Questions & Answers

 

Will the right-click examine on skilling pets show the XP at which the pet was received in addition to the player's total skill XP?

Examining the pets will show only the owner's skill XP - not the XP at which they got the pet.

 

Will some skills have rarer pets than other skills, or are they all the same? Also, drop rates?

A lot of balancing has gone into trying to make the chances roughly the same, skill to skill. We won't be revealing drop rates (and probably never will) mainly because we want it to remain a mystery; if you see a skilling pet in-game, you'll know that it's rare.

 

Will there be any thresholds for drop rates?

Yes, it'll take into account having level 99, virtual level, and having 200m XP in the skill.

 

Will all pets have flavorful dialogue options?

Yes, most of them have multiple dialogues, and they are all brilliant. All of them.

 

Any other Easter eggs?

Yes. (they kept this one secret :P)

 

Can you confirm or deny plans to release a Final Skiller title?

There won't be a Final Skiller title.

 

Will the Voice of Seren buff that gives higher strange rock chances also give higher skilling pet chances?

No.

 

Can the Agility pet be received after each obstable, or only after a lap is completed?

Only after a lap is completed.

 

Can F2P players unlock skilling pets?

Yes, F2P players can unlock skilling pets for F2P skills. F2P players can't get pets for P2P skills during the level 1-5 trial.

 

If a new skill released, will its skilling pet be available on release?

Yes.
