The most versatile skill in Old School RuneScape, Agility allows a player to run for longer distances while being able to cross obstacles and shortcuts all across Gielinor.

Although simple in concept, Agility is one of the first skills players attempt to max because it is useful for all forms of gameplay.

Training Agility is seen as repetitive in nature, and unfortunately, many of the training methods only give average amounts of Agility experience per hour. However, there are still efficient ways to train Agility to earn your skillcape as efficiently as possible.

The best way to train Agility from 1-99 in OSRS is to start with the Gnome Stronghold Agility Course till level 10, then go to Draynor Village Rooftop Course and Werewolf Skullball till level 52, and lastly do high-level courses till 99, including Hallowed Sepulchre, the Seers’ Village Rooftop Agility Course, the Prifddinas Agility Course, and the Ardougne Rooftop Agility Course.

Agility 1-99 Training Guide OSRS

While training Agility, it is best to wear as much weight-reducing gear as possible. While completing an obstacle on a course will restore a small amount of run energy, having less weight gives you a great chance of succeeding.

It is also worth mentioning that having negative weight is the same as having zero weight and does not provide any additional benefits. For example, if you are wearing nothing but the Boots of Lightness (which give you -4 weight), it is the same as if you are wearing nothing at all.

The Graceful outfit is highly recommended and should be unlocked as soon as possible. This Agility skilling outfit can be obtained by turning in Marks of Grace to purchase each Grace outfit set piece.

Levels 1-10: Gnome Stronghold Agility Course

Starting off at 1 Agility, you can complete laps of the Gnome Stronghold Agility Course to gain around 6k Agility experience per hour.

While there are other methods of getting Agility experience at level 1, utilizing this agility course is the most reliable as it does not have any other requirements.

Levels 10-25: Draynor Village Rooftop Agility Course

The first of nine different rooftop courses in Old School RuneScape, running laps of the Draynor Village Rooftop course will earn you nearly 10k Agility experience per hour.

The main benefit of running the different rooftop courses is that there is a chance a Mark of Grace will spawn on each lap, which can be used to purchase the Graceful outfit.

Although boring over time, Rooftop courses are known to be less click-intensive than most other methods. However, in return, you will only get an average amount of experience per hour.

Levels 25-52: Werewolf Skullball

Located in an underground section of Canifis, Werewolf Skullball is a minigame where you kick a ball through different goals on a course.

While more focus and clicking are required, you can earn up to 18k Agility experience per hour, making it the fastest all the way up to level 50 Agility.

To get to Werewolf Skullball, you must have completed the “Creature of Fenkenstrain” quest and equipped a Ring of Charos. Then you can access the hut a bit southeast of Canifis in the swamp.

The goals will change from player to player, but you will be fine if you take your time to angle your character to kick the ball in the right direction.

Bringing at least one or two Stamina potions is also recommended so you can keep regenerating your run energy.

Levels 52+: The Hallowed Sepulchre

At 52 Agility, the Hallowed Sepulchre provides the fastest Agility experience per hour all the way to 99 Agility. However, completing the Hallowed Sepulchre is a healthy balance between high intensity and high rewards.

After completing the “Sins of the Father” quest, you can access the Hallowed Sepulchre by going to the entrance in the north portion of Darkmeyer.

Be warned: the Hallowed Sepulchre is a dangerous activity with obstacles that deal high amounts of damage and can kill you.

Along with having weight-reducing gear, you will need a crossbow/ Mith grapple to swing through certain obstacles, a Lockpick to break open the coffins at the end for your reward, a form of Antipoison, runes to cast enchantment spells for portal frames, food to heal from traps, as well as a hammer, nails, saw, and planks to get through Construction-based obstacles.

The Hallowed Sepulchre is an incredibly detailed course requiring you to pass through ever-changing obstacles and routes. However, by repeatedly looting the coffins at the end, you can gain upwards of 2m gp per hour from rewards.

In order to open the Grand Hallowed Coffin, you will need a minimum of 66 Thieving, which can be boosted by using something like a Summer sq’irkjuice.

Experience rates will vary based on which floor you reach and whether you are looting the coffins.

  • 52 Agility – Floor 1 – Average 35k Agility exp. per hour.
  • 62 Agility – Floor 2 – Average 45k Agility exp. per hour.
  • 72 Agility – Floor 3 – Average 55k Agility exp. per hour.
  • 82 Agility – Floor 4 – Average 65k Agility exp. per hour.
  • 92 Agility – Floor 5 – Average 85k Agility exp. per hour.

Levels 60-90: Seers’ Village Rooftop Agility Course

At 60 Agility, you can access the Seers’ Village Rooftop Agility Course, which provides decent experience rates while significantly more relaxing than completing the Hallowed Sepulchre.

To optimize the route for training Agility at this rooftop course, it is highly recommended that you complete the Hard Tier Kandarin Achievement Diary, as you will be able to change your Camelot Teleport destination to Seers’ Village, drastically improving your time.

After completing the diary, wear weight-reducing gear and a Staff of Air with Law Runes in your inventory. Once you jump down from the roof at the end of the course, teleport directly to the front of the bank to skip the run back to the beginning.

While utilizing the Seers’ Village teleport from completing the Hard Tier Kandarin Achievement Diary, you can earn around 55k Agility experience per hour, making it the best rooftop course to train with all the way to 90 Agility (if focusing purely on experience).

Levels 75+: Prifddinas Agility Course

After completing the “Song of the Elves” quest, you can access the Prifddinas Agility Course at 75 Agility. About the same click-intensity as other rooftop agility courses, the Prifddinas course differs in a couple of ways.

While running through the Prifddinas Agility Course, a random portal may appear, allowing you to teleport ahead in the course as a shortcut.

The portal location will vary between each lap, but there are six different locations that it can spawn at (all of them right next to the regular path so you do not miss it).

Instead of randomly finding Marks of Grace like the rooftop courses, there is a 1 in 3 chance that you will earn a Crystal Shard as you go through the portal shortcuts.

Through Crystal Shards, you can effectively earn around 250k gp per hour (crushing them into Crystal Dust and using it for Herblore) or use them to recharge your Crystal Equipment.

From using the Prifddinas Agility Course between levels 75-99, you will earn roughly 65k Agility experience per hour.

Levels 90+: Ardougne Rooftop Agility Course

The highest-level rooftop course you can access is the Ardougne Rooftop Agility Course, which requires 90 Agility to train on.

The main appeal of the Ardougne course is that it provides the highest rate of Marks of Grace than any other rooftop course.

Even further, if you have completed the Elite Tier Ardougne Achievement Diary, you will have an increased 25% more Marks of Grace while running this course.

By now, players will typically have the Graceful outfit unlocked, so spare Marks of Grace can be used to either recolour the outfit by talking to Osten in Shayzien or used to purchase Amylase Crystals (used to make Stamina Potions) to earn roughly 380k gp per hour.

At 90 Agility, you can expect to earn around 60k Agility experience per hour.

Other Things to Consider

While training Agility is straightforward, there are other tips and tricks that you can utilize to speed up the training.

Since Agility is notorious for being a slow skill to train, players often search for alternative methods of achieving 99 Agility.

Graceful Outfit

The Graceful Outfit is the Agility-based skilling outfit that increases a player’s run regeneration. Additionally, it drastically reduces your weight, allowing you to succeed at obstacles more often.

Previously covered in our guide on where you can buy the Graceful set, it is one of the most commonly used outfits in Old School RuneScape, as it provides benefits for players doing quests, completing skilling grinds, and many other things.

Items That Assist With Agility

Stamina Potions are powerful potions that will restore 20% run energy and decrease the rate that your run energy drains when you run by around 70% for 2 minutes. Stamina Potions are highly recommended when completing any activity that involves a lot of running.

Summer Pies not only heal you for 11 Hitpoints (per slice), but they will also restore 20% of your run energy and temporarily boost 5 Agility levels. This temporary boost can allow you to access various shortcuts and obstacles at a lower level.

The Ring of Endurance is a reward from the Grand Hallowed Coffin from the Hallowed Sepulchre. Not only can it be charged with Stamina Potions to double the effect of drinking them from your inventory (restoring 40% run energy and reducing drain rate for 4 minutes), but it will also reduce your run drain rate by another 15% when charged.

Barbarian Fishing

Although minor, by completing Barbarian Fishing, you can earn upwards of 5k Agility experience per hour if passively fishing.

While this is not much compared to other methods, if you find yourself training Fishing early on, you can expect to gain a few Agility levels in the process.

Brimhaven Agility Arena

Located underground and ran by Cap’n Izzy No-Beard, the Brimhaven Agility Arena is an Agility-based minigame where you complete a course to collect tickets.

It can be accessed at 1 Agility, allowing a player to earn around 65k Agility experience per hour at higher levels.

Unlike other Agility courses, it is a five by five arena where the closest path to the next ticket changes often.

While it is a decent way to get experience, higher experience rates can be achieved elsewhere, along with the fact that you do not earn Marks of Grace from here.

Agility Arena Tickets can also be used to purchase the dark blue Graceful outfit recolour option, as well as a Pirate’s Hook that is currently selling for around 7.3m on the Grand Exchange.

Obtaining the Agility Skillcape

After reaching 99 Agility, congratulations! You can purchase an Agility Skillcape from Cap’n Izzy No-Beard at the Brimhaven Agility Arena for 99k gp.

The Agility Skillcape has the same properties as the Graceful Cape while restoring your run energy to 100% and giving the effect of a Stamina Potion for one minute. This effect can be activated once a day.

That is the best way to reach level 99 Agility in OSRS!
