Skilling pets are pets that are obtained while training skills. The original 19 skilling pets were released on 22 August 2016, one for each non-combat skill, and 8 more were added on 20 November 2017 for every combat skill. There are currently a total of 27 skilling pets, one for each skill.

While training, the player has a chance to receive a pet. Free to play players may obtain pets from free to play skills. Skilling pets display the player's experience in the associated skill when they are examined. It is possible to override Summoning familiars with skilling pets. When the player receives a pet, they get a message, along with a world announcement.

When a player has received and inspected their fifth non-combat skilling pet, they unlock the [Name], Jack of Trades title, along with a world announcement. When a player has received and inspected all non-combat skilling pets, they unlock the [Name], Jack of All Trades title, along with a global broadcast. When a player receives their third combat pet, they will unlock the title [Name], Jack of Blades, along with a world announcement. For obtaining all combat pets, players will unlock the title [Name], Jack of All Blades, along with a global broadcast. By obtaining all skilling pets (including for combat skills), the player will unlock the title [Name], Master of All, along with a global broadcast.

Although released with the original 19 skilling pets, Crabbe was reclassified as a combat skilling pet when skilling pets were added for combat skills, thus making him a requirement for the Jack of All Blades title instead of the Jack of All Trades title like before the update. Players were able to submit concepts for the combat skilling pets as part of a competition. The ninja team selected their top concepts for each skilling pet and players voted on all new pets, as well as the details for the associated titles.

Drop formula[edit | edit source]

There are two ways of awarding skilling pets: the time-based or experience based method.[1]

Skills which fall under the time-based method are: Agility, Divination, Firemaking, Fishing, Hunter, Mining, Thieving, and Woodcutting.

Skills which fall under the experience based method are: Attack, Constitution, Construction, Cooking, Crafting, Defence, Dungeoneering, Farming, Fletching, Herblore, Invention, Magic, Prayer, Ranged, Runecrafting, Slayer, Smithing, Strength, and Summoning.

Time-based[edit | edit source]

Time value is based on how long it takes to complete an action. Multiply the time value by the skill's virtual level. If the player has 200,000,000 experience in the skill, then add +50 to the skill's virtual level. Divide it all by 50,000,000 to figure out the chance per action.

In a purely mathematical format the chance of receiving a pet on any particular action is

Where:

  • is the amount of game ticks taken per action.
  • is the virtual skill level. At 200 million experience, a flat bonus of 50 is applied to this value.

Agility differs slightly in that the chance is generated upon completing a course lap, and in this case refers to the estimated completion time of each lap.

In a purely mathematical format the chance of receiving a pet after hours of repeating an action is

Where:

  • is the hours that have been spent.

Experience based[edit | edit source]

Only the base amount of experience is considered when rolling for a skilling pet. The drop chance of a skilling pet is calculated using the base experience that the player has earned in that skill and pre-assigned modifiers based on the table below.

Skill Modifier
Construction 30
Cooking 25
Crafting 20
Dungeoneering 25
Farming 12
Fletching 20
Herblore 45
Invention 180
Runecrafting 28
Smithing 20

Divide the base experience by the modifier, then multiply it by the player's virtual level (adding +200 to the virtual level if 200,000,000 experience) to get the chance out of 50,000,000.

In a purely mathematical format the chance of receiving a pet on any particular action is

Where:

  • is the base experience per action. In Dungeoneering, this is divided by the number of party members per dungeon.
  • is the modifier.
  • is the virtual skill level. At 200 million experience, a flat bonus of 200 is applied to this value.

The formula for obtaining combat-based skilling pets is currently unknown.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The following items and training methods do not provide any chance of receiving a pet:[2]

Any form of experience boost (below) does not increase the chance of obtaining a skilling pet:

Players can get a pet while training in a Clan Citadel, as well as using portable skilling stations, skillchompas, and Crystallise.[3]

If the player's inventory is full, the unlock item will be sent into their bank instead. If the bank is full, it will be delivered to the player as soon as there is space in either of those places.

The chance of obtaining Shamini, the Summoning pet, accounts for the time taken to gather charms.

  • Skilling pets were developed as they were rated the third most desired update in the RuneScape 2017 survey of potential future content.
  • Training Dungeoneering in a dungeon will only give the chance to receive the Dungeoneering pet and pets for combat skills - no other skills inside the dungeon will give their respective pets.
  • The first player to unlock the original 19 pets and receive the Jack of all Trades title was Mr Blob on 15 October 2016.
  • The first Ironman player to unlock the original 19 pets and receive the Jack of all Trades title was B08 on 20 February 2017.
  • The first Hardcore Ironman player to unlock the original 19 pets and receive the Jack of all Trades title was Fabbles on 29 July 2017.
  • The first player to unlock all 27 skilling pets and receive the Jack of All Blades and Master of All titles was Defeater on 22 November 2017.
  • The pet unlock items cannot be fed to a baby troll.
  • Skilling pets are bankable and it is possible to receive multiple skilling pets without first interacting with the unlock item.
