The Brimhaven Agility Course is an Agility-training minigame located beneath Brimhaven , available to players with level 1 Agility. The official Brimhaven Agility Arena world is world 314.

On this course, it is possible to get upwards of 67,000 Agility experience per hour at level 99 Agility. At lower Agility levels expect to get around 50,000-60,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on Agility and concentration levels.

Introduction[edit | edit source]

The Brimhaven Agility Arena is very different to other Agility courses. Instead of running laps around obstacle courses, the Brimhaven Agility Arena sets players the objective to tag Ticket Dispensers for agility arena tickets. It can be found in the east of Brimhaven, run by Cap'n Izzy No-Beard, who will charge 200 coins for access.

The Brimhaven Agility Arena consists of 25 pillars, with adjecent pillars being connected via Agility obstacles. 24 of these pillars contain a Ticket Dispenser. Every minute, one of these Ticket Dispensers will be activated, and the player should try to find their way to this activated dispenser by traversing the Agility obstacles as quickly as possible. When first tagging a Ticket Dispenser, no ticket wil be rewarded. For every subsequently tagged Ticket Dispenser, one ticket will be reward. If not tagging a Ticket Dispenser in time, the next tagged dispenser will not result in a ticket.

The tickets can be traded in to Pirate Jackie the Fruit for Agility experience or a selection of items.

The best experience per hour rates will be achieved by non-stop completing Agility obstacles during the waiting time for the active Ticket Dispenser to move.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

There are several different methods for travelling to the Brimhaven Agility Arena. The best options, ordened from fast to slow, are:

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Clothing[edit | edit source]

  • Wear weight-reducing clothing to achieve a weight of 0 kg or lower. This results in a lower run energy depletion rate.
  • Wear Karamja gloves 1, 2, 3 or 4 for 10% extra Agility experience from obstacles in the Brimhaven Agility Arena.
  • Bring Karamja gloves 2, 3 or 4 when turning in tickets for the 10% experience bonus.
  • Wear Karamja gloves 4 for a 10% chance of obtaining two tickets instead of one.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

  • Bring 200 coins to pay Cap'n Izzy No-Beard for access to the arena.
  • Bring some food to restore lost Hitpoints from taking damage from failing Agility obstacles.
    • Summer pies are recommended, as those resore run energy and boost the Agility stat by +5, which is useful since the darts obstacle will drain the Agility stat with 2 levels upon failing.
  • Bring enough Energy-restoring items for enough energy to constantly run around the course.

Route[edit | edit source]

It is important to be able to quickly traverse the arena in order to tag the Ticket Dispenser in time. Since the time needed to cross an obstacle varies heavily, the shortest route is not always the quickst. The image on the right will give a rule of thumb on what the quickest way is to get from one end of the arena to the other.

After tagging a Ticket Dispenser, get to the nearest pressure pads or floor spikes as quickly as possible. When arrived there, cross this obstacle for Agility experience untill the next Ticket Dispenser becomes active. The quickest routes to the pressure pads and floor spikes are drawn in the image below. The purple line shows the the quickest route in most occasions.

Other tips[edit | edit source]

  • At lower Agility levels, the gain from cashing in fewer tickets may outweigh the value of saving for the better "exchange rate", since a higher Agility level will decrease the chance of failing obstacles.
  • At higher Agility levels it might be beneficial to save up on tickets and wait to trade them in at higher Agility levels, since more experience per ticket will be rewarded at higher Agility levels.

  1. Measured in game ticks, which equal to 0.6 seconds.
  2. There is 100% success rate for the correct plank, which changes every minute. The "bad" planks can be identified by chunks of wood missing from the sides. Players with 99 Agility (boosts work) can walk on any plank without consequence.[1]
  3. Failure of this obstacle will result in temporarily draining 2 Agility levels.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

The reward store interface.

For each pillar successfully tagged while active, the player will be awarded a ticket. Players who have completed the elite tasks in the Karamja Diary will have a 10% chance to receive two tickets upon tagging a pillar. These tickets can be traded in with Pirate Jackie the Fruit for Agility experience or a selection of items.

Experience[edit | edit source]

Trade tickets with Pirate Jackie the Fruit in return for Agility experience. If more tickets are traded in at once, the experience reward per ticket will be increased. Additionally, players wearing Karamja gloves 2, 3 or 4 will receive 10% more base experience per ticket.

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 sciencefiction 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."
