Agility Training Tips
Welcome to my brand-new, updated Agility guide for 2019! This guide will show you the best ways to level Agility, the fastest ways to gain experience, and the cheapest methods to train to achieve 99 Agility as quickly as possible.
Agility is a pretty useful skill when it comes to RuneScape—it provides a lot of shortcuts through the world, especially in Slayer dungeons.
The guides here do not incorporate the use of any experience-boosting items or bonus experience used. However I will list all the items that will help you speed up training times and give a more effective way of leveling up in Agility.
There are a few items in the game that can help speed up your training time by giving bonus experience or reducing the rate at which you fail obstacles.
When traversing obstacles you are less likely to fail if you have a lower weight. The difference is quite small but does make a large difference in the long run as it can shave hours off training time.
The nimble outfit is an outfit won from treasure hunter which provides an experience boost to training, there are 5 pieces which each give a 1% experience boost with an extra 1% if all 5 pieces are worn.
The surefooted auras prevent the player from failing all obstacles for 20 or 40 minutes, which can be extended by 50% or 100% by paying for vis wax. They cost 5,000 or 12,000 Loyalty Points and are well worth the cost in the long run.
Summer pies give a temporary 5 level boost to a players Agility level. This allows the player to access obstacles they usually could not and reduces the chance of failing obstacles further.
Most Efficient Ways to Level Up Agility
This section of the guide will show you the quickest way to level up your Agility level. I'll jump right in.
Here you should train at the Gnome Stronghold Agility Course found beside the Grand Tree. This will give you 6,800 experience per hour at these levels, meaning you should reach level 18 after around 31 minutes.
Here you should train at the Watchtower shortcut, found in the northeast corner of Yanille on the outside of the town. Use the shortcut to climb the trellis on the north wall then climb down the stairs and repeat. You can gain 10,000 experience per hour using this method as it is not possible to fail.
Now you should switch to training on Clockwork suits. To do this you will need partial completion of the Cold War quest, up to the point where you learn how to make Clockwork suits. Use the "wind" option on a clockwork suit and add both wound and unwound Clockwork suits on your action bar. Use keybinds to wind and release the Clockwork suits and at the same time click on the released Clockwork suit in order to pick them up.
This method is best if you remain in a small confined area so the Clockwork suits don't go astray. A good place to do this is the top of the White Knights' Castle in Falador.
Option 2: If you cannot complete the Cold War quest, then you should train at the Barbarian Outpost Agility course, which requires completion of the Bar Crawl miniquest, or else continue at the watchtower until 52 if you cannot complete this miniquest.
Now the rest of your time should be spent at the Wilderness Agility Course. Beware of PKers here as the course is a common spot for getting kills. You should use a Demonic Skull to improve experience rates. It gives an extra 4% Agility experience per Agility level above 50, meaning double experience at level 75 and just under triple at 99.
Option 2: If you don't want to do this you can train at the Ape Atoll Agility course from 75 which becomes unfailable at this level but has quite high requirements.
Option 3: Another option if you have completed the Plague's End quest is the Hefin Agility course, usable after level 77. It is unfailable always and gives very good experience rewards. Positioning your camera angle it is possible to complete full laps without ever moving your mouse and just clicking occasionally.
Alternative Ways to Level up Agility
There are a few other methods of leveling Agility—firstly, completing quests. Completing all quests gives 770,212 Agility experience, and up to 4,000,000 (yes 4 million) experience as optional quest rewards.
Using Silverhawk Boots
Another useful item is Silverhawk Boots. These can be obtained from Treasure Hunter or purchased for 750 thaler. It will occasionally give Agility experience equal to 10% of what would usually be gained from a small lamp. It gives experience:
- Once per minute whilst running
- While skilling (roughly every 45 seconds)
- While using an ultimate ability
They are charged using Silverhawk feathers, which can be purchased for around 20,000 gp. Generally this is a very cost inefficient way of training Agility but if you have loads of money then this can easily train Agility as a passive skill.
Participating in the Pit
There is also a Distraction & Diversion called The Pit. This is an hourly (roughly) event in which the player is invited to complete a short challenge in order to gain an experience reward. It is worth doing these as the experience reward is quite substantial. The player is invited by the Talent Scout who is present around most Agility courses. He will gesture the player over when invited.
Using Serenity Posts
Serenity Posts in the Hefin district of Prifddinas provide fully AFK experience for 20,000 experience per day, before becoming unable to use. You need 75 Agility to use this.
Participating in the Big Top Bonanza
You can also participate in Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza once per week to give a maximum of 13,750 experience, with 99 Agility.
Thank you for reading my 1–99 Agility guide. I hope these methods help you reach 99 as quickly as possible. Feel free to ask any questions below! Why not check out one of my other guides if you are going for max!
