Agility is an important skill offering several benefits to members, such as aiding other skills such as Herblore and Runecrafting Guide, and allowing players to recover their energy faster. This is certainly useful in situations such as the Wilderness. This guide will cover all aspects of Agility, starting off with beginning the skill.

Starting Agility

Agility experience is usually obtained by completing Agility Courses. There are a large variety of these in the RuneScape world, and they mostly follow the same format. Players attempt to bypass obstacles (which each give a small amount of experience) until they complete the course, when they receive a course bonus. This bonus usually gives far more experience than the obstacles of the course, so generally the best method of training is to do 'laps' of an Agility Course. Some course obstacles can be failed, often causing players to take damage or sometimes become poisoned. If a player fails an obstacle, he must re-attempt it until completing it successfully to receive the bonus at the end of the course.

Agility Courses

The table below will show you all the available Agility Courses, and link to a short guide on each one. Also listed are the agility level requirements only - however, there may be some other requirements to use the course; see the guide for more info.

Course Name
Level Required
Level 1 Agility
Level 30 Agility
Level 30 Agility
Level 35 Agility
Level 55 Agility
Level 48 Agility (70+ Recommended)
Level 60 Agility
70 Agility, Strength & Ranged



Brimhaven Agility Arena

The Agility Arena in Brimhaven, located just by the gate that seperates Karamja and Brimhaven, differs to the other Agility Courses, and can be useful to players of almost all Agility levels. There is no level requirement for this course, but at least Level 40 Agility is recommended, otherwise you will fail many of the obstacles. Once you pay Cap'n Izzy No Beard the 200 coins entrance fee, you go down a ladder into the arena, which is shown by the map below.



The object of the arena is to collect tickets, which appear at a random location every so often. The location will be indicated by an arrow on the screen, and players must get to the ticket dispensers by overcoming a series of obstacles. These obstacles give small amounts of experience, and most can be failed. Experience given by successfully bypassing these obstacles can be found below.

Tickets are gained by hitting the dispenser (with a flashing arrow over it) when players stand next to it. Tickets can be traded in for experience, as detailed by the table below.

2,480

You can also trade your tickets in for other items, such as the rare herbs Toadflax (3 tickets) and Snapdragon (10 tickets) for further use in Herblore. You can also purchase a Pirate's Hook for 800 tickets, but this is just a wearable novelty item.

Course Bonus: None.

Other Agility Options

Besides the courses, there are a few other ways you can raise your agility.

Yanille Agility Dungeon



This is not officially a course, but contains a series of obstacles which allow players access to various benefits. Note that failing most of the obstacles in the dungeon lands you into an area full of Poison Spiders, so it is a good idea to bring an antipoison potion.
