I was smithing away at Artisans and I got a Pet Smithy, My mates are all amazed because when I got it, I was just under 1mxp total smithing XP, I'm on 1,032,834xp while I write this and they even said their discord admins were mad about it.

I hadn't even heard of skilling pets before this (Just come back from a long RS break)

Is this rare? How rare?
Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

Skilling pets are quite rare. Let's just say that there are plenty of stories of people pursuing certain pets (Bernie is an infamous example) for millions of xp after 200m but still ending up dry.

Congratulations in any case, and enjoy the pet!

Let's put it this way: before you get 99 on a skilling pet skill, you shouldn't even begin to expect getting the pet.

Seems to be entirely random. I hadn't played RS for about a year, started playing again in January of this year (2017), and almost immediately got two skilling pets. I got the invention pet on the very first item I siphoned from and I got the divination pet within doing 100k exp.

Then flip it and I still haven't gotten the slayer pet and I have gotten approximately 20m xp in it with a total of 94m slayer xp.

TLDR: It's random.

^^ This. Congratulations Phyz, that's honestly incredible!

I'm so jelly of people who manage to get the skilling pets before hitting lvl 99. These people should consider buying a lotto ticket. :P The RNG Gods certainly love them.

So far, I've only gotten one skilling pet. I have 46 million Divination experience, and I think it took about 20M XP before I received the pet. I've heard of countless stories of people finding it with far fewer, and greater amounts of XP.

They are pretty rare, for example my pets:

Ramsay: 42M exp from 115-120 onwards
Flo: 7m exp post 120
Gordie: 263k exp post 120 DG (very lucky)
Ralph: 43M exp from like 110 Theiv to 118

And currently I'm 40M exp dry on herbert post 120 herblore doing overloads/extremes.
It really varies and its very frus ;)
