Anachronia Agility Course

|Infobox • Talk page|
The Anachronia Agility Course is one of the primary ways of getting around Anachronia, requiring Agility levels from 30 to 85 to traverse. The course is divided into seven sections of varying difficulty but requires level 85 to complete the whole lap.
Each obstacle provides 20 Agility experience. Finishing a section (in any direction) gives additional experience. Completing the entire circuit of seven sections around the island will yield an additional 15,500 experience for a total of 20,040 experience for entire lap. Players can travel through the course starting at any obstacle, but they must traverse every obstacle in a row to qualify for the full lap bonus. There is a small chance to fail an obstacle, which will deal 5% of current health as damage, but the obstacle will not have to be repeated. Due to how spread out some of the obstacles are, there are white markings on signs and obstacles to help determine the path to take, and a dirt path between obstacles. Surge and Bladed Dive abilities as well as the Mobile Invention perk are recommended to use to move around the course quicker.
Upon completion of a full lap players will be awarded 10 codex pages and may randomly receive 1-3 pages along with other rewards when traversing obstacles. Having at least tier two luck (such as the Ring of Wealth or above, or a collector's insignia) improves the chance of getting 1-3 pages, but the 10 page reward for lap completion remains the same.
Brawling gloves (Agility) work on the course, one obstacle on the course consumes 1 charge, a lap finishing obstacle consumes 3 charges.
The Guards at either entrance to the course from base camp can be talked to or right-clicked to view the Anachronia Agility Course records: the player's fastest lap time and total number of laps completed. The Guard also provides an option to reset the lap progress.
Players may earn approximately 84 codex pages an hour, assuming an output of 12 codex pages per agility course lap, and assuming that players can complete 7 courses an hour.
Getting there[edit | edit source]
The quickest way to get to the start of the course is by teleporting to the Anachronia lodestone and walking west to the bridge then south and starting at section A. If this lodestone has not been unlocked then the player has to travel to Anachronia via the The Stormbreaker at the The Dig Site.
The course[edit | edit source]
|Section||Agility level required||Number of obstacles||Bonus||Total XP for section|
The course can be completed in under 8 minutes 30 seconds, which gives approximately 141,459 XP/hour.
With frequent use of Surge and Bladed Dive using the Mobile perk the course can be completed in under 6 minutes 30 seconds, which gives 184,985 XP/hour if alternating directions at the ends of the course.
A lap can in fact be completed in under 7 minutes with only a basic Surge and the Mobile perk; by going clockwise and using frequent and well-timed Surges.
When learning the course, it helps to look out for a mud-coloured path. There is always one when the next obstacle is not close enough to be seen on the same screen.
Obstacles[edit | edit source]
The Agility course is started at either the northern or south-western end of the base camp and can be completed in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Obstacles include traversing temple walls and cliff faces, crossing over vines, climbing over roots, and jumping across trees. Each obstacle provides 20 Agility experience. Each section of the course has different Agility level requirements.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
Completing obstacles[edit | edit source]
The chance of receiving a reward whilst completing an obstacle is increased by having at least tier two luck.

Important point - if you repeat the same obstacle over and over you will NOT have a chance to get the oils. This is the same rule for codex pages."
