Notes About Food

Obstacles will cause less damage to a player when their Life Points are lower. So, it's best to keep your Life Points under 200, so that each time you fail at an obstacle, you will only be hit for 20 damage. Therefore, the best types of food to bring along with you are foods that are eaten in multiple bites. Examples of such foods include CakesPineapple Pizza, Baskets of Strawberries.

Getting Started

The Brimhaven Agility Arena can be found in Brimhaven, a city on the west part of Karamja Island. Go inside of the building a short distance northwest of the entrance to Brimhaven, and then speak to Cap'n Izzy No Beard about the arena. Unless you have completed Rocking Out,  you will need to pay him 200gp in order to climb down the ladder leading into the Agility Arena.

How to Play

GreenRedShortly after entering, you should see a flashing arrow on your mini-map. You must follow after it and then tag the pillar that another animated arrow will point to. Of course, you'll need to climb, jump, dodge or walk over obstacles in order to get there. When you tag the pillar, a small box in the upper left-hand corner of your game screen will turn green. If you tag another pillar while that box is still green, you'll receive an Agility Ticket. If you miss, the box will turn red again.

Tag the pillar!

The key to getting to the pillars in time is speed (and a little luck too). You'll have about a minute or so to tag the pillar before the arrow stops flashing and you'll need to tag another. Find the easiest and quickest way to the pillar. Sometimes you may need to run past a Swinging Blade, but those are much harder than other obstacles like Monkey Bars or a Wall. Try finding easier ones to climb over first, saving time since you won't fail as easily. Rotate your camera to see the obstacles ahead of you. Also, be sure to put Run on!

Obstacles

There are lots of different obstacles that you'll come across in the Agility Arena. Every obstacle can be failed, and will result in 2-6 points of damage, depending on your Defence and your current Hits.

Blade

Set your walk speed to "Run" and when the blade goes down, run across to the other side. You will fail without run on.

Note: Is also referred to as "saw blade."

Plank

Only walk on the un-cracked plank, not the cracked ones, or you'll fall.

Experience: 6

Planks

Low Wall

These are the easiest, although it's possible to fail with a low Agility level.

Level: 1
Experience: 8

Balancing Rope

Harder than a log balance, but it takes about the same amount of time.

Balancing Ledge

Pillar

You'll fall often, but if you get past the 2nd pillar, you'll make it across.

Level: 1
Experience: 18

Pillars

Rope Swing

It's very fast, but you'll also fall very fast as well.

Level: 1
Experience: 20

Floor Spikes

Try your luck at leaping over spikes!

Hand Holds

You fail often, but if you make it past the third handhold, you'll make it across.

Spinning Blade

Can be one of the more difficult and annoying obstacles.

Level: 40
Experience: 28

Darts

Perhaps the most difficult obstacle. If you succeed, darts will fly at the character in slow motion and you will do a Matrix-style dodge.

Note: If you fail this obstacle, not only will you lose some health, but you will also temporarily lose two Agility levels.

Level: 40
Experience: 30

Darts

If it is you dodging the darts, the camera will zoom in and do a short cutscene.

Falling From An Obstacle

There is a possibility of falling on the Plank, Balancing Log, Balancing Rope, Rope Swing, Monkey Bars, Balancing Ledge, Pillars, and Hand Hold obstacles (though if you are 50+ you only really need to worry about the Rope Swing, Pillars, and Hand Hold obstacles).

If you fall from an obstacle, you'll land below the arena near some lava. You'll need to climb the ladders in order to get up to the obstacles again.

This is where you'll end up after falling
