The Ardougne Rooftop Agility Course is a Rooftop Agility Course located above the Ardougne marketplace available to players with an Agility level of 90 or over. It is preceded by the Rellekka Rooftop Course.

The Ardougne Rooftop Agility course can be started by climbing the Wooden Beams outside of the house next to the Gem stall in the south-east corner of the marketplace in East Ardougne.

Players get 793 experience from completing the entire course, which includes 529 experience upon completion of a lap. It is currently the highest level rooftop Agility course in the game.

The Dorgesh-Kaan Agility Course offers a similar experience rate to the Ardougne course; however, Ardougne is preferred because it does not require energy potions while training. This is due to the energy restoration that happens between obstacles, which does not happen at the non-rooftop courses. In addition, the course is easier to complete as it requires less concentration.

Being the last rooftop course, it has a very high chance of spawning marks of grace, as well as having the highest experience rate per hour. A full lap of this course can be completed in roughly 46 seconds making the maximum experience per hour 62,300 assuming perfect laps. Players stop failing this course at 96 Agility.

Using this course alone, levelling up from level 90 to 99 would require 9,695 laps, meaning roughly 123 hours at the maximum hourly rate. There is also a ~26% chance of receiving the giant squirrel pet when using this course from level 90 to 99, which is a substantial portion of the ~44% chance of getting the pet from level 1 to level 99, using the standard courses.

Completing the elite Ardougne Diary will increase the chance of receiving marks of grace during this course by 25%, resulting in the player receiving approximately 25–27 marks of grace per hour. As the marks only spawn on one spot, the player can continue to run the course without picking them up almost indefinitely — they will stack and only despawn if the player stops using the course for about 10 minutes.[1] However, as a precaution, it is recommended to pick up the marks every so often.

It is possible to complete the course before level 90 Agility using temporary skill boosts. The player's Agility level needs to be boosted to at least 90 only when attempting the first, second and fourth obstacles, because the other obstacles are impossible to fail even at levels below 90. Summer pies temporarily raise the Agility level by 5, and agility potions by 3.

Summer pies[edit | edit source]

The use of summer pies at the Ardougne Rooftop Course is very popular. With summer pies you can start using this course from level 85. Below is a table to show how many summer pies are needed until the next level. All calculations are based on the use of the preserve prayer and 0 failures.

When using the summer pie/preserve prayer technique, swap out as many pieces of Weight-reducing clothing for instead Prayer items without allowing your weight to increase above 0 kg. It is advisable to even wield mainhand slot and shield slot items that will boost your prayer bonus (whereas normally one would not wield a weapon or shield while training Agility in rooftop courses).
