What we will not be doing is listing every single method for every single skill; the only cases in which we explicitly prohibit Skilling Pets from being obtained are typically temporary events and Treasure Hunter items such as proteans and dummies (although sometimes exceptions are made, like with 2017 Christmas XP activities).


Just to be clear -- If I'm training Divination at the Incandescent Colony but using an Elder Divination outfit and an aura* (additional to other non-MTX boosts), am I eligible to be awarded Willow?

*I'm pretty sure auras don't count as MTX, but a case could be made for it. So, I thought I'd just mention that I'm using them, too, for the sake of clarity.


As the method is obtaining incandescent energy, it counts fer Willow. I had the outfit when I got Willow, and I dinnae believe stuff like equipment is taken intae account

Thanks mate! I was actually just coming to check if anyone had responded to this question when I FINALLY got Willow. It's my first Skilling Pet, and it came after over 16,000,000 XP of trying, all of that XP gained after v. level 120. I was beginning to look for any reason I could've been messing it up! Haha.

Have a good one!

I don't get how the first number works.

you say it's 4 ticks per log on ivy, so does that mean it's 6 ticks per essence when mining.

The rs wiki says it's 3 ticks for every 2 essence. I thought everything was equal chances.

This also means mining real ore is worse chances then seren stones or essence. The longer the action, better your chances it would seem.

Edit: Not thinking good atm. It's 1.5 ticks for every essence. How much ticks per ore is it when you mine, and if someone steals your ore does it lose out your chances ?

You know those times when you are mining and the ore is gone. Should I let my character continue mining or just move to another rock. I never could understand how the skil pets worked in that regard.

Edit again: Sorry, I know I have a lot of questions about the time based skill pets. Another time I'm not sure of is in bonfire making for firemaking pet. At the very last moment when your character stands there after a log is burnt, does that count as a chance for the pet too?

I always burn the rest of logs then, but it's kind of sad if this is also a chance, just wondering..

So how does (840 / 30) * (120 + 200) / 50,000,000 convert to 14/78,125? I got 0.0001792. Any more explaining would help.


I'll try to help

1) count number of zeros after the decimal. There is 7 therefore your number is 10,000,000. You just add the number of zeros after a 1 past the decimals.

2) put that weird decimal number of 0.0001792 over a 1 (like a fraction)

3)multiply both by 10,000,000. The weird decimal by 10,0000,000 and the 1 on the bottom.

4) now that you got your fraction the hard part comes in. You have to find the largest number that divides into both of those.

eg. 50/100 - largest number that goes into both is 50 so it would be 1/2. You can see why it's harder because these are huge numbers XD

idk if this helps or not

Please make it possible to obtain skill pets upon turning in contracts at the Arc - especially combat ones. If Slayer contracts can award the Slayer pet, then Constitution contracts can award Morty.

That is all.
