Brimhaven Agility Arena is an Agility-training minigame. It can be found in the east of Brimhaven, run by Cap'n Izzy No-Beard, who will charge 200 coins for access.

Objective[edit | edit source]

The object of the minigame is to tag pillars located in the arena in order to get Agility arena tickets. The arena is made of twenty-five platforms arranged in a 5x5 square, each with a single pillar except for northeastern platform, which has the exit. Between each pair of adjacent platforms is an obstacle which must be passed, usually using the Agility skill. If the player fails to pass the obstacle, they will take damage.

How to play[edit | edit source]

One pillar of the twenty-four is the "active" pillar. The active pillar changes every 60 seconds. When this pillar is tagged, the player becomes "active". Every subsequent pillar they tag will result in the player getting one ticket. Completing the Karamja Elite diaries will allow the player to have a 10% chance at getting two tickets instead.

If the player does not reach the next active pillar within 60 seconds, they will turn "inactive" and must hit the next active pillar again to become "active".

What to take[edit | edit source]

When going to the Agility Arena, there are some items which should be taken:

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • At lower levels the Agility gain from cashing in fewer tickets may outweigh the value of saving for the better "exchange rate" (and cost of re-entering the arena).
  • After tagging a pillar, players should go back to the centre platform. They can get to any platform fairly quickly from the centre platform.
  • Players should try to memorise the general layout of the arena so that they can tell which route would be the best to use to reach their target. Avoiding dart traps should be a priority if no means of stat recovery are brought.
  • The nearest bank is located in Mor Ul Rek. Players may wish to bank their tickets every so often in case they die; as tickets are untradeable, no-one else can salvage them for you. Players may also bring some coins with them and take a cart ride from Hajedy ranging from 10 to 200gp per ride to Shilo Village for faster banking.
  • Two or three Agility potions may help to recover lowered Agility levels from the poison darts.
  • For every Agility level players have above 40, they will receive an additional 5 experience per ticket. This +5 experience bonus is applied after the 10% experience bonus from the Karamja Diary medium task rewards.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When players dodge the darts in the darts obstacle, a cut scene appears in which the character dodges the darts in slow motion, a reference to the science fiction film The Matrix.
  • The examine text on the monkey bars says "Now, I'm the king of the swingers, oh, the jungle VIP," This is a reference to the classic Disney film The Jungle Book.
  • The examine text for one set of pillars reads: "It's a small step for a player, a giant leap for player kind," a reference to Neil Armstrong's words as the first man on the moon. Armstrong had said,"That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."
