A mark of grace is a type of currency that can only be obtained from the Rooftop Agility Courses. The marks are exclusively used to purchase the pieces of the graceful outfit and amylase, which is the secondary ingredient for creating stamina potions.
Obtaining marks of grace[edit | edit source]
Marks of grace appear randomly as players traverse obstacles on Rooftop courses. Higher level courses have a greater chance of spawning marks. Marks spawned are player-specific, meaning players are only able to see and pick up marks spawned for them and not for other players.
When a mark appears on the course, players have 10 minutes to pick up a mark before it disappears. Marks spawn at random times at specific locations along a course. It is possible for multiple marks to spawn on the same tile, which will stack the marks of grace and reset the timer to 10 minutes. It is also possible to obtain marks of grace every lap or every other lap by collecting a mark of grace, moving 1 section forward in the agility course, waiting 5–6 minutes, and then continuing onto the next lap.
Chances of obtaining marks of grace are reduced to 20% of the normal rate if the player's Agility level is 20 levels higher than the course requirement. Until the player reaches that level, marks of grace will continue to spawn normally.

Optimal Strategies[edit | edit source]
Marks seem to spawn based on your time spent on a course. When you've reached a time threshhold, the course will allow a mark to spawn on the next lap or floor transition. This is evidenced by logging out/ staying on the final obstacle of a course, starting the next lap and guaranteeing a mark spawn.
Canifis Agility Course has seemingly the greatest chance at spawning marks for players between level 40 to 59 Agility, due to laps being very quick to finish, giving less of a delay for spawning the next mark when it's available. Players can consider using this course until 60 Agility to obtain a full set of the graceful outfit. However, if a player is planning on training past 60 Agility, they should consider the Falador Agility Course when they can. The Falador course offers 25% - 50% higher experience rates while sacrificing 7% - 10% of the marks generated.
More importantly, the Seers' Village Agility Course offers very good rates for marks (matching and exceeding Canifis) and experience regardless of Kandarin Diary tier. Some players choose to use the Falador Agility Course and the Wilderness Agility Course to get to Seers quicker, opting not to deal with the slow experience rates of Canifis despite its speed at obtaining the Graceful outfit as early as possible.
Spending marks of grace[edit | edit source]
Marks of grace can be traded in at the Rogues' Den through Grace, an NPC who sells the graceful outfit as well as Amylase packs for marks of grace. The price of each piece of the graceful outfit varies, some costing more or less than others, with the full set costing 260 marks of grace.
|Graceful hood||100||35||28||-3 kg||-0.086 kg/|
|Graceful top||100||55||44||-5 kg||-0.091 kg/|
|Graceful legs||100||60||48||-6 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful gloves||100||30||24||-3 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful boots||100||40||32||-4 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful cape||100||40||32||-4 kg||-0.100 kg/|
In addition, players can pay 90 marks of grace to recolour an entire graceful outfit, or 15 marks of grace per graceful article, to one of six different colours by talking to Osten in Shayzien as long as the player has 100% favour. Players can also buy a dark blue recolour by paying 250 agility arena tickets to Pirate Jackie the Fruit at the Brimhaven Agility Arena entrance.
Considering the price of Amylase crystals, a mark of grace can be considered to be worth 9,800.
