Mark of grace detail.png

A mark of grace is a type of currency that can only be obtained from the Rooftop Agility Courses. The marks are used to purchase the pieces of the graceful outfit and amylase, which is the secondary ingredient for creating stamina potions. In addition, marks can be exchanged with Osten in Shayzien to recolour pieces of the graceful outfit.

Obtaining marks of grace[edit | edit source]

Marks of grace appear randomly as players complete laps of Rooftop courses, with higher level courses having 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 it up before it will disappear. Marks spawn at semi-random times at specific locations along a course. It is possible for multiple marks to spawn on the same tile, which stacks the marks and resets the despawn timer to 10 minutes. Ardougne is an exception, as the marks can only spawn on one tile, and each new mark refreshes the 10 minute timer. Marks will stay on the ground even while logged out.

Achievement Diary boosts[edit | edit source]

Completing the easy, medium and hard Kandarin Diary increases the chance of receiving marks of grace during the Seers' Village Rooftop Course by rerolling for a mark after a failed spawn roll with a 5, 10, or 15 percent chance respectively.[1] This translates to an effective 10, 20, or 30 percent increase to the base rate of spawning marks (1/3).

Similar to the Seers' course, completing the elite Ardougne Diary adds a 25% reroll to failed mark rolls on the Ardougne Rooftop Course. In addition to this, 50% of the time the usual 3 minute cooldown is reduced to 2 minutes, which with the approximate 45 second lap time leads to an approximate 21% increase to the marks spawned per hour.[2]

Optimal Strategies[edit | edit source]

Canifis Rooftop Course has the greatest chance at spawning marks for players between level 40 to 89 Agility, due to its higher-than-normal spawn rate of 2/3 instead of 1/3, and the lack of the 20-levels-over debuff that is applied to the other courses. However, if one plans on training Agility beyond what is needed for the graceful outfit, they may consider switching to the Falador or the Wilderness courses when they can for increased experience rates. Compared to the Canifis course, the Falador course offers 25%–50% higher experience rates but sacrifices ~33% of the marks generated.

Marks of Grace Per Hour[edit | edit source]

The following values are the approximate number of marks of grace spawned per hour of rooftop Agility training, assuming the player's Agility is not more than 20 levels above the course requirement (excluding the Canifis course).

  • Draynor: 10-13.8 per hour
  • Al Kharid: 8-11.5 per hour
  • Varrock: 8-11.3 per hour
  • Canifis: 16-18.0 per hour
  • Falador: 10-12.1 per hour
  • Seers: 11-13.8 per hour (with up to ~14.4, ~15, or ~16.6 per hour with the different tiers of the Kandarin Diary completed)
  • Pollnivneach: 9-11.9 per hour
  • Rellekka: 13-15.5 per hour
  • Ardougne: 16-18.1 per hour (~22 with the elite tier of the Ardougne Diary completed)

Spawning Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Each course has a chance to spawn a mark of grace upon completion given that enough time has passed since the last mark of grace was spawned. For most courses this is three minutes. (The Ardougne course has a 50% chance to have the timer be two minutes instead with completion of the elite tier of the Ardougne Diary)

This timer works on the scale of minutes, so if a mark of grace spawned at 00:00 game time, you would have another chance starting from the first tick of game time 00:03, regardless of what tick the mark spawned at during 00:00. This timer persists even after logging out or changing worlds.

Upon completing a lap after the timer has expired, the chance to have a mark of grace spawn is 2/5 for the Rellekka Rooftop Course, 2/3 for the Canifis and Ardougne Rooftop Course, and 2/6 for all other rooftop courses. If the unboosted Agility level of the player is 20 levels or more over the course requirement, the chances of getting a mark are five times lower than normal for that course.

Chances of obtaining marks of grace are 5 times lower if the player's Agility level is 20 or more levels higher than the course requirement.[3] [4] Due to a coding error, this rate reduction does not apply to the Canifis Rooftop Course.

If the initial roll for the mark of grace is failed, another roll may happen depending on Achievement diary completion. With the easy, medium, and hard Kandarin Diary, failing to roll for a mark of grace on the Seers' Village Rooftop Course results in a second roll for a 5%, 10%, or 15% chance for a mark respectively. With completion of the elite Ardougne diary, failing to roll for a mark on the Ardougne rooftop course results in a second roll for a 25% chance to spawn a mark of grace.

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. As 10 marks of grace can be traded in to receive 100 amylase crystals, and each crystal can be used to make one dose of stamina potion, each mark of grace is good for two and a half four-dose stamina potions. 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.

Considering the price of amylase crystals, a mark of grace can be valued at 10,320 coins.

Recolouring a graceful outfit[edit | edit source]

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, matching the agility cape's colour, by paying 250 agility arena tickets to Pirate Jackie the Fruit at the Brimhaven Agility Arena entrance. Additionally, players can spend 300 Hallowed Marks gained from the Hallowed Sepulchre to obtain the Dark dye to recolour a piece of a Graceful Outfit black. There is an adventurer's outfit variant of the outfit which is based on the appearance of the Quest Point Cape, obtainable by using pieces of the tier 3 Adventurer's outfit on graceful pieces, with the adventurer's outfit costing 1,800 Quest Speedrunning points to purchase. Players may also use the trailblazer graceful ornament kit, introduced as a reward purchasable from the League Reward Shop after the Trailblazer League ended. This is the only tradeable way to recolour the graceful outfit.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Collection log tracks how many marks have spawned for the player, not how many you have picked up. With some math, you can track how many marks you may have missed.
