Willow (pet)

Skilling pets are pets released on 22 August 2016 that are obtained from non-combat skill training. There are currently a total of nineteen skilling pets, one for each non-combat skill.

While training, the player has a chance to receive a pet as a drop. 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:

While skilling, you find [Pet], the [Skill] pet. It has been added to your inventory.

or

While skilling, you find [Pet], the [Skill] pet. However, you do not have enough inventory space, so it has been sent to your bank.

World announcementNews: [Player] has received [Pet], the [Skill] pet drop!

When a player has received and inspected their fifth skilling pet, they unlock the [Name], Jack of Trades title, along with a world announcement. When a player has received and inspected all 19 skilling pets, they unlock the [Name], Jack of All Trades title, along with a global broadcast.

Mechanics/obtainingEdit

The pets may be obtained at any level, but having a higher skill level increases the chance of receiving a pet, in addition to an increased chance with virtual levels, up to 120 (or 150 for Invention), and a further increase at 200 million experience. Virtual levelling option doesn't have to be enabled in order to get the increased pet chance from virtual levels.

For gathering and support skills (Agility, Divination, Firemaking, Fishing, Hunter, Mining, Slayer, Thieving, and Woodcutting), the chance to get a pet occurs alongside the chance to gather a resource; so the resource's level and success chance does not affect the chance of getting a pet.

For production skills, mostly artisan skills (Construction, Cooking, Crafting, Dungeoneering, Farming, Fletching, Herblore, Invention, Runecrafting, and Smithing), the chance to get a pet is affected by size of experience drops, excluding any possible bonus experience. Size of experience drop and pet chance ratio is linear, meaning that doing 100 actions that give 1 experience have the same pet chance as doing 1 action that gives 100 experience.

The following items and training methods do not provide any chance of receiving a pet:[1]

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.[2]

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.

Skilling pets will be added for combat skills (including Attack, Constitution, Defence, Magic, Summoning, Strength, Ranged and Prayer)[3] in November 2017.[4] Players have been 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 have voted on all new pets, as well as the details for the associated titles. The pets will be:

The chance of obtaining Shamini will be adjusted to account for the time taken to gather charms. The new titles will be:

Crabbe, the Slayer skilling pet, will become a combat pet and will count towards the Jack of Blades title rather than Jack of Trades. [5]
