Location:
In the east of Brimhaven.

Fastest Way to Arrive:
Teleport to Musa Point using an Amulet of glory and walk.

Notes:
Speak to Cap'n Izzy No-Beared to gain admission, which will cost 200gp if you have not completed the Rocking Out quest.

The object of the activity is to tag the pillars located in the arena in order to get tickets. The arena is made of twenty-five platforms arranged in a 5x5 square, each with a single pillar except for one, which has the exit. Follow the flashing red arrow to find out which pillar you need to tag. Each time you tag an active pillar, you will gain a ticket, which can be used to purchase rewards later.

Between each pair of platforms is an obstacle which must be overcome. If you fail an obstacle, you will take damage. It is recommended to bring light or weight reducing equipment and lots of food, as failed obstacles will reduce your lifepoints by 20-60.

Werewolf and Skullball Courses:

Agility level:
25 Agility (for the Skullball course) and 60 Agility (for the Werewolf course).

Zip Line

Location:
In the swamps of Morytania.

Fastest Way to Arrive:
Travel to Canifis and follow the north-eastern path, past the Slayer Master. From there head south/south-east through the swamp until you reach an area with an Agility symbol. Talk to the Agility Trainer (you must be wearing a ring of charos) and go down the trapdoor.

Notes:
You must be wearing a ring of charos to enter the course. This course runs in a square (see the map below) so it is advised to to start at the beginning (log balance) and travel counter-clockwise. The obstacles on this course cannot be failed, except the zip wire. If you retrieve the stick and bring it back to the Agility Boss at the arena, you will receive bonus XP.

Course Map:

Skullball:

Skullball is an agility minigame. You must kick a skullball through each goal as fast as you can to complete the course. There are 10 goals plus one final goal that you must kick the ball through in order to receive agility experience. You will gain 750 XP if you can complete the course in 4 minutes or less, and will lose roughly 8 XP for every 3 seconds over 4 minutes.

You can perform 3 actions in skullball - tap, kick and shoot.

If the skullball goes through a goal then its total distance traveled will decrease by one space.

Action Spaces Moved
Tap 1
Kick 4
Shoot 10

Agility Pyramid

Agility level:
30 Agility

Agility Pyramid

Location:
In the Desert; head east from the Crocodile pond north of Sophanem, and run past the Wanderer's tent until you see the pyramid.

Fastest Way to Arrive:
Use the Jaleustrophos teleport of the Pharaoh's sceptre, or use the Camulet teleport and head south-east.

Notes:
Speak to Simon Templeton to begin the course.

The main goal of the course is to not only complete it, but to reach the top and obtain the artifact, which Simon will pay 1000gp for. Though you can attempt to pass any obstacle backwards, you will always fail in doing so while taking minimal damage. This can be an effective way to leave the pyramid if you run out of water or food.

It is necessary to bring Waterskins or choc-ices, desert robes (top and bottom), a shantay pass, some food, a bowl of water (if you have completed Spirits of the Elid), and an enchanted water tiara is useful.

Hefin Agility Course

Agility Level Required: 77

Location: Hefin Sector of Prifddinas (requires completion of Plague's End)

Hefin Agility Course

Course Experience:
The Hefin Agility Course differs to all other courses in that the experience for completing the 6 obstacles and full course increases every 5 levels from 77 to 97 and these values are as follows:

Agility Level Obstacle Experience Course Complete Bonus Total
77-81 264 (44 x6) 440 704
82-86 330 (55 x6) 550 880
87-91 396 (66 x6) 660 1056
92-96 444 (74 x6) 740 1184
97-99 498 (83 x6) 830 1328

Shortcuts:
After completing a lap, there is a chance that either one or two shortcuts can be accessed on the next lap and these are:

  • Window Shorcut: A window opens in the side of the Hefin mountain which can be accessed after completing the "Traverse the cliff" obstacle. Jumping into this window allows you to skip the "Scale cathedral" and "Vault roof" obstacles as it takes you directly to the cathedral roof.
  • Light creature: A Light creature appears on the roof of the cathedral and allows you to complete the course without using the "Slide down zip line" obstacle.

Velocity:
The Velocity system is unique to this course and will charge up as you complete obstacles. When the meter is full, you will automatically complete the next obstacle without having to click on it and the meter will reset. This can be toggled on or off at any time and it is recommended to do so if one of the shortcuts is accessible as Velocity may cause you to skip it.

Voice of Seren Effects:

While the Voice of Seren is active in the Hefin Sector of Prifddinas, the following effects apply to the Hefin Agility Course:

  • Experience for completing each obstacle and the full course is increased by 20%.
  • The Velocity meter will fill in one lap.
  • Increased chance of the two shortcuts being accessible.
  • A small amount of Prayer experience is awarded upon completion of a full lap.

Rewards:
After completing each lap of the course, there is a chance that the Light creature will reward you with one of the items listed in the table below:

Dorgesh-Kaan Agility Course

Agility level:
80 Agility

Location:
In Dorgesh-Kaan, after the completion of the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest.

Fastest Way to Arrive:
Use the fairy ring code 'AJQ'.

Notes:
Start by speaking to Turgall in the northeastern power station. He'll ask you to fetch an item for him from the old generator, you will choose between a heavy item and a delicate item. The heavy item can not be carried on the grapple route, and the delicate one is too fragile to squeeze through the tunnel.

Course Map:

Turgall will give you a spanner - make sure to have a space in your inventory for this, as well as a space for the part you're picking up. Make your way to the old generator, use the spanner on the console to retrieve a delicate item, or on the boiler to retrieve a heavy item.

You may use one path one way or both back and forth, as long as you have the correct part with you. For pure agility training however, most players take the tunnel path both ways.

When returning to Turgall he'll give you xp bonus according to which path(s) you took; 571 ranged xp each way for the grapple path, and 1216 agility each way for the tunnel path. In other words, if you used the tunnel path both ways, you get a 2432 agility bonus in addition to xp for the obstacles.

Fallen ladders, swing -and balance cables can be failed, as well as grappling pylons. If you fall while grappling, use the nearby ladder to climb back up, if you fall using the tunnel path, go to the ladder in the north part of the cave and climb back up.

The item you are carrying will break upon falling, destroy it right away and pick up another one from the old generator. If you leave the course carrying an item, including random events, the item will break as well.

Perks of Agility:

Shortcuts:

As you level up Agility you will gain the ability to use many shortcuts around Gielinor which allow you to access areas faster and easier as you'll be able to climb steep slopes, cross rivers, jump chasms, squeeze through tight spaces and traverse various obstacles.

Some of these shortcuts require the use of a Mith grapple and compatible crossbow in addition to a Strength and Ranged level and these will be listed in the table below. It's also worth noting that most of these grapple shortcuts have a nearby Hidey-hole which allow you to store a crossbow and grapple for future use of the shortcut.

Run Energy and Restoration:

Run energy

An important mechanic for getting around quickly is the ability to run. Doing so requires energy which will slowly drain the longer you run for and is indicated by the icon shown above on your minimap. A yellow border indicates that running is turned on, while a grey border indicates that it is turned off. To toggle this you simply need to click on the icon.

The higher your Agility level, the slower your energy will drain and therefore you'll be able to run for longer. However, once you reach 0%, you'll stop running and need to either wait for your energy to slowly restore on its own, right-click on the icon and choose the "Rest" option to restore both your Life points and Run energy much faster, or use one of the items listed below to instantly restore a percentage of your energy:

Item Effect
Papaya fruit Papaya fruit Restores 10% energy
Winter sq'irk juice Winter sq'irkjuice Restores 10% energy
White tree fruit White tree fruit Restores 16% energy
Spring sq'irk juice Spring sq'irkjuice Restores 20% energy
Purple sweets Purple sweets Restores 20% energy per sweet
Energy potion Energy potion Restores 20% energy per dose

Summer pie Summer pie Restores 20% energy; +5 to Agility
Autumn sq'irk juice Autumn sq'irkjuice Restores 30% energy
Summer sq'irk juice Summer sq'irkjuice Restores 40% energy
Super energy Super energy Restores 40% energy per dose
Super energy mix Super energy mix Restores 40% energy per dose
Explorer's ring Explorer's ring Restores 50% energy 1-3 times per day depending on the tier of the ring
Strange fruit Strange fruit Restores 60% energy
Gout tuber Gout tuber Restores 100% energy
Mint cake Mint cake Restores 100% energy
Tireless run scroll Tireless run scroll Restores a portion of your run energy based on your Agility level
Oo'glog's Salt-water spring Restores run energy and stops it from depleting for a short period of time

It should also be noted that the rate at which your energy drains is affected by the amount of weight you're carrying. To help reduce weight and run for longer, there are a number of items you can wear which can be found here.

Agility allows you to catch Butterflies without the need for a Butterfly net and Butterfly jar. Although this means that you can't keep the butterfly as it is immediately released, you are instead awarded with significantly more Hunter experience and a small amount of Agility experience:

Butterfly Hunter Level Required Agility Level Required Hunter Experience Agility Experience
Ruby harvest Ruby harvest 80 75 300 50
Sapphire glacialis Sappire glacialis 85 80 400 70
Snowy knight Snowy knight 90 85 500 100
Black warlock Black warlock 95 90 650 125

Miscellaneous:

Penance Horn

The penance horn can be obtained for free by speaking to Commander Connad at Barbarian Assault. The item gives double experience to Agility, Mining and Firemaking (burning logs). When receiving double experience from a skill task, the Penance Horn will lose some of its charge. The horn can be recharged by completing all ten waves of Barbarian Assault several times.

The XP reward can be spent by completing agility courses, excluding the Werewolf Skullball, Agility Pyramid and the Penguin agility courses. When doing the Dorgesh-Kaan agility course, the horn only affects the experience gained from the obstacles, not the bonus from Turgall. Around 1,400,000 experience will be gained from a full horn at level 99.

Whilst equipped each charge gives Agility experience equal to 10% of the XP rewarded from a small XP lamp. They require a minimum of 1 Defence to wear, and can have their stats changed in increments of 10 up to level 60.
