Agility course[edit | edit source]

If the player runs out of food any time and does not wish to risk losing items, unequip the penguin suit, resulting in being caught and stunned but otherwise returned to where Larry is on the Iceberg. The Surefooted aura makes this part of the quest extremely easy.

Jump, I say! Jump!
  • Climb down the steps and into the water.
  • Avoid the moving ice in the water.
  • Climb the stepping stone at the end.
  • Jump across the next stones until you reach the other side.
  • After crossing, continue on the path until you come to an arch covered in icicles. Use the tread softly option to pass. This must be repeated several times at each arch. Players who fail will be hit with a small amount of damage.
  • Next, climb up the ice. This can be very annoying, as players lose 20 life points each time they fail, and the failure rate is surprisingly high. For players with low Agility levels, a small amount of food may help.
  • After that, a short cutscene will play of the player sliding down a hill.
  • Talk to Agility Instructor.
