Skypouncer adult Solomon icon

Skypouncers are pets available from Solomon's General Store for 1083 RuneCoins (975 for members). The skypouncer originates on an icyene plane; sighting this creature is rumoured to bring luck in battle[1].

The skypouncer has three stages of growth - baby, adolescent, and adult. It takes roughly 15 hours for a skypouncer baby to grow into an adolescent skypouncer when following you, though this can be sped up by interacting with the pet. Stages can be skipped by using a Growth Surge on the pet, i.e. baby to adolescent or adolescent to adult.

Pet Point

The pet point gauge.

It will take approximately 15 hours to reach the adolescent stage and an additional 25 hours to reach the adult stage. This time can be halved by "playing" with your pet by making it do one of its two emotes. It appears that while the pet is with you, it generates its own pet points up to a cap of 30 points. When this cap is reached, simply making the pet do an emote will allow you to retrieve the generated points, making it possible to raise the pet in half the time.

A Skypouncer does not need to be fed like a normal pet. Although feeding it Tasty Treat will increase the rate at which it grows by 50%, and feeding it Jelly Treat will increase it by 100%.

Like all pets and summoning familiars, it cannot enter or use its abilities in some areas of RuneScape.

There are several recolour options that you can choose in order to customize your pet. Though the colour of most of the skypouncer's fur is constant at golden beige, specific areas of the skypouncer can be recoloured during each growth stage:

  • Skypouncer kitten: the spots on the kitten's back, and the end of its tail.
  • Skypouncer adolescent: some tufts of fur in the side of its mane, the two chevron markings on its back, the band of fur at the top of its legs, the tips of its wings, and the end of its tail.
  • Skypouncer adult: the tuft of fur on top of its head, its eyes, some tufts of fur in the side of its mane, the fur of its neck, the two chevron markings on its back, the band of fur at the top of its legs, the symbol on its kneebands, its wingtips, and the end of its tail.

AbilitiesEdit

Legendary pets have several unique abilities, described below. Pets in the baby stage can have one active ability, adolescent pets can have two, and adult pets can have three. Abilities can be switched out at any time unless that ability is on cooldown. Active abilites are switched via the pet interface by clicking on the "Abilities" button at the bottom right corner.

Life saver, slayer finisher, repair item and fertiliser are not available for Ironman accounts.

Ability Description
Forage ability icon Forage The pet can randomly forage items when they are summoned. This can also be triggered actively. The foraged item is always one of the following:
Banking ability icon Banking The pet is able to take an item to your bank; they can take one item every 10 minutes, and a stack of noted items are banked all at once. The pet's ability to bank does not work beyond level 1 Wilderness. If one just crosses the Wilderness wall (and the Wilderness level display does not actually appear; thus can be considered "Wilderness level 0") and does not walk north, then the pet's banking ability still can be used.
Scavenge ability icon Scavenge The pet is able to scavenge dropped items from the moment it is obtained. To access the scavenge feature, 'Interact' with the pet and select 'Convenience', then select 'Scavenge'. When scavenge is selected, a menu interface will appear; the pet will automatically collect charms, but is able to pick up other items too. You can make the pet scavenge: Gold, Runes & Talismans, Herbs & Seeds, Weapons, Armour, Metal Bars & Ore, Bones & Ashes, Raw & Cooked food and Miscellaneous.

The pet will only pick up one item from a slain enemy; if an enemy drops two or more items, the pet will only pick up one. The pet will not always pick up items after a kill. There is a chance that the item picked up by the pet will appear in your bank rather than being in your inventory.

To deactivate scavenge, 'interact' with your pet, select 'convenience' and select 'Heel'.

Life Saver ability icon Life Saver Your pet will save you from death, as per a ring of life. Note that this does not work in PvP areas and has a two-hour cooldown (logged-in time).
Slayer Finisher ability icon Slayer Finisher Your pet will automatically finish off Slayer monsters that usually require an item, saving you an inventory slot.
Item Repair ability icon Item Repair Once per hour, you can use a repairable degrading item on your pet to repair it immediately. This works – and costs – the same as using the POH armour stand.
Beast of Burden ability icon Beast of Burden Using a Beast of Burden familiar pouch on the pet allows it to act as a version of that beast with the same time limit. Using multiple pouches on the pet lets you extend the time up to two hours. Unlike most Beasts of Burden, legendary pets do not use summoning points. An update on 14 September 2015 established their life points at 10,600. As such, they can be killed in PvM situations.
High Level Alchemy ability icon High Level Alchemy Once per 10 minutes, use an item on your pet to convert it to coins, as per the High Alchemy spell. This requires 55 Magic, but does not need runes and gives no experience.
Fertiliser ability icon Fertiliser Every hour (of logged in time), the pet can be interacted to spawn pet droppings. It can be picked up for six buckets of compost or supercompost if the player is on a member's world. It also has a 1 in 10,000 chance of spawning Mod Daze's homework or Mod Dolan's rubber duck.

EmotesEdit

The two playing emotes for the skypouncer change as it grows from a kitten to an adolescent to an adult.

TriviaEdit

  • There is a current graphical glitch when changing the Skypouncer's colour, due to its wings having a gradient which fades to white from the default light blue. Changing the colour of the Skypouncer will cause a section of its wing to turn to the colour you selected, but it retains the blue/white fade, which may cause players to keep the default blue colour of the Skypouncer. This is assumed to be an oversight by Jagex.
  • Cerberus is the name of a three-headed dog or a hellhound from Roman mythology instead of a lion.
  • Abaddon is a Hebrew word (pronounced "avah-don" in Hebrew) meaning, 'destruction'. It is used in the Bible (Revelation 9:11) as the Hebrew name of the 'Angel of the Abyss', or in other words, one of the more powerful demons in Biblical prophecy. The Greek version of the same name is Apollyon, which is more often used to refer to the demon in the Bible.
