FAQ sticky[edit source]
Thanks for the clarification, whoever put that in. But why does the phoenix say there's a 1/1000 chance of an egg becoming fertile? A player will always get the egg if he hasn't gotten it before.17:55, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
more questions[edit source]
1) Where has it been confirmed that you are allowed one of each type of PET Phoenix?
2) Is 72 summoning a requirement for getting the egg? (aka getting lost on the way out of the caves)
3) In the "cave with lots of the eggs" and such, is it possible then to get both types of Phoenix pets at once?

- 1) In the KB. 2) Yes. J mod post, may change. 3) No. Educated guess. ~Artwich 17:35, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
WAIT a minute! I do have a Phoenix egg and only sixty something summoning. So either the answer on 2) is or at least has once been NO.Stormpride 18:33, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
In game picture[edit source]
Would somebody please post a photo of the phoenixes in-game? I want to know which to get first.--Long Live Armadyl 20:21, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
- Check out Youtube.
- Also, has ANYONE gotten an eggling yet? I've done it 9 times straight and have since then given up. 14:43, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Do you want more images?[edit source]

am i just lucky or...?[edit source]
i got it on my first try...lol...
Uh... wow. I studied this page to prepare for my first expedition into the lair. I also got the egg on the first try. I almost had a heart attack because I thought you needed 72 Summoning to actually be able to take the egg, and my amazing ass luck would've been in vain. But wow, can't believe I got it first try.
I'm thinking these are a lot more common than the article would lead us to believe. While yes if you are extremely unlucky it sure could take years, but I found my mean hatchling on the second try, and my cute one, today, three days later. Anecdotal and lucky, for sure, are the odds maybe closer to 1 in 10 or maybe 1 in 100? Sanctumanon 02:49, March 8, 2011 (UTC)
Dialogue page[edit source]
Hi there, I've filled in the Cute Phoenix Eggling's dialogue. However, I'm a complete RS Wikia novice so don't know how to remove it from the "incomplete article" template. If anybody who does could possibly do that, I'd be much obliged :) Bouncingboff 22:24, April 24, 2010 (UTC)
Approximate chances of phoenix eggling[edit source]
After abour 10-11 months of daily phoenix lair trials, I've gotten my first phoenix egg (mean ofc, cute egglings would fail inside the desecrated pet house + demonic throne combination in my POH). So in my case it least, it took 300-odd tries. Thus, it cannot possibly be as high as 1/10 - otherwise the chance of my experience happening would be lower than 1 in a quadrillion. If it was 5%, the chance would be less than one in a million - while i did take 80+ hours to get full lumberjack, the ridiculously low chance of 1/1M means even with my already fantastically bad luck that's effectively impossible.
Obtaining a Second Egg
Since I started counting how many times I've killed the phoenix, I received my first egg after 90 attempts. I thought this was quite reasonable as I've heard that some players, such as yourself, have done the phoenix lair for longer than I have. Everyone, including members who took even longer to receive their first egg, have said that the second egg is *always* easier than the first. Two-hunred and twenty-three (223) days later (or a total of 313), I still only have one eggling. Now, the first egg *may* have actually taken longer than 90 tries if I had previously tried for the egg, but probably no more than 1-2 months worth of trips. I can't recall for sure, but if this is true, it only reinforces the fact that I should have a second eggling by now.

One Year Later...[edit source]
- I now have 1825 feathers in my bank and still only one pet. I've been killing the phoenix for over a year now (stopped once(?) for total lvl/skills, forgot one day) and still only one pet.

"Rarest pet on RuneScape"[edit source]
I agree. Rarest might not be the best word but one of the least seen is probably true. Considering not many players do the Phoenix Lair, the fact that it's a low chance to get, and that most people don't care about pets makes it fairly 'rare'.Deadlyaznboy 01:54, February 2, 2012 (UTC)
