Shortcuts:

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
Energy mix Energy mix 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.

Other Skill Bonuses:

Having a high Agility level provides benefits when training Fishing, Thieving and Hunter which are explained below.

Multiple Catching (Fishing):

When Fishing for Tuna, Swordfish, or Sharks, there is a chance that you will catch two fish at a time if your Agility level is equal to or higher than the required Fishing level. This chance increases with your Agility level up to a level limit which is shown below:

Level Fish Begin Multiple Catching Limit (Highest chance)
35 Fishing Raw tuna Raw tuna 35 Agility 70 Agility
50 Fishing Raw swordfish Raw swordfish 50 Agility 80 Agility
76 Fishing Raw shark Raw shark 76 Agility 99 Agility

Multiple Pickpocketing (Thieving):

Agility allows you to occasionally steal double, triple and quadruple loot when Pickpocketing NPCs as long as you also have a high enough Thieving level:

  • Double Loot: To steal double loot your Thieving level must be at least 10 levels higher than the level required to pickpocket the NPC and your Agility level must be at least equal to the required Thieving level.
  • Triple Loot: To steal triple loot your Thieving level must be at least 20 levels higher than the level required to pickpocket the NPC and your Agility level must be at least 10 levels higher than the required Thieving level.
  • Quadruple Loot: To steal quadruple loot your Thieving level must be at least 30 levels higher than the level required to pickpocket the NPC and your Agility level must be at least 20 levels higher than the required Thieving level.

Barehanded Butterfly Catching (Hunter):

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
