Boss Pets: a Ninja Update

Boss Pets: a Ninja Update

We wanted to start 2015 off with a bang, and what better way than to introduce 26 mini pet versions of RuneScape's bosses?

You can obtain each pet as a rare drop from their boss counterpart, and the more kills you rack up the more likely it is that you’ll bag a pet. As you reach a certain kill-count threshold, you will get an increased chance of the boss dropping a pet.

Note that these kill counts are retroactive - we've been tracking them since July. Find out your current total in the Beasts interface.

Do you have what it takes to defeat a boss for the ultimate rare drop companion? If you’ve got the guts, test your skills against the following bosses in game for the chance to pick up a Boss Pet:

  • Araxxor/Araxxi
  • Kree’arra
  • Commander Zilyana
  • General Graardor
  • K’ril Tsutsaroth
  • Nex
  • Kalphite Queen
  • Kalphite King
  • Corporeal Beast
  • Giant Mole
  • Har-aken
  • King Black Dragon
  • Legio Primus
  • Legio Secundus
  • Legio Tertius
  • Legio Quartus
  • Legio Quintus
  • Legio Sextus
  • Chaos Elemental
  • Dagannoth Prime
  • Dagannoth Rex
  • Dagannoth Supreme
  • Queen Black Dragon

Most of the pets we’ve added have no requirements other than killing their boss counterpart. The exceptions are:

  • The King and Queen Black Dragonling pets, which both also require 99 Summoning.
  • Araxxor and Araxxi’s pets - affectionately dubbed Barry and Mallory - which both require you to have unlocked all the previous spider pets from Araxxi.

Plus, we’ve added a Mega Duckling pet into the game - but it’s up to you to find out how to unlock it!

Happy Slaying!
