Seriously, you really need to make this game fair for all who play it. I just saw a player with Malcolm at 1.7m xp invention.

I have always thought that a skilling pet should be a reward for getting 99 in that skill and if you decided to invest time over 13m your chance of receiving a skilling pet has increased even lvl 100.

common 1.7m xp seriously?

and before the trolls start, i've only rec'd 1 skill pet ( fishing) my xp is over 121m so ye.

Lotteries are a money making game of chance with set odds.

This is a game not a game of chance.

Those odds are so long that you are more likely to:

* Die — during an average lifetime — of flesh-eating disease (1 in one million).

* Be killed by lightning (1 in 56,439).

These odds of getting a pet on this game for one is 1 in 1.7m and for others it can be 1 in 12 1mil or greater. ( JUST USING MY FISHING XP FOR THE EXAMPLE) or a lvl 80+ getting a cooking pet while others with well over 20m xp haven't.

So i guess your point is you're not a troll but you have a wise answer that doesn't make sense.

End of it.

That's like saying clue scrolls aren't fair.

Or Slayer isn't fair.

Or bossing isn't fair.




Last I checked, if you don't have luck in getting something right away for instant gratification, it's not "fair".



Also your argument that a lottery is a game of chance with set chances...

Uhm.

That's exactly what RNG is. You have a set chance to gain a skilling pet. You can roll lucky or unlucky while 99, 120, and 200m xp increase your odds (slightly).

It's like buying 2, 3, 4, 5 lottery tickets vs one.


Lastly, your examples on chance with lightning strikes and flesh eating diseases don't take environmental, life choice... heck, just LIFE into account.

In here it's a constant set chance to gain a pet with slight increases at 99, 120, and 200m.

The skilling pets is the same as the boss pets really...Could get those in one kill or tens of thousands of kills....All depends on chance,luck etc etc whatever you want to call it.
Same thing as rare drops from monsters...Some people get them as common as bones,coins and junk while others may never see one ever.

I dont recall them saying it was ever fair or not fair but something everyone has the chance of obtaining...Some people are just lot luckier then others its just how it is.

Dont see why the skilling pets should be any reward for 99 when open to everyone regardless of level.Which is a nice thing anyone and everyone has the same opportunity to get them...Minus invention of course which is locked behind three skils one of them kind of sucking as much as agility does.

When if someone wants a pet locked behind a level 99 skill you got the dung pets and the 4 dragon eggs.

What's fair to you might not be fair to others and vice versa. I'm sure there are people with more than 200m fishing exp who are still unable to obtain the fishing pet, whereas you got it at 121m. Where's the fairness for those players then?
