Agility is a members only skill in which you can improve the amount of time it takes to run out of energy, gain the ability to clear dangerous obstacles, access to secret areas, and the ability to use shortcuts throughout the land of RuneScape.

Free-to-play players can level Agility up to level 5 through the Burthorpe course.

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.

Gnome Stronghold

Agility level:
1 Agility.

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.

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.

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

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.
