# Smithy pet

The Smithy pet is an item that can be found while training Smithing. It can be used to unlock the Smithy pet.

It is unlocked by training Smithing via smelting bars; smithing bars into weapons or armour; smelting corrupted ore; or casting Superheat Item.[1] However, Protean bars do not provide a chance to unlock this item.[2] Gaining this pet is based on the amount of experience awarded at once; the more experience granted per item made, the greater the chance of gaining this pet. The chance is not affected by experience boosters.

When a player obtains the pet, they receive one of the following messages:

While skilling, you find Smithy, the Smithing pet. It has been added to your inventory.

While skilling, you find Smithy, the Smithing pet. However, you do not have enough inventory space, so it has been sent to your bank.

In a purely mathematical format, the chance ${\displaystyle f}$ of receiving the pet on any particular action is

${\displaystyle f={\frac {(B/20)\times S}{50,000,000}}}$

Where:

• ${\displaystyle B}$ is the base experience per action
• ${\displaystyle S}$ is the virtual skill level. At 200 million experience, a flat bonus of 200 is applied to this value
