OSRS Skilling Pets Guide

Before we begin, just a quick reminder that skilling pets is for RuneScape members only. If you’re not a member yet, then please check this store to know how you can get RuneScape membership in the most affordable way.

Now, for those who are already RS members, it may take hundreds of hours to get your own OSRS skilling pet.

What is an OSRS Pet?

The definition of OSRS pets in the game we play is that they are non-combat NPCs loyal to you and they are generally obtained by being lucky during monster drops and when you do skilling. Some RuneScape pets must be raised to maturity by following the player or in this case, it will be following you.

If you played Pokemon before and was able to hatch an egg successfully then, you should be quite familiar with the process of raising an OSRS pet.

If getting a pet is something you want to achieve, be aware that you might be getting a high-tier skilling item than a skilling pet.

What Happens When You Get Your Own Skilling Pet?

When you get an OSRS pet, it will automatically follow you around the game. Pets in the game also produce a small sound and you get this funny feeling that someone is follwoig you every single time.

Just a quick reminder that if your inventory is already full and you have an existing osrs pet, you will not receive a new pet when you are skilling.

When it comes to skilling in OSRS, the pet will be the priority over the resource that you are trying to get and it’ll be added in the last inventory slot available, while the the resource that you’re trying to gather will eb dropped when you reach full inventory.

If there’s an unfortunate time in the game that you die with a pet following you or if it is in their inventory but you weren’t able to protect it, then the pet will be dropped and it will be wandering around the area for 30 seconds before despawning. Even if you manage to return in time, you won’t be able to pick up your OSRS skilling pet.

That is why we highly advise that you insure your RuneScape pet so that you still have a chance to reclaim it. To insure your OSRS pet, you can visit Probita and pay the 500,000 coins that are required.
