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 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, the mark will stay on the ground even while logged out. 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 3-4 minutes, and then continuing onto the next lap. Ardougne is the only exception, as the marks will only spawn on the same tile, and each new mark refreshes the 10 minute despawn timer.
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 spawn based on your time spent on a course. Once you've reached a time threshold, a mark will spawn on the next lap or floor transition. This is evidenced by logging out and staying on the final obstacle of a course and then starting the next lap, guaranteeing a mark spawn.
Canifis Rooftop Course has 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 and not having to require stamina potions. However, if one plans on training past 60 Agility, they should consider swapping to Falador Rooftop Course and the Wilderness Agility Course when they can as to reach the Seers course sooner. The Falador course offers 25% - 50% higher experience rates while sacrificing 7% - 10% of the marks generated.
Rooftop Agility Course Spawns[edit | edit source]
Although the spawning of marks on the rooftop courses is randomly timed, the positions are consistent within each course:

|Seers' Village Rooftop||
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 100 marks of grace can be traded in to receive 1000 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.
|Graceful hood||100||0.6s||35||28||-3 kg||-0.086 kg/|
|Graceful cape||100||0.6s||40||32||-4 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful top||100||0.6s||55||44||-5 kg||-0.091 kg/|
|Graceful legs||100||0.6s||60||48||-6 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful gloves||100||0.6s||30||24||-3 kg||-0.100 kg/|
|Graceful boots||100||0.6s||40||32||-4 kg||-0.100 kg/|
Considering the price of amylase crystals, a mark of grace can be valued at 10,300 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. Players may also use the graceful recolour kit introduced as a reward purchasable from the league reward shop after the trailblazer league had ended. This is the only trade-able way to recolour the graceful outfit.
