The Penguin agility course is located on the Iceberg, and requires an Agility level of 30. Players also need partial completion of the quest Cold War, and must be wearing the clockwork suit.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  • Find Larry who is stationed by his boat to the north-east of Rellekka on the pier (outside the fence area), and talk to him.
  • After starting Hunt for Red Raktuber, Larry gives players the ability to use the boat for themselves to get to the Iceberg.
  • Once on the Iceberg, talk to Jim (north east) with clockwork suit in inventory. (Tuxedo time.)
  • Head west along the ice wall and investigate avalanche.
  • Once inside the secret lair take the first accessible door on the left (west).
  • Go through first room and then along passage west and north to large door. Open door.

The course[edit | edit source]

This course offers slightly higher experience than the Barbarian Agility Course, but requires a lower Agility level. However, all four obstacles can be failed, so food and agility potions are recommended if the Agility level is low. Players are also recommended to bring boots of lightness to decrease their weight as well as to run longer.

  • The start of the course is north of the group of penguins; may need to click on the western part of the northern tip to start. To quit the ice crusher area, click on the Ice steps.
  • After the ice crushers, climb the stepping stones just north of the ice crushers to go to the Icicles. Jump from one stepping stone to the next until you are on a path again.
  • Click on the Tread-softly Icicles to pass.
  • Then Cross Ice to the south of the last icicle.
  • At the last Cross ice, player will go down the ice slope to the end.
  • Open the gate to the west to exit.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • When doing the crushers, players should click on the first stepping stone just as the first crusher comes out to block them.
  • The platform jump depends on a player's Agility level.
  • 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.
  • For the ice slope, players should click on it when it is plain without sparkles.
  • Players cannot fail the first jump of the stepping stones and the last step on the ice slope.
