A big, angry troll. Or maybe not!
The baby troll is a pet obtained in the first part of the Burthorpe tutorial, Stop Them In Their Tracks!. Like all trolls, it gets its name from the first thing it eats. Baby troll first appears in a cutscene in the Troll Warzone. It crawls out from behind some rocks after the player defeats Morningstar, which is the mother troll as Ozan assumes. Imperial Guard soldiers chase it into a cannon, where the player has the option to either take it out and adopt it or fire the cannon. If shot out of the cannon, the player can later talk to Shaun Keymans to adopt it, as it fell into some manure.
If the baby troll is later lost you can receive another by talking to a pet store owner and asking if they have found any strays, you can also ask Corporal Keymans for another baby troll. If lost, the baby troll's name will not reset and it will still have the name you gave it when it is reclaimed. To get rid of baby troll, select Summon>Details and 'Dismiss' it.
Using an item on it causes the Baby troll to say, "YUM! Me Like (item's name)!" If a name has not already been given, or if its name is reset, it will become that of the item, and the item will disappear. The Baby troll's name can be reset by talking to it and choosing the second option.
If an item cannot be fed to it, the Baby troll will exclaim, "(Baby troll's name) no like that!"
If you attempt to feed a borrowed item to your baby troll, you will get a message saying: "You can't feed your baby troll someone else's item!"
13 special names can be given to Baby troll by feeding a Valentine heart. Players can choose to give the generic Valentine heart name or one of the 13 special names. There is an option to randomise the one given special name which can be used until the desired name is chosen. The 13 available names are Baby, Boo, Cutie, Darling, Gorgeous, Honeybunch, Lovely, Pet, Snookums, Sugar, Sweetheart, Sweetie and Treacle. This was a semi-hidden update, given by Jagex in the 2013 Valentine's Day newspost in a form of a riddle.
Players with a lot of wealth can reset the Baby troll's name and feed it an expensive item, so its left-click option becomes "Pick-up (expensive item)". Unsuspecting players who click on the pet, hoping to loot said expensive item from the ground, are thus 'trolled', hence the significance of the creature: a baby troll.
Note: Items fed to the Baby troll are lost and cannot be re-obtained; please proceed with caution when feeding it.
If one places a baby troll in the menagerie, reclaims another and renames the new one, the troll in the menagerie also gets the new name. Once a baby troll is placed in the menagerie for some reason its examine text will change from "A big, angry troll. Not!" to "A big, angry troll. Or maybe not!"Note: As most untradeable items cannot be fed to the baby troll, a list of such items is not kept. Below is a list of exceptions.
- Sticky red goop
- Treasure chest
- Dwarven army axe
- Troll general's bones (My own dad)
- Troll lieutenant's bones (My dad's friend)
- Pets (except Eek)
- Wicked hood
- Ex-ex-parrot in a magic cage
- Treasure chest (Carnillean Rising)
- The Baby Troll is the first pet with the ability to run with the player.
- If you feed the Baby Troll a valentine heart The Baby Troll will say "YUM! Me like be your valentine!" but if you feed it something else first (e.g bones) the Baby Troll's name will not change.
