# Skilling Pets (chance of getting one to lvl 99)

What’s going on guys! My name is **Theoatrix**, and today I am bringing you an article about the** chance of getting Skilling Pets to 99**. For the last couple of days, I have worked out the average chance of getting a **Skilling Pet** from **level 1 – 99** in a **Skill**. This article took me a pretty long time to calculate, since the math behind it is pretty long with a lot of binomial probabilities. But, regardless, I have calculated **every single Skilling Pet**. So, hopefully, you guys find this pretty interesting. I have done a video about Skilling Pets in the past. But, this article is a little different, since the old video was sort of just explaining the drop rates and how you can get them. But, this article includes all of the **efficient and regular training methods** on the way to getting a skill to 99, and I will show you the** chance of getting a pe**t with some money making methods as well.

__Rift Guardian__ *(Runecrafting)*

Let’s start things off with the **Rift Guardian** ** Runecrafting **pet.

For the record, getting **Double Runes** while Runecrafting** does not give you a double chance **at getting the pet. The **pet is rolled per Essence **you use. From **44 – 99 **with** Nature Runes**, you have **almost a 36% chance** of getting the pet,

and the **Blood **and **Soul Runes** turn out to be **about the same chance** of getting a pet in the long term.

So, the **Rift Guardian** has been pretty well averaged out by Jagex.

__Baby Chinchompa__*(Hunter)*

Now, for Hunter… The ** Hunter **Pet is the

**Baby Chinchompa**, and that can only be obtained if you are

**catching Chinchompas**.

Once again, Jagex has done a really, really good job of scaling the Hunter Pet, and all of them give you **approximately 30% chance** of getting the pet from the starting level to 99.

Doing **Grey, Red and then Black** gives you a slightly better chance than just sticking to Red or sticking to Grey. But, of course, it is kind of **risky getting a pet in the** **Wilderness**.

__Beaver__*(Woodcutting) *

The ** Woodcutting **Pet, which is the

**Beaver**, is another pet that is pretty averaged out in terms of drop rate.

If you cut** Teak trees** from **35 – 99 Woodcutting**, you would end up cutting **over 150 000 trees**. With binomial probability, it turns out to be about a **32.5% chance** of getting the pet from **35 – 99**. That chance can be considerably bumped if you move onto **Redwood **trees at **level 90 Woodcutting**. **Magic trees** and **Redwood trees** both give about a **1 in 70 000 chance** of dropping the **Beaver **pet. On the other hand, **Teaks **have a** 1 in 200 000 chance**. So, for being almost a quarter of the drop rate, it averages out to about a **35% – 36% chance** of getting the Beaver cutting **Magic **and **Redwood Logs**.

__Giant Squirrel__*(Agility) *

So, the ** Agility **Pet was a bit of a doozy for me.

Since adding binomial probabilities is not as simple as just adding them together, I had to work out the variants, and I ended up reading some university papers on the sum of binomial random values.

Regardless, I finally worked out that on average, if you go from **1 – 99 Agility**, there is about a **24.80% chance **of getting the pet.

__Heron__* (Fishing) *

Now for the **Heron**, the ** Fishing **Pet.

**Monkfish **and **Infernal Eels** actually give you the** best chance **at getting the Heron. Doing both of these to 99 gives you** approximately a 35% chance** of getting the Heron. Whereas, if you go** Barbarian Fishing** from **level 58 all the way to 99**, you only have about a **30% chance**. Recently, **Minnows **were introduced, and they give **approximately a 27% chance **for getting a pet from level 82 through to 99. The drop rate is **1 in 977 000** for a pet at **Minnows**. But, you do catch multiple Minnows at a time.

__Rock Golem__*(Mining) *

Now for the **Rock Golem**, the ** Mining **pet.

If you do the **Motherlode Mine **from **level 30 – 99**, there is **about a 36% chance** of getting the pet. Combining both the **Motherlode Mine** with 92 and then **Amethyst **from 92 – 99, your odds of getting a pet are just a little bit higher than if you stick to the Motherlode Mine going to 99.

**Blast Mining** is also a really fast training method these days, and doing that from **level 75 – 99**, there is **about a 37% chance** at getting the pet, which is really high.

**Gem rocks** also give a decent drop rate of the pet, and if you were to do that to 99, which is pretty unlikely, you would have a **36.8% chance**.

__Rocky__*(Thieving)*

Next up, we have ** Thieving**, and I have calculated the

**Ardougne Knights**,

**Blackjacking**, and

**Pyramid Plunder**.

**Blackjacking** actually gives the **worst chance **at getting the pet, and if you were to Blackjack from** 61 – 99 Thieving**, there is** only a 25% chance** of getting the pet. A step up from that is **Pyramid Plunder**, and if you did Pyramid Plunder from **level 50 – 99 Thieving**, there is **almost a 29% chance** at getting the pet. However, the drop rate of getting a pet from Pyramid Plunder is a lot better than Thieving stuff. But, that is because getting the pet from Pyramid Plunder is only rolled when you thieve the middle chests.** Ardougne Knights**, which are probably the most common Thieving training method, are also the **best way to get the Thieving Pet**. Once you unlock Ardougne Knights at level 45, if you do them all the way to 99, there is a **33% chance** at getting the pet.

Now, the next two pets I am about to show you, the ** Farming **pet and the

**pet, are ridiculously rare.**

*Firemaking*__Tangleroot__*(Farming) *

In terms of farming **Trees **and** Fruit Trees**, your odds of getting a pet through to 99 are really low.

Since you don’t have to plant hundreds of thousands of trees to get to 99 Farming, the **chances of getting a pet is only 20%**. That means 1 in 5 people that get 99 farming will get the pet, which is really, really low. **Herbs**, on the other hand, give a much better chance at getting the pet, and if you go to level 99 only from Herb runs, you have **approximately a 30% - 35% chance of getting the pet**, depending on which type of Herb you use. So, if you are really chasing that Farming Pet,** definitely do Herb runs, and Tree runs at the same time**. Don’t forget to use you **Spirit tree seeds**, since they give the **best chance at getting the Farming pet. **

__Phoenix__*(Firemaking)*

Now for the ** Firemaking Phoenix **pet. On average, it takes

**about 600 – 620 Wintertodt games**to get to level 99. Judging from that, there is approximately a

**10.6% chance**of getting the Phoenix pet to 99 Firemaking. That is super rare.

__Herbiboar__*(Hunter)*

Last, but not least, we have the **Herbiboar**. You can start catching **Herbiboars** at **level 80 Hunter** as well as** level 31 in Herblore**. You are actually pretty likely to get the Herbiboar pet on the way to 99 Hunter. You can expect **about a 34.4% chance**.

Anyways, so that is all of the **Skilling Pets**. But, I would now like to put them into a table so you can see them all clumped together, and see which pets are easier to get than others. As it turns out, ** Farming **and

**at the Wintertodt both give**

*Firemaking***really low chances**at getting the pet, and you would be really lucky to get one on the way to 99.

I hope you guys liked this article, and learned something interesting. Of course, at the end of the day, Skilling Pets are super, super random. Some people get really lucky, others get really unlucky. So, I wish you all the best of luck trying to hit that Skilling Pet drop. But, until next time, thank you so much for reading this article.
