This guide describes the most effective methods to train the Agility skill. The experience rate estimates in this guide do not incorporate the use of any experience boosting items or bonus experience. Agility is a support skill that allows players to regain run energy more quickly and to take advantage of shortcuts found throughout RuneScape. Training the Agility skill often involves completing laps of courses composed of series of obstacles that grant Agility experience when traversed successfully. Typically, players are rewarded with an additional, larger amount of Agility experience for completing a full lap of an Agility course, passing all obstacles successfully. During training players should ensure that they repeat any obstacles which they fail to traverse until they are successful, in order to receive this lap bonus. As players level up Agility they gain access to Agility courses which award greater amounts of experience. Levelling up Agility also decreases a player's chance of failing during Agility activities where there is a chance of being unsuccessful.
As a player's chance of successfully traversing an Agility obstacle is increased if they have a low weight, players may wish to wear weight-reducing clothing while training Agility to decrease their weight and minimise their failure rate.
Wearing components of the nimble outfit gives a percentage increase in the amount of Agility experience gained. There are five pieces in the set: the headwear, chestpiece, legwear, gloves and boots. Components of the nimble outfit can be won from Treasure Hunter. They could also be created from lightweight feathers when these were available between 10-14 March 2016. If all pieces of the set are worn, an additional set bonus effect is given.
Surefooted auras prevent the player from failing the obstacles of an Agility course while they are activated. Players may use 5 or 10 vis wax to extend a surefooted aura's activation time by 50% or 100% (costing 34, 995 or 69, 990). This effect must be applied before the aura is activated. Once a surefooted aura has been used the player must wait 2 hours before using it again. Surefooted auras can be bought using Membership loyalty points. The lower tier aura must be owned before the greater version of the aura can be purchased.
Consuming summer pie gives a temporary, visible 5 level boost to a player's Agility level. This boost can let the player access content which they do not currently have the required level for, as well as improving the player's success rate in traversing obstacles. A whole summer pie costs 913 and is made up of 2 portions. As well as boosting the player's Agility level, consuming half of a summer pie restores 20% of the player's run energy and up to 1, 187 life points, with level 95 or more Constitution.
