As it stands, there's not alot to 'em. It's pretty cool how what you feed them changes their name to it - but could something else be done to make them seem a little less newby and outdated in comparison to other pets? They're cute; they have potential.

Instead of turning the baby troll into whatever it eats (you are what you eat), would it be possible to have mini versions of the item on it? i.e. a Santa Hat would have the lil' guy running around with a mini Santa Hat on it's head. If it's named Noxious Scythe, it'd equip a tiny scythe in one of it's stubby hands? For items edible but not weldable, it'd carry it in between it's nubby hands or upon it's back if it's too large?

Granted, it'd become a large project having to essentially remodel everything to a smaller scale specifically for the baby troll.. but could it not be incorporated into a larger project such as a new quest following the troll series? More-so further unlocking the ability for a more useful baby/adult troll.


Bad idea?

I like the idea (though the amount of work required will probably mean that it will never happen).
However, not everything that you can feed to the troll can be suitable for your idea.
Mine, for example, is named Bark because I fed it some bark from those trees in Morytania.
Where would you put it on the troll?

:P I'd imagine he'd carry it; I could try and draw a diagram but nobody could translate scribbles.

no it doesnt follow lure of the trolls.

thats how they get their name. "my arm" is called that because he ate "my arm" (the person naming hims arm)

poorly cooked karambwan - named cause he ate poorly cooked karambwan (and due to that is ill)

etc hving it so the item is on them.... just doesnt fit. i like the idea though dont get me wrong troll with phat on etc

but how would it work with other items?

for instance

my alt has fed it burnt chompy - it cant wear a burnt chompy or hold it etc

my troll has eaten a baby dragon - cant wear baby dragon? dont know how this would work defintly cant hold one

Baby trolls are, surprisingly, already among the more customizable pets out there. They're seen as "nooby" simply because they're easy to obtain incredibly early-on, not because of their appearance or features.

As long as baby trolls remain accessible as most players first pet, they will forever be seen as "noobie", because they're most often used by players who have no other pets unlocked, and are usually discarded as soon as they do. That would happen regardless of how many features the troll has, because players usually get bored of the troll in general and want something *completely* different, or chase down specific pets as a sign of status (ie. mini boss pets, or legendary pets).

Functional features, like we see on legendary pets and magic carpets, usually play more heavily into a players choice of pet.

Pets with functions and emotes usually cost runecoins. I don’t think Jagex will spend time to improve such a petty pet that every player can get for free. This suggestion with Baby Troll is not going to happen without Jagex getting real money return for their efforts. ;)

Anyway, just for the sake of a fun discussion… I don’t think it is a good idea for such a petty Baby to wield a big bad weapon like a noxious scythe. Baby Troll has barely learned to walk, and from time to time he still tumbles. With a deadly weapon like a scythe, that Baby will be crying from the harm the noxious scythe is going to put on him.

Conclusion: No support. Just keep the big bad killing thing away from the petty Baby Troll. A milk bottle is more suitable for the petty Troll. :D
