extra points[edit source]

do we really got extra point if we got a special type of clothing? (like jester set or any "fun" armor...) I heard it somewhere and i want to know it it's true.Zebe311 16:51, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Only if its parts of the circus outfits. Not Jester or anything else.

So if I take full acrobat, i'll get bets points?Zebe311 19:50, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I dont think it HAS to be a circus outfit...if u ask baltzhaar or wutever about increasing your score he just says wearing a fun outfit, i dont think he says anything about them being circus outfits

Here's some more info. I believe that wearing armor related to the performance also affects your clothing bonus. For example, today I wore audience leggings and the boots. Besides that, I was wearing Void Range helm, Void Top, Void Gloves, Zanik's Crossbow, Bone Bolts, Amulet of Glory, Ring of Wealth, Damaged Book, and Ava's Accumulator. I talked to the ranged person, and left immediately and scored 90. I tried it with the Agility and Magic performances with the same gear and got 15 points for both of them. Besides the circus gear, one of my armor pieces was "fancy" (I'm guessing probably my Void Knight Top), but when I entered the range performance, I got a much higher bonus. When doing the Magic performance, wear Mystic, etc. 21:20, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Scoreboard[edit source]

I'm pretty sure its the last 50 players scores that are displayed not the top 50 scores.Different340 20:38, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Fixed.   az talk   05:20, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Some Info On Performance[edit source]

Ok, just some inside info for anyone to use and/or test for results. I missed the Circus the first day it was out but have been every since. The first week (Catherby), I did exactly what was asked from the audience with emotes, none repeated and got a rounded score of 800 in each event (netting me 3 of the 4 Acrobat cloths). The next week (Taverly), I tried again following the audience and using emotes, none repeated and still got 800 in each event (netting me the last Acrobat piece and nothing else). This week (Edgeville), I went in to get the lowest scores, to try and get the audience pieces. Here is my results from this week. I found them rather odd. I started with the Mage Event, and did about 3 casts with no emotes. Then I accidentally clicked a House Teletab and left the event. When I got back, I had the Audience Shoes without having to finish my performance. I then went to the Range Event and picked up only Throwing Knives. Went to the 99 Spot (on both sides) and did all 10 shots (5 from each side) with no emotes and completely ignoring the audience. Got a score of 1100 (Clown Hat). Then went to the Agility Event, grabbing only Chinchompas. I did all my emotes first, starting from the top left and worked across and down until the Chatbox told me that emotes would no longer effect my performance. Then, I juggled Chinchompas (level 99) 10 times in a row. The whole time, I got a message says something along the lines of "The audience disapproves of your repeat performance." When I was done, however, I got a score over 1200 (Ringmaster Hat). These results are interesting and surprising to me. Feel free to try it out and see if you get the same results.--Ixindor 22:03, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Wow that works for me too....before my max was like 880 to 960..and i tried this and failed like 4 times on ranged and got 990, failed twice on agility and got 1040, failed twice on mage and got 1060....SlayerThrasher6920 Strength 22:31, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, my method involves drinking a dose of the appropriate potion (ranged, magic or agility) before doing each move, then doing a different emote after each trick. I'm only 70 agility, but doing the 99 agility move, then juggling chinchompas, then the 99 move, etc managed to net me about 1470 points. Perhaps 10 doses per performance is overkill, but it seems to work. Fire cape.pngAlex D T 22:43, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Didn't work for me. Got somewhere in the 400s for each of Ranged and Agility. Chozo01 08:12, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Ring masters Guide[edit source]

i am not sure if i need to do full guide, or not just added i am willing to do more complexe guide

-- phamtom21 11:58, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

It would be a waste of time writing a really complex guide. Getting ringmaster is incredibly easy. Simply do 99 stuff (90 if you fail more than twice) followed by an emote. Repeat. That's how i got full ringmaster in only 3 weeks. Wearing funny clothing doesnt seem to make a difference neither does following what the audience say. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 14:22, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Is it just me, or does the Ringmaster Costume guide seem unnecessarily long? I'd prefer to summarise all of those into 2-3 lines. "Perform all level 99 stuff; in between different emotes; repeat 10 times. Voila!" I agree with Merci on the "funny clothing" part, it just does not matter. That sort of information cannot be verified.   az talk   14:33, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

basic guide is better, Skull.png Phamtom21 Skull.png

Okay, I have 75 Ranged and Magic, and 63 agility... I use Eagle Eye and Armadyl armour for the ranged section, and Dagon'hai robes and Mystic Might for the magic part. For the tightrope, I bring nothing at all (to bring my weight down), and I still never get more than 1000 points!!! WWTDD? 21:23, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Ringmaster's Costume guide[edit source]

think would table be easier to understand EG::

my sandbox Skull.png Phamtom21 Skull.png

Agility?[edit source]

I got my first piece of Ringmaster from Agility performance wearing full acrobat clothes (from Circus), Spottier cape and Boots of Lightness. I failed once, which kinda crosses with the article information. "If you fail once or more, you may not get it." -You may get it even if you fail once.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

You get 1475 points for a perfect agility performance. The cutoff for ringmaster items is 1200, so I think you can fail twice. Three times, however, and you won't get anything. Fire cape.pngAlex D T 03:03, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Full Screen HD[edit source]

I am not able to go into full screen because of my computer...but all the audience remarks cannot be viewed with a smaller screen. I have noticed I always get much higher scores (100 or more xtra pts) and this frustrates me

You can always ignore the audience, and get very high scores. I myself obtained the full Ringmaster costume ignoring the audience.   az talk   09:53, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

ringmaster guide[edit source]

why is it not needed many people asked for 1 , and still are i think it was important part of the guide as a fansite it must contain all aspects of the game, if im wrong and a fansite is just general information then i can see alot of pages on wikia thats not needed ive re-added my guide for costume, ive played runescape for 7+ years

if you feel that you dont need input of long term players then you have my permission to delete my account on here Skull.png Phamtom21 Skull.png

maximising XP[edit source]

well since many have learned to maximise points and now have full ringmaster, clown, and acrobat. Does anyone have tips to maximise xp gained to the skills? It seems that the all the advice so far is all about points. ~kytti khat 16:57, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Twice in a week[edit source]

I always visit the Circus on Wednesday, as soon as it moves. But a day later, I can do all the events again! Is this a bug? WWTDD? 21:21, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Wilful Low Balling[edit source]

I wondered if someone could make a small addition to this topic regarding the intentional low balling of scores to get all Audience clothes and the giant hand. I do think that despite people coming to the circus to perform, the main reason is to obtain the costume pieces.

If someone could write a small guide to Low Balling your score so you get peasant gear, That would be good :)

Just a Thought, Em lost 23:30, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Pretty sure just spamming the level 10 tricks will get you a really low score --Urth 19:45, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Hmm, I see someone's gone ahead and filled in the tables. Either that, or I missed seeing them the first time. Regardless, a comment: The main page lists a separate value for if you barely succeed. However, in my experience barely succeeding just gives you the same xp as the task 40 levels below your level (So, in the case of being level 70, they give xp as a level 30 task. Being level 60 gives level 20 xp for barely succeeding). --Urth 15:06, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

I noticed the same thing, maybe the column for barely succeed exp should be removed and a note placed in the text for what exp you get for barely succeeding.--Tharkon 17:32, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Experience tables, need help from range and Aglity please[edit source]

With my levels in Agility and Range not being in the 90s, I just barely succeed at the higher level challenges (when I pass them at all). If any high level people could carefully watch the xp they gain for completing those, well, it would be real nice to have a complete table.=) --Degenret01 07:49, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

From what i'm seeing it's very clear that if you reattempt a failed level your score goes down, here's my results from the ranged part:
lvl spot xp succeeded on:
99 1,510 3rd try
90 1,511 2nd try
80 2,187 1st try
70 1,979 1st try
60 1,875 1st try
50 1,563 1st try
40 1,510 1st try
Normally i have a better success rate on the higher level spots but this week i went in and had forgotten to recharge prayer and didn't bother with a range pot (i've been going for the audience costume, since i have all the rest of the outfits. and only have one more piece, want to guess which one?). So this makes me want to know which ones are worth retrying and which ones aren't. i'm guessing that the answer to that question will be based on skill level. ~kytti khat 11:13, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
well looks like i just rediscovered what they've already compiled over at runehq. BTW no plagiarising! but at least my figures are backed up by theirs, still we'll want independent confirmation if possible. Still it makes me wonder why the level 90 and 99 spots were/are compromised on experience. It's as if the experience curve per level is designed to boost players into the mid-level ranges but then do little after that. ~kytti khat 11:25, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, any numbers I put up I got from personally doing it. I haven't looked at Runehq (or any other help site besides the wiki [this is the only help site the work servers don't block =)]) in over 6 months. So we can call this pretty solid. Yea, I also thought there was a big disparity in how XP was awarded. And why so much Mage XP vs so little Agility and Range? I wonder if when they came up with these events they just didn't lay the xp out in a format like we have, so it never occurred to them is all.--Degenret01 12:43, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

BTW kytti, when you did pass those events on the second and third try that was a "just barely" pass? That would fit what we have so far then.--Degenret01 12:45, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

well this was the first time i was actually checking my xp levels, so my guess is yes. it seems the "just barely" might be based on location-vs-costume and other weighted figures. And as for why they didn't lay out the information plainly, I could tell you with no doubt that if they had presented it straight forward then the high-levels would be complaining about the weighted bias. But the weighted bias is likely there to help move players into a "middle-class" bracket thus maintaining their interest level as they don't feel as much need to catch-up to seasoned players (and thus burn out in the process causing a loss of interest). On the other hand the type of players that go for 99 (and possibly lose interest after attaining such a goal) are appeased with enough xp (relative to post-middle class level) and thus have their interest levels maintained for longer periods of time. And of course as long as interest maintains for a continued membership, the company designing this stuff can continue to maintain operations (you know that thing called revenue). That's as best as i can explain the way it is likely done when laying out figures for something designed to be a diversion (now for a much needed cup of coffee). ~kytti khat 16:25, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello! I'm lvl 99 in both range & agility and will happily be a guinea pig if you would like. I can say this; my maximum xp for a clean run for range is 17710 xp. For this I'm throwing knives at the spinning target (even stars) & axes at the ducks (odd stars). For agility the max xp for a clean run is 10204xp. (It's nice that they now tell you the xp and circus score.) Again, I alternate between juggle & trick starting with juggling the chins (even) and performing tricks (odd). I've done the circus this week but will try to remember to capture the missing xp for agility & range next week. Gentleway 19:17, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I updated the agility with the values I'm 100% sure on but there are mistakes on the page. It would be nice to have someone confirm them. For agility I disagree with lvl 10 & 20. The tricks & juggling should be the same and they're not. The tricks "barely" don't make sense for the values to drop at higher levels, these are wrong but at level 99 I won't ever get a 'barely" anymore. For range I missed lvl 90 :(. I'll get it next week. There was discrepancy for a few values by 1 so for those I adjusted to .5 accordingly.Gentleway 18:36, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
I think "barely succeeding" fetches less xp than just succeeding; the mage xp I received agreed with those in the table, except the 99 task for which I only got 2206xp (my mage level is 91). Stewbasic 16:22, January 10, 2010 (UTC)
Just noticed someone has already put in columns for agility and range for this. I added one to one of the mage tables. However my "barely succeed xp" for agility was 831 for level 90 and 829 for level 80 (within 1 xp). The values listed decrease from level 70 to 80, which doesn't make sense unless it depends on how many levels you fall short of the recommendation. Stewbasic 16:39, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Fairy Cruelty?[edit source]

One of the features of the magic preformance is alchemy and teleportation, and the assistant is in the corner that you cast these spells in. You know where this is can turn the assistant into gold. Wouldn't that kill them? Although, I find myself rushing to the north-east corner to alchemize the little fairy every single time....Wrathanet 01:24, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Well i'm guessing they only turn the outer layer of dead skin to gold which is then teleported away and/or destroyed, i don't know. --HeadManiac 22:38, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

I think it's a doll... it doesn't move... Stewbasic 14:48, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

All change at Midnight?[edit source]

I was taking advantage of being up 15 minutes after Midnight GMT, collecting my daily flax in Seers' Village and spinning it. I noticed the Barker was shouting that the circus was in Rimmington. I remembered it being in Falador. I checked the world map but it indicated the circus was still at Falador. I logged out and in, and the icon switched to Rimmington. It seems that the minimap doesn't update moving icons within the one game session. This leaves me with two questions:

  • Does the circus always move at midnight or was this just a freak chance that Jagex decided to move them between Midnight and me looking?
  • I did not get a server reset message. Does the circus physically move locations like the imps creating crop circles to puro-puro for Impetuous Impulses?

Obsidian charm.png Magma2050 T C E Obsidian charm.png 01:01, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Jagex always move stuff after midnight GMT, like the penguins and the circus, but some things like the charge of the falador shield, the run charges of the explorer's ring, the amount of penguins that you SAY that you spied on the week on quickchat, etc just change when u logout and then login. Quest point cape detail.png Brux Talk 00:49, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Correct, even thought Circus will have moved, if you had gone to Rimmington without logging out, you would have got the messages that you already did the performance. Vice versa, if you (almost) forgot to do the circus for a week, you can do it twice in the same location using the same "trick".--Tharkon 17:29, January 11, 2010 (UTC)

Wrong XP on agility table[edit source]

I just barely suceeded at the lvl 90 large roll.. and I got 250xp, not 415 or whatever it says on the table. Maybe it's wrong or maybe it's different depending on your lvl? 15:35, May 11, 2010 (UTC)

That's because you BARELY succeeded since you don't have the actual level requirement. If you barely succeed, you get a capped amount of XP, which happens to be 250. 15:37, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
The OP was comparing his barely succeed (250) to the table's barely succeed (415), not to the table's full experience (1354), so the criticism is valid. FWIW, I get different numbers than what are in all the tables for both "barely succeed" and "succeed," so I suspect there are two possible variables: it could vary by player level and it could be random (or both, like it's random within a range, but the range is determined by player level). --Saftzie 04:17, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

The location on the Circus page isn't updating with "Circus City" template. The Circus City template shows the correct location for this week (Taverly) but the Circus page still shows Catherby. When in edit mode, there is a comment stating not to edit that page and that it automatically updates in sync with the Circus City template (and to refresh the browser), yet it does not update even when I refresh my brower. Please fix this so that the Circus page does not rely on the Circus City template.

Green Highlighting[edit source]

The green highlighting sections of the experience tables are quite misleading. It suggests for the reader to perform every action, that has been highlighted to gain the maximum experience possible for Magic, Ranged or Agility. For example, the Agility's experience table highlights the highest 5 skills levels (60-99) for both tightrope and juggling actions which suggests to the wiki reader to only peform this actions. I believe the highlights on the table should be removed to prevent confusion for brief readers. AshleyWellington 18:05, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Do you have to profided your own runes etc?[edit source]

see title: Do you have to profided your own runes etc? Leon Art 19:15, May 10, 2011 (UTC) Just wondering...

No, you pick up tabs from the equipment box. 04:29, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

XP[edit source]

The article implies you can still get XP for doing tricks the same level as tricks you already did as long as they're not the same trick. I don't think that's right. I keep getting told I already earned XP for that move even if it's not the exact same (just the same level). 22:34, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Just noting that the article is wrong again about the location. And I can't change it from Lumby to Varrock because it's supposed to change automatically. =/

Agility[edit source]

I managed to get all the ringmaster gear doing the same thing every week (Note: I do have 99 Agility, but you can use pies)

Repeat this over and over:

Juggle chins

Members-only[edit source]

Can someone mention that it's members only please? 22:45, June 17, 2012 (edit) (undo)

"Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza is a part of Distractions and Diversions..." and then when you follow the link, "All fourteen of the Distractions and Diversions are members-only.". I think that's why it isn't mentioned, saying it's a D&D implies it's members-only. Talk to meTHARKONMy adventurer's log 02:17, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

Curiosity on firemaking acts[edit source]

I tried using the highest tier move all the time, and it gave 729 points. Following the orders gave 730 points. Emotes do nothing, and iirc doing all of them once gives 2nd most points, next to following orders assuming they dont repeat. --Jlun2 (talk) 10:00, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I followed the orders this time and I even though I ended up doing the Spinning Seira twice, I ended with 757 points. --Jlun2 (talk) 06:19, January 20, 2015 (UTC)
