The Barbarian Outpost Agility Course was released along with the Agility skill on 12 December 2002. It is located within the Barbarian Outpost, in northern Kandarin, and is supervised by Gunnjorn. Access to the course requires the completion of the Bar Crawl miniquest and 35 Agility (boostable). On 21 June 2009, an advanced route was added to the course for players with high Agility levels. The basic route gives 174 Agility experience per lap and requires 35 Agility to use, giving roughly 5.8 exp per second. The advanced route gives 753.7 Agility experience per lap and requires 90 Agility to use.

Location[edit | edit source]

Barbarian Outpost Agility Course entrance location.png

The Barbarian Outpost Agility Course is located within the Barbarian Outpost, north-east of Baxtorian Falls, north of the Tree Gnome Stronghold, and south of the Lighthouse. There are four main methods of getting to the Outpost:

Once at the Barbarian Outpost, the player must pass by the barbarian guards (Bar Crawl requirement) and then crawl through a pipe (35 Agility requirement, boostable) to reach the actual Agility course.

Basic course[edit | edit source]

On the basic course, all obstacles except for the obstacle net and crumbling walls are failable, and deal damage on a failed attempt. Additionally, failure on the Ropeswing or Balancing ledge require the player to climb back up to the obstacle's starting point to regain their position in the course. Completion of a lap without failing a single obstacle cannot be guaranteed until reaching 93 Agility (this can be by a boost such as that given by summer pies).

Lap bonus 56.7 Total experience 174

Each lap gives 174 Agility experience, including the bonus of 56.7 experience on the last obstacle, and may be completed in 30–45 seconds.

Advanced course[edit | edit source]

The Advanced Barbarian Agility Course, or Extended Barbarian Agility Course, was released on 22 June 2009. It uses some obstacles from the basic course as well as some new obstacles. It requires much higher Agility and gives much faster experience than the basic course. With a requirement of 90 Agility, the Advanced Barbarian Agility Course is the highest level Agility course in the game.

Lap bonus 615 Total experience 753.7

There is bonus experience of 615 for completing the entire course. When you click to do the last obstacle, you will see 630 drop from your xp counter if you have it open. This number is the last obstacle plus the course bonus. The entire course includes the rope swing and log, and these two obstacles must be completed to earn the full 753.7 Agility experience per lap. It is not faster experience to skip the rope swing and log. If the log balance is failed, players will not receive the lap bonus.

Several obstacles on the advanced course may be failed; however, at 93+ Agility, all obstacles on the advanced course have a 100% success rate (At 92 Agility, falling off the log balance is a rare event, but still possible).

After the player has successfully completed 250 laps without failing any obstacles, he or she may talk to Gunnjorn to get the Agile top. The successful laps do not have to be consecutive and the counter is not reset if an obstacle is failed in a lap. The Agile top may be re-obtained from Gunnjorn if lost without completing an additional 250 laps.

The fastest possible time that a full lap can be completed in is about 37.2 seconds. It is possible to gain over 70,000 Agility experience per hour at maximum.

Click early, but not too early.

Click on the next obstacle while you are still completing the current one.

Get this right to save a game tick or two.

If you click on the wall jump at exactly the right time, you will run directly from the log to the wall without stopping. This is probably the most difficult time saver.

Move diagonally!

Once you are up to the next level, walk to the space just in front of the obstacle. This will allow you to move diagonally, instead of taking an L-shaped route.

Wait for it...

Only click the obstacle itself when you are already moving, otherwise, your second command may supersede the first and you end up taking an L-shaped route anyway.

Time to run!

Run in front of the spring mechanism before you fire it, again waiting until you are already running to click on it, thus allowing you to run instead of walk.

Have the Balance beam right clicked.

Finally, click on the Balance Beam right before you land from the Spring Device to make a quick transition. An easy way to do this is to right click the balance beam before you take off from the Spring Device.

Right before the roof slide, move to the northmost side, then on the slide itself spam click Surge and you'll immediately move 10 squares forward as soon as you reach the floor. This saves a tiny bit of time, but it adds up.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Only one player may use a rope swing at any one time. The course used to only have one rope swing, but a second rope swing was added, presumably to deal with crowding at the course.
