The Penguin Agility Course is an Agility training area located on the Iceberg, available to players with boosted level 30 Agility. Partial completion of Quest points Cold War is also required. To access the Agility course, the player has to wear a clockwork suit.

The Agility course rewards 540 Agility experience per completed lap. With an average time of 65 seconds per lap, it is possible to get upwards of 30,000 Agility experience per hour from this course. At lower Agility levels expect to get around 22,000-27,000 Agility experience per hour, depending on concentration levels.

This course has the highest base chance to receive the giant squirrel.[1] At level 99 Agility it would take an average of 132 hours to get the giant squirrel.

Introduction[edit | edit source]

This Agility course requires a boostable level 30 Agility and is located on the Iceberg, which requires partial completion of Quest points Cold War to access. To get to the course, players need to transform into a penguin, which can be done by talking to Larry with a clockwork suit in the inventory and choosing the Tuxedo time option.

The course consists of four obstacles. Even at level 99 the player is not safe from failing all of these obstacles.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  1. Find Larry, who is stationed by his boat to the north-east of Rellekka on the pier (outside the fence area), travel to the Iceberg.
  2. Once on the Iceberg, talk to Larry and choose the Tuxedo time option. This requires a clockwork suit.
  3. Head west along the ice wall and investigate the avalanche.
  4. Once inside the secret lair, take the first accessible door on the left (west).
  5. Go through first room and then along passage west and north to large door. Open door.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Clothing[edit | edit source]

  • The cape slot should be empty while transforming into a penguin, since the clockwork suit needs to go into this slot.
  • Wear weight-reducing clothing to achieve a weight of 0 kg or lower. This results in a lower run energy depletion rate.
  • Wear a regen bracelet for an increased Hitpoints restoration rate.

Inventory[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The stepping stones and ice slope consist of multiple components that need to be clicked on individually. When clicked in the correct rhythm, which is one component per game tick (0.6 seconds), these obstacles can be cleared in a flowing motion.
  • If tread softly is not clicked while going under the icicles, players will always get hurt. Also note that if the player clicks the spot under the icicles farther away from them, they will first go on the spot closer to them and automatically get hurt.
  • While passing an icicle obstacle, already click on the next icicle before the animation is finished to save some time.
  • The crusher obstacle can always be passed without taking damage if you click through through to the end as soon as the second to last crusher on the south side as it starts its movement north when it is the only crusher moving.

Experience rates[edit | edit source]

Due to the success rate of the obstacles, the experience rates scale with the player's Agility level. At higher levels expect to be able to complete around 55 laps per hour, resulting in 29,500-30,000 Agility experience per hour.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The crushers are treated as NPCs by the game.
