1-99 and Beyond Agility Training

If you have the resources to do so, always have your silverhawk boots equipped while training your agility for the best experience rates.

Level 18-30 Watchtower Shortcut: The best way to reach level 30 is to repeatedly climb the watchtower shortcut. After using the shortcut simply climb down the stairs and repeat. This method will yield 10K experience per hour.

Level 30-38 Wilderness Easy Tasks: Since the experience rates with agility are really low, the best way to skip these 8 levels is by completing the easy wilderness tasks and using the two reward lamps on agility.

Levels 38-50 Northern Anachronia Agility Course: At level 30 you will be able to traverse two sections of the Anachronia agility course. The northern section will grant you around 28K experience per hour. Also there are some other mechanics that takes place in this agility course, those are:

Levels 50-52 Southern Anachronia Agility Course: After reaching level 50 you can move to the next section of the agility course. You must only repeat the new section for receiving the best experience per hour.

Levels 52-65 Wilderness Agility Course: As the name suggests this course is in the wilderness so you shouldn’t bring any items that you do not wish to lose. The damage you receive from the agility course scales depending on your current health, so keeping relatively low hit points is recommended. Also while training there, there is a chance of monsters spawning and attacking your character. These monsters are high level and can become very annoying. You will be receiving around 39K experience per hour. There are also additional ways of by which you can boost this course:

  • If you have wilderness sword 2 or higher equipped or in your inventory, you will receive 5% more experience.
  • If you have elite wilderness diaries completed, you will obtain wilderness sword 4, which has unlimited teleports to the agility course.
  • Having a demonic skull will give a scaling bonus to all agility experience while doing the course. With this skull you can expect to get around 50K-74K experience per hour at these levels. The wilderness swords bonus stacks with the demonic skull.

  • There is a chance for you to obtain a reward upon each completion as well. These can include small agility experience lamps or Hefin course multipliers.
  • The Voice of Seren also provides benefits for players training at the Hefin course. As well as receiving 20% additional experience in Agility, players will receive Prayer experience at a rate equivalent to 25% of the base Agility experience that they gain. The Voice of Seren also increases the player's chance of spawning shortcuts and doubles the rate at which velocity is gained while it is active.

Levels 80-99+ Advanced Anachronia Agility Course: This course has the best experience rates in the game.

Alternative Methods

Levels 30-40/52 Clockwork Suits: This is a very niche and unique way to train your agility. To be able to do this you will need to have the quest “Cold War” partially completed. Make at least 4 clockwork suits and go to a small confined area such as the eastern tower of the White Knight’s Castle. Put a wound and unwound version of the clockwork suit on your actionbar. After that spam click both, and at the same time click on the ground to pick up the clockwork suits that you release. Around 40K experience can be earned per hour doing this method.

Levels 48-52/77 Ape Atoll Agility Course: After the completion of the quest “Monkey Madness” players can access the monkey agility course. You can only do this course if you possess the ninja monkey greegree. You can gain around 30K experience per hour doing this course. If you have level 70 agility or above you will no longer fail this course and that increases the experience rates to 49K.

Levels 65-76 Wilderness Agility Course: This method only works if you have a demonic skull. The demonic skull gives an additional 4% experience for each Agility level the player has over 50 Agility.
